Quit Living In FEAR?

How many times have you foregone doing something because you were scared? Scared of what could potentially happen, scared of who you could potentially become! Take a short moment to think how your current situation could have been so much different had you just took that leap of faith and jumped! Did you know that fear is one of many emotions that prevents us from living in our purpose. It is the unknown that holds people back from taking risk both in business and in finances. Ask yourself this question…Are you operating in a emotional state of fear? If so, QUIT LIVING IN FEAR!!!

Are you terrified of success?

Success can be absolutely terrifying, especially when you don’t know what lies ahead. When owning a business it can be challenge to continuously elevate your company to a level of success.

Why Chris Rock was perfect to host The Oscars

 

 

 

Chris Rock in Black Hollywood, The Oscars and Diversity

Chris Rock as the host of The Oscars, tackling #OscarsSoWhite boycott and lack of diversity

Now I know this late according to some people but I’m the type of writer where I can’t write until I have some real to reflect on and have content to back it up.
At the 88th 2016 Academy Awards, Chris Rock hosts The Oscars , (in my opinion) dove right in and found a eloquent and comedic way of addressing the boycott JadaPS(started by Jada Pinkett Smith, in defense of the lack of diversity in award nominees and categories aka the neglect of her actor husband, Will Smith), the lack of diversity in Hollywood and references to hashtag #OscarsSoWhite. Rock was able to get people out of their comfort zones and pay more attention by showing up and hosting the show even though some of his actor comrades would have preferred he not take the job. I mean, can’t you make more if s difference being in the room than not even in the game to start.
Now that I’ve said all of that, my subconscious reminded that Chris Rock had already addressed diversity in filmthe issue of diversity and calling out the African American community a few years back in a HBO special, The Black List. His piece was one of my favorite because it not only make me want to stand up and take accountability for my own legacy but gave me the permission to fail at something but still get back up on my feet and keep going. Jada (as much as I love you), should’ve watched this because it may have been one of his best but you forgot you and your family are in position where if someone said you sucked, you’d still be okay. You are also in a position of power to create your own Black Academy Award Show (if you are ready, solicit my services for branding concepts and marketing).

Take a look at the clip and be reminded to get up and go to work for what you want, get in the room and let’s get to the point where we create our own opportunities and leverage our resources…you will still be awesome if you sucked!!

Leave your comments! Do you think that Chris Rock made the right choice to host?

Procrastinate: The Silent Dream Killer

Procrastination can be one of many reasons why we do not accomplish what our heart desires. Often times we put things off for tomorrow that can be done today. How many of us have done that once or twice in our life? To procrastinate, or not to procrastinate, that is the golden question!

Understand one thing beautiful KINGS and QUEENS, nothing will ever get accomplished if we do not hold ourselves accountable, buckle down and get it done! So often I hear people talk about what they want to do but very rare do they actually accomplish that thing. How many times have you said you want to debt free? How many times have you said you want to start a business? How many times have you said you need to network or partner with that person and never got around to doing it? Realize, words without action is worthless. Remember that old saying “Don’t talk about it, be about it”. That is what I want to encourage you to do TODAY!

Ending Procrastination – Psychologytoday.com

You may be telling yourself you don’t have the time, or you already have too many things going on, or you may not know how to go about doing what it is you are trying to do. Ask yourself this question is procrastinating going to get you where you trying to go any faster? How bad do you really want it?!?! Do not be discouraged!

It may seem like that “thing” is unattainable RIGHT NOW but I promise you once you let go of all the excuses, remove the fear of the unknown and take that leap of faith, you will start to bask in the fruits of your hard work and dedication. I speak from experience when I say that there is nothing more gratifying than looking back and seeing all of the sacrifices you made to reach your goal!

Until we meet again stay encouraged and STOP PROCRASTINATING!

Need Some Sick Apparel? Occhio Black Has It All…

IMG_2654

Us fashion crooners are always looking for a new hot exclusive line to welcome to our closets. With summer approaching, we all want to be fresh from head to toe. With apparel lines on a major rise, our closets are looking for some attention from different clothing lines. It seems as though underground lines are the “new thing”, Me personally I love rocking apparel, a fly t-shirt or hoodie with some sneakers are always a go to for me when I want to dress it down, but still be one the best dressed in the room while not wearing the normal sexy dress and heels. Us keyholders here at Society Keeper are always on the look out for the hottest trends as well as the hottest up and coming designers.

IMG_2656IMG_2655We recently came across the Atlanta based clothing line, Occhio Black. With the name meaning “The Black Eye of Success”, it gives a fresh, refined, but urban appeal. Looking through the various pieces, this line is definitely worth mentioning, or spending money on rather. The line was founded in 2011 in Savannah, GA by Brooklyn native Eric Poole who now resides in Atlanta, GA. According to Mr. Poole he had been selling clothes his whole life starting with his mother owning a store. It all started with $60, some tees from Walmart, and paint; things flourished from there. Sounds like a humble beginning doesn’t it? The line began when Eric attended Savannah State University in Savannah. It was then he started to sell his clothing out of own home and the line was instant hot commodity among the campus which later became relevant in the music and fashion.

IMG_2659After being around for a few years now, the line carries some notoriety. With stars like Teyana Taylor wearing the apparel, and appearances on notable television shows such as MTV’s Black Ink, Occhio Black is definitely a line to look out for. It reminds us of the likes of other apparel lines on online boutiques such as Karmaloop. However, this line offers something different, it is fresh and cutting edge along with it’s nostalgic logo of a bleeding eye. The CEO, Eric Poole, describes the line as “Eclectic, different, street…”. ECLECTIC! The perfect adjective to describe this brand. We can’t wait to see what more this brand has to offer! We’re absolutely confident the next collection from this brand will blow us away!
