Appreciate. Always.

Appreciate. Always.

Hello everyone, and my apologies for the delay in releasing this next blog post. It’s been too long! I can only hope that you actually noticed, and were patiently awaiting my next piece (lol!)

Anywho, today’s post is all about appreciation. And I hope you know that whoever you are, or however many or few people read this, I appreciate each and every one of you for doing so.

Hello everyone! So if you know me, you know that I have been ostracized from society for being a widely feared and vastly misunderstood “Health Nut.” I’m one of those crazy earthlings who actually wants to be able to comprehend the ingredient labels on the products I use and consume. How dare I! The horror!

Perhaps you’re curious to learn about my kind? About the skincare routine of one of us… Well then you’ve come to the right place… Enter If You Dare. Muahahaha

Financial Independence & The Side Hustle

Financial Independence & The Side Hustle

“Dolla Dolla Bill Y’all” – Wyclef Jean

What does financial independence mean to you? For me, it’s the ability to travel to Martha’s Vineyard with my girlfriends and start the island’s first biker gang. Throwing all caution to the wind!

In this post I will discuss some of my favorite side hustles. No need to get your panties in a twist, they are all 100% legit.
