It has been a LONG time since I've updated this blog. Over a year, actually. For those people that follow my blog, I am truly sorry for being so lax and leaving you in the dark. Things have been pretty crazy for me. You see, I made a movie, went to Cannes, got it distributed, yada yada yada. Well, actually, I'm stuck in the "yada yada yada" right now.
Since my film is getting distributed throughout the USA and Canada in August, I'm at a bit of an impasse until then. I can't exactly work on my next film, because I haven't turned a profit for my first one. That means that I have nothing to show my worth to potential investors and whatnot. Trust me, though-- There WILL be another film this year; maybe two. It's just a matter of time.
That being said, it leaves me with a lot of time on my hands. If you know me, you know that I can't just sit here and do nothing... I need to work somehow. So, I decided to get back into the work from home business that I blogged about. I've been cashing checks from this company for over $100 each month even when I wasn't even working. That's the beauty of residual income: I am earning money on a business I set up years ago.

So, I went into my account and checked on things. I still maintain the status of Director, which is fantastic. That means that I get a check every month. I'm very close to going back to Director II-- I just need to enroll one more person into the company as either a customer or to work from home. Looking back on the business that I used to have, I enrolled 23 people in my very first month. I thought back to how I did it, and my answer is simple: Social Media. I posted simple things on FaceBook, such as "Would anyone like to work from home?" and the like. I'm not in a position right now where I can actually do that because people wouldn't understand that I'm doing this to keep my mind occupied rather than working for an income. I really don't want to explain myself. (Can you blame me?)
I need to keep my mind busy. I need something to focus on. Yes, extra money is always fabulous, but this business will let me work when I want to and keep my mind off of other things-- such as my film and distribution for it. I did post a little something on my FaceBook page, saying that I was going to get back into it, and SEVEN people sent me messages about how they can get involved. I spoke with one of them, and she decided to give it a shot. I forgot how simple the business is!
There you have it. This company and work-from-home opportunity allowed me to stay home, build my casting business and eventually produce my own movie. It's a great company to work with.
