Hey now! Happy Monday! It is a great day to be alive! I hope you had the time to read my last post where I shared with you a tool…
Hey hey heyyyy!
How are you doing on this lovely Monday?
I am doing well. Thank you for asking!
Today I wanted to share with you some powerful information that will support you and I, in reaching our goals in 2021!
I have a lot of goals that I wrote down that I want to cross of my list, however, my most challenging goal to stick to at the moment are my fitness goals.
I enjoy working out, however, it is hard for me to stay consistent.
Because I am more comfortable sitting on my tail watching Dish Nation lol.
I don’t want this to be my story in 2021 and beyond.
I was listening to this book titled, “The Coaching Habit” by Daniel Mate and I realized that the reason why I don’t work out consistently is because I haven’t made a habit out of it.
A habit is an subconscious pattern of behavior that is formed through repeating an action on a regular basis.
After listening a little more, I realized that our habits are synonymous with our comfort zones.
Did you know that there was a study that was done that stated at LEAST 45% of our waking behavior is based off our habits.
We all have positive habits and negative habits that help or prevent us from reaching certain goals.
I have identified my habits that keep me stuck in my comfort zone, as it pertains to my health goals for 2021 and I am doing something about it.
I know for sure that there are goals that you want to reach in your life and there are negative habits that are preventing your from reaching your goals.
My goal is to empower you today with a strategy that will support you in improving your habits to reach the goals you struggle with in 2021.
Lets get into it!(more…)
Hey hey hey!!
This week is incredibly special to me. Why? Ya girl is turning 32 on Saturday. Yes, 32! I know I know, 32 where right. I said the same thing, but it is happening, and I am getting ready!
Ever since I could remember, my birthday has always been a big deal. My momma made it special and I like to uphold the tradition. Normally, I celebrate all month long.
Not so much the last few years, however, I have begun to implement a new birthday ritual in my life. I have been doing this since my 2018.
A few years prior I heard about this activity called “vision boards”.
I went to an event where we had to complete one and I loved it! I loved the fact that process allows me to be as creative as I want.
When I thought about what I wanted to include in my bday ritual, creating a vision board had to be included.
Last year for my birthday, I decided to add my love for numerology in my vision boarding process.
Before I design my vision board, I go online and research the energy behind my age.
I then print out the key terms and phrases that make my heart warm and place them on my vision board.
It really levels up the vision board process and is a confidence booster as well.(more…)
As some of you may know, I am preparing for Year 4 of The Stand, my mobile food cart business.
It hasn’t been the easiest for years either.
Let me give you a quick recap.
Year 1: I spent all my tax money on my mobile food cart. I got fired 2 weeks later from my job and ended up making $10,000 in less than 90 days. I thought hit the jack pot. I made my money back and then some.
Year 2: I got a job to sustain me through the winter months. My plan was to work both. The Stand and run my program at the community center. That did not go according to plan. I went out a few times, but all my time and effort went to developing and running the program. The money was good, for the most part and I was content. I did not have to hustle as hard. I enjoyed that but I did miss The Stand and the community missed me.
Year 3: I quit my job. I loved it, but I felt very much so used (in the words of my little sister lol). After applying for the manager position and being told that I could not get it because they didn’t know what I was managing after I developed and ran the whole program for a year I was confused and I quit. I quit November 2019 and was planning to have my most lucrative year with The Stand yet, starting May 2020. However, March 2020 Corona hit. Crazy right? If I would have stayed at my job a little longer I would have been able to collect unemployment smh lol.
Anyway, my plans changed. My plan was to go out at least 5 times a day starting May. With Corona in the community I wasn’t comfortable going out every day. I needed more information.(more…)
Hey now! I am giving it another try, I am taking my butt to therapy……AGAIN! I tried going in 2019, however, it did not work out. I attended about 3-4…
So you want to start a business?
It sounds cliché but a well thought out “Why?” determines whether you will have a profitable business or not.
Let me explain what I mean.
I have found that there are 3 types of business people in this world
- Those who are motivated by their purpose
- Those who are motivated by money
- Those who are not motivated at all
If you fall under the category of the unmotivated.
You probably aren’t reading this post right now, so I won’t spend much time here.
But what I will say is, if you are around an unmotivated adult, you can’t change them, but you can expose them to certain situations and experiences, if they are open to them, great. If not, move on.
If you are motivated by money. That’s cool.
However, I have found that people who are only motivated by money will either(more…)
I don’t know about you but I hate debt.
It gives me anxiety.
I don’t like owing people.
I got my first credit card when I was 18.
My mom tried to warn me, but I didn’t listen.
At 18 I got every card I could think of and I maxed each one out.
I have paid that debt off since then, acquired more, and now I can say in the 2020, I was able to get all my credits down to less than $100 balance, during a pandemic.
In 2021, my goal is to maintain a low balance on my credit cards, while attacking my car payments. I also want to start attacking this school loan debt.
The golden rule is that you do not want your credit card to exceed 30% of the credit limit.
My goal is to definitely stay under that!
I was doing some research and I found that most people my age, 35 and under, have
- Student loan debt
- Credit Card debt
I know this was true in my life until I paid off my credit cards.
Today, I want to share what I did to pay off my credit card debt and leave you with some methods that can support you in paying off your debt as well.(more…)
It’s Sunday so you know what that means….
Tarot time, one of my favorite days of the week!
Last week, the cards spoke to the fact that I am elevating to a new plane.
I am a BOSS and I have to stay focused on my strategy and keep my feet to the ground to manifest my desires.
At the same time, I was also called to rest and relax, letting me know that its possible to do both. I do not have to over exert myself when it comes to reaching my goals.
The overall theme for this week calls for me to celebrate.(more…)
As I reflect on my financial goals
Where I came from, where I am currently, where I want to go.
I can honestly say that I see a lot of growth.
I came a long way!
One of the major realizations that I have had is that managing and growing your finances is all about your mindset.
You really have to go from a mindset of poverty, lack, and instant gratification to a mindset of wealth, abundance, and patience, especially when you come from where I come from.
This journey is easier said than done.
Most people who are mentally living in a state of poverty are
- okay with it
- don’t even realize they living in it
Managing and growing your finances is also about ACTION!(more…)
11.23 Happy Monday! Over the weekend I had the opportunity to host a “Breakfast and Visions” with a group of dope Black entrepreneurs and community leaders from the city of…
