I saw recently that Niklas Göke has a “What I’m Doing Now” page on his website. I wanted to do the same thing here on Medium.

Here’s who I am and what I’m working on in 2021. Follow Nik while you’re at it, too. 😃

About Me

I’m a traveler, blogger, vlogger…

Welcome back to my weekly newsletter here at the Post-Grad Survival Guide.

My goal is simple: To help you thrive in your 20’s, not survive. 💪

Maybe I should rename the pub to Post-Grad Surthrival Guide? Too weird? Okay, fair enough.

It felt like someone was blowing up a balloon right behind my eyebrows.

I get that feeling around 11 AM every day.

Hey fellow Post-Grads!

It’s Tom Kuegler here. Today is the start of something new for the Post-Grad Survival Guide 🤩. We’re launching a weekly newsletter about how to create an online business for 20-somethings.

Since I started this publication back in 2016, “Entrepreneurship” was always one of the five topics…

I’m not ashamed to say I wrote a post yesterday that got 40 views in the first 5 hours.

That’s abysmal for me.

It’s beyond abysmal.

I spent two hours writing that post to get crickets?

James Bond taught me a hell of a lot about love.

That’s crazy.

I mean, he’s a sexist character who only views women as objects, played once by Sean Connery, one of the most chauvinistic men who ever graced the big screen.
