[3] Paul: You created the Homebuying Blueprint, what made you created such a blue print? Is it really any useful to us?
Paul: The homebuying blueprint just follows my journey in buying a house and it'd be useful if you've never bought a house before. It's written from the perspective of a total novice so anyone can read it and understand it.

[4] Paul: How did you manage to find all those bargains in your website?
Paul: I look on other bargain sites but a lot of the deals are emailed to me by the vendors themselves.

[5] Paul: Where did you get all those information you have there in your websites? It’s all very informative.

[6] Paul: Has running this website and writing all these articles been useful in your life?
Paul: It's helped me understand a lot of new idea and concepts while improving my ability to write. I've also met a lot of very interesting and engaging bloggers, it has opened up a whole new world for me.

[7] Paul: If we ask you to give one advice to our readers out there, what would it be? Why?
Paul: There is no blueprint or instruction manual to life. You can do whatever you want, whenever you want, and you shouldn't be afraid to break the mold.

[8] Paul: Now that your website is worth $ 62,663.94, any plans to sell it? =p
Paul: If someone offered $62k for it, they'd be the proud new owner of a website. In fact, the little applet thing values it at $72k or something like that now – but I'd take $62k.

[9] Paul: We were reading Rich Dad, Poor Dad the other day, we were quite impressed with the content, you reckoned the advices listed will be useful for us?
Paul: It depends on your point of view. The power of Rich Dad, Poor Dad is that it educates you on a new way of thinking about your possessions and your money. I didn't find it useful because it didn't teach me anything new but for many people it's an eye-opener. The books I find useful are those that teach investing strategies because I know very little about it.

[10] Paul: Last question, anything exciting we can expect from you in the coming months?
Paul: I don't have anything planned for the next few months but every so often I get ideas sent to me that pique my interest. I'm always open to hearing new things.
