Know What Motivates You

I took the week off from my day job to relax, reflect, and finish my upcoming book. During this week I’ve been thinking a lot about what really motivates me and what my values are. This is something people don’t really think about, or they aren’t honest with themselves.

People Who Inspire Me: Brett Favre

Brett Favre was known as the ‘Iron Man’ of football, way before the Marvel movie hype started. He had the NFL record for most pass yards and still holds the record for most starts with 298 games.

Is College a Scam?

Colleges have been important institutions for hundreds of years, since the first universities built by the ancient Greeks.

Finding Inspiration in Anime

We all have different sources that we draw inspiration from. Some people look at athletes, movie stars, and entrepreneurs.

How to Invest for Retirement: Roth IRA and 401k

People Who Inspire Me: Daymond John

When I was 24, I spent months brainstorming business ideas. I knew that I wanted to start a business but wasn’t sure how a young guy with little money and experience could start one. I had already learned all about Richard Branson and how he defied the odds to become a rich, successful entrepreneur, but there was something else missing from the puzzle. Weeks later I was browsing the bookstore and picked up a book that looked interesting: Rise and Grind by Daymond John.
