There for the taking: An attempt at the #2017FlipChallenge

When I found out about Gary Vaynerchuk‘s 2017FlipChallenge, it was late March. The challenge is simple. Take the stuff laying around your house/condo/apartment and sell it with the target of earning $20,170 for the year. Fairly straightforward. But, I will let Gary Vee lay it all out for you.

I was excited to start. Ready to find and post all the items I could. But, I ran into one little roadblock – I had already given away, donated, recycled,  or thrown out hundreds of things in the months leading up to the discovery of the 2017FlipChallenge.

I had to get creative, tweak some rules, and see how much I could make in a little over eight months.

Lazy Sunday Morning Links Vol. 13

Far too long between round-ups, but here we are. Two months since the last Sunday Morning Links.  I knew an infant would mess with my schedule but not to this extent. Fun Fact: It took 9 hours for me to complete my Travel post on Friday.

Now… To Links!

Just Start! A look back at 30 straight days on Twitch

When I originally began the Minimalist Gamer idea in February, one of the criteria I set was Be Streamable. Until recently, this was the only item I was not living up to with the project. Adjusting to life with an infant did change my gaming habits. Spending most of my day carrying Devlin meant certain games (Overwatch) were not able to be played. This should not have stopped me from fulfilling the streaming portion, but, for some reason it did.

In September, I decided to commit to Twitch.

Lazy Sunday Morning Links Vol. 12

Welcome to another installment of Sunday Morning Links!

It is great to be back on the site and updating again. If you haven’t already, please check out Monday’s post. Of course, on my first full week back I lose two days due to a technical issue, but SSL is now working. Hopefully, Google is much friendlier to the site.

Now, links!

Presentation: The Four – What To DoA brilliant presentation from Scott Galloway, Professor of Marketing at the NYU Stern School of Business and Founder of L2, that shares how the traditional rules of business don’t apply to the Big Four (Apple, Amazon, Facebook, and Google) and identify ways that brands and companies can fight back.

Lazy Sunday Morning Links Vol.10

The Sunday Morning Links return after a few weeks away. I’ll be honest, my motivation was just not what it needed to be to get the posts completed. Also, I very little content to share from being head down in work. Now, things have slowed down and I was able to go down a few rabbit holes. Below is what I found.

Video: Hard Times by Paramore | I have been listening to this new Paramore track way too much since it dropped on Thursday. Paramore has been a constant in my life since 2005. Songs from All We Know is Falling still have a spot on my running mixes. The new song is hit of 80s nostalgia mixed with mid-aughts pop-punk. My wheelhouse.

Lazy Sunday Morning Links Vol.9

Happy April! I hope yesterday, with all of its jokes and pranks, didn’t leave you too tired to read stuff on the internet.  We return to the standard Sunday morning links format today. No jokes, only my favorite things of the past seven days.

Watch: Minimalism | The documentary from The Minimalist that hit me like a dump truck last year and kicked things into overdrive for me is now available worldwide on Netflix. Find an hour, watch it, and let me know what you think.

Lazy Sunday Morning Links Vol.8 – Blog Edition

The Sunday Morning links are a wee bit late thanks to a nasty head cold. Rest and Warcraft have been most of the last three days for me. Apologies for the lack of posts this week. Hopefully, I am cleared up and have renewed focus in the next few days.

This week’s post is a tad different as it is all resources for start and maintaining a blog. Enjoy!

Blog: 15 Reasons I Think You Should Blog by Becoming Minimalist | Joshua Becker is one of my mainstay bloggers. If this post doesn’t connect, there is no real reason to continue with the rest of the links.

Lazy Sunday Morning Links Vol.7

Another Sunday. Another group of links. Gonna keep this short and sweet this morning because I have three levels to get through on the Paladin today to have the leveling plan complete. I am excited to move on to new plans in preparation for 7.2. Watch out for more in blog posts this week.

Let’s dive into the links, shall we?

Lazy Sunday Morning Links Vol.5

 

Happy Sunday, everyone. Hope your week went as well as it could have. I am already beginning to lose track of the days after one month of this little project. Last week was easy. This week is hard. Prepping for baby is eating into my personal time. Why I know I should not be surprised, I still am. But, enough about my struggles. You’re here for links.

Song:   Gravity by Jasmine Kara | Guilty pleasure time. This track has been on repeat for me since I discovered it a couple weeks ago. I love Swedish dance pop and this hits all the right marks. All the signs of a breakout summer song right here.
