What We Can Learn from the Nation Branding Boom

It seems that the old method of nation branding is out. No longer is it “trample through your neighbor, enslave them, and then force them to wave your flag.” That just doesn’t seem to work anymore. No, nations now have to play by the rules just like everyone else. And in the age of the…


How to set smart goals ~ Get Rich Slowly

During my two-week break, I’ve been working to migrate some of my old Money Boss articles to Get Rich Slowly. I thought this long piece on how to set good goals might be useful to those of you about to set goals and resolutions for 2018, so I’m publishing it today. Enjoy! We’ve reached one…


Meet the Entrepreneurs of Generation Z

Millenials have grown up and they’re now the old fogies of the entrepreneurial world. They’re now completely entrenched in corporate culture. They’ve made their waves and it’s now time to step aside and look to the next generation. What is the next generation? The common name we call them is Generation Z. But let’s replace…


Why Everyone’s Freaking out About Walmart’s E-Commerce

Watching the world of commerce flip upside down and inside out has been like waking up from a particularly realistic dream. You don’t know where the dream ends and real life begins. But before I go all Matrix on you (too late), you should know that the e-commerce world is totally up in arms about…


Getting into the crypto currency

Getting into the crypto currency Jeremy Schoemaker December 20, 2017 So I came to cryptocurrencies pretty ignorant. Made an account on coinbase and bought the limit of my bank deposit ($7500) worth of Bitcoin. I bought the next week the same. It was around $10,000 per bitcoin. Since then it got up to 20k and…


A Christmas Rhapsody

Just a quick note that Get Rich Slowly is on Christmas break. For the next two weeks, I’ll be posting infrequently — if at all. I’ll update the “spare change” links now and then, but I don’t plan to publish new full-length articles until early January. Kim and I have decided that next week is…


How much does your commute cost? ~ Get Rich Slowly

While I’m not a rabid anti-car crusader, there’s no doubt I think the U.S. is too car-centric. I understand the historical reasons behind our vehicle dependence — we’re a young nation with sprawling cities spread far apart — but I also believe that if you, as an individual, make an effort to live in a…


The Secret Behind Lucrative Side Hustles

One of the jokes you hear about in the solo entrepreneur world is that people will gladly work 60 hours to keep from working 40. But it’s so true. I personally have a friend who recently caught the side-hustle bug. He’s done his research and settled on two niches, running blogs and books. You would…


What rich people do differently ~ Get Rich Slowly

I’m fascinated by the differences between rich people and poor people. Are the differences mostly a matter of class and economic mobility? Are people born to wealth and poverty and destined to remain there? Or are there observable differences in attitude and action that tend to lead people to specific levels of affluence? From my…


Can you use positive reinforcement to foster smart money habits?

Most of the time, I can sit down and write a blog post in an hour or two. Or three. I get an idea, then pick up my laptop, find a quiet spot, and hack out my thoughts. Some articles, however, take months (or years!) to create. This is one of them. You see, near…
