How my wife and I buy everything we want

Money, Politics, and Religion. The things you don’t discuss at the dinner table, with in-laws, or at family reunions.

However, all 3 are wildly important within the context of marriage (or those dating wanting to be married, or long-term partners, wherever you are).

In this piece, I’m specifically focusing on the topic of money.

It would be difficult for the average…


And no, this isn’t a joke. I made $30,000+ doing this

If you’re like me, you’re always looking for a way to make a few extra bucks without having to do much work outside of your normal routine.

(Disclaimer: This article is for dentists who take ownership in order to better themselves, the practice, and their teams. If you’re a whiner and complainer, then this isn’t for you!)

My first two years of writing I racked up ~20 articles.

The problem was that I only wrote when I had concrete ideas. I learned this was a poor method through some successful writers whose habit was to just sit and write.

You know that already, everyone talks about that every day.

Even though June (if you live in Virginia) seems like a long ways a way, to…


Are you ready to emerge victorious?

It’s Re-Opening Day.

Original opening day was special.

Reflecting in Isolation

After working your way through everything Netflix, Hulu, and Disney+ have to offer, it’s only Week-2 of Quarantine Time. It appears the end is not yet near.
