Understanding Macroeconomic Relationships for the Purpose of Investing

If you want to be financially successful you have to have a basic understanding of different relationships that exist within the economic world and how different variables are correlated to somewhat predictable changes.  From a high level, once you have this understanding you can speculate on which  direction you anticipate certain variables to move, and act accordingly to bet on your prediction. For example, let’s talk about interest rates.  What are the consequences of rising interest rates?  For starters, you can earn more interest on your savings in the bank.  You’ll also have an increased interest expense if you choose … Read More

Stop The Hustle If You Are Married To a Specific Outcome

Often times my focus can get caught up on things like how am I going to pay off this debt faster?  How can I grow my business?  How can I advance my career? What investments can I capitalize on?  Where should I put my money?  If I buy this inventory how quickly can I flip it for a nice profit?  What products can I create and market? It’s not a bad thing to be ambitious and to be driven to take your life to the next level, but you cannot let your determination pull you out of balance.  Fulfillment is … Read More

Eliminating Anxiety When Giving Two Weeks’ Notice

Eliminating Anxiety When Giving Two Weeks' Notice

About a year ago I wrote a post about switching jobs and increasing my pay substantially by doing so. Well once again, I’m leaving my current job for another huge pay increase. This time around though, I had a really hard time dealing with the stress and anxiety involved with giving my two weeks’ notice. Since the experience is still fresh I wanted to share some of the things I noticed and how I was able to deal with it. This most definitely isn’t my first time giving notice but as far as I can remember it was the most … Read More

The Power of Perseverance

The Power Of Perseverance

Today I want to jump right into things and talk about perseverance, working hard and maintaining a positive outlook even while struggling through the plateaus in life.  As of lately this is something that I’ve been dealing with in many areas of my life, so I definitely feel it’s important to reflect on, to provide insight, and also to help me collect my own thoughts around the matter. My personality has always been to set high expectations and push myself to achieve the things I want, with little tolerance for anything less.  This is possibly one of my greatest gifts, … Read More

How the Federal Reserve and Banking System Operate

Federal Reserve Banking System

Below is another interesting video from YouTube along with a transcription I put together from one particular section of the video.  I hope you enjoy this unique perspective as much as I did.  It validates a lot of similar conclusions I’ve drawn myself along the way. And don’t let the video title deter you. Every human on this planet is enslaved whether they know it, or not. This is not the crude and primitive slavery of ancient times. It does not rely on whips and shackles to keep the oppressed in their place. These tools have been render obsolete by … Read More

Hello and Happy New Year!!! As I talked about in my previous post, I’ve been away on business leading right up to the holidays.  I was home in time to finish up my Christmas shopping last minute and enjoy the Holidays with my family and friends back home. Getting away from my home town and taking on a new city on my own was an awesome experience.  I’ve got a nice routine that keeps me productive and keeps me moving forward at home, but getting away from the familiar for awhile really helped me to grow in a lot of … Read More

Toronto from CN Tower at night

Welcome back. Finally after a few weeks I have a moment to sit down and write something here.  I apologize for the lack of content lately.  I’ve been in Toronto all week on business, where I’ll also be staying the next 3 work weeks.  My days have been filled with long hours at the office, followed by a nice dinner and after that, hitting the gym at the hotel, exploring the city, or site seeing. So aside from that, it’s nice to be home for the weekend and I really wanted to make an effort to generate some quality content … Read More
