How Avengers End Game Taught Me to Pursue My Dreams.

WARNING: IF YOU HAVE YET TO SEE  AVENGERS ENDGAME, DO NOT READ THIS POST. THERE WILL BE SPOILERS.

I am not a big Marvels Cinematic Universe buff. I watch superhero movies like mostly everyone else, asking my kids to explain plot holes and concepts I sometimes miss. And while I only watched a few of the Avengers movies, I have come to appreciate the creative genius behind the beloved and groundbreaking comics. After watching Infinity Wars, I was pumped for Endgame like the rest of the Marvel fanbase. What I didn’t anticipate are all the parallels I would notice between the Law of Attraction and the Time Travel Paradox the superheroes faced. And I especially didn’t expect to be inspired to pursue my dreams at all cost, including bending reality by watching a comic adapted into a movie.

Though Quantum Physics scholars are all hell-bent on arguing whether the Time Travel Paradox faced in the movie is a possibility, my attention was squarely focused on the law of attraction themes and how mindset and belief mixed with a little science and wealth can help people accomplish anything.

How To Fit Your Dreams Into Your Business Model.

The only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. Steve Jobs

The inclusion of this quote is by no means an endorsement of the fake it till you make it mindset. In fact, my views on this quote are you must take a step toward what you love and continue to develop it until you have accomplished expertise and abundance that allows you to serve from your overflow.

The law of attraction is very popular these days and one thing I have seen repeatedly in life and business is those who do not live in a way that lights up their hearts burn out quickly and die even quicker.

How To Increase Your Self Worth And Choose Your Ideal Client…While Still Being Imperfect

Did You know that low self-esteem is the root cause of underpricing your services?

So I recently fired a client who gave me anxiety. I was so relieved to get rid of her though she’s only my second client. I had quoted a lower price than I was comfortable with because, well, I wimped out. So being rid of her was good for me. Now she’s begging me to do the work (I guess she figured out the hourly rates for copywriters were at the minimum twice what I quoted.) Anywhooo, I’m almost tempted to double my quote and take her on, but I know that would be bad for my health and self worth. Please talk me down from the ledge of cheap hoedom.😿😿😿 #Iknowmyworth #Iknowmyworth #Iknowmyworth #Butlegomindstormbeexpensiveaf #hallpppppp 

The above was I post I wrote to my Facebook mentor group, desperately seeking guidance from what I now call the “cheap hoe syndrome,”  as it tried to suck me in during my early freelancing days. I was newly restarting my freelance business, with children to feed and not enough money coming in and I was desperate. The client I referenced in the post was a nightmare! She was demanding, condescending, disrespectful and had no regard for my policies, personal time or humanity. On first meeting said client, she made sure to let me know to call her by her government granted credentials and wanted to know my background. In retrospect, I had seen all the red flags, but like a thirsty romantic with rose-colored glasses, I dove in, willing to sell my soul for cents on the dollar.

How To Create Systems To Grow Your Brand and Improve User Experience

Understanding business processes and systems.

“In order for any business to succeed, it must first become a system so that the business functions exactly the same way every time down to the last detail”

(Rick Harshaw, Monopolize Your Marketplace).

I haven’t always been interested in creating systems in my business. In fact, when faced with the question “what does the process involve?” No matter how many times I had completed the steps to a particular task, I would hem and haw trying to figure out the correct answer and steps. 

Months ago, I mentioned my intention to level up my business in a mentor group and was wisely directed by many of the high-income earners to systemize my business. At first, I had no idea how on earth I would do something so great, but I set out on the journey to convert my hustle into a true business. Since then, I have become more coherent about what I do and how I do it. And my confidence level when asked about my system or processes is much improved. Now, whenever I proposition someone, I am certain to include what the process involves and how it can improve their lives or business and that helps me to be more professional and trustworthy to prospects.

First, a bit of background on what business systems are and why you need to not only define your processes but analyze and revise them until they automate your business. A process is a standard set of steps taken to complete a task. And a system, according to businessdictionary.com, is “A methodical procedure or process that is used as a delivery mechanism for providing specific goods or services to customers.” In more simple terms, a business system refers to the set of processes that help your business effectively create value for your customers. So, as an example, when creating a blog post, I use a list of steps including idea generation, keyword research, headline analysis and outlining to get to the end result. These steps have worked for me and help keep me on track to creating blog posts in a timely manner. This process is a part of my marketing system which is made up of many such processes.  Got it? Good, now let’s see how having your own systems can make everyone’s lives easier.
