elijaa_ On this day 3 years ago I quit my day job and pursued a full-time career in consulting. I was young, naive, low key ratchet and ambitious as all hell... 3 years later...2 businesses later...6 cities later...all the tears...countless number of clients, coins and CUNT-y emails I'm proud to say that I'm still here doing the same thing and not much has changed. My edges are a bit more snatched and I have zero tolerance for tom foolery. but I've learned to constantly attempt to do the things that others tell me is not possible; strive for excellence without compromising my ancestors values and integrity; pay EVERYTHING forward (with grace and a splash of grit) and most importantly DO NOT be surprised when greatness shows up at the front door. Any who, I just hired my first Project Manager and as a millennial entrepreneur I have finally conquered one of the MOST valuable/difficult tasks: ASKING and PAYING for help!!! If y'all thought I (we) were doing it just wait till summer seventeen! ayyyeee! Fun tip Friday: do MORE stuff with People Who Care 🏿🏿🏿🏿🖕🏿✍🏿 #buildthecapacity 1w

elijaa_ Omg! I was just too damn productive today and now my brain hurts! LISTEN, can someone please take me out for a drink (sans discussion of your next project, art gallery opening, event in June, etc.)? Also, have you ever had to explain to a client that it cost EXTRA coins to fix a problem that has absolutely nothing to do with you / is completely out of your agreed upon project scope? If not, it's truly a sobering experience and you totally have the right to tell them that they are playing games. In other NEWS, @kaytranada, one of my many future ex-husbands (not to be confused with @mijoprodigo, because y'all know I have this thing with DJs) just came out of the closet so now I need to 1. Restructure the next 3 years of my #thotty life 2. Begin planning my official move to Montréal. AND yes, @girlwiththatlaugh, my "queer until proven straight theory" strikes again! 🏿🏿🏿 3w
