Hello, I'm Shonda Ponder. I am a self-employed courier and taxi driver. 

I am a Christian and a Conservative American and native Texan.

My priority is Jesus. My goals are to win souls, to live abundantly and to pay my bills on time, in that order.

I look forward to communicating with you all!

Recalibrating

Hello, World!


I am taking it easy today because I just woke up about an hour ago. I am going to be staying up for at least 24 hours today. I am preparing to get my hours back to "normal working hours" (6 AM-6 PM, bedtime at 9 PM).


I've been working more in the Call Center, but calls are not often, so pay is not good. But, hey, pennies. It's better than nothing, and it IS something. Maybe it will be busier this weekend.


On Monday, I will be signing up to join the Bath and Body products as a Call Center Independent Contract Agent. When accepted, I'll have to work for them at least 15 hours a week, committed. Maybe it will pay more. Thankfully, the business I am working for now doesn't have a set requirement for commitments. I do it in my own time.


The stocks I have invested in are plummeting at an alarming rate. But, the way I see it, it can't go anywhere but up, once it hits bottom. I don't see this trend lasting too long, so I'll just keep investing my daily 10%. (Buy low, so I can sell high. Just like during Covid after we got our first stimulus. I invested it and tripled my money!).


God is in control of my money.


I am investing in my 10th company this week. I like to diversify. I'll invest $100 in 31 companies, then I'll start investing twice as much into 31 more for $200 investments $5/share stocks). As long as the $100 investments ($2.50 on average/share) are doing well, at that point, I'll let them grow. Should they fall below $1/share, I'll sell them. Once my $200 investments reach a total of 31 companies, I'll start doubling my investment again ($400 investments) to $10/share stocks until I get another 31 companies. The more money I have in the stock market, the faster my money will grow.


Eventually, I want to retire and just do Day Trading. At least, until my mental facilities erode.


I am praying God takes me home before that happens.


In the meanwhile, I'm doing whatever I have to do to pay my bills. It isn't picking up cans, but it's still a penny here and a penny there, and it adds up. I stay busy, and I am not too wore out to work.


But, like today, sometimes I just need to take a break.


I ordered Door Dash from McCalister's for Lunch today. I don't feel like cooking.


My car is running good. No "Ding Ding Ding" (although, sometimes, the oil light will come on when I start the car, but it goes back off eventually with just one "ding").


I'm looking forward to next week, but I'm only planning a day at a time.


Have a blessed day!

For some reason, it was especially slow last night until early this morning. I did manage to make a $100 deposit, though. Not NEAR what I need for rent. I now have $250 of the $690 I need. I don't see
