I’m a recent college graduate with a passion for creativity and helping others. I graduated college with an English degree and I desire to use the skills I have acquired in order to accomplish a variety of projects.
So I’m writing this at probably one of the lowest points of my life. Financially, personally, and even spiritually, I’ve been dealing with failures and drawbacks more times than I can count. I allowed my greed for money and independence to overtake me. To the point where I wasn’t thinking clearly and was unsatisfied with my current situation. I wanted more.
This leads to the purpose behind this post. In November, I received an email from a supposedly legit company. They will provide a large monthly salary in exchange for menial tasks. I didn’t think too much of it and even considered it a convenient blessing. So I work for about a month and now it comes time to collect payment. The day arrives and my bank account is still the same. I email the person in charge and she tells me that the issue is being worked on. A week goes by and I hear nothing. Long story short, I was a victim of an online scam and now I’m back to square one.
This experience was the epiphany that was right in front of me the whole time. Nothing about this company seemed normal, yet I wrote it off as it being an online company. The red flags were pretty obvious, but I was fixated on the hypothetical green. Part of me is glad that I went through this, for I realized that this is the exact opposite of what I wanted my personal business to be. I don’t want the basis of my brand simply be about making easy money. Rather than demand money, I want to work hard in a way where I deserve money.
I no longer want to simply get by paycheck to paycheck. I want to take risks. I need to get out of my comfort zone. Maybe I’ll have to look for another minimum wage job. Maybe I’ll have to cut my losses and move back to my parent’s house. Even now, I’m subtly begging you for money to support my brand. I admit my pride will always be an obstacle, thus the meaning behind the name Brother Humbled. It’s time to share my creativity in hopes of serving people.
Below I have provided a link to my website. If you’re able to help, then I would deeply appreciate every visit and every cent donated to me. If not, then I hope you understand that I am just another college graduate not trying to survive, but thrive in my capabilities.
Thank you for your time and may 2017 be a prosperous year for all of us.
