Time is the Most Valuable Resource: How I Plan to Use Mine More Wisely

  Time is the most valuable resource.  This never crossed my mind as a child, when I was in high school, or even in my early twenties. I didn’t consider the value of time until I had a full-time job and other responsibilities. It was the fleeting hours between when I got off work, got stuck…

Happiness is a Choice Part II

There are hundreds of thousands of searches on the internet every month for the phrase “how to be happy“. I know this because a few years ago, I was on the brink of starting an inspirational blog with two of my friends and one evening I found myself digging through the annals of Google’s keyword…

To Be Able to Create is To Be Able to Have Infinite Possibilities

  I still haven’t finished my doodle from the other night. It is supposed to be a custom design for a merch line I’m starting (side project) but I’m stuck. I used to be good at drawing but now I’m just rusty. It’s like that side of my artistic abilities has evaporated into thin air. Save…

Why My Happiness Must Come From Within

Relationships. I used to seek out happiness in relationships. If things were good, I was on cloud nine. If things were bad, my whole world would come unhinged.

Looking for your Passion? It Might Not Be a Singular Thing

  Just as I was prepping for today’s podcast, I found myself doodling a picture in my notebook. I was trying to create a t-shirt graphic but I couldn’t quite get the design right. If I have time this evening, I’ll work on it some more. A few months ago, I bought a website domain…

My Plan to Value My Time Higher $$

At the moment I’m exchanging my hours for dollars 💰💰. I’m working on building a brand with my writing, podcasting and social media platforms and I also have a business with my sisters that is long overdue for an update.

Do What You Love and the Rest Will Fall Into Place

  My writing is always leading me somewhere, telling me something. Lately, I’ve started to listen. This might surprise you, but I’m not really sure why I started writing or more specifically why I chose to write every day. Sure, there were the surface reasons of “Writing is my strength” and “If I don’t write every day,…

My Brother Thinks College is Pointless Part II

  A few nights ago, I was chatting with my brother again. If you remember, he was having some qualms about college.  We were bouncing ideas back and forth about possible side hustles. Web design, dropshipping, graphic design, and online tutoring were a few things that came up. It was funny because while we were…

Motivation is Nice, But You Don’t Need It To Start

I’m not always motivated to write. In fact, yesterday, I sat down at my computer, listened to half a YouTube music playlist, was on the verge of starting and decided, “Wait, I need my green tea.” I went downstairs boiled the water, steeped the tea, went back upstairs, decided it was chilly and needed a…
