Pressing Forward

My dream is becoming my reality. On September 4, 2015 I created my own fitness and health company Treasure Life Fitness and Health, LLC.  Today, I applied for my tax id number and business license and today is the official start date of my business. I am so thankful to God for allowing me to have supportive people in my life and for giving me the mind to want to be in business for myself.

It feels really good to be a business owner at the age of 30. I'm truly thankful to have good role models such as my dad and my uncles who are already in business for themselves. I hope to inspire other young adults to go after their dreams to open up their own businesses. I pray that I always keep God first, stay focused, and remain humble.

"Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth." 3 John 2

Modern Day Slaves

I'm sure many of us can relate to student loan debt. We go to school to get a good job, just to turn around and spend years paying off those student loans if we weren't fortunate enough to have college paid for.

The job market isn't what it use to be and many times having a degree is worthless. I have two degrees in which I work in neither of those fields. I'm in a good position right now to save and pay but everyone is not fortunate enough to say the same. Especially, if you have kids, a family, mortgage, and other bills to pay. These student loans are keeping us as slaves to the system. By the time it's all said and done, I could have used that money that I'm paying right now to buy a house, some land, or invest into my own business. It's quite saddening. Nevertheless, when you know better you do better.

My advice to the younger generation is don't allow yourself to become engulfed in student loan debt. There are so many things that you can do and make good money without having a formal education. You just have to connect with the right people.

Success does not depend on how many degrees you have, how big your house is, what type of car that you drive, or what type of clothes that you wear. Rather, success is just being happy within and being able to achieve things that you feel are important to you. Yet, this society makes it so hard for people to just be themselves and live their life according to their own comfort. We have so much pressure on us to impress one another when all that we really need is to be happy and to be loved.

This is your life and you don't have to be a slave to the system. Can't wait until I'm
