Just a Side Hustle.

daddy-daughter09 Take this ?*@# job (or relationship) and shove it! Not to worry. Many have felt this way before. Career and business moves start here. Matchmaking too. Guess how? As just a side hustle. Going from hunch to the real thing. Step-up your game or blow-up your name? Channel frustration into invention.

Go to night school. Take a sabbatical. Work flex hours. Approach your hobby like finding a hubby. Jobs are like relationships. Sometimes you have to work on finding a better gig. Most times you have to work on self for a better match. No more drama at home or office? Turn passion into a money-making pipeline.

Coca Cola and the modern day Roller Coaster. Might have begun as experiments. Like how blind dates and affairs get started. Dot coms get loaded. Dreams get planted. Going from day job to play job. From idea to inception. Take it underground. Works for music artists and social networking superstars.

One wish for bliss? Turn fantasy into reality. It can take around three years. To get it right. Flush things out. Get past the fears. This could mean makeover or reinvention. Good for GM. And for M&M. Match lifestyle with passion at work. Or workstyle with your best life. Play job to dream biz?

Hustle and flow. What’s your brand? Niche? Delivery? Connect with the “who’s who” online and in primetime. Reinvention doesn’t mean reinventing the wheel. Just make sure style and substance bump your salary. It’s how stars are born, dreams are made and rollers get paid.

Recession 101.

daddy-daughter09 Bill Gates started Microsoft during a recession. It’s become one of the largest software companies in the world. What does Gates have in common with many? The big break. Going from idea to making money. See it in today’s headlines and tomorrow’s horoscope.

GM reinvention. Palin resignation. DL Hughley gets NY radio gig. Randal Pinkett as possible NJ Lieutenant Governor? Man on the moon 40 years ago. “Do the Right Thing” 20 years later. So take your pick. Before the big break, comes a big step. Start up. Step up. Start over. Step out. Start now.

Cancer, Capricorn. Leo, Libra. What’s your sign? It tells something about personality. But what does it say about prospects? Success is not based on zodiac sign. But on being yourself. Do you. Do the things that most don’t do. To have the things that most won’t have.

Sotomayor nomination. All-star game first pitch. NAACP historic speech. Healthcare debate. Here’s the deal. Obama’s big break made him President. But long ago he decided to follow his heart. To live, love, learn, laugh. And his legacy? Maybe Affirmative Action’s return on investment. 

Speaking of legacy. Will the King of Pop rest in peace? After a star-studded tribute the rumors continue. Maybe the price is right. Or you got next. For the green light. Talent over privilege. Wealth over broke. Knowledge over ignorance. Dream over stuck. That’s right. You deserve a break today.

What’s Next for Your Biz Idea?

daddy-daughter09 Will Michael Jackson’s legacy live on? Could GM’s highs and lows explain how? Here’s a company that grew leaps and bounds. Then hit some rough road. But they quickly came out of bankruptcy. Wanna be startin’ something? That biz idea? Look at the man/woman in the mirror.

GM had to change or re-arrange to keep making the dough. What brings such change? The need for new money. Benji’s to spend. Passion at work. A good living. Ready to achieve the next goal? Becoming Layoff Proof. Career Makeover. Start a business. Reinvent or re-brand. Dust-off your dreams. Know the tradeoffs?

It’s like needing to lose a few pounds. Get back your six-pack. What makes someone change?  Maybe a blowout, burnout or bailout. You blow a tire, fuse, shirt size. You are sick & tired of being sick and tired. Maybe a jail-free second chance. A loved one passes on. Painful? Yes, these situations can cause a change reaction.

GM expects to thrive again. After making cost-cutting moves. Building a new business model. Taking calculated risks. It’s all in a day’s work. Not just for the Automaker. But also for the 21st century go-getter. Get back in stride again. Feel brand new. Step-up your game. Set-off your ride to fame. Don’t stop til you get enough. Or get it right. 

Change is not always radical. But it’s good to clear the air. Grow beyond your fears. Live each day smiling from ear to ear. Take a paycut? If it gets you out a rut or from a nut. Make six figures? Believe it then achieve it. Why you gotta change or re-arrange? Because success as a hot-stepper depends on it. So, good luck. And sweet dreams!
