Thoughts On Launching Sabaink.com!

Well, it has been an interesting 15 year journey! The past 2 years have brought challenges, growth, transformation and most importantly a deep understanding of who I am as a Woman!

Learning how to give myself permission to be me and comfortable in my own skin – that is the greatest gift the Universe has given me.

Understanding that in order to grow, one must embrace all that life has to offer – the good, the bad and the ugly. For only in those moments can we say that we are fully alive and a real part of the process.

As I begin to re-create my life as Woman, Co-parent, Supporter & Supported of Family, Friends and Associates, I see ME in a totally different light. For the first time in my life I truly understand and embrace ALL that it means to be Saba, Ink!

I thank everyone for their love, patience and continued support – and look forward to many more years of us falling in Love with one another.

Peace & Prayers,

The Current Recession As Affirmative Action

For some time now, the nation has been fighting over the need for “Affirmative Action.” As the economy continues to collapse or re-design itself on a global scale, could this process quite possibly be “leveling of playing field?”

I mean for the first time in decades – seems we are able to use technology to democratize institutionalized systems and networks. In this era, a musician, writer, broadcaster or aspiring entrepreneur can use the free tools available online to find,build or fill a niches. Just think that for the first time in ages, individuals can reach just about anyone DIRECTLY through social networks. We are meeting individuals we might not have met before via the internet and this is allowing us to do business locally, nationally and globally.

So, as we look at the traditional systems adjust, I really do feel that this is the best time for growth and expansion – because regardless of one’s class, gender, race, religion, nationality, etc – if you are innovative you can find success. In this climate, the notion of “leveling the playing field” seems to happening across segments daily!

So as tempting as it might be to fall into the negativity of the uncertain, I say AFFIRM you – and take ACTION to gain control of your own destiny and future.

This is a wonderful time to be Entrepreneurial and brand new.

FBC Senior Citizen Hip Hop Choir!

I know it has been a little while since I’ve posted but so much has been going on like:
The new economy, global positioning, parent-hood and just trying to define what it means to be an entrepreneurial parent.
However, when I saw this video today of this group of seniors living their entrepreneurial dream and getting their “groove on” I could not help but be inspired!

Enjoy – and remember you’re never too old to make it happen! GO GET ‘EM Y’ALL —

2009: “Careful What You Ask – For Me, It’s No More Drama!”

As we approach a new year with great hopes and anticipation for CHANGE, I would like to remind everyone to be:

“Careful What You Ask…The Universe Will Deliver!”

The above quote has become one of my favorite sayings of all time. In my journey to Entrepreneurship, “The Law of Attraction” is something I have had to take really seriously. This includes the friends we keep, the family members that surround us and most importantly what we visualize. Sometimes we look @ our own lives and cannot accept the place we find ourselves. The road is hard and we certainly will lose some “friends” along the way but that is part of the journey. Until we take responsibility for our own condition- we cannot make the necessary moves to rescue ourselves and get to the places we want to go. Keep in mind, that some CHANGE might involve getting rid of folks that are not helping you to attract success – spiritually, mentally, emotionally and/or financially.

So, get ready to ring in the new year by COMMITTING TO and FOLLOWING UP on your plans for Real success.

Now, Visualize With Me For:
A Prosperous New Year, In 2009 & Beyond!


And In The Words Of My Girl Mary J……NO MORE DRAMA, PLEASE

NEWS FLASH: Superwoman Ain’t Comin’ (Today)

This week-end was a long one for me.

I decided to take some time to focus on myself because as we all know – the demands of life can be overwhelming.

As, I reviewed plans – and looked into the New Year – the one thing I resolved was that my new phrase will be “SUPERWOMAN ain’t coming!” As women, it is sometimes difficult to take of our capes – and -take a break from rescuing the world.

I say, we most certainly have the ability to Save The World but not all at the same time. We have to keep in mind that our overextended schedules can be like Kryponite for the soul – and if we do not take some time to energize – we can burn out.

So, I say it is okay to take care of home, business, man and kids – but every so often (without guilt), find the time for yourself – put up a sign on the door, and let the world know:

SUPER WOMAN AIN’T COMIN – at least not today!!!!

Kelly Ripa & The Electrolux Commercial

Whenever that commercial for Electrolux comes on, I can’t help but laugh out loud – Not because it is funny (in that sense) but because, I can totally relate. Like most working/Entrepreneurial parents juggling a gazillion projects at one time (and well) that ad serves as a testimony. It illustrates and reminds all that to run a family and balance work life takes nothing short of great management and organizational skills. For Ripa who is a Co-host on Regis and Kelly, A Mother, Wife, Pitch Woman, Actress and more, 24 hours like most of us can be a really short day –

So for anyone that underestimates the RESUME of a Working Mom or Dad, I’d say check out this Electrolux Ad – and be clear that this is not just an ad – It is a DAILY reality!

So as we all fight for CHANGE, let’s make sure to we support policies that will support the already overworked parents of the world…….

Enjoy –
