Michael Jackson @ Final Rehearsal
First and foremost, I have to once again reach out to the family and friends of the “King of Pop” with condolences. Your Michael will Truly be missed!
To Michael I say, Mission Accomplished!!!
For those that cry out, Michael passed away too soon, I remind you of a quote from my late Dad; “Man Plans, God Dis-plans.” In other words we can make all the plans in the world but the Universe is the ultimate planner.
With this in mind, we must seize every day, every moment and live our lives to the fullest! Put aside the excuses, BUT’s and NO’s and just GO FOR IT. Ask yourself, if you were to die today, would you have truly lived to your fullest potential? Would the world be able to say Mission Accomplished? Or would you be on your death bed saying ” I Wish I had?”
Finally, regardless of what we thought/think of Joe & Katherine Jackson – they have and continue to be the ultimate ENTREPRENEURIAL PARENTS –
Just some thoughts as we prepare to celebrate the life and times of Michael Jackson – July 7th, 2009 –
RIP – MJ. The world will forever be indebted to you – even THE HATERS!!!!!
Onward & Upward Always,
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.
Living The Dream - Martin Luther King, Jr
On this most historic day, we look back almost 40 years – when Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr had a DREAM.
The difference between having a dream and achieving it is a matter of a few million steps.. The important thing is that EVERYDAY we must commit to ONE more step – even if it appears small.
Tomorrow, The United States of America will inaugurate its 44th President, Barack Obama. The dynamics and mechanisms at work with the universe to have these two incidents coincide within a day of one another is something short of destined.
With this in mind, I am reminded of the phrase “Walk Into Your Season.” Yes folks, I am crystal clear that we all have our season and destiny – and it is imperative that we tune into those elements that are “conspiring” to place us in our own historical place.
So, NEVER, EVER Stop working and living your DREAM.
See you at the Top of The Mountain –
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 –
The other day, I received a “wonderful” email from someone that needed to respond to my last post -regarding Superwoman. In the email, the author found it necessary to remind me of grammatical errors, misspellings and various other violations she/he found in my writing. With all my inadequacies the writer declared, that I could NOT possibly “BE SUPERWOMAN.”
I had to remind myself that declaring myself SUPERWOMAN was not point of the post. The point was to offer support to my fellow “sister friends.” At that moment, I glanced over at another email (I keep this one posted in my home office) that a FRIEND sent to me some time ago:
A hater is someone that is jealous and envious and spends all their time trying to make you look small so that they can look tall.
When you make your mark, you will always attract some haters…That’s why you have to be careful who you share your blessings and your dreams with because some folk can’t handle seeing you blessed….
If the grass looks greener on the other side of the fence, you can rest assured that the water bill is higher there too!
So, like the final words of my “posted” email reminded, You can handle haters by:
1. Knowing who you are and who your TRUE friends are
2. Having a purpose
3. Remembering that what you have is by divine prerogative and not human manipulation
Enjoy, take care, and remember that when living dreams, there are always going to be – HATERZ EVERYWHERE YOU GO –
Stay strong and on task!!!!
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!!!!

Now, when we think of Entrepreneurial parents with “Swagga” – you have got to think of Sean P.Diddy Combs. Now, Mr. Combs has built an musical empire, clothing line, fragrance line, and more – he has dabbled in politics with “Rock the Vote” and was very vocal in the recent 2008 Presidential Elections.
While providing for his offspring an Entrepreneur – he has constantly pushed the button, as he raises his family, business and dreams under one roof. Whatever, you think of him as an individual, he is certainly an ENTREPRENEURIAL PARENT….
In his latest move, P. Diddy says that “It Is Time For A Black James Bond” and he needs to be it! So, Enjoy – P.Diddy’s James Bond Audition Tape!
