We are all aboard the Mission 022222 train and the first stop is Mission 3000!
My first goal is to replace my income so that regardless of what the J.O.B. future holds, I know I will be OK financially. And the first step to getting there is the minimum minimum I want to live off of and that amount is $3,000.
This is going to be broken down to get to $1,500 and then reaching at least $3,000. This portion is going to run through August 11th.
One of the bad habits I’m working on fixing is not completing WSOs. I’ll start and get distracted by a new one OR one I already have and want to start.
I’m going to start with a new WSO by Stuart and Bart called Custom Template Treasure Chest. While there are tons of templates you can sell, this will focus on resumes!
The main book is 83 pages, with the last handful being their other products.
One thing about ETSY is that your costs are minimal, so whatever you sell will be mainly profit. Build a strong store and you can earn a pretty penny!
I didn’t get as far into CTTC as I wanted because I was trying to catch up in The Miracle Morning Millionaires to do my Lent. BUT I’ve failed in trying to implement TMMM, but will do a fresh start next week!
I don’t celebrate Lent per se, but had planned using this as a kickstart for some focus and habit goals! But 40 days is 40 days!
In 3 weeks I’ll be on my FIRST vacation in YEARS! Even though it’s just a weekend, I’ll be actually going somewhere!
My last vacation that wasn’t a staycation was in the early 2000s when I was still living in California and would go down to LA to Billy Blanks’ gym. A few times it was for the taping of the TaeBo videos and yes a few that I was in were distributed. A few other times, I went down to workout at his studio.
My first flight was in September 2001 for a TaeBo Studio opening in the DC area. The sad part was that the only reason I was able to go, was because of a bonus we received at work AND airfare wars going on at the time. I stayed with a friend so didn’t have to worry about a hotel.
At the time, I had wished I had more money because I wanted to extend it and go to New York while I was on the East Coast. I’m not sure what you want to attribute it to, but in the end, it was good I didn’t have it. Why? I left DC on September 10th, 2001.
I’m going to Missouri for a LivePD Meet and Greet. I’m flying in on Friday and leaving Monday. I also have the balance of the week off. I’ve been on rotation for so long I messed up my initial request! Because if you want to ensure your entire time is a vacation, you have to put in your off days as unpaid. So being used to having to do that I initially included the weekends in it! So had to retract when I realized what I did and redo it!
I changed hotels the other day. We’re planning on watching the show Friday night at one of the hotels’ bars, so I checked and they still had rooms (many hotels are sold out that weekend, some were even when I booked months back), so canceled the first one and re-booked. It’ll be more expensive (just because of the chain) but I’ll be with everyone. And I’ll check with folks to see who has an extra seat for the event.
A few departments who were committed had to back out because of new obligations. I hope they do another one and those departments will be able to attend and I can go as well.
It has just been being very tight and budgeting the last few months I’m able to squeak this out. But I NEED to change this! I want to be in a position to be able to say “YES!” to something 2 or 3 months out. To be able to say “YES!” to something I find out about at the last minute! And when I say “YES!” already have the money to be able to do it.
I want to be able to help others as well. If someone is in need, to be able to help them out.
I’ll be posting my next plans in another post, so stay tuned!
