    My business is annoying me right now so much !
    Just being HONEST. No one has bought anything in November and I *guess* since my bills are low it isn't a disaster but I would just be so much happier if it would clip along at least 2-3k earned a month.

    I'll sit here and do some deep breathing. It's not OVER till it's OVER !

    So .... I will be breaking out those Black Friday deals ha !
    Everyone will get 1-2 closed and hopefully I can at least get *something* .

    The holidays are hard .
    I'm just sick of fighting but I will haha ( I've already spent money on ads this month ).
    I can't not touch base with each lead because it's money I've already spend to get the leads.

    Out come the black friday deals ha.

    I will probably circle everyone and offer to reduce the retainer amounts for our team to lower numbers ( or payments spaced out ) to see if it sparks anyone to book.

    I have enough in savings to cover all bills for Dec. already but the point of all this effort is not just covering the bare minimums.

    I should be grateful for now though as well that as least those funds are there .

    I am just TIRED ( admittedly ).
    I also realize I can not expect people to buy without at least hearing a nice voice on the phone !
    Most people won't book something like that just using email and text ( which is too bad because it would be nice ).
    Goodluck Just keep fighting and everything will be back as it was before..

    ^ Thanks!

    I am just going to back offffff today and tomorrow.
    It's too near the holiday to get anyone to make a decision ( I'll keep my phone on if by chance they want to reach me ). Then on Friday I'll just send every lead a deal if they book in the next 4-5 days.

    A wise woman on this website said something like " You hustle for the sake of hustling " .
    If you go to your job or the club and you REALLY TRY and you don't " hit " ..... YOU still know that you gave it your all. You can let it " go " emotionally even if it's bad because you tried like hell.

    Happy relaxing over this lame holiday ladies.
    Happy money collecting after.

    Now that my bills are paid up I'll be able to toss more funds into savings. Geez this has been a process.

    ^ It feels that way huh ? Like ..... there is ALWAYS something else. I feel like I will always just have some random debt ( even if it isn't huge ) following me around at times.

    My goal is to be completely debt free and only saving / investing .
    It's all " balanced factoring in some other savings related things ( real estate projects ) but I never seem to just have even 3-4 k "sitting " in my account for a rainy day.
    I get close often. :/

    Getting caught up is always step 1 and then savings follows SOON after !
