Writing — like any goal worth attaining — is hard.

Through time, It will wear you out.

But just like what Jordan Peterson always says,

Each and every one of us should pursue what’s meaningful, not expedient.

So, choose your hard.

Anyone reading this story who’s into writing themselves knows exactly what I’m about to say.

Writing is hard because of:

  • Rejection from publishers
  • Criticism
  • Resistance and writer’s block
  • Or just low-level outcomes

Writing isn’t a game everybody wants to play.

And of course, with the hard comes purposeful achievements.

Over the past 8 months, I’ve written constantly about topics…


And its investors are afraid to admit it.

I still remember the first time I saw a Clubhouse room about 3 months ago. My friend Macbrennan uses it to advertise his startup, and at the time, he was giving away invites for the then invite-only app. So, I asked him to pass along one invite for me.

“You sign up and you can join any room at your preference, then you’ll hear people talking about pretty much anything.”

Clubhouse has come a long way since its initial launch in April of 2020, and it is…

“Everybody should learn to program a computer because it teaches you how to think” 1995 was a time when computers already played an important role in our society but weren’t as omnipresent in our lives as they are today. — Steve Jobs

You want to learn how to code, but what should you make?

Learning to code can be difficult and confusing, especially when you don’t even know where to start.

When I was learning web development, I didn’t know what I should start outbuilding. It seemed like everyone had an opinion — “don’t start with a to-do list app…


Successful entrepreneurs don’t underestimate the psychology of sales.

Why do people buy a product?

Whatever you’re selling, be that an app, a physical product, yourself, or your services, people buy for the same reasons.

Do they buy it because they need it or because they want it?

Sales psychology is a type of process that involves considering the psyche of your target market to sell your products and services.

Instead of convincing customers, they need your product or service, you find a way to market to their current needs and wants.

Selling is not complicated, as a matter of fact, it’s simple. …


Here’s to making your online interactions timeless and meaningful.

When I tell people that I’m a designer or entrepreneur across the internet, people think I’m some sort of a workaholic. As a matter of fact, I got once called a “Madman” by a former colleague of mine.

But in reality, I’m constantly fighting my self-doubt, just like anyone else in the online world. What appears on my social media isn’t exactly a depiction of real life. However, appearing confident and powerful is a must, yet, there’s always a little self-doubt that will make me think twice about my abilities.

80% of all people doubt themselves and their abilities.

What does the future look like?

Patrick and John Collison are the billionaire brothers and co-founders of Stripe and unlike most archetypical Silicon Valley stories, their story started in Ireland, in a small town called, Dromineer.

Their journey in tech didn’t start at Stripe, it started with Auctomatic, to which they had sold for $5 million back in 2008.

At the time, Patrick was 19 and John was 17.
