“It starts with self, first.” Are you able to look yourself in the mirror, and boldly face reality? Your ability to face the toughest parts of your reality, with full honesty and acceptance will determine where you go. It’s one of the most difficult things, but you MUST begin, here. Since a young boy in Compton, Kendrick has struggled with serious setbacks. Listen intently to his music, and you’ll hear some of his most personal stories. I’m talking bone-chilling stories… the ones you listen to and think to yourself, “DAMN”…

For every strength, there’s always a weakness. To my entrepreneurs; establish your vision. Starting your hustle without your vision will lead you on an unclear path. Take it from Big Sean… don’t turn 50 only to look back at your “woulda-coulda-shoulda’s”. If you follow your heart, you’ll earn your pot of gold.

Don’t be surprised by the mentally weak. As a matter of fact; before feeling any type of way, you must study yourself first. Remember, how your people respond is a reflection of you. So, how do you perform under pressure? Think about what this says about you. Then, translate it through your leadership. Fair enough?
