Don’t be Grateful for Your Job

Don’t be Grateful for Your Job

We often hear people say “Yeah my job may suck, but at least I have a job. I’m grateful for that.” My parents live in a relatively affluent town. During the 2008 crash a lot of white collar people lost their jobs. But it seemed that the only people that really lost their jobs were insurance salesmen. They were probably grateful for their cushy cubicle job, but they still ended up losing it. I am currently deciding if I want…

Today in the News

One of our regulars came into the health food store today. He is 95 but looks to be around 70. He still drives and walks on his own/ He even offered me a business opportunity but told me it was a surprise. He said the secret to health is to live in balance. Yin and Yang.

One Week and counting

One Week and counting

I do not really use this blog as much as I would like. I am kind of a wantrepneur in this regard. I dream of being a highly followed blogger with millions of adoring fans and thousands of page views a day while also making hundreds of dollars of ad revenue a day- enough to finance my entire life! I also dream of no woman ever rejecting me again and my ability to live forever. Hopefully one of these dreams…

The law of attraction is nonsense

The law of attraction is nonsense

Spend enough time around the self-help and self development community and you are sure to stumble across the ‘law of attraction’. This ‘law’ of attraction is nonsense. Completely preposterous. Utter shit and actually a detriment to your mental health. The ‘law’ is based on the assumption that our thoughts create our reality and if you think ‘negative’ thoughts then you will end up 100,000 in credit card debt, with cancer, overweight and a virgin at age 50. Wow all of…

5 Books for the Self-Reliant Millennial

5 Books for the Self-Reliant Millennial

“He truly lives dangerously who trusts his health to a doctor, his rights to a lawyer, his money to a banker or his soul to a preacher” -Anonymous The education system is basically useless for applicable real world knowledge. Most people my age know the 3 phases of the reconstruction of the south after the Civil War, yet cannot balance a checkbook. Luckily we now have access to the internet and books. Although it is too easy to drown yourself…

The Angst of The Early 20s

The Angst of The Early 20s

Something feels amiss. Sure the sun is shining, the weather is getting warmer and the days are lenghening. But as a wise man once wrote “Something is rotten in the state of Denmark”. As a species we are connected. We can pick up a 6 inch piece of glass and metal and suddenly communicate with someone across the globe. Yet depression and feeling of loneliness are prolific. If you are reading this than you are part of the richest group…

Petting the Lizard

Petting the Lizard

We can’t stop the voices in our heads. Don’t try. Trust me you will drive yourself insane. Instead we can befriend the lizard. The one that tells us we are no good, or losers, or smell funny. Seth Godin gives some great advice on how to tame the lizard: fail often, speak in public, write often, teach. All great things to make a habit of. I’m hoping the lizard follows the laws of physics and will obey inertia. Meaning it…

One Mans Trash is Another Man’s Profit

One Mans Trash is Another Man’s Profit

Garbage is very similar to food production in the modern world. For the most part, the life cycle of both trash and food is out of sight and out of mind. We can walk into a store and order one pound of ground beef with little thought of how this purchase came to be. The same is with garbage: one day the waste is sitting next to our curbs and the next day it is gone. Out of sight, out…

Find of the Week

Find of the Week

You can find some weird stuff at Goodwill. You can also find gold. By gold I don’t mean real gold, although I have heard of someone finding a real silver platter worth $1500. Last month I decided to get back into reselling. So far, since January 7th, between my two eBay accounts I have made $2510.36. Sure not all of this is profit (probably around 2/3 of it is) but that is a lot of money. I didn’t realize that…
