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…

Ranting For A Dollar

 

We are in the mindset to change the past with the present past

The way of thinking is clouded with the thoughts we are worthy

Ouch!?!

Aren’t we worthy?

Hold on …

We are caught up in the thoughts that we are worthy

And change must happen

The vagueness of our identities are played out on the social stage

We stand for causes that mean nothing to us

We voice concerns to be seen not heard

What is this America?

What has this America become?

Our morals were created

Change is a cycle

We fight for causes $$$

We want change

We sell our cross to bear fame

6 seconds

15 seconds

The price of being worthy

Is set at a price …

How much do you cost?

Loved

A time to love. Well more or less a feeling. The hardship of the process of love is the key to building a loving feeling. A disconnection causes issues that normally, normal people don’t overcome. This is a; I deserve nation. Everybody deserves something. But nobody wants to admit that they need to give something. So we are here playing with the idea of love as we define it. No give take, just a take and give me more.
Taking a huge leap of faith here…

I love you…
Shit hold on…

I will show you…

Pen down. Hands held open. I’ll hug you…

Kiss you gently and say I love you …

I’ll give you all of me. I’ll trust you

Breathe…

Breathe…

Visions of you is all I see

Breathe…

I need you …

In a time where love is defined through words. We must find out actions. We must risk our fears, to embrace our wants and needs…

Questions 

And then

A lesson was learned

A growth was encouraged 

The self-inflicting wounds were in disarray

I’ve asked many questions 

Sought many answers

Buried many lessons 

Repeated and built tolerance 

And then clarity 

And then change 

And then learning

Forming better questions

Seeking better answers

Researching love 

Understanding the moments

Enjoying the serenity

Embracing the equanimity

And asking questions that are relevant 

To attaining growth

 

Sell Yourself Short

We are used to selling ourselves short. Never questioning out loud why, but creating reasons why. Not identifying why. Just ensuring its for the better. We sell ourselves short, maybe life wanted it. Maybe we can’t answer that fear conquering question. Maybe it’s all relative to our perception of reality. But it’s a selling point. It’s the worse end of a deal. It’s comfortable, we distain the discomfort. But why? Why can’t we refrain from that urge to be comfortable, and challenge those desires to explore. I implore you to stop selling yourself short and commit to the excellence you once believed in. You can, and you will… 

  
 

Reader That Writes

Break

So often we look for the reasons not to do what it is we want to do.

We push off the urge in deciding to be great to pursue the greatness in others.

We lose out, or we feel it was a gain.

We start to dream about, or we change goals to meet the new need to be.

Did the dream become a fantasy and the goals come reality?

Did life offer a new outlook that we must not miss out on?

Is the possibility of serving greater than the reality of being served?

Can we talk a break?

Success

Building a habit

Gaining the knowledge

Showing the progression

Loving the process

Success

Offered Free Shipping 

What was I thinking about offering free shipping? When I was thinking out loud it sounded like I was a hot rapper, and I just spit a fire bar! Now that the orders are coming in, this free shipping is a great tool to have when sales are slow. But my goal of selling 10 items a day has quickly changed into finding the time to ship these items. Bracelet Season is in full swing. Thank you to the community of supporters. With this on going support, a complaint about free shipping is a good thing.
