What do I mean by that? I spend so much time traveling around the world that I haven’t really settled down anywhere. I don’t know what country I’m going to live in next year. Heck, I don’t even know where I’m going to be in three months time.
I wander from one place to another with no particular goal in mind. I just want to be happy and live a meaningful life. The type of life where I can look back and say to myself, “wow… that was pretty damn good.”
I’m pretty good at collecting accents. Drop me in…
A lot of people don’t like being alone. They have a desire to go to large parties, meet hundreds of people, and have long conversations until the early hours of the morning.
That’s not me. I prefer being alone with my thoughts, reflecting on the past, and thinking about everything that the future has to offer.
Why? I don’t know. But it’s a natural part of who I am. I can’t help it. So instead of wishing for my personality to be extroverted, I read, write, and do many other things that you’d expect a typical introvert to do.
Something that takes you five seconds to do could change the way a stranger sees and interacts with other people. Think of it as a ripple effect. You show kindness to one person, and they pass it on. And before you know it, the entire world is a better place because of one positive interaction you had with a stranger.
My friend, you can have a much more significant impact on the world than you think. What you do every single day could potentially change the world. …
In three day’s time, a decision to walk to the local coffee shop might result in you meeting the love of your life. Or maybe, you don’t bother looking both ways while crossing the road and end up getting hit by a car.
A few weeks ago, I decided to walk to the nearby bank to get some cash out of the ATM. But on my way home, I nearly got hit by a speeding truck. If I took just half a second longer to jump out of the way, I wouldn’t be able to write this article right now…
I used to wake up every morning feeling anxious, depressed, and bored out of my mind. I didn’t enjoy life. Nor did I love what I was doing in my career. Every single day felt the same. Eat. Sleep. Work. Repeat.
As you can imagine, I desperately wanted to break the monotony of my daily routine. I hated it. The only problem? For a long time, I had absolutely no idea where to start.
But one day, I had a conversation with a friend named Harry. He was pretty successful and seemed to enjoy life. …
Margaret Dickson was born in 1702 in Musselburgh, Scotland. She was a fish and salt merchant who married a local fisherman. But soon after getting married, he quickly moved away. According to historical reports, her husband was either conscripted into the Royal Navy or moved to Newcastle, searching for employment.
Maggie decided to start working in an inn, in a town called Kelso, to earn a little bit of money. There, she became pregnant, reportedly by the innkeeper’s son, quite quickly. But since she was scared of getting evicted and losing her job, Maggie proceeded to keep the pregnancy secret.
I began making YouTube videos approximately two weeks ago.
Since then, I’ve become somewhat of an internet sensation. You see, I posted a video that got three views. Yes, you read that correctly. Three!
Pretty impressive… right? Making online content is something that I’ve wanted to do since I was a little kid. I remember telling my friends that someday, I would make a viral video. They didn’t believe me. But look at me now. I’m famous.
Anyway, I was having a chat with my Uber driver this morning (I was filming another vlog). He asked what I do for…
When I first started writing about personal finance, people told me to shut up.
“Matt… you don’t have a degree in economics. Please don’t do it again. You’re not qualified to talk about money.”
Honestly, I don’t care. My personal opinion is that money shouldn’t be a taboo subject that we shy away from. Instead, it should be something we embrace and discuss more openly.
If we can share our personal experiences to help one another, we can save a lot of time. After all, learning from other people’s mistakes can prevent us from making the same errors ourselves. …
I’m not a rich asshole or someone who’s always had a lot of money.
See, I know what it’s like to have an empty bank account. Actually, I’ll rephrase that. I know what it’s like to have a negative bank account while being kept awake by the prospect of being unable to afford basic groceries.
I used to suck at managing money. Growing up on the poverty line, I wasn’t surrounded by any personal finance geniuses. The only thing I knew how to do was spend every cent of my paycheck. So that’s what I frequently did.
But now, everything…

Growing up, I thought the only way to become a gentleman was to get older. I believed that as long as you were legally old enough to buy a drink at the bar or rent a car, you could do pretty much anything. But here’s the thing: I was wrong.
By definition, a gentleman is someone who’s polite and behaves well towards other people. …
