There are a million and one reasons why we hesitate, hold back and procrastinate on our goals. Ditto for those wanted and unwanted opportunities that fly our way.

Like the time in Year 8 when I prayed, hoped and wished the 3 o’clock bell would never come around.

I still had the crumpled up note in my pocket that Lee Frost shoved into my hand at lunch time. It read, “I will pash you on one condishon,

Can I share something with you? I never in a million years thought I would give a damn about passive income, let alone be creating it for myself.

I honestly feel like the second you try to level up in your business, there’s a new obstacle or challenge you have to face that’s bigger and scarier than the last one. As if the powers-that-be decided they were going to Truman Show the crap out of you for their entertainment.

Today, you are going to learn all about how my life got flipped turned upside down… sorry, couldn’t resist!  😂What I was meant to say is that you’re gonna learn how to create your very own wordpress blog today!

A little back story: I’m quite embarrassed to admit that I didn’t think of this until I entered the 5th month of running this blog. I realized that some of you reading House of Brazen are completely new to the blogging world and don’t know the first thing about starting your own blog,

I’m sure you’ve heard through the grapevine by now, but just in case you haven’t, you can use affiliate links on Pinterest again! Can I get a woop woop!!!!

Pinterest banned the use of affiliate links back in 2015, which was pretty heartbreaking for some bloggers because they were making 90% of their income from the platform. Yikes. But there’s no need to cry over spilled milk any longer because IT’S BACK BABY!
