Back To Business

The deals are always out there. The hustle is always upon us. The gifts to share with others are priceless. Back to business, in my many attempts to grow a business I seem to start over. With the urge to do better with the next idea. These ideas come often and usually stay around until the fire dies. Why does this lack of commitment happen I often ask myself, but quickly forget as I am on to the next idea.

Back to business again. Foxtrail Clothing Company. Well that went 30 days and died. But the clothing concept was fire. I swear the ideas were on point. The jacket, joggers and hem tees were going to be a hit. Hold on, how much for the set? Well pricing was going to be $55 for a windbreaker jacket, $30 for the joggers and $15 for the hem tees. Foxtrail clothing was going to be a hit. (Orders bulk from China and sadly found out that large wasn’t a US large.) Instead of sticking with the idea, the passion died. Nothing became of Foxtrail.

Back to business though. Bracelets and Laces. The idea was simple; team the wrist with sneakers. Well I’m a sneakerhead and with a good sense of wrist fashion. Selling laces and adding gold tips. At that time Kanye West sneakers had the gold tips, and it was a hot item. So jumping on that fashionable trend I decided to market bracelets and laces, plus gold and black tips for the laces. Genius. The bracelets were a hit. People bought them and enjoyed that fashion. The laces never had a chance. Feeling that I needed both to consider this a good business, that fire burned out. Bracelets and Laces flamed out.

The ideas to start a business is always the passion. Having setbacks seems to always hit hard and moving on from those ideas instead of working it out is a problem. Once having the success of SoleShoecase and The Epic Sports Show fadeaway I have always in a way tried to get that same passion back. Reviewing sneakers, while podcasting about sports seems to meet my life long dreams. Forgetting how to much I need that hustle back I look to sit-down and write.

The Dyme was suppose to be a weekly podcast about all things basketball. Looking at the clock every Thursday 8pm I’d find myself at the gym or working overtime. The feeling of recording wasn’t driving me. I needed to find that passion again. Time to excuse myself from the excuses of why. Find a way to become the person I’ve always wanted to be.

Back to the business of writing, blogging or I like to say jotting. WordPress on my phone. I find a song and zone out too. Currently Silence – They. on heavy repeat until this post is done. I found my ave and I jot. Tackling ideas with words, writing and writing. The feeling to release. Sadly often these stay in my draft inbox, never shared. But now seems like a good time to put the pen and pad aside and publish Jottersave. Show the world a Mad Jotter. The many thoughts to share. Writers write. It’s random but it’s something you need to read.

The deals are always out there. The hustle is always upon us. The gifts to share with others are priceless. Back to business, in my many attempts to grow a business I seem to start over. Back to the business of sharing thoughts. The Mad Jotter Presents: Something you should read often…

Trump Card

The Trump card is in full effect. Donald Trump has gained political power by saying what the people want to hear. His rise to power was the change people think that want. How did this happen when the media seemed to show nobody wanted Trump to be President? Because President Elect Donald Trump talked to rural America. Those people wanted to be heard and felt no other political heard them. That’s right the Democratic Party ignored them throughout the election. So in many ways Trump was the answer.

180216257-homeless-man-sleeps-under-an-american-flag-blanket-on-a.jpg.CROP.cq5dam_web_1280_1280_jpeg.jpgRural America was and still is the unseen demographic that the media does not seem to talk about. Media outlets talk about and show the racist and uneducated people in rural America. While many of them supported Trump, the media did not highlight the poor Americans that wanted change. Many of those poor Americans live in rural America. Ohio and Michigan have some of the highest poverty cities in America and those two states choice Trump. Why? East Cleveland, Ohio and Benton Harbor, Michigan for example have a property rate over 40%. Who was addressing their needs, wants and desires? Trump emerged as the ideal candidate because he promised jobs and promised to make America great again. It’s not hard to imagine why many came out and voted for him.

Addressing Donald Trump’s promises is what scares those opposing Trump. While media focused on the discriminatory and disrespectful statements Trump made, rural America focused on the promise. To them America was not great and since 2007, when the economic turmoil cost millions to lose their jobs and property, America has not recovered. Jobs were moved overseas, and/or jobs were taken due to the advancement of technology, many Americans felt hopeless. They felt their voice was not heard. So how could the Democratic Party fail? Why aren’t media outlets focusing on reuniting a divided America? So many questions are going to be answered in the next 4 years.

While questions and outrage will continue to happen. Rural America is in a unique position, they believe their concerns will be addressed. What happens if rural America rises and poverty goes down, will Donald Trump continue to usher in a new form of government? Will the Democrats learn how to include rural America next election process? Americans will always want a change for better. As we question his intent;  will President Elect Donald Trump have a positive effect on the economy as a whole and give rural America the answers they want?

 

Making Money

While the world is about getting your hustle on. The hustle starts with the mindset. What do you enough, and what ideas are you willing to put into action. While working in a career or job that you are good at and hate isn’t ideal. What are you willing to do enjoy your life you’re making? A lot of answers come to mind, and some just think this is save, I’m making money. I’m comfortable, well then this article isn’t for you. Well it still might be, please keep reading.

The art of making money isn’t hard, the art of making the income you want in order to live the life you want is every bit hard work. The mindset has to be are you willing to embrace the process? Are you willing to be uncomfortable with following your passion. Making money isn’t about what you’re planning to send it on. It’s about what you’re willing to do to achieve your money making goals…

All in all a vast way to collect a paycheck. Whether working for a company, or business owner, if you’re willing to put in the work, making money doesn’t become the goal, it becomes the paid skill. You’re beard and butter. You’re skill set. And the more you value those around you, the more they value you. Money will flow…

But seriously how does one get paid to blog… While just write about what you love. And hashtag everything!.

Jots

When I can’t seem to think of words to write I jot thinks that might be words I can write about. Hidden in this brain cell, these words look to escape and be freed. They look to become past, present and future jargon. Something somebody enjoys reading, while they too ponder their creative genius…

Date night

We sat 

We spoke 

We gazed

We slept

I want so badly too

Well too be

Or not

But more likely

I’d like to be

Write Less $$

I haven’t written in a lot time and sadly I dislike not writing on my blog. The followers are building and the poems and stories are actually getting likes. I’m posting a lot more poems on other sites, and have been asked to be a guest poet on others. Mainly those sites that nobody reads. Thus I am back at my craft of ghost writing. It’s a joy and a curse. It’s good to be noticed and horrible when I think damn they like me so much they want my words. Thinking of business plans next…
