A Black Business Model

"When Did You Fall in Love with Hip-Hop?"

It has been awhile since my last post because...wait for it, wait for it...I have been busy WRITING my book! Now that I am officially settled into my new Harlem apartment, my 2 year old is in school, and all of our travel and guests have subsided, I am finding it much easier to focus.

For several reasons (all of which will be revealed in my book), my answer to that question is February over a year later, my "lover's" bragadocious-ness has rubbed off on me. I feel like the "best that ever did it", I have fully embodied "The Muse" persona, and "everyday I'm entreprehustling."

Those of you who have been following my journey can understand how big a deal it is for me to write those words. I have been aware of my "greatness" for awhile, but I have been plagued by fear. Fortunately, I have always been able to act in spite of my fears, but the mental work it takes has been exhausting. I have finally come to a place where my mind is conditioned enough to jump off this mountain with the self-assuredness that my wings will expand and I will soar to unimaginable heights. And if my wind gear happens to fail, I have the wherewithal to get back up that mountain in a fraction of the time it took me the first go-round. So Fear can suck my proverbial d*ck, I was made for this!
