Memo 203: The (Global) Grind Is Sold Separately

It costs you nothing to dream but it may cost you almost everything to pursue it. At some point, you will have to make the decision on how you’re going to proceed with your life. Will you be just a dreamer or will you be a dream chaser? Choose wisely.

And while you’re choosing, you may as well do it wearing a gold cape! I mean if you’re going to go out into the world and be amazing, you may as well dress the part! When I showed up for this Global Grind Interview, the Senior Marketing Director of Interactive One made the comment that I showed up looking like a Super Woman. Well, I mean, dress for the job you want or nah?

Check out the full Global Grind interview here or on my You Tube Channel here.

Before you proceed there’s a special announcement:
Mixed Media: 3rd Blogiversary Celebration!
  • The Werk! Place is turning three in a little over two weeks! Of course, there’s a celebration. 
  • Join me on Thursday, October 29, 2015 at the Roosevelt Lofts Rooftop Lounge starting at 6PM. You all know how I feel about a rooftop!
  • RSVP at to reserve your spot. A minimum donation of $5 is required with your RSVP and 100% of the proceeds are going to Girls With Gifts, Inc., a community service organization geared towards empowering young women to develop and use their gifts to contribute to society. 
  • Of course, a rooftop situation is not complete without some fresh beats, a little bubbly and some light refreshments. 
  • For partnership opportunities, please contact [email protected].


Patiently, waiting but I hate waiting (you know the rest).
The wall of record albums in the studio definitely gave me some Home Werk inspiration.
The classic NYC yellow taxi shot.
Watch me “werk”.
The details! I have officially worn these Jeffrey Campbell gladiator sandals ALL the way out! They’re going into retirement…until next Summer, that is.
Pose for the camera. Now, flick flick flick…
I overlove a good tassel! They literally make me tingle on the inside.
Who Me? Oh nothing, just walking around the streets of Manhattan trying not to get hit. No biggie.
