Monetization

What’s up Everybody?!

I’m sitting here at work and decided, it’s been way to long since I’ve done a blog.

As always, I hope everyone one is in good spirits and life is treating you kind.

I guess you could say my theme for today is; monetization. Being truthful, this is something that constantly goes through my head. I guess you could say I think of it so much because I’m trying to find a way to leave the monotony of working a 9 to 5.

There are so many things I could monetize. My only problem is having a set plan that I can consistently implement. Currently I’m hoping to monetize my YouTube, Soap, Books, Podcasts and this blog.

I have been doing most of these things for years and still have not developed income from most of them. I’ve been told my lack of making it is do to lack of focus and consistently sticking with something. I see how that conclusion could be made. It’s the truth. I really have an extremely hard time sticking with one thing. I’ve been trying for a long time to find a way to fix that. I’ve gotten a little better with it, but at times still struggle.

If you have friends or family like me; you know the ones who always have the next best idea. Take it easy on them, they’re just trying to find their way. Most likely a 9 to 5 for them is like dying a little everyday. All they’re really in search of is that freedom that comes with being an entrepreneur. I know because that’s exactly why I do what I do.

Thank you so much for visiting my blog. I hope you enjoyed your time here.

Hard truth

Good morning!

I really hope everyone is having a great day.

Over the past week things have been hittin differently. I’m not sure if it was the car accident or my baby of 15 years passing or my car clunking out on me, that has me thinking of things a little different. Don’t get me wrong, I’ve always had a mindset of working for myself. But this is the first time I’m choosing to act on it.

For years I’ve tried things, hoping that it would be my ticket out of Monotony Ville. To no avail I’m still where I started from; to be honest even lower. Reason being, I’ve allowed life to happen to me and not for me.

What that means is, I haven’t taken planned disciplined action towards goals I wanted and still want to accomplish. That was my first major mistake. In doing that I did myself a diservice.

I knew what it would take for me to make it. I just didn’t exercise what I knew. This was mainly because I wanted to find a faster way to make it. As a result of trying and failing to find a quicker way to make money, I lost way more then I’ve gained.

The plan is to now apply what I’ve learned and turn my negatives ( inconsistencies) to the life I’ve been dreaming of. The true goal is to keep one target in mind and hit it. I can’t tell you how many quote unquote “great ideas” I’ve had. But because of inconsistency I never saw them through. Because I was looking for the financial reward before putting in the work needed to receive it.

If you’re like me-looking for a quick way to obtain financial freedom. Please slow down. Learn how to focus on one goal at a time. I find that is a better way to set and achieve your goals.

What’s your “Why?”

Good Morning!!!!

How is everyone on this Wonderful Wednesday?

Forgive me. I know that was a little cheesy. But I work in a school. What do you expect?

Well something that crosses my mind often is freedom. Freedom to be who you are, do what you want to do, go where you want to go.

I’m sure this is a major concern of mine, because everything I do I have to answer to someone. To be honest, I’m tired of it!

There have been many days I just want to go walk away from everything that isn’t making me happy.

Recently, I spoke to my therapist and she asked; “Why are you so concerned with making lots of money?” I told her; “The way I see it, money equates to freedom.”

For a long time I knew I wanted to be wealthy, but I was never clear on the Why. Now I understand why. This may not always be the answer others give. But freedom is definitely my why.

If you find yourself struggling with bouts of depression and they’re because of your current position, try finding and focusing on that thing that puts a spring in your step. For me that is financial freedom. That may not be what makes you happy and that is okay. We are all different.

Trust You

Good Morning!!! Hope everyone is well.

At the current moment there are so many things going through my mind. To be honest I do this to myself. Things could be so much easier if I just trusted myself.

Over the years there have been so many things I wanted to try; but didn’t go all the way with because of fear. Truth be told if fear wasn’t a major factor for me, I would’ve been some where in the world living it up. I truly believe that.

Instead I’m here working a job that isn’t my passion and wracking my brain trying to figure out a way to get out of the current situation I’m in.

See I’ve always had ideas. Some I acted on, but never gave my all too. The reason that is, is do to not really believing in myself. I understand that’s my downfall.

I’m in this situation because I’ve trusted other people’s advice more than I’ve trusted my own. This is another reason I feel lost. But I’m slowly making my way back.

I understand it’s going to take loads of work for me to get in the headspace I need to be in, in order to succeed at life. And I’m okay with that.

We all go through it at some point in our life. But what really matters is what you do to get out of it.

Dream Bigger than your current circumstance

Good Morning!!!! Hope all is well.

Let me open this with a question. Have you ever been at a point in life where you’ve felt at your lowest? It’s like you’re struggling to find air, peace, mental clarity, and your life path.

It’s like no matter how hard you push to get over the hump, the hump seems too steep to conquer.

What I’ve come to realize is; just let go. It’s the hardest thing to do. But once you do it, things will start flowing in your direction.

Have you ever noticed when you’re tense about something it seems as if everything is at a stand still? But when you let go and give it over to God (The Universe) things just start flowing organically.

The reason this happens is; you’re allowing for the energy to flow freely. You also understand what you feel you attract.

This is why it’s so important to stay positive, truly believe the words you’re saying and let negative feelings and thoughts go.

Rolling with the punches

Good Morning!!!

It’s Friday!!!! Yayyy!!! We’re finally at the end of the work week!! I’m thankful this week went by a heck of a lot faster than last week.

Today’s topic as you’ve seen is “Rolling with the punches”. I feel like that’s what I’m doing and I’m sure a lot of you are also doing this at the current moment. Many times as I’ve stated before, I don’t believe it’s fair. But then again, life isn’t fair. The only thing you can do is live life the best way you know how.

Over the past few weeks there have been a few people around me who have passed away. I just have to say 2020 has been a f***** up year for a lot of us. I just thank God that my family is doing fine and I still have breath in my body ( a chance to turn my health around).

This past week I was hit with even more negative information about myself. At first it broke me down because I wasn’t sure how I was going to fix this problem. But eventually I came up with a solution.

In other posts you’ve seen that I’ve been talking about my health and the sun. Also mentioning how weak and terrible I felt. I have to say that was my own fault, because I know and have known what I have to do to be healthy. My problem is, I let my feelings guide me when most times I’m supposed to us logic.

I have to say though; I’m not going to like the way I have to eat now. But the great thing about it is….. it’s going to prolong my life, and give me a better quality of it.

At first I didn’t realize how big of a role food plays in the way you think and feel. It even is a factor in how successful you become. That’s crazy! It makes sense, but it’s still crazy. Once I learned that, I started to realize why some children were going through school like it was nothing. The answer is their health habits and a few other factors. Of course you have some kids who are going to excel regardless. But for others health is a very major step.

If you feel differently or agree, I would love to hear about how good or bad health has affected your life. I know it has affected mine.

Good Morning!!!!

How many of you are into imagining the best possible outcome for your life?

I have to admit, this is something I do on the regular. Sometimes I just need to get away from reality. If I’m honest I couldn’t tell you what I want to do with my life. The only thing I know is I want to be comfortable and taken care of. I’m sure that’s what most of us want. Also to be inwardly happy.

It’s definitely a task to find true happiness. You know, the kind that comes from your own approval and no one else’s? This is what I someday hope to achieve.

Now all I have to do is learn to be me 100% of th e time. That’s a task in itself.

If you’ve enjoyed this post and can relate, I would love to hear your stories.

How do you find inner peace?

Good Morning

What’s on my mind this morning?……

Well for starters: Why is life easy for some but hard for others?

Well I’m sure I know what a lot of you are going to say….. CHOICES. I understand that and all. But why does it seem some of our choices are easier to make than others.

For example my choice is to go to work or choose not to go to work. As a result I wouldn’t get paid. Meaning I will have less than I already have.

The other thing is I could choose to go work for a company I know will pay me more then I currently earn. Then at least my money situation would be taken care of.

Many people like to say money shouldn’t be your main focus. You should let it flow freely. That’s easy to say when you have it. As for the rest of us it’s not so easy.

I really just need answers and a way out of this boring monotonous way of being.

If you know how please leave a comment. It would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for reading!! Have a lovely productive day!!

Work

Good Morning!!

Why is it when you style is comfort people believe you have no money for clothes. It seems if you dress comfortably and for the job, you are looked down upon because you choose not to wear your Sunday’s best to work?

Especially with what I do. I work with Pre-k. As most of us know they can be a bit messy. Not to mention having to changing poopy diapers or clothes because the baby had an accident. In my mind there’s just NO reason to wear nice clothes at this point.

If you disagree please leave a comment. Also what should I tell the people who believe I need a hand out because of the way I dress?

Just to give you a little insight: I usually wear loose fitting jeans or pants, work shirts, or a loose fitting shirt. I wear loose fitting clothes so I can move around with the babies. It would be uncomfortable if I had to wear a fitted shirt and paints and do as much movement as I’m required to do.

Also if you can relate I would love to hear some of your stories. So please drop them in the comment section.

Thanks so much for reading!! Have a beautiful day
