How I found my side hustle

How I found my side hustle

Why finding your side hustle can make a huge difference in your life. My side hustle was found in my love of art and being able to express myself creatively. Now from what i’ve learned you can’t always go looking for a side hustle, sometimes it needs to find you. I know reading that might sound kind of strange or goofy but hear me out. Most jobs I’ve had it’s because I needed the job, needed the money, needed to…

Finding a Job Through the Eyes of a Millennial

Finding a Job Through the Eyes of a Millennial

When I was growing up I never had the “this is what I want to be when I grow up” moment. I saw it with my friends and peers but never had it for myself. For me personally I couldn’t fathom picking only one Job. The thought alone felt daunting. How can I pick one thing to do for the next thirty plus years before I retire? I’ve always labeled myself as a dabbler. I’m always wanting to try something…

The closet that wasn’t a closet

Everyone has at least one space in their home that they don’t know what to do with, for me it was a closet. It can be the weird space under the stairs or the strange corner of a kitchen that no normal furniture fits in. For me, the strange space is a small, only semi-functional closet. The doors are not tall enough, the space too small, and the ease of access is a big fat no. It needs a change….

Taxes, Cars and a little bit of Insanity

Taxes, Cars and a little bit of Insanity

If you do want to add meat into this dish I would recommend tiny shrimp or thinly sliced italian sausage. Ingredients   1 eggplant 2 zucchini  15 oz can diced tomato 1 orange bell pepper diced…

Sometimes a little TLC is all you need. I found this old filing cabinet at my local thrift store and just saw so much potential with it. It had good bones it just needed a little TLC. I started by removing the handles and other metal hard wear.  The key hole lock was the only thing that seemed to be cemented to the darn thing so I left it alone.   Then, I gave the whole piece a light sanding…
