A Weekly Slice of Life After Graduation.

Join us for free and get our 5-minute newsletter where we share unfiltered stories about life and career fulfillment.

Here’s What You Can Expect:

🫶 We share the journeys of people like you — how they felt, what they did, and where they are now. The good and the bad (and the weird).

💼 We cover career fulfillment and post-grad life from a Gen Z perspective — where we call things as we see it.

🤑 We write about side hustles, starting a business, and making passive income — because how the hell else are we going to afford to retire?

Who Are We For?

GradSimple is born from the shared blood, sweat, and tears of people who’ve attended college, are hungry for more out of life, but are still figuring things out. We’re not for everyone, but if any of these scenarios sound like you, you’ll think we’re awesome:

  • ✏️You’ve graduated, and your life plan is more of a doodle than a blueprint.
  • 💡You’re hunting for inspiration on what to do with your life or career (because “professional Netflix watcher” isn’t hiring).
  • 📖You love hearing the real, unfiltered stories of fellow grads figuring out how to adult.

If any of this has you saying, “Yup, that’s me,” then you should subscribe! We’ve got your back.

Meet The Faces Behind GradSimple

Hey, we’re Tyler and Grace! We graduated from the University of British Columbia in 2021, and since then, we’ve done a lot of different things. We know the feeling of getting handed your diploma and not knowing what to do next. It’s intimidating, lonely, and scary. It somehow feels like everyone around you has their sh*t together. Trust us, they don’t. We don’t either, in a lot of ways.

We’re in the pursuit of fulfillment, and still kinda working out what that means for us.

Whether it’s starting an e-commerce business selling knick-knacks that raked in $27,000 in 3 months, growing a Discord community to over 1,500 members, making a living by flipping JPEGs for six figures, selling research reports, freelancing as moderators, analysts, advisors, and day trading stocks – you name it. It’s checked off our list.

Oh, and we’ve done all of this while still working a 9-to-5.

We aim to share the stories of people like you: those who’ve (kinda) figured things out, those who haven’t, and those who don’t care to. All in the pursuit of making you feel just a little bit better about where you’re at.

what’s Your Story?

Not every story has to be a blockbuster. Sometimes, the most ordinary experiences are the most meaningful. We love stories of all kinds—quirky, inspirational, or downright weird.
