The Sway, Hive Tour and How to Get Involved

Just a little bit more about the #HiveTour here and fill you guys in and see what you think and who is down to share and support us on this quest.

Since I started with my Ktown brand my primary focus has been independent arts and entrepreneurs. There are so many amazing people I have met here in Jacksonville, FL with talent that deserves to be seen, heard and more. I have spent a lot of time hosting indie shows, vendor events and more hoping to help with their exposure all while building a name for myself. I blog here and there, go live from shows and love to just have fun with it all.

About 2 years ago my husband and I started dating and everyone fell in love with us as a couple and asked for us to do a joint project together. We are often invited out to various concerts, festivals and so much more so we came up with The Sway (meaning: The Kingdom) as an idea for covering events while we are out and about. Often times we will go live from events and of course post pics and videos as well. We want to do more though and we want to start right here in Jacksonville, FL, take it on the road and then back here to Duval where we want to open our own business (more on that in a later blog).

For now though let's discuss this show a little more and the tour. We'd like to grow The Sway into a monthly talk show, with various segments on life, art, entrepreneurship, mentoring and community outreach. We have various contributors from all over to bring you talent, techniques and more from bloggers, teachers, small business owners and various professionals across the country. We want to bring them on to highlight the talent we have across this beautiful and diverse country.

With no concrete time set in place (yet!) the next step would be to take it on the road. We are creating a business plan to buy an old school bus or RV and convert it into a mobile home/studio. This would take us on the scene to events, we can bring artists on-board for interviews, chefs to whip up some meals and become a moving mural created by artists everywhere as we head cross country to spotlight creative types, entrepreneurs and more across the states while still having contributors send in their updates as well.

We know you want to support indie, find out about different new projects and more so that's what we'll be here to do! You can be in Colorado supporting a Musician in Virginia or in Cali buying food from a Florida Chef, and in Maine hanging up art from a Texan. It's all about love, support and looking for ways to connect us humans through our passions. We want to be honeybees (there will always be references towards bees) dripping a little bit of sweet new things to you all on a regular basis and helping improve communities and connections all over.

We will be looking to feature/highlight in the following areas over the next few months:

Artists (All types-music, paint, photo, etc.)
Chefs (They make art too!)
Small Business Owners
Mentoring Program Directors & Mentors
Art Program Directors
Event Hosts/Bloggers/Personalities
Models & Actors

Don't see your skill listed but think you can contribute? Still please reach out!

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…

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 sch…

Rebirth

Time for me to put up one of the most honest and realest blogs you have ever seen from me. Since my break up at the end of 2011 I really haven't discussed it. I closed the door, shoved it under the rug and just kept my fingers crossed that every time I went out no one would ask me where 'he' was. I am sitting here looking at the last year. The things that have changed and decided it was time to write this...

In that relationship we had it all planned out: goals, dreams, cars, kids, marriage and more. I thought I had met the man that I was going to spend the rest of my life with and I started living just that way. As though this was my husband and he was going to be at my side through it all, no matter what...

WRONG.

Life isn't that easy.. I should have known that but my happiness and desire for a real committed relationship clouded my decisions at the time. I won't discuss the details of  the break up or intimate details of the relationship but I will say it was …
