The post below is in reference to this post about ticket reselling.
Since last week, I’ve been spinning out because of this whole Travis Scott ticket reselling fiasco. Like, literally been saying some variation of, “Harlan, what did you DO?”
Well, today I did some 0% APR balance transfers and cashed out some stock (which I have never done before in my life) to take some pressure off the situation.
Somewhere in there, I realized how fortunate I am to have financial tools that can get me out of a mess—including the one I made for myself.
Or maybe I’m just intellectualizing the whole thing to feel better about something that was profoundly dumb and risky.
Either way, I’ve learned a lot about my risk tolerance, evolving money philosophies, and how I’ve shifted to a place of security. Yes, security. Even after all that.
