And here we are…
I hope everyone is doing well during this crazy time. I know that some of us are still working and trying to make the best of this stressful mess while others are trying to stay sane and stay inside. There are so many changes happening around us and many of us are just going through the motions to get to the next day. Whatever you got going on, I appreciate you for taking time to read this post. I’m just going to get you caught up on what has been going on since the last post.
This was my bounce back month. I mean…December did kind of kick me in the back of the knee and while I was already on crutches. January was a month of renewing. I was coming down from peak season at work and things were starting to lighten up a bit. I celebrated my 38th birthday which is always my favorite holiday of the year. My coworkers are super dope and came through with all types of party favors and decorations. This was the first time in a long time that I worked on my birthday and it was actually pretty cool. At the end of the month I took my first trip to Miami to volunteer for Super Bowl LIV. It was really cool and I met some really dope people and used the opportunity to network. Of course I found some delicious food to eat while I was there (I could do an entire post about food alone). The days were beautiful and full of sunshine. The people were friendly and welcoming. We ubered everywhere and our drivers were really nice. We had a great time overall.
The renewing just continued with February. After the Super Bowl I came home and went back to work. I finished paying off a few big bills and I was ready to start back focusing on my savings plan and rebuilding my business. Before I left for Miami, we started a new competition at work among the supervisors and I was named supervisor of the week the week I returned. The employees were so excited and happy for me when I walked on the floor with this big huge belt on displaying that I won. It was really cool to share that experience with them. The month was pretty cool for the most part. I still had some adjusting to do from peak season, self-employment, and motherhood. Before I knew it, I was contacted by a #homegirl to go to Miami for a business trip. Of course I will go back to Miami! It was so dope to go back and see the city in a different light. We were apart of an entrepreneur weekend celebration and it was wild. We met a LOT of people who do a little of everything. The pitch competition was really cool to watch and learn from. It was like a mini shark tank. I absorbed so much during this trip and I was able to connect with some wonderful women who showed me that I am not alone and I am throughly supported.
