Hey! I’m starting a travel club to visit a few different cities in 2019. Just something I thought of to get people together.

Some will be kid friendly for the moms that find it hard to travel. Some will be couple friendly but not mandatory, or I should say “male friendly” lol. I have male friends and I don’t want to exclude them; I will just specify which destinations will accompany men/kids. They’re kinda the same anyway lol.

-Must be open minded! No bad attitudes allowed or you will not be welcome on other trips!

– The idea is to save money on lodging so be prepared to share an Airbnb. (Basically a house that we rent and you have your own room but share common space with the other women.)

-Also ideal for women traveling solo. You don’t have to know the other women on the trip! Initially it’s all people I know and people they know; very intimate. Bring friends but please inform me first so that we can discuss it together.

-Have fun! Each city will have a light itinerary but will mostly involve great attitudes and laughs. I don’t know what the food will be like, party scene if any, or culture since these cities (abroad) I’ve never been to. I’m just bringing the fun and so should you. *****Lesson learned: By light itinerary I mean some “fun” isn’t for everyone. Please read the description of events before agreeing to respect my time organizing and others splitting the cost. Once you agree the event is nonrefundable and I do not plan on entertaining complaints. If an event does not appeal to you ahead of time I can help with finding another tourist event to pass the time for us to meet up again. #Openmind is what traveling is all about right?

-You are required to purchase your airfare and I can help find cheaper tickets. Purchase them whenever you’re ready, but tickets are cheaper further away and during the middle of the week. Pro-tip: Driving is not recommended for a vacation, unless it’s a short distance. Also, try to travel in the smallest group possible to enhance your travel experience. Unforeseen circumstances happen on a long road trip/airport that bring out the worse in people.

– The end of year party is a bonus and is only for those who’ve traveled with us. Please respect the invite only and lodging at my house is first come first serve. Kennyon wants to do an Airbnb in the city so it might be there. This is a thank you for trusting my travel vision and keeping an open mind.

Can I get (back) into business?

My first job was at 14 years old working at a hair salon (illegally) washing har for a few dollars each client.  It was not a lot of money to the average person, but for a young girl that had nothing living in the projects wearing hand-me-downs it was a LOT of money.  I wanted to work really hard, mainly because I admired the shop owner who was a small business owner running her own faithful clients, accounting, booking etc all while being courteous and professional.  My next job was for even more money, working for minimum wage at McDonald’s.  Man that was eye-opening because the average person, brutally speaking, does not want to work hard but for some reason I did!  The more I worked the more money I made!  But I always wondered whose signature that was at the bottom of my check I mean I literally thought Ronald McDonald owned it (don’t judge me because I’m pretty sure there are kids in the hood right now with no exposure that think the same).  Then one day it happened.  The owners walked in to check on the re-order of supplies, cut a check, and left.  It was an older couple, regular clothes with a hint of Chanel and finesse.  I knew at that moment I was going to be signing checks also but had no education to know where to start.

I opened a business in 2013, a small online boutique in an over saturated market.  My name as my niche in addition to being photogenic I gained slight popularity with a few business opportunities I was not prepared for.  With the market being so over saturated it was still hard to stand out, and to be honest a couple of social media influencers were taking advantage of small businesses like mine.  I was afraid to take a break but I knew I couldn’t handle the customers coming in with the adjustments I needed so I decided to take a break.  Now my self-doubt has come over in an even more saturated clothing market.  Somehow I’ve convinced myself that is just fine!  With work ethic anything is possible!

We CAN get back into business!  With the lessons learned, of course!  To start a business there are a plethora of websites that offer advice! Books, YouTube you name it.  I will offer limited advice here because I believe advice and how to’s are on a case by case basis and is seriously relative.  Then I will plant advice here on my website in blogs on what worked for me and what I’ve seen work for others.

-You have to tailor advice on your business needs.  Do not think you are behind or lost because of another success.  Every business are different goals and most importantly, different budgets!  It’s ok to have a smaller budget because whats important is your niche.

-Organize.  Plan, write a business plan, then plan again!

-Lastly, walk out on entrepreneurial faith!

Here is the planner organizer that I use to organize my life!  I write down all of my appointments, bill due dates, and work times in the calendar.  In the journal I jot down ideas, random thoughts and business plans ideas.  Click the photo to purchase or look for different options.

It sounds simple because it is.  Thanks for reading and of course Contact with Questions or Concerns!
