    My Purpose Is Black

    Season 3 Episode 8

    In this episode, I address some questions I've gotten about who I serve and why. Especially in the current times, with so much going on , I knew it was important for me to verbalize exactly why my purpose is Black serving. I don't limit my services but the reason and the inspiration is serving a population who does not regularly get served.

    Discipline Is Queen

    Discipline Is Queen

    Season 3 Episode 7

    In this episode, I talk about how discipline has influenced what I have been doing over the first half of the year almost. In January, I set some actionable and realistic goals for myself after I evaluated how my previous attempts didn't work as well for me. So I took advantage of the lessons of failure and pivoted those into a system that works for me and produces results.

    First Quarter Was RECKLESS

    First Quarter Was RECKLESS

    Season 3 Episode 5

    In this episode, I talk about how crazy my year started off and how the first quarter treated me so recklessly. I also discuss how I started to pivot and feel better about the circumstances and take over the circumstances in the year. Since the last episode, the world has been going thru a pandemic and I've actually done pretty well and one of the things I've done to get myself by is watch youtube. Friend of the podcast, Wes, put me on to a new web series coming out and of course i had to have the case on because the series is called RECKLESS. Timing is always perfect.
