The following is an oldie from (my 1st ever blog site) 2011. I re-read it and I still feel the same way. I better take my own advice:
THINK ABOUT THIS: WHAT’S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN YOU AND A VIDEO HOE OR A RECORD EXEC?
-“SHE” MAKES MONEY AND “YOU” DON’T!
-“SHE” HAS THE COURAGE TO SHOW HER ASS ON TELEVISION IN FRONT OF MILLIONS OF VIEWERS (including children) AND “YOU” DON’T HAVE THE COURAGE TO SELL SOMETHING THAT WON’T RESULT IN THE DAMNATION OF ONES SELF AND SOUL!
“SHE” BELIEVES SELLING HER BODY WILL MAKE A GREAT BOOK OR PAY FOR COLLEGE TUITION AND “YOU” WON’T EVEN WRITE YOUR MOTIVATIONAL BOOK OR CHILDREN’S STORIES!
“SHE” TRAVELS AND “YOU” DON’T!
“SHE” HAS THE GALL TO DO SOMETHING DESTRUCTIVE AND “YOU” DON’T HAVE THE BALLS TO DO SOMETHING DIFFERENT!
THE RECORD EXEC AND THE VIDEO HOE WORK TOGETHER TO SELL GARBAGE MUSIC AND VIDEOS THAT HAVE JAPANESE GIRLS TANNING, GETTING NAILS & HAIR BRAID EXTENSIONS THINKING THEY WANT TO BE BLACK AND “YOU” WON’T EVEN WORK WITH ME TO TEACH CHILDREN WHO DON’T KNOW THERE IS A LIFE OUTSIDE OF MUSIC VIDEOS!
BOTH VIDEO HOE AND RECORD EXEC “BELIEVE” IN THEIR PRODUCT AND “YOU” DON’T! (Side Bar: They may go to hell for it but there’s no section for that in their business plan)
Yeah Yeah, I know sex sells but what makes you think your non sex business won’t? You’re never going to find out if you don’t put it out there! What are you going to do if God or your Mother asks you why you didn’t follow your ENTREPRENEURIAL DREAMS? What are you going to say? Don’t stand there looking stupid! It’s not like you didnt’ have time, how old are you now? If you’re over 30 you have no excuse. TALK TO THE HAND!
I’ve reached a point where I don’t listen to certain people who have excuses for not doing something (Sometimes I won’t listen to myself too). I can talk smack now, I’ve come a long way since I started my business in 2008. Being black is no excuse. Coming from a bad childhood, being a teenage mother, a single mother, blind, short, fat, skinny, poor, religious, gay, straight or any other fraganackle BS reason is no excuse. I recently realized the following:
-THERE IS NO “EDUCATION SECTION” ON A CEO’s RESUME (Show me the money).
-INVESTORS DON’T CARE IF YOU WENT TO UCLA OR UcLa (University On The Corner Of Lexington Avenue, just show them the money).
-PEOPLE WHO EAT AT MCDONALDS NEVER ASK THE OWNER WHERE HE CAME FROM AFTER THEY ORDER THEIR FOOD.
-THE MOST IMPORTANT TOPIC AT YOUR FUNERAL IS HOW YOU MADE OTHERS FEEL WHILE YOU WERE ALIVE.
SOOOOOOO. With that being said, I suggest you act like your business is a nice booty and drop it like it’s HOT before you miss the opportunity to SHAKE THE GOOD CLEAN STUFF THATCHA MAMA GAVE YA!
