Owning Your Own Business

Check this video out. I must say, I completely agree. Working a "9-5" is not going to make you wealthy. Why work so hard for something you don't own (Your job)? Change your way of thinking. I don't know about you, but I'm going to listen to someone who HAS money rather than someone who doesn't. Check out what Robert Kiyosaki of "Rich Dad, Poor Dad" has to say:

Contact me for information on how to get started.

Minx Nails

I finally got Minx Nails for my birthday! I absolutely love them, so I just wanted to share a pic. If you live in the DC area, I got them done at Sassy Nail Spa. They are holding up well so far, and I was told if I take care of them they'd last me 2 weeks. If you are not sure what Minx is, check out this site: Minx Nails.

What are you doing to change your life?

I think that the older we get, the more we think about this question: What am I doing to change my life? For the better, of course. We all wake up, go to work for 8+ hours, come home, do whatever we need to do there (cook/take care of children/tend to spouse or significant other), get ready for bed, and do it all again the next day. And the day after that. I, myself, feel overworked and my personality does not allow me to be "happy" sitting in a cubicle all day for 5 days a week. Don't get me wrong, I have a great job, great managers, and the pay is pretty nice. I am truly grateful for that b/c so many are struggling now especially in this economy. What I am trying to get at is, why is this the "only" way of living? A "9-5"? I want to own my own business someday, so now is the time to move toward that goal. Each day I have to do SOMETHING to work toward that, because this just isn't fulfilling. Some people are happy with their 9-5/cubicle jobs, but I need something different. And I've found it in my home based business, which I am very excited about.

So, my question is... What are YOU doing to get the most out of your life, to be happy and what is your idea/definition of success? I'd love to hear your thoughts/opinions...

Healthy Hair = GREAT Hair

Good Afternoon!

Just wanted to share a little tip. In case you missed it, I LOVE Herbal Essence Hello Hydration AND Totally Twisted conditioners. They both work very well on my hair. Here is something I've been doing to get even more from them: adding olive oil to the conditioner, and shaking it up. It gives my hair more slip and moisturizes it even better than the conditioner alone. My hair comes out REALLY soft and I only apply shea butter about every 2-3 days so it doesn't get dry. 1st pic is my twistout today, pinned up on one side. The 2nd pic is last night when I straightened a section to see the length of my hair. I will be 1 year natural on Nov. 22.

Addicted to Twitter?

OK so if any of you follow me on Twitter, and if you login daily, you KNOW that I tweet excessively. I don't know how this happened... How did I become addicted? I didn't even see it coming! Here is how you know you are addicted to Twitter (just a few signs from David Risley):

  • You’re on the FriendFeed website and find yourself refreshing the page rather than waiting for the auto-refresh. F5 is worn out.
  • You realize you need to turn off Twitter or FriendFeed to get any work done. Problem is, you “realized” that an hour ago, too.
  • You get overly excited when you get a new follower.
  • You find yourself typing “@” to reply to people, even if its in an email.
  • You are bored and confused whenever there is another Twitter outage.
  • You have Twhirl or Alert Thingy set to start automatically on boot up.
  • Your blog hasn’t been updated in awhile, but you’ve been Twittering like crazy.
  • You feel the strong need to check up on FriendFeed or Twitter before going to bed at night. Or perhaps on your laptop IN bed.
  • First thing you do when you get home from date night with the wife is check Twitter or FriendFeed.
  • You put your Twitter handle on your business card.

Here are my own signs that I've added:
- You MUST reply to all @replies throughout the day
- You repeatedly check your @replies to see who is talking to you
- You have more than one Twitter app on your phone, or more than 1 way to access Twitter via computer

I had to log out today to get some work done, y'all. It used to be Facebook that I was addicted to. Now I can barely stand it, b/c Twitter has taken over!! I guess it will fade soon... I hope!

In the meantime... ummm... follow me @1KeetaRay. LOL

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month!!

Hello, Readers!! First, I'd like to thank my new blog followers! Welcome :-)

Well, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month!!! Let's all get involved and do what we can. I lost someone in my family to breast cancer 2 years ago, and another family member of mine had to have a mastectomy. We must stay up on our self-exams and support Breast Cancer Research. If you find ANYTHING abnormal/unusual, PLEASE make an appointment with your Doctor asap. Timing is important!

For tips on how to perform a self-exam, visit: Breast Self Exam

Visit the Susan G. Komen For the Cure website to see how you can get involved.

Thanks for reading and let's do what we can!!
