Any of you around when I tried living like Benjamin Franklin for an entire week? Failing miserably at half his routine, but rocking the 5 am wake-ups? I don’t know how the man did it (oh wait, yes I did – he never took care of his kids or house!!), but I give him credit for being completely obsessed with his trade. And hey, the […]

Three years ago I stumbled across a passage from Mr. Money Mustache that completely changed how I view my expenses. It came from an article I had read on many occasions prior – and is one of his most popular – but for whatever reason it never hit me as hard as it did then, perhaps because I wasn’t open enough to fully appreciate it […]

Okay, so I’m sitting next to someone at Starbucks right now that just inspired the crap out of me. She asked me if I worked online because she always sees me typing away, and when I told her I did, she immediately jumped into her life story, wondering if it was worth sharing as well on a blog or something. 45 minutes later I gave […]

Remember when I joked the other day about creating a “List Out All Your Accomplishments” Day in order to counteract all the New Years Resolution #fails most of us end up getting? So we feel better about ourselves and actually give ourselves credit for achieving stuff? Well, I was going to just leave it at that, but then I came across an old journal of […]
