Eminem and U.S. Soccer’s Christian Pulisic Bring Their Star Power and American Dream to a New Level of GB – ‘Game Bonafide’

doc_lg

Wait, how’m I gonna start this blog? That’s a question that gets asked every week. With so much to write about in celebrity pop it’s a matter of bringing the right vibe. It makes sense then how Eminem would start his freestyle rap that way. For him it’s a case of lyrical content with the right touch of street cred.

When it comes to US Men’s Soccer star Christian Pulisic some say he’s got next. Not in the rap game but as the face of the game. It’s true, professional dreams in the biz world don’t all take rap skills or great foot-work. But there’s usually something that moves star power to a new level of GB – ‘Game Bonafide.’

That’s kinda what went down with Eminem’s rap cypher on the BET Awards. Some think he’s on a comeback after being off the radar for a minute. He’s not retired, he’s just re-wired. Maybe this says something about what happens when your flow gets bumped. Things either become a hit or take a hit.

In political terms it’s said that after a good debate performance a candidate is likely to get a ‘bump’ in their poll numbers. It usually means more people are feeling the message or the messenger. That happens in how they might make a strong point or deliver a wow-like performance.

Folks are raving on social media how Eminem did that. He brought strong points and a wow performance that left memorable moments. He even shows how to move your career track or biz dream forward by having a spinoff of your vision. Shady hasn’t let his mojo get stumped or his mass-appeal get dumped.

It’s interesting that his rap cypher is called ‘The Storm.’ That’s a metaphor of-course for the current political climate. But it might also be how Pulisic and his teammates are feeling after not qualifying for the soccer World Cup. If they could have even pulled-out a draw in the match they would have advanced.

Soccer federation honchos are probably looking at how they’ll ‘right the ship’ after the disappointment. It’s like when a biz dream or project team goes through some kind of setback. Who knows if it’s just a matter of taking care of the little things that has had Eminem staying low. But now he’s back for another go.

One of the biggest setbacks in my dream journey was while hosting a community radio show on a college station. It was in year five as things were coming together. Then one morning some dude shuts down the power while I’m on air. It was where I not only took a hit but decided I was no longer gonna take that..

christianpulisic

Pulisic might be having a similar ‘sick feeling’ right now. The sting of disappointment is sometimes felt for a while. But there’s something that happens in those down times that moves things from the brink to a place of clearer think. Plus, it’ll pave the way for Pulisic to bring more edge to his game as with Eminem.

In pro sports you hear players being sent down to the minor leagues or brought up from the practice squad. Those who’re sent back have things to work on while those brought up are ready for the big-times. But along the way you’ll either take a hit or become a hit especially when you put your dreams on the line.

Tip: As you upgrade the flow in your career or dreams you’ll either take a hit or become a hit.

Talkback: How’d you describe the edge that Eminem or Pulisic bring to make them ‘Game Bonafide?’

A Cool Way for Flexing Style, Game & Soul in How We Roll (Old-School Flava)

These days many sports fans are glued to the screens and screams of NCAA March Madness. The upsets have been dropping top teams out the picture. But TV fans are happy to see that Oprah and Michelle are back on the scene. They’re taking power lunch and power crunch to fun-time places.

Obama recently appeared as-then First Lady on Master Chef Junior as she gave some ‘recipe for life’ advice to young chefs about “getting an education, doing their best and pushing themselves towards their highest self.” Her tips were like the kind a coach gives athletes before signing day or sweet-16 game time.

Formal education is one thing but Oprah and Michelle got game in bigger things too. They’ve achieved ‘firsts’ in ways that make you wanna cheer them in bursts. They might say it takes a mindset that puts purpose and passion in focus. Plus, the lifestyle they enjoy is related to the life shifts they employ.

Oprah’s busy re-kindling her acting chops. Her role in Greenleaf on OWN has her on the small screen. But it’s the work in her latest ‘justice project’ that’s getting attention. She plays a part in telling the story of Henrietta Lacks’ cancer battle and how her cells were used in future treatment without family consent.

Michelle’s been out taking spring walks with her dogs. She also took time for a power lunch with friends. Meanwhile Oprah might be doing her power crunch with her Weight Watchers drills. The combination of mindset, swag and celebration they bring help us see more good life options for not being the ‘lost ones.’

Many fans glued to their TV sets. Watching to see about tourney bets. Screams and cheers all over the room. As star players dunk and zoom. Game upsets have teams dropping like flies. While others glad to see Oprah and Michelle’s styles. With timeout for a power lunch. And doing fun things after power crunch.

Obama as-then First Lady and wife. Giving Master Chef Junior a recipe for life. Advice to young’uns doing their best. Using education as springboard to pass the test. Pushing towards their highest self. So that nothing’s left on the shelf. Tips a coach might try to give. Before signing day or sweet-16 game they live.

Formal study is one thing you do. But they got game in bigger things too. Achieved high standard in a few ‘firsts.’ Makes you wanna cheer them in bursts. They might say put purpose and passion in the bag. This way your focus won’t lag. The kinda lifestyle they certainly enjoy. Related to the life shifts they employ.

Oprah busy rekindling acting chops. Her role on OWN’s Greenleaf a real pop. Like taking the small screen by storm. Where excellence is her norm. More to see in ‘justice project’ work. With public attention a fresh perk. Story of Henrietta Lacks’ cancer dare. And how her cells were used by others without care.

Michelle’s seen on recent spring walk. Her dogs on leash like a bean stalk. Power lunching with the gals. Oprah’s power crunches with Weight Watchers pals. Combo of mindset, passion and celebration. From their personal and professional creation. Helps us see good life options. On avoiding ‘lost ones’ positions.

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

If you’re a Comic Book reader you know that Brie Larson is part of the ComicCon family. If you’re a MLB fan you know that Mike Piazza was just inducted into the Baseball Hall of Fame. It was just as exciting hearing that Larson would be the next Captain Marvel. So Piazza might think, ‘Me too, so good, I got you!’

According to the NY Daily News, his batting coach said “Mike had something you couldn’t teach – he had power and power takes time to develop. That’s what he needed, time. I wanted to make sure he got it.” Piazza is real proof for not quitting along the way before the right people hear what you have to say.

He started-out as a minor league player with the Dodgers’ farm club. Not much might have been expected as he was picked at the bottom of the pack in the draft. Piazza went on to have a stellar career by working hard on his batting stroke. He came to know that skill mastery has a certain learned timing.

One day at practice he overheard some ‘trash talking’ and was discouraged. He kinda became tuned-out to the game he loved. But after being pulled aside and getting some tough-love from his coach, Piazza re-grouped. This self-check moment caused him to be more tuned-into going from good to great.

Many were pleased when they heard Larson would be the next Captain Marvel. She’s already getting thumbs-up from her fans. A time others remember was Piazza hitting a homerun in the 8th inning of the first MLB game after 9-11. They show us how dreaming-up & teaming-up are a preview for beaming-up.

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

Comic Book readers do know. Brie Larson got the go. ComicCon fam did learn. She’s ready to rock and burn. Meanwhile MLB fans cheered for Mike. Piazza the Hall of Fame champ they like. Buzz that Larson to play Captain Marvel role. Piazza might feel the same even if that wasn’t his goal.

In media reports from the big city. Piazza rose to the occasion looking pretty. His batting coach came to see. The power Piazza had from shoulder to knee. Needing time to develop swing in the cage. Feeling sure he’d rise to the next stage. Proof for not quitting along the way. So folks hear what you have to say.

Started-out on the minor bench. With Dodgers farm club spot he’d clench. Not sure to be a contender. Picked at bottom as draft’s low-ender. Went on to have stellar career overall. By working to minimize strikeout call. Knowing that skill mastery in hits or steal. Takes a certain learned timing in baseball appeal.

After a day at practice he went sour. From hearing ‘trash-talk’ in the noon hour. Felt kinda tuned-out from the game and group. His soul needed some chicken soup. With tough-love from coach’s corner. He was back to sending balls a goner. A moment for handling the hate. Then tuned-into going from good to great.

Many happy people on Larson’s news. Giving thumbs-up and shared views. With Captain Marvel going to be female. Maybe sign of the times if things prevail. Others flashback to Piazza homerun. First MLB game after 9-11 bigger than fun. Showing how dreaming-up with a team. Before rising to the top as the cream.

With Higher Hopes, Bolder Dreams and Greater Teams (Old-School Flava)

Know someone who just had a birthday? If so they’re one year older and wiser. That’s how it feels when celebrating your next milestone is less about age and more about experiences. Maybe that’s why actor/singer Tyrese and Richard Branson from Virgin Group face different challenges for next-level living.

Branson who turned 65 said “I can assure you I have no plans to retire. I can’t imagine not working, as I’ve never seen work as work and play as play – it’s all just living.” It’s really how game changers, dream chasers and glass-ceiling breakers keep things fun. They stretch themselves in mind, body and spirit.

While not in the same league, Tyrese’s challenge is getting airplay on mainstream radio. He doesn’t put limits on his career and thinks it’s not fair for others to put limits on his music. His success has spanned music, movies and television. His vision is to stretch his music appeal beyond a genre-specific brand.

Branson’s a guy with business savvy most of his life. In some circles he’s called a serial entrepreneur having a hand in various biz ventures. Beyond music stores and a global airline, Branson’s now poised to commercialize space travel. They both take time to celebrate life as they soar into the record books.

Plus, they’re plugged-in to social media as Branson’s taking ideas for 65 challenges he’ll tackle in the next year. One challenge he’s already finished is sitting still for 65 minutes. For the busy person he is, that wasn’t easy. He posted a selfie doing so as he enjoyed the scene on his private island view.

They’ll use these challenges to inspire others to capture their dreams and pamper their souls. So, in the end, we all might affirm the words of Oprah, another icon in the game who said “My confidence comes from knowing there is a Force, a Power greater than myself, that I am a part of and is also a part of me.”

Know someone having a birthday bash? The young’uns hope to get some cash. If so they’re one year older. Better yet another year wiser. That’s how it feels for a milestone. Less about age, but being in the zone. So Richard Branson and Tyrese face a challenge that’s here. Dude this is serious but have no fear.

Branson turned 65 and lights a fire. Says “I can assure you, no plans to retire.” Really can’t imagine not even working. Work as work and play as play – it’s all living. How game changers and dreamers stay on the run. As they and glass-ceiling breakers keep things fun. Stretching mind, body and spirit in the sun.

While not in the same game. Tyrese wants to maximize his name. To get airplay on mainstream radio. Is what he’d like to hear in stereo. Doesn’t put limits on his career track. Thinks it’s not fair to be held back. His success spans music, movies and TV. Vision to stretch music branding beyond Urban AC.

Branson’s a guy with savvy and smarts. Most of his life he’s played many parts. Serial entrepreneur with lots of ventures. Travels the world in wild adventures. Beyond music stores and global airliner. Poised as first space travel entertainer. It’s how they celebrate and soar. Into record books but who’s keeping score.

Checking ideas from social media page. Vast followers across the world stage. For 65 challenges Branson tackles for kicks. Got no reason for playing tricks. One’s already done just to show. Sitting still 65 minutes, a pain you know. That wasn’t easy for him to do. Posted a selfie from his private island view.

Both hope to inspire others at least. To capture dreams, pamper souls and rally the beast. Some put confidence in a Force or Power to be contender. That’s something else a few others might remember. So in the end like Oprah we’ll get to see. As icon in the game that Force is part of you and me.

Some of the big names in entertainment went from Vegas to New York. First they watched the big fight on Saturday and then were at the Met Gala on Monday. Their private jets were parked on the runway ‘wing to wing.’  Meanwhile, J.K. Rowling and Bethany Mota have been spilling their guts on living the dream.

Rowling has been responding to her Twitter fans about characters on the Harry Potter series. She wishes she hadn’t dropped a few of them from the plot. She looks back on her own journey and might relate to words from Maya Angelou who once said “There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story.”

This fits with how the Harry Potter series came into being. Rowling was stuck on a train during her commute and decided to start writing. After getting home she spent the next five years building the story. Since that travel delay Rowling has developed her unproven writing skill in creating a mega-force empire.

While for Rowling there was also the pain of depression, it was the pain of bullying that helped Mota forge ahead. She saw Youtube as a way of expressing herself through fashion, beauty and spreading hope to teens. If not for the support from family and friends they would otherwise have been unsung stars.

One of the more recent milestones for Rowling is the Harry Potter attraction at Universal Studios in Orlando. She’s also released a novel and is working on a screenplay. Moto has a teen fashion line and a new music single. They’ve turned their pain into gain, skill into thrill and guts into glory.

Some big names in entertainment. Went from Vegas to New York appointment. Watched the big fight from the front row. Then to the Met Gala for Monday show. Private jets parked ‘wing to wing.’ Fashion statements wearing ‘bling to bling.’ Meanwhile J.K. Rowling and Bethany Mota keep doing their thing.

Rowling responding to Twitter fans. About Harry Potter series and future plans. Wishes she hadn’t scratched a few. From the plot for others that are new. Looks back on her journey and might relate. To words from Maya Angelou’s slate. Saying there may be no greater agony. Than bearing an untold story.

Good point when one thinks about the series birth. And how much Rowling is now worth. After being stuck on a train commute. Decided to start writing, just couldn’t refute. Spent next five years building the content. So for some the books are heaven-sent. Turning unproven skills into dollars that pay the rent.

For Rowling there was pain from depression. For Moto a matter of bullying confession. Saw Youtube as a place of expression. Sharing fashion, beauty and memorable impression. Spreading hope to many a teen. Building brand and clothing line green. So if not for family and friends. May have had different ends.

Recent Rowling milestone that says bravo. Is Harry Potter ride in Orlando. Her writing pen’s ready for more pay. Having released a novel and screenplay. Moto with fashion line and new music single. With little time as a teenager to mingle. Pain into gain, skill into thrill. And guts into glory that’s their fill.

Warren Buffett Feels Achieving the American Dream Takes Being Professional Grade – #WUWECAST

There’s been lots of talk recently about the American Dream being dead or alive. Some politicians have built their platform on making the Dream a reality for more folks. Other people think it’s getting harder and harder to attain. Warren Buffett feels the American Dream takes being rated professional grade.

Buffett believes it means career and biz branding that is distinctive, competitive and positive. It’s about being a standout on the job or in the marketplace. This makes for a more competitive position that puts you in the mix like top movies on Netflix. It helps create a rise in job status like seen on the Stock Market.

He says achieving the American Dream is affected not only by those professional factors but also social and monetary issues. He explains that the American Dream has given some people the cold shoulder as more earnings went to the super-rich. Their ‘Forbes 400’ wealth has grown 25 times since the 1980s.

Buffett thinks the American Dream is still doable as people, products and politicians breathe life into the marketplace. On the social front, this is impacted by the market system, rule of law and equality of justice. On the monetary side he feels government can help by expanding the Earned Income Tax Credit.

His ‘guru’ comes through with knowledge of the financial markets and economy. He plans to pass-on some measure of the American Dream by donating 99% of his wealth to philanthropy. In the meantime, he hopes more people can raise their professional grade and get to sip umbrella drinks in the shade.

Lots of talk and American Dream jive. Many wonder if it’s dead or alive. On it some politicians stake their platform. With message about social reform. People think it’s harder and harder to attain. For them that’s making it plain. Warren Buffett feels it takes being professional grade. For those who don’t have it made.

Buffett believes in career/biz branding.  Distinctive, competitive and on a positive standing. Takes being a standout on the job clock. And letting things shine on the market block. A more competitive showing in the mix. Like top movies online or Netflix. Watch your job status rise. As seen in a Stock Market surprise.

Buffet says the Dream’s affected by professional factors for sure. With social and monetary issues politicians should do more. American Dream’s given some the cold shoulder. While the super-rich are among the older. Their wealth since 1980s grown 25 times over. Leaving some to fight for the leftover.

Thinks the American Dream’s still doable. As people, products and officials make it possible. By breathing life into the marketplace. And making things happen in the social space. Impacted by market system, equality of justice, rule of law. And government expanding Earned Income Tax Credit thaw.

His ‘guru’ comes through like a money-market whiz. His knowledge rich in economic biz. Plans to pass-on Dream to many through philanthropy. By donation 99% with his peers who’re wealthy. Meantime he hopes more people can boost professional grade. And get to sip umbrella drinks in the shade.

He’s had 17 top-10 hits, plus 10 Grammys and counting. He’s been in the music business behind the scenes for a long time. Now he’s mixing things up in fashion, technology and social causes. The road hasn’t been all ‘happy’ though. So what’s he got up his sleeves as a returning ‘Voice’ coach and mentor?

Almost a year ago he was named the newest personality on NBCs ‘The Voice.’ Since then he’s had a banner year. A few years back he had hit a rough patch in his music career that could have been a deal breaker. But his comeback reflects a closely-held philosophy that ‘believing is a preview to achieving.’

He kept the wheels turning and opportunities flowing. This opened doors with Robin Thicke and Daft Punk. Williams wised-up in not trying to be like other artists. This led to embracing his unique gifting, being more purpose-driven and owning his lane. Steve Harvey might say ‘he let his gifting do the lifting.’

His acclaim jumped leaps and bounds with the success of the single Happy from the Despicable Me 2 soundtrack. This took him to the next-level in crossover appeal. He teamed-up with other artists on lyrical tracks for hot records. He’s also using his industry contacts and networking chops to make a difference.

You’ve probably seen him on the GQ magazine cover. He was also listed among Time magazine’s ‘100 Most Influential’ in 2014. Williams’s success is a reminder that believing comes before achieving. His gifting and life’s work is to coach emerging music talent. He mentors others on their unique glow and flow.

10 Grammy awards and counting. 17 Top-10 hits and grooving. A long time in music biz behind the scenes. Now in the front making the greens. Mixing things up in fashion and tech. Add in social causes just for the heck. Hasn’t been all ‘happy’ time though. As returning ‘Voice’ coach and mentor in the flow.

Almost a year now being named newest personality. On NBC’s ‘The Voice’ a different kind of reality. Since then he’s racked up a banner year. Even after hitting a rough patch in his music career. Easily could have been a deal breaker. Now his comeback reflects ‘believer to achiever, mover and shaker.’

This helped keep his wheels a turning. With more cash and flash a flowing. Opened doors with Robin Thicke and Daft Punk collabs. Not to mention giving advice on fashion fabs. Williams says that it’s about embracing. Steve Harvey might say it’s his unique gifting. Owning his lane by more purpose-driven living.

Acclaim jumped leaps and bounds that’s a fact. After success of Happy on Despicable Me 2 soundtrack. Took him to the next-level in crossover appeal. With Uniqlo fashion line having its own look and feel. Teamed-up with others on lyrical tracks. Making a difference through networking and business contacts.

As seen on the GQ magazine cover. He’s settled down with his longtime lover. Listed on Time magazine’s influential-100 ranking. Success a reminder of believing before achieving then banking. A gifting for coaching emerging talent on musical flow. Life’s work in mentoring others on their unique glow.
