Since I started my online business, I have loved the challenges of researching articles, coming up with topics to write about, writing posts that I hope people are interested in reading, and learning how to create my own website.  I wake up every morning ready to open up my laptop and see what I can create!

However, today I had one of those days where I just couldn’t get motivated.  You know what those days are like–you start something, but then everything in the world distracts you.  I must’ve pulled up a post I was working on ten times, but I started browsing the internet, scanned through social media, and just in general got nothing done!

Now days like this aren’t necessarily bad, and sometimes it’s a sign that I just need to get out of the house and do something to clear my head, like take a walk in the woods with our two German Shepherds.  But again, I just wasn’t motivated enough, and was telling my daughter about my lack of enthusiasm.

Laughing, she told me, “Look at this video, this little girl has enough motivation for all of us!”  Then she shared the following video, and I was thoroughly captivated!

Whenever I need a push to start my day and get going, I’m definitely going to take a lesson from this wonderful little girl–how about you?


I'm Janelle, a wife, a mother, and a grandmother of 5 angels (most of the time)! I started as a way to show how anyone can become financially independent and retire early. As I build out this site, I hope you'll comment and share your experiences as well. Good luck in all your endeavors, and may your success start now!
