When the New Year started, I’ve asked myself a simple yet deep question: Is there something that I’ve meant to try but just haven’t gotten around to it yet? For some very odd reason, my synapses immediately thought of something “highly exciting”. It’s fancy, got a luxurious flair and would fit with the sausages we’ve just bought. I finally wanted to try “Grey Poupon”! The mustard!!!

If you haven’t heard about “Grey Poupon” before, don’t worry.

Look no further. I got you covered. For me “Grey Poupon” was something I’ve associated with “luxury” but I never tried it actually. Somehow it’s not highly popular at all. After some research I figured “Grey Poupon” mustard had a genius marketing campaign in the 1980’s and that’s why it got featured by several rap artists in their songs and videos. I learned about it from rap songs… The name “Grey Poupon” sounds fancy and I can’t imagine of anything better to rhyme with “Evian”, “Dom Pérignon” or “Filet Mignon” than… “Grey Poupon”! …

In these last hours of 2020, I’m very thrilled to share my interview with The Millennial Money Woman aka Fiona with you! In my view she impersonates how to take advantage of a difficult year and turn it into a sky-high win. For me it was extremely inspiring to see how Fiona started her blog in the midst of the pandemic and grew at a breath-taking speed sharing financial literacy with the world.

“When the wind of change blows, some build walls, while others build windmills.”

An old Chinese proverb

If today you’re looking for inspiration about how to prepare yourself to make 2021 your best year ever, read my below interview with her — and please also find her interview with me on her blog — to truly kick-start 2021 and make it YOUR best year ever!!! …

A New Year is about to turn and maybe this next one will define a turning point for you financially. Maybe now is the time to start that business or writing gig you’ve been thinking about. Maybe it is time to finally give it a go!

The good news is that there has never been a more direct way to get into people’s minds. In this pandemic we are now more connected than ever. The entrepreneur now has an unbroken bond to an otherwise captive audience, craving consumption from their living room. …

We live in a wonderful suburban neighborhood and can walk to an awesome farm in as little as 5 minutes. Each season, the neighborhood farm will have different items on offer. They’ve just about finished cleaning up the last pumpkins and now you can get:

Christmas trees!

The $1 billion question is: What kind of tree to buy?

Did you know American consumers consistently spend more than one billion dollars on Christmas trees every holiday season!? In 2019, 26.2 million real Christmas trees were sold in the United States. There are around 300,000 acres in production for growing Christmas trees in the United States, according to the USDA. What an evergreen economy isn’t it? …

I’m thrilled to have “AOP” from the “The Art Of Purpose” as interview guest on my blog today.

If you don’t know him yet, here’s why I believe you should get to know him soon:

He’s taken “Money Twitter” by storm this year.

AOP used the Covid crisis as a chance to adapt and use his skills to start something new in his life. Right from the moment when Covid hit first in March 2020, his Twitter account @creation247 started to defy “social media gravity” and soared quickly past many others — at light speed!

Today, we’re going to explore his background story and I’m most certain you can take away inspiration and valuable insights about how to imagineer your own dream life going forward! …

This week we’ve watched a Halloween movie with my family, all of a sudden my son asked me: Why do you like to watch horror movies Papa? I had to think for quite some time, but then I replied: Fear — if done right — can be fun!

And of course he asked again: How?

The Upside of Fear

I explained to him that fear can be an exciting and healthy emotion to get exposed to, just think of how we enjoy going on roller coasters, how you can feel excitement when you can take a controlled risk in life and how we like the feeling when Haloween comes closer. …

Today I’m celebrating my birthday. I’m turning 41. Translated for you: It means I’m now closer to 50 than to 30 and closer to 60 than to 20. At least that’s what I’m thinking about right now. Also, 41 years means I’ve spent now more time living after the year 2000 than before. Hell, just think about it, 1990 is now further away than 2050.

Yes, birthdays get me thinking “about time” every single time.

And I like it.

Because time flies.

The speed of time is exactly 365.242189 days per year!

Is this fast? Is it slow? Well, that’s where it gets interesting, you…
