An insurance incentive to save hundreds?

An insurance incentive to save hundreds?

A while ago I was looking into car insurance options because FireBear and I considered moving to NJ for tax purposes. NJ Taxes < NY taxes. After wading through the intriguing market of car insurance, we found a pretty interesting company. Though we ultimately didn’t move to NJ, our research was not for naught as I can now write about it on our blog. Unfortunately, my research for health care wasn’t the best. I couldn’t find a startup that did…

Travel Hacking Japan 5: Nara

Travel Hacking Japan 5: Nara

Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3 | Part 4 | Part 5 Nara was my favorite place we visited in Japan. It’s about an hour from Kyoto by train so we just left our things in our Kyoto hotel as we got into Nara in the morning. We didn’t want to check in somewhere and then have to leave our suitcases. We were welcomed by this adorable deer mascot as soon as we got off the train. You’ll…

Travel Hacking Japan 4: Kyoto

Travel Hacking Japan 4: Kyoto

Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3 | Part 4 | Part 5 We were so excited to try the only place in Japan with dry-aged Wagyu beef. The restaurant is called Pound Steakhouse, and is situated just a few minutes from the palace. with the banchan and kimchi offered, it felt more like a Korean restaurant, even with the grilling, but the waiter insisted it was Japanese. The service was a bit spotty, but we figured it was…

Travel Hacking Japan 3: Nikko

Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3 | Part 4 | Part 5 We took the Tobu train to Nikko from Asakusa in Tokyo because we didn’t get the JR Rail pass as it wasn’t worth it for us. We walked out to a rainy town and bought some fresh warm mochi before heading off. We were quickly stopped by a Japanese woman who mimed if we’d like to try a strawberry. There was a famous strawberry festival or…

1.55% Return: Stop letting the big banks fleece your savings account

1.55% Return: Stop letting the big banks fleece your savings account

Every so often I switch savings accounts because I’m forever chasing the highest yielding savings account. Why let the big bangs fleece your return from you? There was a time where I didn’t know what the interest was on my savings account. I was in college and just opened a bank account because I had moved and my local credit union didn’t exist at the college I was at. Funny enough, the big bank I signed up with had a…

Travel Hacking Japan 2: Tokyo Days 2-3

Travel Hacking Japan 2: Tokyo Days 2-3

Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3 | Part 4 | Part 5 Day 2 started out with us getting French pastries in a cute little bakery. The baker is French and originally started in France. Japanese breakfast didn’t seem to fit our appetite. My favorite was the little cube cookies that melted in your mouth. Unfortunately, the store has closed all its Tokyo locations :(, but maybe you can visit them on your next trip to France? After we…

Arbitrage Series: Can you Time the Market? Yes.

Arbitrage Series: Can you Time the Market? Yes.

That is, if you’re Max-Hervé George and a select number of other people. They can time the market perfectly. From 1997 to 2007, George grew his portfolio at an annualized rate of 68.6 percent. He’s unsure about post-2007, because the validity of the contract is still in litigation. But as it stands, yes, he and a select few can actually arbitrage, or time the market. So, where do I get an arbitrage contract? Imagine if someone offered you a contract in…

Who would you bet on to change the future?

Who would you bet on to change the future?

I’d bet on Elon Musk. Once in a while you see someone who will truly transform a society in an industrial way. Benjamin Franklin, for marketing the power of electricity. James Watt, for his steam engine invention, propelling the industrial revolution forward. Ford, who made Model T cars accessible to the general population with his assembly line process. The Wright Brothers, with their experiments in aviation, allowing us to connect in shorter periods of time than ever before. I can’t…

How I Made $300/hr as a High School Student

How I Made $300/hr as a High School Student

As I write this, I’m really telling this story to “older me”, because sadly, “older me” is more afraid to fail than younger me was. Perhaps the increased failure rate I’ve encountered as an adult has encouraged me to fail less. I need to start failing more, just like I did in college. I turned out fine, and so will you. A story in which everyone has the same chance It was senior year of high school, and the guidance…
