In 2018, I was asked to join Quora as a partner and write for them. I wasnโ€™t expecting an offer from them and was pretty excited. I took an English minor in college to work on my writing but never did I think I would ask questions and make money from it. This sounds easy but I soon found out it broke my most important rule.

Donโ€™t waste your time.

I was wasting time to make about a dollar an hour to write a question.

A dollar an hour sounds easy but it really wasnโ€™t.

For my very first check from Quora, I made $32.83, which isnโ€™t bad. โ€ฆ


Life can ruin your day only if you let it

Each day I wake up and have a positive attitude. So you may ask how do I do that? Well, today Iโ€™m going to give you my secret. There is nothing magical or mysterious about what I do and you may be able to do the same.

This took me years to get in this mindset, and I had to make sacrifices to do that. โ€ฆ


Not every day will go like you planned it would

As I write for the 151st day in a row, some quick thoughts come to mind.

  • Each day will not go like you planned it โ€” life happens.
  • You need to adjust your writing schedule to plan for other events.
  • Family comes first, so your writing takes a back seat from time to time.
  • When you change your daily routine, there is a domino effect and you lose your time to write.
  • On a good note, your fans come out of nowhere and start following you.

Today was one of those days and I donโ€™t know where the day went.

So a short one to keep the streak alive. โ€ฆ
