Confession time…. Sorry to disappoint, but it isn’t as juicy as the title may have led on… I looked in my fridge the other day… I had been hard at work for hours. I had been poundin’ away at the keys for longer than I even know. I had gotten up to wrangle my boys a few times, but I was in the zone. I was feeling hungry and a bit thirsty… when I opened the fridge and noticed there was nothing to drink in the fridge besides my boys’ juices and some milk and on the top shelf, Rockstars and Coke… I had actually gotten so consumed in my work and keeping up with my boys that day that I didn’t realize until it was about an hour till their dinner time and all I had put in myself was Rockstars and Coke… I had a day where I was in a zone… I was literally juggling tending to my boys all day… which if you have ever met them, I assure you, there’s no way your kids could keep up with the energy level of my boys. Our two wonderful boys are so amazing… but they are fast. I mean really fast… anyways. I had managed to keep up with them, made them breakfast, lunch, tended to little bumps and bangs as they happen, and even managed to get them to clean up their toys after plating… all of this while I poundin’ away at my laptop all day. I just kept my laptop open and kept on runnin’. I was hustlin’ and in the zone… I managed to feed them but never feed myself… I know we have all been there, but it isn’t good for us.

A lot of my tips and advice is directed to you as I am hoping to help and encourage you with the knowledge I have gained from my years of experience running my own businesses and helping others with theirs… but this one I am directing at us as it is something I take seriously only sometimes and others…. Well…

We have got to take care of ourselves. It is so important that we are mindful of what we are eating… or even more importantly we need to be sure we aren’t so consumed with work that we don’t eat. You must take those moments to care for yourself and make sure that all the fight and drive you are putting into your business… that you’ll be around and healthy to reap the benefits of all your victories.

That’s it…short and sweet… Just keep some perspective. At the end of the day, you’re adults for crying out loud… you got this.

Till next time, homies… Peace & Hair Grease
