Today I want to celebrate my friends and associates. I want to celebrate all that they have done, are doing, and aspire to do. Hopefully it will inspire you to support their efforts, where and when possible, and most importantly—encourage you to celebrate and uplift your friends and associates.

We spend a great amount of time on social media clicking on 👍❤ and other symbols to express our sentiments towards the achievements, dreams, and goals that our inner circles have publicly announced. We may even repost their messages so that our social network can be made aware of these victories and aspirations. But in what ways can we do more, go higher, and provide greater opportunities for those we call our friends? Let’s do some shout outs!

On July 3, 2019 I launched the Don’t Call It Small…Business podcast in honor of my father and my past dreams of being a broadcast journalist, and my desire to educate and be educated on business and by those in business. I also wanted a platform where I could celebrate my friends, associates, and complete strangers. Every week I devote time to highlighting the efforts of people that I know intimately, somewhat, very little, and not at all. It feels awesome to share my growing and evolving world with them, and vice versa.

So far through this podcast I’ve highlighted over 46 people with the following backgrounds:

  • published authors
  • psychotherapists, psychologists,
  • entrepreneurs
  • film, TV, and music industry professionals
  • Visual arts

I still have so many more people to highlight and interview. As the podcast is shared with strangers, they too reach out for that connection, and I gladly accept the relationship. Life is about relationships. Business is about interconnected relationships. We form, strengthen, weaken, break, and mend relationships on a daily basis. I don’t have the billions of dollars, yet, to invest in friends and strangers businesses, projects, and ideas as I would like, so I’m discovering and embracing other ways to lend my support.

Episode 22 aired this Wednesday and it featured my right hand, Eboni Brown. Listen to our conversation here Be sure to like and share it with your network of family, friends, associates, and social media pals!

Then ask yourself, how are you celebrating and showing support to the people you know and want to know?

You don’t have to wait until 2020 to start. Take the first step today!

Do you understand this difference?

Prepare yourself for the tests. Learn the lesson, preferably on the first attempt, because who really likes taking tests over and over again? Get out of your head and get out of your way. There’s so much to see, do, experience, feel and explore in this vast world; we’re wasting time and precious moments re-taking tests!

P.S. Thank you Arleen for sharing this image with me this morning. As you can see, I’m paying it forward!

Today I spent several hours at the Porsche Experience Center in Atlanta. It was a gift from my friends T&J, who wanted to honor me through my next chapter in life. So from the pictures below you can see that I enjoyed myself.

But today was more than a Porsche girl’s speed and power fix kinda day.

Today is the anniversary of two major events that directly impacted my life, and will forever remain with me. Two events that involve two people that were in my life but will never be in that way ever again. One transitioned years ago to be freed from a body that wasn’t cooperating with him. The other person—well things just didn’t go as I planned.

I was so moved when leaving the Porsche Center that I decided to record what I was thinking and feeling to share with others who may be going through something similar, and to encourage you to keep walking, keep climbing, keep dreaming, keep being (or trying to be) the person you were called to be.

I refused to spend this day moping around, sadly reminiscing over a past. Instead I choose to spend this day celebrating life and being grateful of my past and for who were in it, and celebrating the life of a person who left here too soon (for all of us still here) but knowing that where he is now is far better than here. Continue smiling, singing, and looking after us Nate (“Badump” to me). You are deeply missed.

We only get this one opportunity at this life on this level of existence. There’s no pause button, no rewind, and no do-overs.

And…I don’t think they have Porsches on the other side. Or iphones, the Internet, social media, IHOP, In-N-Out Burger, Pandora, Netflix, or blogs. *smile*

Live your life and live it fully, with no regrets. Check out my video reflection from earlier today.

Have a blessed day family. I still have a full day of living, learning, and loving left to enjoy!

Love always,
