Tired of outrageous "reality" television and predictable plots?  Turn to the web for cutting edge episodic entertainment.  One of the hottest shows on the web these days is "CHICK."  CHICK is a comic drama that uses the superhero as a metaphor for exploring human potential. The web series follows the adventures of Lisa, a woman disillusioned with her life, as she sets out on a quest to realize what she believes is her destiny; to become a superhero. CHICK and its director Kai Soremekun recently won an Indie Soap Award for Best Director (others in the category included Robert Townsend).  Click here to check out CHICK today and discover the superhero within you!

Can you believe we're already into the second month of the year?  How are you coming with those goals you set for 2010?  I know I've already slipped up a little bit (swearing off sugar for good is really hard!).  I recently heard a sermon in which Pastor Olu Brown said there's nothing magical about the number 2010 - you'll get the same thing you had in 2009 unless you change your behavior.  Wow - I guess all my cute little "going to win in 2010" slogans aren't enough to get me to the finish line.  But, it's still early in the year, and I am determined to achieve my goals.  I hope you're still working towards yours as well.  As always, if there is anything I can do to help you meet your business goals, please feel free to call me! 
Yours truly,

Client Testimonal


 Thank you so much for your effort in planning my speaking tour!  When we first discussed the plans, I thought it would just be a matter of placing a few phone calls.  I was horrified when we discovered that wasn't true unless I wanted to pay exorbitant prices, but your enthusiasm and "can do" attitude never even wavered.  You've found terrific alternatives within my price range, and you've been helpful in outlining the pros and cons of each option so I wouldn't be making decisions blindly.  


I would have torn my hair out if I'd had to handle making all of these plans, especially on such a short timetable, but you've delivered with grace and flair.  I wondered before we talked if I really needed help putting this tour together, but I know now without question that my business would have come to a complete standstill over the last few weeks if you hadn't been at the helm.   


Because you've been so on top of things, I never once doubted that everything would work out beautifully. 


I am so grateful for your leadership on this, and it's been fun working with you to put everything together.  In fact, I'm looking forward to planning round 2!

Thank you!
