I Quit My Job: Time Management, Schedules and Big Fat Lies Told to Entrepreneurs

I Quit My Job: Time Management, Schedules and Big Fat Lies Told to Entrepreneurs

The National Black Film Festival was here last week and one of the questions asked was ‘how do you manage your family time’?

When I first left radio, I thought that I would have more time, buuuuuuuuut I was so wrong. Even without a full time job, time still seems to escape me EVERY SINGLE DAY!

I quickly learned that I needed to set a schedule with meditation first on the list in the morning before I drop my daughter off to school. Next, I workout and then begin my day with set ‘work hours’. YES I still have real work hours and though it’s not always consistent, read the story in its entirety here. 

I’m curious to know what works for you – don’t forget to leave a comment!

I Quit My Job: Budgeting as a Single Parent with @clevergirlfinance

I Quit My Job: Budgeting as a Single Parent with @clevergirlfinance

Finances and Parenting!!! I got a chance to chat with Bola Onada Sokunbi of @clevergirlfinance about the challenges of single parenting and entrepreneurship along with this new sense of freedom of living in my purpose.

Things have changed over the last 3 months for me and my budget looks a lot different from when I was making six figures a year at my previous job. I used to shop at Target once a week – literally. But now, I am very intentional with my purposes and I have to pay attention to what I am spending. Recently I opened up my daughter’s savings account and this year, she wants to visit Hawaii!!!

Of all places, she wants to one of the most expensive trips yet, to the Aulani resort this year. But guess what, we have a budget and a plan for it! See how we are STILL going to save for our annual trip to Hawaii here! 

As always, I love you all. Thanks for your DM’s, messages, inboxes and checking on me. The journey continues….

Budgeting for Entrepreneurs: Finances

Budgeting for Entrepreneurs: Finances

Now that I’ve quit my job, I need to pay EXTRA attention to how much I’m spending AND bringing in. Being an entrepreneur is so not for the weary. It really takes working 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, SEVEN days a week. It’s all about your hustle, networking and relationships with like minded people. This week, I talked with Wealth Strategist, Jaelsa Ann and she had a chance to look at my own personal expenses, savings and investments. She shares with me some REAL advice. I’m not an over-spender, but here’s what Jalesa had to say about MY finances… Check it out here!
