Recession money moves

Jul 29, 2022 12:31 pm

I hate paying full price for anything—but especially for software. I never wanted to buy a subscription product again, so I created AppSumo 12 years ago. Now it’s the #1 site for software deals for startups. Check it out—save money.

Recently, I got called “rudderless” in regards to dating.

I love that concept.

The thought of a rudder on a boat is relevant in so many ways. What direction are you going? How are you recognizing the opportunity cost when you’re just floating around in the ocean? What are you saying no to?

To reduce being rudderless in work, relationships, health, and life—it’s important to be clear about where you want to go. Then believe you can get there and say no to the things that don’t help you on the way to your destination. 

Good luck sailing!


💰 Recession Money Moves w/ Ramit Sethi


My buddy Ramit is a financial advisor who helps people without rich parents or who didn’t learn anything about money at school make smarter financial decisions so they can live rich lives—whatever that means to them.

I caught up with him on the podcast to get his take on the recession (if there is one), why he doesn’t think people should buy a house, and more. 

Listen to find out:

  1. How rich people prepare for a recession and what they do differently
  2. Why renting can be a smarter investment than buying
  3. Which vehicle Ramit thinks is the biggest waste of money

Check it out on Spotify here and on Apple Podcasts here.

🕰️ Clocker


I’ve been in Barcelona for a few months (a little work, a little pleasure) and been keeping up with my team using the Clocker desktop app (it’s FREE).

It’s WAY more customizable than the standard clock app, which helps me keep track of different time zones more easily while I’m on the go. Plus, I can see different time zones at a glance right from my home screen.

If you’re traveling soon or have co-workers/loved ones in another time zone, it’s worth a download.


Get to your meetings on time.

🎼 Philip Glass


Some people swear by listening to classical music while they work, but I… am not really that kind of person.

BUT, Philip Glass caught my attention.

Just nice to have something relaxing in my ears while my mind goes a million miles an hour.

First two songs on the list slap.

Take a brain break.

Be Epic,
