Once upon a time Paladin Jordan Jr was seeking to build a library of successful stories and journeys of Black Men
Im going through the Labyrinth of Death and Deceit right now… But, I’ve been looking back at some of my older products – this is a video of me 8 years ago I believe when I was still a youngling teacher in Brooklyn. That voice and that cadence hitting strong bootz here!!! I sound more professional and put together here then I am now, shoot.
I was 28 years old here. I think I consider 28 the best year of my life. I was absolutely my strongest and most focused here for sure! The difference between me now and ten is, I’m much more battle tested now. I was an amazing servant for the world here. But, as someone once said, I hadn’t LIVED! Nor had life’s challenges and ills really broken into my life at this point.
I am going through… The metamorphosis of champions right now. Still deep in the burrows – BUT when I get to my next destination I definitely want to pick this project and purpose back up. Through all my battles and burdens in my current 36-year old heathen life, I still seek to elevate and appreciate the beautifully unique black men that I walk this earth with.
Tired of struggling to get your product line in order?
Try using the Value Ladder to get a grasp on where your products lie in correlation to one another.
This concept was introduced to me by Russell Brunson, author of Dot Com Secrets. This diagram/tool allows entrepreneurs like you visualize all of the ways you provide value to your audience. This tool implies and requires that your offerings come in a sequence. Sequence meaning there is an inherent order that you are presenting to the client. Businesses are encouraged to grab their audience attention and wet their pallets with a low risk, valuable offering. Once here, it is easier for businesses to move their customers up to higher end products that generally carry a higher price tag.
Drafting a value ladder will help you identify if and where you can diversity or concentrate your offerings for your audience. This is because the entrepreneur is able to see the entire product landscape from free offerings (A) – down to your most luxurious products (Z).
Why this tool works!
Personally, for me it was transformative to take my products and product ideas from my head down onto a workable and meaningful framework that has real business application and impacts on prospects and personal ideas around implementation. Also supports the real notion that social media activity is not business, in and of itself. It is merely the publicizing and media marketing of your business dealing and offerings.
I’m addicted to them now. I found them through music artist, turned mother and author – Amerie. I’ve followed her youtube channel mostly focused on books for about 2 years now. She recently posted a 40 minute writing video:
As a writer myself, I’ve personally struggled to be productive, find the motivation, and most importantly community for creative and productive works. Hopefully you find these videos and productivity companions for you. Just as they have been for me.
Apparently this phenomenon comes from Asian cultures where you can find even more videos under the gongbank keyword.
Feel free to mute me. Or listen along to my craziness.

I wanted to share this quick routine with you all. I’ve always dealt with acne. And part of what has given me great hesitation in pushing my brand and business forward has been a lack of confidence due to uncontrollable acne.
While I may have more flare ups in the future. I feel good knowing that I’ve finally learned a routine that helps me keep my face under control. This wont help everyone, but i know there IS someone out there this will be helpful for.
Have faith my friends. Share and comment below what you use for your face.
