Wise Bread Five Year Anniversary Blowout

I just returned home from Mas Malo in downtown LA, where Wise Bread celebrated their five year anniversary. It was a wonderful gathering of family, friends, partners, and bloggers. The tacos were mouth watering and the venue was amazing. We were lead downstairs to a private party room. Can anyone say velvet rope? I can see why they were voted Best New Restaurant in the Downtown News.

I just survived my first year. It is mind boggling to think Will Chen, Lynn Truong, and Greg Go are still running strong after five years in the game. They are still passionately spreading their message of “living large on a small budget” through their community and books.

Final Thoughts

I will leave you with some nuggets of wisdom from Greg and David of MoneyNing. I asked them both, “What is your secret for making it to five years?” Greg said, “Just keep on going. Even if you can’t see the light at the end of the tunnel, just keep on going.” David chimed in by saying, “Keep going. Find what works for you and keep doing it. If you made it past eight months, you’re in it for the long haul.” Timely advice from both as Ramit Sethi and Pat Flynn Almost Killed Buck Inspire. Whether you are blogging, paying down a mountain of debt, or trying to get out of the rat race, don’t take my word for it, you owe it to yourself to listen to five year veterans, Wise Bread and MoneyNing.

Happy Five Year Anniversary Wise Bread and here’s to many more!

    Good to see you are still learning! Stick to a plan and monitor your progress. Time goes faster than you realize and I speak from experience!

  3. I really do admire the realistic contemporary message that WB offers. It’s easy to see why they have broad appeal.

    Didnt realize you were in the LA area too! Wish I could have made it!

  5. You made it! Cool! Wish I could have been there.
    I agree about the keep going part. Sometime you just have to put your head down and bull your way through. 🙂

  6. Thanks for letting us know. As to this blogging thing (as I still call it trying to pretend it is not THAT important) it is a bit like what Jack Karouak said about being a writer: ‘Persist. Persist with the persistence of a drug addict.’

    I am officially jealous (with white friendly not black self-destructive jealousy)! I wish I could make it. After all Salt Lake is not that far from LA, right? So good to know that you made it. You are quite a… hmmm… social butterfly this year. 🙂 Did you have your business cards with you? 🙂

    • Buck Inspire says:

      White friendly jealousy is good, haha! I’m normally not the social butterfly, but you heard of the saying, get out of your comfort zone? I’m trying to eliminate my comfort zone! I did have my business cards, but didn’t bust them out as it was a Wise Bread function. Didn’t want to overstep my welcome. Well if I am ever in Salt Lake I expect to big warm welcome from you and Beaker!

  9. Great you made it. I remember getting their invite on yakezie forum. I am a regular reader of WB and sure it would have been nice to met them in person. So what’s your biggest learning, apart from keep going regardless of outcome?

    • Buck Inspire says:

      Thanks SB! Make sure you are passionate about what you are doing and share your success with friends and family. The party was mostly friends and family with a few bloggers and partners to round it out!
