I hustle pretty hard. You know this about me. If you've been following along the last few months, you might've seen my income report increase from $478 in January to $1,100 in May. I'm consistently improving, learning, making changes, & doing whatever it takes to create interesting content & engage with readers. Grow as you go, that's what I like to say!

In case you didn't read the news, I'm quitting my corporate job! I'm going to focus on my blog, creating great content, being active on social media, enhancing my blogging & social media coaching business, & gaining a small handful of freelance clients.

Although I wonder about how everything will go, I have to remember that the path to success takes courage. It's not easy. But I'm ready to experience it first-hand & grow as a person, business owner, entrepreneur!


I'm currently binge watching the first season of Queen of the South on Netflix because Season 2 premieres June 8 10/9c on USA Network. Fred & I watched the whole thing in like three days. I literally was captivated within the first minute. You'll see what I mean.

I mentioned on Facebook that I was watching Queen of the South for this campaign & my friends were watching it too! Here's what one friend had to say:

"I really enjoyed this show I've been waiting for season 2 for months!" then she added, "You are gonna be on the edge of your seat the closer you get to the last few episodes."


Teresa Mendoza is a strong character with some pretty amazing survival instincts. Queen of the South Season 2 let's you see Teresa come into her own as she starts to recognize her power & potential, much like my own transition from the corporate world to the land of entrepreneurship. We get to witness her rise to become ultimate queenpin!


Without giving too much of the show away, the new season revolves around the drug cartel underworld & focuses on Teresa's relationship with Camila Vargas, her mentor & formidable foe. Loyalties are tested. Love becomes a vulnerability. Moral compromises must be made. By the end of the season, we'll come to realize that there can only be one queen. Yikes! I know I'll be at the edge of my seat.


As a female entrepreneur, I can relate to the feelings, the struggles, the issues these women have as they're trying to expand their business. It's not simple. But the best moments in life usually aren't easy, are they? Cheers to becoming a badass businesswoman!


In fact, I just spent the last few days working my butt off to complete some campaigns, send emails, plan for coaching sessions, & simply be my best business self. I planned everything out, created to do lists, & executed tasks as necessary. I feel super accomplished!


Stay tuned for some upcoming collaborations! One is with a beer brand & one is with an ice cream brand. I also have two press trips coming soon: one to Torrance, California & another to Reno, Nevada. I'm going all over the place & that's how I like it. And I love that it's all considered business!


If you need some inspiration, don't forget to watch Queen of the South June 8 10/9c on USA Network or binge watch Season 1 on Netflix like I did. I'm ready to slay my every day. Are you? :]
