The power of doing only one thing is often neglected.

Shaan Puri is a great example. He sold his side hustle to Twitch for $25 million. Then he went on to invest in startups like Lambda School that is replacing universities.

He wrote about one particular week recently. The outcome…

When money is always a problem you’re forced to live in fear.

That’s the harsh truth. Mastering money isn’t about Lambos. It’s about a safety net that reduces the burden of fear. With less fear you have more capacity to show courage.

I noticed something in my own life. Each…

Why are job hoppers not considered the high priests of the economy?

I have a naughty confession: I am a job hopper. As soon as I get a new job, I’m already on the hunt for the next one. A job is an experiment for me. I like to learn…

The subject of passive income can make people vomit.

The bitcoin critics are hiding in their caves.
