    After last week’s Vanguard FTSE’s All-World, this week’s feature: Vanguard S&P 500 What’s Vanguard S&P 500? Opposed to last week’s All World tracker, the S&P 500 is an index fund that tracks companies around the world in the US that are making it rain. Its main investment group is tech with 25.22% and its top 5 positions are Apple, Microsoft, Amazon, Facebook and Alphabet. S&P500 Risks? you’re investing…

  • investing in REITS

    📈 If you don’t want to spend a fortune on buying real estate

    Then buy REITs. I momentarily forgot buying stocks isn’t “just buying parts of companies/raw materials”. Well actually it is, bút instead of your average Tesla/S&P500/Facebook stock, you can also invest in real estate. Tony reminded me again in one of his books to invest in REITS aka “Real Estate Investment Trusts” Bluntly: REITS are lower risk, lower work…

    Recession proof pet industry

    This goes out to my Edens, Valeskas, Sophies and Anjas – either in / interested in / have a newfound hobby in pets. Or business and ideas in general. Nothing new – but another confirmation that you might just need to jump at because you guys have an advantage versus the rest of the crowd.…

    Better “Bitch” than “Mouse” – RIP RBG

    IT WAS SO FRUSTRATING to only discover about RBG’s existence since this weekend.. yes I just crawled from under a rock, don’t judge 🙅🏻‍♀️. If you’re with me and didn’t know about her – here’s a quick summary of why we should’ve known about Ruth Bader Ginsburg already. Ruth was one of nine women in a Harvard class of 500+ men,…

    Underdog boss ladies, part II: Vicky Tsai / Tatcha

    I don’t know cosmetics, I have no patience researching it. I just follow what Janet/Naomi slap on their face and then I copy it. I never heard about Tatcha, but learnt that their products are inspired by what Geisha’s use in their skincare routine and Kim K and Princess/Duchess/Rachel Zane/ Meghan Markle are fans. Tatcha was built by Taiwanese Vicky Tsai and…

    Dr Mark Hyman: Sleep deprivation = 1 pound increase per week

    Unlike most of the podcasts, Dr. Mark Hyman records 10-minutes podcasts and videos with bite-sized content on health. In this episode, 3 doctors discuss how stress influences our behaviour and decision making. We all know that. But here’s another reminder. They discuss that being deprived from sleep will cause impulsive decision making, which in its turn will make you crave carbs and…

    A path to optimal quality of life: meaningful relationships

    I’ve been unknowingly advocating this already. But after listening to Jay Shetty’s latest podcast with Robert Waldinger, I was relieved to objectively confirm that time with friends is definitely time well invested.  Waldinger, a Harvard professor, studied 724 men for 75 years and concluded that of course smoking is bad for health and exercise is good but what matters and contribute most to the overall…

    I boss, you boss, we boss

    I’ve been listening to “How I built this” that gives insights, anecdotes and founder stories. Everyone knows the Uber, Airbnb and Toms but although they’re definitely aspirational, it just hits closer to home when I hear a woman talk about building out her passion and grinding her way thru success. So this week I present to…

But here are some lists I think that might be useful/fun for you too: To IG follow For some genuine + positive+energy For female entrepreneurial inspo To…
