7BLOGGERDAYS: JAN12: Your favorite part of a really good movie and what you learned from it

My favorite part of the “TV show” Good Times is when Florida was dead set on fixing Wilona up w a man, thinking that her being in a relationship would “complete her”.

What I learned from that particular episode is that some ppl will judge you based off of what you DON’T have and thinking that if they push you in a direction of their choosing, you will be better off. That’s so far from the truth! But the best part of that episode is the fact that Wilona let Florida know that she was fine/content w who SHE was…only Wilona can decide when she will enter into a relationship, and not on anyone else’s clock! Being true to YOU will bring confidence!

Whether it’s relationships, going back to school, quitting a job, or buying a home…what do YOU say about all of this? It’s your call on YOUR life!

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!

Just WRITE!

Do you have any idea how FREEING that is??

You can be as ANGRY as you want to be on paper…and at times, that helps you to get out those “loose” emotions…you know, the things you probably would regret actually “saying” to someone…

Try this 7BloggerDays list that I created, in an effort to get more of you writing. It doesn’t have to be a dissertation; it could be all pictures if you’d like! Just make sure you say SOMETHING!

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:

Confession

FYI: I absolutely hate my “job”…the thing I’m using to pay bills only. And because I hate it sooooo much, I had to do something about it!

I formed PRbyELLE77 as a means to get me out of the rut of a “job”. I now have a career! I’m an entrepreneur who is, unfortunately, still employed w a going-nowhere position, that I have no desire to keep. There have been days where quitting was on the table even before I made it in. My peace of mind from “9-5” isn’t at all a resemblance of peace…please. The clock while at that place is my enemy…time just never moves fast enough.

I have been praying on a solution, searching for something better–something I would actually enjoy going to–and something that goes along the lines of what I currently do! Economy is low, right along w the number of available careers, so creating my own had to win over all else. What’s so CRAZY is…I love the people that I work with; I just absolutely hate the JOB. Grateful to be able to pay my bills…just praying for another avenue to pay said bills. Luckily I don’t have credit card debt or student loans, so I’m glad of that.

My confession will conclude like so: I will not sulk daily about the hatred for that place, but I will continue to grow and expand PRbyELLE77, and I will continue to use my gifts to get me to where I know I am of better use. I feel like a robot at the “job”; I feel needed in my career!

Take a leap of faith! Hell, my NEXT confession may be one that will surprise even ME!
