Sunday is for Sharing is a weekly roundup of my favorite articles, videos, and podcasts I read, viewed, and listened to over the past week.
This week features an interview with Tim Ferriss on how to overcome self-doubt, an article by a 19-year-old girl on how to build a marketable skillset without going to college, and much more. Enjoy!

“The key to obtaining the optimal cost of living in Panama is that you need to be willing to take on a lot of the Panamanian life. If you eat, drink, and play like a Panamanian, you’ll enjoy the low costs that come along with it.”

“Find someone willing to pay you at least $1 to do something. Repeat. Congratulations. You’ve just finished your internship. You’re a freelancer. You’re now in business. The rest is failing forward.”
via Lydia Hallie
“Most companies don’t care if you have a nice paper saying that you studied programming at college: people care that you can show that your coding skills are good, and that you love to code.”

“I must say that my best financial investment has most certainly been a $620 plane ticket out of America.”
“I thought having more money would make things easier, but I learned that no matter the budget, you never have enough money.”
My Favorite Podcast
James Altucher sits down with Tim Ferriss to discuss Tim’s new book “Tribe of Mentors” (which I’m extremely excited to get my hands on) and asks Tim some hard-hitting questions about how he has overcome self-doubt and even self-hate to achieve success.
This podcast is filled with wonderful life advice and I recommend giving it a listen.
That’s all for this week, thanks for reading 🙂
