What does every man need in his facial hair grooming kit? Well the essentials should always be with him if he’s going on vacation or a business trip. I’m getting ready for my trip to Amsterdam and was preparing the things I’ll need on my trip when I decided to organize and pack my grooming essentials.
Manual Shaver
When I use a shaver, I prefer the practical non-electric shaver. I use the Gillette Fusion manual shaver because instead of going over the same spot five or six times, the Fusion does the …

Sometimes people need to really relax about their problems and cheer the fuck up. You’re alive, life is good, everything could be a lot worse. So what’s missing? What’s missing is to occasionally enjoy that one life you’ve got. Whenever I go out, I call out two of my mates to come out with me. Is it because I only have two mates? No. I have around five close friends, but the fact is I know that the rest of them either won’t come out or will take a hell …

Some may have had some misunderstandings with some of the posts I have written sometime ago and I just wanted to clarify a few points. When I give “how-to” advice to others or advice on certain ways men should act, these were just advice and not rules on their lifestyles. Today I’d like to say that before anyone can take those advice and choose to live a certain lifestyle of importance or success, they must find themselves. This is crucial in becoming a motivated and productive person. Without having found your own identity in the world, it …

I was reading a post entitled Success & Motivation – 2009 on Blog Maverick and there was a quote that really stuck with me that goes something like: “The new job you just took that you thought would be amazing, will be amazing. Most probably it will be amazing for about 3 months. Then you will realize its not so amazing and you will need to find something else that is amazing. Thats ok. You don’t have to be right everytime. You just have to be right one time. …

I was thinking for a long time what to write about for my next blog post and noticed that the late Hunter S. Thompson’s birthday is coming up on the 18th and decided to pay a homage to the one and only Gonzo Journalism creator and one of the only men to come onto this planet and lead a life of freedom. The brave one who most definitely did not sit in the sidelines, but one whose ambitions of youth allowed him to scourge the minds of secure and contained …

Not too long ago I wrote a motivational post for Darren Rowse at Problogger.net and thought it would be a good idea to follow it up on my own blog. Recently I’ve been feeling somewhat down about a lot of things. Everything I’ve been doing that I hoped would make me a lot of money hasn’t been paying off as well as I’ve hoped. As mentioned in the guest post I wrote, I became a real estate agent, finishing up university for my political science degree, working on a variety …

I was recently watching a TedTalk on Youtube about success being a continuous journey instead of a single path from the bottom to the top. I agreed with this completely and loved the entire speech Richard gave. However, I wanted to add something to it, which I found to be important and helpful for people on their journey of success. What I wanted to talk about it being grounded. Now what exactly does being grounded mean? Well, many people have their own definition of the term, but in my opinion …
