So my new year's resolution was to do better in my finances, fitness, and overall wellness. And being a full-time office bug, I barely get time to get online and research stuff that can help me with my situation. It is not like the information is difficult to find, the internet is filled with information buried under misinformation. What do you do when you are lost? You ask for directions right..!!! But at the same time, you are also looking for ‘if the person really knows the direction’. Same thing I did. I decided to look for some gurus online. One for financial advice, One for fitness, and one for overall wellness. One seemed overpriced. And after spending 1000 bucks…

Et Voila!!!
Magic. I am missing 1000 bucks from my wallet. They all turned out to be bogus gurus.

The Finance guy was a little better with his philosophy, and the fitness guy served total nonsense and was pushing his course on how to get healthy. It was like I paid to watch a movie-length advertisement. And the most costly one the Wellness guru turned out to be MLM guys. (Why God??? Why???). Looks like my new year’s resolution is to keep spending on things that don't add any value to my life and make these jokers rich.

By now I think you have an idea of where this is going.
Ok now without spewing any more misery. Let's get to the contest.
