Right now I’m living as a minimalist and adhere to a strict budget. I sell trivial, material possessions I’ve accumulated during a period of time where I was owed significant money, and find convenient jobs that offer high pay for little work, usually two to three times a week, nothing detrimental to my focus here.
I utilize what little I have efficiently, while refining networking strategies (both online and offline) to establish financial security as a life coach providing counselling via one on one sessions and as a writer compiling the writing archived here into cohesive lessons on both e-book format and paperback. I’m also in the process of developing my youtube channel and a clothing line with dramatic, symbolic imagery and insightful messages to go along with them.
Once all of this takes off over the course of the next year, I’ll be tweaking the online site here into a community for others to contribute their own insights and creativity with “self-empowerment through critical thinking” as the foundation.
These alternative, strategic methods of maintaining income are a testament to the discipline and analytical disposition that I advocate, and is not only a convenience to my own personal sustenance, but acts as an example that derails the cynical notion that submission to the status quo is the only option.
I have never in my life undertaken something so wildly ambitious, and acclimating myself to this magnitude of responsibility has been incredibly overwhelming, but I would rather find stress in my ambition, than consent to a lifestyle of self-disgust where I perpetually mourn my lack of initiative.
