I'm a summer baby, born June 16th. I was raised in North Carolina so I love the sun and the summer and I hate saying good-bye to it. Labor Day weekend makes the end of summer feel too real. The beaches, bars and cookouts are packed with people partying hard. Knowing they have to go back to school, cubicles, or whatever job on Tuesday, myself included.
Working in the school system allows me to really enjoy the summer free of the "Monday Blues". Reflecting back on Summer 2015 I can't help but smile! I made new friends, with the help of my business partner I completed another script and I opened myself up to attend events I may never have went to on my own. It's been real Summer 2015. sigh*
Moving forward towards the last 3 months of the year, I plan on upping my goals, I was recently introduced to "success rituals"; basically creating a system to be more consistent in different areas of my life. Here is what I have planned for this remaining 3 months:
- Get back on track with my health & fitness
I've gain 30+ lbs since my local gym closed, my car accident and pure laziness. I've been very resistant to going to the next closest gym, making every excuse to avoid it but things need to change. Besides being health what's motivating me to be healthy is I can't fit into any of my cute clothes and feel very uncomfortable with the weight gain. I will be attending the gym nearest me 3-4 times a day. It's in my schedule, my clothes are ready.
My brother is actually a personal trainer but he lives to far for me to train with him he gave me his workouts for his clients and meal plan so I am ready to get started and shed this weight.
- Increasing my income.
I recently quit one of my school jobs (yes I have more than one!) so I need to increase my income ideally making more than the job I quit. I would like to make up the lost income from taking on more paid acting jobs, my blog and my side hustles. But you ask "Brittney, why would you quit a job with definite income to try out 3 things that you are not sure you will make money from?"
To you I say, theses 3 things truly make me much happier than that one job.
- More scripts more series for DopeEgo
I run a production company called DopeEgo we are coming up on our 1 year anniversary in November. I am so proud of the direction and positive response our series "Coming Home" is getting. We have plans to release two more series and possibly a movie very soon. I am learning new ways to promote the show and production company to gain more viewers.
Here are my goals for the next 3 months, written and released to the public. I encourage you to please hold me accountable. Offer up advice or send me some encouraging words. Comment below and let me know what you have in store for the 3 months of 2015.
