Follow Your Effort

I am apart of Google Partners, a program for digital advertisers and marketers,  and one of the perks is that I get to enjoy a free domain from Google Domains. So I registered last night and will use that to generate new Thai to English and English to Thai translation business for me.

If you know me, you know that I work full time in sales and customer service for Time Warner Cable. So for 40 hours a week I spend a lot of time helping cable, internet, and digital phone customers with their account and services. You also know that I have a BA in Political Science and am set to graduate from a MS program in Criminal Justice. And finally you know that I have had a passive interest at online marketing, social media, and online blogging for many years now. 

At this point you're probably wondering why I wear so many hats and why I am taking on another business venture. The answer's simple really, it's because I'd rather be doing these things and learning than wasting time playing games and/or watching videos online. Not that there's anything wrong with that lifestyle.

I want to blog everyday as much as possible and write about the topics I enjoy writing about, but I know that having too many interests will leave me with a lot of sites and little time to work on each of them. Ideally, what I should do is focus on one topic and be really knowledgeable about it. While I do enjoy writing and blogging about my personal life, sports and technology, it's not what I think should be doing if I want to make money online long term. 

I think in order to have a passion for something you got to be really good at what you're doing. I think I once heard my business role model, Mark Cuban, the billionaire owner of the Dallas Mavericks, say something along the lines of "don't follow your passion, follow your effort." 

So where is my effort? I have worked at Time Warner Cable for close to four years, spending 40 hours a week at that job dealing with cable, internet, and phone. I have been a customer service representative for close to ten years. I've dabbled in online marketing, social media, and blogging and learned the ins and outs of it for close to 10 years. But I've been Thai my whole life, and spoken Thai ever since I could speak. 

For me, providing high quality Thai translation work at is one of the best business ideas for me. So that's what I will be focusing on going forward.

University of Cincinnati Master of Science Degree Diploma

It's official! Today, I received my diploma from the University of Cincinnati. I can't express how happy and proud I am of my Master of Science degree. I told my mom, my aunt, my dad and basically everyone on my social media. I even tweeted my diploma photo to Santa Ono, the President of the University of Cincinnati, and even got a congratulatory reply from him and the official UC Twitter account. So it's been an awesome Saturday.

Here is a pic of my University of Cincinnati diploma.

Holiday Tradition

The holidays are just around the corner. It's the best time of the year for sure. But the holidays can go by really quickly. I mean, it's going to be Halloween on Monday already! Pretty soon Thanksgiving will be here and we'll all be eating Turkey with our families. Then just like that we'll be opening up presents on Christmas and ringing in 2017 on New Year's.

Some families have holiday traditions. I want to start a holiday tradition where we help out the less fortunate. Everyday is a struggle for each one of us but at least we have food on our tables and a roof over our heads. There are just way too many people on the streets hungry and freezing. We shouldn't let this go on. Not on our watch.

With the power of the internet we can achieve so much in so little time. We can use this power to help others. We don't even have to spend our own money. Did you know that there are free donation sites out there right now that you can visit everyday and donate for fr…
