I toggle between these two spaces often. Between defeating my own lack of confidence, I find the courage not only to continue to promote my endeavors, but also encourage those looking to pursue theirs. These are not easy tasks.

Today I found out one of my nights had not only garnered a liquor sponsor, but an increase in the budget. I share this update with you, simply to say, a little consistency and focus can create opportunities, that may have looked like dead ends .Close your eyes and imagine, then open them and create a way. #Boozeandboogie is held at The Charleston 2076 N.

Everyone is grandstanding for impressions. I no longer care whether you think I'm dope, capable, cute, old, done or dumb. We put far more energy than ever before into collecting people and competing for no more than a like. And one has to ask what does it lead to? Me spending more time sitting and nursing you into likeability, when I have work to do!? This isn't to suggest that you don't use social media, but that wait to SEE who approves will kill your dreams. Drop and go. Keep going. Maybe I'm speaking to myself, I have no problem with that. Someone is fueling your need to be validated, by people who have no control over your destiny. If you linger too long you'll end up missing the two beings who do... YOU AND YOUR GOD!
