Online Marketing

When I first started the Instagram profile for my webshop, I had no social media marketing experience. I figured I could just Google how to do it, but without much luck.

The most used technique I found online was to follow people, and they will follow you back. While this works, it doesn’t create a loyal following. (Trust me, I tried). You want people to follow you because they enjoy your content, not because they simply follow back.

It’s better to have 10 loyal followers who are interested in what you have to say, and who interact with your posts…


Remember the presidential election four years ago? I was following along carefully. A woman was running for president and had an actual shot. I didn’t know much about Hillary Clinton, but I knew my step-mom owned books about her, so she must be awesome. I saw the polls and statistics. It seemed likely she was going to win. I mean, she was running against that racist, sexist, and homophobic old man, Donald Trump, she had to win.

I live in the Netherlands, so the election results are usually published by the time I wake up. First thing in the morning…


My Journey to Unlimited Freedom

Remember when you got your first paycheck? Didn’t you feel rich? You treated yourself after you got it. Your first paycheck! You worked hard for that; you should enjoy it. And before you knew, spending became a habit.

In a year, I want to convert a van into a camper. I want to spend up to €12.500 on this. I already have some savings, but I would like to keep those. After conversion, I’d like to live in it for a while. Yet another reason not to buy so much, I wouldn’t have space for it. …


Days are officially short again. You wake up, and it’s dark. You finish work, and it seems like it’s still dark. It’s like living in a constant state of nighttime.

Last weekend Daylight Saving Time ended, meaning we set our clock back one hour. When I woke up this morning, it wasn’t entirely dark outside. It won’t last for long, though; in a couple of weeks, it will feel like waking up in the middle of the night again.

In a recent article, I talked about generating multiple income streams. In this one, let’s talk about investing.

I started investing halfway through 2019. Investing had had my attention for a while, but I had no idea how to get started. While I scrolled through my Instagram feed, I saw an ad for an investing app called Peaks. I was hesitant but decided to download it and check it out.

Peaks

The app is easy to use and seems to be transparent about what’s invested in. At the time, I had never ever transferred money to an app. That seemed hella…


The Guide to Unlimited Freedom

In a couple of years — if we ever defeat COVID-19 — I want to travel. Like the basic Millennial […] I am. But how will I travel if I am at all times dependent on my job? I can’t just quit my job — that’s my only source of income. — How to Get Rich. Fast. Effortlessly.

So, I want to travel, which requires two things: money and freedom. I already wrote an article on easy ways to make money based on research and personal experience. …


The Guide to Ultimate Freedom

This article isn’t going to teach you how to get ‘Jeff Bezos’-rich, ‘winning the lottery’-fast, with ‘born to wealthy parents’-effort. It’s not going to teach you how to exploit people or master blockchain and cryptocurrency. Here you will read the basics to help you get started with building your bank account to a decent size, so you can have the freedom you want.

The Guide to Unlimited Freedom

Working forty hours a week, entirely concentrated, taking up the most significant part of your day. You work hard. All you keep are the leftovers — the few spare hours in the day you have left after you have finished working for your employer. You feel exhausted at times. Don’t get me wrong — You’re grateful to have a steady job. You get paid pretty okay, hours are flexible, and maybe you even love the company. But it just doesn’t seem to be enough to get rich.
