You’ve heard the term “get rich slowly”? Today we’re inspiring you to jump in the race! Martinus Evans was told, that as a 300 pound-plus man, that he was too heavy to run marathons. His doctor laughed in his face. Today he’s been on the cover of Runners’ World, sponsored by Adidas, and leads one of the country’s largest running groups, the Slow AF Running Club. If you aren’t inspired to jump over your fear, lace up your budgeting shoes, and get moving toward your goals today, I don’t know how much more we can do to help! He’s that inspiring.
Plus, in our headline segment a recent blog post from a popular blogger rubbed us the wrong way. We’ll dive into why you should maybe think differently than THIS blogger AND differently than most other people.
Of course, we have an AMAZING TikTok minute that’ll show you how the world truly (probably) was built, throw the Haven Life line out to Jon who goes on and on about Doug’s mom…and more!
Deeper dives with curated links, topics, and discussions are in our newsletter, The 201, available at StackingBenjamins.com/201.
