What Are you Empowering & Manifesting in your Life? ๐ŸŒฑ
.
Our words, actions and especially THOUGHTS have so much power in our lives in ways that we sometimes are not even cognizant of. Be mindful of what emotions you're empowering in your personal life. By empowering fear, you can hold yourself back from major opportunities and blessings.

When God has an opportunity for you, he'll put you in the place to receive it. Sometimes we get comfortable in our current situations and think that we're not ready to move to the next step but when you know, you know. Today I started a very new exciting chapter in my life at @universalmusicgroup in their College & Lifestyle Marketing Dept. for Urban and Latin music ๐ŸŽถ

One piece of advice that I heard last year from @issarae & have held onto is the importance of NETWORKING ACROSS instead of Up โ†”๏ธ

I have found so much value in learning from and working with my peers, those who are out here in the trenches making things happen for themselves, those who are honest, hungry and hardworking. Oftentimes, we think that we need to strike gold by connecting with someone with social or economic status, but if you look around you, you'll find people who have exactly the skills and talents that you may need to execute your vision. Don't be afraid to reach out and collaborate, the answer will always be "no" if you don't.

What Does it Take to Grow? ๐ŸŒฑ
.
I've learned and am still constantly learning that real growth, one that is lasting and genuine, takes HARD work and honesty. You have to be honest with yourself about where you've gone wrong, what you could've done better, what bad habits you're holding onto and why. It is easy to blame other people and situations for our own pitfalls. It's also easy to ignore our negative ways and go about business as usual but if you want to grow, you have to soul-search, take accountability and make some moves toward change.

staying focused & out of the mix.

First music video appearance for the brand and I'm so thankful, every new milestone drives me to go that much harder!

All of the Soulja Boy talk, especially the interview on Everyday Struggle, really got me thinking about the lack of support for black entrepreneurs of color by our own community ๐Ÿ“Œ

Not saying you HAVE to buy Ray J's glasses, Lavar's BBB shoes or subscribe to TIDAL, but when each of them dropped so many people's first response was to clown it, treat it like a joke and talk down on it instead of encouraging the business moves by our own... we have to do better.
