Treat your personal life like a company and clearly understand:
1) Your revenue (income), what you are bringing in through work, side hustle etc. How much it fluctuates vs consistent it is.
2) Your cost (expenses), how much you are spending daily, monthly on food, transportation (car), housing/rent etc.

After that baseline, you can try to see what is “fixed” and what can change, through different actions or habits, like cooking at home more vs eating out. For income side, think what you are good at, can do and what the market will pay for. It may require some seed capital to build so you may need to get a loan for it

Where are you looking for housing? In a city?

Are ARK funds' inflows propping up the underlying stocks prices?

If the fund takes in a billion in the next week, they'll deploy somewhere around 6% of that into PACB to stay on % target. $60 million gets invested over the month into PACB. Volume in PACB in December was 34.2m shares at ~$30 for a total of 1 billion volume. ARKG took in over 400m in one day during December...
