I am so swamped with work while I'm here in Tokyo, Japan. Today, (the 10th in Japan, 9th in America) clients started swarming in seeking voice overs and videos! I am absolutely grateful for all the business that is stirring up and coming my way. However, it is bittersweet as I only have less than 3 days left here in Japan. Regardless, as an entrepreneur who is able to work remotely from anywhere in the world there are many wonderful benefits! Hard work, focus, and dedication truly pays off.
So to make sure I stayed on track today completing all of the work I have to do, I created a to do list on my phone. I first tweeted it for accountability, if it's out there for the world to know then I make sure I am a woman of my word and stick to it. However, I do not have control of outside forces and unfortunately my work has been halted as someone is using the washing machine which is right outside our apartment (not good for recording audio files). Regardless I still have tons of time to complete my work, just later than I previously thought. I even added a new job onto the list from another client. All of this work does cut into my adventuring around Tokyo for later today, but work comes first! As an entrepreneur, I have to stick with PRIORITIES and DISCIPLINE!
Along with all this fascinatingly fun work I have to do today, I am also unveiling my new logo! Last night I put it together and it looks really nice (if I do say so myself). I thought of creating a new logo because Brotherhood of the Cross and Star kindly displayed my logo on their website for voicing their sermons and I figured it might be time for an update. I had the older one (on the left) created about 2 years ago. Check these out:
2018 has just arrived and already I know it is going to be the best year ever! I know this because I keep thinking positive, I keep sending out positive energy to the world and therefore it keeps coming back to me. I constantly humble myself by being thankful to God for giving me the gift of another beautiful day. When the mind is right, everything is right. When your mind is consumed by anxiety, fear, and all the negative things in our world then you have to reprogram your mind. It starts within, for me it started with self-love. Above all else I needed to recognize myself as a being to be loved in order to be able to give love and spread positive vibes in our world. So start off 2018 in the right way! No more doing things you should not be doing, start doing all the things you should be doing like improving your mind, your body, and your spirit. Do it for you, do it for our world. Be the change you wish to see in our world! Create the change! Show the change!
I strive everyday to be the best version of myself because I want young people to know they are worthy, that they can achieve their goals and dreams regardless of where they come from. -Shenteria Marie
