Elevate

“Elevate, elevate…Only obligation is to tell it straight…So much on my plate I gotta delegate. Who else is jamming to Drake’s Scorpion Album? I definitely think it’s the album of the summer.

Elevate has always been my mood but recently more so now than in the past. I recently got to work with Karleen Roy of The Vanity Group. She produced several activations for the Essence Music Festival. It’s funny because over the years I would apply and apply for the jobs with the company Essence hired to produce the festival. I would snag an interview but never land the job. This year I got to be in the room with some of the people that hired that same company. That’s even more ammunition for me to keep going.

Throughout the weekend I got to be in the presence so many movers and shakers..I’m talking millionaires. I left each day with more encouragement and more confirmation that I was on the right path.

As you elevate there are going to be people around you who don’t understand and that’s okay. Those are the people that can’t come with you on your journey. I am no longer feeling guilty about elevating. No longer wishing for support. I am no longer sparing feelings. I just don’t have it in me.

Those who are not for you will show themselves sooner than later and when they exit, count it as a blessing. There were so many jewels that were dropped during the weekend and I thought I would leave you with some:

“Eliminate Negative People…You Can Always Keep them in Prayer but not in Person”.

“Be Picky About Your Circle…Take Note of the Friends that want to Co-Sign instead of being apart of the Original Investment”.

  1. Great post Jazz! I’ve learned over the years that 90% of the people I’m around are not really in my corner or don’t understand my motives. And that’s okay. My journey is only for me!!
