Ethereum’s Upgrade Is Almost Here: What You Need to Know

Something big is coming in the crypto world. It’s an event I’ve been writing about for well over a year … and it’s almost here! In a little over a month, the Ethereum (ETH) network is upgrading from proof-of-work to proof-of-stake. (If you don’t know what that means, don’t worry! I cover it all in today’s video.) This is a huge moment for both ETH and the crypto world in general — because it means that bitcoin might finally be toppled from its position as king of the cryptos. With that said, here are three major points I discuss in[…]

Tesla’s Souring Sentiment, Boeing Bounces Back & Check Point Under Attack

Tesla’s Symphony Of Destruction? Great Ones, you take a mortal man … and put him in control. Watch him become an EV god. Watch his Twitter account troll. And troll. And troooooll! Yes, folks, Tesla (Nasdaq: TSLA) CEO Elon Musk is just like the Pied Piper leading rats through the streets. But investors aren’t going to dance like marionettes for much longer… (That’s Megadeth’s “Symphony of Destruction,” in case y’all were wondering.) The shine is wearing off Musk’s antics, and sooner or later, his behavior will seriously impact TSLA stock. If y’all remember, I said as much about a week[…]

7 Money Tips From Mark Cuban

Caught these tips off Twitter and thought it would be fun to see how many of these we can check off 😉 I’ll go first… From The Man himself, Mark Cuban: #1. Live like a student Nope! I used to live like a student, but that was more out of necessity than desire lol…  I will say though that this mentality IS a good one to try and mimic though, at least in spirit, as lifestyle inflation is real and if you keep spending all the new money you earn you might as well still be a broke college student![…]

Inflation Nation, Stairway to Apple & Intel, I’m Gonna Leave You

Friday Four Play: The “Over The Hills And Far Away” Edition Hey, Great Ones, you got the love I need. Maybe, more than enough. Oh, Wall Street, Wall Street … Wall Street, walk a mile with me. Oh, inflation’s got so much … so much … so much… Just what are you on about, Mr. Great Stuff? Well, since the Fed’s favorite inflation indicator is basically “over the hills and far away,” I figured some Zeppelin was in order. That’s right, the Personal Consumption Expenditures Price Index (PCE) surged 6.8% in June, marking its biggest annual jump since January 1982.[…]

Life and Success Is All About This…

Need more time in your day? Try waking up one minute earlier each day. By the end of the month, you’ll have 30 extra minutes to start your morning. That’s what I did more than 20 years ago. I used to get up at 6:45 a.m. I now get up at 5:45 a.m. every day. And I have one extra hour each day to do something creative. Success works the same way — including with investing. I share how in my three-minute video this week. Click on my handsome face below to watch it. And let me know what you[…]

Great New Book on The Scene (Giving Away 2 Copies!)

There’s a fantastic new book dropping on the scene next week and I have two copies to give away to you today! It comes from podcaster, and (early) retired hospice doctor, Dr. Jordan Grumet: “Taking Stock: A Hospice Doctor’s Advice on Financial Independence, Building Wealth, and Living a Regret-Free Life” I haven’t cracked it open yet but it’s already making some waves in our community, and from what I hear will be one of the next Big Ones people pass around similar to JL Collins’ The Simple Path to Wealth and Morgan Housel’s Psychology of Money. I had the pleasure of[…]

What about all the FUN debt gave you?

This is going to sound weird or stupid, but isn’t *going into* debt so much fun???! Like, don’t we enjoy spending money on stuff we love – even if it’s only in the moment? As finance nerds we tend to focus on how terrible debt is and how much we hate it etc etc, but I think we forget just exciting it can be to buy stuff too 🙂 I mean, why else would people willingly go into debt if they weren’t getting something awesome in return? Do you know anyone who goes out of their way to buy stuff[…]

Wall Street spends billions of dollars in advertising on why you need them.  But they’re not there to help. They’re there to part you from your money.  And that gets me sick to my stomach.

Got a great guest post for y’all today by a long-time reader of the blog, Adam, who I once had lunch with back in 2017 as his money and mind was morphing… He had written me the first part of this story years ago, and then it sat in my inbox until we re-united last month with the news of Budgets coming back 😉 I asked him how things have changed since, and wow did I get an answer!
