Most people do not go after their dreams in life. The fear of the unknown is too much for some. The idea of taking on new things all the time and never being 100% comfortable again is just something people do not want to engage in, but they will tell you a much different story if the Powerball gets huge again won’t they?
If there is an easy way out in life they will take it, never mind putting in the hours and learning how to better yourself because that is just too much effort isn’t it? I recently had an online Hater come at me and they said that I do not value hard work, They said “Real Hard Work” meaning that if I do not lift heavy things, or get dirty during the day then my job isn’t shit and neither is my work ethic. This person told me that its easy to sit behind a keyboard and talk about goals, but its another thing to actually get up off your ass and go work for them and achieve them, so he was calling me out!
I work from home ladies and gentlemen, I own four businesses that I control from my office desk and my typical day is not very typical at all, in fact my normal days are enough to drive someone insane. I think people would rather jump out of a window Vs living a day in my life but you can be the judge of that here today in this blog.
I am going to show you what my day was like yesterday. All my days are filled with activities to keep me busy. Trust me when I say this, what you are about to read is real. Most of the people who work with me in business know that I never sleep and I have weird hours I operate in so just keep that in mind as you go through this insane list of things on my daily schedule.
(Disclaimer) This life pattern or routine is not for everyone! Do not hate on me if I seem to be over worked because this is how I like things to be and because in my mind if I do not have things going on constantly, then that means I have stopped dreaming. I repeat..This is not going to be lifelong pattern for me, I work hard now because I choose to. The following schedule may seem a bit insane but for some of you Haters out there, at least now you know what Embracing The Grind looks like so here ya go!

I normally do (3) Five hour time blocks in a day, some days are different from others because I have to make time for students and make time for business calls when they come in. Sometimes a business call can eat up 15-20 minute of my day, but no matter what, I stick to my schedule and I cross off everything on my list each day no matter how long it takes me to get it all done. If it takes me 12 hours or 17 hours, I don’t let up until it is all done.
I don’t expect anyone to live like this, I have a lot going on right now and my personal time is something I have chosen to give up in order to accomplish the things I want to do. I sacrifice a lot, more than what most people are willing to sacrifice so I just cringe at the idea that a hater could ever say to me that I do not value hard work. Try keeping pace with me every day Biotch and let’s see how you do!….(Biotch is slang for the word BITCH).
Don’t worry about me! I have had lots of fun in life, maybe too much! but right now this is what it looks like behind the scenes at my house pretty much everyday until I hit certain numbers in my businesses and once that happens, then I will make all kinds of time for more fun stuff like what most normal people do every weekend.
I don’t know about you ladies and gentlemen but when I want something in life, I sell out 100% to the work involved with getting those things done. I am lucky in the fact that I can do so much right from my home, the internet is an amazing thing.
