The Internet is full of stories from perpetual travelers, galloping around the globe for several years in a row and posting amazing shots and pics on their social media. When you look at those accounts, the obvious question that pops to your mind is “how they can even afford to travel for so long?”.
When my parents see me and the latest video game consoles (e.g., Nintendo Switch), they love to rehash the stories of when they got their first video game.

Recently, Uber put self driving cars back on the road, nine months after a woman was struck and killed by one in Arizona. This action represents a very pared down return to the company’s self driving car initiative, and includes many safety precautions.
Drones are becoming exceptionally popular. Just as you might expect, so is drone footage. A few years ago, you couldn’t get far on any social media page without catching Gopro video. Now, everyone is sharing their drone footage. There are just two problems with this. A good portion of drone content sucks. It’s also…
Tell your friends and family that you are traveling abroad,
and one thing is sure. At least one person is going to share a ‘horror story’
about some poor soul being left high and dry without any money in a foreign
land. Whatever you do, don’t let stories like this kill your sense of
Let’s be honest. Budgeting is a drag. It involves a slew of not very fun activities. You’ve got to figure out your bills vs. your income, track your expenses, and figure out exactly how much you have to live on. Then you’ve got to do the emotional ninjitsu required to conjure up the self-discipline to live within your…
If I were to name one word for 2018, that would be “data security”. Last year, a lot of big name brands have fallen prey to hackers - Mariotte, MyHeritage, Google+ and Facebook of course. Apart from congress hearings and the aftermaths of Cambridge Analytica scandal, Facebook is facing a billion dollars in fines…
You’ve just launched your online company, perhaps as a plan to make extra cash in the new year. There’s no marketing team. There’s certainly no six figure marketing budget. It’s just you, and maybe some friends and family members you’ve recruited along the way. You know there are people who are interested in your…
If Facebook hearings taught us one thing
it is that your personal information is very easy to steal and use for some
shady purposes without your knowledge or consent.
Call it Millennial ennui, or just plain dissatisfaction with careers that are more than a little lackluster if you want. All I know is that there is a disturbing trend among my friends. So many of them are absolutely miserable in their jobs. They want to make a change, but they don’t know how.
You’ve done it (or almost done it!). You are about to join the masses of people who are leaving the traditional office behind in order to work remotely. Congratulations! You stand to save between 2k and 7k per year thanks to this decision. You already know the other benefits; less stress, one less car on the road, no…
A few years ago, an aspiring Wes Anderson would score a cheap super 8 camera and get to work filming whatever caught their eye. That’s how many of the best known directors today got their starts.
Lots of high school athletes think they are going to make it in the pros. Lots of aspiring actors move to Hollywood area, convinced they will make it big. Lots of kids who start a band are certain they will be “discovered.”
It’s becoming more and more common for people to seek out supplemental sources of income. While side hustles like freelance writing, web design, or even just getting an extra part time job are popular, there are a lot of people seeking out more passive ways to make money. Phone farming, where people make small amounts…
It was so easy when they were young. They were excited about anything new or different. And entertaining them was as simple as stopping by a small amusement park, taking a boat ride, swimming, fishing, etc.
The threshold for starting a side-hustle these days has significantly decreased. You don’t need savings or a loan to rent out a storefront - you can DIY a digital one with relative ease; you no longer need to warehouse products - there are a companies to do that for you.
I admit it. I am a tech junkie. I can’t wait for driverless cars, and the thought of having a smart fridge that reminds me of grocery shopping and goods to spoil is definitely on my bucket list.
