I’m buying myself a gift.

Today marks another little decision that’s going to help big movements.

I finally, FINALLY created custom email addresses for my business instead of having the students email a regular Gmail account for questions or support.

Such an exciting moment for me!!

It was a bit frustrating because for a day I was going round and round in circle calling Shopify, GoDaddy, and Hostgator! Like twice.

But it helped that the customer service people were so cool, chill, and actually helpful. And if you know me, you know I’m ALL ABOUT customer service.

Welp, and I need to get better about celebrating milestones that mean a lot to me so tonight I will go to da store and buy a few little gifts I’ve been wanting to purchase.

Recently, I’m delved deeper into spiritually and finding inner peace and being happy now and all that yada yada, you probably hear a lot.

But hey it helps me. It really does.

Anyhoo, so I’m buying an amethyst and quartz. Amethyst helps with insomnia and anxious energy. Quartz helps cleanse the soul by regulating the energy around it. It wards off bad energy and is considered a healing stone.

So you probably thought I wasn’t going to get all woowoo but hello, it’s ME!

I’ll take some pictures and post later.

Thank you to anyone out there following my journey to build the life I want. I already have a great, amazing, incredible life. But who doesn’t want more of the good?

Sometimes Divine Timing Is Only 5 Minutes

My heart is beating so fast right now. I feel shaky and light and airy. I am a being with power. I am a being full of abundance. The world, the universe asks what it can give me. And I receive. And I ask what can I give back. I want to serve you God. Serve your highest purpose for me, serve your will.

 

A moment of testimony:

 

For almost a year I have been putting off a certain task in my business. A technical task that I assumed would be too techy.

 

So I pushed it away.


Pushed it away allll the way in the back of my mind. Until days passed, then weeks, then months. And I succumbed into this was how it was going to be. This was one thing I cannot solve.

 

7 months passed by that I left this task unattended. I finally decided to buckle up. And on one weekend I decided, I have one goal this weekend. One goal, one intent for the next two days. And it is to finally tackle this task no matter what it takes, and no matter how long. I will sit in front of this computer screen for as long as it takes.

 

I woke up (or nudged by God) around 5am that Saturday morning. I wasn’t working even 30 minutes when I figured out the task. Figured out how to complete it and move forward.

 

Something that I had been waiting for months upon months upon months, because I had convinced myself that this technical task was much too difficult.

 

I lied to myself until I believed it. And the fear became contagious and it enveloped me, it held me, it cloaked me, it killed me. A death.

 

But from death comes rebirth.

 

So I decided to push a little more.

 

Yet, when I finally decided to face this tiny task, I was presented with the utmost ease. I was able to set up the technical process for my website in less than 30 minutes. It was probably closer to 15 minutes.

 

As I write this, I feel this strange energy of disbelief and comfort and love. And taken care of by the universe. The universe truly has my back.

 

It shows me how much I am loved, how much it wants me to be prosperous. God I hear you. God I see you. God we are talking.


(Sidebar: I’ll write another post on this but everyday when I meditate I ask to feel God to converse with God and I’m realizing this is how the universe is speaking to me. This is how she is opening up dialogue with this soul called Grace.)

 

The ease of it all is quite incredible, quite magnificent and only of God.

 

Shortly after setting up that to do list on my website. I went to increase the price of one of my products because I realized it was undervalued.

 

I realized I was too afraid to charge what it was worth. And I told myself not to be afraid. I began to believe the worth in my products.

 

I believe in the value I am bringing to these students.

 

I raised the price and then …

 

5 minutes

4 minutes

3 minutes

2 minutes

1 minute

 

Passed by and I received an email that a new order had been placed. Yes, a new order for the product whose price I just rose.

 

5 minutes later the universe nodded her head at me and say, “Here you are, my love. You are moving in the right direction.”

 

God just thinking about it makes me tremble, makes my breath short and choppy.

 

I am of God, in anyway I imagine it. As long as my intentions are in alignment with the Highest Good, with His Will, and in knowing I want to serve the world.

 

I am everything I wish to be. I already am.

 

In this moment.

 

Wealth. Abundance. Love. Joy. Confidence. Power.

 

I am THAT. I am.

$3,053.70 in 90 Days – My little online business that could

It’s hard, man.

I wanted to keep a journal of how my business is growing so I can look back at it and know the little things is what got me to the big thing. Also, so I can help others to the same.

Starting an online business is not fricking easy.

There’s more hard work than money.

Get that. Read it again.

There is more effort involved than money, bay bay!clap emoji

Well in the beginning anyway, they (successful ultra-rich entrepreneurs) say it gets easier as you progress. And I am really looking forward to the day, I can say bye bye to my (actually pretty awesome) corporate job.

However, for now, it’s time to grind.

I have struggled (AND STILL STRUGGLE) with procrastination every single effing day. Sometimes there will be days that I waste and I do NOTEENG! Not a damn thing.

How I play nice with procrastination:

The way I coax procrastinating Grace to work, is convince her to do one little thing. Just post a picture on the Facebook page. Just edit the first paragraph of that document…and it usually leads me to doing more work.

But sometimes, I just stop there, I just stop at the little thing, and guess what? I don’t feel bad or ashamed…because hey, I did some thing.

What business are you in?

It’s actually not fancy or sexy or anything…it’s actually quite BOWRING! I sell e-study guides to students who are taking a standardized test.

Yeah…that’s it.

But pretty damn profitable.

People are begging for my stuff and begging for more study guides and tutoring and all the things.

It’s overwhelming to keep up with everything but I literally know there are hundreds of thousands of dollars waiting for me on the other. God, it’s fucking palpable. The money is there looking at me, tapping her foot, winking at me, “we’re waiting for you.”

How did you get people to your site?

I followed ZTL principles on guest posting…and get this: I’ve only guest posted on two websites…that’s it!

That’s the only marketing I’ve done for this product. The need is really there so I really attribute it that factor but students really need a solid study guide that helps them pass this standardized test. I can only imagine when I actually put forth real effort in marketing the product, what it will look like for my business…because honestly, I do nothing in regards to marketing.

I wrote those two articles about one to two months ago and haven’t done anything since, yet sales roll in every day.

Did you really make that much money in 90 days?

Well, fine, it was 99 days but 90 sounds better on the title, GAWD!

But in that regard, I also have to tell when this all started: 6 FUCKING YEARS AGO! LOL! Yes, berry sad.

Seriously, I first had this idea in 2011, and sold a few study guides and then just stopped because it became overwhelming and I panicked.

I panicked for being too good, too successful, too rich. What if I have to pay a lot of taxes? What if someone sues me? What if life isn’t any better on the other side? What if I’m rich and sad? What if? What if?! WHAT IF?!

6 years later, I’m back on the train and pushing every goddamn day…pushing against these thoughts. Every day. Every day I’m saying, I think I can, I think I can, I think I can.

And sometimes I can’t…but then the next day arrives.

What now?

I hate writing but I need to buck up and write more guest articles and YouTube tutorials for my students. I plan to double the monthly income by the end of the year.

There’s also a lot of background noise going on like talks of my company’s jobs moving to India so I also need to focus on securing my job here, even if it’s with another company.

Yet, it serves as a wonderful and beautiful reminder that we’re all so dispensable.

So make yourself indispensable for other people.

Provide value others can’t, in the way and method only YOU can.

Don’t do things others can do.

Don’t just follow directions, anybody can do that.

Create! Make something! And let it pull you to where you’re meant to be!
