Admission of the week: I am not as financially prepared as I need to be

16 Feb

Admission of the week:

I am not as financially prepared as I need to be.

So no long story or fancy financial news or social media hacks today.

Today what I have for you is a stark admission- I am not financially prepared to a level I need to be or should be given the amount of financial intelligence I possess.

I know how to make money. I know how to save money. I know how to be resourceful. The problem is I haven’t put all these skills together. Now as my own lawyer I will say I left my home state and job career excetera to relocate with my family when it was only three people deep and now there’s four people deep cuz my next son is coming in 2 months. Now I can say that that was the reason I could not get ahead. But I’ll be honest and say that the impetus of having a family should have moved me before I had a family. I know that’s a lot to swallow it’s a simple fact and a basic truth. I did not commit when I should have. I was having making some money having some Investments and getting some stocks.

And yes I own some Tesla and some Sprint and some muscle farm and some other companies. But it is not enough. My family deserves so much more. And you know what, in all honesty my peace of mind deserves more. When we say we do it for our family or friends are Legacy excetera that’s all great oh, but you should be doing it for yourself. I should be dominating the world because I want to. And I want to. I just kind of quit when things got comfortable. The lesson tonight is simply don’t get comfortable build build build, sleep when you’re dead.

4 days in….

9 Dec

So if you saw my last post you know I was in the hospital temporarily.

I walked out of that hospital on my own two feet and drove myself home. Albeit, I did need an Uber to get back to my car LOL. I say all this to say you can do anything. I’m 4 days in to a new kick where I am putting down Alcohol and Other habits that, while you can enjoy it we’re killing my motivation and my life as a whole. I’ve had a really rough day or so but it all comes down to my body is going through minor withdrawal and it’s also accepting a new life. Change is never easy but I accept it and embrace it.

For me it is through God.

I am moving forward with a new life and will enjoy it whether it is hard or easy. I will also look towards growing better, more regular content for you- my readers.

As we head towards 2019 I have a plethora of articles unfinished and a plethora of ideas that will come to fruition.

Look for more content beginning this Monday, peace.

Common Sense

12 Oct

As a kid I loathed when my dad would say “it’s common sense,” but damned if he wasn’t right.

Free Ebooks are better than an MBA

Free Ebooks are better than an MBA.

Yes, you read that correctly.

My wife was in the hospital this whole week. And being the dedicates partner she deserves- so was I. I’m not tooting my own horn, by no means. I am blessed to havea dedicated partner so I in turn am fully dedicated to her.

The below image shows some of the business ebooks I downloaded for free while she slept. I am a voracious reader, devouring books like so many penny candies (I was born in 1980 when this was a thing, don’t judge me). So I’m always on the lookout for free, quality reading material.
