“How do I make money online?”

Many of my friends asked me that question because of my last post about 5 wrong ways to make money online this 2021.

In fact, many people even say that making money online is a lie. They think everything is already created, and there is no way to compete with the famous people that are actually making money.

The reality is that you don’t have to reinvent the wheel, create the next social network, or make a product that will solve a problem that everybody has to make good money working online.

All you…

No matter how much money you earn

There are no secrets to getting rich overnight, but there are some proven systems that can help you get rich.

The reality is that everyone has the same opportunity to be rich. Some may face greater obstacles than others. But the opportunity is there for everyone to seize.

Have you ever wondered why some people are rich, and others are not? Mostly it’s because of their lifestyle and mindset.

Many people spend their entire lives lamenting the situation in which they were born, while others strive every day to change it, and that differentiates us.

Also, they still believe in…

Improving your life doesn’t have to be about making one big gesture.

It’s normal to feel like you could be doing more when it comes to personal development. But being a better version of yourself doesn’t necessarily involve making significant changes and being overly hard on yourself.

In fact, it’s quite the opposite.

It’s more about something you can constantly work on, and it typically comes down to the small things you do every day.

Here are eight simple ways to improve your life for free, and they can be done in your daily routine without affecting your current habits.

Observe the glasses you use to see the world

We don’t often see the world just like it is; sometimes, we…

Your 20s aren’t the only years you can start earning money.

Everywhere we see how the key to being a millionaire is “to start saving in your 20s thanks to the magic of compound interest.” However, I believe it is possible to accumulate a good amount of money no matter what stage you are in.

That’s because being wealthy is not only one path. And saving when you’re older is easier than in early ages.

Many people have other priorities in their 20s than just accumulating money, such as paying off debt, buying a car, a house, travel, or even having children. Expenses that you may not have over the years.

You make the world more complicated than it really is.

Many people think they know what it takes to be successful.

As we get older, we see the same learning patterns at school: You need good grades to succeed, you need a degree to get a job, you need to start saving early so you don’t starve when you are old.

The problem with these tips is that they are very vague and general. Currently, many of them are very far from the current reality. While some of that advice could make you feel good in a way, others can lead you in the wrong direction.

Here is a list…

The other side of being an entrepreneur that nobody talks about.

If there’s one piece of career advice that drives me crazy, it’s “follow your passion.

Like just by following your passion, you will magically get your dream job, have more money, and leave that horrible job you currently have to live a free life.

But it is not as easy as it sounds.

Passion is not enough. No matter how much those financial gurus tell you otherwise. I’m passionate about a lot of things, like play video games or go to the gym. …

The importance of a messy day to your brain.

“Productivity” is a word we hear a lot. Our bosses tell us that we must be “productive” to receive a payment, in schools our teachers say that we must be “productive” to learn, even in our house we must feel “productive” to have everything in order.

But how are we productive?

Like many other people, I’ve tried most of the advice we commonly see on the internet to be productive, to Pomodoro Timer, to-do list, time blockers, turn off my phone, and accountability partner. However, there came a moment when I realized that doing all those strategies was only moving…

You should consider these points before deciding to change your job.

Last year I received a call from the company of my dreams. They had an open position and said that I could be a good candidate for them.

I had high expectations because they are one the biggest bank in my country and had a good reputation on reviews companies as “the best place to work.

Working there felt like securing your life. That you will have the opportunity to grow professionally, develop your skills, and belong to a successful company that gives you prestige just by mentioning its name.

However, the experience I got was terrible, and the only…

Let’s stop romanticizing the entrepreneur dream.

Business advice is easy to find. You only need to open your explore page, and you will find thousands of people who can teach you how to do an overnight business.

There are many gurus that tell us everywhere that they are making thousands of dollars monthly, that making a side hustle is the key to happiness, and that it is a good idea to just quit your job and follow your passion.

They make us think that “If you are not hustling, you are losing.”

However, this is not completely true. Just as there are people who were born…

You can establish yourself as an expert even if you are just getting started.

Being an expert at something really pays off.

When you are an expert, people trust you and believe all the opinions you give because you are the best. They also want to work with you and are motivated to learn from you. Experts are more likely to be contacted to work with you. And above all, when you are an expert, you get better pay.

Some research shows that in highly complex jobs like sales and professional roles, the top 10% produce 80% more than the average and 700% more than the bottom 10%.

But as I’m sure you know…
