Without a co-host for consistent back and forth communication to create a conversation, and not willing to have this show turn into a soap box with just me talking at you, I decided that I’m going to have a bunch of different segments, pre-recorded and streamed during the live show. This will give me a bit of a break while doing the live broadcast, it will break up the show so that it doesn’t get redundant, hopefully it will be more entertaining, and by also uploading the individual segments to their own playlist on the Youtube channel, people can pick and choose their favorite parts.

One of the cornerstone ideas of Mustachianism is that at it’s most basic, it can be embraced by anyone, in any situation. I’ve interacted with all kinds of people, from all walks of life.

To begin with, no matter what happens as a result of monetization on this site (or any of my other ones), I’m not doing this for money. That will never be the goal. If anything, it will be a side-effect. GoCurryCracker writes about money made from their blog as Accidental Income. They write to provide knowledge, and because they like it. Simply, that is similar to why I am doing this. A more detailed post regarding my motivation is available here. Continue reading Monetization & Transparency
I purchased this item in August 2014 for $31.54. It’s solidly built, and have never had any issues with it. The grind is easily changed from super-fine to quite coarse. I can adjust this based on the quality and strength of the coffee I’m grinding. Continue reading
I mentioned before that I have a tendency to let perfect be the enemy of good. This site is part of overcoming that.
Let’s take a moment to break down the different action items that I’ve previously let give me an excuse to not continue the show. Continue reading The enemy of good
