Vegan Family Grocery Haul

Vegan grocery haul alert!

In this haul, I use Instacart to bring groceries to our house while I worked on a project.

Instacart is amazing! You just use the app to order and pay for your groceries, and they send someone to shop and deliver the food to you.

In this grocery haul, I spent about $200 at Whole Foods.

Of course, you don't have to shop at places like Whole Foods to be vegan -- Wal-Mart, Trader Joe's, Safeway, Kroger and Aldi all have vegan options.

Did you notice how I butchered "Worcestershire" in this video? After filming, I watched a YouTube tutorial, and practiced saying it for 15 minutes. I can finally pronounce it right now! At least I think so lol

May 2017 Intentions

May 2017 Intentions

This article was originally posted on my other site, This Biz Life.

I looked at my post from December 2016 to see how I was doing on leaving behind things that no longer serve me and moving forward to greatness, and realized I hadn't posted an update in a while.

So here goes...

Intentions & Reflections:

Build & Serve -- My focus for May is to work on growing my audience (reaching 40K YouTube subscribers -- currently at 39,733 and grow my email list by 200 people), provide quality content (on YouTube & the podcast) and focus on money-generating activities.

Mo'Money Mo' Money -- I set an income goal for the first time since February! I swear it's like the universe heard me right away because dope paid opportunities are falling right on my lap.

Digital Girl Going Offline -- One of the things I've embraced this year is the power of offline paid opportunities. Even though it can be very uncomfortable (and I don't feel like I know what the hell I'm doing lol), I love being able to connect and hug folks in person.

I did my first paid cooking demo in Baltimore back in March!
