Being independent isn’t always easy. We want to rely on our significant others, parents, family, friends, mentors, etc. The true reality is that if you removed any of these people from your life, would you be able to stand on your own two feet?
Moving out taught me that being independent, not relying on my family for food or money required a lot of grinding on my part.
My girlfriend has been supporting my entrepreneurial journey ever since we met, and it’s finally paying off. Now that we’re in a pretty good spot, and that was all because I started…
It’s 2021, and blogging accounts for more than 50% of my income. That’s crazy to say, and it’s all thanks to Medium.
I joined Medium on my Army Deployment to Saudi Arabia back in 2019 because Gary Vaynerchuk told me it’s a great opportunity for creators.
Little did I know that Medium would become my home for writing and a means of earning money for my creativity.
Get marketable skills, put in the work, and live your life on your own terms.
That was my goal, and I achieved it. I have so much gratitude for my peers, mentors, my…
This is not a story about why I’m better than anyone else for working from a computer. This is a story about how there is an infinite number of opportunities thanks to technology.
We have to figure out what we love, what is worth our time, and what we can put up with. Luckily, I’ve found that marketing and writing are those two things.
I have always been very savvy with technology, intrigued by creating content, and sharing my thoughts. …
Subscriptions are monthly expenses that can eat away at your income if they don’t serve a valid purpose in your life.
I’ve tested the waters in a lot of different ways ever since I got my first job and these are the top subscriptions that I believe everyone should allocate money towards.
Most of the stories I write are dedicated to ways we should save money or invest it. But in a technology-driven world, we’re going to find ourselves spending and these are subscriptions I personally own and pay for that I don’t regret at all.
I’m not even a…
A pandemic probably isn’t a time when you think you’ll meet the love of your life. It’s a time where meeting anyone new is a big risk, and we’re advised to keep our distance.
Tinder is not the place where you expect to find a significant other, let alone someone you call your soul mate.
Life is really crazy, and everything happens for a reason: the timing, the connection, the bond, the love — everything.
Let me take you on a journey and a behind-the-scenes story of why I have the most amazing girlfriend in the world.
Meeting online can…
Covid took a lot of things away from us, especially live shows and live music. These were the events that gave me fulfillment, joy, and an escape from everyday life.
In comes Lollapalooza 2021, one of my favorite music festivals in the entire world, right downtown in Chicago. It’s convenient to get there, and it was a nice cool day for the festival.
My girlfriend and I waited 2–3 years before enjoying our first live show experience, which was our chance.
One of the things I found crazy about Lollapalooza is that the attendance count didn’t drop compared to two…
Everyone knows breakfast is the most important meal of the day, yet not a lot of people follow its guideline — and I’ve been guilty of it too.
Lately, I’ve been making sure to have consistent breakfast, and it’s made me a more focused, driven, and accomplished individual.
Eating breakfast is such a simple thing we were taught as kids, but we tailored off that mindset and started doing our own thing into adulthood.
Let’s go over some reasons why eating breakfast could be your life hack.
If you strive for productivity and energy, then you have to eat breakfast…
Society looks at Netflix, concerts, and museums as a distraction and it’s often frowned upon always to be escaping through entertainment.
For the past month, my girlfriend and I have been exposing ourselves to unique experiences like concerts, movies, shows, and visiting museums.
We are content. We are enjoying life. Instead of work, work work, we work hard and play hard too. Granted, it’s summer and we’re enjoying life to the fullest before the Chicago winters trap us inside.
If you are looking for inspiration, motivation, and productivity hacks, you came to the right place.
When you watch a movie…
As someone who loves Marvel movies, Disney+ exceeded my expectations with the new show, Loki. It has seven episodes and has been on the streaming service since June 9th, 2021.
If Endgame, Black Widow, and the upcoming Marvel movies aren’t for you, Loki definitely will be.
You get to dive into the world of Disney and actually binge-watch it. The creators, writers, and cast for the show are some of the best, hands down.
In most Marvel movies, Loki is often seen as a narcissistic, annoying, and insignificant character. …
When it comes to finances, it’s important to have multiple streams of income. Several income streams are important for rainy financial days, being let go, or any other type of emergency.
Currently, I work around 4 different income sources: writing on 2 platforms, a marketing job, and stock trading as a side hustle.
I was informed that one of my writing platforms would no longer be doing a base pay, so that serves as a huge dent in my income. So now I’m onto the next project. …
