One of my most popular posts is about how to make more money, and in that post, I discuss that I am a member of Pinecone Research.
This morning, I received an e-mail that Pinecone Research is accepting new panel members. Click here to join. I get nothing for referring you, but I wanted to share this great opportunity. Pinecone Research has been a great program to be a part of. Lots of interesting surveys that ask about new products about to enter the market and these surveys do pay upon completion. No need to wait until you’ve earned a set amount of money.
Definitely worth a look, but hurry! I don’t know how long this opportunity will be available!
Megan is a 40-something government employee in the Washington, DC area. She got interested in Personal Finance when she got out of college and realized that her paycheck wasn’t going to go as far as she had hoped. Since starting this blog, she has managed to buy a house and make a solid start on her retirement goals, and hopes to help others do the same. Here is her story:
In 2007, I was a gainfully employed 20-something with no debt but not a lot of knowledge about personal finance. It was a co-worker’s comment about Roth IRAs that sent me to the internet, searching for information. It was then that I realized that I really didn’t know a whole lot about personal finance and that my current financial situation was due a lot to inherent frugal tendencies, generous family members, a fear of debt, and good luck. While that was working for me, clearly I needed a better plan.
While I had no debt, I was also pretty much living paycheck to paycheck and not worrying about going over budget (I say this as if I had a real budget) because I had an emergency fund set aside to cover any overages.
Except that’s not what an emergency fund is for.
So I did a lot of research, read a lot of blogs, and decided that I needed a plan. I needed to budget. I needed to know what I was spending my money on. I needed to prepare for the future.
I decided to create a blog not only to make myself accountable to others but also to share the knowledge that I gained along the way. I’ve learned so much from my fellow bloggers, and I hope that my readers can find something useful in what I have to share as well.

Thanks for the heads up! I’ve been waiting for at least 6 months for them to open up for new panelists. I submitted my application.
