I woke up this morning and wanted a Vanilla Black & Mild. Yes, me! See told you there was so much people assume about me (insert Joker laugh), but I digress.
I woke up with the taste of cigar vanilla in my mouth and actually thought to myself, “Hooky??” But after a long night and an even longer morning I knew I needed to go to work. But the thought of a good ole’ Black & Mild and a glass of Honey Hennessy and Cherry Coke sounded so much better than going to work and pushing paper.
Now don’t get me wrong, I love the ladies I work with and I am appreciative of my job. But recently I have become very disenchanted with what I am doing and where I am going. There is so much I wanted to accomplish by forty. Now again don’t get me wrong. I am proud of the what I have accomplished in these four decades. I just want to do so much more.
I am one of those people who know what they were called to do. I was placed here to help people and I do not really feel like I am doing that. You know that feeling you get when you are antsy and think it is time for a change and you start planning for that change…
My reality is that I start out doing awesome and make all the right moves. I get the interviews, I even get offered the job but then I begin thinking… what is this going to offer me that I am not recieving where I am now? Usually the answer is nothing so I stay. So instead I have decided to start my own businesses.
I am going back to my old Mary Kay days and am now an Independent Consultant with Paparazzi Accessories. There are so many great things about this company and the fact that I can make money in different ways it adds to my want to build my business. My company is called Beautimous & Blitz (B&B) Accessories, Inc. and I am loving it. Through my VIP Group and my Facebook Business Page I am doing well for my first month.
And since I have been consulting for years I am actually going to build my company up. Bridge2It™ Consulting is the happy marriage of my “calling” and my “hustle”. I consult, refer and train on social services and Juvenile Justice issues. I have an amazing network of people that surround me and Bridge2It™ allows me to refer people to organizations, companies, and agencies that can help them.
As I sit on my back porch because I didn’t go to work and drink a glass of Hennessy and Coke I strategizes on my next move. Build, build and build. And as I puff, puff, and puff on my Vanilla Black & Mild I can see the future I want for myself; through the vanilla flavored cloud I can see if all coming into view.
I need to go get some more Vanilla Black & Milds….they help me make moves…..
