I am REALLY struggling with life, business, and pretty much everything.

I haven’t written a rant lately.

I don’t like to.

I know a lot of people like to read personal stories. I like to read them sometimes, but I mostly write pieces to help someone improve their life. My thoughts, worries, and rants aren’t very helpful, but maybe they will help me. Maybe it is time to get some of these things off my chest!

I haven’t had hardly any time to work on my business over the summer. That being said, I really tried to write one piece for both Medium and Newsbreak at least four days a week. And guess what, my earnings are going down! I don’t think I have made over ten dollars all summer long on Newsbreak. I doubt I have made more than thirty or forty on Medium this summer.

I don’t know if it is because everyone is outside enjoying the summer. I hope that they are. I am hoping that September brings a new month and much better reads. But I am not sure whether or not I should be very hopeful.

My children are back in school and I couldn’t wait. I needed some time to refocus my energy on my business. However, I haven’t had the chance to FINALLY get caught up on my business and all of the farm work that I need to do.

Instead, I spent my first day off without children working at my part-time job. Even worse, I will be spending Monday there also. So, hopefully, on Wednesday, I will have time to sit down and get re-motivated with my writing (and my other work)!
