I know we all have been keeping busy. I’ve been away from here for a while, needed to recuperate and enjoy my summer. No vacations over the summer, but I spent a lot of time with friends and family. I’ve been trying new things with my hair just added some highlights to my Mohawk. That really made me step out of my comfort zone and I flat ironed my hair & rocked the pompadour. I recently went to the Hullabaloo 2013 celebrating Valerie Mayen’s “Yellow Cake” clothing collection. She has a lot of Amazing clothes & a keen eye on detail. She does a lot of work with leather, lace, & prints. I ate great there and enjoyed the atmosphere with the people. If you would’ve told me I’d be at my first fashion show sitting in the 2nd row, looking Starrahfied I wouldn’t have believed it.
I have been putting a lot of energy into my radio show, which will be 1 Years Old on December 7th. I went through various changes of my show, at first I was on the mic, creating the show, and that was it. Now I produce, engineer, create, & call all of the shots for my “All Things Willie J” Show. My co-host, Ms. Tiffany has been kicking butt too. She has gotten me great guests on the show and has had my back in whatever decisions I’ve made and been my sound board. I couldn’t have asked for a better person to start that journey with. Less than a year ago I was unemployed & unsure of what I wanted to do. Now I’m back working, running my OWN radio show, got a business coach, and venturing into other branding ideas. I will continue taking my brand further and allowing myself to explore all that life has to offer. It feels good to write again and start letting my STARRAHS back in on everything that is going on with me.
This year I am Thankful to have gone through the experience of losing my job because it pushed me to take a break and get clear on me. I’m Thankful to have taken more time for myself and stop overwhelming myself with various projects or taking care of other people’s problems. I am Thankful to have a few good friends that have helped me GROW and have had my back when most people would’ve walked away and not helped me through my rough patch. I’m Thankful to have a voice to speak to others and encourage them to push forward. I’m Thankful to not be alone and have found the courage to seek help with my brands because I can’t do all of this by myself. Oprah didn’t and neither will l. Lastly, I’m Thankful to all of my STARRAHS who root for me, send positive energy my way, and take time to read my blog. You all give me strength beyond words.
Simply Put: Thank You!
Happy Holidays Starrahs,
