If you have questions about anything or just want to learn a specific topic, Quora is the go-to site. I have seen Quorans asking how Drew Houston (DropBox founder) learned to hack operating systems and Barack Obama’s opinions about Iran leaders.



What makes it very interesting is that you can choose the topics you want to follow. I personally follow Lifehacks, Stocks, Backpacking and Learning New Things.

A personal finance blog who walks-the-talk. The author talks about his passive income investments and net worth. Financial Samurai is founded by Sam, a financial geek who was a millionaire before he turned 30.


He’s very transparent. In fact he shows his net worth and income from his real estate business. The author credibility is high. Unlike from other self-proclaimed financial gurus, he does what he teaches. And he’s a substantially rich guy.
