Task- Make media that brings income bi-weekly.

Consistently getting better daily, one foot in front of the other.

Keep growin’. Keep the things that got you there- gratitude, learning, look to improve a process.

Make yourself an LLC or 1099

It’s been up to me since 2019. It’s now 8/2022. 3 years have passed.

Work till media brings more income.

If start-ups go down, I go down w it. (Rent, food, utilities, transportation, going out)

What’s your expenses?

  1. Emergency fund (1 year) — 10k safety net

Financing 1. Own money 2. Loans (bank will usually hold you accountable for loan)

If u build up and grow a profitable business, banks will offer you loans w out having u as a guarantee.




Why did you fail? Most of the time, on me.

Reflect on failures, and adjust metrics.

Pros of a job- structure; time of shift, tasks given, 10s, and when you’re good to go.
