A company that makes nothing but money is a poor kind of business.
When I was not busy cutting wood, I worked on combustion engines, studying their character and the way they worked. I read everything I could find on the subject, but it’s from my own practice that I got the best education.
In 2019, I made one of the best decisions ever in learning how to cut my own hair. I bought some clippers, combs, disinfectant, and some oil and never looked back. This skill especially came in handy during 2020’s surprise pandemic which shut barbershops down. More than just the cool feeling of learning how to do something (especially to meet your own needs), I had the feeling of power that I never had when I relied on a barbershop solely to keep me looking ‘acceptable’ in the public’s eye. The constant frustration of depending on barber’s, who have dynamic lives…
Millions of people rely on the USPS to ensure they receive their mail and packages each day. Even Amazon, currently the biggest company in the world, relies on the USPS for last-mile delivery of a good portion of their packages. However, delivering this mail is not as easy as it may look to some and you would be shocked to find archaic practices still being implemented which are as old as some of the LLV’s (Long Life Vehicles) that some carriers use which were made in the 80’s. After experiencing what its like to be a mail carrier, here are…
When I first started to notice the billion dollar ‘unicorn’ startups being founded by 20-something years old from their garages, it sent my mind into idea overdrive. It seemed like almost every week I had come across a new article of financial success achieved by a small group of young college or freshly post-college age students changing something in the world. Young, broke, and ambitious, I decided to try my hand at creating my own startup. It was an exciting feeling of striking out for myself to create something new, a mobile app I envisioned called ‘ No Filter Reviews’…
“The Universe is under no obligation to make sense to you.”
“Even with all our technology and the inventions that make modern life so much easier than it once was, it takes just one big natural disaster to wipe all that away and remind us that, here on Earth, we’re still at the mercy of nature.”
“Recognize that the very molecules that make up your body, the atoms that construct the molecules, are traceable to the crucibles that were once the centers of high mass stars that exploded their chemically rich guts into the galaxy, enriching pristine gas clouds with…
Newark New Jersey, my hometown, was originally founded in 1666 as a Puritan settlement and would eventually evolve into the nation’s third-oldest major city and played a big part in American manufacturing during the Industrial Revolution. Newark is also the city where Thomas Edison established his first factory, inventor Seth Boyden created his first Iron producing factory, and Malcolm Mclean would revolutionize the shipping container for transporting freight which has impacted the entire world. With a rich history of innovation from a variety of entrepreneurs, its no surprise that Newark would be the perfect microcosm of Silicon Valley innovation on…
“The (Black Man) must be up and doing if he will break down the prejudice of the rest of the world. Prayer alone is not going to improve our condition, nor the policy of watchful waiting. We must strike out for ourselves in the course of material achievement; by our own effort and energy present to the world those forces by which the progress of man is judged.”
- Marcus Garvey

What started out as a random Google search to see if any notable people shared the same birthday, July 18, as me lead to my discovery of serial entrepreneur Richard Branson. His story of overcoming dyslexia to go on to build multiple successful businesses truly inspired me. Eager to learn more about how Richard Branson created so many successful business, I decided to purchase his book “Screw Business As Usual” during a trip to Barnes and Nobles hoping to get tips on how to create a successful business.
While the book gave me a understanding on Richard Branson’s unorthodox way…
Change is the only constant in the universe. Everything from the most Nano particle on earth to the hypergiant stars in the galaxy are all constantly in flux. Nothing in this world stays fixed for long without deteriorating. The biggest change currently being experienced is the new use of face mask due to Covid-19, which took the world by storm almost a year ago. Many times we get used to how things are and struggle to adapt to life’s new circumstances and therefore fight an uphill battle against the inevitable. …
