Hello there! I’m Richard, and welcome to my bio page!
Here is a summary of my current content and what I am working on:
It’s a question that we see all too common: “How do I find a tech-cofounder?”.
Whenever I join a community, FB group, or something similar, I always see this question commonly pop up. I even get asked this by close friends interested in entrepreneurship who have this “amazing” idea and just need someone techie to help build the product.
Unfortunately, if this is your first train of thought, you’re already approaching this problem the wrong way. The first step is not about finding a technical person to build your product, but rather do you need one to start with?
It was 2015, and I was working on my first startup project with three others. After my full-time job, I would focus my attention on it during the night and weekends.
The mindset was to work on it as a side hustle and eventually convert it into a full-time thing once we could raise money on it. We managed to get a few customers to start off, but after making mistakes, we eventually closed down after a year when one of our founders left.
It’s the classic story that never gets told since the media likes to sensationalize the rags…
Ever since I came out of college, I’ve always focused on ‘hustling.’ This meant trying to grow my brand, work on my startups, and doing all of this while maintaining a full-time job.
Hustling has become a major phenomenon in recent years. After all, with the pandemic, many have realized that making extra income is necessary to maintain a specific lifestyle or even just to pay down their credit card balance.
With millennials and Gen Z, a major focus has been dedicated to building hustling empires, making money, or growing your own brand. …
Marketing tactics have always been developing over the years. With the pandemic, we saw many organizations focus on an all-in digital strategy. Companies like Microsoft announced that their flagship event would go virtual for at least 1.5 years, and other businesses have done so similarly, with a focus on a digital plan.
The growth of new digital tactics and modern techniques has generated more attention than their older and more traditional counterparts. This is especially important for new marketing leaders who need to bring new innovations into their company.
Thus, for the last 5–10 years, we’ve seen a huge development…
Talking about money, especially what people make, can always be a sensitive topic. Generally, I wouldn't say I like talking about the concept of six figures as it’s not really a benchmark people should be going for. However, I also wanted to make it known that marketers out there are worth more than they think.
I was on a Facebook thread recently when someone posted a question about jobs that could make six figures. This was in an investing forum, but people were generally pretty open to talking about their jobs and investment choices.
For many, launching a startup might be the dream. But in a recent post I wrote, I gave another perspective that perhaps joining a startup might be more lucrative depending on your situation.
There is a tonne of reasons why you should join one after all — high growth, fun culture, meaningful work, and the list goes on.
However, many soon realize that working at a startup can be tricky, especially from a completely different background. It’s a high-paced environment where you’re expected to pull your own weight and put on a lot of different extra hats on.
Everyone needs money. From paying bills to planning a holiday, it’s nice to have a bit of extra money lying around.
This is why I kickstarted this one-month challenge in the first place — a chance to find new side income sources that don’t take away from your current lifestyle.
I give myself one month to work on it to see how much money I can realistically make.
For the video — here it is below, but to read more about the story, keep following below it.
I was in a Facebook group, replying to someone’s post, which focused…
Recently, Zoë Roth, who was the kid in the ‘disaster girl’ meme, sold it as an NFT for half a million dollars. With the rise of both memes and NFTs in recent years, it has become a factor of life that these two concepts are here to stay and ironically go hand in hand.
We have seen many popular videos and photos since gone up on NFT platforms to sell for big bucks. These originators might have been famous from one piece of media but have finally gotten a chance to profit from them after years of being ‘meme’d.’
There is no doubt that the pandemic had major effects across the world in a variety of industries. Travel, aviation, and retail were hit especially hard with companies going bankrupt or cutting staff in order to save on costs.
There is, however, one brand that appeared to take the brunt of the damage early, especially with the fact that it had a false association with the coronavirus.
This was the well-known brand of beer called Corona. …
