    ^ I think a lot of saving can occur just by fully COMMITTING to it.
    There is balance and self care and everything that also needs to occur of course but much of this is really intentionally choosing where you are placing your time.

    When you really break down each day what impacts your TIME and you CHOOSE wisely you will see results ( as long as there are enough customers to reach out to in your income streams ).

    That was the problem with 2021 ..... pandemic assistance ended for SO MANY people but the customer base numbers were simply not back yet.

    I'm recovering. Slowly but surely, I'm recovering.

    There was a positive shift where I am 99% sure I'll have $800 a month coming in from something I don't have to " fight " for ( since my work is mostly full commission sales ).

    So with the $800 a month coming in ...... I think I can " make it " on just clawing out $1200 from the job where I'm " circling " people with the sales process . That should be EASY . I got $700 so far ( Jan. 1-12 ) ! That will be my new ( easier ) " base line " .
    I'll still be aiming higher usually but 2k in earnings does " cover " me for the month now with my very low bills.

    I'll still try to lead each customer through the sale process but maybe I can take my foot off a little bit .
    If am feeling a lot of neediness from a customer ( causes me to dislike them ) I can back off and focus elsewhere instead of just trying to lead EVERYONE to a closed sale.

    Sometimes I can not decide what TO do.
    I could alternatively set the bar much higher and start spending a lot of time at the real estate office .
    I'm having a hard time seeing myself as this " full time career woman hustler " lately .
    It could just be because I was forced into a semi-retirement I didn't want due to Covid though !

    It's the FIRST time in my life ( basically since I was 16 ) that I can actually see the real option to work part time for an ongoing length of time. Of course it is a tempting option. I expect to do my roughly 30 hours a week thing now and go up to full time ( closer to 40 hours ) whenever I have an active real estate customer who is seriously looking.

    I hope to earn $500-600 each week from my little business and other assets.
    It may not appear much, but the quantity is customized to recuperation mode.

    Slowly but surely, I'm rebuilding. Been putting money away in a high-yield savings account, my credit score has improved.. things are heading in the right direction.
