I am all about spreading the word on programs and people I believe in.
The Atlanta Ascend 2020 program partners with nonprofit community lender Access to Capital for Entrepreneurs, Georgia Tech’s ATDC incubator, the Metro Atlanta Chamber of Commerce, and TechSquare Labs, providing an invaluable network for any entrepreneur just starting out.
A three-phase program, it allows education, pre-acceleration, and mentoring to help shape and lift minority-led startups by providing access to resources and networks that may be otherwise hidden.
When reading a blog, rarely do I care what makes you an expert. I do not research your validity, your background, college, current profession or name. It’s the topic Mr. Anderson…it’s what I Googled. It’s what returned. Where are these people searching for answers on your background on the internet?
It smells. It’s the taste. Your facts sound good, prestigious…I didn’t get past the third word in your bio. Keep it short, keep it factual, shrugs. Make it sound like music to my ears.
My phone doesn’t know who you are yet.
- Do you watch The Sopranos? Meadow is loosing her shit
- What is a question that makes you feel good?
- What year is The Sopranos set in?
- What does 4:44 mean?
Kids. There is never a situation I need to be around a child. My roommate has kids and his daughter asked me if I worked for her dad…doing what? What job would I possibly do here that required your dad to kick you out of your bedroom? I was watching a TLC commercial and the chick asked how would you tell identical twins apart and my first thought was to take a picture of the baby with its name written on it and hang it around its neck…that was my first thought.
Anywho, here is some music I liked yesterday. Enjoy your weekend!!
I am convinced I am in heaven!!
Yes, I know it is Monday and I don’t care. This late post is well worth it. The Weeknd came to town Saturday night and it was unbelievable. I said to myself this concert rivals her royal highness, Beyoncé. Yes, they are two different people in every sense of the word but The Weeknd’s concert was off the charts.
He opened with “Starboy” and from there it was on!! His energy filled up Phillips Arena and at one point it was so loud he had to motion to the crowd to bring it down a notch so he could be heard…it was like that!
6Lack, Belly and Rae Sremmurd joined The Weeknd on tour and we went nuts. I’m going to stop talking now and continue to live in the moment. You guys enjoy your week!!

I’m preheating the oven for some pasta I said I wasn’t going to eat. 8:17, I cut the oven off and laid on the floor and couldn’t stop thinking about tomorrow. Reflecting back on the last 364 days and what has happened:
- Moved out of the roommates mystery mansion.
- Moved in with a guy who told everyone I was his girlfriend and I played the role. Every minute was a low point. Moved out.
- Moved in with the sister. Money this. Rice on the floor that. Slept in the living room because the spare bedroom got turned into the garage because the garage was filled with non-rent paying junk. Moved out.
- Moved into my own place.
Now what. Everyday my head has so many thoughts and at this moment I’m looking for an answer to “is this ok?”
Trust the process. Tomorrow, somewhere around 10am, will be the anniversary of my retirement. To celebrate the momentous occasion I’m going to Topgolf. I hope it rains.
