NSI (Never Stop Improving)

30 Sep

So many of you noticed I haven’t posted for a few days. And many also noticed that my last article wasn’t finance or entrepreneurial based. Heck it had no place in this blog by most standards. However it was a step, a big step actually. You see I wrote that article for a separate site. And my reasons were threefold.

-To express myself.
-To hone my craft.
-To make a modest or marvelous writing career materialize.
Ill break it down real quick.

-To express myself.
I’m sure my mother would say I always wanted to talk lol. She tells stories of me being young and talking to anyone and everyone. From being on the train coming from brooklyn @ 2 years old talking to drunks, to speaking with prostitutes and anyone who would listen- I’ve always spoke. And about as far back as I can remember writing I remember being a poet as well. Now as time has progressed so has my skill and subject matter. Far from being a master, I’m simply a novice who knows such. I’m barely trained in the classical sense but find that to be a trivial if not irrelevant matter. In the day and age of computers and the advent of blogging I find that will to create and share in an honest fashion will triumph.

That being said, I just say what I want. I always wanted to be an entrepreneur and sold stickers in elementary school. So naturally my first blog was focused on success and entrepreneurial growth. And now my extra efforts are being set aside to focus on my other loves and perhaps a good bit of exposure.

-To hone my craft.
To do anything is to do it well or you’re wasting time. I write because it pleases me. And as I grow older I’ve also decided to write for gain. If not cash gain at least respect. I’ve decided that I won’t do anything unless I do it all right. There is a fine line between just putting out words and speaking truth with a masters touch. Now I’m not a master but I look forward simply towards its journey.

-To make a modest or marvelous writing career materialize.
As long as I’ve been able to write I’ve written for more than school. Poetry, rap lyrics, papers that weren’t required. It never mattered. I’ve written and written. And as an adult I’ve realized I want it to be a career. I may not win a pulitzer etc etc- but I will follow through on my dream. This month and the next I have features and columns coming out in 3 different venues not my own. I’m also doing much of this for free. Why you ask? Simply for the love of my craft. I will write until I’m dead and that being so I will attempt to make a career of it. Nothing in this life is good unless you make it such. And so I shall.

Job, Career, Your Own Business- You Decide.

11 Sep

Job,
Career,
Your Own Business-
You Decide.

I think the concept here eludes many people and I intend to divulge the facts! Lol okay I’m having fun but its real talk my friends. Let’s unpack this to see where we all fit.

-Job.
A job is what it sounds like- it’s just work. It might pay bills. It might be fun. Its not much else. A paper boy has a job. I had that job and it was great for a time. Cool, new and cash paid weekly. However it had no future, benefits and was not fun in the rain. Many adults live that reality and simply trudge back to it day after day. Really going to accept that?

-Career.
So u want more. You want a career. Nice. Smart choice. You have realized that there is more to working. Work is okay, and it may even get some good coin in your pocket.
Problem is what career?
What do you love?
What is your passion?
So you love that ’52 chevy your dad had. And you bought one and got it going pretty well. Paint is eh, but it runs like a dream. So you have your passion and you figure why not work for Unique Autosports. A lifetime restoring the things you love is time well spent.
Perhaps you love carpentry and you here the local 403 is hiring. Great benefits, overtime, retirement package that is guaranteed. This is really cool! You have 35 years to do what you love, get paid for it, and retire with mula, dinero, cash to boot!
Loving what you do rocks.

-Your Own Business.
Now for the heart of the matter.
So we know a job gets us coin.
A career may be more fulfilling.
And yet the best option is ahead.
In this humble mans opinion having my own business is a breath of fresh air. And while I’m not Warren Buffet or Ray Higdon I know I will be.
Having your own business puts you in the driver seat.
You make your hours.
You choose your clients.
You hire and fire staff instead of being staff. You can’t be fired from your business. You may put in no effort and lose at the game of life but that’s different.
But having your own business puts you in the driver seat.
And sorry folks but that is what built America.
Small business/large business owners, entrepreneurs breathe life into our economy. When you that is you, you rock!
Owning your own business also gives you awesome tax breaks. So that’s a super win. Make money and keep more of what you make.
Owning your own business will give you options you haven’t seen.
I also find it appealing to call my shots. I like my boss- he’s cool. However I want to take the risks, call the shots and reap greater rewards.
You can give back easier with your own business too. The pluses have added up huh?
Now I won’t kid you its a lot of work. And those who make it sacrificed. Yet wouldn’t you want to sacrifice to get ahead?
Furthermore, if you can create residual income you will be free. Let that business you love create income even when you don’t work. A carpenter can do it. A tech, a boss, a cook. And isn’t that the dream?
I like my job- its actually a good career too.
I want more though. I need to make it- on my terms. Its a strong desire I’ve had since 5 or 6 yrs old.

Feel the same?
Made a decision?
Need to step off the path?
Let’s talk.
