Everything is possible


Kevin Hart is one of my favorite comedians in the game right now. 

Say what you want, but I think he's hilarious and this is my blog so save your opinions and understand the point.

Rewind a few years back...

Crazy, I remember sitting in the front row of the Richmond Funny Bone seeing this guy perform for the first time.  Honestly, I didn't know who he was. I went because I was blessed with some free tickets.  I really enjoyed the show and thought he was pretty funny considering all the empty seats. The capacity of that venue is 250. This will be important in a second.

Fast forward a few years......

I watched this same guy bring out around 12,000 people to ONE of his shows! He LITERALLY filled up the Richmond Coliseum! Now you can't even turn on the television without seeing an advertisement for one of his movies or him doing a commercial for a product or 12! Everyone see's his success, but do you think everyone remembers his story? Though they see the shine, do you think most see the grind? 

I politely say no. When he caught his break in the early 2000's he had been in the comedy game over 10 years! Word on the street is a fan, or lack there of, threw a piece of chicken at him while he was on stage once! The good news is all of that was temporary.  

I'm sure there were moments of great discouragement, but he didn't quit and neither should you. You shouldn't give up on your dreams. Don't give up what you want most for what you want now. Moral of the story?  Everything is possible if you're willing to work like it depends on you and pray like it depends on God. 

Salute K Hart! Salute!

"The most important career choice you'll make is who you marry" 
Don't let anybody guilt you into a miserable marriage! 
The majority of married people that you know are miserable because they settled to societal pressures .....even if they won't admit it. 
Some folks out here getting married to say you're married.....but to each his own....as for me and my house if we can't be peaceful, loyal, & ain't eem trying to shoot at the same baskets & pay the same taxes I gotta keep it moving!
This is not to say marriage can't work. I absolutely believe it can, but with the right connection, reasons, and plan! But what do I know? I'm just a fat kid that eats too many crabcakes

Whats your end game?

Whats your end game? 
Are you, right now, where you thought you'd always be in life?
Are you close to it? 
You can’t change the past. 
Think of all the hours at all your jobs. And that’s put you where you are today. Were you working on building a business of your own with residual income, a business you can sell or pass down, or were you trading your time for a paycheck? 
Was it worth it?
Are you getting what you set out for?
It’s important that we all stop and think. Are we doing something that aligns with our end game. The sad thing is that most people don’t even have an end game because they never sat down to think about and design their perfect life and how they’ll get there. Most people spend more time planning vacations than they do planning their futures!

People say we should all dream again. Sure, dreams are good to have. But most people just become dreamers. The graveyards are full of dreams that were never lived, because they never created a plan....or if they did tried to exec…

Flaky people make my ass itch!

Flaky people.

Few things get under my skin more than unreliable people.

You know, those who don't follow through on what they've promised.

Or don't show up for a call or a meeting at a time you've scheduled.

I can't even begin to tell you how many times I've been stood up.

So how do you deal with such a person?

The best way is...

You DON'T!
Fuck those people! 
Hey I understand something can come up. People get busy. Emergencies happen.

And long ago I used to have a "3 strike rule" about it.

Three strikes, and you're OUT.

But I realized in the world of business, where your word is your bond, there's simply no room for people like this.

So it's become "one strike and you're out" for me.

It's just too damn much mental energy dealing with people who don't do what they say they're going to do.

Sadly, our world is FULL of them.

And if you want to build a kick-butt team of entrepreneurs, and do it with the least amount agony and fru…
