On the Journey to Following My Dreams

First Day of Facebook Ads Report

So last week, my friend and I started a dropshipping store. We picked our niche, uploaded all of our products to our store, signed up for all the social media sites, and edited our video ad. The only thing left was to customize our ad and run it. So we picked our target demographic of males…

Being Equally Intentional About Fun and Work

It’s almost time for “Venom” to start. This is the second time I find myself writing at the movie theater this year. Earlier I had a nice dinner and now it’s almost time to enjoy the show. Although I’ve been working hard lately, I’m trying to be equally intentional about also enjoying life. I don’t…

Back to Myself

I feel much more present lately. It’s 11:37 pm and I’m writing this post. This would have never happened earlier this year. I would have been stressed and worried about needing to write an awesome post. That definitely wasn’t happening in 15 minutes back then. I mean maybe I could have afforded to write a…

I Officially Have a Little Reader

  My 4 year old read two sentences today. I started teaching him two months ago using a giant book of 100 lessons and today is the 26th day we’ve actually practiced. I realized he was able to read when we reached the part of the lesson when it was time to read the short story.…

Today was Not Ad Day

Okay, so the Facebook ads didn’t quite happen today. I mentioned in yesterday’s post that my friend and I started a dropshipping “business”. Well, our site is up and as of last night’s post we had multiple products picked out. Today, I had to pick out 5 more and even with Chrome extensions like Jungle…

A New Project in the Works

The past three days, I’ve written quite a bit about Costa Rica. Today I decided to take a momentary break from that and hop on my blog to write about another project I’m working on. At the recommendation of a friend, I recently joined a Facebook group and started watching several videos about using Facebook ads…

Late Nights and Short Posts

Here we are, it’s past 11 again. I hope this doesn’t become a habit. I just returned from dropping a friend off to go barhopping. Earlier today I agreed to do this and as soon as it became close to the time to leave I wanted to bail out. But…I’m trying to get better at…

It’s Late, Why am I Writing?

Everyone always says boys are easy and less high maintenance then girls. I mean, I guess they are. My mom did take time to do my hair every morning before school but I still can’t believe I spent two hours cutting and washing my boys hair this morning. Then we ubered to the grocery store…
