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 Afternoon or Good Evening wherever you are! Here’s what happened on the website while most of you were away. On Friday, I added a new gallery to the Flashback Friday page. Yesterday, I added a new gallery to the Eye Candy section. I’m in contact with 2 previous artists that I collaborated in the past to set up new galleries next month. I’m working to set up the studio and funds to have them in place for July. I’m also working on adding new streams of income to ensure cash will be available Hopefully, I can post a new car show, motorcycle show, etc. It’s been 5 months since I attended any event. While it sucks that many events I planned for are gone, I made some moves to stay above the fray. It also made me refocus on other things. I also generate income from platforms like Mercari, eBay, Bonanza, and more. I also created new designs for the Divas-N-Rides store and the updated Shopify store! Now, I got to work on the skills I promise myself to learn today. Catch you again next time!

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 Tuesday! Here’s the latest edition of the Daily Drive. If you missed last week’s post, I’m reposting the links to the books, resources available to those who are truly serious about combating racism, police brutality, and human rights abuse! Weeks earlier, I listened to an episode of the Growth Show about a Chicago based bookstore surviving and thriving due this global health crisis! This episode also had a list to campaign to help get books to school children across the city. I’m in the process of adding new galleries in the Eye Candy section and Flashback Fridays! If you ever visited the event calendar page, several events have been either removed or rescheduled as my region is still stuck in between Phase 1 and Phase 2 reopening. I’m also making some updates to the Divas-N-Rides store and my other online business that’s open. They will reach a point where they are on the same level with the other revenue sources we use everyday

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!

Good Afternoon! Hopefully, most of you are getting the new year off on a good note. I can’t wait for this weekend to come. The Progressive International Motorcycle Show is coming to town. I plan to attend this weekend. I’m glad this year’s event won’t conflict with another motorcycle event. I’ll see plenty of new motorcycles, motorcycle parts, and accessories on display and sale. Any coverage from this event will be posted on this website. I also plan to add more funds to ensure that I can attend this event and other events this month. You’ll be amazed by what we’ll see this weekend.
