Look. Your job probably sucks, and you’re probably getting underpaid for it. Odds are — that’s going to be your life. One 50-year slog to nowhere in particular, while costs of living skyrocket and wages stagnate and the global order changes faster than you can keep up. I don’t say that to rattle you; I say that to inspire you.
I’ve held a bunch of different jobs in my day: bartender, weatherman, copywriter, regular writer, among others. I sucked at most of them but got paid pretty well at a few. …
When we’re young, one of the most annoying phrases we’ll hear is, “you’ll understand when you’re older.” This common and seemingly condescending phrase always comes at the most inconvenient times, usually when we think we understand something but then realize later that we don’t, and of course, we’re eventually proven wrong.
But that’s how we learn, right?
We have to see it and experience it for ourselves. And it isn’t until we actually see and experience things on our own that we truly understand what people mean when they say that phrase.
I used to take offense whenever people said…
I am just 23, and I’ve already had some great mentors in my life. They usually — as they always do — came from unexpected places. Places you’d never expect.
My first mentor was my father. I’ve learned a lot from him about the value of discipline, rigorous work ethic, and the value of high-quality education. He introduced me to many books on life, business, and personal growth, which in turn helped me find remote mentors — so-called “heroes”. Following his footsteps, I applied to a business college.
My second mentor came at college. He was an Entrepreneur-In-Residence who also…
The cryptocurrency market is understandably tantalizing. You hear stories about average joes making insane, life-altering fortunes. There’s an unparalleled sensation of missing out.
But if you’re going to place your money and faith in crypto, you have to treat it like an investment — not a mindless gamble.
Otherwise, you jeopardize your financial wellbeing. You could make catastrophic mistakes, dry up your liquidity, dig yourself into suffocating debt, and lose a fortune.
For every instant-millionaire the media glamorizes, there are dozens of people who dumped their life savings into a ticking time bomb. These people bought into the idea of…
‘Damn!’ I thought.
As I crunched numbers on Dave Ramsay’s Investment calculator, I realized you could stream roll to a million dollar portfolio with a relatively low monthly investment.
Just how low? And how many years would it take you?
Let’s take guesses.
Vote now on your phones.
Let’s say you’re 25 years old and want to retire by the time you’re 40 (good for you), how exactly would you accomplish that? Since this is the Post-Grad Survival Guide, let’s get into it.
This is Dave Ramsay’s Investment Calculator. It’s pretty nifty…
I used to be one of those impatient people who gave up on things very quickly. However, last year things changed. I kept working on my side hustles even when I couldn’t see a light at the end of the tunnel because a small part of me believed I could succeed.
After a few months, I was so glad to see that my hard work was paying off as money started to come in from all the projects I was working on in my spare time.
Fast forward to today, and I’ve made more than $35,000 from my side hustles…
One year ago, I had to face a decision that turned my life around.
I had to decide between starting a full-time job at a renowned Fortune Global 500 company — let’s just call it Motor — and uncovering my personal blind spot.
You see, back then, I was finishing up my studies and simultaneously working as a trainee at Motor. The deal was simple:
If I continuously delivered good work as a trainee, I could start working full time at Motor as soon as I graduated.
And indeed, everything lined up for me to have a prosperous career at…
I used to drag my ass out of bed at 7, shower, grab my coffee, and run out the door. I was acting out the belief that externally imposed discipline was granting me freedom — in the form of (not enough) money and free time.
2 years later, I wake up at 6, meditate, enjoying writing for a while, eat a great breakfast, exercise, and enjoy a scheduled day of creativity. I’m acting out the belief (imperfectly) that my discipline is my freedom.
The difference is the underlying motivation. That took years for me to change. …
The digital nomad revolution is upon us. And, this time, it’s the real deal.
For about a decade, we’ve seen people all around the world unhook their leash and begin a journey that has come to be known as digital nomadism.
A career journey unlike any other. Utilizing the power of the Internet to make an income from cafes around the world. Letting go of the traditional 9 to 5 office job in favor of something a little more freeing.
It has a good ring to it. It’s an easy sell if you ask me.
However, until now, the digital…
When I started working for myself a year ago, I felt bombarded with suggestions on structuring my days. I was overwhelmed by conflicting advice and struggled to find a balance between hustle and rest.
This is the article I wish I’d had when starting to work for myself. I skipped the self-help fluff and distilled what made my days such a massive force for achievement and joy.
The following structure helped me earn a consistent +$5K monthly income, generated through writing, podcasting, and consulting.
You may not like all of these suggestions, or you might have great routines for some…
