It’s been a while since I’ve written specifically about personal finance on the blog, mostly because my focus shifted to earning more income. However, this week I’m going back to my roots thanks to Hurricane Irma. For those of you who may not know, I live in Miami and the last couple of weeks have been insane. Fortunately, Irma wasn’t as bad for Miami as it could have been, but it’s ...

    We have another review today! Again, this has been totally inspired by clients and readers who keep asking me about what tools I use to run my business online. Today, we’re tackling web hosting. More specifically, I’m doing a Bluehost review and explaining how to use Bluehost to set up your WordPress blog. Wait, can’t I just get a free WordPress blog? Before jumping into the Bluehost review, I must first address ...

Sometimes we have unexpected appointments, sometimes crazy things happen, sometimes lunch meetings take longer than necessary, sometimes we get stuck in traffic, and sometimes we go through natural disasters. My point is that we can’t plan every second of every day. Stuff happens. For example, I’ve had to prepare for hurricane Irma, and no one around here knows how bad it will be and what the aftermath will be. I thought I ...

I’m always raving on about how anyone can start a side business by freelancing. I still whole heartedly stand by this because I truly believe that if you put forth your best effort you will start succeeding, especially because our generation maneuvers the online world so well. I created a course around freelancing, wrote a book about it, and even coach other ambitious millennials to establish their businesses. However, just because ...

  I am an organizational freak. I once told a boss that if I could block out an entire day to organize the office I would be one hell of a happy employee. There are several others out there like me –  the mere thought of creating a spreadsheet makes them giddy inside and their entire to do list is comprised of color coded post-it notes. But, there are many others who are ...

When I first started this blog I did it with the purpose of calling myself out so I could start figuring out this whole “adulthood” thing. Since then I’ve prided myself on being transparent – like sharing my income, net worth, and publicly admitting that I’d been through a break-up. In 2014, I had to call myself out again. For the first time ever, I was in debt. It was debt accrued from ...

It’s time for the monthly net worth report! This is a new monthly installment where I’ve begun sharing net worth updates to hold myself accountable as I build wealth and show you how money works in real life. As a refresher, the reason I stopped doing income reports and instead started focusing on net worth is because your net worth is actually more important. If you’re making a lot of money ...

One day I got into a discussion with a millennial entrepreneur friend of mine about the value of time versus the value of money. She was going on about how money is so important in our lives and that’s why so many young professionals and entrepreneurs work themselves to the point of burnout. I mentioned that’s really unfortunate because in the grand scheme of things time is way more important than money. Therefore ...
