Debriefing: June 2010 – Whirlwind of Craziness Edition

Ah, June. What can I say? It went by in quite the whirlwind.  All in all, not too shabby, though!

Last month we saw the official launch of Riskology.co – the shot heard ’round the world, the site got quite a mention from MSN Money, and I published my first guest post at Lateral Action to help artists kick start their businesses.

All of this hulabaloo brought in a tremendous amount of new readers and the pool of riskologists (that’s you!) is growing every single day.

If you’re new here, let me extend you a warm welcome. I’m so glad to have you. June was a big month, but if I can get my act together, July will be even bigger.


Every new month we’ll look back at the last one and do a little debriefing about what’s happened around Riskology.co. If you’ve missed anything, this is great place to catch up.

From the Blog

In June, I gave a spiel about how balance is for the uncoordinated, revealed that “removing emotion” may not actually be your best bet, revealed the lessons I learned about little milestones on my very first mountain climb, and recounted a personal story about the day I bought $15,000 (ah, the memories).

Also, June saw the kick-off of my series on the 5 pillars pf awesome risk-taking. So far we’ve covered:


Last month was fun and things aren’t changing. In addition to the final pillar of awesome risk-taking, here are a few things you can expect to see in July:

  • A shockingly easy way to add 8 years and more than $100,000 to your life (so easy you’ll wish you’d started a lot earlier).
  • An article about a sacred productivity tip that’s actually a complete myth you should ignore.
  • A warning about your perfect life (don’t worry, you can still get everything you want).
  • An interview with Everett Bogue, author at Far Beyond the Stars who helps people take risks and build businesses using the principles of minimalism.

Also, all you folks out there dying to finally quit your job and get on with life might be happy to know that I’m making great progress on my completely free resource to help you do just that without freaking out about money. It’s about 6,000 words right now, but I’ve got a few more important things to say, so don’t be surprised if it grows a little before I release it.

It’s also going to come with a tutorial video to help you sort out some hard to explain tips. It should be off to the designers soon (they’ll make it look pretty for us) and then into your hot little hands. I can’t wait!

How You Can Get Involved

I feel so stinkin’ lucky just to be able to write at Riskology.co for you, and even more lucky that a lot of you have written in wondering how you can help spread the word. So thanks!

Here are the best ways to make Riskology.co an even better place for even more people:

Leave a comment on an article that you have an opinion about. I try to ask a question for you to answer at the end of each piece because I firmly believe that you can learn more from a blog’s readers than you can from the writer.

Share an article with your friends on Twitter, Facebook or any other site you hang out at. If you use a bookmarking site like StumbleUpon or Digg, submit any article you like there.

Hook up with me on Twitter and Facebook to share ideas.

Or, of course, you could do whatever else you want to spread the message. There are no rules because that’s kind of the whole point around here.

Over and out,
