By now you might have heard the controversy surrounding Beyoncé from people like Rudy Giuliani calling her halftime show an “outrageous affront to police” to people arguing over this issue on Facebook + Twitter. But I was honestly shocked by those using LinkedIn as a place to discuss the horror of Beyoncé’s intent (their opinion). I thought she did a good thing, and let’s not talk about the surge in Red Lobster sales since her single dropped! The owner of the thread became defensive when others suggested she move the hate (my words, not theirs) to Facebook. See a snapshot of the LinkedIn exchange below.

The #Nando25 Challenge Idea: The Creative Process can drive us and motivate us to do great things from writing our first blog post to writing our first book, but the question is–“Does the creative process drive us or is it the other way around?” I’ve teamed up with my friend and Creative Coach Nathan Seven Scott who will give you insights into his creative process and how he’s managed to write 6 manuscripts in under a year. His first book, My Turn, was reviewed on-air by Wendy Williams who had sexy things to say about Nathan’s hot + steamy serial killer series.
You can apply these tips to help in whatever creative projects you’re doing, trust me. After I created this video with Nathan, I rushed home, wrote down his tips + reshaped my own creative process/cycle. He’s inspired me to really “get it” and set it to motion! Are you looking for a creative group? Are you looking for a creative coalition? What about having a creative curriculum? Watch this before you take one more step…or have one more thought!

The #Nando25 Challenge Idea: I’m sure you’ve heard of “7 minutes in Heaven” right? Where you get stuck in a closet with another person and you “get to work” by any means necessary, resulting in good times. Well, this is NOTHING like that–so get your mind out of the gutter. I’m twisting the concept around and want you to think about what it’s like to be royalty. How do you see yourself? As a Queen? or a King? Some of you might have to start out small…maybe a Prince. But imagine what it would feel like to wearing a crown with precious jewels and be the ruler of YOU land. How would that change how you walk, talk + react? I’m talking major self-esteem boost here. I’m talking self improvement! Well, then let’s put on our crowns, baby! And it only takes 8 minutes. I’ll explain how in the video.

The #Nando25 Challenge Homework: As of today, take 8 mins to prep yourself before “crowning yourself” and write in your #Nando25 Day Challenge journal words that will prep: “ambitious, courageous, smart, bright, sexy, contagiously funny, spontaneous and adorable.” Also, start wearing your crown and being fully present to that feeling. What are some of the results that are happening? (Write down at least 3).
