“How do I make money online?”

Many of my friends asked me that question because of my last post about 5 wrong ways to make money online this 2021.

In fact, many people even say that making money online is a lie. They think everything is already created, and there is no way to compete with the famous people that are actually making money.

The reality is that you don’t have to reinvent the wheel, create the next social network, or make a product that will solve a problem that everybody has to make good money working online.

All you…

No matter how much money you earn

There are no secrets to getting rich overnight, but there are some proven systems that can help you get rich.

The reality is that everyone has the same opportunity to be rich. Some may face greater obstacles than others. But the opportunity is there for everyone to seize.

Have you ever wondered why some people are rich, and others are not? Mostly it’s because of their lifestyle and mindset.

Many people spend their entire lives lamenting the situation in which they were born, while others strive every day to change it, and that differentiates us.

Also, they still believe in…

Why I left my YouTube Channel despite having a 6-figure business plan.

If you have been following me for a while, you may know that my life project and the first dream I had when I started content creation was having a YouTube Channel.

However, this was also my first big failure in the business world.

The most shocking thing is that the project did not fail because it was a bad idea or it didn’t operate properly.

I would be the first Dominican to have a tourist Channel in a country where tourism is the main economic focus, and I was not going to have competition in terms of advertising.


And you shouldn’t be angry about it.

When I was in high school, I had a best friend who gave his life for me. He listened to all my problems, tried to make me happy, and took me to nice places to spend time with me.

He treated me like a princess until the day he confessed his feelings for me.

When I told him that I didn’t see him that way, our friendship changed completely, and I was no longer “his pretty girl.”

He told me I was ungrateful, and I would never be happy because I only liked men who didn’t treat me well.


How sharing kindness can have a positive impact on you too.

I think most of us get caught up in our own lives, working on our jobs, and being busy, that we forget that the simplest things can have the most significant impact on someone else.

But something that I’ve realized in the last few months is that every time I help someone, I feel better about myself too.

According to research, there is a science behind the phenomenon called “loving-kindness.” It shows that learning and practicing kindness can profoundly affect your attitude, outlook, and even your health.

For that reason, look for ways to show random acts of kindness, not…

A good environment and a “decent” salary are not everything.

I got the job of my dreams 4 years ago.

I have the possibility to go to the office or be remote if I want. It’s at 10 minutes from my house (I can even go on my bike). And It’s working with the Software technology I liked the most since I was 15 years old.

Also, the environment and the people are incredible there, and I have benefits and a salary above the media in the country.

However, a few months ago I decided that I have to look for another job.

For many, this would be a ridiculous…

Success is not always where we expect.

Since I started my working life, it has always been easy for me to get jobs. In fact, I have never been unemployed since I was 17.

But for a long time, my focus has been on building successful businesses. That is why I have been using Twitter to create Networking and understand the public.

The other day I was reading a group of people complaining because they didn’t have a job. Even a girl wrote that “with 600 dollars a week, she would leave Twitter.

As I have always had the ease of getting jobs even in the best…

When external distractions don’t let us be.

Keeping a focused mind is hard.

You sit down, ready to have a productive day. You open a new draft and start working on what you have to do, but then you remember you have to send an email that was a priority hours ago.

Do you ignore your thoughts and stay focused or decide to send the email real quick?

Every day we have thousands of choices like these, a text from a friend, a last-minute meeting, breaking news, scroll social media, or something important you forgot to do yesterday.

For me, it’s like a constant battle between my…

Stop putting confidence as the number one skill of progress.

“If you are insecure, guess what? The rest of the world is, too. Do not overestimate the competition and underestimate yourself.” — T. Harv Eker

Every personal development book I have read put “self-confidence” as the number one skill to achieve your goals. Like if you have confidence, everything else will come by addition. Will you start a business? You need the confidence so it will be successful. Do you want a partner? Confidence is what will make her fall in love with you.

The problem is that self-doubt is more common and natural in our lives than confidence. One…

The “extra miles” are a lie.

Employees who have their schedule until 5:00 PM and it is 4:59 PM and they are already in the vehicle ready to leave, even with pending deliverables, is very difficult for them to be considered for positions of more responsibility. A team leader must have people ready to give their time 24/7. You have to go the extra mile.

I attended a work event where an “expert” explained everything you need to be the best employee in your office.

The fun part?

He didn’t talk about getting the job done.

The gurus and coach want us to believe that what…
