GRS is on winter vacation

Hey there, GRS fans. Just a quick note to let you know that I’m taking a short break from the blog. In part, this is because Kim and I (and the dog) are in the middle of a Real Life vacation to the Oregon Coast. It’s been too cold and windy and wet to spend…


Back to normal (mostly)

Hey, everybody. Just a quick note to let you know that Get Rich Slowly is ready to resume normal operations…sort of. I took the past week off to work on business stuff behind the scenes. Turns out that there’s way more to do than I had expected — and I had expected a lot. My…

Why Netflix Is Winning at Digital Marketing

Stranger Things, Orange is the New Black, Black Mirror, Altered Carbon, House of Cards, 13 Reasons Why…should I go on? I could. It doesn’t take much imagination to see that Netflix is killing it in the streaming world. They’re the king of original video content and they’re still bringing enough outside options to not seem…


Status Update

Just a quick note to let you all know that my “work vacation” is going well. I’m in the middle of 7-10 days off from publishing new money articles here to focus exclusively on the business side of the blog. So far, so good. I’m getting tons done because I know I don’t have to…
