Here’s more of “Who says it can’t be done?!”

Posted on Updated on

Let’s face it- some of us are living beyond our means, in staggering debt, and not exercising enough and it’s by our own doing (or not doing)! Yep, there I said it! No excuses, and no apologies!

The first step to success is to admit to a problem and then find ways to solve it. These challenges will take us into the next year and start a snowball effect that will drastically change our lives- are you up for it? So, I challenge you to do one if not more of the following with me and see where we end up. Here’s a list of the following challenges. Your mission, if you decide to take it-

Read the following blog articles and/or video challenges, then choose one (or all three) to work on:

  1. The 30 Day No-Fail Money Challenge – The Debt Myth
  2. 30 Day Challenge: Finishing What I Started
  3. The 30 Day Meditation Challenge on DOYOUYOGA

There’s only three to choose from- how hard could it be? Remember, just pick one and do it consistently for the next 30 days! As always, “comment”, “like”, and/or “share”.

See you soon!

Until next time…

Peace, love and prosperity,

     This journey of self-discovery has been amazing. Also, very challenging. If you are a first time author, you know exactly what I mean. Even seasoned authors will attest to the amount of time and effort that goes into living in your purpose and how overwhelming it can be at times. For some it’s all about the fame and glory, if that’s all you’re in it for that’s fine. As for me, I have a different agenda and if fame and glory, riches and wealth come with it, that was a part of my destiny all along.

I’m so glad that I decided to walk out in faith although I almost didn’t because of fear of failure or not being perfect. Every post I share with you has been about my growth as an individual and I hope that my experiences in life will shed light on the power of believing in yourself, and persevering through uncertainty.

It’s been a long day and now I’m ready for some relaxation. So, I thought I’d type a few words here and call it a night. Look for my next few articles where I discuss some things I learned from self-publishing. Like whether it’s a good idea to use a vanity publisher or not and what to look out for if you do.

That’s all for now. Until next time…
Peace, Love, and Prosperity,

Time Management These Days

Posted on Updated on

Greetings!

    How is everyone? I hope you are living a life of abundance and love. If you’re anything like me, prioritizing a to-do-list may give you a headache. Even though it’s my least favorite task,  because I would prefer to not be limited or constrained, it’s just the way it is….it must be done. These days time management is imperative. Most of my days have been spent reading books and writing reviews, traveling to market my book, Journey Into Finance in various bookstores and libraries and working a full time job.

     At the time I wrote this, it was raining outside, and I was enjoying a warm cup of coffee and some time writing and catching up with my readers. I’d love to hear from you as fellow bloggers and writers about tips on managing your time while keeping your fans engaged. I’m always open to ideas, so leave your comments below.

     Managing time effectively is a powerful asset because without it life can become chaotic. Who needs chaos in their life? Definitely not me and I’m sure you don’t either. Chaos is an emotional overload of the brain that causes a rift throwing us off balance and will affect our ability to maximize our precious time.

>Here are a few tips I picked up:

  1. Rise early and meditate– before everyone gets up, take that time for a meditationlittle introspection (prayer) and do not think about anything work related for at least 30 minutes.
  2. Set a routine for yourself– everything has it’s time and place, make sure to follow a specific routine and make time for the unexpected (the what-if’s)
  3. Be truthful to yourself and Others– if you just can’t do it- say NO. There’s no sense in beating around the bush, just get to the point with no regrets.
  4. Step away (take a walk, exercise, drink some water, eat something healthy, go outside)– nothing is more important than your own peace of mind. If you get stuck on a project- ,move around and come back to it.
  5. Take it easy on yourself– you are doing the best you can and if you know that you’re not, do better.

     Staying balanced is key to optimal health and wealth. As I remind others, I’m also a reminder to myself for my ears and eyes are closer to me than they are to anyone else. As always, remember to like, share and/or comment.

That’s all for now- short and sweet. smiley

Until next time,

Peace, Love and Prosperity,

It’s Working!

Posted on Updated on

newtitle2

Being a great leader stems from being a great follower. Over the years I have been emphasizing the importance of money management (a taboo topic) and breaking the cycle of ignorance that has plagued the black/African American consumers for years. I’m pleased to say “it’s working!!”

More and more businesses are now marketing their efforts to the under-served families in and around their communities bringing awareness and reinforcing the ideology of building generational wealth.

Journey Into Finance is not only about creating wealth in finances, but learning about personal triggers that cause toxicity in our lives and how to overcome them. I share what has helped me through my life journey change personal struggles into triumphs,and enriched my mind, body and spirit.

I thank you for joining me and encourage you to keep pressing forward, because eventually, it’ll pay off.

Until next time…

Wishing you peace and prosperity,

ET

LIVING THE LAW OF EXCHANGE

Posted on Updated on

Greetings fellow readers and followers,

It’s been a few months since I last posted here. As I look back over the topics I’ve discussed, I realized- there’s a whole lot of information on this blog. I’ve been writing for myself instead of writing for my guests. So here’s a throwback to ponder and drool over. Ok may not drool…eww. Happy reading.

I hope everyone is doing well and living in their greatest version of self. I’m Living the Law of Exchange. What do I mean by this statement. Well the other day, I went to the corner store to get change for a Benjamin. I had to spend at least $10 dollars. So I walked around the store to see what they had to offer in my neighborhood that was worth my ten dollars. To my surprise they had a good variety of healthy snacks. I purchased a few and picked up a few personal favorites like Dove body wash, an herbal drink, and some GoodSense snacks (nuts with dried fruit). I took my items to the register and said, “is this ten dollars worth?” The guy at the register said it was close enough. So, he gave me change that consisted of a Grant, two Jacksons, and a Washington.

money is energy

By now, another customer had picked up a case of beer and brought it to the counter as well. So, I’m taking my change and ask the guy next to me in line-

Me: “Who’s on the $50 dollar bill?”

I begin counting down like we’re on ‘Who wants to be a Millionaire?’

Me: “3, 2, 1…” waiting for his response- he’s thinking really hard. But I could tell he really just wanted to pay for his merchandise and go.

Guy: “I can’t even remember, cause I don’t ever have that kind of cash in my pocket”-

Me: “Grant! Grant is on the Fifty.”

I walk out the store, analyzing the interaction, because I believe there is a lesson in every situation and thought I’d share this with you.

I too didn’t know who was on the fifty dollar bill until I looked at one in my hand. Since the above encounter, I’ve had two more Grants and each time I give one away, I receive another. That’s what I mean by “Living the Law of Exchange”. I also have a Jefferson that I hardly ever get and it’s because I am holding on to that Jefferson like I won’t get it again. In order to receive, you have to give- law of exchange. Money is another form of “energy” exchange. What you give away freely without hoarding, comes back to you ten-fold. Just remember that, and if you don’t believe me, try it.

So, here is a list of former presidents [or not] appearing on currency you may carry around in your wallet or wish you did:
