I wish I had more time…

Aside Posted on Updated on

Dear readers,

I hope everyone is doing well and getting back on track with their money matters, I know I am. Even stepping it up a bit in 2016. Ha! Yes, even with my hectic schedule, I took on yet another task. This one is a reading challenge. Pretty easy right?  Uh, no.Skeptical

Well, that’s what makes it a challenge, because you have to make time for it, and I must stay true to myself. With all my lifestyle changes due to health concerns, I hardly have time to breathe let alone read a book. But I made a commitment to some friends and I’m surely not going to back down from a challenge. winkingsmiley

“Working smarter- not harder”, that’s my motto. So, I’m looking into a project that will allow my books to be added to Audible. (No, that’s not a typo I’m a published author now, and I plan on writing more  smiley ) Oh, you didn’t know? I apologize, I thought I mentioned it in my earlier post “A Writer’s Life“. Yes, I finally got it done, although I almost didn’t! Yay for me! Like I said, my life has been very busy, and it’s not slowing down anytime soon. *Thank God*, it’s all good; I won’t complain. However, I’ve digressed from the topic at hand,which is listening to books on Audible. Don’t get me wrong, I like to hold a copy of a writer’s work in my hand and see their autograph, I’m only looking at an alternative way to max my time and win the above challenge. Hehe.

This is what I like about Audible. I save money and time by listening to a book through my headsets while I’m cleaning the house or doing other chores, and every month, I receive a free credit point that I can use to buy more books! Isn’t that awesome? I think so.

After the initial trial period, the monthly membership will more than pay for itself time and time again. I’ve been able to stay up on my reading game AND keep my life on track. It’s definitely worth trying.

Well, that’s all for now…TTYL.

Peace, love, and prosperity,

Greetings! I have an announcement and yes, it comes with a catch. Free money is available ($5000.00 per fiscal year) to youth between the ages of 16-23 years old who are wards of the state (foster children and those transitioning out of foster care) for educational purposes, which can include room and board (while living on campus).

The fund is called the Education and Training Voucher (ETV), and it is provided to states to fund youth in the foster care system and those adopted who are enrolled in college, university and vocational training programs. Students may receive up to $5000.00 a year up to five years or until their 23rd birthday, based on the cost of attendance to their respective programs. ETV funds can be combined with other grants or scholarships to minimize or eliminate the need for student loans.  Read the rest of this entry »
