Minted but Miserable

Last Wednesday at around 1:30pm, when I was sat in my local Starbucks enjoying a cup of coffee whilst working on my book, I met a woman named Sarah. Sarah is 43-years old. She’s bubbly, she’s beautiful, and she’s also single. Sarah doesn’t have any children but she does have her own home and works […]

Cut The Connection

Wanna know a formidable productivity hack? It’s not common, but it is pretty cool. And it brims with effectiveness. Around ninety minutes ago, I boarded an airplane from London to Dubai. I didn’t really. But for argument’s sake, let’s imagine that I did. Okay? Okay. Now, usually, at this point, I’d be scrolling aimlessly through […]

Failure is Fortune

I still receive countless messages from people asking me about how I was able to create a successful business in such a short space of time back in 2015. Well, not to dampen your spirits, but this “successful business” that you’re referring to actually ended up failing in the early stages of 2018… Despite making […]

Ego Is The Enemy

Two years ago today, I was fortunate enough to buy my dream car. And just six months ago, that same car got repossessed… Prior to me waving goodbye to my dream car, I had to go through a rather intense in-person interview with the finance company that I was in contract with. The main aim […]

Braving The Fire

It’s 5:47pm on a Monday afternoon and I feel like I’m about to serve 25 to life. Now, I know what I’m about to say is a form of throat clearing. And I am also aware that this goes against the rules of what constitutes as good writing. But screw it, rules are there to […]

Edinburgh in August

Similar to the yearly celebration of Mardi Gras in New Orleans, when Edinburgh and the month of August are coupled together, things can get a little wild. August is the month of the Fringe Festival here in Edinburgh. It attracts tens of thousands of people from all around the world. Flocks of people come to […]

Down But Never Out

Have you ever felt like just lying in bed all day, staring at a blank wall and isolating yourself from anybody and everybody? If so, you are not alone. First of all, it’s important to understand that mental health isn’t one of those ‘one size fits all’ kinda things. It can present itself in a […]

Perspective

When you sight the food below, what do you see? Do you see low-quality nutrition? Do you see value for money? Or, do you see tools for survival? For me, personally, all of the above should not be ruled out. Why, then, would I be purchasing such food and expending energy discussing such a matter? […]

The Lonely Traveler

Every so often during my travels, I am struck with a severe bout of loneliness. Today has been one of those days. As I sit down to write this article, I can’t help but notice that many people are sitting outside bars and restaurants enjoying themselves. And here I am, surrendering myself to the confines […]
