If I had a Superpower I would be: Moneyman

Posted on June 25th, 2017.

I watched a show from the White Rabbit Project on Netflix about superpowers yesterday. They were trying to find out which superpower would be the best to have. They were testing exoskeletons, flying like “Jetman” (see video below), and freezing objects with liquid nitrogen. All of these “superpowers” are out of...

My Most Important Lesson I can Teach You for Making Money

Posted on June 18th, 2017.

One day I skipped school because I bought warrants for 1 200 USD and I wanted to monitor the situation. Within 3 hours I made $5 000. I sold it quickly and went to school. During a sociology class in high school, I...

Posted on June 15th, 2017.

I watched an interesting presentation on what makes a good life by Robert Waldinger yesterday. I was searching for an inspirational talk on “How to be successful” (blablabla), but I discovered Robert’s talk instead. And I believe the video is quite important for Gold Members of Hacked, as it is to me. I know that for...

People don’t Learn Finance; They Learn How to be a Slave

Posted on May 20th, 2017.

As far as I can remember – I’m 26 – we did not talk about personal economy during High School. The one aspect that has the largest effect on anyone’s lives. Even in college where...

On my way to $1 000 000

Posted on May 9th, 2017.

As I wrote in my previous post, I’ve decided to invest 33% of my income instead of 10% to reach my long term goal of $1 000 000 in equity. I changed it from 10% to 33% since I do not need more than 67% to pay for my mortgage and living expenses. My first investment (10 000 NOK = 1 200 USD) was in the Corporate Bond Fund...
