I don’t know about you but I really struggle with social media sometimes.

Feels like it’s a necessary evil for entrepreneurs and business owners to constantly be putting themselves out there... generating content... staying visible. I mean... how ELSE am I going to find you? YOU. The person I was meant to bless, to help, to entertain, to support or just to connect with.

I’ve always been a private person. I don’t like airing dirty laundry in public. I don’t like low production value, high sensationalism, gossip or the stuff that makes some people LOTS of 💰💰💰💰💰💰 (you choose what that is). I don’t put many of my daily photos or family memories on the internet for people to save in their devices.

But I put myself out there. Because maybe just that one person who needed to see someone like them... feels bolder to find more people to help, entertain and bless.

Hoping you are having an awesome weekend and even more, blessing all you beautiful mamas and your mamas on this Mother’s Day weekend!

As usual! An absolutely BRILLIANT #TheStateofVO with #DCGlennATL of #TagTeamWhoomp laying down FACTS about the hustle of VO, Acting and the Voiceover Industry!

Someone who was ALREADY at the top of his game… humbling himself to become a beginning in Voiceover. To enthusiastically embrace the Hustle. To become ONE with the hard work in a 360 degree manner. Thinking ahead and nurturing relationships to GUARANTEE his success. The marks of a true professional and a VO champion. 

Congrats to Monique She for your @kaoticaeyeball win!!

Always happy to see all of my peers, coaches and influences in one “room” together.

Thank you @dcglennatl for taking time out tonight to pay it forward. 🙏🏼❤️

💜🎧 𝗪𝗵𝘆 𝗱𝗼 𝘄𝗲 𝗻𝗲𝗲𝗱 𝗰𝗼𝗻𝘀𝘁𝗮𝗻𝘁 𝗲𝗻𝗰𝗼𝘂𝗿𝗮𝗴𝗲𝗺𝗲𝗻𝘁? ... constant kind words... constant reassurance?

Because we forget... THAT easily. We see the bigness of the world and believe we are very small. When the truth is... we ARE the bigness in a small world. We are the creative consciousness of the world. We influence the goodness and the evil in the world. We are made of the same stuff of stars.

When I was totally stuck in my career, my personal life, my head - I hired a hypnotherapist. I literally cried my head off to her every week for months on my 2 hour commute home from work - 2 buses, 2 subway lines and a long walk. She gave me audios of our conversations so I could literally BRAINWASH myself with GOOD thoughts to combat the painful hopelessness.

There are many challenges. Many problems. Many people who don’t believe in or want to contribute to solutions. Many people operate from a place of stubborn fear instead of informed faith.

Believing in positive change, upward trends and abundance is a choice. Seeing healing and thriving in our mind’s eye is a radical act of love. We are constantly creating our reality in our thoughts, beliefs and actions.

So give yourself evidence of everything that could go RIGHT today and how what you want is POSSIBLE. A tiny win is still a win. And then take actions that support that!

I adore my monthly accountability partner, the multipliferously talented (yes, I made that word up because she is just 𝗧𝗛𝗔𝗧 𝗚𝗢𝗢𝗗) Sonia Meneses 💪🏼

Going strong for two years... though our goals have evolved and our business goals and needs have changed and grown... we continue to support each other.

We met inside a Facebook group, have never met in person, and have very different goals yet our meetings have been essential to our growth as people and business owners.

Do you have a business accountability buddy? Did you know you can go one step deeper and hire someone to really help you kick your goals into high gear (I’ve been an Accountability Coach for 5 years!)?

If you don’t have someone, ask for one in groups you trust. And if you want some 𝘀𝗲𝗿𝗶𝗼𝘂𝘀 high touch help, don’t hesistate to reach out. It’s not a service I always promote, but I was a project manager for 15 years and can help you get things 𝗗𝗢𝗡𝗘!

𝗠𝗲𝗹𝗶𝘀𝘀𝗮, did I overhear that you do 𝗽𝗼𝗱𝗰𝗮𝘀𝘁 𝗶𝗻𝘁𝗿𝗼𝘀 and 𝗼𝘂𝘁𝗿𝗼𝘀?

Why yes! I’m so glad you asked! ☺️

What a joy to add my voice to the super impressive lineup of highly accomplished women featured by the New York business powerhouse herself, Tonia Dicosimo.

This new intro debuted 𝗧𝗛𝗜𝗦 𝗪𝗘𝗘𝗞 on Tonia’s interview with Technical Intelligence Officer and Cuber Security Manager Dr. Heidi L. Huhn, who has a heart for women in S.T.E.M. fields and was recently featured as woman of the month by P.O.W.E.R. Magazine.

Yesterday, April 4, 2021, Maya Angelou would have been 93 years old. In many people’s hearts, she will forever be missed for her courage, wisdom and tenacity. She is the originator of the oft-used quote “I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”.

Did you know Maya Angelou stopped celebrating her birthday in 1968? For years, she didn't celebrate her birthday because of Martin Luther King's death. Martin Luther King died on Maya Angelou's 40th birthday. For years, she didn't celebrate her birthday but communicated with and sent flowers to King's widow, Coretta Scott King.

Maya Angelou was an American poet, memoirist, and civil rights activist. She published seven autobiographies, three books of essays, several books of poetry, and is credited with a list of plays, movies, and television shows spanning over 50 years. She received dozens of awards and more than 50 honorary degrees.

❤️ 𝗩𝗮𝗹𝗲𝗻𝘁𝗶𝗻𝗲’𝘀 𝗗𝗮𝘆 𝗪𝗲𝗲𝗸𝗲𝗻𝗱! ... On a “good” year many people dread this holiday. For many, it reminds them they are not in a ~loving relationship~. For others, it reminds them of loved ones they lost. For millions of people - myself included - we don’t like the inflated prices and the overly high expectations on our wallets and relationships. 💰💰💸💰🌹

Then add to that social distancing during a pandemic, etc. etc. It’s a lot to handle emotionally, physically, mentally… for many of us.

Let me just tell you this from my experience if you are feeling down today. Even in the BEST relationship, there are challenges. Even in the relationship with YOURSELF… there are challenges. The grass isn’t green through every season (except maybe in Hawaii)

Wherever you are right now, you are enough and you are perfect. You are going through this point in your journey so you can become the person you need to be during the next leg of your journey. That’s it. There’s nothing WRONG with you or BAD about you. You are just passing through a leg of your journey. If you have quiet right now, enjoy the quiet. If you have mayhem - know that the mayhem doesn’t last forever. If you have someone to shower you with roses and love - just be present and enjoy it. That too only lasts for a limited time.

Don’t give up on the things you want and don’t force things that aren’t working. The one person you CAN get into a wonderful relationship RIGHT NOW is YOURSELF.

So, love all over yourself and be gentle and kind. You are a bright shining light in a dark world and we are all connected. Have a wonderful Valentine’s Day weekend! 💜🎧

(🤣 No, Jason did not put on lipstick for this selfie)
