It’s Been Awhile

It’s been awhile since I last blog. I feel that I need to share more of my lifestyle and the multiple business that I run. Many things have changed since I last blogged, which was way back in March.

I want to officially announce that I am done with nursing. The reason is, I want to focus more on the things in my life that I am truly passionate about. (And part of my blog will also emphasize on following your passion and what you love to do.) So, you’re probably guessing what sort of business am I running.

One of the business that I am most proud of that my siblings and I created from bottom up is Real Estate. Back in 2011, my siblings and I became real estate investors.  My part in this business is to deal with tenants, call-out maintenance to the property, and scout for new listings in the market.

Another business that I run is my sister’s art business, Venlaa. Venla is clay artist, illustrator, and designer. In this business, I deal with marketing, lookout and book her for events, and communicate with partners and clients.

Last but not least, my own business. This year, August, I have officially launched my own videography business. Many have asked me why and how did I start out in videography. It was back in 2015 when I went on road trip with my siblings to Montana. I was documenting our trip on the way there, where we went, and our trip back home. I got back home and I started editing. Got done editing and posted it onto Facebook and Youtube. Many people loved it and I loved it. Ever since then, I started filming my family and I any time we took a trip anywhere. Many people watched my video and it started blooming. They’ve asked me to film their weddings, birthdays, or special ceremonies and there I was contemplating. Can I wake up everyday and just grab my camera and film? Hell yes! But I have to say, this isn’t possible without the help of my sister, she is a talented and wonderful assistant who shares the same vision as I do, filming and editing wise. She does a wonderful job helping out when I’m stuck on a video and I don’t have a creative vision for the film.

I want to get back into sharing my life and views through blogging. My life isn’t the best, but I make the most out of it. All these business that my siblings and I run was all built from the bottom up. I want to inspire anyone out there to follow their dreams because it is possible if you put your mind to it and say to yourself “I can do it.”

New Hobby: Paddleboarding

I enjoy my days at the lake. It’s a great time to relax, enjoy myself, and chill with my family. This summer I finally got the chance to try out something I had always wanted to do.

Paddleboarding.

I was out on Lake Alice at William O’ Brien State Park, about 15 minutes north from Stillwater, MN.

The impression that was running through my head before I ever tried paddleboarding was, “is this board stable?”and “will it hold me?”

I was nervous.

You know that feeling, when you want to try it so bad but your’re so scared at the same time. That’s me.

But, surprisingly, it’s much easier than canoeing and kayaking. When you sit in a canoe or kayak, it is wobbly and you can’t shift your weight from side to side much, you’ll flip it. Paddleboarding was much more stable. I was amazed at how stable it was. I rocked the board from side to side and it would not flip. It’s trustworthy.

What I love about a paddleboard that a canoe or kayak cannot do is being able to stand on the board. I could see everything around me and in the water. I spotted a school of Carp from a distance and as I get closer, they vanish. It’s beautiful.

It’s almost Fall, that means Winter is right around the corner. I’m going to enjoy a couple more days out at the lake paddleboarding before Winter hits!
