TALKING A GOOD GAME: WHY SOME REFUSE TO WALK AS MUCH AS THEY TALK

“You got all these dreams, well, put it to the test.” You ever meet those people who have all these animated ways in which they explain all their dreams and expectations? Or how about the people that can sell you hopes and dreams of what they promise to do for you once they become successful (usually men who lie to women fall under this category). There is just one problem with these types of people in life. They are theRead more

MARKETING ME: PUTTING YOURSELF INTO POSITION TO SUCCEED

“Knowing yourself will go a long way.” The year 2018 will be a pretty productive year for me because I am changing up a lot of my work so that I can put myself in a better position to grow my platform. Those platforms are my WordPress blog, Instagram, my podcast show, screenplays, one year research on my documentary, and buzz around my novel and book of short stories which could potentially be done by the end of 2018, earlyRead more

LIFE’S PREPARATIONS: WHY FINDING YOUR WAY IS SO HARD IN THE WORLD

“Ready, set, take on life!” You go through elementary school, go through middle school, graduate high school, and then graduate college. And once you have complete school, you step into the world and, nothing. Just like that, you graduate on a Sunday and nothing on that Monday morning. That pot of gold that everyone has been telling you about as it pertains to attaining a college education is false. You sit at home in your parent’s house thinking to yourself,Read more

THE EXPRESS ROUTE: WHY YOU SHOULD BE CAUTIOUS WHEN TRYING FAST ROUTES TO SUCCESS

“If it comes too easy, it can leave just as fast.” As a writer and soon to be photographer by the end of next year, I am building myself a platform. But that platform takes time and I mean a lot of time. And of course you see the people who don’t take the time to build, who inevitably grow faster and make money sooner. This is something that tends to make you a little bit discouraged when you seeRead more

SIDE GIGS: WHY MAKING ANOTHER INCOME IS CRUCIAL IN AMERICA TODAY

“Nothing wrong with F-U money.” In America today, working a conventional day job has become hard to come by in this ever changing society. So with that said, when working a job, you don’t know one moment to the next when you’re going to be on the chopping block. You could easily walk into your job and be told that we are downsizing. That’s when it hits you that you have no job, low bank account, and now your bills areRead more

PURSUE OR PAUSE: WHAT MAKES US NOT PURSUE

“I’m afraid to pursue, but more afraid to not.” Moving to New York City to attend graduate would have been a very scary move for so many, but not me. I just came out to the big city back in 2011 and have been here ever since. But I am also in the process of pursuing something else and that is screenwriting, filmmaking, and soon photography. These are career paths that so many for so long have strayed away fromRead more

SET OUT TO SUCCEED, PLAN TO FAIL: WHY MOST DON’T MAKE THEIR DREAMS A REALITY

“Want it, go get it, it won’t come to you.” People in society have this ideology that they want something and it’s supposed to come to them. And I don’t mean the idea of sitting around and doing nothing. I’m talking there are people who say that I go to work everyday. Shouldn’t that put them into a position to be where they want to be in life? And my reply to that would be no. You might be thinkingRead more

KNOCKING ON THE DOOR OF SUCCESS: WHY YOU SHOULD KEEP FIGHTING

“Don’t walk away when success is on the other side.” For the past 6.5 years I have been writing my screenplays, with the hopes of securing an agent. Now that I have more of a handle on my writing, I want to pursue an agent in the year 2018. But what I don’t want to do is quit when I am so close to doing what it is I want to do in life. I always remember the quote fromRead more

CONQUERING FEAR THAT ISN’T FEAR AT ALL

“Made up problems that really don’t exist.” Failure to launch is the term we use for someone that has a hard time stepping into the world and being on their own. They do so because they either don’t have anything that they are passionate about, or don’t have any goals. And when you don’t have goals you just sit around hoping for things to fall into place. But as long as you’re not putting yourself into harms way, then thingsRead more

MAKING GOOD MONEY: HOW COME PEOPLE DON’T HAVE A MORE DECLARATIVE CAREER EXPLANATION

“We all want it, but what is good money?” Ever hear people who are either unemployed or looking for work while on a job say they want to make good money. What exactly is a good job or good money? We all have a different perspective on what that means, but no one can define it in an entirety. So when I hear people say they need a “job” making “good” money I pause. For me, I am currently pursuingRead more
