Personal Finances – Phase 1: Self Reliance

Last week, my wife and I started a 12 part seminar on personal finances. This program is for those of us who want to increase independence, become unified as a family in temporal matters, and improve personal responsibility. During the next several weeks, I plan to regurgitate what I have learned, incorporating with my thoughts. In doing so, I hope to reinforce what I have learned and be of some benefit to you.

Fostering the Entrepreneurial Spirit in Your Child

So it’s another weekend and your kid is clinging to your pants leg, begging you for money to buy that candy bar/toy/video game they’ve had their eye on.  It’s something every parent experiences often before your child can even talk (no joke, my kids were pointing at the animal cracker boxes at the grocery store before the age of 2).

Rather than treating this as an annoyance, instead look at it as an opportunity to foster the entrepreneurial spirit in your child.  Continue reading “Fostering the Entrepreneurial Spirit in Your Child”

He Who Rules the Checkbook

As a father and husband you have to wear many hats.  You have to be the protector,  the teacher, the strong ox, the one who guides them etc.  One thing I’ve also realized is how you also have to be in charge of the finances of your family and how you need to be the one who green lights all expenditures.

Book Review: Dylan Madden’s “Think And Go Hustle”

You hear all over the Manosphere that you should be creating side hustles to work on.  The reasons for this may vary -getting out of debt, quitting your soul-sucking job, retiring early, etc.- but the underlying reason is the same.

Freedom. Continue reading “Book Review: Dylan Madden’s “Think And Go Hustle””

Teaching Finances to Kids

“Children who reach the age of eighteen with their entire skills set composed on Nintendo and eating Doritos have been neglected. Their parents neglected to give them the character traits necessary to live successfully.”
-Dave Ramsey


I received a recent email from a gentleman named Will.  He suggested covering the topic of how to teach proper financing to your kids.  This is a topic that I’m not sure ever being discussed on any other Manosphere sites I’ve frequented so let’s dig in! Continue reading “Teaching Finances to Kids”

13 Daily Virtues: Resolution, Frugality, and Moderation

This is part two of a multi-part series which discusses a method Ben Franklin used to develop his character as a man.  Last week, I covered the first two.  Today we’ll go over the next three: Resolution, Frugality, Moderation.   Franklin provided a quick explanation that I’ll provide as well as my own interpretation, as well as how to employ these virtues in your life, and how it relates to red pill theory as a whole.

3 Potential Side Hustles For The Busy Dad

I should start this off by saying I’m not a dad. That being said I have worked with many dads who are looking to make some extra money on the side in addition to working full time and having time set aside for the wife and family.

There has been a lot of talk of “side hustles” with cost of living increasing, mass lay offs, and just for those that want to insure against potential set backs in the future. Continue reading “3 Potential Side Hustles For The Busy Dad”

Eating Healthy on the Cheap

Today I’m going to discuss a topic in the same vein as one of my recent articles regarding health and nutrition.  This post was inspired through a few different interactions, but the most notable exchange was with a gentleman on Twitter who posted this: Continue reading “Eating Healthy on the Cheap”
