Happy New Year! Stocks, Cryptocurrencies, and 2018

Hey Money Badasses!

How’s it going?!?! 

I’m so glad to be back at it again! 

I’ve had a wonderful couple weeks with the family celebrating Christmas and the New Year! I hope you did as well.

The Shepherd Christmas 2018

There’s a TON of new stuff happening in the world of money and investing and I’m going to be writing about it all.

2017 has been a huge year for Let’s Automate Your Money. The community is growing every day and I’m focused on giving you guys everything you need to be a Money Badass in 2018.

I’ve got a lot of plans in store for all of you. My goal at Let’s Automate Your Money is to teach you how to be a MONEY BADASS! It’s time for us to take our money back from greedy companies and the excessively rich.

I’m going to teach you how all year long. Strap in. It’s gonna be a wild ride.


To start off the new year I’ve got a QUICK AND DIRTY 2018 TAX REFORM GUIDE to give you a quick rundown on what is changing with the new tax reform.

I know, I know… Taxes are boring and just downright suck, but you need to know what’s changing so you don’t get screwed. The rich are figuring out how they can pay the least they possibly can and you should be too!

This guide will give you the basic info you need to know about the changes. I’ll be sharing more info throughout out the year on how you can “hack” your money to pay the least taxes as possible just like the rich.


I finished out the year STRONG in my experimental account, “THE MONEY BADASS STOCK PORTFOLIO.”

If you’re not familiar with it, “THE MONEY BADASS PORTFOLIO,” is my stock investment account I use to invest in stocks without worrying about all the typical investment advice.

I go in trying to make the best returns I can. It’s paid off this year as I finished the year with a 69% return as you can see below:

In comparison, the stock market (S&P 500) finished the year with a 19% return (check it out here)

Not bad at all…


I’m still very early in my experiments with cryptocurrencies but I was able to get about a 75% return. That sounds awesome but it was with a very small amount of money ($200) and I only had it invested for a few weeks. 

This year will be a better gauge of how much of a return I can pull in on cryptocurrencies.


I’m writing away at THAT BADASS MONEY HANDBOOK. I’m shooting to have all 3 workbooks plus some extra bonuses done by April. I can’t wait to get this in your hands. I think this is one of the easiest and funnest ways to learn how to manage your money and become a MONEY BADASS!

See you next week!
