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.

Trust You!

GOOOOD MORNING BEAUTIFUL PEOPLE!!!!!

 

 

As always, I hope all is well and you are following the road less traveled, but the one that you feel in your heart belongs to you. Like I’ve said may times before; “You aren’t living unless you’re living a life of freedom and remain to be uninhabited by your surroundings.

Too many times we have been stopped from doing things we really have wanted to do because we were listening to the opinions of others. Sometimes it’s good to listen to others, but sometimes it’s not.

Let Your Brain Take the Road Less Traveled - The Human FactorMy whole life has been dictated by others. Mainly because I was afraid to take accountability for the things I chose. Cause this way I could sometimes do what I wanted, because someone suggested it and not get blamed for the outcome. But the only thing with that is sometimes people choose what you would have chosen, then other times they don’t. When that happens you’re focused with making the decision whether you are going to do what they suggest, or are you going to follow your own mind and do what you want to do anyway?

That’s why I’ve learned to follow my own advise. Don’t misunderstand me, I still ask people their opinion; but I don’t fall for the peer pressure of doing something because someone told me too. 

It’s gonna be a struggle at first, but you’ll be so happy once you learn to trust yourself. Cause what happens when you finally start following your own mind is; you stop being a follower and become a leader. In becoming a leader you also unlock you mind and finally give yourself the permission to be you, unapologetically. That is when the true beauty of living comes in to play.

 

Question of the day:What is something you’ve always wanted to do but haven’t because of the opinions of others?
