Drinking Wine and Getting Paid


As you may know, I’ve spent the last four years of my life driving an 18-wheeler. I recently came off the road to focus on more important things like my health, my love life, and drinking more wine.

Going to drive truck is an excellent way to reduce living expenses because you can live on the truck, therefore you have no rent or utilities to pay. Eating out can really cost you, but I managed to keep my restaurants and groceries under $500 every month (my largest expense). I put all my household items in a storage ($90/mo) and I had a cell phone ($150/mo.) Low maintenance.

I was able to pay off some debt living this way and was just getting where I could start saving money. But man, while the time I had on the road was interesting and at times, a lot of fun, it’ll wear ya plumb smooth out. I got really tired of eating at the same fast food restaurant, dealing with every man in the trucking world hitting on me, having to walk a mile to get a shower, and never being home. trust me, I became very distant with my friends and family and my social life was zero.

I had started a side hustle last year to keep me busy during my home time (four days out of the month). And now I guess I’m kind of doing it full time. I really wish I could get the ball rolling and really get it going. My goal is to recruit two people by October so I can promote.

If you love drinking wine and getting paid for it and maybe you’d like to earn a few hundred extra every month before Christmas, holler at me: http://www.myttv.com/texaswinegypsy

PS, Did I mention you get a pretty cool discount on all the wine whether you’re selling or not!?! Yeah… this is my dream job!

Harness the Power


I’m sharing parts of this book with you because it’s too good not to! In this post, I’m referring to bullet point 2 in the picture of The Power: Several years ago, I greeted an older man with “how are you today?” His response was, “feeling blessed and highly received.” He said it with such enthusiasm and gusto you couldn’t  help but wonder what made this man so vivacious about his life.
I’d see him around town with a smile on his face, always talking to people; and their response to him was magnificent. They’d leave his presence with a smile in their face and a warm glow around them. His enthusiasm was contagious; he never complained. He turned negatives into positives. Amazing miracle worker is what he was.
I’ve never been able to say that I have ever felt blessed or highly received, but this book is making me see that I am — that despite all the shittiness I’ve been through, I don’t have to keep attracting it.
I encourage each of you to read The Power–(Especially if you’re a Negative Nancy like me!) lol
This book is so good I’m soaking it up and taking notes!!!
