Howdy from Austin, Texas! Welcome to the 82 new subscribers who have joined us since last month. Y’all are in good company.
April was quite the month:
Grew my Twitter following to 17K followers
Earned $1,600 in side hustle income
Interviewed on Jason’s Brain Blasts Podcast (shout out to my boy Jason Levin)
Celebrated my Grandpa’s 90th birthday
Nonetheless, I have a ton of great stuff to share with you all.
Here’s what we got in store for this month…
Getting Swole and Flexy with ROMWOD
100% Remote Work Sucks
Let’s dive in.
I’ve scaled my writing business to be making around what I am making at my full-time job. However, now that I am working more, I’ve been forced to be a little more efficient with my time. That means being more efficient with my workouts.
I wrote this piece to share some of my go-to workouts for when I’m in a time crunch.
My friend Joe Wells inspired me to try ROMWOD. ROMWOD is a personalized mobility program. Although I consider myself pretty fit, my mobility sucks. I literally can’t sit on the floor cross-legged comfortably
Long story short, I’ve been doing ROMWOD for the past two weeks and have been absolutely loving it; so much that I brought a yoga mat with me on my business trip to Austin.
Besides helping me improve my mobility, ROMWOD has been great for my mental health. I’ll either hit a session midday when I need a break from work or before bed. It’s done wonders in helping me relax.
ROMWOD has been a “twofer” for me. Improving my mobility and improving my mental health.

For those who don’t know, I started my career in the middle of the pandemic. There are some people I have been working with for two years who I have never met in person. This blows my mind!
This past week I’ve been in Austin, Texas working in person with some co-workers. Man have I been missing out. I love the freedom of working remotely, but I can’t ignore how happy it makes me to work in person.
I think this topic warrants a much longer piece, but I have an early flight to catch and need to head to bed.
TL;DR: This week I had the realization I need to prioritize in-person work.
I do a lot of thinking about what it means to be happy. I think this tweet pretty much nails it for me.
I’ve spent 100s of hours reading and writing about personal finance. A very controversial topic in the personal finance space is whether or not you should max out your 401k.
For the past year, I’ve been in the “Max Out Your 401k” camp. That all changed after reading this article by Nat Elison. Now, I’m only contributing up to my employer’s match.
TL;DR: When you’re young, it’s better to have cash on hand so you can make more bets. For me, this is investing in assets that can make me more than the average 8% that the S&P500 spits out every year: e-commerce stores, real estate, crypto, etc.
max out your 401k or buy 401 NFTs? the choice is yours
