Discount Notary Day #4: Wilshire & Highland

Good morning, Good morning, GOOD MORNING.

Discount Notary Day #4 for me and I am at the Starbucks at Wilshire and Highland (yes, there is parking) comfortable poised and positioned facing the entrance.  Look for single and hustlin’ female with a long sleeve blue with the words “Notary Public” on the back of her laptop (working on other stuff) to get your reduced notarizations today and today only!

Notaries normally charge $15 per signature to notarize your documents, but today I am offering $10 instead of $15.  And I’m only here till 1:00pm so stop by and see me before I leave.

One Thing: No Effort, Big Expectation

Work for it. Put in the time. Make the effort. So many people want something to happen for them, to them around them, that all they need to do is something! It’s the same mindset behind playing the lottery. You think that by playing a set of random numbers that you’re going to get a windfall of money and life will be ten times better?

Be your own windfall.

Yes, by all means dream big. But work bigger. Harder. More.

Money Tip: Set Goals

Saving and allocating dollars to certain funds is essential. It makes the whole process of monitoring and managing our money that much more tolerable, especially if it’s not our best quality or if we really hate being THAT responsible.

I would say I get it, but I like watching my money. I like knowing where every dollar went or where it goes. Even watching rent money slip through my fingers to someone else, gives me some sort of adrenaline knowing those dollars were successfully (key word) allocated for that purpose.

But I don’t just have funds I save for. I have an overall dollar amount I want to attain. This dollar amount – which I’m a little embarrassed to share – is my “I arrived” dollar figure. This amount is not meant to bring me happiness or endless good luck. This purpose is about peace of mind. Peace of mind in the sense that if everything should fall apart, I would still financially be fine. It’s what I also worked towards when saving for everything else. It’s part of the prize of my hustle.

What is your goal amount?

Side Hustlin’ Sunday: Graphic Design

Now, graphic designers are becoming as ubiquitous as real estate agents.  But that doesn’t mean you can’t make a good side hustle or even a good living being one.   And we all know that the more you do something, the more you practice at it, the better you become.  And the better you become, the more you can charge.

With free sites like Canva.com, you can begin to teach yourself the basics about graphic designing.  It’s no PhotoShop, but hey, eveyone’s got to start somewhere.  And once you’ve nailed resizing, duplicating and choosing the right font, maybe you can go ahead and invest in learning PhotoShop and other tools of the trade.

Much success!

One Things Thursdays

I’ve decided to get rid of “Thursday’s Thoughts” Theme for my blog.  I have too many thoughts when it’s not Thursdays and not even enough when the day comes.  Besides,the original idea behind Thursday’s Thoughts was to spark conversation among us lady hustlers, but instead, I’m going to channel the same goal with a twist called:

One Things Thursday

In fact, One Thing Thursday will be goal oriented and the honesty of the achievements and failures of that one thing.  They stay that real success is n’t mastered or conducted all at once, but rather one step, one action at a time.  In my case, it will be just one thing.
