Advantage

My life has always been lived for others... I support this person, parent another, promote for one and advise 2 more... I'm not saying I don't look out for myself, I'm saying I put my needs and wants on the back burner way too often...

I'm a strong intelligent female and it seems I'm always playing second fiddle to someone else.. is this my fault or my destiny? It's nothing I've really noticed until this very point. I always talk about you can't do for noone else unless you do for yourself and I'm not fully living that philosophy!!! Talk about an eye opener... people know me but only by connecting the dots. I'm trying to build an Empire and that ain't happening if I don't start pushing myself even more and stop taking the bull ish others toss my way...

I've been in music quite a few years and let me tell u all, this ish ain't easy. People lie, cheat, scam and more... the stories I've seen and heard should he in a book somewhere. Maybe one day down the road my memoirs will be a great read.

Every project I enter is out of love for music and the desire to see those I love excel, AND be a part of something I love and enjoy. I've met so many awesome people along the way, including my amazing man, that I don't regret one single think that's happened. I just now know that I have to select projects that are well run and organized to be a part of or just run things my own way. Like I said earlier, I gotta do me or I'm no good to anyone else and I appreciate all that support me!

So my advise to anyone reading this is APPRECIATE those that have your back and never take them for granted.. even the biggest supporter will stop being there when all you don't realize everything they do....

  1. Totally awesomeness! You know I feel you on a lot of that! But just nod, smile, and keep your chin up. You are fabulous girl and just keep focus on the things you need to accomplish, starting with yourself first so you can radiate that positive drive you have!

  3. Jimmy and I always say we should write a book about what local bands go through. You get ripped off or screwed over and then ya have to just smile and walk away. We've realized that we're too nice and end up getting taken advantage of bc people think "oh they won't get mad so we'll just screw them over". But then again do we want to be known as the a-holes? Case in point; they messed up the bookings for the local radio show this week. We booked Wednesday but they have us on the schedule for Tuesday. Ok, so I text them and admit they messed up and cancel the other band but they left the event on reverbnation and facebook wrong so they aren't promoting us for the right day. I've messaged them twice and it's still not fixed. And then you could get me going about how venues expect you to do all the promoting and advertising for shows and don't raise a finger or spend a penny to even let people know they have entertainment! But I'll get off my soapbox, it's your blog.

Gluten-Free on I-95

I love traveling.. road trips, flying and even by boat. I just love to go. I didn't travel a lot as a kid.. Until I was 10 the only states I'd been to were my home state of Virginia, Maryland, Delaware, West Virginia and Washington DC. By the time I'd graduated I had added North Carolina and Kentucky. I live in Florida now but my first time here was in 2002 and at 38 years of age I have only added South Carolina, Georgia, Texas, New York (airport only) and Connecticut to the list as well as The Bahamas (Freeport) and Cuba. I still have a million places I want to go.. Now though it's all a bit trickier because of my allergies.. I have been diagnosed as allergic to gluten, cats, pine trees and a few other things. I seem to have reactions to other things and need to be tested for more in addition to other health issues I have that food can complicate. This makes traveling HARD. I have to be careful at every place I go.. eating at events is completely out of the qu

Lost Dreams

It's 2011, times are tough and everyone is out here grinding to get to the top... So many have lost their jobs due to the recession and have to take jobs doing whatever comes their way just to have food on the table and a roof over their head. Not many really want to flip burgers or work the local department store register but if you want to survive we do what we have to do. It's how the country works... if there was noone flipping burgers, where would we get our food? What does this have to do with dreams? well a lot.... As a child one of the questions we are asked most often is what do you want to be when you grow up? Some ponder this and reply with whatever their mommy or daddy does, others reply doctor or fireman, some just don't know. We are told we can do anything! We can concure the world if we work hard, pay attention and try.. then real world hits... you gradute school and have more bills than zeros on your check, you get pregnant, or hurt yourself and lose a s

Good Vibes Galaxy & Audio Blogging

As someone who has been blogging on and off for years as well as hosting, recording voicework for commercials and so much more I started thinking about this blog and how nice it would be to have an audio version to accompany the words that I write. I love to write but I also love to talk and I know not everyone has time to sit down and read ALL the blogs that their friends write or even those of the people they follow but almost all of us have time to push play and listen while we move on about our lives. When I started looking into how to make this happen there were so many options available to me but none were just a simple add audio to your blog so I decided to make it work for me in the best way for me. I will be using both my blog site as well as my YouTube to make this work. Each time I write a new blog I will also be recording an audio "podcast" of the blog and posting it to my YouTube channel. The blog will have the video embedded and that gives you all the choice as
