Going back to my humble beginnings as a blogger, when I truly caught the bug, I wanted to start featuring people and their talents to the world by writing a short post about them on my website: Spotlight Feature. Larry Bubb happened to be at the right time time when I had this idea.

I have the pleasure of knowing Larry as a teenager, when he came by my church in San Diego, Ca at Coronado Southern Baptist Church. Larry Bubb is traveling a gospel musician and comedian–traveling to 30 states across country sharing the good news about his best friend Jesus Christ. Not only has he made appearances on television and radio shows, but has made long lasting impressions on the people he has performed for. His music and whimsical humor has helped people bridge their relationship to God much closer, and has impressed famous stars such as Hollywood Actress and Academy Award Nominee, Angela Basset.

“I was so uplifted after hearing Larry’s message as he employs his gifts of humor & song along with practical Biblical instruction. He will especially bless the hearts of young adults, relating the word of God in a truly engaging manner.” –Angela Bassett

Thank you Larry for sharing the good news with me about your best friend Jesus Christ, and continue to make the world smile through your music and humor. To read my post on him, please click on the link below.

Motivation Monday: Evolve the Art of Storytelling


It’s Monday, the beginning of a new week, and you need words of motivation to start your week off right.

This week’s words of motivation: Evolve the Art of Storytelling

In this 3 minute TED talk video, we see iPad storyteller and entrepreneur, Joe Sabia, give an inspirational talk on the history of storytelling; and how technology was able to advance it thanks to German author, Lothar Megendoffer. Sabia does not only do a phenomenal job of storytelling (detailing each part of his story with powerful visuals), but an excellent job in conveying his point across.

“The art of storytelling has remained unchanged. And for the most part the stories are recycled. But the way humans tell the stories has evolved with pure, and consistent novelty.”

–Joe Sabia

Stories are what keeps the world spinning. And I am so fortunate that I am able to use my writing, and my website, as a platform to share people’s stories across the world via the web. 

*I invite all of you to check out my “Interesting People” section and read the amazing stories that I have amassed since I first produced my website to the world! 

Thank you Megendoffer for giving me, and the world, the Megendofferitis: to make our stories come to life. If you hadn’t said “Genug ist Genug,” then our stories would have never reached the medium to where it is today.

So this week, evolve the art of storytelling–and catch the Megendofferitis. Instead of sharing your story face to face, grab a phone and video stream your story online and make your story come to life. Utilize social media to make your story (and/or your product’s story) come to life!

ThrowBack Thursdays: Roy AfriQue, Promoter and CEO of AfriQue Events


Every Thursday I post a miscellaneous article that I have written in the past or an interview of an extraordinary person.

This week’s ThrowBack Thursdays: Roy Afrique, Promoter and CEO of AfriQue Events

20130826-205710.jpg

The first time that I met Roy AfriQue was when I first moved here to the city of Boston. Making friends very quickly during the first few weeks of my stay, I was very fortunate enough to be invited to a birthday party which Roy AfriQue was hosting. It only took one party, and one encounter to realize how cool he was–and still is.

His swag is like no other in the city of Boston–He is one of those few people who knows how to bring Sexy Back. He is the only African promoter (Uganda) in Boston that is putting people first before leisure, for over 5 years–“It’s all about relationships and customer service,” he says. Not only is he an established businessman, but a gentleman to the ladies–he doesn’t need much to impress a lady. He is the best promoter in Boston, and I am so lucky that I got to work under his wing for a short time period.

Prince’s Daily Journal proudly endorses him for any party that you are having–whether it be birthday parties or anniversaries. Roy can even help you find your perfect match!–Read his interview!

Motivation Monday: Learn from 404 pages; Don’t Ignore Them


It’s Monday, the beginning of a new week, and you need words of motivation to start your week off right.

This week’s words of motivation: Learn from 404 pages; Don’t Ignore Them

In this 4 min TED talk video, we see media strategist, Reeny Gleeson, talk on the most common and annoying incidence that has ever befallen on Internet users everywhere: the dreaded 404 page. Not only does Gleeson educate us on “what is a 404 page,” but teaches us how 404s can actually be beneficial in our own lives.

404 pages, as Gleeson tell us, is another way of saying, “that you fell through the cracks“; you made a mistake. Rather than having a beautiful picture that rewards us for finding the right page, we instead receive an ugly page for the mistake that we made. However, instead of ignoring 404 pages, Gleeson and his group of start ups turned it into an opportunity: to create interactive 404 pages. Not only was his team able to create fun and interactive 404 pages, which then turned into a contest for $404, but they learned a valuable lesson:

“Those little things, done right, actually matter. And that well-designed moments can build brands” –Renny Gleeson

To me, 404 pages are like the mistakes that we have in our lives; they teach us what we should do and not do. But if we choose to ignore our mistakes, or 404 pages, then we will never find innovative ways to succeed and create something spectacular. Remember that the light bulb was invented by a mistake (and plenty of them).

So this week don’t treat mistakes like 404 pages. Be innovative and creative; that’s how we learn from our mistakes.
