    How To Win From The Lottery That is Blogging

    When you win the lottery and come up with a blogging idea everybody will mislead you and try to convince you that it just won’t work. Everybody but me.

After reading the list, perhaps you feel that I’ve missed out on adding your favourite exclusive resort or luxury hotel. Another…

    Unpopular Opinions on The Startup Industry Are Worth Listening To

    Unpopular opinions can sometimes cause panic. That’s why they are unpopular. Stanford Professor and Author, Bob Sutton, recently Tweeted this bombshell.”…the whole ecosystem is more similar to a Ponzi scheme than most at the top of the pyramid would like to admit.” Why did he say this? He was voicing his opinion of how he saw Silicon Valley and the startup industry. Product guy Tyler Hogge voiced his opinion on Twitter. Due to his research, he said: “Founders are actually risk-averse and not these risk-loving crazy people. They might define risk differently than others, but they are risk averse still.” He was also weighing in on the mythology behind startups. Non-profit executive Eileen…

  • 5 Digital Nomad Jobs

    First of all, when traveling through New York recently, and now being in Bangkok, one of the differences that stands out is the fact that NYC has loads of people living on the streets and in the subways. Also, Bangkok has very few beggars in comparison. Digital Nomads notice these kinds of things. Now I don’t know what the socio-economic factors are that determine this, but one thing I can say it that since Bangkok is so affordable across the board, it would take a lot for me to end up on the streets here. OK, alcohol is not cheap. But that’s about it. (Perhaps that contributes to fewer homeless?)…
