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.
TSA experience: 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”.
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!!!
“You are not obligated to continue a childhood friendship all thru adulthood. You will grow by lettering go.” Robert Overstreet
There are a few people who are lifetime friendships. Those are icing on the cake of life. The friends we have that do not last a lifetime are just as important and valuable. The fun part about our life’s journey is meeting people along the way. Some become friends, others become acquaintances, others are interesting encounters. Each of us has our own path and journey.
My 20s was a time of learning more who I am and finding my place in this world. 20s friendships tend to be a bit fluid and that’s ok. Into my 30s and 40s I became more secure in who I am and my place in this world. Now, in my 50s, I have friends who have found their place and comfortable with who they are. Friendships in my older years are more stable and last longer.
When your friendship becomes a challenge and it is difficult to work thru problems, it is time to evaluate where each of you are on your life’s journey. It is okay and mature to accept that your journey together has reached its natural course. Accept the reality, wish your friend well, and let them move on.
Take the time to listen to each person you meet. Treasure the information they provide. Everyone who enters our life, as our life enters other people’s lives, have something to offer. These are life experiences for us to laugh, learn and grow.
How does Conflict Resolution apply to living a positive life?
Unresolved conflict leads to stress. And when you are stressed, it leads to negative thoughts and energy. When you learn to resolve conflicts and especially respectfully, you are then able to bring peace and happiness into your life. This leads to positive energy.
Conflict is a natural part of relationships. As relationships grow, we learn more about each other and our differences in beliefs. Most of the differences are non threatening and are our life experiences that make us who we are. When our friend / spouse / loved one says or does something that bothers us, we need to take a deep breath, count to ten (wait till we are calm) before letting our loved one know how, what they did or said, made us feel. Refrain from being accusatory and confrontational. Be honest and straight forward, kind, polite, and respectful.
Good friends and loved ones want what is best for us. They love us unconditionally, and are our strength of support in good times and bad and help us grow. We need to see where our friend / loved one is coming from (put ourselve in their shoes). When we have a friend / loved one who actually has intention on making us feel bad, it’s time to reevaluate the relationship. See Cultivate within Garden of Great Friendships. Accept your loved one’s apology graciously and inlcude a big hug. Forgive and move on.
Always be open to receiving comments from friends / loved ones of something you said or did. Own up to what you said or did and apologize. We are human and somettimes we say or do things unintentional that hurts our loved ones feelings.
It is okay to agree to disagree. Some issues are sensitive topics and it does not mean either person loves each other any less. This means you are mature enough to say, I still love you and respect you AND mean it.
Personal experience: I had a friend that we had two distinct views on one topic. In the scheme of our friendship, we were there for each other when needed and we had full respect for each other. Some people said we sounded like a married couple becasue we would finish each others sentences. The reason the friendship ended was because my job relocated me across country. He had married and I was still single. It was a friendship in our 20s and in youth. Natural time to move on for both of us.
Choose your friends wisely, those who are positive, you can be yourself around and love and accept you for who whole self.
“Friends can help each other. A true friend is someone who lets you have total freedom to be yourself – and especially to feel. Or, not feel. Whatever you happen to be feeling at the moment is fine with them. That’s what real love amounts to – letting a person be what he really is.” Jim Morrison
“Whatever you happen to be feeling at the moment is fine with them. That’s what real love amounts to – letting a person be what he really is”. Jim Morrison
“We know from our experience that it is easier to develop trust in another person or in a group if we believe that we can disagree, and we will not be abandoned or hurt for our differences. It is difficult to trust those who deny us the right to be ourselves.” Susan Wheelan “An apology is the superglue of life. It can repair just about anything.” Lynn Johnston
The best part of being a good friend is being blessed with good friends. Friendships are like planting and growing flowers in a garden; you must plant the seeds, pick the weeds, cultivate, and provide nourishment (water and the sunshine).
Plant the seeds: be yourself and be honest. Friendships are based on honesty and trust. keep your promises. Always be available for your friends in good times and especially the bad times. Be a friend that can be counted on.
Pick the weeds: there will disagreements and issues will come up, good friends respect and trust each other so when issues arise, bring them up right away without accusation. Know that good friends have your back and if they know you are not happy or hurt, they will help lift you to a better place. As you will lift them up.
Cultivate: any and all time spent with friends should make you and them feel joyful. when you are with friends, make it a goal to make them laugh and see them smile. If they are slower than normal to smile or laugh, ask if everything is ok. watch for behavior changes and if anything is different follow up. Always tell your friends you them appreciate them. Compliment them on all the good they do.
Friendship is a two way street. Here you are being a great friend and you find you are doing all the supporting and lifting and none or little is being returned… it is time to reevaluate the friendship. It is ok to end friendships. People enter our lives for a purpose as we enter other people’s lives for a purpose. They are brought to help us learn and grow. Once the lesson has been learned, it is time to move on. Accept the end of a friendship with grace and dignity, wish them well and let go.
Nourishment: Time spent with friends: good friends can do anything together, anywhere and have a good time. After spending time with friends, you should feel refreshed, uplifted and happy. Be a source of strength when your friends are going thru challenging times. A good friend makes it their mission to see their friends are happy and doing well, as well as supports them on their journey to success.
Tell your great friends who support you and lift you up, more importantly, show them, you appreciate them.
Always count your blessings and be thankful for all the good people in your life.
A big thank you to all who believe in me and support me. I appreciate you all. I have been very blessed and am very excited about the next 50 years of my life. This is the beginning of a new journey.
I am honored and blessed to have met very motivated, inspiring and powerful people who have committed their life to uplifting other people. Especially the youth. Making this a better place to live for all. I believe there are many wonderful voices in this world who deserve to be heard. My dream is for this site to be a place where people can join and share their bio, social media, contact information, and promotional products (e.g., clothes, books, etc.).
This site will be a place where people can come and connect to positive energy who can help them grow in their journey on this earth.
To continue to be blessed with a good job and income (financial resources) to help those in need.
Live my life to be an inspiration to others.
To help The Billionaire P.A. and others like him share the message of positivity and inspiring and empowering others.
What is your dream?
This first blog is dedicated to my friends, long term and new. And all the inspirational people who have helped me become a better person.
