This week’s blog is about consistency. I started my business in 2015. I started doing gift baskets and release my first book entitled Dream the Impossible. Throughout the years, I have had many failures and successes. I wear many hats and my plate is full. I have always prayed over my businesses. I stop doing gift baskets in 2016. My focus was writing and school.
Through out my, journey I have let fear win. Fear of the unknown, and lack of support. In 2017, I decided to start TJInspires. Fast-track to 2020, with Covid-19, I wanted to start a new business. Why, would you start a new business in middle of a world crisis. Go read my book, Faith over Fear:https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/179168503X/ref=dbs_a_def_rwt_bibl_vppi_i10
Demond and I, decided to start Inspired_Scentz. Since 2015, I have released over 10 books. Never give up! Keep pushing and praying!
Inspired_Scentz is aromatherapy business. We have soy wax candles, wax-melts, room sprays, and bath salts. I call, it the Black version of Bath and Body works.
Thanks, to Demond Alverez for pushing me and not letting me give up! Sales for Inspired_Scentz and the books have sky-rocketed during the month of June. All Glory belongs to God!
Consistency is the key to success. Consistency is the key to success. Consistency leads to habits. Habits form the actions we take every day. Action leads to success. Trust the process: One of the biggest challenges I’ve had is the belief that I have to be 100% clear about a project before I can start on it. Sometimes you just have a burning desire to do something but don’t have all the steps to get there. Then trust that you will be given the knowledge, tools and resources that you need to help move you along the path to where you want to go.
Find out works best for your business. Consistency is far more important that you can imagine. Being consistent allows you to establish awareness, build trust and deliver your services efficiently and profitably. Without it, your business is more likely to fail.
Try something new. This is no big mystery: you never know if you'll like something until you're brave enough to try. Don't overwhelm yourself by biting off more than you can chew; break your main goal into smaller goals or milestones that you can accomplish along your way.
Don’t be afraid: What do you have to lose? It takes courage to try something new. You aren’t going to be an expert at something right off the bat, so learn to check your ego at the door and just have fun!
For this business, I prayed; and the LORD hath given me my petition which I asked of him! Run your business according to the Word of God. Respect your customers, serve them well, go above and beyond, never wish badly on someone, always bless even in the face of persecution.
Business Success Prayer
Heavenly Father, thank you that your word enlightens my eyes, purifies my soul and preserves me for eternal life. Your word says that I can do all things through you who strengthens me. Please give me the strength I need to succeed in business. Bless my work with prosperity for my good and for your glory. May the love of the Father, the tenderness of the Son, and the presence of the Spirit, gladden my heart and bring peace to my soul, today and for all days. Through Jesus Christ, our Lord, Amen.

How to Stay Focused When You Feel Like Giving Up.....
What is the one true obstacle we all must face down as entrepreneurs? Overcoming fear. Keeping the faith. Not throwing in the towel when it gets hard. Entrepreneur or not, life tests us. We receive challenges every day in the form of things not going quite as we had planned -- and that’s the lesson, you can plan, but you can’t really plan.
It starts with your thoughts: The key is not letting your thoughts get in the way of where you want to go. The key is staying so motivated that nothing can sway you -- including the prospect of failure. We’ll all face down failure at one point or another. We might also face down exhaustion, confusion, curve balls, and many moments where stopping seems tempting. However, if there is one muscle that is absolutely imperative to strengthen, no matter who you are or what you’re doing, it’s your faith in yourself.
Recognize how far you’ve come. What are you doing if you’re not living, and living fully? I’ll let you answer that. Reflecting back, recognize what you’ve accomplished. Use that as inspiration to keep going. You’ve overcome hardship before, you’ll do it again.
Get grateful. Complaining is a pretty common thing. “It’s hard.” “I don’t want to.” “I’m tired.” While I support listening to your needs and taking great care of yourself, sometimes you just have to jump the hurdle one leg at a time and be grateful that you have legs at all. We make a lot of excuses. Ninety percent of the time they’re cop-outs for fear. That little voice in your head that tells you to give up? That’s your ego. You can easily put it in time-out by shifting your perspective. List some things you’re grateful for. Write them down. Say them out loud. Tell someone you’re grateful for them. Appreciate everything that you have, and you’ll realign with your readiness to receive a whole lot more. Keep complaining, and you’ll keep yourself stuck.
Know where you’re going: Have a clear vision or idea of what the outcome of the project is going to look like once you’ve completed it. Having a clear and specific aim helps to keep you focused as you work through the project, and can be especially valuable when you hit any doubts or challenges.
Commit to it: Commit to your Dreams and don’t get sidetracked by other ideas or requests. Every day spend time doing something that takes you towards your end goal, even if it’s only for 10 minutes.
Trust in the process: One of the biggest challenges I’ve had is the belief that I have to be 100% clear about a project before I can start on it. Sometimes you just have a burning desire to do something but don’t have all the steps to get there. Then trust that you will be given the knowledge, tools and resources that you need to help move you along the path to where you want to go.
