Excerpt from My New E-Book! #thelittleBLACKbook

Under the stars I’ve been working on my 1st E-book named, “The Young Professional’s Little Black Book”. I’ve tailored the image around “The little black book” but with a professional sweet and spice to it. It’s my words, my language, my way of getting the job done.

I’m putting together EVERYTHING I’ve learned and experienced as a playbook for you! Here’s a piece of it:

“The moment you understand that your future will sink or soar ONLY on your account, you will find no need to suck up to anyone, clutch contacts, or go for every internship and opportunity that looks good on paper.

I see so many young professionals doing that and I can’t do nothing but smh and laugh. People cut corners, betray friends, and drag people’s names in the dirt thinking they’re going to get ahead, when in all reality, EVERY LIVING THING you exert out of your mouth will return to you in many forms. People have no control over your future, but YOU. If you are confident and are sure in your talent, skill, and future, you shouldn’t give two shits if someone hires/likes/befriends you or not. Because things will fall into place and in your order when ready.

Be clear-cut in who you are, what you want, and in the things you are intended to accomplish.

Do not barter, exchange or trade those things for anyone, thing, or opportunity. Let the universe work its magic in lining up the stars for you. Time never stays the same. Someone’s outro will be your intro.

Treat others as you would like them to treat you. Work your ass off perfecting your trade and talent(s). Learn new things, and approach each situation as you know NOTHING–be the surprise. As much as I know and have experienced, in a room FULL of talent, I sit quietly. 2 to 1 chances the ego will get the best of everyone so I just watch, with a smile of course. Be the devil and the advocate. The angels, the heaven, the moon, and the stars. While everyone’s distracted, you’ll be watching the universe.

You’re only mission on this earth should be is to make those people who said “no” to you, have that stupid look on their face when they see you doing ya thing. I had it happen many of times and it’s the most rewarding feeling on the planet.


This is a karmic world. Treat it well, and it will treat you better!

Everything I’ve said takes practice – practice – practice. Unlearn what you’ve learned and begin with a fresh late.

| The Young Professional’s Little Black Book – It’s Anyone’s Game.

I’m excited about it! It’s been a great way to release my energy and expertise. I think the information is highly needed and I will probably be gifting a copy to every senior intended to walk the stage in my area when released.
The name is set to be officiated hopefully soon or knowing me it may change, and launching sometime in 2015. I hope you found the information both intriguing and insightful! 🙂
