We wear labels on ourselves like labels on garments, and these labels tend to reflect our self-image and determine our self-esteem. Where do these labels come from? They may originate from remarks made about or to us and actions toward us by others from childhood until now. But we are always the one who sews them on. We put them on by how often we think of them and/or the emotion we attach to them.Read More »

My inbox has been crowded with a lot of traveling readers asking the same questions. Some people are worried and others are just confused. Why?
Well, if you’ve been travel hacking for a while, you know that a few things have changed recently. There’s a big 100,000 point offer, but a) it’s expensive, and b) a lot of people can’t get it. One of the main card issuers now has a “5/24” rule, meaning that you can’t get any new cards if you’ve applied for more than 4 in the past two years.

The time came for the interview and I logged into Skype with my headset. After a few minutes of small talk, the host pressed the record button and began with the usual question: “Tell our listeners a little about you… how did you get started?”
It’s a fair question. The only problem is that I’ve answered it over and over—and over and over. Whenever I have a book out, I do at least 50 podcast interviews and usually another 50 radio interviews. At least 30% of the time, this is the first question that’s asked.
When you tell the same story over and over, two things happen. First, you get really good at telling it. You know what to say and how to say it. Second, because you hear the same question and give more-or-less the same answer each time, you rarely deviate from the course.Read More »
