Milestone Checkpoint
How am I doing so far?

Ok, so you guys probably remember my ambitious project for

I detailed it here as a sort of very delayed New Year's Resolution (so I named I themed it in the Chinese Year, which started in February).

My goal is to produce 100 solid pages of content on the site by the end of 2017.

For a page to be "solid" it has to be at least 1,000 words, and be SEO optimized for an in-demand keyword related to forex.

I mapped out how many pages to publish per week with a heavy emphasis on the summer.

So how am I doing now that summer is upon us?

The ideal was to have 34 solid pages before the start of summer.

I have published 21.

Which means I have a backlog of 13 pages to produce.

What happened?

I've been playing my own version of Super Mario Bros.

This is how I felt when I started the process (which is how I normally feel):

Since October of last year (2016 for those who ain't counting):

1. I lost 41 pounds of bodyweight.

2. Just completed the 1st year of a top MBA program in the United States (and worldwide).

While there are no excuses. I've had my hands full!

You see, the amount of time and effort required for me to pull those things off...

Well, this is how I feel as I type this:


I'll reveal more of my identity and some of those personal projects later.

For now though, we have a beautiful summer and I don't have to attend class, team meetings, or do homework/class projects of any kind.

Wait, but don't you have a summer internship?

No. I knew I wanted to build something of my own, but I also knew that if I got a job offer I would take it.

So I made the decision not to recruit for traditional jobs.

Thus, I have the summer to dedicate to any project I want ( I'm looking at you).

There is another forex-related project I'll be working on for the summer. But I'll unveil that later (Bwahaahhaha).

So that's it folks, expect to see more content published throughout the summer.

I can't make hard promises, but I'll strive to keep a good pipeline of content going... before the nightmare (School) starts again.

Good Luck with your trading.
