STOP Hating the Rich, Become RICH and Be a Hero

It’s funny how humbled people think they are. They say life is more than money. Money isn’t everything. In which I say, quit your job. Tell your bill collectors that money isn’t everything. Money solves a lot of problems, like it or not. Money isn’t the root of all evil, loving it to the point of making a god out of it is.

Being rich in money doesn’t make you a bad person, nor does it make others bad people. When being rich becomes bad is when one uses it for greedy things. Like Donald Trump who tried kicking an old lady out of her home to make room for a parking lot for his casino. Completely different than Tony Robbins who feeds and shelters millions of people around the world every year.

Money is a tool. You can use it for good or bad purposes.

What makes me angry, is when the rich waste it. I feel like they have the tools I need to change the world, and they’re throwing it away. Stop wasting my tools!!!! Like the guy who built  100 million dollar ark. I sure hope he plans on spending the profits on helping others.

With money, we can donate to our favorite charity, build schools and clinics for various topics, we can feed the hungry if we have enough money to not work for a while we can even give our time to help the community.

Money is a blessing. One we get to share with others when we have a lot of it. Never forget that.

I was talking to my Pastor the other day, she has counseled many alcoholics, and she says the nearest clinic for women recovering from alcohol is in Tennessee. I live in Illinois. How sad is that?

There’s a lot of red tape of course. There are people who are trying to get one here. But what if I threw a few million down on it? What if I bought people off for the right reasons, and still kept it legal? I am sure there’s a way.

Money is a great goal as long as you have the right motives. Chase success, because with success you get to be a hero to someone else.

The best lifehack is helping the community.

“If you can dream it, then you can achieve it. You will get all you want in life if you help enough other people get what they want.” ~Zig Ziglar.

What are things you do with your money to help the community?

What would you do for the community if only you had the money?

SELL Yourself | You’re the Brand

So, when does a self-published writer make it big? Well, it depends. But for most? Give it ten years. Right now, I am outlining a bunch of my works so I can drop titles at a reasonable rate when I do release my first book. I want to have something available for the reader to check out if they liked my book. I can’t just upload a book when I am done. Not only does it need some editing, but it also needs a great cover. those two things alone are very expensive. And the covers can be even more pricey if I invite some of the artists I really want. At for a couple of the covers.

Basically, before I release one title I will have a marketing strategy in place. I don’t just want to publish, I want to gain my 10K readers. And that starts the moment I release book one. Even for the charity titles. It all works on my brand. I make nothing off some of my books when they are released, but it will bring readers to my book list, And if they decide to read my other books, I need to have something to offer them. If they don’t they still read the charity works which helped others. The platform needs to be there either way.

I am shaping my brand even before I release my books, even on my personal profile. I am getting to the heart of who I am as a person, and as a writer. Because a writer must be themselves, and sell who they are. Which is why honesty is so important. One of many reasons why I am honest even if I lose friends. I’d rather the right people stick around. I want to narrow the focus of my readers and even my friends.

I want my friends and readers to accept me and read from me because they know me, and care about what I have to offer. But how can anyone do that if I wasn’t honest?

Writing is about sharing your soul. Even if you write really silly stories in worlds that don’t exist. Characters drive stories, and those characters live inside of you. Make the best of them, own them, and share them. Make your platform, and go forth into the publishing wilderness. But always be true to who you are, only change when enlightenment demands it.
