Got another book recommendation for y’all! The More of Less, by Joshua Becker. Where that headline came from, and which should be the official bumper sticker of all minimalists, haha… “Maybe the life you’ve always wanted is buried under everything you own!” How good is that?? Similar to the book, Essentialism, I raved about the other month, this is another one that helps get your […]

You know when you’ve paid a bill for so long that it just becomes habit and you don’t even pay attention to it anymore? Because at one point in your life it made sense, but now who knows?

If someone asked you to save $1,000 right now, could you do it? How would it make you feel? What would you cut back on? (Or would you need to go out and find a new hustle??) $1,000 is a lot of money no matter what position you’re in. And if someone told me to save it on the spot I’d probably first sigh, and […]

You know what’s funny? Our political candidates. You know what’s funny in a GOOD way? Bill Murray :) (20 mins before show time at The Kennedy Center) I had a chance to watch him be honored at this year’s annual Mark Twain Prize for American Humor sponsored by Capital One (thanks for the tix, guys!), and with all the guest comedians that showed up I […]

Okay, so today was supposed to be a post about hustling and earning more money, and then it changed when I offered up my seats to an older couple 15 minutes ago (I’m at Starbucks) and they started reading an email they got out loud.

Thumbnail image for Some Tricks That Help Me Be Better at Life

In college I used to do this thing where I’d treat myself to a new t-shirt anytime I’d take a test. It didn’t matter if I did well on the test or not (as long as I fully completed it, the perk was activated!), but as crazy as it sounds, it actually did wonders to my psyche! Not that I wasn’t going to take the […]

You know what’s hard? Making your first million dollars. [Dayuuuuuum!!!] For us normal people, though, I say making your first $100,000 is the ultimate achievement. You can’t make it to a million or a billion without first hitting $100,000, but even more than that – it requires a complete overhaul of both your money and your mindset. You literally go from knowing jack crap to […]

Raise your hand if you’re a millionaire? Raise your hand if you’re a wannabe millionaire? Raise your hand if you could care less about how many millions you have?
