You Have To Have a Digital Currency – I am not talking Crypto

Hello World,

You have to have a digital currency at today’s time. Although, I am all for Crypto – buy your Etherium and monitor the trends. However, I am not speaking about that. I am saying, that you have to have a following in today’s generation to keep up. A following on social media, and other digital platforms. Anything that gives you a positive traction towards your content.

The following actually validates your work and brings you more exposure to your brand. This helps your business grow with word of mouth. Word of mouth is the strongest form of advertising and marketing your brand. First and foremost, it’s free, sceond word of mouth usually comes from a reliable source such as your friends and family. Hence, it builds trust quicker than other branding techniques.

The number of following you have becomes a digital currency. The more you have the more valuable you are, the more work you get, and the more fortune you make. That’s one reason why people make a lot of money doing affiliate marketing and or starting a YouTube channel while posting daily. Posting daily creates traction.

Traction is important for the content you put out. It gets you notice. But the key to creating traction is consisitency, schedule, persistency and quality. You can’t give up, no matter how boring it is! It’s a part of building a brand, along with putting out good quality content for validation and shares.

So if you are any type of creative or business owner, I need you to focus on your social media strategy. A strategy good enough to bring you traction. At first you will just receive followings/views but, in the long run it will make you money.

Stagnant – Stuck – Anxiety – What it Takes to Improve Your Situation

Hello World, What does it really take to look past your “stuck” situation right now? It takes experience of going through it a couple of times and then saying, okay I take ownership of my situation!

Feeling Guilty When There is Nothing to do…

Hello World,

Be Positive, Patient and Persistent… is the motto of all the blogs I have posted and I really mean it. Sometimes it is hard to be all that and when it is, you need to take a breather. Take some time off and then get back at your goals and creativity.

I suffer from feeling guilt when I have free time, which is a patter of workaholism I am not really proud of. I have used working a lot as a coping mechanism to get over a loved family memeber. I worked and worked. I am not complaining, it helped me a lot. I grew my skills. I read a lot. I expanded my wealth in skill. Though, it is amazing in one aspect, feeling guilty when there is free time is not as healthy.

You need to relax when you have free time. You need to find the balance between work and personal life. I am still on my journey to actually finding the balance as any sort of project or work fulfills me. That’s why, I encourage you to take breaks, take vacations and turn off your work when you do need it. No, need to feel guilt and if you do, just remind yourself that work will always be there.

Story Time – Retirement Calculator

Hello World,

I am very career oriented and financially savvy individual and I like to believe everyone is the same. However, I am writing this post because, I was speaking to one of my friends and she is struggling with her finanances. I was trying to ask her more questions to see how she can save in order to pay for her bills.

She told me, she was struggling to pay off her credit cards, her brothers wedding was coming up so she bought some clothes. Then she said, she had bought a 8,000 dollars used car which looks really fancy and nice from outside, but turned out to be costly as it keeps breaking down. On top of that she has clinical anxiety for which, she can’t work full time. She also has school loans.

This is a vicious cycle! I am sharing this story that way you all avoid making this mistake. She doesn’t earn a lot with her part time job, she has to pay for gas, her car keeps breaking down, and she has a lot of loan. She says, she is not living her “best life”. When I asked her what does “best life” mean to her, her response was, “being financially free”. My follow up question was, what are you doing to resolve this? She said, she is trying to get a higher paying job.

But in the scenario above, what is one thing that she can eliminate in order to start saving right away? Did you say the broken car? Then great minds think alike!

A car is an expensive expense. You have to pay for gas, maintenance, and insurance. If you do not need a car, then don’t get one.

I went onto asking her about her retirement plans, she said, she doens’t think that far ahead. What about you all? Do you think that far ahead? Will you have enough money in your bank account by the time you are 60 to live off of it for the rest of your life when you cannot earn anymore?

If you didn’t plan that far then you definitely should plan your retirement. Here is a calculator that shows exactly how much you need to be putting away in order to save for your retirement:

Trade Mark for your Brand

Hello World,

I always want to provide informative content you can use to excel in your personal and professional growth.

I am the kind of personality who had to learn on her own and find her own coaches and mentors. I had to put in research for all the knowledge I have equiped over the years and I am still growing and learning.

Today I want to know if you are growing your brand? If you are, then check out these two websites which will help you locate Trade Marks for your brand. You can go on these websites and search for your Brand name and or a slogan.

USPTO – https://www.uspto.gov/

TradeMarkia – https://www.trademarkia.com/

Once, you searched the trade mark item you are looking for two things!

  1.  If the trade mark is “Dead” or “Live” 
  2. Detailed description of the industry the brand name/slogan was used for.

If the trademark is LIVE then you would not be able to use the trademark!

Traction and Future of Blogs

Hello World,

I just wanted to list out few tips and tricks for bloggers who want to earn money from blogging. This may be useful information to you or you may already know this. But I thought I share anyways!

I think it goes without saying, if you are a new blogger, you shouldn’t go into writing with the idea that you will make money from it. It is a process. Blogging takes 2 to 3 years before you start making real money from it. You have to be consistent and you have to learn about SEO. You have to know how to get traction from different platfroms, Instagrm, TikTok, Pinterest, Facebook, Google, Twitter, etc. 

The initial step is to look up Google Ad Sense : https://www.google.com/adsense/start/ 

Google Ad Sense, will not earn you money right away. You have to meet a certain threshold to actually earn money. However, it’s a start and means. When you start growing your followers and readers, you will have people clicking on the ADs.

Blogging in a tradtional sense can be compared to Magazines. Yes! Managzines earn their bucks through sponsored Ads. Ads depends on traction and followers hence, the main thing is to creating a flow where you can find audiences.

  1. Success Tip – Write about things you are interested in and don’t follow trend! You have to create your own brand and niche. I like talking about Business/Motivation/Money and Finance and mental health. That’s what share my expertise on, on these blogs. If you follow trends that you are not interested in, then it would be a road to failure.

2. Succes Tip –  Answer a question! Everyone has an opinion. Simply sharing your opinon does not help anyone. In this blog, I am sharing your expectation and “how to” make money from blogging. I am answering a question some of you may have.

3. Success Tip –  Keep your blogs around one page, 1,500 words! TikTok and instagram stories, along with Amzon’s same day shipping has made our attention sapn smaller over the years. We don’t have patience to read an entire article. Keep it informative and short!

4. Success Tip – Be consistent and don’t stop writing! It takes 2 years+ for you to grow a blog and gain traction. 

Future 

Big one! How will blogging looking in the future and how to adapt to it?

You have to research on Voice key word search! Amazon Alexa and Google mini can answer everyone’s questions now! 51% of people use home voice control systems to answer very specific questions and how to’s so they don’t really need bloggers to answer their day to day questions.

However, things such as financial planning and advices on other subjects that require more indepth detail will be the trend for bloggers. Understanding what people are reading about will be the key to success in the future!

Hope that was helpful!

Intentions are Cheap

Hello World,

You may find this funny but I actually found the phrase “intentions are cheap” from a Harvard Business Review article about strategy while working on my MBA assignment. Even in business, intentions are cheap.

I want to ask you about your feelings towards this phrase. How do you feel about this idea?

When someone forgets to get a gift for you on your birthday but really wanted to, you would say something polite back to him or her, “it was the intention that mattered!” But, in reality, No it didn’t!  Because, INTENTIONS are CHEAP and you cannot verify some ones intent!

This applies to your everyday goal settings as well. You intent on losing 10 pounds, but sorry even Harvard Business Review are challenging your intentions.  Intentions do not mean anything until you process it.  Even when you start testing your intentions, other obstacles/situations/issues=–you name it, may arise while you are applying your goals to challenge your initial intent.  When you test your goals, you realize that they need modifications along the way.

Your initial intent never remains and you learn along the way. This idea helps you combat fear.  Some people have many goals and intentions; however, they never process them due to fear.  Now that you know your intentions grow as you apply them, why should you fear?  Either way, you are creating a learning opportunity for yourself.

Therefore, I want you to just go for your desires and work hard. If you have, “intentions” then let’s bring them to reality.

I hope you are following my 5 power goal steps to complete your ultimate goal while getting your short term goals done TODAY!

Woman need to be Financially Stable

Okay ladies this one is for you! I get it, we look for career oriented partners with a stable career, growth prospects and a lot of fortune. Judgemental people often think of this as being materialistic. However, what we are seeking is security and stability in our investments—that’s what every woman looks for while searching for a partner. However, some of you spend a lot of time looking for those qualities rather than working on your own development and stability.

It’s saddens me to see some woman still struggling with financial stability and some who are still not financially literate. You think I am kidding, but woman in some households can’t even break down their mortgage and various taxes that are attached to owning a property. This is because they are blindly dependant on their husbands to take care of the finances. Yes, your partner may be a wonderful person and they most likely don’t mind taking care of the finances on your behalf but you still need to know the details of the process.

Ladies you need to be par if not more than your partner. When I am in a relationship, I always make sure to be in a healthy competition with my partner. This way we are both motivated and have high respect for each other. I own 3 properties and I did it on my own, this is what healthy competition got me and I am proud of it. I understand some of you choose not to work because your spouse works. Yet you have to still make sure you know that your spouse has a backup plan if there is ever a loss of income. That means you need to know all about what’s coming in the house, what the expenses are and how much you are spending. Yes, budget!

Please ladies, make sure you have your own emergency account in the bank where you have 6 months of survival savings. This is a must, must, must and a 101 to personal finance. This is your rainy day money. Life is full of uncertainties and in today’s day you can’t dependant on anyone. You have to be a self-sufficient, strong, independent woman. Spending is easy! Saving, not so much! I need you to be saving though!

Those red bottoms look great and the new Prada purse all the Instagram bloggers are carrying look even better but sorry, we have to check if that fits your budget before you jump the gun! Cut your expenses ladies! Let’s work on investing in ourselves and our future. Did I tell you I am doing my MBA? (Yes I have, I mention it in all of my blogs). That Prada purse can wait, it won’t gain you a return on your investment. So you have to invest smart that has returns, invest in stocks, Bitcoin or property and or better yet yourself by learning a focus that adds to your competitive edge.

You need to work hard girls. Trust me, it feels good to have your own. Take risks girls, don’t get use to a casual, dependant lifestyle. It won’t be good for you in the long run. Money is not everything but self-growth and practicing personal financial hygiene is important!

Please feel free to contact me if you have any question regarding investments and or finance,

Thank you,

DLA
