My #1 Money Making Tip

A lot of people get stuck on the making-money part of being girl boss. “But, how do you REALLY make a living Mayi?”, they ask.

It’s a good question.

Everything eventually comes back to money, doesn’t it? Well, it’s gotta come from somewhere, right? I wish leprechauns will just sneak into our homes at night while we’re sleeping with large bags of cash. But until then, we gotta bring peanut butter and jelly sandwiches to the table legally.

You’ve followed your calling, now what?

The first step to making money is to stop Googling things like, “how to make money.” Not because you shouldn’t want to make money, but because the stuff you’re going to find by doing that is highly likely going to help you lose money.

You wanna know what my #1 money making tip? Hit play!

Focus on surviving.

Get rich slowly, by your own means.

That’s how you build a profitable empire. That’s how you earn the badge of THE BOSS.

Now, I would love to hear your #1 money making tip. Share it in the comments!


I Totally Sketched Custom Portraits for Kate Spade NY (Pinch Me!)

Did I tell you about that time I sketched pretty custom portraits LIVE for the reopening of Kate Spade NY here in Panama? It was one of the scariest + funnest things I’ve ever done.

Meet all these gorgeous humans I hand-drew with my 10 little fingers. Afterwards, I totally took a 3 day nap, or something like that. It was A-MA-ZING thou. And so worth the social anxiety.

I made a mini movie in case you couldn’t be there.
