No. I said ……………….. TURN. UP.
Get it, baby!
Y’all, it’s my 1st birthday for You Are The Truth and I have the feels. ALL OF THE FEELS!
For the last year, I’ve committed to telling my Truth – my fears, my embarrassments, my triumphs, and my growth all in an effort to inspire and empower my readers. If one thing in my life is constant, it’s Change. Through YATT, i’ve been able to broadcast seasons of my life, and allow the world to bear witness to and support my growth. And with 18,000 views this year, I am overjoyed.
Another facet of YATT’s purpose is beyond my exposure and healing, but for yours. I may be the blabbermouth in my circles, but this has allowed me to see that we all share similar stories of fear, triumph, heartache, and ambition. By sharing my words, it is my wish that I share your own. Now with that said –
All I Want for My Birthday Is…..
In lieu of presents, there’s only one thing I’m asking of my readers, and that’s Opportunity. Give me a chance, and i’ll show out. #Donbeeleemejuswach. I only have 3 things on my list, and this is how I need your help::
I want to Write.
I’m committed to this, as you see. But i’ve also been writing since I was in 5th grade (I have the journals to prove it). If you know someone who needs a writer…and has a budget…please share this blog and let them know that i’m ready.
I want to Consult.
I started a communications consulting business last year, named BeCreative.C, focusing on Marketing & Social Media, and this is my full-time gig! I’m a start-up, and this month i’ll begin teaching social media to the residents of a local senior center! If you know of an existing or new business in need of Marketing support or social media training, send them to me! Check out the website here.
I want to Model.
Modeling began as my hobby and grew into a professional pursuit last year. I have an Atlanta-based agent, and if you or anyone you know needs a fashion/commercial model or actress for an upcoming project, please link us!
Aaaand Thank You
Thank you for every read, tweet, comment, share, and direct message in support of my work. Thank you for giggling and blushing over my words with your friends, because you can’t believe that I really said that (and because you did the same thing back in ’09). Thank you for asking me about what I write, for sharing your words as guest authors. Thank you to Luvvie for being my blogger idol and for gassing me up (i.e. recognizing me by sharing my article) early on in my journey. Thank you to my ex, Pierre, for loving me real hard for like 15 seconds and going ghost…it hurt like hell, but I got one bad-ass launch article out of it, so yeah. I still drink red wine and listen to that Beyonce album weekly…so it was a worthy 15 seconds.
