And those who may potentially follow my site, page, or whatever you want to call it here. I just know I like it here and its better and more liberating than facebook.lol
Anyway, I know there are a lot of writers on this platform. I see some of your pages and just wish I could be half as good as you. However, I’m totally secure in my own gift, so I don’t tear down, I admire. I’ve learned from some of you all. I appreciate your creativity.
However, I’m not sure if any or all of you have written books about your lives. It’s really none of my business whether you have or haven’t but what I’m really getting at is I have a group in bookface….. Well that’s what my late, great Aintie us to call it. But on Facebook, I have a group called Write Your Life.
If you’ve been following me, you can see I have a video describing it.
Well I’m here to announce the group is up live and I’m encouraging folks over 30 to reflect, take time to be present, and write there life stories.
I have a 52 week system that’s complete with assignments, encouragements, and my own experiences to help guide potential authors and give them the courage to finally get down to the mystery of knowing who the hell they are.
You do know your a spiritual beings having a earthly experience right? Ever want to find out what makes you tick? Ever want to pinpoint what sends you to ecstasy but because you really don’t know how you got there, its a mystery to do it by command.
You ever fly off the handle and get pissed and after you really think about your actions, you say to yourself, it really wasn’t that serious. While at the same time, wondering if it really wasn’t that serious, WHY DID I TAKE IT THERE IN THE FIRST PLACE?
I found out a lot about myself writing my first book. I’m looking for folks who have never written a book before that has things that they want to get off there chest.
I’m looking for folks who want to find themselves and participate in a project that can change there lives.
I’m a coach who wants to help individuals Write There Life. Should I use eir or ere…… Anyway, I got a group. It’s called Write Your Life. I want to help first time authors and encourage them that the best therapy outside of seeing a real therapist is writing and journaling. Also meditating but that’s another discussion for another day.
I want folks to hold a book in there hands that they wrote and said “I DID THIS” and be proud. I want to help folks make there lives better.
Come on and join me and us. Week One Assignment is Sunday July, 18 at 10am. I’d love to see you there. Even if you’d already written your first book about your own life, maybe you can help me with encouraging the folks that’s joining my group. IT WILL BE A PRIVATE GROUP for obvious reasons.
If they’re any grammatical errors or weird mistakes in this post, correct me in the comments. Also, I’ve always had a challenge with there and their. Who here can help me!!!! Comment on that too.lol
It gets piled on you from the beginning of your life. Thoughts, fears, and limitations of others.
Most of our lives we spend it mimicking the styles, personalities, and habits of those closest to us.
Then we reach our 30’s and 40’s and are completely stumped on who we are and what we want.
We find that we’re prisoners of our own lives. We want to do something about it and so overwhelmed with life as we know it, we get discouraged and give in.
When this is happening or you may know someone that this is happening to, sometimes you have to sit down with yourself or sit the individual down who’s suffering, look them in the eyes, remind them of all that they have accomplished in there lives to truly be grateful for and most importantly WHO THE FUCK THEY ARE!!!
A shark who roams the ocean who has forgotten his killer instinct is….Food.
In the midst of going through life masquerading in the limitations of others, you had clear flashes of who you are.
And guess what, the ones you would never expect, also saw those flashes. They’ve gained respect and love and admiration for you secretly that you didn’t have a clue about.
Then one day the situation arises when that power that sent you here finally affirms to you what you’ve known along but never had the courage to embrace. That you are someone with a purpose, identity, gifts, and a lane that no one can fill but YOU.
Today I’m telling you to get in that mirror and you stay there until you find and remember WHO THE FUCK YOU ARE.
The choice is simple. Be the shark or be the food.
Greetings!!! I’m here to help and encourage you to do the one thing everyone should do before they leave this earth. WRITE YOUR LIFE!
Yes. You can do it. If I could do it you can too. Its not as hard as you think. Watch the video below, go to Facebook and join my brand new group, WRITE YOUR LIFE and in the words of MC Hammer………. LET’S GET IT STARTED!!!
On February 5, 2018, I put my flag up. After researching, studying, and digging I finally came to a conclusion that would change my being as a spiritual individual forever.
I was a Christian. When I was a young man between the ages of 17-20 I preached. I was even ordained.
Around 2017, I began to have questions that weren’t getting answered. That bothered me. I was searching for who I was as this spiritual being. It seemed like there was pieces of myself that was missing and I wanted to find out what it was that not just made me, but black folks in general think as we do as it pertains to our beliefs in God.
It seemed like no one from my home church had a clue to who black folks were praying to before slavery. I was curious about that. It seemed like a more than fair question.
My searching lead me to ancient Kemet(Egypt). That’s where you can find the beginning of many spiritual practices, mythologies, and allegories that shapes religion and how we see it today.
I got frustrated at individuals who I went to for guidance and they would tell me in an almost patronizing way that I just needed faith and that I shouldn’t question God.
Funny thing is I wasn’t questioning God, I was questioning the book. Some things just didn’t make sense. One day right before I made this video I was sitting and thinking about all the people who have come and gone on earth.
All the souls who lived and died on earth who because of time, in some cases cultural backgrounds, geography, and religious beliefs, never heard of the name by which mankind could be saved.
Saved from what? Saved from sin and saved from a burning, eternal hell because of sin. As the bible says, no one can escape hell unless they repent and accept Jesus Christ as there lord and savior.
This was puzzling to me because there are billions upon billions of people who have never even heard of Jesus, the bible, sin, or even some destination called hell that souls had to be saved from.
If you break the bible down to the bare essence, its basically saying worship Jesus or go to hell. Yes, there are a lot of great lessons and stories in the bible. Incredible wisdom that can be applied to our lives to make it better.
In general, proverbs and psalms have many words to help a person in various ways. There are a lot of positive things in those 66 books. However, to say its perfect, I say no. If this is the perfect word of God why doesn’t it cover the whole of humanity.
In fact, if God gave us something that could save us from eternal damnation(That something supposedly is this bible), why doesn’t everyone have access to it. Or to be even more spiritually scientific if that’s even a thing, why isn’t Jesus embedded in every souls DNA from birth.
If Gods plan is that no soul is lost, why are Billions of people being born on earth now, and who have been born through out the beginning of this world and have no idea who Jesus is. All those souls will burn forever? Forever ever!!!!
Anyway, after going back and forth on social media with church members and other Christians, and even viewing a sermon where it looked like I was being condemned for simply changing my mind and taking responsibility for myself spiritually, I couldn’t take it anymore. So here was my response.
Dear Boxers, promoters, sanctioning bodies, athletic commissions, networks, referees, and ring card girls.
It’s astonishing that you folks who are actually in the industry of promoting and participating in the sport I dearly love, the sweet science known as boxing, have forgotten that if the fans don’t show up to support you, you don’t get paid.
I don’t give a rats ass if your name is Floyd Mayweather, Bob Arum, Al Haymon, or if you work for Showtime or DAZN. Your entire existence is based on satisfying the fans. It’s called prize fighting for a reason.
Basic supply and demand. You supply your talents for a fee because the fans demand the type of entertainment that pits two human beings against one another in a fair fight.
If there were a huge fight card where the Main Event is Anthony Joshua versus Tyson Fury for the Undisputed Heavyweight Championship Of The World, and the undercard has Canelo Alvarez versus Triple G, with the opener being Terrance Crawford Versus Errol Spence at Cowboys stadium, if no one shows up, that fight card is a failure.
It’s the boxing fans hard earned money that keeps the sport healthy and thriving. It doesn’t matter at all how skilled the fighters are, how slimy and slick talking the promoters can be, or how clear the HD looks on TV, without us, the fans, your all at UPS slinging boxes.
I once heard one fighter refuse to fight another fighter during an interview because the fighter he was asked about fighting, didn’t have high enough “television ratings” to make the fight attractive enough for him to accept.
They were both in the same weight class in the primes of their careers. In fact, the fighter who actually refused the fight was a highly skilled bigger and stronger man than the potential opponent.
For whatever reason, instead of taking a fight that was winnable to him, he jumped up two weight classes and fought a bigger, stronger man than he, who was just as highly skilled.
The guy got his ass handed to him! He could have fought the smaller fighter and possibly earned just as much money with a much better chance to win.
If I could pin-point a hypothetical reasoning of the fighter (which I choose to keep nameless during this piece) for not take a more winnable fight, there are two.
One, the smaller fighter is with a rival promotional company. Two, we’re in the era of the coveted “0”. Some highly skilled fighters would rather cherry pick fights against inferior opposition to put on a “show” than to risk a fight with an evenly matched opponent who may have a legitimate chance of beating them.
They do this type of thing to draw out anticipation and create social media hype that can potentially make the fight with the more evenly matched opponent more financially beneficial.
I get it. Just like the fans who pay, the fighters deserve just as much bang for their buck as anyone else. However, the fighter above never even headlined his own Pay-Per View Card.
He is well known to hard core boxing fans, but If I picked 100 random people off the street, I’d bet maybe only 20 or 30 people would know who he is. He was killed by foolish pride and arrogance.
Arrogance for using the lame excuse of the potential opponent’s lack of TV ratings as if his TV ratings were that much better. Foolish pride for taking an ill-advised fight against a bigger opponent who was apart of his same promotional company for the asinine sake of keeping money “in house”.
This type of attitude and disregard towards not just the sport but the fans needs to stop.
I understand fully what this sport is all about from the perspective of the fighters. Every time they step in that squared circle, there is no guarantee they’ll walk safely out of it.
Fighters risk their health and lives. As a daily practice, they punish their bodies to get in the best shape humanly possible to compete.
Boxing is not a game. Unfortunately, fighters risk brain injuries, detached retinas, broken bones, broken eye sockets, shattered ear drums, and cuts that can require many stitches to close.
It’s a sport that’s not for play. But to use the most over used phrase in the history of the world, “at the end of the day”, fighters, managers, promoters, and television networks have all willingly signed up for such a profession.
They’ve signed up for this profession because there people who are willing to pay their hard earned money to see it.
It definitely can be viewed as a sick addiction. I as the customer like any other boxing fan can use my money for anything.
Pay bills, clothing for myself or children, or food, and shelter. However, if a big fight comes down the pike that gets me excited, instead of focusing on padding my savings account or maybe getting ahead on car payments to pay it off sooner, I can throw extra money at a Pay-Per View card without a second thought because it’s a sport and culture I truly love dearly.
To the boxers. You’re the most important piece of this puzzle and you constantly give your power away to folks who could give two shits about your wellbeing.
You risk your lives and sacrifice time away from your families to acquire supreme focus to prepare for fights. You shed your blood, sweat and tears for our entertainment but before all that, you sign shitty contracts with lowlife promoters giving away your number one asset as a fighter and human being. Freedom.
It’s an utter disgrace that if Al Haymon and Bob Arum have some type of beef, they can stop Errol Spence from fighting Terrance Crawford.
It’s a shame that promoters can even sign fighters to exclusive long-term contracts. Isn’t the role of a promoter to simply promote fights? And if that’s they’re sole role as business entities, why in the blue moon hell should any fighter have any lengthy commitment to any one promoter?
Why can’t Al Haymon, who’s the head of the promotional company PBC sit down with Vasyl Lomachenko and discuss the possibility of him promoting a fight against another top fighter in Lomachenko’s weight class, Ryan Garcia?
The obvious is that Haymon doesn’t do business with fighters he doesn’t have under contract, and to the fighters, that’s my point.
Instead of owning your power and being independent contractors, you sell your souls in slave deals and for what?
It’s the promoters jobs to promote fights anyway. If those fuckers have no fighters to promote for boxing shows, there less important than buy here, pay here used car salesmen.
Fans pay to see fighters not promoters. My suggestion to fighters is instead of running to promoters for exclusive contracts that are complete nonsense, while taking shitty advances that lock you in long-term, develop fighter driven unions that protect you as fighters.
Hell, maybe you can take some of that money that your throwing away to sanctioning bodies and use it to hire lawyers and help develop unions of some sort.
NOT YOUR FUCKIN PROMOTERS LAWYERS! LAWYERS THAT FIGHTERS INDEPENDANTLY AGREE ON.
Fighters should be deciding who, when, and where they want to fight, and hire the promoters that they see fit for assistance to promote those fights without being obligated to fulfill long term contracts that are more beneficial to the promoter and his company than the fighter or fighters themselves.
It’s the fighters who should pay a fee to promoters that assist in putting the shows together and ultimately get the asses in the seats and people pushing the order button on the remotes.
After it’s all said and done, the individuals who took the most risk, the fighters themselves, because they collectively pooled money together to hire promoters to promote a show, then got in the ring and fought, should indeed get the bigger brunt of the money.
Promoters should never decide the paychecks of grown men and women who risk their lives. They should simply receive what the fighters deem appropriate just like any other “work for hire” relationship.
To the promoters. You cowardly waste of human flesh. You’ve destroyed this sport long enough with your money to manipulate rankings by jumping in bed with sanctioning bodies who are nothing more than workshops commanded by Lucifer straight from the pits of hell.
You highlight the poverty of human beings by dangling money from strings. You entice desperate individuals who simply want better lives for themselves and families.
You use slick word play, complicated contracts, and empty promises coaxing fighters into signing long-term controlling deals in this new era of modern day slave trades.
Cowardly because you wouldn’t dare get in the ring to risk your life for a check yourself. Cowardly because you wouldn’t sacrifice time with your families as the fighters do.
I understand some fighters choose to be promoters after their boxing careers. But some of those slimeballs treat fighters just as bad or even worse than the human units that have never put on the gloves before and it’s sickening.
If a fighter unfortunately loses they’re life in the ring, we can see shows of public displays of affection with 10 counts and moments of silence but what about college funds for the surviving children.
For those who have given help to families after tragedies on a consistent basis I’m not speaking to you. But like I said earlier whether you’re doing the right thing or not by the fighter, without the fighter, your nothing.
Instead of conning fighters into working for you, why not act as mentors (since your supposedly legit businessmen) and encourage and educate fighters to work with you.
Is it too much to have 50/50 nonexclusive deals with fighters on a fight to fight basis for the good of not just the fighters but the fans as well? (50/50 is just a random number I’ve thrown out there). The only thing that matters, is fighters remaining in control because they have the most important role.
And hey, the promoters and their respective companies can still make large sums of money because they too are not boxed in with fighters that they sometimes claim are hard to promote, or not fan-friendly enough.
Is it too much to ask that all major fights go to purse bid where the fighters have just as much control in their own financial futures while making the promoters actually earn the chance to have their company names alongside the marquee fighters in big events?
What’s all that wrong with Deontay Wilder making a huge show with DAZN if he could get a bigger check with them than PBC?
What if Gervonta Davis got tired of being upstaged by Floyd Mayweather during interviews? Or if he was fed up with Mayweather being at all his press conferences jumping in and out of conversations making him look like he can’t speak up for himself? Like he’s unintelligent or less than a man or something. I know I’m not the only one that’s noticed that.
What would be the harm in Davis headlining a Top Rank show if Bob Arum wanted to pay him the top dollar he deserves.
Or like my previous suggestions. Fighters themselves pool there monies together with the biggest name being the headline and paying a promoter a fee to promote. Why the hell can’t Gervonta Davis and his team hire Bob Arum to help promote a boxing show he headlines.
If he’s executing his right as an independent contractor to do and be what he chooses, he shouldn’t have to subject himself into a business relationship where he’s not comfortable or respected.
Not to say Mayweather is actually doing anything wrong or that Davis even has a problem with how Mayweather is doing things. But what if Davis does feel some kinda way about it?
I know, I know, I can hear all the promoters and even some fighters screaming to the top of their lungs, “This is boxing, it’s just the way it is”!
Well that’s the problem. It’s not the way it should be. The one who ultimately suffers the most is the fighters and the collateral damage is the fans.
You know what’s truly sickening about boxing to me these days? Great fighters in the same weight classes, in their primes who don’t fight.
Errol Spence and Terrance Crawford. That is this generations Leonard Versus Hearns. Two undefeated fighters in the same weight class who are champions that the fans are begging to see get it on.
I get it. Covid came through and threw a monkey wrench in everyone’s program. Before that, Spence had a horrible accident. But the world is opening back up. Spence is fine.
What if Spence and Crawford linked up once or twice a week on YouTube or Instagram to talk shit to each other during the pandemic to entertain boxing fans. That’s the journey. However, the destination would be as soon as everything opened back up, a 2021 or 2022 Showdown would be an all-star Pay-Per View event with Spence Versus Crawford in the main event.
You don’t think they could get 100,000 folks in the seats in Cowboys Stadium and Pay-Per View’s priced at $100?
You mean to tell me two killers in their primes couldn’t beat Pay-Per View numbers of two fighters passed their primes that dragged out a promotion for 5 years with a coup de gras of a fight that sucked?
Spence and Crawford could have easily taken home $80-100 million apiece.
The most disappointing thing that came from it all was Errol Spence having the audacity to say he wanted a 70/30 split in his favor. The MotherFuckin Disrespect! He sounded just as ignorant as the fighter I spoke on earlier in this piece for refusing to fight a guy because of lower TV ratings. Or was it that Spence really didn’t want the fight?
Spence is too in love with his 0. It seems he would rather run from greatness to avoid losing that 0 than to jump at the opportunity to make sure his Great-Great Grand Children were able to eat whether he won or lost. I really hope my assessment is inaccurate but it seems like that to me.
Whether it was the promotional companies or the fighters themselves, they truly dropped the ball and us fans are suffering from it.
And about that tired ass 5 year promotion that ended with a fight that sucked. Boxing is just now showing signs of recovering from that bullshit that turned so many off to the sport.
Even I as a lifelong boxing fan needed a break. But you know what kept me from throwing the towel in out of pure disgust? Andre Ward. Yep! Ward.
You know, the kid from Oakland who hadn’t lost a fight since he was 12 years old. The Olympic gold medalist. The guy who cleaned out the whole Super Middleweight division and moved up to Light-Heavy Weight to beat a Bonafide killer. That Ward Guy.
That Ward guy actually retired undefeated. Ward was not the favorite to win the super 6 but he did. A lot of folks picked Sergey Kovalev to beat Ward. The first fight was close but Ward knocked him out in the rematch.
Great all around guy. Extremely articulate. Family man. No problems with the law. His only problem was his prime overlapping that of Pacquaio and Mayweather and when everyone was disgusted with those two, they looked away from boxing and missed the last part of a legendary career that was executed by Andre Ward.
That man deserved better. He deserves a hall of fame ceremony where he is the only featured modern day fighter.
Not taking credit from the other greats because they truly are. Roy Jones Jr, Bernard Hopkins, and Floyd Mayweather.
But with all due respect, those old fuckers stole money from the public fighting well passed their best days. It ultimately overshadowed the greatness of Andre Ward to a degree. Now he’s got to share Hall of fame years once again being tucked in the shadows.
That man deserved better. He’s every bit worth of $50-$100,000,000 paydays. His rematch with Kovalev should have at least been 1,000,000 Pay-Per View buys. But we as boxing fans were bitter at the bullshit that was #MayPac and just couldn’t bring ourselves to supporting out of fear of being duped again.
HBO boxing shuts down. No Comment
To the Networks. You actually have the power to fix this. You have more money than the promoters. In fact, without you, the promoters can’t sufficiently promote. But guess who has more money than the networks? The fans. Collectively.
A lot of folks only had HBO because of boxing and even though boxing at times was on Showtime as well, all the best fighters fought on HBO.
ESPN has always been a corner stone of the sport. Now were streaming fights with DAZN. Where is ESPN, Showtime, DAZN, and Fox getting there money from? Us. The fans!!!
You tell me what would happen if us fans decided to quit paying subscriptions and overpriced cable bills until the contracts to Crawford Versus Spence were signed? I’m talking about shutting everybody down. Teofimo Lopez, Lomachenko, Fury, Wilder, Joshua, Devin Haney, and so on.
Why can’t us as the fans simply hold our money? If we hold our money, the networks and streaming services don’t get paid. If they don’t get paid, the promoters can’t put on fight shows. If the fight shows can’t be created, the ones who suffer are the fighters because they can’t feed their families.
All roads lead to us fans. We have the power to demand the fights we want and when we want them or simply exercise our option to put our money towards more useful things. I wish we realized as fans how much power we have.

People do million dollar business every day, all over the world. I’d like to experience something like that if it were just once. I wish I could be clear on how a person or group of people could get a return on there investment with me. All I have seen is that Author’s or other creators receive a certain amount of exposure. Whether they have figured a way to build a fan base organically, or were discovered and introduced to the masses by a more established individual or group. Then they make there product available to be sold. At one point a plan was made that placed a certain amount for value on what an individual created. My book for instance is $10. If the goal is to sell one million books at $10 a piece, that total profit I anticipate is $10,000,000. I have a road with a destination. It’s the middle part that’s sketchy. Things like exposure, which is a part of marketing is definitely important. Targeting a demographic which I’ve done. Although I’d love for everyone to read my book, it’s mainly for men between 35-50 who are possibly experiencing what used to be called “a midlife crisis”. Right now, because of limited resources, my plan is to market and target my audience on social media, word of mouth, and I’m in the beginning process of organizing a book tour in my local area where I will attempt to meet people in community centers and apartment complexes. Ive already began to make phone calls for that. These are the things I’ve come up with but I’m open and willing to learn of new ideas as well. I’ve sold somewhere between 15-25 books with no help in a two month period. Just word of mouth and social media posts. To have a team with me with real resources can multiply these numbers dramatically. The book is only 117 pages. For the average reader it’s a pretty quick read that’s entertaining, thought provoking and has some solutions for some problems. I believe investor’s will have returns on their investment in 3 years or less. I’m completely dedicated to making that happen. I figure 75-25 split my way until the profits of the book are satisfied for the investor’s. If I earn money from speaking engagements and or YouTube and Patreon subscribers that could be worked out as well to help pay back the investment. If their are 7.5 billion people on earth the likelihood of selling 1,000,000 117 page books at $10 a piece that’s promoting mental health awareness is extremely likely within a 3 year period. Lastly, the money invested will also create time for me to be mentored by the investor. I want to learn. I want to learn how the potential investor got where he or she is financially so I will never be where I’m currently at in life again. I believe in each one teach one, so whatever I learn, I will teach one or more coming behind me. I’ve written out a structured plan where me and the potential investor will know where every penny of the $1,000,000 will go. If things need to be tweaked, like I said, I’m willing to learn. I have them written out in my notebook and by the end of the day, I’ll have them either in my phone or on my computer so they could be sent and reviewed. I’m already a professional author, music producer, and content creator. I just haven’t been all that financially successful and that doesn’t mean I don’t have the gifts or talents to be such. It just means I haven’t learned to get what I’ve created in my life to the next level and that’s not bad. It just is what it is. I would like to have a serious investor who’s ready to get to work in ONE WEEK. July 11, 2021. 7 days. Like I’ve said, their are million dollar deals happening every day. Why can’t it happen for me. I’ve put in the time to create a product that can provide a service that can create an income. I believe completely in myself that’s why I’m on this platform sharing as I am. I truly appreciate your time. If your someone that can help or know of someone, email me at email@example.com. Also, please purchase my book from either Amazon https://www.amazon.com/dp/B092TWJQF6/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_glt_324SE7P51M6RSWN2JTBA Or me directly by sending your name and address to the above email firstname.lastname@example.org, go to cash app to pay $10 for a signed copy and I’ll have it out to you shortly. Thank you so much for your time.
My books are real. My Purpose is true and my goal is simple. Get this book in the hands of as many people as possible.
Looking for those who can join my journey with me. Ultimately, I want to stand on stages sharing my story of how I’ve overcome dark moments.
Life is hard at times but I keep pushing because ultimately my time will come when everything I see in my imagination and mind will be in my reality.
Within 3-5 years I want to open a youth center that focuses on the elements of Hip-hop for the mind and soul, boxing for the fitness and discipline, and classes for studying Think and Grow Rich By Napoleon Hill.
I want to help the kids so they don’t go through I went through. That’s the future.
My book is for folks my age. 30s, 40s and 50s, that went about life with no real blue print and found themselves in trying times.
I figure, Help the folks my age so we can heal and guide the young folks so they won’t have to read books like mine for encouragement.
Hip-hop will have there spirits right, boxing will have them physically fit, and think and grow rich will give the direction of how to create there own wealth.
I’m definitely not looking for a hand out. I’d like to find an individual or a team of individuals who want to stand behind a great idea that will benefit many. ✌🏿&🖤 Folks.
