Don’t be sorry
Oh Lupita how I love thee…It has been almost a year and a half since going natural. It has truly been a journey. I have met so many people and learned so much about myself, lets not forget learning how to truly take care of my hair. I recently came across this video clip featuring Oscar winner Lupita Nyongo. Her beauty is undeniable and she is a naturalista! It was only right that I share
Its the end ofbthe week so I caught up on some facebook surfing and came across a post about a new webseries on youtube called “First” by Issa Rae. For those who have seen the classic move Love Jones this has been deemed the modern day version. I saw the first episode and I am ready for episode number 2.
I am all about building my brand. I have an interest in many things and want to be know for being apart of just more than one thing. Like most of my friends I have a day job. During the day I am an HR Assistant for an investment management firm, but outside of work I also have my own virtual assistant business called CMC Virtual Assistance catered to providing virtual office support to those in fashion and entertainment but I am now a merchandiser for Chloe & Isabel, a lifestyle brand which primarily sells beautiful jewelry. I decided to take on this new business venture because I always wanted to have something of my own plus I love jewelry. I am anxiously awaiting my starter kit. I will admit that I am somewhat nervous but that is all apart of the journey.

On days like today I find myself on youtube looking at videos. One of the Youtube channels I casually view is Jermaine Dupri’s youtube channel where he post a lot of videos for his clips “living the life.” These videos bascially are a behind the scenes look at various points of his life. As a famous celebrity he is working with some of today’s more famous celebrities. In this particular clip Jermaine is in the studio with R& B singer Monica. They begin to have a conversation about blended families and how she makes it work (Monica has two children from a previous relationship and currently pregnant with her husband, NBA player Shannon Brown). I found this conversation interesting because I completely relate to Monica’s beliefs and understanding as it relates to being in a relationship. I personally do not feel the need to entertain drama within a relationship. Why argue?
Neo Soul is my favorite genre of music. Its such a laid-back lazy Saturday type of vibe it simply puts a smile on my face, so to hear that Amel Larrieux is coming out with a new album I had to go on the hunt…Enjoy!
I have been biten by the entrepreneur bug and in the works to start my own Virtual Assistant business. Right now I am looking to have this business venture on the side and see how it develops. I have come across several people lately who have just created their own businesses and are excited to get started on this journey. Of course I have been reading up on the requirements as well as the Virtual Assistant industry. I never like to feel underprepared for anything so research has been my focus.
There is so much thought that goes into starting your own business. My first task is completing my business plan. This plan is the blueprint to everything I do moving forward. Next is my website which I have already brought the domain name (Yay!) and working to develop. Business cards, brochures, flyers, everything related to marketing is another tasks I have to achieve and let us not forget the social media piece.
Starting my own VA business means becoming certified in this particular area of business. The International Virtual Assistants Association is the premier VA association for virtual assistants, and those looking for a VA.
I look forward to see where this new adventure goes. Stay tuned. Fall 2013!
