The Boy Who Cried Blog (Based on a True Story About a NONtrepreneur Who Was Destined to Fail From the Very Start)

MEET DEVIN. He’s a typical, twenty-something young man, born and raised in the middle of America, who, like most of his high school classmates, didn’t go to college because he knew what he wanted to do with his life, but rather because he had absolutely no idea what he wanted to do with it. Like most of his classmates, Devin didn’t pursue a degree in anything super-specific, such as could have seen him become, say, a...

This Independence Day, It’s Time For You to Declare Your OWN Independence

It was 241 years ago today that the United States of America declared its independence from Great Britain and, surely, the day is to be celebrated across America with fireworks galore. But what about you? When was the last time you personally declared, either out loud or inside your own head, your independence with regards to anything? When, pray tell, was the last time you did anything that you might consider “fireworks...

In the Real World, You’re All Alone and It’s Everyone for Themselves, Whether You Like It or Not

Before I’d graduated from college at age 20, and even after I’d spent six or so years working my first couple of full-time jobs, I’d held the belief that other people, namely my friends, instructors, and supervisors had my best interests at heart. And why shouldn’t I have held that belief? After all, it’s what I’d been taught to believe and what I’d been told was the truth by most everyone since the...

How to Avoid the Most Costly Mistake Made by Most Musicians, Entertainers, Artists, and Authors (Must-Read for All Sole Proprietors and Entrepreneurs)

“Some people have all the luck”, as they say. They grow up with at least one if not two parents (or perhaps an uncle, aunt, grandparent, or other adult role model) that knows a thing or two about running what I would call “a legitimate business”, as in, one that not only turns a profit but also pays its taxes, as opposed to one that survives by doing “under the table”-type deals, typically involving...

Spending Less or Saving More Will NOT Make You Rich (The Truth About What It Takes to Build Real Wealth)

Growing up, I heard it all the time: “To get rich, you need to spend less than you earn.” It wasn’t until I was in my early 30’s that I realized that this idea was only half right, if not complete bullshit. While it is true–and, dare I say, a “no-brainer”–that one cannot become wealthy by perpetually spending every single dollar one earns or gets his or her hands on, the fact of the...

How I Broke Through the Glass Ceiling, Quit the Rat Race, and Put Myself on the Path to Financial Freedom (And How You Can, Too)

When I graduated from Mid-State Technical College in May 2003 with an Associate’s Degree in Marketing, I intended to apply my education to a career in music. As I’d already been recording in studios all around Wisconsin since age 17, had multiple live gigs under my belt, and become a “triple threat”, in terms of my ability to produce music, write lyrics, and perform well on stage, I figured there was no way I...

Inspirational and Motivational Quotes & Memes by Manifestation Machine (Updated Weekly)

You are here to go from glory to glory, not to stumble about aimlessly in the dark. Whatever you bless, you attract. Whatever you condemn, you repel. True freedom can only be achieved through suffering. Life is a mirror. The suffering that purifies is the most welcome of friends. Man is but a star bound to a body, until he is freed through his strife. Only by struggling and toiling may he find freedom and wisdom and life. Man is a...

The WWE’s Roman Reigns: Living Proof That Being Hated Means You’ve Made It

Earlier this year, WWE Superstar Roman Reigns accomplished something that no “baby face” (pro wrestling lingo for a so-called “good guy”) has accomplished when he was named Pro Wrestling Illustrated’s Most Hated Wrestler of 2016. Additionally, the man is mercilessly booed in a way no “baby face” has ever been booed before (including John Cena, his predecessor in many ways and a man who himself is serenaded with “Cena sucks”...

Will Your Nudes Be the Next to Leak? (Why Taking Sexual Selfies is a VERY Bad Idea)

Many news outlets are calling it “The Fappening 2.0”: A brand new trove of “private” photographs, apparently stolen from a multitude of celebrities’ electronic devices, has popped up online and now the likes of the WWE’s Paige, Maria Kanellis-Bennett, and Summer Rae, as well as Hollywood starlets Emma Watson and Amanda Seyfried (to name a few), are scrambling to save their dignity (or what’s left of it). And to think, all of this...
