Studenomics TV: Why 30 is NOT The New 20
 
05:08
"It's all good. 30 is the new 20." We've all said this at some point. It's easy to put things off and to delay life. There's always an excuse out there. You're still young. Everything will work out. Take your time. The timing isn't right at the moment. ...and the excuses just add up! I used to delay by telling myself that I have time. Then I finally snapped in 2015. I realized that I was too close to 30 and too far away from my goals. I self-published 5 books and ruthlessly went after my other life-long goals. I was tired of wasting my time. There's a big difference between exploring and procrastinating. We show you exactly why 30 is not the new 20. You need this episode. Check out the article that digs deeper into this topic: http://studenomics.com/after-college/30-is-not-the-new-20/ “We often assume that the world moves at our leisure. We delay when we should initiate. We jog when we should be running or better yet, sprinting. And then we’re shocked –shocked!—when nothing big ever happens, when opportunities never show up, when new obstacles begin to pile up, or the enemies finally get their act together.” — Ryan Holiday

Five Ways That You Can Travel Even If You Think You Can't Afford it Right Now (Studenomics TV)
 
08:04
"It must be nice to be able to travel so much." Yes it is. I usually get a passive aggressive message or comment when I post a travel picture. I get it. You see that your friend's on a trip while you're working. It's tempting to write something negative. I want to show you the exact formula for figuring out how to travel more often so that you're not relegated to being awkward on social media. I'm positive that you would much rather be the person on the trip and not the person leaving an awkward comment on Instagram. I recorded this video for you guys while traveling around Australia. What are five ways that you can travel in the near future even if you think you can't afford it right now? #1: Apply for a job in a foreign country. I highlight my youngest brother Adrian who went to Australia on a one year work visa. He was a freelance barber at home and decided to apply for a job in Sydney. He now works at a barber shop full-time and makes more money than most of my friends. You don't have to live in luxury to travel. You can get a job somewhere else and relocate for a few months. #2: Good ol' fashioned budgeting and saving. Why complicate this stuff? If you start saving up and budgeting today, you could be on the road in a few months. Check out our best tips on saving money... The Cancun Technique for saving money: http://studenomics.com/rant/start-saving-money-2/ The Houdini System for putting your money away: http://studenomics.com/personal-finance/houdini/ #3: Teach English. I personally haven't done this as I'm not too keen on leaving for a year. I do have an amazing guest post below that highlights exactly how to do this... http://studenomics.com/outside-the-box-thinking/5-steps-to-get-you-hired-as-an-english-teacher-abroad/ #4: Create a digital income so that you can work from your laptop. Have you tried making money off your laptop? This will make it easy to move around and location independent. Please note that you're screwed if the wifi sucks! Check out how to start a blog: http://studenomics.com/entrepreneurship/start-online-biz-right-now/ #5: Go somewhere to learn a skill! Invest in yourself. Always invest in yourself. That trip to learn BJJ in Brazil or to become a scuba diving instructor in Thailand could help you make more money on your return.

Do you want to land your first freelancing client? Do you just want another freelancing client? This video goes into detail on how we've found freelancing clients in the past. What are five ways to land your first or next freelancing client? Strategy #1: Post an offer on Kijiji. This is what Theo did.

Studeomics TV: What You Need to Know About Branding Your New Business

"You need to brand yourself." -- said by every useless marketing expert out there. I used to hate talking about branding because it seemed like every single "marketing guru" had something to say about the topic. As I got more into my business, I eventually realized the importance of using branding to help your business stick out. You want people to remember your business. You also want to find the right audience so that you don't waste your time. In this video we discuss: Why you need to have a distinct identity for your new business. The importance of how you portray yourself to the world. The big issue with being vague and how it's hurting your business. The value of having a consistent theme for everything that you do. You can't dominate a niche if you don't even know what niche you're in. Check out this video and think about how you're going to focus on turning yourself into a brand. “You have to understand your own personal DNA.

Why Your Side Hustle Might Fail (Studenomics TV)
 
06:56
Are you thinking about starting a new side hustle? We look at why most side hustles will fail. Reason #1: You're not promoting it well. Do you have a brand (I know that word can be annoying)? Do you have a consistent theme? Are you promoting it the right way? Most people won't promote their business well. They'll do everything wrong from bothering friends to like their page to not caring about the customers. Reason #2: You're in it for the wrong reasons. Starting a side hustle isn't all about sharing motivational memes and calling yourself the CEO of the company. Reason #3: There's just no market for what you're offering. The world has enough life coaches. Your idea might seem like the best thing ever, the reality is that nobody else might care about it. Do some real research and talk to actual human beings to see if your business has a chance. Reason #4: You're not willing to put in the effort. You know, you may have to stop binge watching every show on Netflix. Starting a side hustle requires a ton of consistent effort over a long period of time. Are you willing to put in the effort?

Studenomics TV: How You Can Have a Social Life Without Going Broke

“If a man insisted always on being serious, and never allowed himself a bit of fun and relaxation, he would go mad or become unstable without knowing it.” — Herodotus How do you have a booming social life without going broke? How can you still have a fun life without stressing about your bank account? After the first date video, Trevor found himself spending way too much money on going out because he now had a busy social life.

Where you can meet interesting people. The kinds of groups that you should join.

Studenomics TV: Why You Shouldn't Stress About Conspiracy Theories
 
02:17
In this episode we look at why you shouldn't stress about conspiracy theories and things out of your reach. What's a conspiracy theory? According to Wikipedia: "A conspiracy theory is an explanation of an event or situation that invokes a conspiracy without warrant, generally one involving an illegal or harmful act carried out by government or other powerful actors. Conspiracy theories often produce hypotheses that contradict the prevailing understanding of history or simple facts." I'm all for entertainment and opening my eyes. I just don't want you to consume yourself with excuses for why you can't get ahead. You can spend your time building up your bank account and doing cool things. This sure beats stressing about every new conspiracy theory that comes out.

You Must Do This Before You Start That Business... (Studenomics TV)
 
05:39
What should you do before you start a business? We look at one important thing that you must do before you try to get that new side hustle off the ground. You must actually take the time to be decent at what you're trying to do. We also look at the biggest mistake that all aspiring freelancers and entrepreneurs make. What's this? They don't actually get good at what they're trying to promote! They end up promoting crap. It's tempting to watch Gary Vaynerchuk videos all day to feel inspired. It's fun to share inspirational quotes. At some point, you have to take the time to get good at the business that you want to get into. For example: Try to get into shape first before you start that fitness YouTube channel. Try to buy a property before you start writing articles on home ownership. You get the point?

Studenomics TV: Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Ghosting
 
11:02
You don't have to dress up for Halloween this year because you were already a ghost all year. What's ghosting? How does ghosting even impact your finances? "If you own a smartphone, you're carrying a 24-7 singles bar in your pocket." -- Aziz Ansari First off, what's ghosting? According to the Urban Dictionary: "The act of suddenly ceasing all communication with someone the subject is dating, but no longer wishes to date. This is done in hopes that the ghostee will just 'get the hint' and leave the subject alone, as opposed to the subject simply telling them he/she is no longer interested. Ghosting is not specific to a certain gender and is closely related to the subject's maturity and communication skills. Many attempt to justify ghosting as a way to cease dating the ghostee without hurting their feelings, but it in fact proves the subject is thinking more of themselves, as ghosting often creates more confusion for the ghostee than if the subject kindly stated how he/she feels." This video goes deep into ghosting on this very SPECIAL HALLOWEEN EDITION of Studenomics TV. We share personal stories on how we've been on both ends of the spectrum. We also show you exactly how to react when you get ghosted. Don't worry because it's not the end of the world. This is just dating in 2016. What's in here? 00:00 - 1:42.. The boys introduce the topic of ghosting along with an official introduction to the world of ghosting. We also talk about why ghosting ties into your money. 1:43 - 3:05. Ghosting's getting out of control. The guys talk about why it's just too easy to ghost these days. 3:06 - 4:51. Why do people ghost? Trevor talks about how he got ghosted recently and how he reacted. You might cry. Martin then shares a pretty funny ghosting story. 4:52 - 5:50. Martin tells you why you're always getting ghosted. 5:51 - 8:43. Martin explains the THREE BEST STRATEGIES for reacting to getting ghosted. You need to STOP doing this one thing that Martion mentions ASAP. 8:44 - 9:55. Trevor shares a hilarious story of how he called out a girl after getting ghosted. 9:56 - 11:02. When's it okay to ghost? There's one occasion. If you want to avoid the friend zone, you need to read my book, "I Like You as a Friend." http://bit.ly/likeyouasafriend "I don’t have a girlfriend. But I do know a woman who’d be mad at me for saying that." -- Mitch Hedberg

Studenomics TV: How We Used Social Media to Actually Make Money
 
02:30
In this quick episode, we discuss how we've both made money off social media. There's too many people out there using social media the wrong way. We don't want you to be one of those people. You don't have to vent about every problem or go off on society when you log in to Facebook. You can actually use those social media apps on your phone for something productive. We did an entire podcast on finding the right social media platform for your business: http://www.doyouevenhustle.net/034-social-media-platform/ I wrote an article about using Facebook the right way: http://studenomics.com/application/100-facebook-friends/ "When I hear people debate the ROI of social media? It makes me remember why so many business fail. Most businesses are not playing the marathon. They're playing the sprint. They're not worried about lifetime value and retention. They're worried about short-term goals." -- Gary Vaynerchuk
