So Here’s the Deal, I Can’t Quit 🙄

The day after I “quit” the daily writing challenge, I was sitting on the couch with a Star Wars movie playing in the background. I had just finished 5 hours of work but I felt like a loser. Part of me wanted to just go to sleep but the other part was like, “No. You…

Why I’m Careful When It Comes to the Idea of Entrepreneurship

In society, there’s a lot of pressure to conform to the 9-5 lifestyle but on the other side of things, there’s also pressure when pursuing the entrepreneurial route. At the end of last year, I was watching tons of YouTube videos which made entrepreneurship looked glamorous. Business owners were working 15 hour days, having multiple meetings,…

When Things Die as You Know Them, Be Ready for the Change

207 days of writing. Whew. This is the longest I’ve kept up with a  daily routine other than the obvious eating, showering, sleeping…you know general upkeep.

The Question I Ask When I Don’t Get the Results I Want

In elementary and middle school, I never studied for exams. Like many students at that age, I was able to get good grades with little effort. Freshman year of high school came and went and that was okay too. Sophomore year… all that luck ended. I had to crack open my textbooks and dig in.…

What Happened to the Business I Restarted?

  The last time I wrote about my business was nearly a month and a half ago. My sisters and I had ordered 710 headbands from China after which some unforeseen circumstances delayed the order.

Quitting is Easy but Overcoming Challenges is the Best Reward

During my sophomore year of high school, I ran track with one of my friends. I remember one practice in particular. She had run up and jumped over a hurdle for the first time, only to catch her foot on the top and then fall down in the process. She had been practicing for 30 or so minutes prior…

How to Be the Ultimate Winner in Life

People who win, know that they’re going to win from the start — or at least they’re mostly optimistic about achieving success than they are about failing. –Paul Scott Jr.  I’ve always known in my gut that I was meant to do something great.

Are You Crippled by Opportunity?

  Today, I already started allotting an extra 2-hour block in my day to income producing activities. This morning I had sat down with my notebook and laptop, entirely prepared to start calling businesses and get my feet wet. Too bad it was Sunday. Once I realized, I had to quickly rearrange my plans and…

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…
