As the seasons change so shall I.  Have some huge decisions to make this week about my career.  Kind of scary but I am pressing through.  Going to meet with some key people this week and see if I can finally get this consulting thing off the ground. 

I have not given up on my "Inside-Out" makeover.  Most the making over has been internal as I get my mind right and figure out what I want out of this life I have been blessed with.  I have made small changes over the years but I still have a lot to go.  I figure by the time its all over I will have a book to share LOL!

My plan is to continue to keep up my little blog updates on a more regular basis.  I plan starting up with the videos again sometime in the next few months just in time for the new year!  :-)

Multiple Streams of Income???

Thought I was going to hit that Powerball but no such luck LOL!  I did win $4 though (Yay!!!)  Oh well on to plan B!

I read somewhere not too long ago that most millionaires have at least 7-10 streams of income.  That's like what...1 full time job and 6 part time jobs???  Any who, so I have been researching business and money making ideas and found lot about small businesses working from home.  Well I already work from home as a social worker so I need some more ideas.  One business (I like to call them my side hustles) is my training and development company I started a few years ago.  In a way I consider that an extension of my social work practice.  So far that's 2 so I need at least 5 more!  I need some help!  In one of my google searches and strolling through Facebook groups I found out about this site where you can make money online: 

Affiliate Program ”Get Money from your Website”

I also found that most people recommend multi-level marketing (MLM) companies like Avon and Mary Kay.  I have been looking into those but so far I haven't found a company I liked or that doesn't have a million sellers out there.  I want to find something that helps people and a hard sell for me.  Many of these companies sell items that are overpriced or not good quality.  I was in a MLM a couple of years ago that offered a variety of services that in the end I found the products and services to be higher in price than their competitors and not too great quality in the services.  Either way I am still looking and searching.  I will keep you posted!

Time REALLY Flies By in the Blink of an Eye!

Gosh I can not believe I have not posted in over a YEAR!!!  Its like 2014 didn't even happen LOL!  No such luck but its now 2015 and I am still making my lists and plans and goals and always reaching and looking toward the future!  Whew that was a mouthful!

Well I won't bore you with the details of last year because it is in the past but I have a lot to look forward to in 2015:

10 Years Post Grad School
20 Years a Soror of Delta Sigma Theta
25 Years Post High School Graduation

The business ideas are flowing and I am so excited about the things I have planned!  I promise to stay true to you my bloggies and post more this year!  I am even researching topics to discuss just for YOU!

Time Flies...

Well, well, well...this year has flown by!  I have been reviewing my list plans that I made at the beginning of the year and although not all of my goals have not been completed they are in full motion.  As of now I am busy working toward my goals for 2014.  I am making my lists and checking it twice LOL! 

As I get older I see my focus and desires for my life have changed.  Or should I say evolved!  I am at a point in my life where I only want to focus on what's most important to me and I am definitely seeing the benefits of quality over quantity.  I see so many people working and sacrificing their time and health for things...THINGS!!!  Thinks that they can't take with them and trying to make an impression when the impression has already been made. 

I have gotten reflective in my old age LOL!  I prefer to look at how I can impact others rather that be led by ambition and status.  The only downfall about this revelation is that it has not been lucrative so far in my journey...but by faith I will survive.  I fully expect to THRIVE!

What is This Country Going to Do NOW!!! (My reflections on the George Zimmerman/Trayvon Martin case)

Well I meant to post at the beginning of the month but time got away from me.  Just got finished watching the reading of the verdict in the Zimmerman/Martin case and I am shocked and saddened to say the least.  But this I know:  George Zimmerman has to live with what he did for the rest of his life.  This is a sad fact that some may not understand.  Just as many of us have stood in support of the Martin family there have been just as many supporters for Zimmerman and this so called "Stand Your Ground" law that ultimately lead to his release. 

In graduate school I learned a lot about the historical significance of laws and how they impact my work as a social worker from a macro (big picture) perspective.  As problems arose in our society the need for laws became necessary.  Laws are born out of social problems.  Point blank period!  Once a social problem is deemed big enough to impact the larger society, then there are processes set the path for it first becoming a Bill and then moving forward to become Law. 

As I think about Trayvon Martin and his family I look to the lesson that is in this.  We must look at this as a social issue - a universal issue - that needs to be addressed as such.  The events that led to this evening's decision bring light to the many social problems that this country obviously disagree on.  If we all agreed then George Zimmerman would be in jail.  It is time for society to redefine the values and issues that are important and then see to it that these things are addressed as a collective.

Instead of complaining about the injustice that was clearly displayed this evening, we must arm ourselves with the knowledge of how laws are formed and more importantly how laws are changed.  To learn more about this process check out How Laws Are Made.   The unique thing about our political system is that the same processes that led to Zimmerman's acquittal can also be used to stop this injustice from happening again.  It just takes some work from a few dedicated and motivated individuals that will be loud enough and diligent enough to see it through.  The question is:  Who's going to get started to bring the true change needed to ensure the safety and security of our children?

My passion...

My purpose and passion is helping, mentoring, and teaching people.  I guess that's why I became a social worker!  This profession is truly a journey with a lot of twists and turns.  I feel blessed that I know that I am doing what I was meant to do.  Not everyone can say that...

When I am sharing information that can help others get where they want to be I feel my best.  It is a unique feeling!  I love being able to point people in the right direction.  It really is about sharing and not looking for anything in return.  Sharing yourself and insight to be a blessing to others is a wonderful thing. 

No long post here just thought I would share ;-)
