Breaking News: I FEEL PAIN
<img src="" alt="itunes pic" /><br />I don't know that we give ourselves permission to feel pain - to not only be hurt but to just be able to SAY it. When we feel pain our instincts lead us to either run, fight it or even just be paralyzed because we don't know HOW to react. We often try to distance ourselves from the pain but avoiding pain shouldn't be our goal. Health24: "Pain plays an important role in the lives of humans. It presumably serves to protect us from harm by making us associate certain harmful actions with a sensation of pain. And to alert us to diseases or conditions which we may have. Pain also produces an emotional reaction, not just a physical one." NEWSFLASH: I feel pain too.

What are my thoughts on them? I'm recording this because the ACTION PLAN is much more important than the pretty pictures. I'm going to talk about some things that you can do to make things happen quicker. You may need to cut and RE-PASTE because I wonder if you have the most important thing front and center. And you're going to need a few POST IT NOTES because I want you to put the actions on those pretty pictures and once one action is done, remove it and put up the next one. 5 POINTS I'm going to discuss: 1. MANTRA for the YEAR. 2. Dream JOB! 3. GIVING must be FRONT and CENTER! 4. Be STILL or STILL be MOVING! 5. Dream TRIPS!

What To Leave In 2013!
<img src="" alt="itunes pic" /><br />AAAHHH! The last day of the year. There's something so magical about the NEW YEAR! We make resolutions, we talk about all of the things we'd like to do better to do NEW in the NEW YEAR and my hope is that you stick to it! I have compiled a list of things I think you should LEAVE in 2013! 1. Negative inner (and outer dialogue). 2. Half-assing. Do things wholeheartedly. 3. Family drama (and all other dramas). 4. Overspending. 5. No accountability. Let's talk about these vision boards. 6. Complaining. Start everyday with THANK YOU! 7. Being afraid to LOVE. 8. Lazy presentations. 9. Not being deliberate & intentional. 10. Not being prepared for YOUR moment!

WHAT ARE "MY" GIFTS? How Do I Find Them? How Do I Use Them?
<img src="" alt="itunes pic" /><br />I believe that every person has a unique "gift" or gifts. So many of us don't know where to find them or we've found them and don't know how to use them. Here's my short list in hopes that it kick starts you for 2104. 1. Look Closely. 2. Ask Around. 3. Test Them. 4. USE! 5. The GIVE BACK! Sometimes our deepest wounds reveal our greatest gifts!

10 LESSONS FROM MY MOM (aka America's Gangsta): Ha!
<img src="" alt="itunes pic" /><br />I love my Mom. She's probably THEE most fearless (in nearly every way) than anyone I know. Good ol' Brenda! Here are some pretty cool things I've learned from her over the years. 1. If you get an invitation, attend. Otherwise, don't expect people to come to your party and we all love seeing people at OUR party. 2. Speak! 3. Never date a friend's EX. 4. Never ASK permission for anything that you shouldn't be. 5. Have fun! 6. Put your PIECES on! 7. If you say something TO or ABOUT someone that would cause them to hit you in your mouth, ask yourself if you would still say if you got hit in it and if you STILL do and get hit, be ready for that too! 8. When choosing a mate, think about the kind of FATHER he will be FIRST. 9. NEVER shrink yourself. 10. Do it ANYWAY.

<img src="" alt="itunes pic" /><br />This has to be hands down the #1 question I get asked so I'm going to knock this one out for you in hopes that you get a better understanding of how (I believe) mentorship REALLY works. Points: 1. Your mentor usually finds you! 2. It's good to have mentors for different things. 3. Once you have a mentor ... SUBMIT! 4. Stop asking.* (but not really ...) 5. ME. How I'm mentoring through podcasts & am at capacity due to my current needy mentees. *lol*

How To Get Ahead By READING: Pick Up A BOOK!
<img src="" alt="itunes pic" /><br />It's no secret that I read a lot. I know that that there are PLENTY of people that don't read. Take a look at these stats: 25% of adults will not read a single book this year 33% of high school graduates never read another book for their entire life 42% of college graduates never read another book after college 80% of US families did not buy or read a book last year That's a SAD state of affairs. I'm going to do what I always do and hit you with 5 points on what reading does for you: 1. Creates Confidence. 2. Be Deliberate.* (I will explain) 3. Vocabulary EXPANSION. 4. Increases Creativity. (*and then you can be your own person and stop copying) 5. Concentration (which leads to focus which helps you conquer goals).

STOP MAKING EXCUSES: How To Get Ahead By Getting Over It!
<img src="" alt="itunes pic" /><br />This one just came to me when someone commented on a short video on instagram with my Dad saying that they believed that them not having a father was a deciding factor (in exactly what I'm not sure but probably in why they haven't succeeded). So I'm going to break down: 1. Family (as African-Americans, most of us experienced generational trauma of SOME sort). 2. You don't have any money (see my last three podcasts on $$$). 3. Let's face it ... You're LAZY! 4. Stop being PETTY and a participant in DRAMA! 5. Question EVERYTHING! Take the "Is It TRUE Challenge!"

COMMON DENOMINATOR Found In Celebs & Other Successful People!
<img src="" alt="itunes pic" /><br />Over the years I have worked for many celebs (I consider them all to be entrepreneurs), high level excess and so on. I have read many autobiographies and worked directly for celebrities and I noticed that there were COMMON things about them that I believe led to their success. While the list is probably much longer than I can do in this podcast. I'm going to lay it out in my usual 5 points: 1. What TIME means to them. 2. How they EDIT their circle. 3. How quickly they make DECISIONS. 4. How they work on APPEARANCE/IMAGE. 5. How they develop & maintain RELATIONSHIPS.
