Why Doesn’t It Matter That Cardi B Didn’t Get A Louboutin Endorsement?

Why Doesn’t It Matter That Cardi B...

‘I make money moves,’ Cardi says in her song Bodak Yellow. Welp, not everyone agrees that this song made all of the money moves that it could have. Social media, as it does, began criticizing the artist, Cardi B, for not securing an endorsement from Christian Louboutin before giving them so much love in her song. Here are a few things about this. Many artists shot out brands that they love simply because they love them. We walk around talking about our favorites and they don’t pay us a penny. When was the last time that Jordan, MAC, Pepsi, iPhone, Benz or any of them sent...

Meryl Streep, Donald Trump, and A Reason To Hope

Meryl Streep, Donald Trump, and A Reason...

by: Octavius Calloway   As the clock hit midnight on Dec 31, 2016 America rang in the New Year. On its surface it was a familiar celebration. In Times Square the lights shined and the music soared as a sea of people eagerly counted down the final seconds until the ball dropped and signified the end of a trying year. However, under the surface there was a country at odds with itself. A nation steeped in uncertainty and haunted by harsh truths-one of those brutal realities being that of a Trump presidency. It’s a concern shared by millions of Americans and one that was...

Book Review: Conversing With The Elephan...

Welcome back to this fun discussion we have been having between ourselves and this elephant. If you missed the introduction, check out the previous blog here.

Who Should Blog 2

Since I have started my life as a writer nothing has been the same. My weeks are conference calls, networking events, coaching sessions and learning-always learning. The point of all that I do is to get my brand established and flourishing.

During the course of my interactions, I constantly hear people of...

Why Did I Just Have Sex?

We all get that itch, but what caused it? Do we always have sex because we are looking for that leg shaking, drool dripping, back arching, nail digging, breath taking orgasm? No.  Although they sound like convincing reasons to climb into bed with someone, there is often more to it. Obligation Most of us have been here before.

The Importance Of Doing What You Love

The Importance Of Doing What You Love

Overwhelmed. Overwhelmed. Overwhelmed. I just wanted to enjoy my success, not work a lifetime trying to achieve it. Things had gotten too complicated. I had a team working with me, guiding me through processes that I did not understand. I was researching effective blogging, writing query letters and press releases. The more I paid attention the more I realized that I was writing everything BUT what I wanted to write…my books! Anyone who I got my books in front of would tell me that they loved them. Children were entertained and adults were inspired. Wonderful. My books...
