I want to be an influencer. Here is what I would like to influence:

  1. People to spay and neuter their pets (to prevent pet overpopulation which results in the need for kill shelters)
  2. People to be kind to one another. Without explanation. Or deliberate intent. Just all the time. And that includes when we’re behind the wheel of a car.
  3. Have a desk / day job! It’s actually pretty nice being financially independent, pay rent and one day a mortgage, having health insurance..and saving for retirement. The influencer trend is cute..I question how many are independently financially stable. Do it on the side – corporate America needs you. And it’s kinda interesting to be in.
  4. Donate! There is a modern day philosopher, and I wish I remembered his name, who says you don’t have to dedicate your life to philanthropy to do good. You can work a day job (see #3 above) and by doing so have the money to donate to those dedicating their lives to doing good. We’re in this together.
