The Significance Of Owning A Business/Brand.

✨ First of all, shop with me: www.theedajbrand.com

I am so thankful that I have the mindset and the www. at my fingertips to even think of wanting to start a business. I am even more thankful to have the tangible resources to actually put my thoughts into action. It comes with a lot of hard work, goal setting and focus, but with high risk comes high reward. If you are on the verge of starting or wanting to start a business, but need a little more convincing, read my reasons as to why it’s so significant to start one (especially in your twenties).

The Ability To Give Back To The People.

Honestly, if you’re doing this to make a quick buck, i’m judging and side-eyeing you heavy. I believe a portion of your businesses profits should be given to back to the people (especially to your own communities, and communities that are the most vulnerable and less fortunate). I don’t want to eventually be a million-dollar of 6 figure business, and keep everything to myself. The money will always come back, especially if you’re doing things the right way and you’re legit. To keep every dime to yourself is greedy and selfish and … we already have enough of those people at the top.

You Get To Do What You Love.

Who doesn’t want to do what they love … and get paid? I know, I do. I feel like that’s one way to ensure that money will never be a problem, when you have a skill that you’re passionate about. For example, if you’re a MUA and that’s your passion, yeah you can get paid for it, which is great, but some people don’t feel like “i’m only in this for the money and that’s it.” They do it because, at the end of the day, they love it. Think about it like this, if all the money in the world was gone tomorrow, would you still be doing what you love, your passion? If the answer is yes, then you’re doing it right.

Freedom.

The definition of freedom is “the power or right to act, speak, think as one wants, without hindrance or restraint.” When you become your own boss, you have just that … freedom. You can wake up in damn … Tulum, Mexico on a Monday at 2:00pm with a margarita in your hand and start working. Of course, it’s best to have a steady schedule lol, but if you wanted to, you could. There’s no one you must answer to, that’s one of the perks!

Setting Your Family & Friends Up With Future Opportunity.

This one is pretty significant for me. It is important that I create something big and grand that I can eventually pass down to my children and also give the people that I love around me an opportunity to work in a space and not have to worry about all of the extra stress that comes with working a traditional 9 – 5. Some of us are not born into direct opportunity, we have to create it. Generational wealth people, generational wealth is the goal.

Of course, there are plenty of more reasons, why it’s significant to own a business or a brand, but there are a few that pushed me to want to be apart of the business owner sector. If you planning on opening a business or have a great business idea, please do it! It’s like the new trend lol, don’t wait … put action behind that shit.

If you have a business/brand, I would love to support! Link it below in the comments, let’s show support.

→ How To Create A Digital Vision Board & What The Hype Is All About?

Vision boards and writing down goals will forever be a check mark, a major yes, but first off, what is a ‘vision board’? I’m sure many of you have heard about the term and the hype surrounding it. But it is exactly what is sounds like, you’re taking your visions and putting them on a board, so everyday you wake up or go to bed you see them, so you don’t forget them. Now, if you want to know how to organize your vision board tailored to what you want, then keep reading.

Inspiration.

It’s all about inspiration here people. The reason behind all of this is to help you and inspire you, as you take the necessary steps to achieve your goals. I am a very visual person, and I found out that when I need inspiration the most I turn to pictures and videos. It really helps my motivation and overall mood. I get inspired by so many things weather it’s; people, food, music, style, quotes, art, books ect. When you want more for yourself, you take the steps to get that. Now … start with a damn vision board.

Digital Or Physical Vision Boards?

There are two types of vision boards you can create, digital or physical. Both are absolutely okay. A physical vision board is when you go out and buy a pretty board/frame and you cut out pictures from magazines, or print out from the computer that inspire you, arrange them a board and hang it up, somewhere you can see it each day. It can be time consuming and in my opinion like, who buys magazines anymore? If people are buying magazines, i’m sure they wouldn’t want to cut it up. Wasting paper. 😉

Now digital boards… digital boards is where it’s at. Pinterest is my favorite digital media platform to spend time. It’s like a big digital board. I take images off of Pinterest (follow my Pinterest by the way) and add them into a collage maker. It’s quick and easy, you can take screenshoots, save it as your background, study it each day and have it forever. It’s also easy to go in and change or add something.

How To Organize A Vision Board?

The organization of a vision board is important. You have to have photos on it that have some sort of meaning. The way you can organize it is by categories, for example: a section for career goals, relationship goals, travel goals, family goals, friendship goals, mental health goals, house goals, fitness/health goals, car goals, inspiring quotes and fashion goals. You can also make several different ones, like a single vision board for each area of the area I listed above. I also create it a year at a time, because a year gives enough time for you to complete half, majority or all of your vision. Mind you, there is no rush and everyone’s path is different. Just work towards your goals everyday … you know.

It’s so easy to get tangled up in life’s mess and lose sight of the bigger picture and to be honest, it’s a roller coaster. But I think the beauty in all of this is that our lives are up to us. We have have to create our future… go out into the world and take what we want. When you have a vision… you go for it.
