About Aure's Notes

Hey, I’m Auré, a 20-something writer from Belgium.

I started this website with the desire to tell people about the things I wish I knew when I was younger. 

It has now transformed into my personal Wikipedia where I curate and share everything valuable I learn every day.

Solve Your Problems

Life is simple. You don’t need more than money and good relationships to be happy (and health).


I grew up wanting to become a comedian then quit at 23 years-old when I realized it wasn’t for me. After a few years of soul-searching, I reinvented myself as a marketer and online writer when I built my first blog in February 2020. I have been writing online since then. 

Find below my best articles.

I have also invented the terms “relational determinism“, which promotes the idea that our relationships (friends, parents, partners, but also to animals, the environment, God(s), etc) determine, for the most part, the course of our lives.

And I invented the term “progradiction” which is defined as “the compulsion of moving forward in life”.

This blog is free and ad-free.

What to Expect Out of Aure's Notes

  1. No ads
  2. Quality over everything else: I only publish on the blog when it is worth publishing. For entertaining articles, check out my Medium. You can read my best Medium articles for free when you subscribe to my newsletter. 
  3. Transparency and honesty: All opinions are genuine and honest. That doesn’t mean I will not change my mind in the future. No one paid me to write any of the things I am writing. 
Also, this website is primarily addressed to a European audience. Everyone can read Aure’s Notes, but the blog is written from a European perspective, with everything it entails.

How to Use Aure's Notes

The section summaries contains summaries of books and videos. 

The section articles hosts all of the articles I have written.

The section resources hosts how-to guides as well as directories of websites, books, Youtube channels, newsletters, podcasts, people, and tips and tricks on various topics. 

The section Billionaire Series is a series of twenty one articles that analyze and deconstruct how billionaires started, grew, and scaled their companies. 

Finally, the podcast is me interviewing people that build stuff (entrepreneurs, scientists, creators, etc). 

Visual and Non-Visual Glossary

“<” means “is smaller/worse than”. Eg: Vegan diet < keto diet. Translation: vegan is worse than keto. 

“>” means “is bigger/better than”. 

“X” means “time” as in an equation. 3 X 5 = 15. 

I use the 00h00 to 23h59 European time system. 

5h00 is 5am, 15h00 is 3pm. 00h00 is midnight, and 12h00 is lunch time.

There are a series of terms I cannot write or I may be deplatformed by G-00-gL€. So I write them in a different way. 

That big country in the east that invented gun powder, for example, is written as Ch!n@. 

When something is important, I put it in bold or in giant quote. When something is capital, I put it in red (unless otherwise specified).

What's the Newsletter About?

The newsletter is sent every 1st day of the month, no matter what the day of the week is.

Here’s what you get when you sign up:

I keep it under two minutes because I don’t like long emails. And it’s free. And there are no ads. 


Check out the newsletters archives to see what it’s like first. 

Does the Website Make Money, and if Yes, How?

The website itself makes about €30/month thanks to a combination of affiliate marketing links and sales on Gumroad. 

What makes the most money is what I write on Medium, anywhere between $200 to $500 per month.

Finally, people have made donations on my Buy me a Coffee page. 

Why isn’t the website more monetized? 

Because its purpose has never been to earn money, but to learn SEO, content writing, copywriting, web design, email marketing, sales funnels, and product-making.

It has worked surprisingly great, reaching 20,000 viewers/month after only 19 months.

How Is the Website Built?

The website is built on WordPress. 

My hosting company is Hostinger and I’m very happy with it. 

The theme of the website is OceanWP (free) but I built the landing page with Elementor (free).

Why Don't I Show my Picture?

I got recognized after writing a viral article and I didn’t like it at all so no more pictures.
