So I would like to talk about stepping out into the world as an entrepreneur. I have often seen opportunities to become one, but the businesses that I was being introduced to didn’t really peak my interests or fit into what I thought I needed. Now that I am older, I have narrowed down the things that I can see myself pursuing, while also finding joy and fulfillment out of it.
The first thing that I have begun to work on is my pod-casting. I know that in the beginning it can be slow going and I may have to revamp my show several times before I get any attention, but it is something that I have been wanting to do for a while now and I am willing to put in the work. So far, I can say that I enjoy pod-casting and I hope to still be doing this on a much larger scale in the next 5 years.
Initially, as with most other things, I was apprehensive, but with encouragement from friends and family I went ahead and started. I did some google research and found that I could start pod-casting for free through anchor.fm [anchor.fm/isthatjas]. From there I figured I could begin to expand my show by downloading libsyn and creating a wordpress account to further my reach. At this point I’m not really sure how well that has happened. Again, it is slow going, but in due time I think I’ll start to see a change. I think this year will be my most challenging yet because I have to take extra steps that aren’t written in a manual to accomplish goals.
“I just wanna be great” is a common phrase I tend to use when discussing the things I have on my plate. I feel as though there are waaaay more things to do than time to do them. That, my friends, is very frustrating. I want to accomplish my podcast and social media goals, while also reaching goals through another branch of entrepreneurship.
I recently joined and become an associate for Legal Shield. This service provides legal services and council to those of us who making just enough to stay afloat, but not enough to afford an attorney who could assist in legal processes and/or court dates. I figured I would much rather have this in my back pocket just in case than to be panicking when it comes time to have some legal knowledge or representation. For less than what I pay for my internet, I can call up a lawyer right now to help with a traffic violation I received in the mail. SIGN ME UP PLEASE! So here I am, pushing the product. If you have found yourself interested in this service and how you might be able to take advantage, visit jasmineohill.wearelegalshield.com.
2018 has shown up and is telling me, “bitch, get yo shit together because I’m not waiting for you and neither is 2019”! Thank you for the inspiring words not-so-new-year. I’m really excited though. I want to know where the rest of this year will take me, and how will I cope with all of its changes. Will I crash and burn as an entrepreneur? Or will I thrive and finally find my footing? The quest is on, and I’m here for all of it!
As always, thank you for dropping in! Check out my podcast through anchor.fm/isthatjas and my new website for legal shield. Either way it goes, you will not regret it!
