Why You Should Think Twice Before You Monetize Hobbies
SUCCESS Magazine
by Tayla Blaire

People don’t necessarily set out to monetize hobbies. Sometimes a hobby becomes costly, and earning some cash is a way to offset the expense. In other cases, we’re approached by people who wish to purchase the fruits of our free-time labor. Often, getting paid for your hobby feels like a low-barrier route to making more money while combating the rising cost of living.

Giving Back: DKMS Is ‘Deleting’ Blood Cancer, One Donor at a Time
SUCCESS Magazine
by Em Cassel
2d ago
In 1990, Katharina Harf’s mother, Mechtild, was diagnosed with acute leukemia. She needed to find a stem cell donor, and none of her six siblings or other family members were a match. But there was a bigger problem. “Back then, there were only 3,000 donors on the German registry,” says Harf of the country where she was born and raised. “And basically, 3,000 donors is nothing if you want to find a donor.” This is how, in 1991, DKMS (or Deutsche Knochenmarkspenderdatei, if your German is good) got its start. Katharina’s father, millionaire Peter Harf, a brilliant businessman and longtime executi ..read more

Your resume is polished, your cover letter impeccable and you have researched your potential new company extensively. Then, you are hit with a question out of left field, and you have no idea why.

The word “negotiation” brings all sorts of different scenarios to mind—high-profit mergers and acquisitions, tense hostage situations, employment contracts and messy divorce proceedings, to name a few. Ultimately, the goal of these and any other negotiation is reaching an agreement, regardless of context. But despite what TV shows like Succession would have you believe, reaching that agreement doesn’t usually involve backstabbing, name-calling or other nefarious tactics. For Camp Negotiation Systems co-owner and chief negotiation officer Todd Camp, negotiation is a family affair. His late fath ..read more

Most people hate taxes. Sales tax. Income tax. Employment tax. Property tax. Every day, these and a host of other taxes are sucking money from hardworking people. In fact, the average person in a developed country spends 25%–35% of their lifetime working to pay taxes. Add in how stressful it can be to pay some of these taxes, and it’s easy to understand the loathing. On the other hand, I love taxes. Ever since I was a kid working in the accounting department of my father’s printing company, I’ve found them fascinating.

Navigating the world of health insurance is complicated enough within the United States. Add international borders and health care regulations, and things can get overwhelming.

5 Awe-Inspiring Itineraries Through Japan

As a travel journalist, it’s easy to get lost in the beauty of the world, from the Caribbean’s cerulean sea, to the pulsating music and cultural traditions of Brazil. Still, few places in the world have left an impact on me quite like Japan. The first time I landed in the country in 2017, I was enamored by Tokyo’s glowing skyscrapers, Kyoto’s quiet kissatens (cafes) and countryside hills blanketed in electric shades of orange and fuschia that flashed like neon lights aboard the country’s famous bullet train. And though the bustling streets and quiet corners of the country are reason enough for ..read more
