WHEN: It Feels Like It’s Falling Into Place

I’m gonna keep this short and sweet, because sweet it is.

I’ve been interviewing for a position at a nonprofit for the past couple of weeks and as of this past Monday they offered me the position and I accepted it. And was thrilled to learn it pays 29% more than what I’m making now, has more benefits and after my first two days, I’ll be flying to New York for a retreat of theirs.

Holla, holla!

This is great news especially having received it on the eve of my birthday. Best birthday gift to myself… ever!!!

But… that doesn’t mean my side hustling days are through. Not by a long shot. It just means I’ll be able to better fund the dream. And the dream is to still be self employed. That’s the prize and my eyes are still on it. But this new job at this new company means I’ll get the opportunity to learn from a real business how to run a business, how to treat employees and because it’s a nonprofit, how to work with what you’ve got. Which I think I got that a handle on that so far.

Yes, it feels like I’m moving closer to the goal and that feels great. One step at a time.

This Week’s Goal: Getting Caught Up

I hate to admit it, especially with it only being the first week of February, but I’m a little behind. I wrote out my 6-month plan for the year, beautifully, by the way, before 2019 startrd. But I’m a little off track. So my goal for the week is the figure out how much off track I am from where I’m supposed to be, get back on track and figure out how to keep the momentum moving. Reading various materials about success and break throughs, they seem to say it happens when you’re working. Which is almost like a “duh”, but I think they’re implying that you’ve gotta be consistent in your work and focused on your goals.

So getting me on track will align me right back with consistent and deliberate actions. Specific actions bring about specific results. So…let’s get too it.
