Five Signs You Should Quit Your Job and Live Your Dreams

“Just do it. Don’t let your dreams be dreams.” Whatever Shia Labeouf intended by his 30-minute performance art, these two phrases are the most oft memed and gifed. He screams “JUST DO IT!” and softly speaks the next phrase. It’s jarring and at the same time uplifting. Dreamers get a pedestal in our society only if they don’t keep their dreams to themselves. A dream ceases to be a dream once it becomes reality. Are you converting your dreams to reality or are you biding your time? Would you rather be Mr. Anderson in a cubicle or Neo following the white rabbit? And how do you know the difference between the two? Today I’m going to free your mind.

Prepare Now or Perish: 5 Fascinating Jobs of the Future

During the late 19th and early 20th centuries, the buggy industry went through a crisis. A new invention was about to take the jobs of hundreds of thousands of craftsmen and parts manufacturers. And the horse breeding industry was about to take a hit as well. It was the end of the Industrial Revolution. Machines continually replaced both skilled and unskilled laborers. The car was about to do it again. Protests happened, but the juggernaut could not be stopped. While it took 50 years to completely displace the horse and buggy, it happened. But the advent of the car created a whole slew of new jobs from mechanics to body repairmen to car electricians. We’re in the midst of a similar revolution. Automation is disassembling jobs. Even writers could find themselves out of a job someday because of AI and machine learning. But with such change comes new things. New […]

How to Make Money on YouTube in 5 Easy Steps

YouTube is a completely different place than it was only a few years ago. Back in the heyday of YouTube, even the smallest YouTuber could make a little bit of side cash. Now, it’s harder than ever to make money directly from YouTube. Why? Because YouTube decided to fight for justice. Well…sorta. For a while, YouTube has struggled with fake accounts, troll accounts, and upset advertisers. The only way to clean up the riff-raff was to raise the bar for entry. Previously, the only requirement for a channel to remain an active partner was 10k lifetime views. That’s it. Now, you must have a total watch time of 4k hours in 12 months and a minimum of 1k subscribers. In essence, to make money directly from YouTube ads, you have to work a little longer and gain a decent audience. But in the interim, there are a few things you can […]
