HOT 97.1 Push 4 Peace

20 Sep

I wanted to give you a quick update on my career. I was offered the opportunity to help out the SWS Organization (An organization for women)  at Hot 97.1 Push  4 Peace event. It was  hosted by Lisa Evers  in Harlem. I  met Antonique Smith who played Faith Evans in the Notorious movie. I spent the afternoon with her and she was a doll. It was a great opportunity to network. I met Rose D who is the Associate Producer for Hot 97.1.It was a great day for networking and giving back to the community.

Are giving it your best shot?

31 Dec

Lately, have you thought you were giving everything you have to pursuing your dreams? I found myself asking that question recently and my answer was…….sort of. We all find ourselves in situations where we may become easily distracted and begin to lose sight of our goals; and I believe I’m right in assuming this is not independent of me. I work consistently towards my goals, but with splitting my time between two jobs, one fulltime and the other part time, it can become easy to fall behind.

Life for me is the everyday hustle of trying to survive knowing deep down inside that things will get better. It is important to have a mantra that repeats in your head. My mantra is “this too shall pass.” Any internal or external problems are just a test of your character and your response to the outcome is what will define your success. The music industry is unstable, inconsistent, and how your adaptation to the latest music trends and technological advances will determine your longevity.

In this new year give it your best shot and  do something as well as you possibly can, although you are not sure whether you will be able to succeed. That is my resolution for next year.
