📚CURRENT READ: Evicted-Poverty and Profit in the American City.
In this brilliant, heartbreaking book, Matthew Desmond takes us into the poorest neighborhoods of Milwaukee to tell the story of eight families on the edge, the landlords who profit and those families that suffer. If you are a Landlord, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK. Its stories will leave you speechless. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Let’s link up on GOODREADS (Coach Andrea) and exchange book suggestions. Download the app or follow the link from this website’s hone page. Thank you fellow “Goodreader” Kendrall for the book suggestion. I started last night and I’m already halfway through. Excellent Book ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
I’m back! That’s enough reason for me to celebrate.
I can give you a million “excuses” as to why I haven’t posted, but I won’t because I can sum all those excuses up into one word: COMPLACENCY.
Over my six month hiatus, I remembered a few principles about blogging I should have never abandoned. Allow me to share the most important ones with you.
1. MAINTAINING A BLOG REQUIRES DISCIPLINE: Spending 1-2 hours each day can make the difference between an engaged audience vs an audience who suddenly becomes disinterested.
2. MAINTAINING A BLOG REQUIRES PLANNING: This includes posting on topics relevant to your target audience not just topics that interest the blogger.
3. MAINTAINING A BLOG REQUIRES CONSISTENCY: Committment is doing something even when we don’t feel like it. There’s no other way to say it.
I thank those who gave me their positive feedback as well as constructive criticism and well, just criticism in general.
Be on the lookout for regular postings, helpful tips and tricks and I’ll be adding “My Two Cents,” a column responding to questions/given scenarios posed to me.
Posts will be much shorter (please hold your applause,) which should make for a more pleasant reading experience (I’m a Journalism major and a wannabe writer/poet so cut me some slack here). Also look for guest postings.
Weekly Periscope sessions with The GOAL Patrol will resume although I’m indecisive regarding the future of my Facebook page.
I do look forward to resuming my blog. I’m not ashamed to tell you I’m a little excited. Okay a lot! In the meantime feel free to explore my website and tell me what topics you’d like to discuss.
Wishing you prosperity and healthy finances in 2017,
I have an “Elite Team” of professionals (HVAC, Electrician, Plumber, Garage Door Guy, etc) I can depend on but I can’t rely solely on my “starters.” Just as a football squad adds “depth” to its roster, Landlords should do the same when it comes to “backup” professionals.
