Plus the cable TV venture is part of her production squad. There’s even a communications school with her name on it.

From dating advice, success tips and comedy clips, Harvey keeps extending his wings and reach. He knows growing a brand has a lot to do with spreading what you love doing, so much so that people send love back. He turned laughs from a corner of the streets into Kings of Comedy feats & Daytime TV treats.

Harvey shared an inspirational quote on social media that said “Sow your seed in the morning and at evening let your hands not be idle, for you do not know which one will succeed, whether this or that, or whether both will do equally.” It’s a recipe good for being on track and doing what it takes to run run run!

Another weekend of NFL games with lots going on. Some eyes are on Colin Kaepernick for his on-the-field play and off-the-field cause. Plus Dak Prescott is having a breakout year as the Cowboy’s rookie quarterback. He might be the newest NFL superman, but Beyoncé fans know she’s their superwoman.

According to USA Today, Prescott’s teammate Barry Church said “What makes him so impressive is that he is calm and cool…he is smart…he is beyond his years and I am excited he is with us.” Maybe those words are true for Bey too. They know reaching the goal line is less about status and more about stats.

It’s a case of great ones showing poise before tipping their hats. Recently, Beyoncé had to keep things going during a concert while suffering an injury on stage. In the back and forth of taking care of business Prescott’s handling those intangible assets. He’s made a believer in his teammates and they’re in him.

He’s also using game skills to score points. Prescott broke Tom Brady’s record for most passing attempts before an interception to start a career. Whether with skill points, style points, life points or paycheck decimal points, the great ones keep moving closer to the goal line. This makes their performance bounce.

The hot topic in football is if Dak will have to step back when Romo returns. We’ll see how things playout before the DakPac goes whack. They might take cues from the BeyHive. But for others trying to reach their goal line, Dak & Bey are reminders of how poise like the pros gives us the chance to strike a pose.

It’s another weekend on the NFL front. Few teams make a run others punt. Eyes on Kaepernick for his on-the-field play. Wanting to hear what he’s got to say. Plus Dak Prescott showing he’s got the goods. No ifs, ands, buts or shoulds. He getting NFL superman applaud. Bey fans love their superwoman unflawed.

So Prescott teammate Barry Church has his take. For why Prescott is the real deal not fake. Calm, cool and smart on his feet. Beyond his years ready to compete. Excited to have him on the squad. Maybe true words for Bey’s musical iPod. Reaching goal line as celebrity cats. Less about status more about stats.

A case of great ones showing poise. Tipping their hats through the noise. Bey having to keep it together on stage. Even when injured rocking like a sage. In the back and forth of the field. Taking care of biz for a higher yield. Handling intangibles like a star. Made a believer in his teammates that he’s a star.

Using game skills to score points. Tight passing and shaking-up the joints. Broke Brady’s record for rookie starter. Most passing attempts without interceptor. Skill points, style points in doing his thing. Life points, check points towards the ring. Great ones close-in on goal line. Performance aged like fine wine.

Hot topic in pro football talk. If Romo gotta take a walk. Dak’s on a roll since QB took hit. When he returns will he be fit? Let’s see then how things playout. Before DakPac has to jump and shout. Taking cues from BeyHive crew. Buzz like bees let-out the zoo. Goal line poise as the pros. A good chance to strike a pose.

Tip: Getting closer to the goal line takes poise by striking a pose, whether going vogue or going rogue.

Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg at age 83 is back on the Supreme Court. She ruffled some feathers over the summer but is trying to lay low. Also back is Jane Pauley as new host of CBS Sunday Morning. While Pauley is good for another round on TV, Tiger Woods says he’s not ready for a major golf tournament.

In a statement to fans Woods said “I will continue to strive to be able to play tournament golf. I’m very close, taking my game from the range to the course is the final hurdle, and with your continued support, I know I’ll get there.” He’s ready to get his groove back, but it’s gonna take more than a finger snap.

It’s getting kinda hectic as Woods went from top ranking to complete halt. But he’s pumped about taking his mojo from lame to game by not feeling defeated. After working day and night on his swing he hopes to return to past performances. He’s patiently focused on having power and magic again.

Pauley has had media ranking slips and slides too. In her mid-twenties she landed the co-host spot on NBCs Today Show. Since leaving the show there’ve been some lows and highs along the way. Now forty years later she’s got her groove back in a role that feels like going from last to having a wide-cast.

Pauley said to an AP writer “I was told that the word most consistently associated with my name was ‘authenticity.’ If they had said anything else, I would have gone ‘pooh.’ But authenticity? I said, ‘Yeah!’ For better or worse, I just didn’t know how to be anything but myself.” No matter what, that works every time.

Justin Ginsburg’s back on the block. Trying not to say anything to shock. Supreme Court back in session. A few ruffled feathers but still a lesson. Jane Pauley also on the upswing. CBS Sunday Morning her new thing. Good enough for doing TV again. While Tiger Woods not ready for stellar career to end.

Saying to fans in a statement online. Continuing to strive as health is fine. Not able to play the big game yet. But no need for folks to fret. Getting closer to go from range to course. That’s coming from him the main source. Ready to cross the hurdle, reinvent and rise. With a snap, crackle and pop surprise.

Gettin’ kinda hectic around here. Woods’ ratings went from top to fair. Now rough and ready to take his mojo. From scratch to hatch or lame to game flow. Working day and night on his swing stroke. Making sure his performance is woke. Focused on getting back the power. With game-time magic at any hour.

Pauley’s seen her own media slip. As rankings slide and a network skip. In her mid-twenties being Today Show host. Something she might cherish the most. Lows and highs along the way. Now she’s back on CBS Sunday. Forty years later taking on new role. From last to wide-cast, feeling good in her soul.

Pauley tells AP writer. How she kept going as a fighter. Word most used to describe her then and now. Was one of authenticity worn on her brow. If anything that hit her happy spots. For better or worse to connects the dots. No matter what it works every time. Mark her words for dropping wisdom and a dime.

Tip: The best way to reinvent your game and rise just the same is letting authenticity be the major reward.

Talkback: How much longer will it take before Tiger Woods gets his golf groove back?

What’s the difference between a movie inspired by Hollywood and one by Harlem? Well, it might be the score and plot. There may even be more realness in the back-story. That’s one reason why people are binge-watching Netflix. They’ll see Luke Cage & Jessica Jones characters streaming like hot superstars.

As a spinoff Cage is its own series. In talking about the writers, the show’s creator tells Time magazine “I called our writers’ room the Danger Room. When it came to ideas, ­everybody had their own power. There was beautiful conflict when it came to story.” They’re doing next level stuff and working as a tight squad.

In ‘X-men’ terms, Danger Room is the place where they train, fight and work out their powers. Mike Colter who plays Cage can relate. Born in SC, he spent time working-out his childhood dreams of becoming an actor. This took him from the ‘Low Country’ to the big screen in Clint Eastwood’s Million Dollar Baby.

From a role on the Good Wife, he’s off to some game-changing. He’s turning the story of Cage into a socially-conscious entertainment vibe with a brand new feeling in a special way. He’s bridging the gap of his dreams, showbiz and impacting community. That’s useful for reaching higher like cranes in the sky.

The Harlem hook to the storyline makes Cage a homeboy superhero. He isn’t so hung-up on his power that he’s lost his street cred. In one sense his strength is unbreakable. But in another it’s relatable. He’s a good ol’ dude who’s come up the rough side of the road. The next stop will be teaming-up as Defenders.

Difference in movie from Harlem & Hollywood? Few things, but it’s all good. A score that features hip-hop. Plot with drama non-stop. May even have more realness feel. In back-story and pop appeal. One reason for Netflix binge-watching. Luke Cage & Jessica Jones stunt-dropping.  Major league superstar-shopping.

Cage the spinoff making waves. A series bringing its own raves. Show’s creative team in Danger Room. Makes the action go zoom-zoom. Sharing ideas with their own power. Beautiful conflict in story for the hour. Doing next level stuff in their tight bod. Reminds us of days of the MOD Squad.

Danger Room in ‘X-Men’ terms. A place for the savvy and book-worms. To train, fight and work out some things. So that their powers deliver zings. Cage actor Mike Colter can relate. Similar lessons on his dream plate. On becoming an actor not before long. From ‘Low Country’ to Million Dollar Baby strong.

A role on Good Wife made us see. His chops not coming geek free. Now off to be about game-changing. With socially-conscious show script arranging. Brand new feeling in a special way. More surprises to pack and play. Bridging dreams, community and showbiz lanes. For stretching career like sky-high cranes.

The Harlem players and storyline hook. Makes Cage a homeboy with superhero look. Not hung-up letting power go to his head. Still maintaining much street cred. Just think how he’s unbreakable. But in other sense pretty relatable. Dude from rough side of road runners. Next stop teaming-up with the Defenders.
