A New Way to Shine with Highlights, Insights and Media-bites that’s Exciting (Old-School Flava)

It seems President Obama is in legacy mode. It’s a bookend to those earlier days of being in campaign mode. So he recently addressed youth activists in London, sharing his take on making a difference. It might be said he’s bringing the KoolAid while Beyoncé is selling ‘Lemonade’ on the world stage.

In his cool-cat manner he told the activists “You have a responsibility to prepare an agenda that is achievable —that can institutionalize the changes you seek and to engage the other side.” Prez and Bey show us how game changers add the price tag of hustle and the cost of living to grow their ranking.

As his presidency unwinds, he shared some good pointers for workers, movers & shakers. He reflected on the difference between making noise and making waves. Just as the ocean teaches us, there’s a consistency that flows from the deep to the shallow. So it’s more than making a living, it’s modeling a life.

With her newest album release in a HBO video-diary, she’s a game changer who reminds us that it’s more than just making music but also making others wiser. As millennials pass baby boomers in census numbers maybe there’s a shift in using her own journey and story to stir-up a stream of consciousness.

The buzz since the album release has been off the charts. Both Prez and Bey are using their work to make it worth something. Things can feel stuck when we just get by or if the soul don’t dream no more. They show us how our efforts become worthy of more by moving from merely brand force to soul force.

Seems Prez Obama in legacy mode. Before his term hits the road. A bookend to those earlier days. When his campaign the roof did raise. Telling youth activists in London spot. On making a difference and doing it hot. On world stage Obama brings KoolAid. While Beyoncé sells her brand of ‘Lemonade.’

A cool-cat telling activists as Prez. To have an agenda he says. Something achievable in change they seek. Not for the faint of heart or unduly meek. A way to bring it to the masses. So they don’t look like asses. Prez and Bey add hustle to cost of living. As game changers who grow their ranking.

His term during its unwind. Sends message for the work grind. Not just about making noise. Even if doing it with poise. But also in making waves. That’s the stuff that attracts raves. As the ocean teaches us all. Consistency flow from deep to shallow fall. From making a living to modeling a higher call.

With newest album release as video diary. Beyonce brings it to the Beyhive community. A game changer’s next groove beyond the music. Lose yourself but be wiser beyond the tunic. Forget ‘bout Becky who others want to see. In setting a stream of consciousness free.

Album buzz been off the charts. As she reaches music lover’s hearts. Prez and Bey using their work track. To be worth something more than being black. At times things can feel stuck. Trying to get by on making a buck. A move to be worthy beyond brand force. To efforts being guided by soul force.

Tip: Great achievers move things in life from brand force to soul force as if going from regular to rock star.

Theme:–The Year of ‘Uppertunity’ – Get Lifted!”
With Higher Hopes, Bolder Dreams and Greater Teams (Old-School Flava)

Who says you have to be young to be a Bond girl or a Hollywood icon to score a Latin hit? That’s what some are thinking after weekend releases on the big screen and Broadway. It’s a case of James Bond movies and Gloria Estefan music having twists and turns for the best of times with the stuff of dreams.

The Broadway show is Estefan’s Cuban-American story. She tells Hollywood Reporter “We wanted to succeed with who we were, because if you succeed, you’re gonna be doing it the rest of your life, so you better like it!” Basically, pack some flavor in your craft, watch what happens to passion after the first draft.

The first Bond movie was Dr. No. The first English-language song by Estefan was Dr. Beat. Interestingly, she was told ‘no’ by a record executive who felt a crossover Latin artist was impossible. Her story reminds us that to keep the dream alive means staying on your feet, proving things and turning the beat around.

She didn’t take ‘no’ as final, keeping focus on her Miami Sound Machine. She even had to bounce back from a tour bus accident. That didn’t stop her reaching higher and making the hits hotter. She feels focus has given the universe reasons to conspire to help her dreams, so that things meant to happen, happen.

Bond movies and Estefan’s music are buzz worthy for their drive to the end, leaving room for a little playtime. Along the way there’re surprise moments that bring goosebumps or empowers ‘oomphs.’ No wonder the Bond franchise keeps rolling in dough and Estefan’s story is good enough for its own show.

And Gloria Estefan salsa groovies. With twists and turns on the A/V reams. The best of times and the stuff of dreams.

Broadway show her Cuban-American background. In mainstream from the underground. Tells Hollywood Reporter about wanting success. To reflect being at her best. Living what it brings in name. Liking what it does for the fame. Basically, pack some flava in your craft. Watch how passion rocks after first draft.

First Bond movie was Dr. No. That one made everything go. Her first English song was Dr. Beat. Told by record exec she can’t compete. As crossover artist not even possible. ‘Cause her music not so relatable. Story reminds us all to keep the dream alive. Stay on your feet proving things and that’s no jive.

Didn’t take ‘no’ as final say. Kept focus on Miami Sound Machine play. Had to bounce back from bus tour crash. Not something she likes to rehash. Didn’t stop her from reaching higher. Or from making hits even hotter. She feels focus gives universe reasons to conspire. So that things happen for which we aspire.

Bond movies and Estefan music have many fans. For their drive to the end and dancing bands. Along the way there could be goosebumps. Or surprise moments that empower more oomphs. No wonder Bond series keeps rolling in dough. And Estefan story’s good enough for a show.
