Hopes and dreams
Have you ever wanted to run your own business? What about have your own blog? I sort of have both, although I’m not sure if I am doing a good job or not. I have not sold anything online in a long time. Here is a quick lesson I learned, though. I was making a granny square Christmas afghan. I put it up on eBay for sale. I thought I would have it done by the time it sold. I was mistaken. I sold the afghan. I’m just fortunate the person who bought it off of me was patient with me. I worked hard for the next month to get that thing done. I’m not going to post anything for sale before I am finished making it. Lesson learned.
I don’t know what I would want to do if it were not for my dreams. I am hoping that someday I can get an actual store for Lil Momma Gifts. I sell things now and them in person. I ordered a candle fundraising kit. It said not up front cost. Well, I have to sell 150 of them in order for them to waive the $65.00 shipping. Honestly, now I am a bit afraid to even try to sell the candles. What if I don’t sell enough and have to pay the $65 dollars. Have you ever done that before? Yes, my self-confidence is a little low. But if you tried and tried and tried and feel like giving up. Well, sometimes I just take a break from things and find other stuff to enjoy for the time being.
I love to read and I enjoy writings. My grammar may suck, but you know I found this really cool program called Grammarly. I like it. I just hope it makes me a better writer. I just have to be patient. If it is meant for me to have my business that it shall happen. I don’t know when. But this is all I can dream of. Just don’t know what to do otherwise.
I just created this page. I was wondering how to become a part of Team Bret Michaels. Now, I finally have a page. https://www.crowdrise.com/ruthpearson2 (I think the 2 is for the fundraiser page and my first name is the profile or the about my page. Not sure why they did it like that.) Check it out when you have time.
I’m passionate about learning about diabetes and how to live a more healthy lifestyle. My mom was a diabetic and she was unable to get the help she needed. I know my father did the best he could, the best he knew how. He didn’t know much about that either. A few years after both my parents had passed my aunts and uncles were becoming diabetes or being diagnosed with diabetes. My mom was in her 40’s when she found out she was a diabetic. I’m almost 40.
So I’m expecting somewhere within the next ten years they could say you are a diabetic. Yes, it is hard trying to figure out what to do. You are probably like oh my God what am I suppose to do. All I can say is take baby steps.
I know I am. With Lil Momma Gifts I hope to raise money for myself and if I get a certain dollar amount I want to help others who are in the same situation my mom was in. I want to be able to help them out. Right now I have to learn to eat better for me so I can later help out you.
If you want to follow along with me go ahead. Sometimes we just have to practice. I’ve had my little business since 2011. It is going slow and I am surely not rich, but I will mention and talk to people about my business. I’m thinking later on if I do get me a place that people will be waiting at the door. Wondering what the hype is all about.
I’m grateful I got me a “real job” it does help. Now I’m doing ok with my money, but I would like to do better. With practice, I’m sure I can get this mastered. I talked to my bank and got a Christmas club savings. They say save money for yourself first, so this is what helps me.
I also have a few “get paid to read email” sites that I belong to. I’m sure the more I talk about it the more people I can get. I get several emails a day from them and I get pennies for each one. Sure I only have like $10. or $15.00 with one, but that is a start and later on I can cash out my money. You have to have like $30.00 in order to request your check. I’ll share with you a few of them that I am with. I have gotten paid before and that is why I am sharing. I won’t share anything unless I have experience from them. But just so you know, what works for me might not work as well for you. You have to try different things out to find out what you can do.
