7BLOGGERDAYS: JAN11 Favorite Moment

One of my most favorite moments is when I decided to start my own business!

I was hesitant to do so in such a trying economic time…but one day, while on a brief medical leave from my job, I formulated my plan! I also recall being selected for jury duty, and thinking to myself “there is a chance that I will NOT get called; let me take my notebook and write out some ideas”…and that’s exactly what I did! I did not get called that day for duty, so I spent a FULL 6 or so hours writing out my vision for my company.

Well, I’m coming up on a ONE YEAR of being an entrepreneur, and it feels great! I woke up this morning to an email from someone soliciting me for their brands, plus emails from clients updating me on things that they need…that instantly made me smile. I LOVE what I do, and I am grateful that I did not let the financial hardships of the world cut into my dreams! Once I got over my initially hesitancy, I discovered that everything needed to “Just Do It” was on the inside!!

I am a better woman for staying focused on my goals! I challenge you to do the same!

Sunday Morning!

It’s Sunday morning. I don’t know about anyone else, but this is one of the most PEACEFUL days of my life.

I can count on the beauty of a quiet ride to Starbucks (Sunday morning routine is to get my Daddy breakfast and my coffee), and just to be alone w my thoughts of praise.

These past few weeks have been trying, traumatic, troubling yet triumphant. God won’t allow me to lose, because He created me in His own image…a winning image. I smile w the peace of God covering me and my loved ones, and I’m ever so grateful for His grace and mercy. He constantly stands up inside of me, when I’m at my weakest…and His arms have never been closed to me…that’s why I praise Him; because He’s already done enough! If He NEVERRRRRRR does another thing for me, I have 34–almost 35–yrs worth of blessings. I could be dead, on drugs, unemployed, transportation-less, homeless, hungry, poor, UNLOVED, alone…but I’m the opposite of ALL of those things. I have TOO MUCH to thank God for…

Spiritually Maturing w Every Keystroke,

Who's Jared Pugh?

So…who IS Jared Pugh?

Well…Jared is “J-Breeze”; the next Hop Hop phenomena, right out of Chicago, IL. Oh…he’s most certainly a factor…keep reading…

Jared is a 20yr old senior at Southern Illinois University (Carbondale), who just dropped his debut mixtape on May 8, 2012 entitled “1 Man Variety Show”. Being only 20, and writing raps since the age of 15, his sound and style is yet beyond his years. Listening to his lyrics, you can immediately sense that he is completely driven by music. He’s not just about sound though…some of his favorites? The late Tupac Shakur, Kanye West, and Outkast…just to name a few. And if you are familiar w the above mentioned artists, you understand that these artists have depth to their lyrics, as well as a hypnotizing sound. J-Breeze is no different.

This humble artist has made a conscious decision to pursue his dreams, and honor his gifts. People were surprised to know that J-Breeze (also a full time comedian) even knew how to rap…talk about a jewel…

Taking it a step further, his production team is just as amazing as the artist himself. “Super Producer” Matcy P is noted w gaining industry credits from the likes of Rich Boy, Erk The Jerk, Da Kidd and a host of others; word of mouth flew through the Midwest and IL college circuits rapidly by the widely respected and immensely talented DJ Commando; the men behind the execution of the innovative sound and delivery, the “Super Engineers” Jeff Jackson (Classick Studios), QG-BO (Bully Music), and Leek Loki (BoUlevards), and more, all played a major role in what you are about to experience after you’ve read this information…did I mention that J-Breeze is ONLY 20?

There is much more to be discovered about Jared, however in an effort to gain a little knowledge about how his mind works, you need to cop the 1 Man Variety show at:

Restaurant Review-Corner Bakery Café

I am a foodie (a size four foodie at that), and a true weakness of mine? BREAD!! I tell you what…Cornery Bakery Café never disappoints on the croissants. They also have sandwiches (I.e. ham, roast beef, chicken salad), a wide variety of other entrees, pastries, desserts, etc., but I’m stuck on their delicious croissants!

If ever you are near a Corner Bakery, STOP IN!

And later I’m headed out for a Slurpee!!

Today has been amazing! I was able to personally put a smile on someone’s face today, and that’s all I care about! Smooth Sunday!!
