I’m out here making sure that getting money is something that is normal to me. People don’t understand that getting money is a skill. I’m not hustling hard enough. AM I NOT FOCUSED? I must not because making money is not a skill of mine. I like money, damn near love it. So let’s get this money.
Basically I’m a novice who believe that I can make it in the tech industry. The thing is my skill level is extremely low. Then I’m competing against child prodigies, people who went to college for computers and people who has been doing this for years. Fuck them. I got to go into tunnel vision mode. It’s time to adjust my focus as well as improving my skills and experience. It’s time to put in the work and stop half-assing.
NEGUS Computers & Robotics LLC has me at a lost of direction. I have no clue how to run a business. Let me tell you I read all the books on business I could read and look at me not knowing a damn thing. Also, I don’t know what is it my company does. Really the name has nothing to do with the original idea of NEGUS. Originally, NEGUS is suppose to be an information technology and cybersecurity company. Then my imagination ran wild and I talked myself into putting computers and robotics in the name with high expectations of manufacturing and producing high-quality hardware and software for computers and robotics. Which means now I got to teach myself how to make software and hardware. This is the price I have to pay if I want to be a free and independent black man. I’ll teach myself all the computers and robotics I can learn but I got to get this business started and running as soon as possible. So I got to learn computers and robotics as I’m learning about business. I’m prepared to be a student of the game and master my craft.
Up watching some Lebron James motivation videos. Arguably one of the greatest athlete alive at the moment. The mentally of Lebron James is highly respected in my book. This is a man who strive for greatness every damn day. Lebron James wants to be the greatest basketball player in the world, or he is working on being the greatest basketball player he can be. This man is a top tier person. Watching these videos because I’m elevating my focus and mindset. I can’t do what Lebron James does on the basketball court but I can do it with the computers.
This is where I go into my goals and aspirations. I got to give my all every single day like Lebron James. The man a general and a gentleman on and off the court. You can alway catch The King leading and taking charge. He is alway showing why he is the most valuable player. I aim to be the same way with computers. Like Lebron I want to show that fears and limits are only an illusion. That you can put any obstacle, challenges, or wall in front of me and I’ll get through. My championships would be me get awards for my contributions to computer science and selling computer software and hardware for millions of dollars, if not billions. I know is that it all starts in the mind. I’m here develop my King Mentallly like Lebron James and strive for greatness. Lebron said it best, “You can’t be afraid to fail it’s the only way you succeed.”
I started a computer and robotics company. The name of the business is Negus Computers & Robotics, LLC. It has always been a dream of mine to start a tech company and help make the world better. Well here it goes with Negus Computers & Robotics. I’m starting it because I want to be more than just a World-Class Mack or a mystery novel writer. Plus I got a big thing for technology and science.
What the business does is still a unknown but I’m more certain that we fall into the cybersecurity realm. The business plan for the company is to create cool products and make money. I’m a simple guy. Right now it is just me starting off Negus, yet I am sure that more people will join the company as I continue to expand. I have faith that this company will make a lot of money but I don’t know how big of an impact this company will have on the world. Yes I want to impact the world in a major way. I don’t care if this got to be a one-man business up until the end. Negus will make an impact on the world.
Like Miyamoto Musashi said, “Everything is within.” This is me believing in the power of me to make something out of this company. I have a desire to be a great cyberprenuer and my faith in myself to make that happen is what will keep me pushing forward. I’m going to figure it out. People better not doubt me but they better watch me. I’m here to show them a black man from the hood can create a tech company too.
I’m choosing the life of a cyberpreneur. A cyberpreneur is a digital entrepreneur. All it means is that I start, build, and operate my business majority of the time in the digital world. That is the best thing for a playa like me.
Plus the way the world was hit by the unexpected virus made me realize that the best thing for me is to go digital with it. I got a business idea that can take me to the stars and moon if I plan and execute. I got to put my head down and work, both hard and smart. I’m making this cyberpreneur thing work for me.
I’ve came to a conclusion that I’m too focused on money. My love for money has blinded me. You can end up doing what you hate just to get what you love. That is why it is important to be cautious on what you love. Money and I will always be friends because I like money a lot but I can’t love money any more.
Also, I feel I have been mashing hustle and money into one thing. Money is one of the result of hustle. It is a common thing among great hustlers that they don’t do it for the money. Kobe Bryant had a bit in his book, The Mamba Mentality, that said he was able to be one of the best Basketball players because he wasn’t doing it for a check like his colleagues. It is a big difference of people at my job who work to be the best employee, and people like me who their to collect a weekly check. I got to put my money needs and wants to the side so I can focus on being the best in my field. Which means no to being second, third, top 5 or top 10. I want to be number one.
On the other hand, if I am good at something pay me for it. I put value on myself and the work that I do. That is why I aiming to get better, so I can get better pay.
This question has been pondering my mind lately. The question I’ve been asking myself is how do I increase my value? Honestly, it would be better if my value goes up. At my status as a multi-thousandaire, I got my studio, food in the fridge, and can afford somethings. But I want my value to go up. So I’m going to hustle more for myself.
So to increase the value for myself I decided to flip the Literary Hustle into my side hustle. I haven’t made a dollar writing yet, and I been doing this since 2017. It can’t be my main hustle because it hasn’t generated an income. So as it becomes my side hustle I’ll use whatever free time to improve on the writing craft.
My new main hustle will be cybersecurity. Don’t know if I’ll speak about it anymore after this. Choosing this hustle will give me the opportunity to learn a skill or skills. My plan is to have an operational cybersecurity firm by the 14th of April of 2025. I’m choosing this route because this industry is growing at a large rate because of the increase in cybercrime and the need for people to protect their assets online. Let’s not forget it is where the money is at. Plus I do believe my first millions are going to come from the cyber world. Now it’s finding what I do the best compared to everybody else in this industry. Right now the answer is nothing because I’m a cool level 2 noob in this industry.
Last but not least the podcast is on the way. The big homie, Scrooge, and I are going to make noise in the late-night podcast realm. We just working on a name to use. I think we should call our podcast the Kings of Cool Podcast. No lie, we are going to be the number 1 voice of urban podcast media. We already got a few episodes recorded.
Nipsey Hussle once said, “we don’t want to wait for someone to hire us and give us a check. We want to create our own opportunities.” That quote sums up the reason why I hustle. Rest in peace Nipsey Hussle the great.
They say in order to solve a problem you have to acknowledge the problem. So here I am, and I am broke. Not Money Making Mitch broke but can these three eggs in my fridge last me until next paycheck broke. I’m so broke I asked the city bus driver for a ride, told him next time I got him. In a matter of months I went from just over broke to broke. Guess I was never far from a financial shortage because I’m right back.
I had the belief that I was in control of my finances. My bank account statements shoot down that belief like an unarmed black man. The reckless spending on food, liquor, and ladies has caught up with me and my money. Do you blame a young dude for trying to live a good life filled with pleasure? No, but I do blame myself for not having enough discipline to put the pleasure to the side for a moment or two. Young Sweet Jones is looking down at me shaking his head right now. I could hear his voice saying, “Stop all that tricking. Purse first, ass last.” Meaning business over pleasure.
Now I got to work on a solution to this personal crisis and making sure that I do not go back to broke once I’ve solved it because being broke sucks. My solution is a hustle or side hustle. A hustle where I can use my skills and talents to generate an extra source of income. Either a hustle I find or one I create. Something that does not seem like work because I work already and I don’t like that place. Plus getting a hustle would be a great opportunity to learn how to hustle because Lord knows I do not know how to hustle properly.
