Outside's OK! 

As I continue my journey in this particular industry, my observations have caused me in many times to say how I miss the era that I grew up in. Not in the sense of the music itself, but just the mentality where the game was filled with trendsetters.  People comfortable enough in their own skin that when they opened their mouths to speak their truths they also opened our eyes to not only the world but their world, and in I really miss that in the cookie cutter, if it ain't broke don't fix it mentality that exists presently.  It's important to be comfortable with who you are, both internally and externally.  The world is filled with amazing and unique people each with their own special gifts to contribute to society and the world as a whole.  Why not be one of them?  No one was put here to be anyone's clone or copy.  Look inside and discover your greatness and wear it with pride. The world doesn't need another of anything or anyone that already comfortable in their individuality, what it does need however is the 1st and best you that you can be. We all will be better for it.

"Don't compare yourself with anyone in this world...if you do so, you are insulting yourself" - Bill Gates"

"If you celebrate your differentness, the world will too.  It believes exactly what you tell it - through the world you use to describe yourself, and the choices you make to express yourself.  Tell the world you are one-of-a-kind creation who came here to experience wonder and spread joy. Expect to be accommodated." - Victoria Moran

Quote Of The Day! 

"You are where you are today because you stand on somebody's shoulders. And wherever you are heading, you cannot get there by yourself. If you stand on the shoulders of others, you have a reciprocal responsibility to live your life so that others may stand on your shoulders. It's the quid pro quo of life. We exist temporarily through what we take, but we live forever through what we give."

- Vernon Jordan

Quote Of The Day! 

"If you wake up deciding what you want to give versus what you're going to get, you become a more successful person. In other words, if you want to make money, you have to help someone else make money."

- Russell Simmons

"I had to make my own living and my own opportunity. But I made it! Don't sit down and wait for the opportunities to come. Get up and make them."
