#F9Arts is an amazing journey and it also has taught me great many lessons. First it taught me teamwork. Three friends working together for making our first tyreseat. There are many obstacles and we solve one by one very patiently. We saw the vision and without much discussion we started to make tyreseat without knowing anything about it. That's called a startup. This lesson is also learned. If you have idea jump into it directly without discussing much into it. Many great ideas dies at this stage. Then we started to sell this things and roam place to place giving our card. We also start marketing our product online. Many people have encourged us for our initiative of making best out of waste. Many have shown their interest in partnership also.
This is not just a business for us. We didn't start just to make money out of it. We started because we see a clear concept of making something from a total waste product and how it also impact our environment. A wasteful product if beautifully crafted makes a clear point of selling itself.
I am very greatful to those friends who share this journey and stronger bond has developed through it between us. Today our friendship is just as it was before even though everyone of them at different cities. I am thankful that we share this business.
I learned this from 2 Corinthians 8:13-15. Our abundance should supply our brothers' and sisters' needs, but also their abundance will supply for our needs. So yes, we need to learn how to give to others according to our means, but we also need to be humble enough to receive from others when we are in need. This is what God calls "equality" and "fairness".

Making money in a way that gave me time freedom has been my goal since my 2nd daughter (Aysha) was born 20 years ago. .
At 20 I started my first #online#business selling American #streetwear via #ebay, so I could be home for Aysha as much as I could - Aysha caught neonatal #meningitis at 4 days old and was left brain-damaged .
Fast-forward 20 years and experience has taught me that a lot of the businesses I created may have contributed to #financial freedom BUT NOT really to the time freedom I searched for - I’m grateful for the clarity though 🙏
Learning to #trade, and other time/location freeing strategies, is helping me achieve my original #lifestyle goal of doing what I want, when I want, where I want & with whom I want - because all you need is knowledge, laptop and the internet.
#LIFElesson - Whatever you’re doing please make sure it [truly] aligns with how you want to #live your #life!
TIME, LOVE & FAMILY are so PRECIOUS ✌️❤️

This beautiful Japanese proverb reflects the uncertainty of life - life may be uncertain, but at least your skincare routine is #solid <3
‘Be happy for others’ 😀...
💥This was one of the most powerful lessons my Dad taught me when I was 5 ...
🚛My brother got to ride in my uncle’s 18 wheeler and I didn’t. I was in a snit, my Dad suggested I change my attitude...
😏 I probably didn’t that moment, but over time the lesson stuck with me...
✅ It’s served me well over the years to help me reduce any envy and absolute heart break...
✳️ That lesson helps me be less selfish and always gives me reason for celebration 🎉 because someone is always winning at something 🏆...
🙏🏻 Big thanks to my good ole Dad for that life changing lesson...
😁Feel free to tag someone you’re happy for today...
😊I’m especially happy for long time friend and superstar @bedroskeuilian today for the release of his already best selling book 📖 ‘Man Up’ (make sure you get it!)...
🎉Congrats B! 🔥🦍🦄 🧛♂️...

Always thank God 4 people who have a different skill set than you do. I've been trying to fix this toilet for a week. I had all the right tools, but didn't have the skill. One of the brothers from church came & fixed it in 45min! Thank you sir! #LifeLesson#LeadershipLesson#tg4grace
I was actually a little jealous that he was mowing the lawn! Of all the yard work this is my favorite. O’h the things we give up as parents to better our children 😂 I don’t tell him of course, he’ll use it against me to try and get out if it! Lol.
Life lesson of the day:
Be patient and sometimes, things just work themselves out.
So I tried again yesterday to make grape jam. (The last batch is now "grape syrup"). I have decided it's going to be part of our neighbor Christmas gifts this year so there was a little bit riding on this working. I ending up using all the sugar and pectin in our house. I thought, for sure, that it would work this time, but even after cooling down, the jam didn't set. I wasn't sure what to do. Do I just learned these "grape syrup" and still give them away? Do I buy more pectin and sugar and unseal the jars and try to thicken them or do I just start over all together?
I went to sleep unsettled, but I woke up to set jam! Moral of the story, somethings just take time. You're doing it right, just give it a minute.

1 month to the next show with @swoon_band. I have recently changed the way I approach shows and my relationship with the crowd (when there is one lolz), and I’ll try to do this every time we get on stage. I always felt very anxious and never really enjoyed performing at 100%, thinking more of the others’ perception. Then I realised we’re doing this also for ourselves, so I decided to try and have more fun, be more spontaneous, take a moment to talk to the people in front of me, a big jump for me as I was so paralysed. But the jump was worth it, because you can’t live for everyone else’s opinion, you can’t be everyone’s cup of tea, and you can only hope to deliver your message in the right way.
Next time it will be different, because I am looking forward to being on stage for real.
You are so blind, wanting what other people have, that u cant see your own qualities. We are not the same¡ we are different H. beings . If we want people be the same we better start cloning one person and erased the rest. We complement each other because our differences also for having similar tastes but our differences can be the difference on other person's life. *idontownthevideo*
You never understand someone's heartache until you feel the pain. To feel pain doesn't make you weak. Someone who is weak doesn't love. We are here because of love, God is love and to have him in your life only makes you stronger and to have him in your life only makes the pain in your heart heal quicker. Never regret anything in life just take it as a life lesson. To learn is to live and to live is to learn. What we've experience someone else has and someone else will. We are just bodies on this earth but always remember our spirits will live forever. -Natalia Barrera
