Fashion fun fact: Barney's New York

Barney Pressman pawned his wife's wedding ring for $500.00 in NYC to lease a Seventh Ave. store selling discounted men's suits. In 1993 Barney's opened a $270 million Madison Ave. showcase store.

Legendary Quotes..

A 'No' uttered from the deepest conviction is better than a 'Yes' merely uttered to please, or worse, to avoid trouble.


If you always put limit on everything you do, physical or anything else. It will spread into your work and into your life. There are no limits. There are only plateaus, and you must not stay there, you must go beyond them.


Every closed eye is not sleeping, and every open eye is not seeing.

GOOD MUSIC in this B******TCH

So, I pretty much make a trip to La every week now or at least every other week. This time I was there to celebrate my homie Key's birthday on 4/19/09 at My House. Then on Wednesday and Friday my boy Arenbe of Beautiful Musik(http://www.myspace.com/beautifulmusik) met me up and we went to meet up Big Sean who's signed to Good Music for his mixtape release party/meet and greet signing.

Legendary Quotes..(I love caricatures)

I dream for a living.

I don't believe in failure. It is not failure if you enjoyed the process.


If I'd had some set idea of a finish line, don't you think I would have crossed it years ago?

A GOOD READ

Powerful and inspired, DO YOU! is a rare blend of business acumen, fierce spiritual faith and priceless advice.

Indeed, those solely looking for advice on how to build up their bank accounts at the expense of personal integrity should probably look elsewhere. That's because these laws stem from the belief that all success, be it professional or personal, comes from a connection with your higher self. Using examples from his own experiences and observations, Russell demonstrates how tapping into that connection will allow you to get your mind right, find the motivation to start instead of stall, surround yourself with the right people, appreciate the power of hard work and understand the power of karma.

But most importantly, this book will demonstrate how it's impossible to receive any sort of lasting success from the world without giving something of lasting value to the world first. That's a practice that is reflected in Russell's own work as a mentor and philanthropist and one that he promotes as being fundamental to empowerment and success on every level.

Blending business insight, universal spiritual truths and an inspired sense of purpose DO YOU! crosses the lines of age, race and background with wisdom that will lift you up and motivate you to pursue your vision.

Success seems to be connected with action. Successful people keep moving. They make mistakes, but they don't quit.

~ Conrad Hilton

Get it!! Whatever it is you want in life - GET IT!!!

If you're asking yourself how...follow this equation:
HOW(find out what's required/needed to reach your goals) + ACTION(just do it) = Results

I love his competitive spirit to win and perseption on life. The Greatest to ever play: Michael AIR Jordan

We were in LA to meet the Prince of Saudi Arabia & Sir Steven Saxton for an interest in LAVSH




























































































They are both partners & operate Hollywood Studios International. Hollywood Studios International, an entertainment holding company, exists to create award-winning entertainment which succeeds both artistically and commercially through the inherent synergies of combining elements of a traditional studio system with the structure of artist management.

They are involved in projects like the films Monster, which won an Academy Award for Charlize Theron, and The Upside of Anger, starring Joan Allen and Kevin Costner, are both highly profitable films. Monster has done about $80 million theatrical box office worldwide and its budget was only around $5 million. The Upside of Anger, while touting important stars, still kept its budget to around $9 million and to date has grossed $72 million worldwide.

Thank you to Jaymee Laygo for believing in the brand & setting up the meeting.

I like hearing stories of successful people

The entrepreneur is essentially a visualizer and actualizer...He can visualize something, and when he visualizes it he sees exactly how to make it happen.

A LAVSH MIND SET...

Your life is not so much determined by what life brings to you as by the attitude you you bring to life; not so much by what happens to you as by the way your mind looks at what happens.

John Homer Miller

A CLASSIC READ

Even if it is 70 years since the book Think and Grow Rich was written, it is still a highly respected and read book. It has sold millions of copies and is a "Bible" for people who are searching financial freedom. The essence of the book is Napoleon Hill's famous statement: Everything your mind can concieve, you can archieve" The title says the same, in different works: Think Aand Grow Rich

The book teaches "thirteen steps to riches" accourding to Napoleon Hill.

It offers many questionnaires and practical excercise in addition to all the text it gives you clear guide lines in how to set goals and reach them and how to make clear plans to follow. You are shown how you can realize your highest potential, and succeed in anything you set your mind to.

It also teaches you not to give up, and see all mistakes as learning opportunities. Napoleon Hill Teaches that successful people never considers temporary failure as a permanent defeat.

This is for the ladies

When we were in LA we met the Owner of H. Lorenzo himself...














It was an honor to meet him because I have been a fan of his store. He told me I have a great vision, that I'm a dreamer by the way I create clothing, & that I will have a great future in fashion. That meant a lot coming from somebody who identifies talent. Thank you to Matt for the introduction.

While I speak from experience, hunger and hurt
And a little bit of hate from n***** doin me dirt
I just wash it all out with Tide and show love
to those who ride with me while I'm puttin in work-De La Soul
