How I got over my recent Depressive Phase

I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder when I was 16 years old and I’ve lived with it for 12 years now. I’m very self-aware, and I’ve taken the time to understand how this affects me and figured out ways to cope. However, I still find myself going through a depressive phase on a regular basis. Too often, I put the needs of my mental health far lower on my list of priorities than it needs to be. …

The struggles and obstacles faced by entrepreneurs during the pandemic have, understandably, proved to be the end for so many businesses. With nearly 100k businesses having to permanently close their doors, many entrepreneurs are now wondering what it must take to push through external adversity when it’s rearing its ugly head. One Chicagoan, in particular, has turned these obstacles into opportunities, just as she has done many times before.

Kay’Chanel has had her mind focused on success since she found herself pregnant and homeless at the age of 16. She started doing hair in 2011 after her mom gave her…


One of the very first questions that musicians consider when starting their career is whether to be independent or attempt to get signed to a label. Artists who want to keep the majority of their profits, maintain all rights to their masters, and have complete creative control would greatly benefit from going independent. But with this independence cause the responsibility of being business savvy. Along with the music, independent artists must also handle their own bookings, public relations, rate sheets, negotiations, and so much more. …

The mental ramblings of a bad mom

I once read somewhere that life doesn’t come with a manual; it comes with a mother. Well, had I been given the option, I’d much rather have the manual. Now, before we go any further, I encourage you to grab a glass of wine and get comfortable; the story that I’m about to tell you certainly isn’t your average, happy-go-lucky Mother’s Day tribute. I apologize in advance for any triggers, but I need you to understand how I got here before I can give my confession.

As a child, my home life…


How Satoshi Art will lead the way

In the course of doing research for an article about businesses that are helping the black community, I stumbled upon something unique and quite unexpected. Hip hop superstar, actor, and business mogul, Waka Flocka, along with cryptocurrency genius and entrepreneur, Stally, have joined together with William Wang, a former hedge fund manager, on a new business venture within the NFT market. Unlike cryptocurrency, where one can be traded for another, NFT’s are each unique in nature with a single owner at a time. …


The anniversary of the death of George Floyd has sent me deeply searching for brands, businesses, and public figures that are building up the Black community. Ma’Khia Bryant’s murder is only the most recent event in the series of episodes depicting the problems faced by black Americans. These events have sent shockwaves around the world; however, we’re starting to question how many are still as determined to stand for change as they claim to be a year ago. And even more, how many people were fighting for racial justice, equality, and empowerment long before it was the cool thing…


How I started my first business with no money

Starting a business is HARD, not to mention the costs that are associated with it. As most aspiring owners, I planned on saving a large sum of cash before I quit my job and started my business. Life, on the other hand, had other plans for me.

I was laid off from my job a little more than two years ago and, as a result, had to lay off my nanny. I made the decision that I’d have to start a business with no money (because I had no money) and…


Without a doubt, public relations has GOT to be one of the most misunderstood and thankless jobs that I’ve ever had. Make no mistake; I absolutely love being a publicist; nonetheless, I’m not naive about what I signed up for.

After being laid off from my job in 2019 and laying off my nanny, I was forced into a position where I had no choice but to make an income from home. I had been starting books and leaving them unfinished on my laptop for years, so I decided it was time to publish. While researching ways to promote self-published…
