Golden Globes Precious Mania Begins

Kim Porter and Sean Combs twin daughters D’lila Star and Jessie James are my god babies and I love those little girls so much. They are truly angels that love unconditionally. Kim is a great mom and a great friend. We have known each other since my days growing up in Atlanta Georgia where I attended Lakeshore High school along with the distinguished Pastor Creflo Dollar. Whenever I am in LA I visit Kim and the girls at her beautiful new estate which her friends have dubbed “Pretty Peach Palace”. So during my first jaunt to LA for the new year I stayed at the palace and really enjoyed spending quite time with the girls. I read them their favorite book the “Doobies” which was created by my friend NV Magazine owner Kyle Donovan. The Doobee’s uses bees to teach kids that they can be whatever they want to bee!

I attended the Lionsgate party at the Beverly Hills hotel for the movie Precious which is a film that I support and was very much apart of that was produced and directed by Lee Daniels who I produced my first 2 films “The Woodsman” and “Shadowboxer” with. Precious is a adapation from the book “Push” written by Sapphire. After she saw the movie Shadowboxer she decided to allow Lee who had previously expressed interest in the book the right to turn the book into a film trusting him after many others had approached her over the years for the rights to do the same only for her to refuse.

It’s a New Season, It’s a New Day!

A FRESH ANNOINTING IS HEADED MY WAY! It’s a season of power and prosperity it’s a new season coming to me! This year like most in my life will be yet another busy one. Why? Because I don’t wait for opportunities to come my way I create them. I read, study and submerge myself in and around the culture of Branding and PR one that I have chosen to study until I master and even them I will strive to learn more. The most important aspect of being a brand strategist is my ability to first identify what is lacking and then create a blueprint that will create the components necessary to accelerate the clients positioning. The DNA of each brand is unique therefore the need to craft strategies specific to that brand will always be necessary for it to grow. Simply said there will always be the need for a strategist to help a client reach their desired positioning. Even in light of the economy and the state of emergency we have found the field of PR there will still be a need and a desire to seek out seasoned strategist. So I spend my holiday vacation conceiving new strategies and ideation that will be woven into the fabric of every client’s brand this year. The anticipation of a new season always overwhelmes me as I can never wait to unveil the creative energy I have stored and crafted and can’t wait to apply.
