Until Today!: Daily Devotions for Spiritual Growth and Mind by Iyanla Vanzant has been my A.M. reading for much of 2008 (Thanks, Sis). Having followed much of her career in print and on television, her "IT FACTOR" never before stood out to me; even to the point of passing up free and paid chance to see her in person. Timing really is everything!

"Game can only be gotten by one who can get it."



eye quit
at the same time eye acquit
for charges accrued during
this amazing relationship
sharp nit-pick wit resonates
mostly hate, rare elation
please accept this measly poem
as sufficient resignation

With all of the music-related reality shows, there is no excuse for anyone trying to break into the business to be ignorant about "a day in the life". Even with the scripted scenes & editing, thick game is coming from the industry vets turned actors. Watching these shows (free online), has really helped me examine my own strengths & weaknesses as both an artist & executive. Twenty minute weekly tutorials in how to consistently step my game up can only serve me well. In order to maximize my gain, eye don't buy into the drama with the characters much, but watch the movers that really count - the moguls & henchmen. It's not all about the entertainment, but the edutainment. Try it, you might like it! For starters (in no particular order):
