So J.D. over at Get Rich Slowly is running a video contest and is asking people to submit a 2 minute or less video about a personal finance tip and/or a personal finance story. Here is my submission where I talk about my favorite personal finance tip, making the best use of your free time.

Utilizing your free time to increase your earning potential or decrease your expenses is probably the biggest key to obtaining financial success. How do you use your free time to the fullest?

Oh, isn’t the little baby so cute… oh wait this is a website. It feels like my third baby though and today it turns one and just like a baby I think it is just now starting to walk from it’s previous crawling pace. From what I hear it is a pretty big deal to survive this long which means I have made it over the hump and on the road to¬†notoriety. I whipped up another video in honor of the occasion and I am giving some stuff away.

This is my first stab at doing a video blog post so don’t hate on me to bad. I tried using a webcam but the audio sucked and the video quality was sub par, this final version of the video was shot using my iPhone and I actually think it turned out surprisingly well. If response is good I may invest in some real equipment but for now the iPhone seems to be working. I chose to do a video review because I think it will give you a better idea of how I really feel about a book, check it out and let me know what you think.
