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.
If you happen to use this video drop a comment below about why you found it helpful.
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.
I’ve declared that I’m working to support my audience in sharing their voice. That audience is 20 – 40 year old creatives, entrepreneurs, and activists. I’m happy to be moving to a place of helping people where they are, and hopefully giving them the tools for their own personal exploration and discovery.
There is an immense need to have voice and representation of people like YOU for people like YOU to consume and connect with. If you’ve ever thought about sharing your voice. Consider starting a blog. You can posts your thoughts, youtubes, pictures, videos, podcasts, almost anything on your personal space.
Contribute to the new voices that are coming out and making impacts within our community!
If you do start a blog. shoot me your name. I’ll follow you and definitely support your efforts.

*Another facebook snatch, thank you to whoever I got this from*
Elijah’s classmates only wanted better for themselves and their families. What happened to paying it forward, and giving back?
There are no role models in their neighborhoods right now. All of the “successful” people leave the community and never return. They’re taught to leave the community.
When will be begin to combat the selfishnesses WE ALL have been taught and unconsciously display?
What is the common thread between Mother Theresa, Ghandi, and MLK Jr?
They all had an extreme love for people and fought for them even when they didn’t want their help.
Allow our students/mentees/family/friends to be angry, BUT direct their anger to the fact that someone taught them it was ok to behave like that (hurting other people). Direct their anger to the fact that someone taught them that its ok to think that it’s every man for themselves.
The people that put them (us) down, were put down. The people that hurt them (us), were hurt. When are we (you) going to take personal responsibility to change this?
I’ma change that! You need to too!
Teachers, instead of making sellouts, we need to realize that we’re the main people who can change the community, by building its leaders. Yes academically, but more-so spiritually, socially, and emotionally.
The world doesnt have to be every (wo)man for themselves. We can have everyone fighting together and set on one goal. That goal is to make our communities better for the people coming up after us.
Teachers job is of extreme importance. Are you sure you know and are pushing for the full scope?
It’s bigger than me, it’s not about me. But I can change that.
I believe in you
And don’t give up
