So, how are your New Year’s resolutions to get happy and healthy coming along? For Gary Ryan Blair—aka the GoalsGuy—your resolutions are really working out.

Blair is the mastermind behind GotResolutions.com, which encourages people to make every choice count. (And to make one of those choices buying a GoalsGuy video seminar, of course.)

Of the site’s 38,000 visitors in 2009, debt relief is one of the trendiest resolutions. Blair says that for the first time in his self-help career, he’s guiding more people trying to lose debt than lose weight.

Blair’s advice? Don’t be afraid to confront the “good, bad, and ugly truths” of these tough times. Such counsel may seem crucial for some. But be forewarned—the program costs $59.95.

We've never been very good at being conservative.

And usually, that serves us well in doing the ambitious, hard-hitting journalism that you turn to Mother Jones for. But it also means we can't afford to come up short when it comes to scratching together the funds it takes to keep our team firing on all cylinders, and the truth is, we finished our budgeting cycle on June 30 about $100,000 short of our online goal.

This is no time to come up short. It's time to fight like hell, as our namesake would tell us to do, for a democracy where minority rule cannot impose an extreme agenda, where facts matter, and where accountability has a chance at the polls and in the press. If you value our reporting and you can right now, please help us dig out of the $100,000 hole we're starting our new budgeting cycle in with an always-needed and always-appreciated donation today.
