The Art of Hustling

So last week I got laid off from my aparrel job. I design shirts, and apparently the company
can't afford my services anymore. haha no I'm kidding. Anyways, the economy is rough,
so I decided- you know what. I'm gonna freelance for a bit, make some extra cash and travel.
I've always wanted to travel and work for myself. So here's my oppurtunity....

Only thing is I don't know how to hustle. I've been getting freelance work, only I don't know how
to price it. Everyone tells me different things. I guess I just need to stick to my guns and come up
with a rate..... and stick to it.

I'm such chicken shit- that when it does come to my rate- I'm not always confident about how to price
it. I know I'm good, I know my services are worth my rate, so whats my problem.

My friend Mike said I need freelance boot camp- No shit I also need confidence boot camp...

Anyways here's a nice painting I did the other month. Sorry Blog I've neglected you.
This is Flip it from the Beginnings Art Show- hosted by Painted Apples

Can't Touch This!

So maybe two weeks ago I started running. I'm training for the OC Mud Run, and hopefully come October-
I will be doing the Long Beach Marathon. (fingers crossed)
the Mud Run is 6 miles- so I've been trying to up it every week. I started with 1 mile- and now this week I should
be up to 3 miles.

Let me tell you- running is not easy. But i try to motivate myself by thinking about how awesome my abs will be come summer-
oh and I like to picture myself winning a marathon
- it goes something like this-
I'm the underdog that somehow magically wins the marathon with only half a left lung ( true story ).
Then I'll receive tons of news press and make it onto the cover of TIME magazine- as a young 26 year old cancer survivor that won a 13 mile half marathon.

My dog Pepper will also make it on that cover as well- since he helped me train, PLUS he was a big part of my support group.

Haha ok I just went off on a tangent. But no seriously come summer- I plan to be chilling on the beach with my awesome abs while drinking a Pacifico ( and yes magically that Pacifico will have no calories). And I'll be humming "Can't TOUCH this!" as homage to my amazing abs! So I guess I'll end on that note-

Thank you to my amazing friend Steve who introduced me to this video- ( I watched it like 5 times last night!)

enjoy people

Everyday People
