Cover Photo: MONEY PORNOGRAPHY by Budding Dirt


MONEY PORNOGRAPHY; Money makes me anxious. I don't ever want to go broke again. The first time I went broke I lost all my friends, a house, and self-respect. The second time, I lost my friends, my house, and my family. I've had plenty of mini-broke. I lost a lot of things during those times.

"It's not failing that defines you, it's how you define the failure."

I have undergone money pornography. Been broke but still thrive;Some people who I thought were close friends no longer spoke to me because of opinions I expressed of whom i should be. I have to catch myself so i don't argue with them in my head.

After people left me ;I have come up with 3,650 business ideas, money is just a side effect of being an idea machine. And I've seen it working. The more i'm creating the more i'm saving.

Since i birthed the idea of making money but looking broke; I've created more deals, investments, opportunities for my life and others etc.

A lot of friends laughed at me and even spoke ill of how i will die broke but to me i was balancing dangerously high wire between growing youth and maturity.

In 2016 me and Mark started a company we were both in danger of losing everything if the idea didn't work. We were scared. We started at least somewhere and in some months it didn't worked. Most of them were my ideas but Mark never blamed me for losing a lot of profit that cost us a ton of money.

Every day we kept trying and eventually things worked. I got a deal of good cash and when it arrived we divided the cash mark went and i remained to replenish the label by which it worked. It was the birth of "Off The Records".
