Like A Fine Wine🍷

What if I told you that everything you’ve experienced in your life was 100% necessary for you – would you believe it? My birthday is tomorrow (I’m accepting all gifts, greetings, lunches, dinners, cakes, clothes and money without shame – let me know if you need to know my sizes!). Birthdays always breed a time…

I See You

I once had a co-worker, turned older brother, who would stalk my Instagram page. Although we were close in age, he was at a totally different stage in life. Married with two children, he always referenced what I did on the weekend as a foot loose and fancy free twenty something. Now, don’t get me…

Read Your Own Receipts

  I’m all for speaking life and encouraging others, and that includes dishing out some good ol’ fashion TOUGH love. However, it starts at home first. It’s very easy to point out what other people aren’t doing. But, here’s the reality – you can’t control anyone but yourself. Now, this is not a new phenomenon, but I have to remind myself of…

What Dream Have You Talked Yourself Out Of?

“You’re not creative” I think I was in middle school when I first told myself that. Although I taught myself how to read music at the age of 8 years old, wrote poetry in my early days, and was completely in awe whenever I attended any live concert; I told myself that I wasn’t creative. I’m not…

Weather The Storm

Almost 30 years ago, the successful (and somewhat controversial) R&B group, New Edition released a powerhouse hit from their fifth studio album. The year was 1988 and the song was entitled, “Can You Stand the Rain.” Produced by legendary Grammy Award winning production team Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis (Prince, Janet Jackson, Spice Girls, Yolanda…

Dear You

I posted a pep talk video back in April discussing how some of the very goals I wrote in my journal years ago have manifested in my life. Acts such as blogging, vlogging, and going to school were once just ideas that have now become some of my every day activities. But one thing I didn’t tell…

Target, let’s talk about the message your vendors just sent to Generation Z

Maybe it’s because I just spent the last two years of my life studying workplace behavior and motivational theories while completing my master’s degree in organizational leadership. Perhaps it’s because my nearly 40-page final thesis included dissecting the five generations in the workplace and how different cultural events impacted their worldviews sand workplace habits. It…

Even Jordan Had A Coach

Somewhere between getting rejected from his high school varsity basketball team and accumulating a net worth of $1.3 Billion USD, Michael Jordan found time to win two Olympic Gold medals, 6 NBA Championships, and battle the Monstars from Moron Mountain in the1996 film, Space Jam. Now, this blog is not here to engage in the ongoing MJ…

It’s May 31st

 Sometimes my Spotify playlist gets me all the way together. I’m an early riser on most days. Shutting off alarms at 5am, 6am, or 7am doesn’t scare the kid. However, even when I’m up, I’m not always active. Today was one of those days. As I rolled out of bed to begin my morning routine, I opened my Spotify…

Just Chill, Bro

“Team No Sleep”  “No days off” “I’m out here grinding” “It’s a hustle, right?” When I was in my teens and early 20’s, I rarely took time off – from anything and for anyone. Whether I was in school, mowing my yard (I don’t have any brothers and my parents allowed that to be my first…
