Progress & failure made this past week

Q1:2020 [Week of February 10th] (ON TRACK) Refine milestone 1 goal, apply and schedule proven and trusted strategies, and adjust to the new regular weekly schedule by Feb 29th

This week was filled with mixed emotions. I started a new job this week. If you have been following me then you will know that about a year ago I was fired once again from a job and decided to go after being a full-time entrepreneur once again even though I didn't have all the resources I needed. My amazing wife was going to pick up some of the slack on the slow months or we would give suffer through until I was able to make it happen. After a year, I had not made financial progress. At least not enough to create any proof of concept that this strategy was best for our family. So I put some applications out to see if getting a job would solve some of our most immediate problems. This time I had a better guideline of the job I'd be willing to take:

  1. (EXCEEDED) The job had to solve our immediate financial problems by paying at least $1,500 per month
  2. (RENEGOTIATED) The job must not require more than 45 hours per week to perform as expected. Allowing at least 40-50 hours per week for me to work on my businesses.
  3. (AGREED) The job offers a Kayla approved health insurance plan or the ability to earn an additional $350 for private insurance payments.
  4. (AGREED) I must be able to run my businesses without a conflict of interest with the job
  5. (EXCEEDED) The company offering the job must be making more than 2.5 Million per year, an actual opportunity for advancement and management & ownership will not be threatened by my work ethic and business curiosity.
  6. (AGREED) Ideally related to my entrepreneurial experience.

So I took a position that didn't meet all of my criteria but it was close enough to move forward on my entrepreneur journey and I have high hopes that this job will provide me with critical skills as a Life & Business Investor.
