It’s not about how much money you make, but it’s about how much you’re spending each month. It’s crucial to know where your money is going. Get to know your monthly income and expenses. Learn to budget.
If you want to save money for financial freedom or to create a emergency fund, you have to know what your monthly expenses are (I’ll cover this topic in different post)
Here’s a simple strategy I’m using to control my money flow. You can easily modify it to your taste, but keep in mind that Long term savings and Financial Freedom are 2 key points of the flow.
These are expenses like rent, car payment, insurance, etc. The expenses you can’t avoid. (Well, maybe health insurance 😂)
Long term savings
This will be your retirement savings. There’s an extra flow connected to this flow and that’s the Emergency savings. DON’T TOUCH IT WHEN IT’S NOT NEEDED!

The secret to living is giving ❤️ This is your way of offering help to those who need it. Helping a friend in need, donating to charity or any other ways of helping other people financially, gives a certain feeling of fulfillment that can’t be achieved in other ways.
Changing to UFT-8 encoding can be a pain when you’re doing it from a GUI like MySQL Workbench.
There’s always an easier way to do it with some basic SQL.
The utf8 in mySQL doesn’t actually create a real UTF8 database. It creates a proprietary subset. Real UTF8 in MySQL is called utf8mb4.
-- convert the data that already exists to the character set utf-8
ALTER TABLE <table> CONVERT TO CHARACTER SET utf8mb4 COLLATE utf8mb4_unicode_ci;
-- change the character set to utf-8
ALTER TABLE <table> DEFAULT CHARACTER SET utf8mb4 COLLATE utf8mb4_unicode_ci;
-- change specific columns
ALTER TABLE <table> CHANGE <column_name> <column_name> VARCHAR(100) CHARACTER SET utf8mb4 COLLATE utf8mb4_unicode_ci;
Hell yes! I’m tired of working for other people. I want to work with my awesome students on social projects, business projects, making innovative machinery, robotics, custom software that’ll change the world. I don’t want to be stuck in a 9-5 job. I don’t want to work until I’m 60 years old.
I want to live my life doing something I love and having my own business that supports that.
So I’ve decided to create my own business, a company. It’s gonna be awesome!
