The Weekend Drive: 06/07/2020

It’s been a while since I wrote here. I have been focused on other things in the area! My local region just started phase 1 of reopening last week. Maryland International Raceway is back to racing. However, they haven’t allowed fans back just yet. So, we have to wait until the end of June/early July to reach a point where public gatherings can go safely. Now, this is a game of making up for the lost time. Speaking of lost time, I saw more traction with one of my main revenue sources this past week. I’m also making updates to Divas-N-Rides based merchandise on this online store. This week, I got a few galleries that will be added to this website as the road to recovery begins!

Good Afternoon! I made some changes to the calendar yesterday! From what I learned, the earliest you’ll see new event galleries on this website will be the end of May. This month, Nascar will be back in action next weekend. F1, Indycar, and NHRA won’t be back until later in the summer months. So, we’re slowly moving from iracing to real racing. It’s clear this will be the few live sports we’ll have available to watch. In addition, I’m working on re-establishing some of the feature models photoshoots I was working on before the global health crisis wreaked havoc on everyone and everything. I might actually take a look at doing virtual photoshoots. Getting new content posted won’t be an issue despite the current situation everyone is in right now! Some of the photoshoots will include items from either the original Divas-N-Rides Store or the newly launched Home Team Legends online store. If you haven’t visited them yet, now would be a good time as the weather begins to slowly move upwards depending on where you are.

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!

Happy Saturday! Let’s go over what happened this week! Last week, I had an active week with one of my revenue sources. This week, a different revenue source has seen more action than expected! With most events being canceled or pushed back to later dates, I’ve taken advantage of the free time to clean out the house, learn new skills, create new revenue streams, engaged in new events, and reorganize parts of my life in the process! As I made updates to the calendar, there may be some signs of hope on the way. There’s a possibility that many events I posted will happen as scheduled or on a new makeup date. It’s been a long wait. It’s clear the other side of this could be here sooner than expected. Let’s be prepared when the new set of normal beings!

Happy Saturday! Since there are no automotive or motorcycle events until it’s safe for the public to attend events safely, I’ve been working on some other items in the house this week. I’m working to collect and save funds for a new car to replace the one damaged weeks ago. To achieve this plan, I needed to get creative with new ideas I made. I added new designs and merchandise for my latest revenue source. I was able to generate some successful sales with my other revenue streams. I’m also working to set-up my television for the latest edition of Kindle Fire TV! Sure, there are shows worth catching upon. However, I have other things that need to be taken care of first. Then, I can relax and watch.

I just finished one of the most successful sales weekends from one of my revenue streams. I just had to re-examine how items are sold and how to increase sales without having to lose future revenues in the process. It’s been a while since I did a photoshoot for this website. It looks like late June or July could be the soonest I will be back in this current environment. I’m working on upgrading my account to ensure that photos from past events can be uploaded soon. I made some changes to my money so I can afford to make the necessary upgrades to improve this website. I also worked to ensure I have a steady stream of income when this global health crisis comes to an end. With the free time available, here’s a video from an event this website covered last year!

Good Afternoon or Good Evening, whenever you’re reading this. The 1st car show gallery of 2020 is now live on the website. This was so big I needed another photo gallery to cover the whole event. With that being said, I was working on the photo gallery when I heard that Kobe Bryant passed away. I think it was real until more news surfaced to confirm the worse. What makes this story heartbreaking was he, his daughter and members of basketball teams and their families were on the helicopter heading to basketball game. The one thing that made respect Kobe was his winning mindset. He operated with a win at all cost attitude. I also learned he was more interested in the process than the results. I also learned watched game films from a radio ad a few years ago. This hunger to do better was what made him a legend. He also took that with him in the post-basketball career. Too bad, the life after basketball part was gone too soon!

Good Afternoon! I’m in the process of doing a fall clean-up with both Thanksgiving and Christmas fast approaching. I also have a few feature model galleries that need to be completed for the month of November. Recently, I have been successful with one of the revenue streams in the past 4 days. Even though I added a new inventory for sale, I’m having issues with getting steady cash flow for the store. At least, I have several backup revenue streams in place to ensure this website will never run short of funding. Once I get those issues resolved, I’ll have more free time to take of the things I need to do.

Good Afternoon! I’m putting the finishing touches to another feature model photoshoot this week. I successfully executed a feature model photoshoot last week. Now, I need to get the post-production work out of the way so it can be seen and shared. I just made some updates to the website because of various changes dating back to the last Monday of October when I working on items outside the website. I just saw some major uptick in one of my revenue streams in the past few days. I’m seeing more successful sales in the store. I also added another revenue stream to help support the website. If you haven’t been to the Pateron page, now would be a great time to do so! I’m checking to see if there are any new events coming up before the big events happening next week! If it comes, you’ll hear it and see it here as it happens!

Good Morning! I’ve been tied up with iPhone repairs because I have wi-fi connectivity issues. I’ve been using workarounds to get the word out about another revenue stream to help support the other revenue streams that were already established! I also have to use workarounds to get the Youtube Channel updated. I’m also working to add new galleries to the feature model section. I just finished another new feature model page. I also have a few more this month to execute. I just updated our parent’s site IG page, and it has resulted in more traction on the viewer stats.
