The Truth Of How Entrepreneurs Think

What made you start your entrepreneurial journey? Was it done out of passion, the need for freedom, to build a legacy for your children, or did the pandemic play a part?

No matter your story it’s very possible to experience days where you question EVERYTHING. Working for yourself can indeed be a roller coaster financially and mentally.

When you find yourself getting down, reflect on why you started. Refreshing your memory can help you push aside those negative thoughts.

3 Things To Do Before You Quit

I’m different. And I’m not being cliche when I say this. When I held a secular job before I applied, I would research the company background, look up the employee satisfaction rates, and I knew my goal would be to move up in 3-6 months.

When I found myself no longer satisfied with what I thought the job was initially offering, I made an exit plan. I researched similar positions that paid more, as well as higher positions I could be hired for based on my credentials.

Being self employed is not for the faint of heart. Heck, truthfully, being an entrepreneur isn’t for everyone. But if you are looking to step out on faith and work for yourself plan it out in a calculated manner.

6 Signs You Will Not Be Defeated

For years social media has made winning look easy. Rarely do you get the behind the scenes look at how your favorite influencers really made it.

As the economy has taken a downturn many are seeing that it’s not as simple as making a post and people automatically paying for your product(s).

What’s not talked about is the many who often feel defeated, or those are jealous of others when they get online.

Life is a puzzle and the most important piece is your mindset. Master that and it’s smooth sailing from here.

Millions Of Workers Have Quit Over Rude Bosses And Lack Of Motivation

Nearly two-thirds of those said the pandemic prompted their decision to quit – as it made them realize life is too short to stay in a role they don’t enjoy.

Millions of workers have left their job over the last year due to lack of motivation and progression, being overworked – and rude bosses.

A study of 2,000 adults found almost a fifth had left their job out of choice in the last 12 months alone, with a further 22 percent having done so in the past five years.

One in ten of those have quit as recently as the last six months, with an additional 16 percent planning to leave in the upcoming year.

Among the top 30 reasons for doing so include working hours that don’t fit with commitments outside of work, and management not being interested in staff wellbeing.

As many as 42 percent raised their concerns with employers before choosing to leave – but 30 percent of them said nothing changed as a result.

The study, commissioned by employee experience platform Edenred, also highlighted what made people want to stay in a job – including having a manageable workload, flexible hours, and a supportive line manager who appreciates their work.

Facebooks Collapsing Rebirth: Countdown To The Metaverse

​About two weeks ago I posted on a private social media page how Facebook was toxic for individuals with anxiety, PTSD, and other mental health conditions. In comparison, I urged those seeking professional and serious business connections in the cannabis and crypto industries to use LinkedIn. The social media platform has a high number of business owners and content creators who publish valuable and worthwhile posts. People conduct themselves more seriously on LinkedIn is what I have noticed, and it’s been this way consistently for years. 

It wasn’t until this past summer when a tragic event occurred in my life that I transitioned to using LinkedIn again. I actually turned off the notifications of invite requests only at the start of this year. I would let them pile up in my inbox knowing one day I’d sign on again. But as Facebook showed me memories that I didn’t want to view instead of searching their settings to see if there was an option to turn it off, I decided it was time for our virtual relationship to end.

About a year ago I had a pair of earrings that I designed to go viral on Facebook and it was the largest amount of orders that I had ever received. As an artist and designer, it felt great to receive recognition for my work. My inbox started to get flooded with women asking for my website. As I responded as quickly as I could, Facebook started to block any messages that I sent with a link. They notified me of 48 hours when I could send a link in my messages again. I know, I know spam prevention control. But I was not initiating these messages, I was only replying.

After this magnificent event occurred in my art life, I was encouraged (motivated) to share more. Despite the message situation. I mean, that is what the platform encourages to make the algorithm work for you, right? Share! Share Share! The more I shared, the fewer views it said I had. I tried scheduling posts, posting organically, and I even tried ads. Facebook would offer $10-$50 credit for creating an ad but I would never see the credits after I paid.

I posted in “professional” art and business groups but over the last year “follow for follow train” posts would take over, some groups would not allow you to share your business link (which made no sense to me), some groups let scammers comment on everyone’s post, and in others, the admins would demand you follow them on Instagram before approving your post. The biggest hustle I witnessed was attractive women group admins charging $10-$50 for you to post in their group.

At this point, I was only using Facebook to promote my art, and the free and paid methods weren’t working on my behalf. 

Facebook made saying goodbye easy.

Over the years I, like many others, questioned the violent viral videos, the completely off recommendations for suggested friends, how you could select not to see content but it was still appearing, the spike in irrelevant ads, and the disappearance of posts from those on your friendslist.

Facebook outgrew itself.

Too many new (ideas) services, options, and constant updates. Not enough focus on bettering society with such a powerful and accessible platform. The scariest thing about the recent outage was the thought of the millions of people refreshing their app for hours who didn’t even have a business but just wanted to have access to their feed. Pointless feed checking. An unhealthy social media addictive habit that started because of Facebook.

On October 28th Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg will continue the conversation of the company rebrand, new name, and his focus on building the metaverse at the annual Connect conference.

There will be fake outrage by the Facebook social media world that has in my opinion dumbed down the smartest of individuals. ​Mark has stated that he wants to focus on the younger generation. I don’t know if this is his way of trying to give back to the global social media community after the damage Facebook has done but as the once viral saying goes: Hide Your Kids.
