Yesterday after returning from my trip to Atlanta, I found myself in the midst of what some would consider a meltdown. I was overwhelmed to say the least. And while, I keep hearing people tell me that I make living the double life of a college student and entrepreneur easy, I will admit that it is nothing but.
I wouldn't be telling the truth if I didn't say that I find myself immersed in my dreams and the building of an empire so much that sometimes school seems like it comes second. I know better. I recognize that school is the foundation that can never be taken away from, which is why I would never quit and will always give it everything inside of me but sometimes, it is hard.
Lately, I've been coming to grips with the fact that I will soon be #adulting in a new way. The college girls days will soon be coming to an end and my next steps are right before my eyes. The good news is that I have been preparing for these moments. Doing things like not acquiring things that would leave me in a great deal of financial debt and being steadfast in building my business. When this college life is over, I will have a foundation to stand on. The bigger question is where will I be standing?
While in Atlanta, my publishing company 13th & Joan, hosted an event in my honor. "Breakfast with Jayla" was intimate and another opportunity for me to connect with new readers. It warmed my heart to know that my book Pretty & Educated was making a difference in the lives of others and it all made sense.
I'm learning that no matter how hard or challenging life gets, our real #lifegoals should be to make a difference. That's exactly what I plan to do. If you are not subscribed to my YouTube Channel, you are totally missing out. I'm launching new plans and you will not want to miss them.
