Featured Post

In the age of social media and modern technology, we’ve lost the ability to focus. A lot of people like to say that they have ADHD, and while it’s no surprise that numbers are rising you don’t exactly need to be medically diagnosed to feel totally scattered all the time. ADHD or not, you definitely ARE […]

7 Stages to Level Up Your Life into Financial Freedom

When I first made the leap into entrepreneurialism, I wanted it all. I wanted everything at once. I wanted to build my dream business overnight and have an enormous community of fans and friends and make millions of dollars creating products I loved. Having zero experience and a small network, those ambitions soon sputtered out. […]


It’s official! Rich20Something just acquired Under30CEO. 4 years ago, I had the crazy idea to build a website and, somehow, ignite a community dedicated to helping young people start businesses and build better lives. I thought my idea was special and unique…until I checked Google!! I stumbled across Under30CEO and it seemed as if someone […]

That Awkward Moment You Know You’ve Hit Entrepreneurial Puberty

There’s no singular secret to success. We all know that. But there are inflection points. One thing that always perplexed me about business (especially in the online world) was how it seemed like some people just EXPLODED on the scene. Take Tai Lopez, for example. He’s a good example of someone who you’re just like, […]

What Social Media Isn’t Telling You About “Productivity”

I BET that at one point in your life, you believed something to be 100% true…and now no longer believe it. My limiting belief was about what it means to hustle/work hard. I used to think that staying up late to finish something was the best solution to getting things done. Or that I needed to […]

How To Make Your Own “Money Machine” (new series)

Over the past few days I’m HOPING I’ve built up the hype machine and created some mystery and anticipation. You know something’s brewing over here in Rich20 land but you don’t know what.

How Savvy Marketers Hack Your Wallet With Psychology (new series)

 Yesterday we learned how marketing really works by breaking down the now classic Old Spice commercial, The Mom Song. >> Check that out here if you need a little refresher At this point, you’re probably thinking… “Okay, cool. Funny commercial. But remind me again…what’s the point of this totally free mini-course?” Well, one, I love […]

How to make…ONE BILLION DOLLARS (new series)

I don’t know about you but I woke up this morning and did the following: Pooped Pushed ‘Power’ on the automatic coffee machine Ordered more coffee on Amazon to be shipped to my door Turned on my favorite song via Spotify Ordered an Uber to get to the office asap to do a Skype interview […]

Are You Missing the “GO” Factor?

In 2003, the Human Genome Project was hailed a massive success. We’d officially mapped out the entire genetic makeup of human DNA, save a tiny percentage, with 99.9% accuracy. It doesn’t matter who you are, where you came from or what your mother’s maiden name is — scientists now know with astonishing certainty what you […]

How to Make Your Work Go Viral Without Trying (What Seth Godin Told Me)

A few years ago, I had my first piece of writing go “viral.” It was called “An Open Letter To Frustrated 20-Somethings.” It started off as a Facebook rant that got picked up and spread all over the world. (Here’s the original Facebook post.) Fascinated by the experience, I wanted to make it happen again. […]

The Secret Superpower of Prolific Artists

Since today was Martin Luther King Day, I decided to watch some of his speeches…and that led to more searches. Eventually I fell through the click hole vortex and into Wikipedia. You know how that shit goes. But here’s something I didn’t know: MLK died at 39. Now, I don’t know about you, but since […]

5 lil’ tidbits to KILL “Motivation Masturbation” in 2016

Perhaps you’ve noticed the feeling before… You’re on Facebook or Instagram, scrolling through your feed consuming post after post of “valuable” content and inspiring information. You start getting pumped up, don’t you? I know I do. It feels great to look at other people doing really well and think to yourself, “That could be me!” […]

The truth about people who play “Devil’s Advocate”

One thing that bothers me is the concept of playing “Devil’s Advocate.” Oftentimes, if we come up with a good idea, friends, family and coworkers will look to find reasons why it won’t work. They’ll look for reasons why we might fail…but they’ll frame it in the guise of trying to “help” us. “I was just […]

The 13-Month Year

There’s a disturbance in the Force.   The weather is getting colder. Winter is setting in. The holiday season is soon upon us. I’ve found that there are primarily two types of people that emerge when the holiday haze hits. Which one are you?                        […]


I’m sick of people saying that the 20 and 30-somethings of today are the “Entitlement Generation.” Time Magazine calls us the “Me, Me, Me Generation.” The common line of thought is that our generation wants more than we “deserve” and we’re not willing to work for it. We’re then compared to generations of the past […]

How to train your mind to see the good in every situation

Remember that ridiculously cheery, borderline creepy scene from Mary Poppins where the children (rightfully so) complain about having to clean up their room? (If you weren’t forced to watch that movie in kindergarten like every other normal child on earth, the entire song the ensues revolves around a “spoonful of sugar.”) I was never a […]

Why One 3 Letter Word Could Change Your Life Forever

You can read “how-to” articles all day about starting a business, building your brand or getting customers. They make the whole process seem so easy, don’t they? But actually making the decision become an entrepreneur? Now that’s a tough decision. It’s scary! It’s uncertain! There’s a chance you might fail. In fact you probably WILL […]

Why You Should Pursue Your Dream Even If Nobody Encourages You

Whenever you try to make positive changes in your life, you’ll experience resistance. Sometimes, the resistance is internal, meaning you vs. yourself. Waking up earlier to go to the gym sucks. Much easier to press “snooze.” Politely declining that slice of pizza when your coworkers just happen to be throwing another impromptu party….agony. Same thing with starting a business. Sometimes […]

Ask Better Questions, Get Better Answers (Overcoming Mental Barriers)

Kids can be realllllly annoying at times. Case in point: The “Why” game. Aren’t familiar? I bet you are. Let me refresh you. It goes something like this: Kid: Why is it so cold outside today? You: Because the temperature is below freezing. Kid: Why? You: Because there was a cold front that pushed cold […]

How To Get A TON of Work Done Without Having Any Discipline

Have you ever tried to undertake a massive project — but just couldn’t seem to summon the willpower or discipline to follow through? Ummm yeah…I definitely have. We all have. In fact, I’ll take it one step further: I’ll assert that the #1 reason most people don’t get what they want out of life (relationships, […]
