“ If at first you don’t succeed/
you can dust it off and try again/
dust yourself off and try again
How many of you know where these lyrics come from??? If you don’t, take this.
I admit to not caring enough about my blog portfolio. To the point of severe time-neglect. It’s not that I don’t like it, or didn’t want to do more, or wasn’t very happy with my work and the feedback from friends & clients… Just that being grown is hard, and I was working all the time (designing, teaching, Uber-ring even (never no more)) instead of being what I should have been - in business.
To a degree, I’ve been intrigued and somewhat good at business: I have skills and can talk the talk. But my financial business acumen was not there. When I was a munchkin, they just never taught us in school. The other times I was tapping on the door of entrepreneurial-ship, I was flatly discouraged because I was direct competition and didn’t have enough keen to know that. As an adult, after a career move that gave me mad skills but could have caused me my life (this is literal); in addition, almost made me crazy, I went about this the wrong way. How?
1. I went to COLLEGE-
2. Bad relationships-
Sad but just a fact. Your partner isn’t your partner if he or she is jealous of you. Believe what you see the first time; let that sh*t go. Add the word “friend” to this observation as need be.
3. Family Deaths-
After my Aunt Florita died in 2017, my father Rickey Pierre passed away that following October. It was too much, along with the other top sections above stated. I think I cried every straight day for about a month.
4. NOT ENOUGH MONEY-
The metaphor is true, you must pay to tourney on this real world board of Chess and Monopoly. And back then, I could barely get a car loan, let alone a business one.
Yet, it’s all good because I am still here and back to my blog to give you all panchromatic realness. Changes have come to set me into better patterns, and I have the capital and knowledge to succeed. -I will do that.
I will be back to post some more; my 2018 thru 2020 compilation. Leave some feedback, shall you? Why, thank you then… Alright.
