Cosmic Battles

Are not ‘out there’. The devil you are fighitng is within you. Haters, bad habits, and temptations are devils specific to you and your weaknesses. Haters are human manifestations of thoughts you already have about yourself. You’ve decided you’d rather go to war with the people because it’s much less painful than going to war...

What Bishop T. D. Jakes & George Costanza Get Right

What Bishop T. D. Jakes & George Costanza Get Right

Does it feel *filled*? Happy is complex, but are you at least at peace? You’ve been doing it the exact same way since you started. Putzing or hustling. Accommodating or burning bridges. Whatever your weapons of choice, your results have been the same. Over and over again. On opposite day, George finally figures it out. “My life is the...

Commitment, Surrender, & the Holy Grail

Commitment, Surrender, & the Holy Grail

The partner you want. The weight you want to lose. The business you want to build. Peace of mind. Money. Whatever. All of it is buried under heaps and piles of I don’t want to’s and I don’t likes. Behind all those negative ideas are presuppositions traumas, and bad habits. In finding your holy grail,...

A Word on Doin’ Too Damn Much!

A Word on Doin’ Too Damn Much!

Nobody tells you this when you’re scaling, but a word of warning, it sucks. There are some awesome things about needing to grow; more money, great clients, etc. But the energetic and material mathematics works in such a way where if one thing changes, there’s a domino effect and everything has to change at least...

You are not special

You are not special

The most liberating moment I’ve had in the last couple of years has been a deep realization that I’m not special. Now, I’ve never striven to be. And my parents were particularly good at driving that point home that we children were not special. But this recent requirement to be seen and heard to make a living...

People Live Here

People Live Here

I remember once my mother fussing about the house in anticipation of company arriving. Family actually. Dusting high and low, mopping the floor, unwittingly making a striking cocktail of mustard gas, all in the name of clean. In the name of perfection. My father, in a moment of sanity hollered back at her from a...

Hustle Harder…No.

Hustle Harder…No.

As someone who is completely done with the recovery time after quarterly burnouts and spirals if despair, I’m through with the Great American Hustle experiment. Seeing this stupid shit plastered on memes and shiny glass windows of co-working spaces, had me working in the exact opposite direction of my greatest strengths. I would venture to...

Why no one is supporting YOUR Business

Why no one is supporting YOUR Business

In the last few weeks, there has been a lot more talk in my inner circles about support for Black Businesses. “Why don’t people support Black Businesses?” For me, it is a nerve-grating, rhetorical question. Why doesn’t anyone support any business? My Agency serves businesses all over the city of Chicago and two other states....
