Choosing My First Job – One of the Best Decisions of My Life

choosing my first job

Do you remember when you graduated from college? Did you experience that pivotal moment where you could have had fun in your work vs. getting serious and actually start adulting? I did, and when I reflect back on those moments, I consider choosing my first job to be one of the best decisions I’ve ever made!

Choosing My First Job – One of the Best Decisions of My Life

When I was 20 years old, I was on the fast track to becoming one of America’s best future engineers. I understood the math, I was getting mostly A’s in all my classes, and I knew that it was a career that would pay me well throughout my adult life.

Then, after completing an internship in my junior year, I realized that I hated it… I liked the math and physics behind engineering, but I wasn’t a huge fan of actually . . . → Read More: Choosing My First Job – One of the Best Decisions of My Life

How Are They Making Money Off Me?

This non-money making post (;)) is written by Rocky at 30and0.com

Every business has a money maker. Many of these businesses are obvious with their strategy and charge you upfront. It’s the standard vending machine relationship. They have a thing I want and I trade money for access to it. Life is simple.

This business model is becoming scarcer as businesses are getting more and more clever at hiding their true money maker.

A perfect example of this is the Google suite of products. I don’t know how things are where you live but I have never paid for a search. I wouldn’t . . . → Read More: How Are They Making Money Off Me?

Buying a New House? Be Wary of Hidden Costs

Buying a new house is a huge commitment.

17 and Homeless to Completely Debt Free

homeless to completely debt free - depressed woman no hope

Kimberly Studdard has been writing for this site for a couple years, and until I started putting the pieces together just recently, I really had no idea what an amazing story she had. It’s not an easy one for anyone to tell, but when I discovered her struggles and now her successes, I continued to encourage her to put her story into print. I just know it will help so many others that feel helpless, overwhelmed, and incapable. You are stronger than you think. We all are. Kimberly went from 17 and homeless to completely debt free. If that’s not encouraging, I don’t know what is!

The Difference Between FIRE and Minimalism – And Why I’m Doing Neither…

difference between FIRE and minimalism

Are you unfulfilled in life? Do you ever just stop, stare blankly into the distance and wonder, “What the heck am I doing with my life?” Don’t be discouraged, you’re not alone. I think we’ve all had these feeling at times – even those of us that seem to have everything together (I’ll even admit it…I’ve asked myself this question many times!)!

And from this common feeling, people will often respond in one of three ways:

They distract themselves by buying a whole bunch of stuff – hoping that each on of those little “highs” will make them happy (ie. Materialism) They’ll start working themselves to death trying to retire early and travel the world like many other 30-somethings are doing today (ie. FIRE – Financial Independence, Retire Early) Or, they’ll go an entirely different direction and start selling off all their stuff – living with less to hopefully leave . . . → Read More: The Difference Between FIRE and Minimalism – And Why I’m Doing Neither…

Time Management is Money Management

time management is money management

Everyone has heard the saying “time is money” at least once in their life. This is one of the primary principles behind an hourly wage after all. For most people their time literally is money. Therefore…time management is money management.

Don’t think you’re above this truth because you have a salary. One of the great myths about salaries is that they somehow operate outside time. Then why is 40 hour still a standard? Beyond that research shows most people with salaries actually work more not less!

Even if you have a way of life that avoids these standard work arrangements you cannot escape this truth.
