First of all, I want to say thank you for being here. I really appreciate you.
Well this week, we wrote a lot of post. They were about being broke and miserable, getting more money, having a successful business and being smart on the net. OK, they were my mistakes, but I think it’s advice we all could use. So in case you missed them, here are five awesome posts (just click on the blue words to go to the post) in our weekly wrap up.
Please feel free to share this post with your friends, family and that one sorry ass person we all love, but really needs the advice. Remember the only limit you have is the one you have placed on yourself. Think and be limitless. Have a great day.
People ask me about blogging all of the time. I’ve been blogged since 2013 and I love it. I’ve succeed and failed, but the best thing about blogging is that I’m constantly learning about people, life and of course blogging.
Since my audience is Black women; if you want to focus solely on Black women, it’s not lucrative unless you are doing gossip, religion, pop culture, relationships, fashion, etc. The problem with these niches is they’re over-saturated, but if you can make your content better I say go for it. You don’t have to reinvent the wheel, you just have to make the wheel better. Make your blog better. I just do my thing which is business and entrepreneurship everything! I refuse in the name of He-Man to let you be a broke blogger. Read more here.

There’s one thing most companies aren’t doing. No, it’s not a product or a service. Heck, this is the product or service. The one thing is a question. The one thing people and companies should ask is, “What can we do to make people’s lives easier?”
Why ask, “What can we do to make people’s lives easier?” Life is hard. Many people of go to jobs they hate and are around people they don’t like for a paycheck. If your product or service can help people escape from that reality you will be successful. If your product or service can make people feel good about themselves, you will be successful. If your product can make the process easier with just one click you will be successful. Read the rest here.
Lawd, the holidays are coming and that can only mean one thing. Expanding waistlines, credit lines and debt, debt, debt, debt! I understand why we do it. We want the best for our loved ones so we go above and beyond while putting ourselves in a financial hole. We pay it off in six to eight months only to get right back into debt during the next holiday season. It’s an endless cycle of debt and you’re being ripped off. Look, you don’t have to go into debt for the holidays. You have options. Why not get a seasonal job? Here are 15 companies hiring today. Check out the list here.
