I’m trying download a version of Microsoft Office that works on a Mac since my University no longer supports my old version… I dodged a bullet! I have a new MacBook Air and for a moment I got scared I purchased a license that required a DVD drive.. PHEW!

Today was an interesting day. No I did not get lucky and find a random $20 bill laying on the ground but I also did not end up in a sink hole.

I woke up feeling with a high this morning. My family helped me decorate my new place and I felt so lucky to be on my own. Once I got into work it was back to the grind of figuring out how to conquer the business world. I know one day I will figure it out and hit my stride. I am a perfectionist and  while I understand I am new that doesn’t excuse my performance.

See you all tomorrow!

It has been a couple days! While I try and post every day I got a little sick this week so I did not muster up the discipline to make a post. I am really struggling to get up early. I’ve been listening to a lot of motivational videos but I’m trying to find that one dominant reason to say no that voice telling me to hit the snooze button. Lately that voice has been winning the battle but it won’t win the war.

Today at the gym I lost my cross 🙁 I am hoping someone finds it and turns it in! Tomorrow I have a special Olympics event all day and I look forward to giving back!

Today was a cold one here in Wisconsin! I was productive with learning something new for work and got done what I needed so I could watch a little of the Clippers game.

I was listening to a podcast today and I picked up on something interesting. The podcast talked about how your network was similar to your net worth. It hit home to me because right now I moved to a new city and I don’t know that many people. Right now the biggest people I am surrounded by are my business partners and my family members. I am happy with that but it is good to know I can surround myself with other entrepreneurs through podcasts and books.

I’m happy with how things are going since I’m living on my own and I can only get better.
