    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! After reading this, I think it’s time to revisit and see what’s been happening in the crazy world…

    Side Hustle Idea – Working on Election Day

    Reading Time: 4 Minutes “Hi there, can I have your surname please?” I looked up at the next impatient voter looming over my desk. “Thanks, and have you voted before in this current election?” ~~~ Yes indeedy ladies and gentlemen, whilst the vast majority of our state was exercising their democratic right yesterday, yours truly was huffing and puffing behind the scenes. Thought I’d share with you all about this other “side hustle” which I’ve been doing for a while now (following on from being a soccer referee). Mind you this is probably the 3rd or 4th election which I’m involved in, and each time it’s been pretty much the…

    Superannuation 101

    Reading Time: 4 Minutes What’s up everyone! Hope we are all having a good week. Much better for yours truly, thanks for asking. BOO-YAH, I knew it’d be a better week when on Monday, a whole bunch of us got together for an impromptu but QUALITY dinner. Like $65 all-you-can-eat top of the range Japanese BBQ quality. DAY-AM. Let’s see, my friend Light Beam was there (the future Australian Treasurer), Bubu (the most handsome of our group) and Bugzy (another EN-TRE-PRE-NEUR, guy’s got 3 online businesses on the go, jayzuz). So of course, as expected the conversation was free-flowing and top notch (just like the meat yum, yum). Actually, I…

    R.I.P. Christchurch

    Reading Time: 2 Minutes Crazy, crazy, crazy. That’s the reaction we had when we first heard of the tragic incident unfolding in Christchurch, New Zealand. You see usually, on Friday afternoon, I’d be winding down – maybe even having a drink or two with my work colleagues as we pat ourselves on the back for another week down. But I remember that this Friday I was going full TILT. Been a pretty full-on couple of weeks actually and this week was no different. And then we heard the news… Or rather, I first received the actual 16 minute video the shooter live streamed BEFORE knowing what was going on. Initially…

    7 Ways to Handle a Hard Day

    Reading Time: 3 Minutes Oh WHAT a turd of a week it’s been guys. It’s weeks like this one when I just wanna come home after a HARD day’s work and, to quote a scholar “make sweet, tender love with my baby, and cry in her arms until we fall asleep”. Hahahaha, that scholar makes me laugh. But truth be told, it has been a trying week. Got a couple of urgent deadlines due as well as a FLOOD of maintenance requests for multiple properties, on TOP of not sleeping well AND feeling under the weather. Boohoo to TheFrugalSamurai – he’s doing it tough. But I am determined to not…
