"I had to make my own living and my own opportunity! But I made it! Don't sit down and wait for the opportunities to come. Get up and make them!"
-Madam C.J. Walker, creator of beauty products.
I had never heard of Madam C.J. Walker and boy, have I been missing out! While reading her biography, this week, I learned that not only she was the first female self-made millionaire but she was born in 1867 of parents who were slaves! She made things happen for herself and her family. After reading her life story, I found it absolutely amazing how true this quote is.
That is actually why I have been missing the Rain, a little. I have been very busy. Maybe I should say, I have been harvesting the fruits of all my labor. I didn't just sit down, over the winter. I didn't wait up for an opportunity to knock on my door. I went out there and knock on doors! Many didn't open. A few did. And now, I need to learn to get up 1 hour before my regular time, if I want to make everything happen in a day. It is a fantastic feeling!
I got to go! Today, I have 2 classes to attend. I have to call a few clients. Tomorrow, home inspection and couple of showings. But first, workout time! This is what I have been "working" for! And it feels good!
