Persona Paper Absolutely Pays in Timely Fashion
There seems to have been more concerns or questions waged recently about earning coins and whether or not people get paid. I read recently that there were people who "have never known anyone who has been paid here."
If that is the case, then might I suggest that those who are concerned go back through my archives and read from July to current in the Persona Paper category. I break down all goals, frustrations and celebrations. It might assuage any concerns.
The First Time Around
I set my goal to reach the 20-dollar mark (13334 coins) by my 60th birthday of August 10th. When it was apparent that I would do that, I decided to reach for the 15K coin goal by my birthday. No matter the results, I would cash out on my day. It was a symbolic gesture for me and no one else, though I had many supporters.
I became eligible to redeem the first time on July 25th. I broke that day down in increments to share with others how many coins were reached in random hours as I got close to my goal. Many wonder what earnings are like and what time of day is better for them to earn. ( Click here for that article.)
I cashed out on my August 10th birthday and was paid on August 15th. More can be learned at Persona Paper Payment Practically and Perfectly Painless and Prompt .
Next Goals Were Set
If you care to continue reading through more articles showing how ANYONE can set goals and reach them in a shorter amount of time here at Persona Paper or anywhere, then you can do so at your leisure. ( This link may make that easier for those who care to see a list of all 800+ articles.)
We all have busy lives with many obligations. Therefore, we all must decide what is important to us, and then work toward what we want to do, taking control and responsibility on how we choose to manage it. Those decisions must come from within. It is not a competition.
My initial goal was to reach my second payout by December 20th and to cash out at whatever coins were in my bank on December 31st. (See Setting My Goal for the Next $20 .)
It became clear that goals would be met sooner than later, but it did not just land in the backyard. It took consistent work. At no time did I feel it was effort spent in vain, nor would I jump onto the fear bandwagon as other sites disappeared.
Goals are simply goals. They are my goals, no one else's. And as MegL said in her recent article, Cashed Out, "...you win some, you lose some." (Is it any wonder than she is one of my favorite people?)
My Second Redemption
On November 7th, I reached the $20 payout mark, 15 weeks after meeting my first $20 payout goal. I set my stretch goal of 15K coins before Thanksgiving.
At approximately 1:00 a.m. PST on November 24th, two full days and several more hours before the anticipation of sitting down to consume the Thanksgiving turkey, I reached the 15K level, and clicked to submit for payment. It took 15 weeks and 3 1/2 days to reach from one 15K to the next.
At 6:40 a.m PST, less than six hours later , I received notification that $20 had been paid to my PayPal account.
Nowhere that I have written has anyone given me the freedom and the service that I receive here at Persona Paper. There have certainly been some glitches, but I have not noticed them recently. I appreciate the opportunity to write with few rules, and get paid within a week when I redeem without having to track people down, as has been the case both times I have submitted for payment.
Keep Moving Forward
Perhaps some will now let go of the worries that can so insidiously take over one's thoughts.
Worry is when we allow fear to tell us lies. Allowing others to be our pied pipers of fear, so we can follow them through the muck and mire does no one any good.
Yes, things may change, and we may have to adapt to those changes. That is what LIFE gives us. But as long as we have life, we get to choose our paths. We MUST look and move forward and get rid of the "what ifs" that burrow into our brains.
The Next Payout
Looking forward into 2016, my next step is to keep writing. I do not have any definitive goals set here for Persona Paper. I have begun mapping out what will be in store for the new year in other ways. How it will all mesh together is not yet decided.
What I do know is this: I choose not to dwell on "what was," "what could have been," or "if only." I hope others will join me in the remainder of this year and into our next with "What can I do today to make a difference in (my life, my community, others' lives)?"
As far as my third or next payout...I am loosely setting a goal for Easter, by the end of March.
It is as good a goal as any other.
