Hey guys! So not sure if you’ve been noticing around here or not, but I’ve been slowly adding up new pages to the site that I think can really help out over time (like my best products tab), as well as doing some much needed Spring cleaning too (like clearing out old stuff in my sidebars). I think it’s a little better on the eyes […]

(Guest Post by fellow bouncer, Ryan, as part of our Side Hustle Series) “Let’s go guys…drink ‘em up!” For you social butterflies out there, I’m sure these are words you’re used to hearing at the end of the night when you’ve tied a good one on.   For bouncers like me, these words generally mean the end of a 50-60 hour work week. This “side hustle” […]

Arrghhhh Matey! I’m a modern day pirate! ;)  Though now I don’t really know what exactly to DO with this piece of gold, other than just stash it away in my safe and hope I never have to use it one day, haha…  So I guess it begs the question, “Why even get it in the first place?” ;) Well, to that I answer three-fold: […]

(*Ahem* with my wife, not a mistress ;)) For the past 3 months, I’ve slowly transformed from a Mr. Workaholic to a Mr. Casanova – and all because I’ve been paying attention.  Not at our relationship, or how my work (or her studying habits for that matter) have gotten in the way of a little romancing or anything, but because I finally caved in and […]

Done is Better Than Perfect!

Thumbnail image for Done is Better Than Perfect!

(Article today by Evan  from My Journey to Millions) There seems to be a recent trend as so-called “cool companies” put in a founder’s statement every time they go public. For example, when Google went public in 2004, they included the statement, “Don’t be evil.” While good, it is not very inspiring. However, Facebook’s recent investor statement literally changed my outlook on starting my own […]

It’s growing up before our eyes, *tear*!  So crazy how time flies, eh?  I think it’s officially an old man ;)  Everyone knows that a blogging year is equal to like 20 “real” ones, haha… even more than doggy years! So it’s quite the achievement indeed for me.  Especially as someone with massive A.D.D. and real non-love of writing, haha….(well, I DO enjoy getting my […]

7 Awesome Subscription Clubs To Know About

March 19, 2012

If you’ve been following me on Twitter lately (and I know you have been, RIGHT??), you’ll know I’ve been pretty obsessed with a new subscription plan that mails you razors every month for as little as a buck.  Not only is their about video freakin’ hysterical, but they also capitalize on something almost every consumer appreciates:  convenience and value. (And by convenience, I mean being lazy) […]
