Amazing, inspiring, fun, friend making, friend supporting, contact making uplifting empowering trip. Lots of love, laughter, people full of life.
Welcome to L.A.
First time flying since 9-11.
My flight to L.A. was so early, my flight left 20 minutes before the baggage check in staff were to open.
With it being an early flight and the airport two hours away, I took Mom’s suggestion and found a hotel that allowed me to leave my car at the hotel and shuttle me to and from the airport.
Actually pretty decent: Thanks to several people I know, who do fly, and who gave great advice. It also made it easier to have a carry-on only. No wait for bags at baggage claim. Overall, flight to and from were fine. TSA wait time both ways were approx 10 minutes. As far as flying, I have always been fine with the actual flying, Overall flying experience, since I had not flown since before 9-11 and TSA, it was fine.
Lesson from Flying and TSA:
My fears and preconceived ideas on TSA were unfounded. Yes, at certain times, the line can be long, however, agree or disagree that TSA should be in operation or the current rules in place, they are here. And once we accept that and most people know, and follow the rules, going thru TSA is one more step in the process to flying.
Staying with friends vs. staying at the hotel.
Traffic in L.A. is crazy. Driving from the hotel to Billionaire’s office would have been a logistical nightmare and waste of time to reconnect every day. Billionaire was kind to offer a free place to stay. Benefits: Money saver, allows for more time to be spent with connect with more people.
Great friends are a blessing and add to your wealth and I am definitely blessed and wealthy. I was able to meet many wonderful people in person, spend time with and get to know. To all the people I met and spent time with in L.A., I thank your love and kindness.
Meeting my cousin:
6 years and a trip to L.A.: It was a true blessing to meet with McKenzie again. She is a sweet lady and her energy warms the room. My true blessing and gratitude was introducing McKenzie and Billionaire. Both are doing incredible work to help kids. Check out Playworks.org. I believe they can and will work together in the future.
Time moves quickly. Appreciate family; reach out to them, whether they respond often or not. Let them know someone cares for them. Send them a note of inspiration and saying you care. Have no expectation of contact in return. As we walk thru life and meet people, let us connect people who we believe may be able to uplift and support one another.
Birthday Party / Launch Party:
Billionaire P.A. is amazing. It was his birthday party and a party to launch his newest short film / music video. It was way more than your typical birthday party. He hosted a “Wealthy Wednesday’ event which is very inspirational and supportive. “Wealthy Wednesday” events are where you tell what you’re doing to execute your dream. It also is a great way to connect with people who can and will support you and whom you can support. There were speakers and singers. There was a 16 yo DJ who also was given the spotlight to sing (which was being a singer is one. And sing he did. Look for more from PJ on the future.
One of the best features: after speaking your dream, Billionaire asks what you need to help you live your dream. Then, asks everyone in attendance, if there is anyone with those skill sets. It is up to you to connect with those people.
I told my story of how Billionaire and I met, how I came to support him, speak my dream, and how I am executing my dream. Standing in front of a group of people and speaking is outside my comfort zone. We only grow outside out comfort zone.
“With God at my back and Billionaire and Wealthy Minds at my front, I can only stand upright and move forward.” Robert Overstreet
The energy is incredible, powerful, uplifting, full of love. It used to be difficult for me to walk up to people, introduce myself and start a conversation. Thanks to Billionaire’s Wealthy Minds events, they have given me the courage to introduce myself and improve my networking skills.
Driving around L.A. with Billionaire preparing for the party gave me a great appreciation for all the hard work that takes place behind the scenes. He was kind to tell me every time we were in another town in L.A. Actually, I stayed confused to the exact location all day. I did periodically use the GPS on my phone to give me an idea. It was a lot of work, yet, it was fun hanging out with him. He had fun driving thru as many different towns as possible so that I can say I was in every town around L.A.
Things that make you go hmmm…
While running around L.A. with billionaire gathering cakes, supplies, and organizing people for the party, something happened that made me stop and catch my breath.
One of the many addresses we stopped was “1942”.
Later in the evening, we stopped by the music studio, where he found the other DJ to work his party. While there, we met a young couple who were recently married. Their wedding date: “August 8th”.
My dad was born August 8, 1942.
Mr. Zo Williams is genuine, a good man with a beautiful heart and soul. Also, I am honored to have met Bobby Glanton-Smith, Hassan-Karim McCullough (founder of OUI Juice), and Chris Purnell. I listened / watched “The Zo What? Morning Show” live from the green room. I have great respect for all that Zo and his crew are doing to improve humanity. They take on all types of topics and go where many are afraid to go. I had a good time meeting Zo and the crew at the studio and see where the show is recorded.
Lesson: Reaffirms why I support Zo and his mission.
Friendships / Relationships:
Billionaire P.A. and I connected thru his passion and company he created “Wealthy Minds”. I have an extreme amount of love and respect for Billionaire for living his dream of motivating and inspiring all people to live their dream and to teach them the power of a wealthy mind. There have been many who have left the life of negativity, many keep on walking, it is the exception who are reaching back and helping the rest of us. Billionaire is exceptional!! I am proud to call him friend and brother.
Life is fun walking around town with Billionaire. Our friendship is confusing to many (being of different races and our age difference). I like to believe that although people are shocked, people are inspired. When we live with an open heart and open mind, we will be a amazed and blessed at the people with whom we connect.
We are spiritual beings having a human experience. Once we get past the outside and connect with people for what’s on the inside, we attract and connect with beautiful people around the world.
The reactions are funny, our friendship is a great example that when we open our hearts and minds, we open up the possibility to some fantastic friendships. Billionaire and I like to tell people we are brothers (brothers from another mother) and ask people if they see the family resemblance. The look on people’s face is priceless.
“We all come from different walks of life, that doesn’t mean we can’t walk together”. Billionaire P.A.
Billionaire made a statement about relationships that is spot on, that made total sense, and really made things clear for me.
Each person you meet, work your way back (he said 10 people) through how you met that person. As you realize you meet quality people because of one person in particular, you will value that person’s relationship even more.
Completely explains why I value my relationship more and feel a strong bond, friendship, and appreciation with Zo Williams and Billionaire P.A.
I appreciate Billionaire for making the choice to not schedule anything the two days following the party, so we could hang out and have fun.
Most importantly he took a day for himself. Billionaire deserved the time off. He does so much for so many, it was good to watch him relax.
And I appreciate him and Serrano for showing me around L.A.
They took me to numerous places (Hollywood blvd, Santa Monica Pier, Mel’s Diner, The Grove), to name a few. I’ll have to go back for more.
I am thankful for all the people I met, spent time with, getting together with different ones and being shown around and just having a really good time. As I grow thru the years, it does not matter what we do or where we are, I find the most fun in being with people with good hearts and souls.
Thank you everyone who I saw, met, made friends with, hung out with, who gave me a place to stay. Thanks for the love, laughter, positive energy, inspiration, and the great times!!!
God Bless each and every one.
