On a recent flight, I read a book by the infamous David Goggins of YouTube fame. At least, that is where I first heard of him. I saw him mentioned on Joe Rogan’s show, and he would pop up when I was looking for motivational videos to watch.
Honestly, at the time, he just seemed like a super motivated motivational speaker who was a little over the top. This turned out to be not far from the truth. However, most guru types you come across are all-talk frauds. Their stories are full of carefully crafted allegories to win people over. Not this guy. At least not from what I could tell. His story is horrible, fantastic, and motivating all at once. This blog will give my thoughts on his fascinating and insanely motivating book, Can’t Hurt Me.
Every once in a while, I will be doing reviews on software, products, and anything else I try on my way to F.I.R.E.(Financial Independence Retire Early). My primary goal for these blogs is to provide “no BS” reviews to help others make well-informed decisions on things recommended in the financial independence community.
Personally, I don’t fully trust most reviews I find online. So many personalities from YouTube, lifestyle blogs, etc., are getting paid to provide a “good review that muddy the waters for us consumers. I appreciate their hustle; however, a monetary-driven review has little utility for me.
These blogs will not be influenced by money. They will be an honest take on my experiences with whatever I am writing about—hopefully, better serving you readers.
Now that the stage is set, time for the first review, the Mint Mobile phone service.
