Big Personal Finance eBook Giveaway Contest

Big Personal Finance eBook Giveaway Contest

I figured it's been a while since I hosted a giveaway contest here at Modest Money. In the past I would give away cash or physical prizes like iPads. That stuff is cool and all, but it doesn't really seem to fit in with a personal finance blog. Sure the cash might help your finances, but for a lot of people a windfall like that is going to be spent on something unnecessary … [Read more...]

oDesk and Their Misadventure Into Minimum Wages

oDesk and Their Misadventure Into Minimum Wages

Previously I wrote about my displeasure with oDesk. For those of you not in the know, oDesk is a site where you can hire online contractors for all kinds of work.

I don't say this because I now have unlimited freedom to hang out with friends. I don't say that because I have been busy enjoying the summer as much as I can. I don't say that because I can work as little hours I want. Do you know … [Read more...]

Jumping Back Into Self Employment

Jumping Back Into Self Employment

As some of you already know I recently made the jump back in self employment. Ok it was actually a couple months ago but I've been working too hard to fit in any kind of announcement. I had been itching to make the move for a while now. Once you get that taste of self employment, I think most people will usually want to give it another shot eventually. Not only is the … [Read more...]

What’s Up With The Ghetto Retail Payment Processing in the US?

What’s Up With The Ghetto Retail Payment Processing in the US?

I think the US likes to think of themselves as a fairly tech savvy country. They might not be right at the forefront like some Asian countries, but technology is rather prevalent in the USA. According to US Census, in 2012 nearly 75% of households had internet access at home and almost 80% had a computer at home. These are higher rates than any other country in the world and … [Read more...]
