The Entrepreneur Daily series are blog posts that I write when I am working on my side business. My goal is to write a post every day when I am in “entrepreneur mode” and actively working on my business, talking about what I’m grateful for and what I’m working on. In a perfect world, that would be every single day, but in my reality, I work on my business in spurts. I’ve accepted this as my reality for now and hope to improve going forward. This is my entrepreneur journal, to document where I am today.
What I’m Grateful For
Today I’m grateful for sitcoms, aka situational comedies. Those half-hour laugh fests where our favorite goofball characters get involved in some of the stupidest or silliest situations…all for our entertainment.
I’m thankful for sitcoms because they helped to get me through a down day yesterday. I was tired and worn out…I’m still tired and worn out…but I feel much better today.
I clicked over to Netflix and put on a few episodes of Archer and It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. They are certainly acquired taste kind of shows, but they are some of my favorite sitcoms. Watching them let me put all my troubles on hold while I laughed at the ridiculous things the characters did.
I was able to shut off my brain, take a mental break from thinking, and just laugh at ridiculous jokes. Sitcoms are in heavy rotation for me lately as I can use the laughter.
What I’m Working On
I’m back at it today, working towards financial freedom!
My focus this week is on real estate investing. I read a couple real estate articles this morning and cracked open a real estate book last night. I’m beginning to get the focus back. Working on generating that obsessive nature that permeates life for everything outside of my 9 to 5 work.
Then this morning I got on YouTube for some reason. I was drawn to this video, a commercial for the game Boom Beach…
This is one of my favorite, warped pep talks…
“We’ve stormed this beach 17 times. 17 times we’ve been defeated. A lot of those times, horrifically.
But a new plan just came down from HQ, and it’s a show stopper!”
This is exactly how I feel on many days as an entrepreneur/side gig hustler…full of optimism despite the many, many failures.
This is the sarcastic humor that brings me around, gets me going again.
Goals For the Day
The goal today is simple…stay engaged with the side gig. That means that I need to pick up a real estate book and learn something today…or…read an article and learn something today.
I will learn something about buy and hold investing for real estate today. Simple.
