Hey, it’s Nabil. You’ve probably just read one of my articles, got curious about me and my content, so you clicked on my profile and here you are: looking for clues to help you decide if I’m relevant to follow. Well then, shall we?
I’m 28 years old. I’ve spent most of my time on earth pleasing everyone around me and ended-up not knowing where the heck I’m headed. Eventually, I got tired and stopped to get my sh*t together. A few things have been helping me: exercising, reading, and writing.
As I’m writing these lines, I’ve taken a break…
As soon as you see “How Jeff Bezos makes billion-dollar decisions, and Elon Musk solves impossible problems,” you jump in to replicate the pattern. You love $uccess stories so much that you forget there’s another way to learn from others.
Business failures help you anticipate mistakes and uncover hidden risks, all while enjoying some crispy drama. Unfortunately though, most entrepreneurs aren’t open about their missteps — they rightfully fear public humiliation and online trolls.
Greg Isenberg, however, doesn’t care.
Isenberg is a 30-something entrepreneur who dabbles in a bunch of different jobs. He’s a growth advisor for TikTok, marketer…
“Environment is the invisible hand that shapes human behavior.”
The said environment isn’t just your workspace. It’s the people you hang out with, the information you consume, and the food you eat.
Your ability to think in one language and write in another makes your writing special. So special that there’s a word for it: Exophony.
Exophonic writers stand out for many reasons. Your mixed background allows you to explore diverse sources of information and bring unique perspectives to the table. More importantly, your tendency to venture outside your comfort zone helps you learn fast and improve with every article your write.
But, of course, there are flip sides. Heavy ones.
Grammar makes you sweat. Your clunky sentences give you nausea, and your memory seems to break every time you need it…
If you’re not sure what NFTs are or who Banksy is, I got you. Below you’ll find all the information you need to fully appreciate this story.
If, however, Banksy and NFTs are nothing new to you, click here to skip the introductory section.
Ready? Here we go.
Non-Fungible Tokens are digital objects that resemble Pokemon and Baseball cards. But instead of Pokemon and athlete images, NFT “cards” contain GIFs, videos, songs, and even tweets.
Each NFT is unique thanks to an attached serial number stored in a network of computers. The underlying technology is called blockchain and is the…
My phone buzzed with the notification I’ve been expecting. The money has arrived in my digital wallet, so I rushed to my desk. One hour and four sheets of paper later, I had it all sorted out.
Within less than a year, I’d be making $4,000 per month. Financial freedom never felt so close. I shared the news with my new friend Santiago right away. It was the least I could do for the guy who introduced me to this crypto-trading company which made the whole thing possible.
Santiago immediately read my text. “I’m so happy for you, man!” He…
If reality were a book, your brain would be a sneaky, old-school editor. Sneaky because it modifies your perception without letting you know, and old-school because it relies on ancient survival instincts that didn’t keep up with our growth.
The result? You seldom get the whole picture of whatever happens around you, which translates into inaccurate judgments and hasty conclusions. Here, let’s see that in action through two short stories.
In summer 2020, I decided to invest a fraction of my Bitcoin wallet. After a Linkedin chat with a crypto-trader, I hopped on a startup-like platform and quickly made my…
As soon as the leaked email landed in her inbox, Irin Carmon knew she had a crispy story to write. Without hesitation, she grabbed her laptop and typed a question that would later shake several lives, including her own.
“Does American Apparel’s new nail polish contain hazardous material?”
At the time, American Apparel was a manufacturer, distributor, and retailer of fashion products. In 2010 the company released a nail polish line with fancy colors and eco-friendly ingredients.
Paradoxes are statements that run contrary to one’s logic and expectations. For instance, “The more you learn, the less you know” is a paradox. At first glance, the sentence seems unreasonable, but when you look beneath the surface, you quickly recognize that it’s true.
Every time you learn something new, you realize how little you knew before. Knowledge gaps appear in front of you, and you feel an urge to fill them. So, you travel further down the learning road, and with every step forward, you become smarter, make better decisions, and improve your finances. …
Mcfly and Carlito were shooting their next video when the phone rang.
“This is the French Government speaking on behalf of the President. He has a message for you guys,” said the man with a severe tone. “No, no. This is not a prank. Here, let me show you something.”
The phone buzzed again. Mcfly and Carlito clicked — here’s what they saw.
