What do you want to know?

Really, pause and think:

What do you want to know?

How to gain muscle, or lose fat? How to have more money? How to adventure more? How to feel happier, less stressed, with a greater sense of well-being? How to work less? Live longer?

My name is Dolan Ingraham.

I’m a self-optimization and improvement addict who has:

  • Taught myself from scratch how to profitably invest (earning an annualized return of ~24%), and released a course on the subject
  • Learned how to travel the country on a shoestring budget while staying in amazing hotels
  • Figured out how to enjoyably lose 10 pounds of fat in 30 days (and reduce my cholesterol by 70 points)

From $74 round-trip flights to cities I’ve always wanted to visit (staying in luxurious hotels that I paid about $100 total for), to aggressive yet calculated stock investments, to adventures in fasting and black coffee, I’m constantly learning, experimenting, and self optimizing to have the best life possible.

And if it sounds like I’m bragging, it’s because I’m neglecting to mention all then numerous mistakes, failed attempts, and botched experiments of which, there have been many in favor of the few that might be helpful to you.

My hope is that ultimately, maybe you’ll find some of my stories and tips not only entertaining, but useful. And maybe this site can help improve your own life in some way.



Don’t miss out on the latest tips and tricks.
