When The Hustle Stops…

When The Hustle Stops…

This last weekend was my Mother’s Birthday (Happy Birthday Mom!! Love you!!). That coupled with other family events I didn’t get anything done with the blog. There were no late night blog writings, no research, no social media hacking…nothing. I didn’t even get a post written for today (Monday, May 8th). And here’s the worst part, I don’t even feel rejuvenated from the weekend. If anything I have a weekend hangover. So what happens when the hustle stops?!? Begin Again:…

The Book You Should’ve Already Read…

The Book You Should’ve Already Read…

Alright, alright this might be a cop-out but the entrepreneur interview I had for this week fell through. Then I went to Chicago for an event put on by my company. I didn’t get around to blogging. Soooo enjoy this book review, trust me if you’re an entrepreneur this book is a life changer!! There are certain books that we’ve heard of over and over and over that we “should” read. We get them at the library, borrow them or even…

Yes, You Can Do It…

Yes, You Can Do It…

This isn’t going to be another “you only have yourself to blame for your lack of success” posts… “You’re the reason you aren’t successful…” “Stop blaming others for your problems…” “Why do you keep scrolling jealously through Instagram and not getting up and chasing your own dreams…??” “You’re lazy, entitled, and just want another participation trophy!” As Millennial’s we’ve heard it all. Heck, I’ve even said some of these things (like here). Sure, tough love can be a good thing….

5 REAL Ways to Become Wealthy

5 REAL Ways to Become Wealthy

A while back I made a list of as many ways as I could think of to ACTUALLY become wealthy. Before I begin, it’s important to know the definition of “being wealthy” that I am writing about. For me wealthy is having the financial ability to provide awesome experiences for my family and having the freedom and time to do so (I’d love to hear your definition of wealthy in the comments below, let me know!). So when I’m talking wealthy, there…

Billionaires Should Do What…??

Billionaires Should Do What…??

Usually when people say “I don’t normally do this, but…” what they’re reaaally saying is “maybe I don’t normally do this, but I need some justification as to why I’m about to do the thing that I normally don’t do, soooo, I’m saying I don’t normally do this…” So when I say I don’t normally comment on controversial Facebook posts what I’m really saying is that I need justification for the one time I did it. 😁 In all reality I think engaging…

Be Obsessed With Success: Logic

Be Obsessed With Success: Logic

Hey fam, so I’ve always been a fan of rap and hip hop. Do I have street cred? Nah. Would anyone look at me and be like, “yo that guy, he knows what he’s talkin’ about when it comes to rap!” No probably not. Can I spit bars? Do I have flow? No (not yet anyway). 🙂 So really I’m just a fan from a consumer standpoint. I’m especially infatuated with rappers who flow and have maaaad rhymes…you know what…

Be Obsessed with Success: Kevin Hart

Little known fact about me…I’m 5’5” (like I’ve always said, Imma keep it real with you guys)…that’s on a good day. So, yeah, I’m on the shorter side you could say 🙂 and yes I’ve heard just about every short joke in the book. That’s why whenever I hear of another short person killin’ it I gotta shout them out (Bruno Mars I’m with you brotha)!! The great thing about Kevin Hart, not only is he short, the dude is…

Be Obsessed with Success: Will Smith

Be Obsessed with Success: Will Smith

One of the more popular posts on this site is “Why You Aren’t A Millionaire.” I wrote the article to explain the mindset of people who haven’t and probably won’t become wealthy. I’ll be honest, man…I was super annoyed with people because they would come up to me and say things like “Yo Mac, make sure you let me know when you get there big guy.” Even now while writing this, I still have people come up to me (like a friggin’…

Why You Aren’t a Millionaire

Why You Aren’t a Millionaire

I started this blog a while back writing mostly about personal finance, while I still enjoy writing about it from time to time I’ve become fascinated with entrepreneurship. It’s so interesting to learn how people become successful doing there own thing, naturally I want the same for myself so I write about it. Anyway, when I first started writing about “gettin’ dat money” people would look at the blog name “I Just Want To Be Wealthy” and literally laugh, like….
