On blogging: The Big Secret

Originally posted on Cristian Mihai:
Expectation. It builds you up, but also has the habit of tearing you apart. When it comes to blogging, it’s important to set realistic expectations. What are those, you ask? The realistic expectation is that no one is going to read your blog. Too harsh? Well, it’s also realistic to understand that the hardest battle you will fight is getting from 0 to 100 followers. The first hundred posts, the first hundred comments… That’s it. If you can muster the self-discipline and the patience to actually write those first hundred posts, you will have found an audience. It takes time, of course. That’s the big secret. Time. The more you invest in your blog, whether is actually writing your posts, or tweaking the way your blog looks like, taking the time to respond to comments or just engaging others in the community, all of these will factor in and determine the level of success your blog enjoys. Make no mistake. Time is the most valuable currency. And maybe it’s best…

10 Highly Recommended Conferences for Young Entrepreneurs in 2016

There are many events geared towards entrepreneurs that take place throughout each year. Here are 10 events worth looking into in 2016.

Travelling with Your Parents

I’ve been in Australia for almost two weeks now and overall it’s been amazing. I landed in Queensland to see the sights (and my grandparents) and fell in love with Brisbane. Then I went to Murwillumbah, with its beautiful misty mountains, and am heading down to Byron bay pretty soon. It’s been a lot of fun and made me seriously want to buy tie dye haram pants and backpack in youth hostels for at least a year asap, but there is one catch.

Leaving Goggles

I’m leaving my job. That’s right folks; after over a year and a half of working full time in my kooky little call center, I am leaving to travel and follow my dreams of being paid to write. It’s exciting, it’s terrifying and there is a very real chance I will end up extremely poor and never be able to move out of my parents flat. It’s even more of a daunting prospect because this is the only thing I have done since graduating. I literally left university on the last day of June two years ago and started working here on the first day of July. I didn’t take a break or a summer off, this is literally all I know of the adult world. I always planned to leave; in fact I had no idea I would be here this long. The plan was to save enough money to go traveling before settling down into ‘adult’ life. Initially I naively thought that would take about six months. I kept postponing leaving partly because I didn’t have enough money to …

The Confident Introvert 

Originally posted on Truly Hil:
An introvert to some, are people who are shy, keep to themselves, don’t enjoy the company of others, and boring… I consider myself to be one but I don’t think I’m any of those things. I like to stay quiet unless I have something useful to say. I don’t feel like I’m missing out on things if I can’t or don’t want to be there because I prefer my own company. I like to be in smaller groups compared to crowds.  I would be considered someone who likes to stay in the audience rather than be the entertainer. I do get shy and I do have a fear of judgement. So why do I blog? Why do I put myself out there, not just on here but moments in real life as well? I think it’s terrifying but it’s necessary. Every time I hit the publish button, I get a rush of fear and adrenaline. Why am I torturing the normally quiet, content me with exposing my thoughts to the…

What is G.U.M?

G.U.M is a company geared towards bringing the millennial community together through the common love of 80s & 90s nostalgia and our never-ending battle with adulthood. From quarter life crises to unconventional career paths (YouTubing, Blogging, etc.) we aim to foster an environment of support, positive interactions, and collaborations. In a nutshell… We are the twenty-somethings and (early) thirty-somethings that realized no one prepared us for adulthood. The ones who don’t want to spend the next 40+ years sitting through a 9 to 5 job that we hate.The ones that are settling down and starting families AND the ones who are watching and are far from ready. The ones that are eager to be self employed, have money that makes itself, travel the world, be fit, and in style.The ones that are last to remember a life that wasn’t tech heavy and first to grow up with ever-evolving technology. The ones who strive to figure out the secret to work-life-balance and “having our shit together.” We are the ones that hate the negative connotation older generations associate …
