“Risk comes from not knowing what you’re doing”— Warren Buffett
This quote, from one of the all-time most successful investors, is a perfect segue into the story of a 25-year-old post-grad student, looking to make his first foray into the world of stock trading.
So we start from the beginning with a little bit of context.
I am fresh out of University, newly graduated, navigating the world of career searches and financial burden. A few friends and I would be having our weekly stock market discussion, which by then had basically become scripted…
Me: Did you see (insert stock name)…
I remember the days when every business owner carried a stack of crisp business cards at all times, ready to dish them out at a moment's notice.
There was a time when this was the most widely accepted way to exchange information. A simple trade — business card for business card — could facilitate a life long relationship.
Super simple. Name and/or company name, contact info, address, and maybe some extra info or a tagline. That’s about it.
People seemed to really enjoy the whole development and design process as well. I would often see businesses still in their pre-launch…
The term “HODL” was coined (pun intended) within an early Bitcoin forum in which a poster misspelled the word HOLD. The term was then adopted and used in place of the properly spelled word for comedic effect.
Some people interpreted it as an acronym that stands for “hold on for dear life” which plays into the idea of holding a trade position.
Example: “We may be on a down trend but don’t sell your position, we have to HODL for the long term”.
A pump and dump occurs when a group of investors hold a substantial percentage of a coin’s…
Fortnite is an online video game that started out as a zombie-style PVE (player versus environment) title, released in July of 2017. In September of the same year, Fortnite Battle Royale was released as a player versus player (PVP) version of the original game.

Instagram provides users with the ability to put up to 30, count em’ THIRTY hashtags on any given post. This of course does not mean you have to drop 30 hashtags on every post, but if you have the space, why not use it?
There is a lot of conflicting information floating around the internet, some of which says that using too many hashtags on your post will have the same effect as keyword stuffing on written web content. This however is not the case.
Written web content will be identified and therefore handled differently than hashtag space on Instagram…
Spending time nurturing your audience is one of the most important precursors to any online launch. If you don’t have credibility, relationships and trust built into your community, people won’t likely buy from you.
How many times in your life have you bought or done something without hesitation simply because a trusted authority figure told you to? This is the power of authority.
How do you gain authority? Not necessarily through a degree, certificates or publications about you (sure those things can help). Even if all of those aspects are in place, they don’t mean anything if you don’t use…
The online influencer community is one that has grown exponentially since the dawn of social media. Millions upon millions of accounts have been created in hopes that their tiny plot of digital land can produce an income.
Have you ever come across someone’s social media page to find a perfectly curated life. It looks like all they do for a living is look good and take pictures of it. WHAT DRUGS ARE THESE PEOPLE ON?

There are 4 major types or categories of influencer, based on audience size.
When someone who knows nothing about professional football is asked to “name one NFL player” by their super fan friend, nine times out of ten that person is going to respond with, well Tom Brady of course!
The man has become an absolute legend in the eyes of so many, and this isn’t breaking news. Tom Brady has been labeled the GOAT (greatest of all time) when it comes to NFL quarterbacks, and even his biggest critics are hard pressed to make a case otherwise.
April 16th 2000: Brady is drafted by the New England Patriots in the sixth round…

Here is a full list of ingredients in the Pfizer vaccine (pulled directly from the Canadian Product Monograph) with an added aside as to why they are in there:
Active Ingredient: Modified messenger RNA (mRNA) which encodes the viral spike glycoprotein of SARS-CoV-2 (the COVID-19 virus). The spike is the part of the virus that enables it to enter our cells so that the virus can then go on to cause infection. …
