This business rocks… @MochaWriter

One of the criteria for me to consider a business “rocking” is their desire to use their business not only to make a profit but to share their network with others and to make the business world a better place to work.  I know that may sound weird but what’s the point of building a powerful network just to use it for yourself or to try to pimp out your connections (you know, charging people for access to your connections)?

My friend, Jamie Fleming is the Owner of a copywriting service, Mocha Writer.  I feel comfortable referring her to clients because I trust the quality of her work.  Her process is so effortless.  We have completed several projects solely through email communication and I was 100% pleased with the quality of the finished project.

Writing copy for a website, newsletter or press release can be extremely time-consuming and often creatively challenging. To attain success, we have to learn how to work smarter, not harder.  Hiring a professional copywriter to join your team is solid investment.

This business rocks! S.H.E. Agency

I’ve written about what a great person I think Traci Smith is on a couple of previous occasions but today I want to share with you five (5) reasons I think her company, S.H.E. Agency rocks.

5.   SHE keeps me updated on the professional events in Montgomery.  Even though I don’t live in the city and rarely get out for socializing, Traci consistently provides information about events I find professional and interesting.

4.  SHE is a trendsetter.  I have had so many people, who don’t live in our area, ask what a Tweet and Greet is.  So far, Traci has hosted two events with a third planned for April.  At each event, I have the opportunity to network with people I tweet on an almost daily basis.  I was surprised at how few local tweople were in my network prior to attending the first Tweet and Greet.  Many of the people who I have met at the two events have become very good friends.

3.  SHE has a heart.  Traci uses her company to reach out and help others.  SHE has created two signature events that have the potential to change the lives of many young people.  “All Dolled Up” and “All Tied Up” were created for girls and boys, respectively, between the ages of 13 and 18.  The half day workshops teach life skills that are essential to the success of these future professionals as well as showing them how to tie scarves and ties.

2.  SHE is a sponsor of the I Want It All! Conference.  This is a shameless plug because anyone who has ever planned a major event knows that it takes a village to execute a one day event.  I am in the midst of planning four days of seminars, breakfasts, lunches, a brunch, networking event and a fashion show.  Having Traci and S.H.E. Agency on my team gives me comfort because she not the type of person to let you down, especially if her name is associated with the project.

1.  SHE understands quality over quantity.  I love the fact that SHE stays focused on what SHE does well and doesn’t try to be all over the road in an attempt to please everyone.  SHE has found her niche and I am excited to see what comes next.

Style. Hot. Energy.

Sebastian Kole discusses “Does society take sex seriously?”

In our highly sexualized society, we have to wonder… how seriously do we take seriously?

It can be argued that some people take sex too seriously and make life altering decisions based on carnal desires.  However, it can also be argued that many people don’t take sex serious enough and enter into physical relationships with little to no regard for the emotional attachment that will follow.  Join Sebastian Kole and I as we discuss this issue and how these schools of thought are contributing to society’s relationship trends.

Don’t forget… we want to hear from you.

About Sebastian Kole…

Sebastian Kole - Live From My Notebook

Singer-songwriter, Sebastian Kole,  was born and raised in Birmingham, AL. A trained jazz musician and vocal performer, Sebastian Kole began playing piano in the church and performing as a young child .At a very early age, he established his desire and destiny to sing and perform his own music: “I knew a long time ago I didn’t want to do cover music; singing and songwriting for me are pretty inseparable.” In fact, among his greatest influences in music are singer-songwriter musicians, particularly piano players such as Ray Charles, Stevie Wonder, Prince, John Legend, and Bilal. Also among his influences have been Beethoven, Bach, Handel, and Thelonius Monk, master musicians whom Sebastian Kole says were “never afraid of their own minds.”

Upon graduating with a degree in music, he recorded and released his self-titled album. Over the next few years, he toured Germany, France and Italy. He has performed his own music opening in concert for Monica, Raheem Devaughn, Anthony David, Julie Dexter and Musiq Soulchild and has shared the stage with fellow Birmingham grown artist Ruben Studdard. Sebastian Kole is set to release his next album “Live From My Notebook” in 2010, which features hit singles “Jaded” and “Before You Go.”

Sebastian Kole is an engaging storyteller with an uncanny ability to relate to people in his lyrics, music, and performance. He often sings of relationships which are a common human experience. Whether excess, or lack thereof, I try to look at them from a different perspective.” He also offers a unique perspective on music.

This business rocks… The L.o.v.e. Movement

Sometimes I have to pinch myself to be sure my life isn’t a dream.  Sure, I have problems, challenges, detours and obstacles just like everyone else but for the most part, I consider myself blessed and highly favored.

One of my blessings to have so many amazing women in my network.  I love boys just as much as any other girl but there is something special about the bond that women share.  It is even more special when we can come together to support, encourage and inspire one another.   I have the pleasure of being a member of several female online communities whose missions are focused on making sure those principles are a part of the daily lives of women around the world.

 

Join Shivawn for "Conversations on the Sofa"

Today is a special day for one of my friends, Shivawn Mitchell.  She is launching The L.o.v.e. Movement’s online network. I had the pleasure of hearing about her vision in May and since then I have watched her work hard to make her vision a reality.  This means even more because of her mission… she encourages women to not only have vision but to live it.  It is hard to describe what it’s like to see someone’s ideas go from words to something that you can see and participate in… to see them creating a product and continuing to tweak it until it is exactly what they had in mind.  Not many people have the stick-to-it-ness to make their dreams a reality because at the first sign of trouble, they give up or give in.  Shivawn is nothing like that and has done a wonderful job of translating her ideas into something that will be beneficial to everyone around her.

 

Some people may question the need for another women’s community but I don’t believe that we will ever have too many places for women to come together and celebrate on another.  Take a moment to check out the L.o.v.e. Movement… by the way LOVE means living out visions eternally…. and follow them on Twitter – @L_ovemove …. become a fan on Facebook and listen to their weekly Blog Talk Radio show, Maximized Lifestyle.

Is online flirting considered cheating?

How many times have you ended a text or online message with a wink ;)

How many times have you given the illusion of attraction to someone because it’s virtual, it’s not real?

How often do you type something that you would never say in person?

Are those actions considered cheating, if you are in a relationship?

Take the poll and share your comments.  I will tell you what I think next week….
