As of November of 2015… I have done 32 loans from Kiva by only investing a total of $114 of my own money.  The people I’ve invited to Kiva have made 70 loans totaled.  That’s awesome.  So I’m going to put more of my money into Kiva and also get more people into it.

Step 1: Watch the Video to see what is Kiva.

Step 2: Click the link and try and do a little $25 loan to someone to see how it works..  http://www.kiva.org

Previous 101 List Completed | Stocks Go Up + Stocks Go Down

Sunday, September 23rd, 2012

On my list of 101 things to do in 1001 days  I completed #1 on my list:  Open an investment trading account where I can trade stocks and transfer in my current investments over into one plan.

I opened an account with TD Waterhouse near the start of 2012 and I opened a TFSA account.  I made four purchases into Research in Motion, Under Armour, Fusion IO and First Solar to start off with then General Motors.  I’m a Nike guy… but Under Armour is doing great things with professional athletes and they are moving into the women’s market next year.  RIM has gotten the crap kicked out of them and it’s nice to buy something on “sale”.  Things will better for RIM in 2012 with the neat stuff they want to deliver in 2nd Quarter of 2012.  Fusion IO is a really cool company with it’s Memory Platform has brought some of the biggest companies to it’s door step to use it’s technology to run their servers and handle incredible amounts of data.  First Solar was purchased from it’s position in the marketplace.  This Arizona company makes thin solar film.  They recently opened a huge plant in Germany and have it running at capacity to meet the demand from European countries looking to find alternative energy sources.

Little update for fun:  Returns are from Dec 21st, 2011 to March 12th, 2014:

General Motors up 73%

First Solar up 68%

Fusion IO down 38%

Under Armour up 216%  (wild and they are still growing… )

Research In Motion down 26%

#63 Completed | Get a credit card with a points/reward system that works for my life.

I got a RBC Virtual Visa Debit card that is connected to my bank account that allows me to make purchases where Visa is accepted and the money comes out of my bank account instead of credit.  My goal was to get a rewards card…but so far… I have not found one that I really want that makes the most “cents” to get.

I like the fact that I got rid of my credit card and basically live off what I have.  Live simple.
