Sex sells…sorta.

While sexy pics and selfies are popular, get the views and get the likes… they are not all that solid in converting to sales for the smaller echelon artist or product. 

with out the right branding and content, all that gets viewed, liked and shared is the image or video while the call to action is non existent as the brand and the sell is missing entirely.   

*LS*
Leveraging Smart by branding all your content with your brand and your call to action to allow people to like, share or view the sexy stuff as you lead them to the sales stuff.

The higher the profile, the higher the hype, the higher the target. 

You want to put out lyrics that talk about how you are a badass drug dealer that kills, does drugs and shows everyone up with lyrics like:
“be with them killers”
“Hit you with the best block in your tank top”
“Shoot at…. and die for me”
“They load of that Smith (Blow)”

Lyrics from #chinx   who was killed over the weekend.

Just because you have have moved on, doesn’t mean those you stepped on, stepped over and pissed off have forgotten it. 

Its a volatile and screwed up world, but even the richest and most successful people with bodyguards and security can’t stop someone hell bent on revenge. 

Take your actions, your words and lyrics to heart for the long haul regardless of how much success you see for the sake of your life.

Camoflauge
Doe B
Tupac Shakur
Blade Icewood

Jam Master Jay

The only hard cover copy of my book

A friend told me they were able to find my book in the library of congress. I found the Library of Congress copy of The Artists Guide while in DC yesterday for a meeting. Kind of a trip!.

Not easily accessed. Had to get a LOC reader identification card, then fill out a request form, then sit at a table and wait for the book to be found.

Still, it was cool to see.

If you know you need to do something. Do it. 

Its that easy and that simple. Yet it seems to elude many. 

You are smarter than you give yourself credit for. When you recognize what you should be doing but choose not to do it, you are only hurting yourself and your chances at success and not leveraging the smart in you. 

Execute the actions that will lead to your success instead of hoping a shortcut will take care of business or someone else will magically get it done for you.

Be nice to your opener. 

You have no idea what might happen in the near future for them. 

Just because you might have a higher following at the moment, doesn’t mean they might not surpass you down the line. 

Play nice with everybody and you will get to play that much more often. 

You never know what will happen with those you open for or those opening for you.

*LS*
Leveraging smarter decisions with respect and without arrogance will leverage that many more opportunities and connections.

Are you experienced?

And if not or not as of yet, why the hell do you lie and claim to have it?

Its impossible to be an “expert” with no experience and yet with social media, over hyped videos and life coaching quotes, aspiring professionals are claiming to be overnight experts. 

This isn’t going to change and has only gotten worse in recent years, but if you have any type of moral compass, stop claiming to be more than you are or being able to do more than you can to those that are looking for services you are not completely knowledgeable on and truly can’t execute or provide. 

On the other side of the fence. Dig deeper. 

Stop buying in to the bullshit. 
Stop looking for those that are telling you what you want to hear 
Stop believing things at face value.

Start looking at the facts, the methods and the results. 
Start looking and researching the people you want to be involved with. 
Start looking for people posting applicable information, real tips with real direction over fluff job quotes to stroke your ego, that keep you running in circles. 

Its all about Leveraging Smart. 
You’re smarter than you think. 

To the customer: Make it work for you by not buying in to the instant expert thats only experience has come from them making it up. 

To the supplier: Build your resume on reality instead of fantasy.

If you can’t ask the question, why the hell do you think you deserve the answer? 

Got Questions? Ask. Don’t assume 

If you need to know something, want to know something or are unclear on something, then ask the person that can give you the answer. 

Stop playing weak, passive games, 
expecting someone to read your mind 
or give you information you haven’t directly or confidently asked for. 

Got questions? 

Ask!

Don’t sit back and assume you deserve an answer, especially if you haven’t clearly presented a question to be answered. 

Take charge of your life, your business, your career and your goals by stepping up and getting the right information and the answers to address the questions you are having. 

Its all about leveraging smart over waiting, being passive, not asking and assuming everything will be handed to you.

You're still going to have to do the work.

You can walk every #‎redcarpet, pose with every #‎celebrity, take thousands of #‎selfies, sneak in to every party, hand out and collect every business card…

but you still have to do the work, prepare your product and build your brand.

Yes, networking is one part of the big picture, but there is a lot more that has to be done. And focusing on only being at every event, party or show is not an effective use of time.

Leverage the smartest time management for the best results.

Because being seen everywhere isn’t getting you anywhere when you have nothing ready to show. #‎LeveragingSmart Ideas

If you cant say it to someones face, maybe you shouldn't say it behind their back.

Showcase honesty and honor in a world where so many two faced people are running around like fools.

Stop asking for change and start making change 

There is a world of difference and world of results in those that say “We Need Change” and those that are executing the actions to make change or begin change.  

Plenty of people call for change, want to see change, say change is needed or explain why change is important. 

Yet, so few are ready to do the work, make the change or take the first steps of action to create that change. 

Its as if they just expect some one else to make it happen and all they have to do is say its needed. 

Wake up. You want change, then be a part of it and find a way to begin change. 

Too many people want all the results, but aren’t prepared to do the actual work or put in the real effort to create it. The smallest efforts, the most basic steps can create a foundation and a start.

If you really want change, stop asking for it, stop calling for it and start creating it. 

Bridge the gap from where things are to where you want them by starting to build an actual bridge.

Completely disappointed with the service, the professionalism, the prices and the food. Two days earlier, we reserved on open table, only to get a call four hours later stating our time was no longer available. Upon visiting to see about availability, a very nice woman was able to get us a table for Friday night. She was professional and on top of it, but the rest of the experience was nothing short of horrible. Going upstairs to the bar to wait for our table, we began to sit down at the bar, where the bartender barked at us that the seat was taken and then ignored us for five minutes. I understand about seats being taken, but the reaction was rude, uncalled for and insulting. In going back down stairs, we were sat very nicely at a table outside for drinks. The woman at the front even lit the heater and got us a couple drinks and our table a little early. That was the highlight of the night. After that the service was incredibly slow and it was at point where the room was far from capacity. The burratta dish was bland and liquidish and the steak was less than average. The prices no where near matched the quality and I am very confused as to all the high marks. We were advised that it was a hit or miss place and it was with no doubt a miss. The atmosphere is very nice, the wine selection is broad and solid, but the experience as a whole was not worth the time or the expense. We really wanted to have a great experience and a great dinner, but it did not happen.

Fresh shrimp, tasty scallops, excellent clams and delicious mussels on top of a bed of creamy risotto with this terrific cream sauce. Top notch taste and a great sized serving. The Dulce de Leche bread pudding is so good, its just wrong! Great staff, fun atmosphere and a good time all around.

By far the coolest name for a pit stop type store. Very clean bathrooms, nice people working there, but most of all, just gotta love the name.

On the book tour, we were half way out on Long Island and had a Boston date the next day. The Cross Sound Ferry saved us a great deal of time and traffic hassles, by shooting directly over to New London. Basic Ferry service, but helps you avoid NYC traffic all together if you need to be up in New England.

This is a great down and dirty Irish pub. Much more than just the student hang out some think it is. Good menu, great drinks and a great feel. Harpo made this place the right way and everytime I can get back, I stop in.

It was amazing to see it first hand and walk around Dealy Plaza. The displays are well put together and bring back a piece of history, but it also is very one sided and doesnt take in to consideration the aspects of the controversy surrounding the reports. The photos are amazing, the view from the seventh floor is incredible and strange all at once, but again, the information seems very tempered to the single gunman theory and lacks the consideration of all the different reports.

Great displays and great information about the history of rock and roll. Just dont get wound up in who deserves what or where this person should be placed or how that person isnt mentioned. The displays are well put together and its a great experience if you enjoy it for what is there and not try to complain about what...in your opinion...is missing.
