My Thoughts

                                                 Hello  My hustlers How's Your Hustle?  

 Let's talk about this MLM marketing company called Paparazzi Jewelry. No I am not advertising it or selling it. I am using it to show you something about a hustle. This company is fresh on the MLM market. It has independent consultants selling  their jewelry for $5 a piece at homeparties or through social media.  The cheapest starter kit is about $99 you get 35 pieces of jewelry along with instructional booklets and jewelry stands and such.. The company states when you sell that jewelry all 35 pieces at $5 a pop you can make the starter kit money back and make a profit as well.

Here's what I want to say the only person getting rich off this stuff is the company who's selling it to the consultant. The company is making a killing  by selling jewelry kits  to people who believe they an make a lot of money  selling the companies jewelry.  The reason I am telling you this is that I have seen so many Facebook lives  with women selling this jewelry. I have seen YouTube videos with them selling it.  What I have learn from them is this no matter how many people sell the same product at the same time.  They all sell it  different from the next person because they all have  different personalities.  Some consultants are funny and make  you want to buy from them.  While and others needs  a refresher course when it comes to selling. Their hunger to sell is different and they do different things to get their products in the customers hands

All I am saying is that your service  or products might be just like anybody's else's it's you that makes the product stand out and make people want to deal with you.  Make your customers experience a fun one. Find a different approach or ways to sell & keep learning how to be a better seller. I learn something about myself and my hustle everyday and I never stop trying to improve it and you should to.

Part-time Job Or Hustle?


                           Hello My Hustlers, Happy Memorial Day to you.

Pat-time job or side Hustle which one? If you have to choose only one which one would you choose. 

Part-Time Job you have a steady income, hours and you know here you have to be at a certain time and you also know what you have to do work wise. You get a steady check weekly and your money is straight. No hassles or out lay of your own money to get  the company started. If a customers doesn't come back to your company that your working for whatever reason . Do you care it's not your business anyway. Your attitude  is different when you work for someone else then when you work for yourself. Lastly you are at the mercy of a boss that can tell you what to do and how to do it because they are paying you.

Hustling is different you might not get paid weekly or at all for a few months, You are on your own when it comes to being assigned task to do for your hustle. Only you know what you need to do to make your hustle grow. You will be working harder then you would a part-time job because this is your baby and you have to worker harder for it.  You going to be putting out money for your hustle instead of someone paying you a weekly paycheck to help them with their business. In a part-time job your there to help not give your opinion  and directions on how the business should go. With your own hustle you are the boss and you make all the decisions. You have a commitment to something that you believe in  not so sure I can say the same if you have a part-time job. If your customers are dissatisfied with your service or products you care and want to make it right. Can't say the same  if you had a part-time job can you?  Did I mention that you an write off your hustle on your taxes.

If anything if you have to get a part-time job get one for 2-3 days a week and the other free time use it on your hustle. Use your part-time money to fund your hustle and when your hustle is  making more then your part-time say good by to your part-time.  I have done both and they both have their merits it up to you to decide which is better for you.

                                                      Happy Hustling

That What Friends Are For


Hello My Hustlers, How 's The Hustle ?


Friendships not many of us have them.  If we do have them we don't  utilize their opinions in the best way possible. This is what I am talking about. Your selling a product or service that your marketing    to the best of your  abilities and still you don't get the right results. You think to yourself what am I doing wrong. This happens to me all the time. That's where your friends come in to play. Invite them over cook or take them out to dinner and bounce some marketing  ideas off of them.

Show them what your doing  for your product or service when it comes to marketing. Ask them if it was their hustle how would  they do it differently. Also stress to them that no matter what they say good, bad or ugly your feeling will not be hurt.

Your friends will  look at your marketing efforts  differently from the way your looking at it. They might see something in your marketing ads that you don't see.  Your inside your  hustle  looking out. Your friend  are outside your hustle  looking in. It makes a difference. 

 Your hustle is your baby and you might not see the flaws in it's marketing ideas  but your friends will and hopefully they will truthfully tell you what  is right with them and what is wrong with them.
That's what friends are for right?

Happy Hustling

Free Intro



 Hello My Hustlers, I have been dying to share this with you. I was reading something somewhere and I came across this. Oh yea I was so mad about that fivver guy flaking out on me I researched how to make my own intro for my YouTube channels ( story of the fivver situation is in my last blog post).

Anyway I found this great site called Renderforest,com here's the link if you want to check it out
https://www.renderforest.com/templates This site for Free  allows you to create an intro and outgo for your videos. I have used it for both my YouTube channels. But you know there  is a catch with this site right.

Yes you can get the intro for free but they come with the company's watermark. If you want the water mark removed then that's where the money comes in. But if you don't mind having their water mark on your stuff then it's free. I will add it's very simple to use and they even offer you music to go with your  intro or whatever program you use with them. They have other programs that you can use for different things. I was just interested in their intros.

I didn't mind having their water mark on my intro..   My intro was free and right now with my YouTube channels I am just trying to build my audience. Once my channels get bigger then I will change the intro to include no water marks but for now I am find with it.

So go check out the sight hey it's free what have you got to lose.  Happy Hustling

Cancelled Order

 Hello My Hustlers, How Your Hustle going?  Let me share a story with you about motivation. This just happened to me so here goes....

 I am working on building my audience for my YouTube channels and I was looking for a person to do intro for both channels. I have worked with people on Fivvers.com before so I looked for a person who would do YouTube intros cheap. Like $5 cheap. Since I had a credit of $4 on fivvers.com it was even better. I find a person who would do 5 intros for youtube for $5 dollars. I said great I emailed that fivver person, told him what I wanted he said he could do it. I wanted  intros for 2 youtube channels so I asked if he could do 3 for one and 2 for the other. After all that e mailing on our parts  he stated he could do it. I paid $2 for the service remember I had a $4 credit and the full fee would have been $6. I thought this was great I am getting all this for $2.

Anyway when the time came for the fivvers guy to deliver my stuff. He canceled my order saying that he could not do what I wanted for $5. Really didn't we talk about what I wanted before I ordered from you and you said you could do it. 

So the order was canceled and instead of using fivvers again I am doing it myself. I am mad and motivated. Freak it I will make my own youtube intro and keep my $5 in my pocket.

Note I will not be using fivvers.com again the people on there now is a hit and miss. They use to be good when it started but in my opinion they have fallen off. The people with the services they are providing are just not as good and reliable as they use to be. Just my opinion. 

                                                          Keep Hustling

A True Hustler

 Hello My Hustlers.How's your hustle going? I just wanted to share something with you. A while back I was in Manhattan meeting with friends. when I  came across this guy who had written a book called " How To Roll  A Blunt For Dummies. He told me that he had written the book himself and did the art work on the cover.  He also told me that he worked part-time somewhere else and that the money that he used for the book came from his part-time job and going without   Now that's true dedication to a hustle!

I am telling you this story because look at his table  in the picture. He has books printed for you to purchase, he has a book poster for you to see and it attracts attention to anybody walking by like me. He also set up a table on the sidewalk in Manhattans busies tourist spot. So that he is bound to sell something even if it's a few copies to the tourist. He has no overhead when he sets up his stand all he needed to bring with him is his products, a small table and chair. Now I would not recommend that you set up in a busy place like Manhattan because the cops will talk your stuff If you don't have a permit to sell on the street. If they are nice they will give you a $100 ticket first. But  I like the idea of taking the steps that ones needs to get your products and services notice. It's call street hustling. Do you have what it takes  to street hustle your products and services?

Note: He charged me $1 to take his picture but it was worth it. Either buy my book or take my picture I am still making $$.

Crowdfunding

 

Hello My Hustlers, How's the Hustle going?

Today I wanted to talk to you about crowdfunding. If your not sure what it is  this is the definition of crowdfunding the practice of funding a project or venture by raising many small amounts of money from a large number of people, typically via the Internet. Basically what your doing is asking strangers to give you money for a project or a small business.. I have read where people ask strangers to fund their vacations, car purchases ,medical bills, weddings, pet care you get the idea. But I am talking about your hustle today.
Do you think crowdfunding is right for your hustle?

I feel this way what is the point of hustling if your asking people to help you do it. The fun is in the struggle to get from point A to point Z doing it  by yourself. Right. Yes we can ask for help in other ways as far as promotions and work wise. But asking for money  I don't think so.
In crowdfunding you are asking a stranger to help you hustle but what is in it or them. They give you hustle money and you in return give them what? A percentage of your hustle, a gift, what? From what I am seeing on a sight like Go fund me the contributor to the project get's nothing.

I feel this way  crowdfunding is  a form of  social begging  this is  my own personal opinion. I think if your hustling there are many ways to fund it out of your own pocket. I wrote a post on just that. Check out my later post on some ideas how to get money for your hustle.

If your hustle can not bring you in the $$ to maintain it. My suggestion is to look into other hustles or get real cheap and creative with your hustle until it turns a profit. 

Happy Hustling

Good Hustle Quote For You


Hello My Hustlers. How's your hustle today? Just wanted to share with you a money quote. I really like the stay focus part because if you lose focus of what your hustle is and why your doing it you will lose your drive to hustle. Don't forget to always no matter how much money you make to remain humble. A lot of people forget how to be humble but I know that is not you right?
