There’s a new ‘B’ in town..that’s Samantha Bee. She’s the recent late night host and the only female in the ranks. Meanwhile, back in Harlem USA, Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs is launching a new Charter school in his hometown. They’ve found new wind beneath their wings for hitting the sweet spot & lifting street value.

In a press statement Combs said “I want to impact the lives of young people in my community and build future leaders. All our children should be able to pursue their dreams. That is something I can impact with this school.” Diddy has gone from ‘good to gush’ by turning his career milestones into dream projects.

Before getting her own gig, Bee worked with Jon Stewart on the Daily Show for 12 years. Combs as the all-time rapper is teaming up with noted Educators to bring a new slice of success to students. They have used their early days in showbiz to figure-out how to crack the code or break the mold in media & music.

It’s that same tenacity that he hopes to bring to students. Maybe what works for connecting smarts to hearts might be the same as what’s helped him go from rapper to mogul. It’s in reaching people where they are and taking them to a place where whatever it takes to win, feels good. That’s the real hotspot.

The buzz around Bee these days is whether her rise will help to expand the club of female late night hosts. When asked about Stewart’s role she said “He gave me the platform for me to teach myself.” Maybe that’s how Diddy sees this effort as the next frontier in his quest to flex more eagle-high dreams.

There’s a new ‘B’ in town. With enough honey to go ‘round. That’s Samantha Bee from Comedy Central. Now with her own TBS portal. Meanwhile back on the Harlem block. Sean ‘Diddy’ Combs brings new school house rock. Both with new wind beneath their wings. Hitting sweet spot and street value things.

In press statement saying he wants to impact. Lives of young people as a ‘hood contract. To build future leaders and teams. So that kids can pursue their dreams. Something about doing it in school. Where learning is the main rule. He’s gone from ‘good to gush.’ So he wants kids to feel the same rush.

Before getting her own show. Bee worked in Jon Stewart’s comedy row. Spent 12 years doing funny bits. Now she’s ready to do the hits. Combs as all-time rapper’s delight. Teams-up with Educators in the fight. Bringing kids a new slice of success. To crack the code or break the mold after recess.

Same tenacity he hopes they gain. Knowing how to channel the pain. What works for connecting smarts to hearts. Helped him go from rapper to mogul parts. In reaching people where they are. Taking them to place of a star. Doing whatever it takes to win. A real hotspot that pops a grin.

Buzz around Bee is if her rise. Will expand the club or reach the wise. Female hosts in late night ranks. And some women in their spanks. When asked about Stewart’s mentor role. Kinda wants to say ‘bless his soul.’ It’s how Diddy sees his next milestone. Eagle-high dreams to stepping stone.

Some have begun getting their media credentials. It’s an industry term for having an inside-track to an event. Maybe that’s how Black Girls Rock founder Beverly Bond sees her work in ‘girl-powerment.’ Her group is honoring Gladys Knight and Shonda Rhimes for taking the midnight train to a trailblazing station.

Bond started her career in modeling before becoming a music DJ. As an entrepreneur and philanthropist she’s quoted as saying “Everyone needs someone in their life who pushes them to the next level.” She could teach top 3 tricks of the biz trade & getting paid that’s good for work, play and any milestone day.

She knows people-skills make the world go ‘round in working with a who’s who of celebrity clients. Plus, she’s figured-out how to make success look like a spring time walk in the park connected to wi-fi. Her work serves things bigger than herself by having more passion push, purpose pop and pulling strings.

There’re times getting to the next level is in how we simplify. These women might have turned the old saying into a mantra of “keep it simple and sexy.” But there’re other times when getting to the next level is in how we diversify. That’s helped with staying in the game and expanding their name to other arenas.

At times they’re busy adding projects to their roster or pushing the envelope. As they’ve risen in career and life, it has meant stepping-out from the shadows or ditching mediocrity out the windows. This sometimes feels like a battle of the sexes to serve-up a sexist fix around the way or across the miles.

Step right up for your credentials. A media pass that’s essential. Industry term for having inside-track. To events that push the stack. Beverly Bond founder for Black Girls Rock. ‘Girl-power’ more than a pretty girl’s block. Gladys Knight & Shonda Rhimes get nomination. Took midnight train to trailblazing station.

Bond started career on the cat walk. Then added DJ action to music & talk. As biz woman philanthropist and producer. Says moving things to next level takes an inducer. Could teach us tricks of getting paid in biz trade. From what she did to make the grade. Good for work, play and milestones made.

People-skills make world go ‘round. In between the sights and the sound. Working with who’s who from celeb list. Figured-out how to have success bliss. Kinda like a spring time walk in the park. While wi-fi synched to hotspot hallmark. Working in ways much bigger than self. Pulling strings among the top shelf.

Getting to next level is to simplify. Making things boom is to diversify. Keeping it ‘simple and sexy’ with their brand. Taking no stuff for where they stand. Helped them with staying in the game. Filling other arenas by expanding their name. Alright for guys and gals working as one and the same.

Busy adding to their project roster. Pushing envelope in what they foster. Rising in career and life streams. With what were childhood dreams. Meant stepping-out from the shadows. Or ditching mediocrity out the windows. Less about battle of the sexes mix. Serving-up big fun, good life and a sexist fix.

The countdown to the big game has begun. For Cam Newton it’s his first trip to the Superbowl. The other big game countdown is the 2016 Olympics. It’s six months away and Usain Bolt has his eyes set on the sprint double for a third time. These guys might be cut out of the same cloth of primetime performance.

Hall-of-Fame Quarterback Joe Namath is quoted by USA Today as saying “Cam is purely joyful to watch. He’s certainly entitled to showing his pleasure… if you’re not winning, you can’t do it.” Newton and Bolt show us how to bring juice on the job, mojo in the marketplace and super powers on the field of dreams.

Their gameplan doesn’t always go as expected. But they adjust their thrust because for them winning is a must. You know how water flows in a pipe when the pressure is released. They do the same as their juice on the job flows by releasing their passion. This works at the office and other parts of the business world.

Win or lose Newton’s likely to rake-in more commercials. Bolt’s not doing shabby either. He just landed a deal with an Australian company. The director said “It’s no secret that Usain Bolt competes to win. His hard work, fierce determination and unwavering commitment are exuded every time he hits the track.”

So what do these guys have in common? Well Cam celebrates with the dab. Usain poses as the ‘lightning bolt.’ They get the chance to showcase their strengths on the big stage. For Newton & Bolt, where there’s gold on the line they just turn super-power type performance into a celebration dance and hot pants.

Countdown to big game running. NFL pros back from Hawaii sunning. Cam Newton makes first Superbowl trip. Like dancing on Uptown Funk he’s ice cold hip. Six months to Olympics opening night. Usain Bolt looking to take flight. Guys cut out of same cloth. Primetime performance. not chicken broth.

Hall-of-Famer Namath knows about passing to catch. Saying Newton is joyful to watch. Entitled to showing his pleasure. ‘Cause he’s winning for good measure. Newton and Bolt bring juice on the job. Others want to say they’re snob. Mojo in the marketplace gleams. Super powers on the field of dreams.

Gameplan not always connected. Or going as they had expected. Finding ways to adjust. In focus, passing and thrust. Since winning for them is a must. You know how water flows in a pipe. When pressure released without the hype. Juice on the job flows the same. Work, play & passion in the game.

Win or lose Newton to rake-in more. Once game over and settle the score. Bolt’s on par to be market leader. Australian company his new commercial feeder. Director tells the story of competing to win. And seeing Bolt’s cheek-wide grin. Hard work, fierce determination and commitment with that stick a pin.

So what do they have alike? They could easily be like mike. Cam celebrates with a dab. Usain with ‘lightning bolt’ that’s fab. The chance to showcase their skills. On the big stage it’s the thrills. Where there’s gold on the line it’s a dance. Super-power type results in their performance and hot pants.
