Changing the narrative

Over the course of 4 years, I have spoken about changing the narrative that has been portrayed by the media and by bad faith actors like criminals and gang members who look just like us.

Barack Obama was one of many who did what he could to do so he once said: be the change you want to see in the world it is what many believe and set out to do people like Boyce Watkins, Dr. Umar johnson, Nostradamus (rapper) LeBron James, Colin Kaepernick, Jay Morrison Chef Jeff Henderso, rock harper, nafise banga even J Alexander kueng one of the officers who were involved in the George Floyd murder who joined the police force to change the police force from the inside.

However the only way we’re going to make a change is if we work together as a community that means all of us has to do our part even the police that we ourselves don’t want to work with have to work with them to make changes to the system that means reallocating resources to go to schools after school programs vocational training and college education in addition to conflict resolution and gang prevention programs like get out stay out save Harlem and cease fire among many others.

Boyce Watkins, Dr. Umar johnson, Nostradamus (rapper) LeBron James, Colin Kaepernick, Jay Morrison, Chef Jeff Henderson, rock harper, fis banga and countless others who continue to fight for equality and change are coming from a place of compassion and experience unlike the rappers out there who are just trying to get your money.

Racism and crime are a pollutant we must also throw away sometimes you have to clean up the trash in order to see the floor.

The war on work

In this Millennia that we live in, there has been a war waging against work. A lot of it has to do with a lack of passion and motivation, among other social issues such as child care, Healthcare, and time management the proper however a lot of it has to with the propaganda is that a lot of multi-level marketing companies spread.

Employees in menial jobs who aren’t pushing for further education are unmotivated and can you care less about whatever situation; They often bring there home with them to work; some don’t value the time nor the opportunity nor the money, they come to work, not even doing the minimum they lack customer service call out for whatever reason and come in late to work.

However Fast forward to the COVID-19 pandemic where they shut down businesses and jobs that were deemed non-essential since the epidemic both customers and employees a big box stores like Target & Costco’s saw newfound respect and appreciation for the work that has been done, someone who is coming from retail can understand that dealing with people, not an easy job. However, it is not as hard as the medical staff and police officers had during this pandemic.

New York and Michigan did a poor job addressing protesters’ concerns, especially Governor Andrew Cuomo after he came out and said in frustration if you want to go back to work get an essential job; while, those considered essential were still not taken care of like delivery drivers who were denied access to the restrooms.

This pandemic sparked a debate on what’s essential and what’s non-essential depending on the service they provide, for example, a liquor store is as essential a church and is not Church’s are crucial to mental health.

In my opinion, any business and or duty that provides a service you need (not want) for therapeutic, physical, and mental health or helps prevent the spread of other diseases, addiction, and mental illness is essential; This should not have included liquor stores but should have included massage parlors barbershops and hair Salon under OSHA guidelines of the length of facial and head hair especially when the mask has to fit your nose and mouth.

I will leave you with these two videos from Mike Rowe of dirty jobs

John Schneider interview with Ethan Klein H3 H3

On February 10, 2020 John Schnatter the founder and former CEO of Papa John’s sat down with Ethan Klein podcast H3 H3 the interview is 2 hours long and not only talks about everything John has gone through since leaving Papa John’s over the controversy of his use of the n-word but a serious conversation about cancel culture customer service and quality control.

John Schnatter is a victim of cancel culture and public shaming something that John Oliver had covered on his show last season where he even interviewed Monica Lewinsky who is a victim of circumstance considering in the acts of former President Clinton.

In the interview, he talks about the day of the call and how the company kept pushed past issues of commentary on the NFL kneeling controversy which he discusses the reasons for his NFL comments, and in order for him to move on to the next topic he decided to say he’s not like Colonel Sanders and that he would never say the n-word while using the n-word in a different context which should never be said under any circumstance it’s a forbidden word.

He also states that the media company that he had the interview with had tried to blackmail him for $6,000,000 dollars with the tape that they had of him saying the word and everyone threw him under the bus, he claims this was done to remove him from the board so they can take over the company while this is not the case cancel culture tends to take down innocent bystanders along the way through a process called Guilty By Association if you just send them you are guilty their wrongdoing you’re either with us or against us type of mentality the board was trying to distance the brand from the controversy.

Since his departure quality and Leadership of management has changed, I haven’t had Papa johns pizza in over 12 years, but I will say their services were better than dominoes and since they use delivery services like Postmates it’s also a lot easier to see when your food is arriving unlike dominos

I have to say though if John Schneider decided to have his own show where he pretty much eats and fixes small restaurants that’s a show I would tune in to every week just like Gordon Ramsay’s 24 hours to hell and back.

That’s all I have for you today, so without further Ado, let’s just jump into a shout out of the week, and I am always looking for paid sponsors, so if you are interested, please send money to my cash app cash.Me/CEONX.

Covid-19 affected everything

Due to the unfortunate situation, a lot of people are suffering from financial hardship, depression & death of family which is why it is important to understand everyone’s perspective.

Initially, I was going to talk about social media and YouTube censorship and demonetization tactics because I think that’s very important however I also want to talk about how we need to listen to one another and not be so quick to shut them down even speak to each other about the solution instead of shutting each other down

So the first thing I want to get to is YouTube demonetization while YouTube has already explained that their system is flawed when it comes to their algorithm programs.

I believe that’s the way YouTube is handling videos and demonetization is contributing to there main issues because anyone that mentioned word COVID-19 their videos were demonetized which prevented talks about business, health mental and physical, or entertainment about the consequences of this virus.

YouTube has probably taken down hundreds of videos with dissenting opinions which contributes to conspiracy theorists rising up.

Even though YouTube doesn’t have to do because the fakers will take them down themselves just to look like martyrs, the same thing is happening on Facebook Twitter and Instagram because of this; it leaves no room for debate.

In recent days president of the United States recently signed an executive order against social media companies after Twitter decided to fact-check the president on mail-in voting.

That’s all I have for you today, so without further Ado, let’s just jump into a shout out of the week, and I am always looking for paid sponsors, so if you are interested, please send money to my cash app cash.Me/CEONX.

The honey pot company

In honor of women’s History Month, I want to talk about the honey pot company what is a black-owned female company that produces plant-based products for females.

Bea Dixon

Launched in 2014 by Bae Dixon who speaks about her experience with suffering from bacterial vaginosis months. She got the ingredients from a family recipe turn it down from generation to generation She created the formula for an effective, clean feminine wash and It worked!

Flash Forward to today Target decided to invest in her business and its own shows everywhere now because of the attention that she’s received her business is now booming however it does not come without unwarranted scrutiny over the idea that it’s a black-owned business and the fact that it has been paraded as such.

most of you guys already know I asked you for more black-owned businesses while I take out the black-owned in the advertisement in order to be more inclusive and others can also buy and they’re not so dependent on their community depending on the product at hand because not every product is made the same way especially when talking about hair products.

I applaud anybody who starts their own business because that is something not everybody can do no matter who it is we should always sport businesses such as long as. carry the products that we essentially need the one thing that makes this company great is that it is eco-friendly and organic which makes it safe or everybody doesn’t come with chemicals that they put in other products that may affect each and every person in a different way.

Because I’m not a female that’s all I have for you today so without further Ado let’s just jump into a shout out of the week and I am always looking for paid sponsors so if you are interested please send money to my cash app cash.Me/CEONX and if you’re interested in buying from Honeypot here are the locations where they are sold.

If you’re struggling with your MLM products here’s what you should do

As a person who was in several multi-level marketing companies over the years and have failed every one of them, it’s very rare that I’ve ever Join another MLM, however considering the fact that I have worked for not one but two successful companies that have helped me strategize on what I can do to at least not recruit but sell the products if the opportunity ever came to me.

Two of the best companies that I actually work for that I was able to successfully make a significant change in my lifestyle, it has everything, from guaranteed income, a flexible schedule you can literally work when you want, maybe not from the comfort of your own couch though however, you can work from the comfort of your car or your favorite location, like Starbucks, McDonald’s the gym, you can even travel the world just as long as you follow the law of every state it’s the best company to join if you are struggling in an MLM.

These companies give awesome bonuses and referral commissions and the best part is if your friends are family members don’t have this service you can refer them and get discounts for referring them, and the perks are phenomenal you get discounts on gas, phone bill, you can even get affordable health insurance this is one of those things where if you do enough work you can actually make a living spend time with your family and make as much as you want during all seasons and the best part about it it’s completely FREE.

Okay so if you haven’t guessed it by now as mentioned before in my other previous blogs I deliver for Uber and Postmates I have also done to work with field agent and I’ve also been working with brand ambassador which is a pretty good app for influencers.

Back to Uber and Postmates, these are very great platforms to you if you need to get rid of excess product and make sales especially with Postmates because Postmates is more versatile they deal Duane Reade, grocery stores you name it so as you make these deliveries you can place whatever product you’re selling as long as it reflects what they’ve just bought gives me a sample as to compare and contrast this is something I probably would have done had I had the resources that it takes to be in an MLM.

With any business, you do it takes the right strategy and creativity all in all whether it’s Uber, Postmates, wonolo, field agent anything in the gig economy, these apps have made it easier now to make a living and not drive your friends, family and yourself crazy.

In conclusion, when you work for Uber or Postmates or any other companies that I have mentioned and listed it’s an opportunity to get real income coming in rather than going out and the only things that you may have to purchase is a vehicle and a portable charger.

Bear’s Den Pizza 24 hours to hell and back

Gordon Ramsay set aside out of Pizzeria bear Den Pizza in a college town in Conway Arkansas owned by Brad and Steven they are co-owners of Bruster’s and Bears Pizza Den

Brad is conservative has a wife and family, Steven is it happy with a clear substance abuse problem which is causing problems not only in the business but in a friendship as well Steven has spent his time at the restaurant destroying the foundation poking holes and breaking furniture the decor is ripped and the kitchen does not have a working stove as a pizza oven and a microwave.

As you first walk into the restaurant a couple things that are noted

  • Drinking on the job
  • Filthy Grill
  • Microwave food
  • Poorly stored food (canned cheese)
  • Infestation
  • Uncalibrated freezer
  • Inventory unaccounted for

After Gordon takes off his hippie disguised he takes a guest outside to show everyone what is going on Brad meets the crew at Hell on Wheels.

After talking to the employees it is apparent that Brad is not in control of the situation Brad has allowed Steven to take control over Bears Den which has lead to disastrous results for the point where the employees we’re ready to quit because of Stevens Behavior.

After a drastic look at the kitchen Gordon makes it clear to them that they need to step it up and clean everything in the kitchen in order to move forward and that’s exactly what they do.

While the team is preparing the restaurant the cooks are learning the new menu Gordon decides to sit with Brad and explain to him that he needs to remove Steven from the restaurant after talking to Brad Cordon set aside at Steven who is dealing with substance abuse and depression from his failed is among other things he tries to convince Gordon that he quit drinking but Gordon knows better.

As relaunch is approaching Brad and Gordon try to convince Steven to step back Brad offers Steve a role as a silent partner so he can check himself into a rehabilitation center Which is how anyone employer or partner should conduct business.

With the new kitchen and the decor looking amazing the doors are finally open relaunch however the chef still need a little more training but with the house of Gordon and his team the Pizza makers bounce back and with that they end the night on a great note and a successful relaunch

Three months later they’re doing pretty well and Steven is doing a lot better.

In conclusion when you’re running a business with someone you have to hold each other accountable when something is not being done that includes letting anything’s pass and when it comes to issues so sensitive as substance abuse you have to handle it with love and compassion.

Gordon Ramsay 24 hours to hell and back the park Restaurant and Bar

This episode of Gordon Ramsay’s 24 hours to hell and back Gordon sets his sights to Oak Park, CA, to save the Park Restaurant and Bar owned and operated by Kirin and Angelita Stone.

706 Lindero Canyon Rd #752, Oak Park plaza oak park, CA 91377

Opened in 2017 they’ve been through a lot of trials and tribulations due to the wildfires in Oak Park in 2019 when they lost their home because of it since then they haven’t been able to attract enough attention to keep the doors open as a result he let go of his GM and his executive chef which proved to be disastrous.

When he’s not running a restaurant is a host of a show called The fixers (2019) a One-hour high-stakes reality series in which an “A-team” of experienced builders travels around the world to remote locations in significant need.

However, without proper leadership, the restaurant is doing terrible so Gordon decides to see what’s wrong with the place from self and while he plays a firefighter.

He enlists the help of football legend Rob Gronkowski to distract everyone else from his disguise as Captain Frank.

When you first enter the restaurant it seems more like a beach bar then anything else the decor is Bland and the food looks like it came out of Grease pit after Gordon reveals himself Katie the bartender who should be the GM immediately starts crying out of sheer embarrassment.

Gordon goes to the whole slideshow of what’s going on behind closed doors which is a lack of leadership poor rotation of food and negligence from the owner and the only ones that have it together are the employees the 2 Cooks, however, do need a little bit more supervision.

During the review of the front and back of the house, it’s discovered that the maintenance of the kitchen has par-cooked been clean in over a month on top of that par-cooked medium-rare chicken cross-contaminated with Brussel sprouts which cause bacteria to seep into the chicken making it inedible the and lastly blood-soaked chicken, the response from the Kirin was as if it wasn’t his problem because he doesn’t deal with the kitchen so he wouldn’t know what to look for.

After discussing the business with Kirin and his wife Gordon is convinced that maybe the restaurant is not a priority for him and you should just step way, now to be clear one of the purposes of owning your business is time freedom and with a good team the restaurant can be salvaged which is an argument that Gordon does make however he prefers that owners be more involved in the restaurant then none at all.

After the 2 Cooks are tried and tested through the new menu Gordon sides to hire a chef Ozzy who won the burger challenge.

After rocky dinner service, Gordon leaves satisfied however the update to the story is Chef Ozzy was never hired by Kirin and he made it seem like he never showed up to work the next day and Kevin followed right after unfortunately Kirin and Angelita are separated but they tell have good reviews online.

Shaw Academy

A couple months ago I signed up for Shaw Academy I studied social media marketing four 4 months this is pretty much my thoughts on Shaw Academy.

The first 4 weeks are free at every month after that you have to pay for while I admit I was ready to quit the first month by the time it was $60 a month and an additional $240 for the final certifications and toolkit

The learning material itself is generic and outdated, the customer service is nonexistent it’s impossible to get through they never email mail you unless you quit and the only receipt you get are on your bank statements any certificates you have to download it or print it out.

If I could suggest anything I’d suggest going with skillshare or 360 training at the end of day invest in yourself
