In 2016, I emailed my part-time PR firm I worked for to put in my 2 weeks to a month notice. It looked something like this:
I have enjoyed blah blah blah, but I have started a side business and business is picking up. I’d like to submit my blah blah blah
Thanks so much,
Then, I received a relatively quick & slightly snark response (at least I thought).
Thanks for letting us know. If you’re doing so well, then today can be your last day.
aka F8CK you. At least that’s how I…
Yet another time in my life, at 28 years old, I realize I am unhappy with my life path.
Often I find myself diving into new ventures (most recently being a real estate agent) with the hopes of making enough money to fuel my millions of creative ideas swimming in my artist’s brain. And just as often, I am bombarded with overwhelming feelings of discontent with the way the cookie crumbles.
Call it the journey. Call it my progress. I know I want to create full-time, yet I feel constantly stuck in the drudgery quicksand of building businesses that I…
Being in the music industry for around 10 years, I have tried a mirage of marketing tactics in an attempt to MAKE IT in this world.
I’ve seen different waves of social media and advertising transform dramatically. I started with MySpace messaging people then moved to handing out flyers, reaching out to blogs etc, and these days I’m constantly studying the ever changing advertising opportunities from Facebook Ads, Playlisting, IG Promotion, YouTube Ads and just leveraging content / virality in general.
I could go on and on about all the success and fails over the years, but today, I…
I have finally for the first time in my freaking life saved $1,000, and I am so stoked about it! I’ve had some really good years and some really bad years as an entrepreneur, but no matter how much money the business brought in, I never found myself saving it. It always went into a new investment and not the best kinds.
There are three main things that helped me to save. Two of three I stopped doing. One I started to do, and ALL are assumed you are making more than your bare minimum to pay bills, expenses, EAT…
Flour into the big ass bowl. Dough packet. Water. Cut on the mixer. Throw the dough on the table. Weight it. Roll it. Cheese. Toppings. Oven. Cut. Box, and now, I’m running out the ay door to freedom.
I delivered pizza for almost two years in my little beat-up tan 2001 under the sun ford contour that used to be my great grandfathers. Good times. Well, eh..
After a brief stint in construction work for $10/hr at 21, it seemed that working for Marco’s Pizza was my best bet for making money. The tips, yo.
It was flexible. The team…
Q’s Chicken Shack — Beaufort, SC — Best Chicken Sandwich
So naturally the next step was to grab a celebratory lunch.
Mom: Do you want Japanese?
Cole: Hm, sure! Whatever you want!
Mom: okay, just follow me!
*Drives across the bridge in Beaufort, SC, Mom pulls into Q’s Chicken Shack. 😂
She gets out the car laughing because she couldn’t resist! Luckily, we made it in just before the lunch rush. This is the cutest little place! We sat inside because in Beaufort this is the time of the year of the infamous Noseeums ;)
If you are any sort of side hustler or entrepreneur, you most likely have considered getting your real estate license at some point. I mean even if you aren’t, especially with how 2020 was, you’ve probably considered every route to diversify your income.
After doing 5+ years of real estate marketing, I finally buckled down and made the decision to get my own…in July of 2020. By February of 2021, I became officially licensed. 8 days later and I went under contract on my first deal. The point being it took upwards of 7 months… WHAT???
Okay, honestly, it…
Well, my first week as a real estate agent in Beaufort, South Carolina is officially complete. It’s just all been very overwhelming and the word of the week is definitely… TIRED..
Your best bet is to watch the video for these vlogs, but let’s chat about it real quick.
The hardest part right now is definitely juggling everything. I’m trying to run a photo/video business, learn and utilize ALL of the amazing resources that eXp & Team Kasia offer, AND actually implement a strategy to begin to gain clients. I’m learning digitally and by going out and doing different…
As a 27 year old business owner, being late on rent isn’t something you want to happen. Well, no one really wants to be late paying rent. It’s scary when the first of the month comes around, and you really don’t know what you are going to do.
Being a self-employed entrepreneur, I deal with the idea of “where is this money going to come from?” quite frequently. I remember just a few months ago I was so stoked because I was $1000 short of rent on the 1st, and SOMEHOW the money came to me by the 5th. The…
