Starting Something Inspiring

I am new to business and new to entrepreneurship.   I am new to the idea of “be your own boss”.  I am new to the idea of “hustling”.  Ten months ago, I met my best friend and boyfriend and while getting to know each other and helping each other grow, I have learned so much!  The traditional idea of get a job so you can go to school, so you can get a job working for somebody else for the rest of your life, then retiring long after is not so traditional to me anymore.  Obviously having a job right now is important, I do work for someone else at the moment, and I am going to school to get my degree.  However, what I’m learning is that you can literally do whatever you want to do!  If you need some money, go out and make some money!  If you want to start a business, then start one!  I had a lot of dreams growing up.  Even back when I was in my elementary years I was organizing clubs and groups, and begging my dad to help me start my own business.  I would have been happy with anything!  I mapped it out, planned it out, but didn’t seek it out.  I didn’t have the necessary resources.  I wasn’t raised that way.  I was a little too “creative” to some.  Now, that wasn’t anyone’s fault, that was just the mindset of the community I was raised by.  “Stop dreaming, just finish school and get a good job,” I was told.  “Your ideas are not realistic.”  Let me tell you right now, never stop dreaming!  Last year, we had a dream.  Our dream is coming to life.  We are starting our own business.  People will always shake their heads.  They will always tell you, be realistic and be responsible.    I say follow your dreams AND be realistic and responsible.  I’m still working and I’m still going to school, yet we are starting our own business on the side.  Let me tell you, it’s an amazing feeling.  It’s a very long and not really easy process, but we are patient.  We have never rushed anything.  Success comes with time, patience, and dedication.  That’s exactly what we’ve been doing.  We have so many dreams and ideas I could never possibly put it on paper, but let me tell you that if you have a dream, an idea, or a slightest thought.. RUN WITH IT!  “Shoot for the moon, and if you don’t make it you will land in the stars,” we always tell each other.  

Feel free to check out out blog for one branch of our new business.  We just put it together today and we are very excited!  Expect to see great things from us.  I know we are going to be very successful.  The sky is not the limit.  WE HAVE NO LIMIT.  




To the New Year

Hey guys!  Welcome to my blog I am new to this but I’m excited to get started.

First of all 2011 was a hard year for me.  A lot of crazy things happened which I’m sure you’ll hear about in later blogs.  I want to do this year right I’ve really been getting my life together and it feels amazing!  I felt blogging along my way of this journey would be fun on account of I love writing and sharing my experiences and thoughts.

Now, since we are 10 days into the new year of 2012 (yay!), I want to talk about my resolutions and how I’m doing on them so far.

I really didn’t make any official resolutions or anything, but in life I am always making myself goals.  Something I really challenge myself on is self awareness and always learning and bettering myself.  I’ve been doing a great job with this.  You know those “in the moment” words and actions?  Something I’ve been working on is being aware of those “in the moment” moments as they begin. And when I realize them, I take a step back, analyze the situation and possible outcomes and then step back in, thinking rationally.  I guess that’s part of growing up. (:

Another goal I have for myself I’ve actually been working on this one for awhile but about six months ago I quit drinking and I’ve done a great job sticking to that.  So  for 2012 I want to stay sober until my 21st birthday.

One other thing I would love to do this year is to write a book or short story about my life the last year kind of as an informative and entertaining piece which I started a few days ago.

And as I said I was recently promoted to manager, so my resolution for this is to just be the best manager I can be and do amazing things for my store!

The new semester at my college also started recently, so I really want to stick with school and achieve good grades, so we will see how this one plays out!

Other than those goals, I have the usual you know eat healthier, become more fit, do more yoga, pray more, smile more, worry less, just be happy 🙂

Well, happy blogging everybody!  Talk to you soon!
