As a copywriter, a digital marketer, a content creator, a YouTube watcher, a Steve Jobs hater, and more. I find there’s nothing more annoying than a great experience that gets interrupted or interfered with by ads.
I know you know what I’m talking about, however, here are a few examples anyway…
(1) You’re listening to some awesome music on YouTube video and then–FUCK!!–some bullshit “get rich by reading books and worshipping my Lamborghini Guy” pops up with an advertisement in the middle of your favorite song.
Fuck you Lamborghini guy.
(2) You’re watching an awesome TV soap opera and Billy is about to tell Sally that he found out she was sleeping around when–AH FUCK!!–it cuts to a commercial about how to do your fucking chores with the latest breakthrough cleaning shit. These are chores you hate, chores like washing dishes, doing laundry, and cooking meals. The only reason why you’re wasting your life watching the TV was to escape from these G-d forsaken chores in the first place.
Fuck you Mr Unclean.
(3) You’re reading a really awesome article and then–HOLY FUCK!!–the entire site is splattered with sponsored content for celebrity bullshit and fuckery. Why the hell are sexy pictures of Jennifer Lawerence and a sketchy headline like “Jen gets pounded by…” showing on a tech blog? WTF!?
Fuck you celebrity mind rot.
O.K., I’m triggered. Are you triggered? Let’s try and chill out a little. Ready? Inhale. Hold it. 5… 4… 3… 2… 1… And, Exhale. Slowly. That’s it. Phew… Thank G-d we got that out of our system.
Look… I hate ads. You hate ads. Everyone hates ads.
And yes, even though I write ads to help my clients make money for their business, I only ever work with clients who are doing good or intend to do good to you, to me, and to the world we live in.
Ads aren’t bad, but they sure are a fucking nuisance when they interfere and interrupt with watching, reading, and listening to the content we love and enjoy.
So, if you came to this page and you actually spent time reading all this, I’d like to ask you to help me with a small donation to support this website.
I don’t want my website ever to be a place filled with ads to products or services I don’t support or wouldn’t use. Yes, I have some affiliate links, but these are to books I’ve read and recommend to you. Yes, I may occasionally get a bit of money, but it’s not as much as I could earn if I had 10,000 visitors per month and I joined an ad network that paid $0.01 per impression ($1000 per month) or $0.25 per click (I have no idea how to calculate this). I want this website to be a clean space where I can share the knowledge and wisdom from my life experiences. I’ve spent years traveling Asia by bicycle, living like a homeless person in Canada and abroad, struggling with first-world problems, living like a king in third-world countries, and hoping to make the world a better place.
If anything I write has been beneficial to you and you want to help me so I can spend more time writing stuff like this for you, here’s what to do…

To be honest, I’m not sure what the content I produce is worth to you. I’ll let you decide the way you want to show your support. It can be with as little or as much money as you want or no money at all. My website is free for you to enjoy and I really hope you gain something from the words I write and the content I create. But, if you do decide to support in a monetary way, here are a few milestones to ensure that your money gets more content from me (instead of wasting it all on sugar babies and cocaine):
MILESTONES ACHIEVE = BOLD & CROSSED OUT
$0 per month – start begging for money from people who enjoy my content
$500 per month – hire someone to help me produce a monthly YouTube video based on my content
$1000 per month – increase YouTube videos to a weekly schedule
$1500 per month – hire a social media manager to help with social media stuff
$3000 per month – hire a translator to convert my content into other languages and learn how to speak that language to share my content with the world
$5000 per month – start spending less time on big business projects and focus more time on providing awesome content for you
$1,000,000 per month – stop producing content, move to a third world country in SE Asia, go on a bender, bang hookers all day, then die from an STD within the year
THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT AND JOINING ME IN SAYING: “FUCK YOU ADS–STOP PISSING ME OFF WHILE I WASTE MY TIME ON YOUTUBE OR WHEN I TRY TO ENJOY JEF’S CONTENT!”
Every quarter I’ll update this page with the names of my supporters along with a comprehensive report on how their money has been used. I intend to operate this website with 100% transparency. So, to those who support with a donation of any size, I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
