Motivation: Kick Start

As I kick start my own mini business I realized you cannot rely on others to push your movement in the beginning. And that is ok it’s your responsibility to motivate yourself in this type of business. You can’t expect others to just hop on the bandwagon right from the jump.

How do they know you’re really passion it about it? How do they know you’re good at what you’re trying to sell? Well they don’t.

But don’t forget all the people who do. All the people who have helped you to find your purpose.

For those who don’t….

Through the hustle, your determination, and your passion people will start to see that you actually believe in what you’re doing.

And when that happens, when they start believing in you that’s when you succeed.

HELP: How to get out of being “cheap” labor?

I realized in my early 20s I would often criticize younger me. Now that I’m in my 30s I wish I could find younger me. I never cared what others thought ever. I always stood up for those who had a tough time standing up for themselves. Maybe it’s because the consequences for being bold, outspoken and just plan not giving a fuck were not as life altering as it would be now. I have a family to take care of and they rely on my income as part of our survival. I guess the tricky part is sitting back and watching all the bullshit unfold knowing the more you poke at the unethical the more backlash it will be for you. With that being said how do you stand up for yourself in the professional world without it backfiring on you? I want to have the confidence of not giving AF as I did when I was younger for the right purposes but the consequences are unknown.

I’m cheap labor at my job. With the experience and education I have I bring more to the table than just entry level assistant. But how do I move forward when those who make the decisions of moving me forward benefit greatly from my cheap labor? HELP!

7 Wonders of the World: Chichen Itza (Yucatan Peninsula, Mexico)

My husband Kyle and I decided to do one excursion on our honeymoon while we were in Mexico. We decided to go to one of the Seven Wonders of the World Chichen Itza (Yucatan Peninsula, Mexico). It did not disappoint! We were warned that the air is so heavy and hot people routinely faint. Lucky for us it was extremely cloudy that day. Unfortunately, it was too cloudy to see the snake. Yes, I said snake let me explain!

We searched through www.travelzoo.com An awesome site that brings to you 100s of booking sites like www.cheapcaribbean.com where we were able to book our amazing honeymoon!

On the day of both the vernal equinox and the autumnal equinox (and several days leading up to and after the events), afternoon sunlight bathes the western balustrade of the El Castillo pyramid’s main stairway causing seven isosceles triangles to form and create a shadow that imitates the body of a 120 foot long rattlesnake that creeps downwards until it joins a huge serpent’s head at the bottom of the stairway.

For all you sports lovers and athletes like myself there is a field for an ancient game the Mayans use to play. The field was surrounded by a large stone structure, each of the stone walls had one hole where a ball had to go through. But players could not use their hands or feet! You will be interested to know what happened to the losers. http://chichenitzaruins.org/mayan-ball-game/

It was amazing nonetheless! The four hour trip to the site, the cave jumping, and the beautiful cities we drove though are unexplainable. If you ever get a chance to travel this is a place you have to see for your own eyes.

Let The Journey Begin!

Thanks for joining me!

Since I can remember I’ve also done what I “should do” to get ahead. Within that journey of listening to the “what I should do’s” I’ve found it only benefits others not me. I hope what I share can help inspire you to do what you want to do. I am finally going to do what I want to do!
