Helping nerdy entrepreneurs be themselves, in life and in business.

Screw convention and expectations. Create the life and the business that you want.

My name is Patrick Griffith, and I’m a nerdy entrepreneur just like you. Unless you’re not. Which is acceptable.

I write words about doing things your own way. In life (health, happiness, mindfulness, minimalism, etc). And in business (making websites, marketing, automation, etc).

My articles are written based on demand. I’ll write my next one as soon as - more people join Demand Different (my newsletter). It’ll be sent to subscribers a full month before being posted here.

pickmonitor.com I used to bet on sports. I don’t anymore. It no longer interests me. But I still keep this site because it provides certain programmatic challenges that are fun as shit to tackle. And also, because money. Perhaps mostly because money.
