Support? Anyone, Anyone at All?

I am a very supportive person. Mainly because I've never been a jealous person. If I have a friend who is selling something or starting some sort of new endeavor I try to always be there for them. Yet, I've found myself surrounded by people who aren't as supportive as I am. This is so very frustrating to me because the people I think should be front row and center to support me are only people who I have done things for in the past. But time and time again I find out that y friends and even some family members just aren't the supportive type.

I started a group called Diva's Connection which has three main goals: 1. Socialize (Visit our MeetUp site HERE) 2. Network (I'm a small business owner and I want to connect with other small business owners my business but also to help other women entrepreneurs grow their businesses) and 3. Mentor (a DC jr. group is coming soon). DC is 58 members strong and I know 3 of the divas personally. 1 of them I created the profile for myself and NONE of the 3 have attended any of the 25 past meetups. Really? What's the issue? This is not a hard thing to do.

I also own an online jewelry store Simply Unique which I promote mostly on Facebook. I'm over 600 friends strong on FB yet I don't think I've ever made a sale on FB. As a matter of fact I can't even get people to 'share' the link to my store with their friends. WTF is the problem? I'm so frustrated I can't even fully express it here in this post.

Anyway - what frustrations have you had in gaining the support of others in any of your endeavors?

Hmmmm. Maybe I need new friends!

BOOK REVIEW: "I Almost Forgot About You" by Terry McMillan

While I'm not a Terry McMillan fanatic, I do usually enjoy her books. This title was hard to read and confusing from the very beginning. I understand that Georgia is on a mission to find herself but the books is long and gets boring often. Plus there are way too many characters to keep up with. I will still pick up a Terry McMillan book in the future but I do not recommend this book.



BOOK REVIEW: Habit Changers by M.J. Ryan

I really enjoyed reading this book. Habit changing is one of things I've focused on in my 30s as I try to make changes in my life that will make me a better person. This book makes habit changing actually seem doable. I have learned how to reach my goals by breaking things down and doing it in a way that makes it easier and more likely for me to accomplish. I recommend this book to anyone looking to make positive changes in their life.


Here's two links to purchase the book.

Random Thoughts: Social Media Lies

Here are three random thoughts that are loosely related: 
Lying on social media should be considered a crime. You're on here making folks feel inferior; wishing their lives were as 'exciting' as yours when what you're presenting is only part of the story and sometimes it's just the part you made up. Some one recently commented on one of my photos "who does your hair because it looks good one every photo" Now, is my hair ALWAYS done? Hell nawl...but I aint taking and posting pictures when it's not. One of my recent boyfriend is all over social media with his new girlfriend. If I think about it long enough my feelings are a little hurt because one of the main things we constantly bumped heads about was social media...him flirting with other girls, we weren't friends on FB and I can't remember him EVER mentioning me or our relationship on social media. But here's the thing, despite him publicly showing how in love he is with this girl he is …
