Sibling Enlightenment

My mood is slowly changing again. I’m not sure of which direction it is going in. Is it up or is it down? Is it left or is it right? Diagonal? Who knows.

I’m somewhat focused with this new project I am working on and it is by far the strongest feeling thing I have ever attempted on my own. I feel so much promise with this one. I’m so anxious, yet so afraid at the same time. I like that.

I got home tonight and my kid sister had a meeting with me about how she wants to become an entrepreneur. She wants a Nintendo DSi, so she wants to sell her DS and find a way to get the remainder of the money to pay for it. How a 14 year old managed to inspire me from this tiny scenario, I’m not sure. But I do know that her ambition has fueled me in a way that I cannot explain.

So this Friday or Saturday I will set out on my first venture for my new project. I hope to hit this thing face first because I’d rather crash, burn, and learn early on and be able to build from there. So many ideas, so much time, so little clue as to what the heck I am doing. But in the end, all that matters is that I take the opportunity and run with it like OJ Simpson did with his white Bronco. I run this. Music is motivation. So it’s time for ┬áme to turn up the volume and think.

Peace out kids.


Making Progress

I’m now back to the drawing board. What I want will never change. I want to be the boss. Not of the other person though, just of my own destiny and paycheck. I have a new project in the works and this one will most definitely go well beyond my usual limitations of self. I feel great promise in this one but it will remain under wraps until I can get a hold of it and figure out how to make it sprout wings and take off a bit.

I spent about two hours talking to my mom about this, tonight. I have so many great ideas that I have no clue what to do with. We went back and forth about random business ideas and the fact that no celebrities have just one source of income, yet we as everyday ┬ápeople on the grind find it so easing to rely on one thing. We need to think ahead. We need to see beyond. I watch so many celebs. Some are talented, some are, in my opinion, just plain trash. But, they’re doing their thing. It’s time I get back to my thing. It’s time to change the way I think globally. I need to meet new people, not only for friendships, but for connections. I need to network with people who think beyond what they have to do for homework. I need to be inspired.

My mom says I need a mentor. Someone who has done it before. I once met Russell Simmons in Union Square and it blew my mind. Not because he was a celeb, but because there was so much about becoming an entrepreneur that I wanted to ask him. So much I missed out on. So much I needed guidance on that I never got the opportunity to fly with. Oh well, no sense in crying over spilled milk. All I can do now is try to fly and depend on family and friends to catch me and push me back up when I fall.

People don’t follow what you do, they follow what you believe. I think I understand that very well now. Rev Run said the best way to make money is to make someone else money. I have no clue at all how I am going to incorporate that into my latest idea, but I’m sure I will figure it out along the way. I have faith in my abilities and I know for sure I have at least two people holding me down. There may be others, but hey, they have their own things to worry about. I appreciate even one.

Thanks everyone, for reading and encouraging me over the years. Some people have watched my writing evolve from nonsense to simply better nonsense. I hope it will always remain nonsense. If it doesn’t, then that means I am losing my sense of humor. In such event, please run me over with a Smart car while doing 2 mph and honking the horn. Never let the downs define you. Let them make you stronger. There is no success without failure. And always remember, failure is a thing, an action. You cannot be a failure. You can only fail to believe in yourself.
