Hey guys,

In response to my recent post Chatteling to $50,000 by December 31st (http://www.sowpub.com/forum/showthread.php?p=31802), I have decided to create an official challenge thread. It seems like there are some other people on here who would like to have some fun, learn to chattel better and put some Benjamins in their pockets.

This is what this thread is for if the moderators are okay with it.

Before we get started it would probably help to lay down some guidelines of what specifically this thread is for and what I'm trying to accomplish by creating it.

To start with you should probably understand my basic plan and see if it's something you might want to try for yourself with some modifications.

My basic plan is to hit one, two or three of my target goals of $5,000, $25,000, or $50,000 by December 31st using the vehicle of Chatteling. The reason I set three goals was because the $50,000 goal excites me, it's only 17 weeks away and I feel that if I could do that it would be a big accomplishment. The other two goals are my guidelines, even if I don't hit my $50,000 goal by then they'll at least give me a way to make a reasonable estimate of the amount of time it would take me to hit that goal. Once I understand what it will take I can either adjust my plan or find a new plan. The other bonus is even if I don't hit it, at least I'll have $5000 in my pocket :)

Next you should understand what I'll be sharing in this thread. I have decided that since this forum has been a great addition to my life, I'm going to share the products I find and sell, triumphs, failures, stats and tactics. The only things I am not going to share are information someone else has charged me for or shared with me privately otherwise I'll do my best to be an open book and share what I've learned.

Now for my disclaimer, I am doing this challenge and sharing my results because I think it will be fun. This forum is filled with the most knowledgeable, kind and generous people I've ever met on the internet and I'm going to try and give back a little of what I've already gained in the week or so I've been here. If I stop having fun or feel it's in my best interest to stop pursuing the project I'm going to do so, but I urge you to keep going if you're enjoying it. I also won't take any responsibility for you, your purchases and outcome of participating, the world's a crazy place and sometimes things workout differently for different people.

Now that you know the basic plan, what I'm doing and why I'm doing it I think you should decide if this would be something you could have fun with as well.

If it is, commit to doing it with me with a short post of your stated goals, expectations and plan below. I look forward to hearing from you and sharing an adventure.

I'm already having fun and learning new things, come join me!
