7th February 2017

If you’re like most of us, the chill that can result from cold, drafty windows is reason enough to invest in new panes for the home. And, if your water heater is so old it falls flat on its face after one hot water shower, you’re probably already thinking that it’s time to shop for a replacement.

6th February 2017

I’m excited to finally share with you all how I’ve been working full-time at home. I started a blog 4 years ago, and just a few months ago I decided to take the leap and go full-time.

This job has to lead me to so much happiness, a flexible schedule where I get to work when I’m the most inspired and has allowed me to travel the world.

I’ve managed to double, and almost triple my income the past several months, which is why blogging is so awesome. At a regular job, I would get a raise once a year, but with blogging, I get constant raises from my hard work. I’m currently in college and working full-time at a job that doesn’t even feel like a job. I always knew that I wanted to work for myself and help as many people as I could. A blog allows me to do all of this, which is why I often encourage my friends and readers to create their own blog.

Are you trying to become more productive with your free time and improve or learn a new skill?

This post was inspired by an article that I read that talked about how many hours a day is spent on social media. This made me wonder how far a person could go within themselves if they spent time on bettering themselves and leading a more productive life. Those 2 hours spent scrolling through Facebook could be spent learning another language.

I often get asked by my readers what I like doing in my free time. When I’m not blogging, I love trying out new activities and foods. Getting out of your comfort zone usually leads to growing as a person and becoming stronger.

My go-to activity at the moment is browsing around at tiny houses on Pinterest. I recently visited a tiny house community in Austin, Texas (the largest in the country) and it blew me away! I’m currently trying to get J.D. on board, so we’ll see. Did you know that the average tiny house cost is $25,000, while the average American house is $285,000? Mind blowing!
