Morning: Drink Bawls energy drink, let my dog out, get breakfast going. Do laundry, check my email. Do my back exercises, listen to my religious programs.

Work: Handle responding to emails and Google reviews, oversee employees ordering candy, cleaning the counters and restocking the shelves.

Evening: Listen to my religious programs, work on genealogy. Take medicine for my back, settle into bed.

“Believe in yourself. If something strikes you as interesting and that’s what gets you motivated, go with it. Stick with it; don’t let anyone stop you and don’t listen to the naysayers. Just keep going, and if your heart is in it, you’ll be a success.”
