Retired by 30: Here’s how to achieve the New Rich — One Beautician’s Wigs to Wall Street Success Story

Everyone has been asking me what exactly do you do? — I never have a definitive answer and it always makes me feel awkward when people ask.

I use to reply, “I am in Finance and Manage Funds for Institutions,” People use to be so impressed with my all of my skills or that I could tie an expensive college name accrediting them too. Not to mention, I worked at some investment firms worth name dropping.

Couple all that with the fact I was a girl making more money than most individuals who were getting ready to retire normally only achieved after a lifetime of struggles.

Now, my response is usually a little something like, “Oh I’m an entrepreneur, and hummmm…. well I BLOG that’s what I do I read and BLOG.” Pretty much a conversation ender. No one cares and no one is impressed, crickets chirp. Continue reading Retired by 30: Here’s how to achieve the New Rich — One Beautician’s Wigs to Wall Street Success Story

Why being selfish will help you achieve CEO status…

Do you ever stop to think? I know some people who’s entire life is absorbed with sports, music, social media, their cell phone, or some other mindless activity.

I had a conversation with someone the other day who I asked, “do you not ever think.” They replied, “no not really, maybe in the shower.” — the same person who also told me they want to get rid of their phone all together or leave it behind when they go on trips. Yet, they walk around day in and day out consumed by what is going on with their phone.

Does social media desensitize your judgement?

Recently, I decided to sell my house and didn’t really think too much about where I was going to live. I try to take things one step at a time.

But, every person I know has asked me where are you going to live? Why are you not going to move in with your boyfriend? When are you getting married?

I mean don’t you think I will tell you when I decide to do that? Don’t you think I have thought about the fact I am going to need to find a new home? Don’t you think I want to know when I’m getting married too?!?

Why is it such a big deal I decide not to share so many personal details (non — life changing details) about my day to day life? Continue reading Does social media desensitize your judgement?

Start FLAUNTING your FREEDOM to impact others in a “HUGE” way

1-c1efa69nsck6104w3fb3jg

Do you allow others to tell you the truth or train them to be better liars?

Fact: If you want better relationships your reactions must change.

Everyone reacts differently in a given situation because of what’s inside their heart. Different people have different reactions because of the different baggage, relationships, or backgrounds that they have experienced.

Maybe you don’t always react the right way or do the right thing. But, if you feel uneasy then it’s the perfect opportunity to change. Continue reading Start FLAUNTING your FREEDOM to impact others in a “HUGE” way

I Quit My SIX Figure Gig to become an Entrepreneur because Corporate America F*@#&% Me Over

0-lq5luiedvgdt6ybm

So, most people know me as the smart, over achiever, who was striving to climb the corporate ladder (and I was doing a great job of it).

I didn’t have a shitty childhood or horrible up bringing. But, my parents divorced when I was very young, which took a toll on my family.

I never realized how much of an impact it had on me until now.

All those years I grew up just trying to get my Dad’s approval. I went to school and worked jobs I never wanted to work just because I thought it would make him happy. I tried to pursue a life — my whole life — to please my Dad.

I can’t really say what led up to the start of my pursuit for “something bigger” something “more,” but I think it was a combination of things.

I assume everyone is raised to know right from wrong but some of the largest financial institutions in America didn’t seem to have the same values.

Motivation: Men VS Women

I thought about what you said to me the other night, “I think you have given out enough advice lately.” I had no response because I knew he was right. I sat quietly and finished dinner as if the comment didn’t phase me, but secretly I was crying inside.

I told myself, “You screwed up again.” “I thought you were going to stop telling him what to do and giving him so much advice.”

Even a guy friend of mine told me a loooooong time ago, “the way you win him over is to just make him think everything is his idea like he gave it to you already.” I have to say this actually works to some extent.

But, I hate this feeling inside and wanted Continue reading Motivation: Men VS Women

Write with NO expectations and just HIT freakin SEND

1-vdecoykh8l9bkqr7xajbnq

I think I write so much, I forget to actually write. It is so paralyzing to not be able to put the words on paper. I feel like I have so much to say, but no one will care. I have read so much about how to write and how to market what I write — BUT I NEVER WRITE!

I sit here day after day getting ready, telling myself today is the day. You are going to post an article that goes viral! You are going to finally start writing that book you have been preparing for.

Today becomes yesterday, then last week, then tomorrow.
