#BullCon14: Remember to pack your wine wardrobe

It’s [...]

Bullish Q&A: How do I pull myself out of this godforsaken hole?

I’m nearly 26 years old, still living at home with my dad. I spent a few semesters at college, but never even finished an associates degree. I’m currently working a slightly above minimum wage job, behind a coffee and juice bar at a grocery store. I’m tired of busting my ass, and having nothing to [...]

#BullCon14: Welcome to the Surfcomber Hotel

Bullish returns to the Surfcomber for the second year running!

Hey, I live in New York; we don’t know a lot about [...]

How to Get Paid (Doing Work That Doesn’t Pay Well)

Namaste, Jen! In the interests of my long-term health, doing what I love, and creating an extra income stream / side-career, I’m starting yoga teacher training.

Bullish Q&A: Why Get Married? What’s the Damn Point?

I did this. I also skipped: bridesmaids, bridal shower, bachelorette party, bouquet tossing, picking special colors. We ended up having a fairly traditional venue (not a bar, park, etc.) mostly because a lot of our guests were old and needed decent bathrooms. The groom made origami centerpieces.  What’s the point of marriage for modern, secular people?
