MoneyLemma launched in January 2021. I’m genuinely amazed that anybody took the time to read what I wrote, educate me, and share their stories. Nobody has even doxxed me, drudged up my shameful past, and demand I be held accountable.
Meeting interesting, smart people in different walks of life has been the best part of this. In that spirit, here is a recap of some of MoneyLemma’s more popular posts and some of the cool people I met through them.
While we are on the topic of cool people & projects: I’d like to recommend Refind: The Essence of the Web. Refind helps thoughtful readers find thoughtful writers. They have a learning algorithm that suggests authors based on what you like to read. Plus, Refind has shared MoneyLemma so you know it’s good.

Jason, from Company Insights, is a successful startup guy whose latest venture is the Company Insights YouTube channel. He creates great business breakdowns.

This shit is bananas (link)

Through this post I connected with 5 AM Joel from Budgets are Sexy. He’s an Australian financial independence guru who has taken a completely unique path in life.
How is a Unicorn Made? (link)
I forgot all about this one until I was scrolling through my own posts. As such, I had a chance to read my writing as it were someone else’s. Conclusion: I’m not as funny as I think I am. Mr. Zaye from 100k to 1m, who runs like five businesses, may get into the unicorn club one day.
MoneyLemma’s New Year Resolution
Make better memes. Does anyone not have that at the top of their resolution list? It’s the most important skill a person can have for the next decade. Why are we still teaching cursive in elementary school? Just teach memes.
See you all next year!
