Dogecoin has been the talk of the town for a while. All thanks to the Dogefather — Elon Musk and the loyal Reddit community of the same name. Dogecoin has been encouraged by Snoop Dogg and Mark Cuban. As I write this piece, Dogecoin’s market capitalization is $64 billion. Dogecoin is ranked #5 most popular cryptocurrency.

Dogecoin is a meme-cryptocurrency created by software engineers Billy Markus and Jackson Palmer back in 2013, who later sidelined themselves from Dogecoin.

The first-ever book that I read was Rich Dad Poor Dad. It left me awestruck. Since then, I have read a lot of self-help books and books on money management. I find these books insightful. They offer actionable takeaways.

I started reading books a year ago sometime after the pandemic hit though I have had the habit of reading magazines, articles, and blogs all my life.

“Life doesn’t get easier or more forgiving; We get stronger and more resilient.” – Dr. Steve Maraboli

Life is all about struggles. It was never meant to be easy. We all struggle with something or the other. The ones who are able to deal with those struggles, triumph. Others end up failing miserably.

‘Me too’ are the two most comforting words out there. Once we find out, someone else has the same struggles as us, it makes us feel less piteous about our lives.

We all can read books, it’s just that we need to find the right genre. If you are interested in the genre, you’ll happily read a book even if you are not a big fan of reading books. Just because you are excited by the genre.

Procrastination is like a credit card: It’s a lot of fun until you get the bill. – Christopher Parker

Last week I got an assignment that was due yesterday. Before I got this assignment, I had decided that I’ll be completing my assignments the day I’m assigned one.

But I kept on saying to myself, “Relax, I’ll do it tomorrow, it isn’t due today. I still have a lot of time.” And this approach of mine didn’t let me complete it until today. I hate to admit that it got completed yesterday. …

But it plays an important role in establishing connections and you never know when a chance encounter with someone might lead to something significant in the future — a job opportunity or a relationship even.

This additional pressure can make introverts worry that they’ll suffer from a shortage of things to speak about or even what…

Behavioral researchers from the University of Cambridge revealed that kids develop planning and monetary habits by the age of seven. And the researchers encourage parents to start teaching their children about money at the age of three.

Kids as young as a three-year-old can understand concepts such as saving and spending. Children start understanding money probably the same time they start learning about numbers.
