    Cryptocurrency Update

    Reading Time: 3 Minutes “Hahahahaha…” Turns around. Oh hello! Glad to see you here, welcome welcome. Gestures to a warm, comfortable seat. Please, sit down. That’s better right – can I get you anything? Drink? Water? No? Fair enough. Forgive me, because you caught me in the middle of reading through some of my older posts. Like this one here, “4 Things I Learnt Investing in Cryptocurrency” (read here). Ah the innocence of youth… What’s that? I only wrote it less than a year ago? But it feels wayyyyy longer than that!

Man, I knew it was wrong to grab those Fillet-O-Fish burgers for a post-dinner snack… never again. Shakes head. Brbrbrbrbrrrrr. But c’mon, who DOESN’T like fast food, SO. DAMN. DELICIOUS. Hmmm… although it does remind me of what I was reading earlier today, what was it again? Hm. Oh yeah! It was on Tom Corley’s Rich Habits. Who’s Tom Corley? Yeah exactly.

    Reading Time: 2 Minutes Hi everyone! Welcome back to another post of your favourite personal finance blogger. Yes! It’s that time again… time for another episode offfff, “What I’m Viewing”. A short selection of articles, videos and links I’ve found useful in the last couple weeks or so. Without further ado, here they are: This Is What It Takes to Be in the 1% Around the World Ever wondered what it takes to be a one-percenter? Well, Bloomberg breaks this down to put some perspective. If you’re in India, a (relatively achievable) USD 81,000 p.a. will get you there. Compare this to a whopping USD 891,000 if you live in…
