Happy Tuesday! Welcome to the Daily Drive presented by Tree3 and Auto Parts Toys! I just finished a photoshoot this weekend. I’m working on the photos and future photoshoots in the next month. Here’s a preview of what I will be posting this week. I also have made updates on the events calendar. There’s one event I plan to attend until noted otherwise. I also have made some updates to the original Divas-N-Rides Store. The new designs haven’t been posted elsewhere. Despite posting some on my eBay store, I’m planning to show off those new looks in the next few weeks.

Happy Tuesday! The Daily Drive has a new sponsor. That sponsor is Tree 3. They along with Auto Parts Toys will sponsor this part of the website starting today and going forward. Normally, I would be planning to head to Maryland International Raceway this weekend. However, the Covid-19 crisis has changed those plans. 1st, I have other commitments to fulfill this upcoming weekend and beyond. 2nd, The only event at MIR that looks favorable to attend is the Street Car Takeover in August. I also found a set of wheels soon so I won’t be spending too much on rideshare services. On the flip side, WMATA has it’s own After-Hours Commuter Service Program available. I’m looking into this to save myself from having to scramble to find the fund for a ride! Speaking of Metro, They are adding more buses, trains to the service starting in August. I’ve limited my Metro use to tasks on Taskrabbit and other creative activities. I realize public transit travel is a risky activity. With that out of the way, I’ve also made some sales from my other revenue sources like eBay, Mercari, and other places. Soon, I’ll have more new content to share before the end of the month!

Happy Weekend! I’m in the process of getting a new ride. It’s clear I can’t depend on ride-sharing services to get to and from work on a regular basis without any issues disrupting the routine too much.  I plan to have a functioning ride before next weekend. In the meantime, I’m gonna need to reduce expenses and increase cash coming to avoid further financial problems. I recently added new merchandise created on Printful to my eBay Store and Bonanza Booth. 1st, I don’t have to store any inventory. 2nd, I can add new products without having to buy anything. 3rd, any afford to cover the expense without relying on one funding source is important. I felt it was time to think differently. This isn’t the time to shrink. It’s clear this isn’t a normal summer. Therefore, I’m taking different action steps to resolve those issues. Is anyone interested in a change where they want to bank today?

Good Evening! I just completed my 1st photoshoot since March when the global health crisis landed in America. Those images are now available for viewing. Also, I added a new gallery to the Eye Candy Page. I also have some of the images that are too hot for this website on this link (18+)! I just fixed an issue with my eBay store. I refunded a customer, and I’m still waiting for a customer to complete a purchase they made days ago. In other revenue source news, I made 2 successful sales from my Mercari page! Now, I need to find a new ride. I lost my original ride back in March. I’m using ride-sharing sites to get to work. Right now, I’m adding new items for sale. I’m also making changes to my other funding sources in progress. I also got new Divas-N-Rides merchandise in the pipeline coming soon!

For those wondering where I have been, Here’s the lowdown. I had to reschedule 2 photoshoots due to transportation issues and scheduling conflicts. I had an event rescheduled to September. In the downtime, I made updates to the event calendar. I also had some sales on my other revenue streams like Mercari and eBay. I also added Divas-N-Rides theme merchandise to other sales channels beside Cafe Press and Spread Shirt. I decided it was time to get our gear out there since there needs to be another to earn money from more than one setting. I’m also working to add more funds to financial sites like Aspiration Bank, Beem, Betterment, Stash, etc. In the event it’s safe to attend actual motorsport events in the region, I will have the funds to attend and cover them without any financial stress in the foreseeable future. I’ll have the Queen Helen photo gallery posted this evening!

Good Evening, Afternoon, or Morning! If you haven’t been on the website recently, I just added new galleries to the Flashback Friday section and the Eye Candy section. I’m also working to set up more galleries to add until it’s safe to attend events. Here’s the lowdown. My neck of the woods has entered the Phase 2 stage. Prince George’s County started yesterday. Montgomery County will start on the what was supposed opening date of the District. I have seen an increase in the activity on my income source. Meanwhile, there has been more action coming from my other revenue stream than the 1st revenue stream created for this website. Now, I need to get the latest revenue source more exposure to ensure all revenue sources work in step with each other. That will help in getting something for dad on Father’s Day!

Happy Memorial Day! I hope you’re having a safe and happy Memorial Day! I’m also saying thanks to the men and women of the Armed Forces and 1st responders on this National Holiday! With the current state of affairs going on right now, I had to improvise with what I got available. This hasn’t been the normal spring many of us experience. In addition, this isn’t going to a normal summer either! People had their everyday lives disrupted by a force beyond their control. Even if you didn’t lose a job, a loved one, and/or a friend, it’s clear no one is ever immune from the impact that was dealt to everyone directly or indirectly felt the effect of this health crisis. However, my neck of the woods is slowly moving closer to phase 1 of reopening by June 1. Now, I’m working on making moves on this website and more once phase 1 of reopening the region is in full effect. I’m getting all my tools together so I won’t have to race to gather everything to get my 1st post Stay At Home Orders gigs. I just finished creating another box for sale on Bentbox (18 years and older)! This box (18 years and older) I created today features one of the feature models from last year’s photo shoot. One thing I did during the Stay At Home orders was enacted was I put more effort into getting one of my other revenue streams up and running to get another form of income to make up for any lost work from this health crisis. Now, I got to upload other images from past photo shoots uploaded to show and share with others. Before I go, I need to share this video I made last year during Memorial Day Weekend!

Greetings, Everyone! This isn’t a normal Memorial Day Weekend. Sure, the Coca-Cola 600 is still happening. It’s not the usual Memorial Day. The pandemic has changed everything on this website and everything else in between. There won’t be any car shows and motorcycle events this weekend in my neck of the woods. I lost count of the number of events that I had to remove from the event calendar due to health and safety issues from this global health crisis. Some events have been pushed back to later this year since the ban on public gatherings are still in effect. The beaches are open, but they have safety rules as well! The one thing that is for certain is that the latest edition to the eye candy gallery is open. Tomorrow, the latest gallery will be added to the Flashback Fridays Gallery. I also added some new products to not just one, but 2 of our revenue sources! Finally, we got a video from an event this website covered last year. Hopefully, we make to the other side better than our old selves!

Good Afternoon! It’s been 2 months since I did a photoshoot. For most folks, that sounds like years. Even though I added new content on the Flashback Fridays section, I’m in the process of adding new content on the eye candy section because I haven’t uploaded and edited the photos. Here’s the lowdown on this worldwide health crisis. I live in the DC Capital Region, and they’re in no rush to reopen now due to the upward trend in cases. So, the earliest I can expect the region to start the reopening would be the end of May. That means I have to ensure any event calendar updates match the news updates! All I know is that Maryland International Raceway won’t be open until the end of May. Now, think about this! 3 months on events wiped out! On the other hand, Nascar will return to action this weekend. Indycar returns to action next week minus fans. This is a slow recovery period. I was hoping the curve would flatten for the whole region, not bits and pieces! However, I’m working on new designs and updates to the website and the store! I’ll have new galleries posted before the night is over.

Good Evening! April is gone, and we’re now in May now! It’s clear that my 1st trip to MIR this year will be at the end of the month. With the stay at home orders still active, Memorial Day Weekend could be the earliest they’ll see events resume. This or any activity in the region is up in the air until regional leaders collectively find a timeframe to get DC/MD/VA to ease up on restrictions once all 3 jurisdictions get the curve to flatten and then some. Okay, it’s clear quarantine fatigue is getting real. Here’s the deal! The normal we were used to won’t be returning anytime soon. Even if the curve flattens before Memorial Day and all 3 stages of reopening is complete, it won’t be the same. Sure, some events will happen or get a new date. However, we better prepare for the new reality that’s coming on the other side of this! Sure this isn’t the usual blog post I make. However, the extra time I have now will make me make the moves that I should have done weeks ago. One way to keep followers active is to use your available time to learn new skills at Skillshare! Oh, by the way, I made some updates on this revenue stream based on the activities that occurred last month. I’m also launching a series of new sales on this revenue stream this Sunday to kick start cash flow and revenue. The goal is to have enough funds available when the car show and cruise season get back up and running. Finally, Flashback Friday has been relaunched! The newest post can be found here!
