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.

My Mother's Day Nightmare

May 13, 2018.. Mother's Day.

I worked an event.. I am always working.. helping coordinate a yearly brunch for my friend Chef X I was gone from about 8am until we got home about 6pm. I had been in communication with the two kids still at home throughout the day. They are 14 and 15.. generally mature and great at keeping in touch with me. Until 7pm that evening. Then 2 and a half hours went by where we had absolutely no idea where my daughter was. 14 years old and it was all silence. More than a few minutes is already scary, this was unlike ever before.

I am a mother to five, yes five, amazing kids. They are far from perfect, but I was far from a perfect parent, we managed. Being in the arts and entertainment industry there is sometimes a fine line between what is private and what I talk about. Most of the time though I know I am not alone. I know there are other moms, parents, loved ones who are experiencing some of the things I go through and talking about it helps. It helps me ge…

Turning 21, Disney and a Girls Trip We Won't Forget

I just got back from a five day vacation to Orlando... While there is so much about this trip we will keep to ourselves because it was all so special I did want to briefly talk about it as a whole.

About six months ago my best friend in Virginia hit me up. Her oldest daughter was turning 21 in July and she really wanted to do something special for her. My oldest had just turned 21, who also happens to be her Goddaughter, and our girls had known each other since birth as we were there for the birth of each other's firstborns. Her idea was to come down to Orlando, stay at a nice resort or hotel and have the four of us hang out a few days at the pool, maybe a bar or two and hit up an amusement park.

This sounded amazing and it was before the car accident my youngest was in, as well as a few other things to recently hit our family. When the accident happened she asked me if we should cancel. I asked her please not to, I knew by the time it came around I was really going to need a few …

Hello March...

Just thought I should jump on and write an update blog..



We moved into a new apartment in December and things have been a little hectic since. We absolutely LOVE the community and we know the new company is doing amazing things to improve the property but due to our apartment being an older one and on the bottom floor, there have been some issues.. I won't get into things in depth but we're looking for them to relocate our apartment as I write this so hopefully it all improves soon. That being said we have been crazy busy and dealing with a lot as a result, including having to stay in a hotel briefly.

The best news from the last few months- Kaliyah is done with physical therapy! She broke her neck in May 2018 and finished up with her PT in February 2019. She pushes herself so hard, goes to the gym on her own and has really shown some amazing growth, even starting her own YouTube channel! It's so funny to watch your kids do things and see little pieces of yourself in it. Pl…
