Wheel of Life: It’s A Little Foggy + Heart Talk Achieved!

Oh, yes! Welcome back to another edition of the wheel of life, which is coming about 5 days earlier from when I normally debut it.  I’m grateful as hell, regardless of all the things I’ve been through, but I do believe I’ve been looking in the wrong places.

Over the course of this month, it’s been a bit turbulent.  Job offers but no jobs; a woman applying for jobs for me – only to tell me “they chose another teacher;” British language center (not my cup of tea) which said they would use me, but they never did.

These are all just forms in the road and it revolves a little bit around career.  It’s been a bit wild in general, but it’s time to go over the month in it’s entirety!

Family & Friends – 4

Yeah, definitely a bit low from the last time.  Remember the story about the Indian girl who’s a fitness trainer? Yeah, too much baggage, lies, voids and no trust.  Dumped like a bad habit.  I’ve also realized that one of my best friends is an afterthought now.  This category took a ferocious hit this month.

What Now?

Ok, the loose and unwanted baggage has been taking out.  So what’s the next step? Nurture those life-time relationships I already have and don’t take the newcomers too seriously.

Family will always be family.  Not much around but hear some motivating words from my family from time-to-time.

Health – 7

In terms of my healthy living, it’s extraordinary.  I get enough sleep and I haven’t had any allergies whatsoever.  My mileage on my runs continues to go up and I don’t feel extremely tired after my runs, either.

However, I lost my shape 🙁 I’m very diligent now with my funds until something is consistent, so I haven’t been joining my workout class twice-a-week like I normally did last year.

Fun & Hobbies – 6

This is a bit unchanged because nothing miraculous happened over this month.

Romantic Relationships – Hell No

That’s a big hell no, too.

Career – 10

*CLEARED CONSCIOUS*

YouTube hit the biggest peak just a few days ago with people in almost every country listening to me.  It’s unbelievably fascinating and sooooo exciting! People are commenting, suggesting, recommending and speaking about me – on top of sharing my videos.  So grateful!

Podcast hit some massive spikes over the past week.  I’ve gotten some great downloads from countries such as Mauritius, and lots of isolated towns around America are figuring out about me.  I mean it’s finally beginning to promote itself!

Blog/website is very enticing to say the least.  I get sparks from Greece, Mexico, Tanzania and a few other countries, looking for my education blogs and whatnot.

The ultimate project I got could possibly land me residual income for the next 10 years, so now I’m hustling big time in terms of making practice tests and getting ready for the massive herd of people who are about to come in by the thousands – literally.

My graphic designer, who I probably will cut ties with soon, did my Facebook cover art and a few other things.  However, having things put off and attitude is started to make me second guess everything.  I think I will upgrade my wordpress site and install plugins.  MAYBE!

This is probably the immediate things that are happening.  Of course there are probably another half-dozen things that are taking place at the moment.  I’m just TOO EXCITED!

I think what’s happening and what just happened with my primary job, as of today, was a blessing in disguise and made me rethink a couple of things, thanks to someone who cares about me.

Personal Development – 9

Found ET (Eric Thomas) YouTube channel, along with listening to Be Inspired (another YouTube channel) has really changed me a lot over the past several days.  I’m literally on fire.  I’ve been doing a lot of reading and converting so much of it to blogs and podcast.

Physical Environment – 8

Now, I’m dumping the trash out right now.  Once that’s over, my environment should be at a consistent 10 every month.  New jobs all around Bangkok, wonderful women that I work with, big projects and living in a gorgeous condo says it all.

Wealth – 7.5

Worst month in terms of salary in January at the burning trash dump (lol – I love creating nicknames for this place).  However, I got my projects on board, teaching trainer project, and so many others are coming in.  This month I’ll be in a very good surplus, but March, April, and May will determine the outcome of whether I stay or go to possibly Spain or France.

Career Goals For 2018

Well, this is the big one! I mean there’s Tedx, working for companies (on my own contracts), there’s the podcast, Herbalife, YouTube, selling things on my website, business cards, meetings, presentations.  Omg! I mean I really need to thing and plan this one out thoroughly.

Podcast

One of the biggest goals of course for this year is building a bigger audience. Stagnation does happen from time-to-time.  Has my podcast been on the incline? Absolutely YES.  I mean in 2016, I would be excited if I get 1-5 plays in one day.  Now that I’ve enabled downloading on my podcast, everything has taken off.  There are third-party websites picking up my podcast.  I’m on iHeartRadio and Stitcher along with dozens of others.  I bought a year-long subscription on SoundCloud to reach out to people on there and it’s all going very well.  The next big step is obviously Spotify.

I definitely need MORE INTERVIEWS! Since I’ve already established a schedule, there’s a one day void on Monday and I would love to do four interviews a month.  I have two prospectives at the moment.  One person, who I was suppose to do a podcast interview last week until technical difficulties, has gone completely silent.  Perhaps he was frustrated with the entire ordeal – and he had a reason to be. LOL. It happens.

Collaborations are extremely important.  Having people put me on their podcast and provide a link…or even attaching the link to a blog is very important.  Example, there was one particular “hollywood” personality who I got in touch with and I think she was all up for the podcast on my end; however, she then asked for $995.  I laughed because she had just a hair over 1k followers.  Smh.

YouTube

My students, at the company that recently expunged me (I love saying this – lol), looked my educational videos up on YouTube back in October.  When they did this, I realized my plays went from 2k to 3k in a months span.  Since then. My videos are at 4.6k.  I’ve looked at the geographical location and it points basically everywhere: Indonesia, Brazil, Antigua, France, Reunion, South Korea, Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Switzerland.  You name it.  I couldn’t believe it because I hadn’t made an educational video in the past two years! So, I decided to make a ton of videos and I make sure content is being distributed rapidly.  I now have my graphic designer working on a new banner and a few other things.

Herbalife

I’m not one of those people that like shoving products or anything down others’ faces.  I did this probably a few years ago in trying to convince some of my friends that they should try Herbalife…and it never worked.  After that, I just didn’t care anymore.  If I could just live it, people will come.  Since then, lots of people, including co-workers and students, have asked me about the products.  No, I haven’t gone up the ranks since 2013, but I do want to take the great leap sometime in the last quarter of this year and start set up a new stream of income.

Book

Grrrrr this is the one! I was thinking of having a ghostwriter do it for me, but no one knows the story of what I went through here in Thailand more than I! I mean I have to tell it very vividly and descriptively.  I wish I had documented everything when it occurred, but I didn’t.  I just recently watched a TedX about a girl saying, “staying silent is the worse thing you can do.”  Well, I need to speak up about the experiences I’ve had in this country once and for all.  Just doing it is the catch…but if I can just brainstorm a couple of pages in the morning and make it my number one priority for the year = BINGO!

Website

The website is going to come into fruition over the next few months (before my anticipatory leave to South America), and on there will be lots of PDF’s templates and other things for my students all around the world to buy and stuff.  Luckily I have a graphic designer that’s doing amazing work at the moment; and what’s even more is I have the savings to pay for it all.  Very ecstatic and grateful for it.  Now, when this website launches, this WordPress site is going to be switched over there.  WordPress hasn’t provided me with much of anything except traffic.  Even the payment button is faulty.  If I want to sell things and plugins, I have to pay an additional 150$, which isn’t even worth it (sorry, WordPress); so I’m going to have a brilliant graphic designer build my website from scratch.  WOOHOO!
