Not too long ago I was homeless. This may be an over-exaggeration as it was only for a short period of time, but nevertheless, I was. My whole life packed in the back of a company car and a wallet crying out for love. For a brief period of time, everything I had worked hard to achieve had been taken away in a flash.
I had been kicked out of my home and was forced into one of life’s most uncomfortable situations. A situation that nobody ever wants to be in.
A certain feeling creeps in and your chest becomes tight. You struggle to breathe and for a moment your ability to focus and call someone for help becomes a distant thought. …
I’m going to cut right to the point. Working, living and travelling abroad is so much easier than people realise. No published article, secret method or expensive Zoom seminar is going to prove it otherwise.
In all honesty, two elements that everybody should have, are all you need.
Also, there is a couple of household items required, but they’re pretty self-explanatory; decent computer, internet connection, common sense…
It’s true. A one-syllable word can ultimately change your life. …
Not long ago, I moved into a beautiful apartment with a friend. The deposit and first few weeks of rent set me back quite heavily and I was forced into quite a difficult financial time.
It was during this time where I discovered simple, yet effective ways to live a better life with the little income I was earning.
This is that list.
In this day and age, the internet is everywhere. So much so that it can be overwhelming. I mean, who is going to use an infinite amount of data during a month?
The answer: no one.
With phone plans and home broadband deals going so cheaply these days, why not merge them into one single bill. You could save up to $100 dollars a month, just by working out how much data you actually need, compared to how much you use. …
“Why so happy?” a friend remarked as I was in the kitchen getting some plates.
For a long time, I could wipe the smile off my face. It was as if someone had run up and permanently added botox to my cheeks, forcing them to stay in an upright position.
I had just been on an incredible date with an incredible person and my day was only to get better when friends came over to celebrate new beginnings.
“Let’s have some wine!” one friend shouted.
I went to the kitchen and found a bottle of shiraz, hiding in the back of the cupboard. At the time I thought it strange that it was well hidden but was too over joyous to think any more on the matter. …
It may be a little biased as I am a teacher, but having seen, watched, and absorbed various pieces of content across the internet, I have come across a single flaw.
It is all well and good creating content for others to view, but what good is it if it isn’t practical? I understand that often at times we need to be entertained to distract ourselves from our crazy lives (particularly this year). Still, I shouldn’t the content you’re watching have at least some element of education?
What I am trying to elicit in as simple terms as possible is; what educational factor are you including when creating a YouTube video that’s viewed by millions? Maybe you have something embedded deep within the context, but it may also be sending the wrong message. …
I recently moved into a million-dollar apartment, and no it is not the one as shown above. That just looked really beautiful and reminds me of what peace and quiet are.
For over a year, I would look up at a row of houses on the commute home and think to myself; “I’ll never live in a place like that”
or “those houses must cost an absolute fortune”
Most of the time I would even find myself saying aloud: “Not on my salary”
Truth be told, now I am living here and looking out at the sky, I wonder how on earth I got here. And the fact of the matter is, that no job or investment is going to get you where you want to go. …
I know what you are thinking.
Would it not depend on how much money you make rather than the number of bank accounts that would, in turn, increase your balance? Or perhaps this article will be about the different types of accounts that one can have and how to utilise the effectiveness of specific interest rates and whatnot.
Well, I’m sorry to say that that is not the case. Instead, what I am proposing to you today is a new theory that could revolutionise the way that we do our banking.
Again, I’m probably being a little overdramatic, but I do believe that this banking method works as having used this for past few years, I have managed to see a significant increase in my balance. …
I’m an advocate of metaphors. I love them so much that on a daily basis I will throw in at least six or seven to spice up conversations.
But when does a metaphor become reality?
Well, it’s a good question and one that I found myself pondering one night after trying to explain how a pencil can represent a relationship.
It took me a while, but I feel that my class of twenty students finally realised in the end what it was I was trying to convey. …
Don’t be discouraged. If it were easy, everyone would be conversing in a wide range of languages on a daily basis.
I’ve taught many students over the years and most of them ask; how can I learn English fast?
It has taken some time and careful consideration, however as each year rolled over, I feel that I have created an essential basis for anyone who wishes to learn a language quickly.
There is no get it quick scheme or magic button to be pressed, this journey is going to take hard work, dedication and lots of coffee. …
What if I told you that your future and the skills you need to uphold that future, could cost as little as ten dollars?
No more spending thousands on university fees or forking out a small fortune to attend an online webinar. Your next big breakthrough could stem from as little as a ten-dollar bill.
But why am I talking about spending money when there is already so much content out in the world for free?
It’s a good point and one that I will try and explain in the passage below.
If you learn something for free without any investment, often at times you may feel reluctant to keep pursuing. I mean it’s free so what’s the point of continuing. This is a bad mindset to have, however, if we spend a small amount of money, say ten dollars, then we are investing finance in return for something practical like knowledge or a new skill. …
