Blessed, Children, and College: Ballerific Woman - Issa Rae, From Youtube Star to HBO Superstar @balleralert Ballerific Woman - Issa Rae, From Youtube Star to HBO Superstar - Blogged by @Climb_This_Hill ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In a perfect world, men and women would receive equal pay. African American women would be presented the same opportunities as their white counterparts. Rejection would be based on qualifications rather than race. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Unfortunately, this world is far from perfect, however, there are people, more specifically women, who have dedicated their time, money and education to make a positive change. They’ve used their experiences and their encounters with injustices to fight and-or create more opportunities for their children and their children’s children, in an effort to make the world a better place. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ They've put our pain and problems on their backs and created space for change, new opportunities for our brothers and sisters to excel and succeed in a world that is designed against us. This is BlackExcellence. These are BallerificWomen. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ One of those special individuals is Ms. Issa Rae. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Best known for her hit HBO series, “Insecure," after making her break with her hit Youtube series, "Awkward Black Girl," Issa has blessed us with over 20 visual projects, which she either produced, starred in, or wrote. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Her YouTube channel has captured over 260,000 subscribers and 20 million views and counting. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Proving not only to be a strong force and inspiration for women in general, Ms. Issa Rae, is a proven example that black women can be bosses too....but we already knew that! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ She takes pride in being an actress, writer, director, producer and web series creator. She has earned her college degree in African American studies and has studied at some of the country’s most famed acting academies. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Issa Rae has been featured in Forbes annual, “30 Under 30,” list, Essence Magazine, Rolling Stone, and Vanity Fair, just to name a few. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ With so much under her belt, and still so young, we’re pleased to know that Ms. Issa Rae will be blessing us with her talent for many years to come.

Being Alone, Comfortable, and Energy: MILLIONAIRE MENTOR MAKE THINGS HAPPEN TODAY Would you like to know how to make things HAPPEN in your life? Read on! 👇👀 - Too many people spend their lives counting down the days until the weekend so they can forget about their temporary reprieve. Then it’s right back on the hamster wheel. Some live their lives in comfortable ignorance, unaware of their true potential. They have it good; you can’t agonize over anything you don’t value. But then there are those who know better, that feel like life is passing them by because they have so much to offer. Plagued by the fact that all of their creative energy is going to waste, they are tortured souls. If this is you, I have good news: You can change that. 😉 - ✔️Consume less. Produce more. Assuming one has a full-time job, nearly half of the hours in their week go towards working and sleeping. The problem for most people is they’ve conditioned themselves to come home each day and consume. Going out to the bar, watching television, spending hours on social media, all of these are means of consuming and can be detrimental to your productivity. If you want to start making things happen in your life… if you desire to get off the hamster wheel, then something has to change. And you know what it is! ✔️Don’t be afraid to start your own path. One of the biggest hang-ups for creative people is their innate desire to rally the troops. I struggled with this for years. “I need to get my friends on board with my vision first,” I told myself. “Then I’ll start making things happen.” But that’s the wrong mindset. You can’t rely on people to get behind your vision before you take action. You have to lead first. 🤔 👉READ THIS CAREFULLY: There’s nothing wrong with enjoying yourself, but keep your end goal in mind. Is what you’re doing today going to get you to where you want to be tomorrow? If not, it’s time to make a change. Remember too, that sometimes being a creator means blazing your own trail. If you have an idea, go after it. There’s no time to wait for others to follow you. What do you think? Are you guilty of consuming too much and producing too little? Do you sometimes feel like you’re alone in your creative journey? Share your thoughts below!👇 - getit success

Alive, Children, and Family: Let's Talk: Why Is It Important For Blacks In High Positions To Stand Up For Their People? @balleralert Let’s Talk: Why Is It Important For Blacks In High Positions To Stand Up For Their People? - blogged by @peachkyss ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ You would think that in 2017, the slave mentality of some people wouldn’t be present. Well, guess what? It’s here and it’s up to us to stand up for our rights. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We can protest as much as we like but there are some people in this society that don’t give a damn how blacks feel. Everyday we are constantly reminded that our opinions don’t have any type of substance and we are tired. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ There are so many black people that are in higher positions that have a platform to stand up for us as a whole but refuse to do so. I’m sick and tired of hearing, “I don’t want to lose my sponsors” or “This is my job and I have to do what I’m told.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ This is pure BS! That’s slave mentality. You like being mistreated by “the people” at the top. Our ancestors did not care whether they had a job to fulfill or not. They spoke up every chance they got and we must do the same. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We cannot let this celebrity in chief continue to degrade us and treating this country as a damn dictatorship. This country is supposed to be moving forward but we keep getting knocked backwards. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ If you have a platform speak up. Your children, significant others, and family are looking up to you for guidance and support. Don’t let them down by being silent. Speak the hell up! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Don’t let us continue to be degraded on a daily basis because of the color of our skin. Our ancestors fought for our freedom and we must continue to keep the legacy and hope alive. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ We are counting on you, so do what’s right. Stop thinking with your wallet and start thinking about how your boss only sees you as “his slave.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What are your thoughts?
