Back in business
Came back from Virginia like holy moly, LA is AMAZING, and got to work. I LOVE LA like head over heals for LA. It wasn’t always so, at first I thought LA was kinda slutty, like close your legs b**ch you stink. After a while you realize it has some pretty badass women making history and men too. So here I fell in love, brunching on Sundays, taking yoga where they know me by name and getting juice as a meal replacement. Yes I said it, I am THAT LA girl and proud of it. So coming back from Virginia to my life in LA was AMAZEBALLS. I can be spiritual and talk about chakras and people know what I mean, I can be sexually fluid and people just wanna know if the girl is cute, and I can quit my job to be an entrepreneur and my friends are like hell yassss I’ll buy your goddess energy shirts. Nothing like a 6-hour flight back to your city to put things in perspective, I came back ready to kick some booty. I was going to yoga in the mornings and then going to coffee shops for my afternoons to work on my long overdue business plan. I already paid taxes as a company, had an LLC and had been selling clothes but somehow managed to sit on this business plan thing, getter done!
Then I’d continue work at home, because lets be real owning a business and starting a company means you take no time off, you even dream about work, but you love it cause its yours, like a baby, your business baby.
Get your side gig on
So I’m not gonna lie, it hurts losing that nice cushion of an income so you definitely need a side hustle to get you through. Mine is dance so I teach and choreograph for myself and I have a couple of freelance gigs. Its important to figure out how you’re going to keep yourself afloat. For me it’s the side hustle and growing my business. Research and find grants to apply for, get out there and sell your product! Start local and expand to neighboring cities that you can find, get influencers to expose your brand to a larger target market, and slowly but surely get that business plan and business index so you’re ready to pitch whenever the opportunity shall come. That’s right be a boss and go out and find the opportunity, make it happen cause that’s what an entrepreneur does! I’ll keep you posted on how it turns out.
