In case you’re new, once a month I take time to share a business update along with a personal update. Since I do write a lot about finance, I think it’s important that I remain transparent about my plans for Gen Y Wealth. Let’s get started…
The most important measure of success I have with Gen Y Wealth is email subscribers. On October 31st, I had 213 email subscribers. As I write this on December, 1st, I have 246. My goal with email subscribers is to always grow my list by 10% each month. A feat I was able to accomplish in November. (:

I’m very happy with my Alexa ranking. My goal, was to climb into the top 200,000 websites by the end of 2010. It’s going to take a very strong December, but with some hard work and a little marketing, I think I can get there.
As for the rest of the traffic statistics, they were pretty much even. The top referring website for November was Get Rich Slowly.
I reapplied to become a Certified Financial Planner® earlier this week.
In order to become a Certified Financial Planner® you need three years of qualified experience. According to the CFP® Board, only around 80% of what I do qualifies. Therefore, I have had to work around 3 1/2 years to gain the full three years of experience.
Once I become a CFP®, I plan on offering my financial planning services to members of Gen Y Wealth. Five years ago, this wouldn’t have been possible. Now with the ease of online communication, I can offer my services to those all over the U.S. I’m still working on the details and software that will allow me to do this, but you can expect plenty more on this to come.
