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!

No vacancy!

Don’t allow people or bad thoughts to occupy space in your head rent free!
I own some real estate and I would never allow a tenant to stay rent free. In that same spirit I would never allow negative conversations or gossip to occupy my mind rent free. My mind is the most valuable piece of real estate I own. The ideas that live there have given me the greatest returns. To think I would allow a non-paying relationship or conversation to stay there for free when paying ideas are looking for a room is crazy! 
Let negative people be negative with their negative lives and their negative bank accounts! 
When it comes to negativity...
repeat after me...
No Vacancy!

Massive Equifax Breach: What you need to know to protect yourself

Have you heard about the latest breach? The Equifax data breach is a stark reminder that you need identity theft protection. Every year 10 million Americans have their identity stolen. Here is what you need to know about the Equifax breach. Equifax Breach Quick Facts: Equifax is one of the 3 major credit bureaus, and as such, has access to some of the most sensitive information about you. · Number of people affected: 143 million Americans, which is 44% of the population. · Types of data compromised:Social Security numbers, Driver’s License Numbers, date of birth, credit card information and more... What does this mean? 143 million people and their families are at risk of their stolen data being used. It could take up to 18 months or more to resolve, and you may need to take time off from work to deal with this issue. This is the "pearl harbor of identity theft” one expert said. “You don’t take protection now, you will be one of the people victimized over and over again for the foresee…

You don't need a second job...

Follow the logic here. When most people need more money, they go get a second job. Your primary income is a job. It’s not bringing you enough income, so you look to supplement it with another one. Usually the second job is some kinda retail or unusual shift and pays less than the first one. If you think about it, it is actually more of the same. You're getting more of something that isn't meeting your needs anyway. After you work your fulltime there are only a few hours left for you to create more income. We only have 24 hours in a day, so your time is somewhat limited. You’re typically tired from the fulltime so you can only work the part time a few days a week...if they let you. Then after you take the taxes out, additional costs incurred by working and extra job (dinners out, different apparel, baby sitters) what did you REALLY bring home per hour after working and all the commuting and errands that come with it?

Does that make sense? I&…
