Every time we have a company-wide meeting, I get a huge burst of ideas. Even though our meetings mostly consist of numbers, how the business is doing, growth rates, etc, I can always take something out of the meeting.
|Forgive this terrible diagram.
But in some ways, it’s hard to sit through. As they talk about the growth of our company in the millions, I’m wondering if I can get home and to work tomorrow by putting $10 (off my credit card) in my gas tank. Believe me, I know I’m blessed. I have a job. I have insurance.
But I am definitely the definition of the working poor.
Between the main bills (rent,electric,cable,gas) + medical bills & creditors + Sallie Mae = A Chick is struggling. No matter what I try to do, I’m always dead broke the day before payday. Always. Something’s gotta give. I try to save from each paycheck. Try being the operative word. There are some very successful people in my company. But it’s definitely not me though.
I can’t help but wonder, when is that success going to trickle down to me? Like straight up. What I’ve learned & realized is that it’s up to me to step outside of my day job and figure out how to hustle my strengths into a much higher level of success.
Of course, I’d like to have more money but that’s not what I’m chasing. I’d much rather be successful.
Looking to a brighter future,
