My Thoughts- Stop Finger Pointing and Blame Yourself!

I might ruffle some feathers with this post, but fuck it I gotta get this off of my chest. In no way do I condone abuse of any kind, rather it be mental or physical, no one deserves to be abused by anyone! However, if you find yourself going through the same dam thing day after day, month after month, or year after year its on you. If you have not applied any change or action to what needs attention in your life, then you just might like what you are getting, or you are very comfortable.
People come to me all of the time with their problems and I try to motivate them the best I can. Lately I have really been getting overloaded with issues from friends, and most of them have been going through the same thing for years. Most of their problems stems from relationships. Some of them I have cut ties with because they just want to load me up with garbage, and they need someone to co-sign the bullshit that they are doing. The older I get the more that I realize that some of my friends are …

My Thoughts - Always Be the Bigger Person, Let No One Steal Your Peace!

Yesterday I completed my first week at my new job site as the manager, and I got to know a lot about my new employees. One thing that I had to deal with my first day was the pettiest two employees I've ever met in life. You see I have an older woman who is jealous of a young man who has proven himself of being a great worker, so she snitches on him constantly. In return he is always finger pointing at her about any little thing. If I tell him to do something he wants to know why she can't do it, and boy did I have to teach a lesson real fast.
Now the young man has a good reputation on the job, but the older woman not so much. The woman is old enough to be his mom so I expect a little more out of him than her. I sat him down in the office and told him that you are to gr

Blog Tips - Monetize Your Blog With Your Own Products!

Courtesy of finien.com
I see so many bloggers/influencer's promoting other people brands, and we are constantly looking for more collaborations. While there is nothing wrong with this, we cannot forget that we have talent and gifts as well. We create our blogs to share information on the things that we know about, and/or to show you how to do something. These things are valuable my friends, so let's turn this value into money.
Many of my blogger friends are always trying to figure out how to monetize their blog, and their always looking outside instead of within. You are the brand my fellow bloggers! That domain name of yours is the brand, and after a brand is established comes the products. The products do not have to be physical, they can be be sold in digital form.
If you have knowledge in a certain area, write an e-book on that subject and sell it. If you are a musician, create music and sell it as downloads. If you are a makeu…

My Thoughts - My Brand D'oro Della Vita - The Golden Life

I want to take the some time to introduce you to my brand D'oro Della Vita (The Golden Life), and my vision for it as well. For those of you who have been following my blog, you may have seen me advertising my brand, but not really know what it really means. This post is just a little summary of what this brand means to me, and why I started it.
I have always had two major dreams, producing music was one, owning a clothing line was the other. As years went by I realized that the music business was not for me, I dabbled in it but quickly realized that I am not built for that life. I spent so much time in my life working to pay bills, trying get rich quick schemes, all sorts of things that I forgot about my other dreams.
I sat down one day and really asked my self a serious question... "Kataurus Braswell what do you want do do with your life"? For a minute there I could not answer this question, I was actually confused. So I sat there for a minute and went back to my teen…

Motivation - Who Knows More Than God? Read Your Bibles!

If you are not a believer in God this post is not for you, so please keep it moving! Now that we got that out of the way, lets get down to business. As I go through most days I often hear people talk about how worried, sick, scared, broke, devastated, stressed, and everything they are. I look at my own life and see how thrown off I can get. I often get into situations that I find myself getting down about, and yet somehow I always come out on top.
Every time that I go through something and come out on top, I feel a sense of shame because I know that GOD always bails me out, and yet I still panic. God has shown me time and time again that he has my back, and I know that he has done the same for you. He has given us instructions on how to live, and those instructions covers most situations that we can ever experience in life. All we have to do is open up our Bibles, read them, and do what he has said. I mean when we go to work we follow the rules and get the job done, and some of us ar…

My Thoughts: Do You Keep Your Friends of the Opposite Sex While In a Relationship!

The word friend is a very strong word, and we should be mindful of who we call friend! A friend is someone that's going to be there no matter what. When you laugh, cry, and get sick, the friend is there. They are often there before you meet that special someone and decide to settle down. Hell, they might even know you better than that special someone that you just met. The question is... what if that friend(s) is of the opposites sex, and you have settled down?
Let me paint the picture....! So you are chilling at home with your Bae, Boo, Husband, Wife, Significant other, suga daddy, man, woman, other, or whatever the hell you want to call them or it. You get a phone call from your home girl or home boy, and they ask you to go out and have some drinks because they need to talk. What do you say? If you say yes Ill meet you there, will you be in trouble? If you say no I can't, did you feel like you were not being a friend. Ill also add that you and your boo were not spending qua…

My Thoughts - Make Time for Your Parents

I hope everyone's Easter Sunday was great, I know mines was. I woke up this morning thinking about yesterday, and how I spent all day talking to my mother and father. I almost missed this opportunity due to the fact I didn't feel like making the 2 hour drive. I haven't been home this year, and I use to go at least once a month, so I just felt like I should take the ride no matter what. My mom wanted me to come home Saturday morning, and when I told her that I didn't feel like it she said.... "maybe you can rest and come this evening". I was so tired and did not make the ride Saturday, but instead I went to bed early.
I woke up early Sunday morning, and my mind just starting running. It was Easter Sunday, my fiance was in Alabama visiting her mom, and I was laying in the bed alone. God started speaking to me, and I felt it in my heart to get up and take that ride. I am the second to the youngest of 4 boys, and I seem to be the most sensible out of the bunch, …
