My Goals Right Now

1) Contact my mentors

So I can have people I admire to learn from and bounce ideas off. And maybe teach and grow with as well

2) Learn copywriting

Same as get a paying gig, but on a more permanent basis and with a larger payment scale and more knowledge benefits.

3) Build An Automated Business

So I can have value to trade with other people AND time to spend on whatever I want.

4) Get A Paying Gig

So I can do experiments and see what I like and how to get capital off of it without worrying about food and small enjoyments and whatnot.
