I am using this day to catch up on my backlog of managerial tasks. HELP!! I am wearing so many hats right now I don’t take them off anymore, I just stack them so I don’t have to remind anyone of what it is I actually do. Needing a change of scenery, I decided to work out of Cafe + Velo. It’s definitely a place I can focus on my tasks while longing to do something more exciting…it’s still pretty early.
Desperately craving human interaction at the moment. Today’s focus is happiness. Enjoyment of the space I am occupying and the activities I am doing. I’ve never held a job I actually wanted until now. I wake up bright and early for my 8am meetings because I have passion and a purpose, both were seriously lacking in my previous employment endeavors. I’m moving with an end game and I couldn’t be happier. The days are faster and longer at the same time. Why did it take me so long to pursue being my own boss? Fear. I read somewhere that on the other side of fear is everything I ever wanted…imagine that.
Dinner. Papi’s Cuban. The mojitos alone make it worth it.
Day 6 was pretty low key. Again my focuses were power, success and opulence. It blows my mind that I am actually creating an app. My app is my contribution to the project management world. It is a tried and true method of management that has helped me tremendously in my 13 year career as a project manager and a business analyst. PLUS (which is my app name) is not just functions that project managers and teams perform routinely.
I attended a Product Management workshop at General Assembly in PCM or Ponce City Market for those not in the know. I wanted to verify if I was on track with my project since it is a product but I am not a “product manager” and turns out I am. I am willing it into fruition.
This day is going by so fast. I’ve already accomplished so much today. Updated my white board with today’s focuses. Washed my bed linens. Never knew how relaxing that could be. The heat from the dryers on my back. Have you ever pressed against a dryer? The heat is so soothing. Realized that living with myself has it’s benefits. I do laundry. I get my meals cooked sometimes. I play music as loud as I want. I watch what I please. The only noises I hear are the ones I allow in my space.
I was complimented at the laundry. He said I was beautiful. I gracefully said thank you. Project great energy and push through and you will receive the same in return. I’ve dropped a couple pounds. This is symbolic of not only needing to do laundry more but washing away the negativity and bad thoughts that easily overshadow a great situation.
I am all about spreading the word on programs and people I believe in.
The Atlanta Ascend 2020 program partners with nonprofit community lender Access to Capital for Entrepreneurs, Georgia Tech’s ATDC incubator, the Metro Atlanta Chamber of Commerce, and TechSquare Labs, providing an invaluable network for any entrepreneur just starting out.
A three-phase program, it allows education, pre-acceleration, and mentoring to help shape and lift minority-led startups by providing access to resources and networks that may be otherwise hidden.
When reading a blog, rarely do I care what makes you an expert. I do not research your validity, your background, college, current profession or name. It’s the topic Mr. Anderson…it’s what I Googled. It’s what returned. Where are these people searching for answers on your background on the internet?
It smells. It’s the taste. Your facts sound good, prestigious…I didn’t get past the third word in your bio. Keep it short, keep it factual, shrugs. Make it sound like music to my ears.
My phone doesn’t know who you are yet.
- Do you watch The Sopranos? Meadow is loosing her shit
- What is a question that makes you feel good?
- What year is The Sopranos set in?
- What does 4:44 mean?
Kids. There is never a situation I need to be around a child. My roommate has kids and his daughter asked me if I worked for her dad…doing what? What job would I possibly do here that required your dad to kick you out of your bedroom? I was watching a TLC commercial and the chick asked how would you tell identical twins apart and my first thought was to take a picture of the baby with its name written on it and hang it around its neck…that was my first thought.
Anywho, here is some music I liked yesterday. Enjoy your weekend!!
