Question?

Good Morning !!!!

As always I hope everyone is doing well. I’ma tell you one thing; I feel so much better then I’ve been feeling in the last couple of weeks! I guess you could say my body and mind needed the rest. I feel a little guilty saying that, because we’ve only been back in school for about 3 months. I shouldn’t feel bad about saying that though. I’m sure there are a lot of  people just as grateful for this break as I am. There’s probably teachers out there already planning their Summer vacation.

Well… Like I told you all before there’re going to be some things I’m going to be working on bringing to life. First I need your input.

First is:

Which play should I work on producing first?

  • Desire- A tale of  a very gullible girl, who falls in love with someone who appears will never love her back. Not realizing everything she thought she knew was a lie and sh*t was gonna hit the fan a lot sooner than she ever expected.

Or

  • Loyalty: Love, Lies & Betrayal- My first self published book. A tale of  a homosexual couple who has problems just like anyone else. Centered around Jacoby who is an owner of a multimillion dollar record company. But has failed to realize everything he has is due to his loving somewhat crazy husband Stacy. Things start taking a turn for the the worst when Stacy gets wind of just how giving and generous Jacoby has been and has continued to be to his female counter parts.

If you’re interested in either book, minimal entries to Desire can be found here on  ShadsShortStories.com or if you would like to read Loyalty: Love, Lies & Betrayal in its entirety grab a copy @Amazon.com/Loyalty Love Lies & Betrayal.

One more thing; if you’re looking for something to give that special lady in your life and not exactly sure what to get. Give  her a basket of Lulu’s Lavish Lathers. Soap that caters to you!

As Always

Branding for Growth

Good Morning!!!!

I Am My Brand: How to Build Your Brand Without Apology: Springer ...At the moment I’m learning different things I can use to add to my brand. As a result of trying to grasp more knowledge on marketing I got this book by Kubi Springer. So far it is proving to be a really great read/ workbook.

I’ve learned, many things we don’t think twice about when we see a logo makes it recognizable when we see it again. Also that every color you decide to use for your Logo plays a huge part in how it’s perceived. Also that emotive words are key factors in getting potential customers to associate a feeling with your brand. Because how your customer feels is the main concern when marketing a business.

I’m hoping by reading up on marketing that it will help me to make some sales. To be honest I know what woud help me make sale. The only thing is I hate being on camera and doing YouTube I don’t really have to be on camera, but I would have to produce content and by producing content that will help me to gain mor followers and help people see how relatable I am. I’m just extremly camera shy.

I’ll provide more once I know more. Hope this was helpful for those who are starting a new business.

How it’s gonna be…..

Good Morning!

 

I feel a little bit better today. Not much has changed but the way I feel. I don’t feel as irritated and angry. Sometimes my emotions get the best of me. I’ve realized it’s good to hold your true emotions back sometime.

Well any, there is so much to be grateful for. Sometimes the ways of the world get in the way. You don’t realize how blessed you are because you have something in your life blocking you form that realization. That was me yesterday. I just felt inconvenienced and wanted to shut myself off from the world. I have to admit though, that is me on an everyday basis. Not because I don’t like people, mainly because I want to protect my energy.

People that I’ve grown up with and even my mother thinks I’m a little too sensitive because I take on other people’s problems as my own. I’m sorry! I don’t know how else to be. I’ve always internalized all problems, even if they weren’t mine. I understand that is something I need to work on. That is one of the main reasons I can’t be around certain people; because they will drain me of my energy. Whether you realize it or not it takes a lot of energy to really care about the next person’s problems.

At times I felt that I was an emotional dumping ground. That’s why I’m trying to prepare myself for when I move in with my mom. I know that I’m not going to be able to be home too often because she likes to invite people over; then wants me to come out and greet those people. She just doesn’t understand how uncomfortable that is for me.

Some times I get into moods where I don’t want to talk to anyone. When I’m around her, I have to talk to the people around her; if I don’t, I feel regretful of not saying anything to the other person, because I’m stuck thinking about the way I made them feel because I didn’t acknowledge them.

To be honest it’s a viscous cycle. That’s one of the main reasons I’m a person that like to stay to myself. The only time you’ll see me around other people is when I have to be or when it’s people I know really well and I consider them my friend. Not that I don’t have times when I can talk to complete strangers, because I can also do that; and have lovely conversations with them. I just believe over time I’ve allowed my shyness to dictate the way I live my life.

I have tried working on that, and I’m gonna to continue to work on that. The bad thing about being shy is never feeling free enough to do what you feel, and it’s not good in business either. That is another reason I need to work on getting passed this stage.

Do you know anyone who has this problem? And if that person is you, how are you helping yourself through this process?

Control Your Future…

Good Afternoon!!

There are so many things that are changing around me. There are also so many trials I have and am going through. With in the next two to three weeks I have to get my stuff together and prepare to move. The life I’ve grown accustom to will have to be shifted a little, because I’m doing what most entrepreneurs do when they’re trying to get their selves off the ground; moving in with my parent.

You have to be a little uncomfortable during the process. I knew it was gonna be hard work. I can’t say that I would want it any other way. As most know, I never wanted to work for someone else’s company. I would always say that I’m gonna have my own business. Even then I knew I did not like taking orders.

As I got older I started to find myself. It took me a lot longer than most, but I’m happy the process has finally took place. I knew I wanted to provide something to the public, but for the longest time I couldn’t figure out what that was. I new I wanted it to be either smell or for skin.

I thought for a long time about making a perfume. Then I thought who is going to buy this? No one knows me! Then also about the money that would have to go into the process of making it. Then I thought about creating paid webinars. That only came to mind because other bloggers said that is one of the only ways to make money.

One thing’s for certain, I become physically debilitated some days when having to work with others. See I have extremely bad anxiety; I’m always letting my thoughts run away from me. In my case that isn’t a good thing, because I have the tendency to over think and take offence when there’s no reason too.

But now I have finally figured out what type of business I would like to have. As you may have seen, I chose skin care. What I’ve started with are all natural soaps. Since I’ve started using my own soap my skin has become extremely smooth and my skin tone has evened out a whole lot!

Side note: I remember being at work with my pre-k babies and they would always rub my arms. I thought it was weird. I had no idea why they always did that. That wasn’t the only thing, they also loved to smell my skin. As we all know, children do not lie. I later on realized they did this because they liked the way I smelled and because I have extremely smooth skin; and I owe that to my natural artisan soaps.

I have always been obsessed with having smooth, even toned, healthy skin. I think I found my calling. I love what I do. Now the test is getting others to believe in me too.

These blogs are for me, but they’re also for you. I never want to stop motivating you to reach for your dreams. If it’s something you want to do, all you have to do is put in the effort.
