As of October 1st, 2020 here is the finance progress:
I need to get recurring revenue up to $5k a month, this amount would “save my family”. We could pay mortgage, buy food, and have a little left over for savings. The main way I’m planning on getting the recurring revenue is by providing value with the I Will Thrive Project and Music, and having people excited enough about it that they want to become my patron and finance my work on Patreon. I’ll be able to breathe a little lighter once I get there. I am also building a number of passive income entities to get there!
I am committed to thriving into the future and living life on my own terms. I have a family of 5 kids and I refuse to accept any limitations for the life I want to build for them. I remember once hearing Dean Graziosi speak, and the freaking dude made me cry. What he said resonated deeply with me. He was talking about his childhood, being in poverty, and how he would not let his kids live a life like that. He wanted his kids to have options. I’m in the same dang bucket. I grew up poor, I wasn’t raised with a knowledge of money. That is changing and changing now.
I was laid off from a job in the tech space because of the Coronavirus pandemic. This circumstance is pushing me to change my life in a drastic way. I made a vow to make a million dollars, and to not cut my hair until I get there. You can read more about the vow HERE. It is important to understand how I feel about money:
Financial Health: There is zero priority to be rich for the sake of being rich. All worldly wealth will fade away and provides no true happiness or meaning. However, with my extremely poor childhood, I am motivated to pursue wealth. I will become financially independent to enable me to help others and provide freedom to pursue more meaning with my passions in music, writing, and film. Be smart, don’t waste excessive amounts of time on mindless tasks. Being financially independent will take calculated and consistent efforts. I know I can do it. Read and learn to better understand what it will take.
Thank you for joining me on this wild journey! Party on! Finance on!
