What To Do When The Unexpected Happens? 5 Things Growing Business’s Go Through And How To Get Through It

1002474_10201463407692930_1344612906_n

Are you an entrepreneur starting your business idea from scratch? Are you having trouble relying on those who claim they want to see you happy, prosper, and succeed, as they neglect to help you? Have you been lied to and told “I’m excited for you, anything you need me to do, I’m there for you.” ? Has your bank account resembled that less than a begging homeless man on the street? Have you ever had something unexpected happen that could possibly ruin your business before it even plateaus? And have you ever thought about ending it all?

If you’ve answered yes to at least three of these, then you are on the right track!

Starting a business is not easy. Unfortunately those around you develop what I like to call a mirrored sense of self, especially if they are not also starting a business. As you become clear about your destination and your soul begins the transition between choosing a right or a left when the fork on the road presents itself, and having a tunnel vision, your “friends” start to see what they are not doing compared to you. Beware of those who want your life, they will luxuriate while you suffer, and try to make you feel less than what you are worth, they are not your friends. As you become even more clear, your tunnel vision will separate everything into categories. Friends, Family members all alike: the ones who never do anything, the haters, bystanders, riders, liars, fake supporters, and real supporters. Choose wisely.

5 THINGS GROWING BUSINESS’S GO THROUGH:

1. INEVITABLE SELF DOUBT:

- We start, before we even launch the business, to doubt ourselves. Not dealing with that doubt, forces its stay once we launch the business and creeps up on us from time to time, especially when we are not doing as well as we though business wise. Unfortunately, this will never go away, so sooner than later find a way to use its energy for the greater good of the business.

2. FALSE ENCOURAGEMENT:

- We finally break through with our first client, immediately we jump the gun thinking this one client will tell their friends, and they’ll tell their friends and before you know it, our business is booming. While the latter can happen, it’s not something that should encourage you, motivate, yes, but not encourage.

3. DEAD END FINDINGS AND TRUST

- Most people cannot do all the tasks required to run a business in 2014. Photos, networking, advertisement, etc… Often times we look else where to expand the business, but we come across people who say they’ll help, but never do, and those who want to help, but who might also snatch your ideas and run with it. Sometimes believing in yourself to do all things at least long enough until you find the right person is all you have to do. In this case simplicity is key.

4. A COMFORTABLE FLOW/COMPLACENCY

- We did it! We have regular clients, we have a good flow of money, we have notoriety…But in the grand scope of things, we are still on the rise. We often forget this thinking because we’ve served 30 people or even 100 people that have made it when we have barely scratched the surface. This is probably the hardest part, getting out of your own way. I suggest, bringing in someone that you trust who is older and more experienced to review your numbers and let you know what’s really good. This gives you perspective, like watching a movie for the fifth time, but feeling like you’re experiencing it for the first because you’ve invited someone who has never seen it. Basically, find ways to be real with yourself!

5. JOY

- We’ve now made it to national TV, spots in magazines, Youtube hits and regular readers and followers through out our blogs, Twitter, Facebook and social media accounts. We even have a personal salary, and one staff member! How cool is that? Here is where it gets tough, but not hard. Hard is something that’s difficult to break through, we’ve already accomplished that, tough is something that’s annoyingly difficult to rip through, but if we keep at it long enough (longevity) we can survive, grow, and multiply, ultimately becoming the business we set out to be, but this cannot happen without structure. So, this is the part where structure, and professionalism truly takes place.

Remember make great business decisions, never put someone else mask on before yours, know your self-worth, and my personal favorite…TRUST IN GOD!

Fro’s Are Back In Style! Erica Campbell Fiercely Covers Root Magazine @ImEricaCampbell @RootMagazine LOOK

12463_501328839976938_1481197010_n

The FRO is back! LARGE AND IN CHARGE!

If you know me, then you know I love Fro’s. I love all things Afrikan culture in America and in the mother land.

Erica Campbell rocks this cover! I saw pictures of it on her IG a while back, but this is the ultimate cover. Dare I say , one of the best magazine covers EVER!!!

She’s sleek, fashionable, stunning, and sexy all in one. I bet the Church aint mad at this one, as if to say this doesn’t evoke the same kind of “sexual content” they claimed this pic to give off… BdFMZpWIcAAWn4S.jpg-large

Let it go, get over it, she’s hot like this , or like that. Just because she’s a christian woman does not mean she has to be ugly , unfashionable, or unappealing. Some women are just BLESSED! She could be wearing a garbage bag and there will still be millions of people who find it attractive.

Hey as long as she is doing great things, having great morals, worshiping Jesus Christ, and living right by her Husband, WHY YOU MAD?!!!!!!

Buy that new alum when it hits stores! #GETHELP

Jennifer Lopez Spices It Up With Role Reversal In Her New Video “I Luh Ya Papi” Tackling Sexism @JLO WATCH

ass copy

(A Still From “I Luh Ya Papi”)

The video starts off with Jennifer Lopez and her friends (dancers) talking and joking with Danny the “record company guy” giving her ideas about her next video. “This is your 10th studio album….” he gives her options, her friends make fun, along with JLO and then decide why not have a music video like the guys do.

“….If she was a guy we wouldn’t be having this conversation at (oil) all …they would seriously have her up in this mansion with all those girls, or maybe even a yacht, you know how they stay doing that yacht scene with Champaign….WHY DO MEN ALWAYS OBJECTIFY THE WOMEN IN EVERY SINGLE VIDEO LIKE WHY CAN’T WE FOR ONCE OBJECTIFY THE MEN….”

I hope you enjoy, before the video I must say the song wasn’t doing it for me, but after seeing JLO back dancing hiphop and getting down I love the song and the video, the objectifying guys, although not right either, is a great concept and a great conversation starter. Women are often seen as objects, sex toys, worthless, so bringing to light that darkness people try to over look by putting it in a music video makes this video worth writing about. ENJOY!

The Consummate R&B Performer Vocal Bible Brandy Takes Over Essence Festival @trueexclusives @4everbrandy WATCH

Video

It’s no wonder the world refers to Brandy Norwood, actress, singer extraordinare as the Vocal Bible.

At first, I was against this title, as The Bible is nothing to be playing over, or duplicating, but I guess meaning and what’s pure at heart really matters most.

They call Brandy the Vocal Bible because she is the blue print to what many females of today use, and have used to record their vocals on uptempo R&B tracks and modern day Rhythm and Blues. Brandy was one of the first to do it!

Her vocal control is insane, her vocal lows and highs are clear and now that she is adding movement to her daily routines, and stage performances she has become the consummate R&B performer!

Check her out behind the scenes with True Exclusives at the Essence Festival!
