It's July! Which means we are officially halfway through the year (where has 2017 gone?) and 4 months into my runemployment journey. As always, a quick reminder from The Path to Profitability on my key financial milestones: Milestone #1 = Make $1 [COMPLETE!] Milestone #2 = Breakeven (make . . .
Before we get any further into the month of June, let's take a quick look back at May and our performance on the financial front. As you may recall from The Path to Profitability, I've outlined several key financial milestones for myself: Milestone #1 = Make $1 . . .
Now that we've established my 3 Steps to Ultramarathoning Success, let's get into the nitty gritty of how I'm going to turn this "success" into financial stability. When I set out on this new journey, my first financial goal was to make $1 from my running. As my former boss would say at Square, "If . . .
On February 17th, I received my last paycheck as a Square employee.

Passed out like a rock last night for almost 8 full hours of sleep. Good start to the day. 7:00a Weighed-in at 162.8lbs — must still be dehydrated . . .
After dragging my feet for more than a month to publish my second blog post last Saturday, I challenged myself: publish blog #3 in less than a week!
