How to Quit a Job You Hate (And Why You Haven’t Done It Yet)

Do you hate your job? Do you find yourself daydreaming constantly about how great it would be to quit? Have you ever psyched yourself up to the point where you were about to do just that, only to have gotten “cold feet” at the last minute? And do you still believe, despite the fact that you haven’t done it yet, that someday—hopefully very soon—you’ll find the courage to quit? Well, I have to break it to you: You probably never will....

Is Happiness Really a Choice? (The Truth About Depression and What You Can Do About It)

“HAPPINESS IS A CHOICE” Never before, in the history of the Internet, have I seen four words set off such a firestorm of debate. On one side, we have those who agree with the above statement and believe that happiness is indeed a choice (or an “inside job”, if you will), and on the other, we have those who vehemently disagree and believe that it is a result of external circumstances (or, in other words, what happens to...

Dear Cory: Help! I Can’t Stop Taking My Anger Out On My Kids Every Day After Work!

Dear Cory, My Response: The first thing I want to tell you is that I do not believe you are a bad mother, and it is quite obvious (at least to me) that your children are not the root cause of your anger and that you love them very much. That being said, you have obviously been taking out your anger on your children and, like you, I would like to see that stop, so the first thing we need to do is figure out what it is—since we know...

Dear Cory: Ex is Upset That I Got Our 11 Year Old a Cell Phone Without His Consent!

Dear Cory, My Response: You do realize that there is such a thing as a phone plan that enables your daughter to call and receive calls from you and her father (plus 911) in the event of an emergency, but which otherwise restricts her ability to make/receive calls and texts or to access the Internet, correct? Additionally, unless you and your ex have sat your daughter down and had a frank discussion with her about the dangers of the...

Dear Cory: Sick Sister-in-Law Snapped Photos of My Dead Mother and I Am Pissed!

Dear Cory, My Response: My first thought is “Why would anyone want a picture of another person in a body bag, regardless of whether it’s a relative?” Your sister-in-law, from the sounds of it, seems to be mentally disturbed. What is/was she planning on doing with the photos? Posting them on Facebook and then tagging your mother in them? For the life of me, I cannot see any legitimate reason for why anyone, other than perhaps those in...

The Kurious Kase of Kylie Jenner (What the Second Richest Kardashian Can Teach Us About Attracting Both Fame and Fortune)

Kylie Jenner: Over 18 million Facebook page likes, nearly 20 million Twitter followers, 80 million+ Instagram followers and, if recent reports are to be believed, a personal net worth rivaled only by that of her big half-sister, Kim Kardashian, as far as Kardashian-Jenner clan members are concerned. How is it exactly that the youngest member of the Kardashian-Jenner clan became its second wealthiest, at only 19 years of age? I must...

Dear Cory: Afraid to Offend, Should I Stay with My Sister or Stay at a Hotel?

Dear Cory, My Response: Proper etiquette is to stop caring about such trivial matters. First of all, by your own admission, you haven’t even asked your sister about whether she even has room for you or not yet. As such, you are worrying about a problem that may or may not even exist. Do you realize how ridiculous this is? Rather than contacting your sister, the person who can actually tell you whether she would or would not be...

Dear Cory: My Beta Male Friend Can’t Get a Girlfriend!

Dear Cory, My Response: Your friend “Russ” sounds like a typical “beta male” which, according to UrbanDictionary.com, is an “unremarkable, careful man who avoids risks and confrontation” and who lacks the “physical presence, charisma, and confidence” of his more “alpha” (i.e.: masculine) counterparts, and I have to break it to you—his status as such is not something that can be “changed” overnight, or even over the course of a few...

Dear Cory: Former Friend Turned Frenemy is Ruining My Life!

Dear Cory, My Response: My first observation, based on what you’ve told me, is that you shouldn’t even be giving this psychopath “frenemy” of yours the honor of being deemed a “frenemy”, let alone a “friend” (or former/high school friend). The fact that you’re even using terms like “frenemy” or “friend” to describe this nutjob stalker is disturbing because those terms imply, at the very least, that the person you’re referring to has...

Words of Wisdom for the Would-Be Wealthy

Dictionary.com defines “wisdom” as “the quality of having experience, knowledge, and good judgment”, but I have a better definition: Knowing that you don’t know anything. And the sooner you (yes, you—the person reading this right now) realize that you, despite all of your schooling and apparent life experience, still don’t know anything, the better off you will be. It doesn’t matter how much schooling you have, how many books you’ve...

You Can’t Say You’ve Made It If You Haven’t Been Hated (The Truth About Haters and Trolls)

I remember my first haters like it was yesterday. It was the spring of 2012. I was 29 years old and had just dropped from my all-time high weight of 197 lbs. (at 5’10”) to 156 lbs. (nine lbs. below my weight as a high school junior) before settling in at a very healthy 162-165 lbs.—a feat I’d accomplished in public on my first YouTube channel, which I’d created really as nothing more than a video weight loss...

YouTube is Dead (How Google Killed It and the Dreams of YouTubers Worldwide)

I used to be big on YouTube. Okay, well, not BIG big, like PewdiePie big, but pretty big, especially considering that I was working within the confines of what is colloquially known as “the YouTube fitness community”. As Low Carb Cory, I grew my original YouTube channel to over 8,000 subscribers and was pulling in over $600 a month in Google AdSense revenue (from the ads that Google would show before and during my videos),...
