How’s this for some inspiration?

"Swizz Beatz may have made millions of dollars already, has numerous awards and hits under his belt, and has served as Creative Director for companies like Reebok and Lotus Cars, but despite all of his success, he feels as though he was missing one thing –his education.   The producer is now enrolled in Harvard University’s Business School at the age of 35, where he is taking courses while living on campus in a small dorm room.”

On why he decided to go back to school:
I just felt like you have to keep graduating your brand. A lot of people get complacent with their success and things that they’ve done before and I just wasn’t comfortable with that because I started transitioning from producer to business owner. I would be in these rooms and, no matter how big the deal was or how good it is, people would still look at me like ‘Oh, he’s the rapper guy. He’s the rapper friend.’ I’m like, ‘We all in this meeting because of what I’m bringing to the table.’ But being that I didn’t really have any credentials to go with those different things, I didn’t feel like I was getting the respect that I deserved. So I said, ‘You know what, let me go and sharpen my pencil a little bit and really walk back in these rooms a different person and different man.’ Really invest that time into myself because I started when I was like 18. I was gone since then. And a lot of different things I would learn and do just off the cuff, but I really didn’t know the language. I didn’t feel comfortable with the language of doing business.

Much much respect pimpin, I like his thought process yo, that’s exactly why I switched my education game up. Salute.

Sex appeal on a trillionnnnnnnn.

Get that degree, boo. Live that dorm life.

Happy 4th everyone!

27th birthday

I’ll be turning 27 soon and compiled a list of things to do my last week of being 26 and things to do when I’m twenty 27.

Things I leave behind: bad karma, bad debt, bad vibes and bad people.

Things I look forward to: good karma, new places, new people and new opportunities.

Planning for a trip to England and a house this year. Always looking up, never down.
