I usually eat lunch very late. Usually 2-3 pm or 4 pm if it is a busy day. My brunch is more like a mid day tea time.
I eat everything.
I live my life like the way I invest. I put my eggs in different baskets. I don't do no-carbs, no-sugar, no diary, wheat-free, raw diets etc.The scientists are contradicting each other. I don't know who is right, who is wrong. I eat a balanced diet. There is always a good in the bad and bad in the good. Eating everything is the safest strategy. And if I am wrong, at least I am happy. Self love is the best type of love.
It is better be happy and live a better life than suffering.
I'm so soft and round, no sharp edges anywhere. I think I look wonderful, even though my legs are a little short.
I have a habit to chat with cab drivers whenever I take one. And I have never heard a negative comment from Uber drivers. They told me how
Uber opens more doors for them. It allows them to get more customers and make more money to feed their children. They shared with me stories about their children and their dreams.
I know a single mom who drives Uber to feed her children during difficult time. Companies like Uber create new opportunities that didn't exist a few years ago. They open a market, cut the middlemen and connect consumers and providers. Uber model allows people to choose themselves and be their own bosses.
My friend wouldn't have the opportunity to make extra money to buy milk and diaper for her children without the sharing economy trend.
Uber is a great example of how the world should work instead of trying to optimize the old broken industry. They do things better and create new opportunities.
The other day, I didn't have money on me. I could order a car with Uber and food without a penny on me. All these Uber-inspired companies make my life easier.
Matt Briton talked about how to build your brand in today's youth-driven culture in his Amazon Best Seller book, YouthNation. Uberization was one of the topics. Every day, there are more Uber-inspired business. Soon we will have Uberization of Everything.

"All the hard work at Harvard is done by the admissions officers who anoint an already-proven hypercompetitive elite. If that weren’t true — if superior instruction could explain the value of college — then why not franchise the Ivy League? Why not let more students benefit? It will never happen because the top U.S. colleges draw their mystique from zero-sum competition.
Of course, you can’t become successful just by dropping out of college. But you can’t become successful just by going to college, either, or by following any formula. Bill Gates, Steve Jobs and Mark Zuckerberg aren’t famous because of the similar ways in which they left school. We know their names because of what each of them did differently from everybody else.
A Reformation is coming, and its message will be the same as it was 500 years ago: Don’t outsource your future to a big institution. You need to figure it out for yourself."
This is one of the reasons why Tinder is full of tiger, Machu Picchu and shirtless selfie photos. We want to tell a stories through photos. We want people to believe our lives are interesting. We did it for the Internet.
Late entry for Day 4 of #CreateLuv 31 day photo challenge, hosted by ->>Something you can't live without <<
I gave some thoughts. First I thought it was books. I love books since I was a little child. I have always asked for books if someone wants to buy me a present.
It was my first love.
But I had a second thought, maybe writing is something I cannot live without. Writing is the way for me to spread my ideas and vision. It is the bridge connecting me with the outside world.
It hit me...the Internet. I owe everything I have today to the Internet. I wouldn't have my career and friends without it.
Then I realize they have one thing in common. KNOWLEDGE.
Knowledge is the most powerful thing in the world if you know to leverage it. My mother always tells me to use my pen to change the world. Everything starts with knowledge.
Learn. Unlearn. Relearn.
Spring used to make me sad. It reminds me of the last few lines of one of my favorite poems.
"Men laugh at my folly in burying fallen flowers,
But who will bury me when dead I lie?
See, when spring draws to a close and flowers fall,
This is the season when beauty must ebb and fade;
The day that spring takes wing and beauty fades
Who will care for the fallen blossom or dead maid?"
Women is just like flowers. Chinese has a famous idiom.
Beautiful flowers are soon picked.
A beautiful girl often has an unfortunate life.
Vietnamese often say "hồng nhan bạc mệnh"
We can sit there looking pretty and wait for destiny. Or we can go out, crush destiny into pieces and create our own.
If beauty is a curse, personal drive and intelligence are the antidote.
The only person who can stop you is yourself.
We are so excited to introduce a fun little project called the #createluv photo challenge.

Hi, I’m CamMi Pham ( @cammipham). I am a digital strategist/social media marketing consultant by day, and personal development blogger by night. I am the host of relationship building chat (#RBchat – Tuesday at 9 pm ET) and User Generated Content Marketing Chat (#UGCchat – Thursday at 2 pm ET).
If you want to know more about me, this is my life story.I was born into old money, grew up with the new money, and have no money.
That line pretty much sums up my life.
I was born into a family that used to have everything: fame, power and wealth , but at the wrong time. We had the old money status without the benefit. But if I can go back in time, I wouldn’t change a thing. I am proud being a member of this family, rich or poor. People can take away almost everything my ancestor left. Fame can fade. Power can move from one hand to another. Wealth can be stolen. But they left knowledge and class. They are in our blood, and will always be there.
After US lifted the trade embargo against Vietnam, my parents worked hard to rebuild the legacy. I was very lucky to grew up among the elite. I went to the best school, ate the best food, wore the best clothes. Everybody were nouveau riche because before that nobody had money. At that time I thought life was good. I was wrong.
Like any perfect fairy tale story, it did not last long. My father was falsely accused of a crime he did not commit. It didn’t take long for his business to fall apart. Building a business in Vietnam is like having a beautiful sand castle, it never lasts. Many years later, my father won the law suit but he lost everything. Everyone who used to be friends and family acted like they didn’t even know us.When you have money, your friends know who you are. When you have no money, you know who your friends are.
My mother wanted to go back to the Western world and rebuild our lives. My father wanted to rebuild his legacy where he lost it. Just like a famous Vietnamese legend, my mother took my litter sister and me to the North, Canada where her family lives; my father took $1000 to the South and rebuilt his businesses.
“The illiterate of the twenty-first century will not be those who cannot read and write, but those who cannot learn, unlearn and relearn.” ~ Alvin Toffler
And today I am a little princess-turned-pauper who is working hard to build her own legacy with two hands and a brain. I had a very interesting childhood which made me who I am today. I have learned a lot of things then learn to unlearn them. That is life.
From all my experience, I learned 3 lessons
- The old money taught me “Making money is hard but keeping money is harder“ It is important to be financial independent because anything can happen tomorrow. Always live below your mean. Looking rich doesn’t mean you are rich. You can have the money but you may not have the education to manage wealth and maintain stabilities.
- The new money taught me “Life is too short to blend in.” It is easier to play safe and blend in, but great risk comes with great return.
- The no money taught me “We need a balance in life” Nothing is totally right or wrong. If you are not happy when you have no money, you won’t be happy when you have everything. Happiness is found within yourself.
