The Many CycleLogical Benefits of Riding a Bike

Before I begin, let me apologize to my non-American readers.  This Cyclelogical post uses statistics and numbers that are US-based.  That said, don’t let that take away from the overall message of this post which is this:  riding a bike is good for you in almost every conceivable way.

Financial Independence

Reach Financial Independence Using The Three Solutions Rule

Three Solutions Rule

I’ve been with my current employer for nearly five years now.  Throughout that time I’ve held a few different positions, worked on various teams, and had a handful of different managers, but something I learned during my very first week on the job has stuck with me the entire time.  I call it the ‘3 Solutions’ rule and I believe it can help all of us reach financial independence.

Debt Elimination

Payback’s A Bitch

Payback is a bitch

Have you ever done something, either nefarious or hilarious, to someone else?  Something that almost certainly means payback is in order?  Usually you don’t know how or when payback will find you, but you know it’s coming.  And all you can do is wait.

It’s a terrible feeling.  Constantly looking over your shoulder.  Being suspicions of almost everything and everyone.  You walk on eggshells, just waiting for the payback to happen till eventually you end up wishing for it to happen so that you can just get on with your life already!  The anticipation is awful.

Yes, payback sucks.  Do you know what else sucks?  Paying back.  As in debt.

23 Side Hustle Jobs I’ve Done To Make Money

Side Hustle Jobs

I’ve been finding unique ways to hustle for cash since I was a young kid. The first side hustle that I can remember was collecting balls from the city softball fields near my home.  That complex had four fields and there seemed to be games each night during the summer.

On game nights, each filed was used for several hours so there were a lot of home runs and foul balls hit. I could collect $0.10 for every ball that I chased down and returned to the scorekeeper’s table.  I’d leave the fields each night with $10 to $20 bucks – more than enough to make me feel rich!

Hustle. Make money. Lesson learned!
