Vision Statement 2010

Today I took off my wig and am trying to go all natural with this short hair that stemmed from a bad box of perm about a year ago. It's very difficult for me. I'll see how long I can go. As for now, I'm sitting in an empty parking lot of a local Los Angeles County library in Culver City typing my first blog for my new blog site. I'm actually so excited about this. I must admit I got this idea from Julie & Julia, a film that I watched this week while temping at a boring law office. But I'm not complaining because it is great for me to have my rent money for the next two

So for 2010 I challenge you to write your VISION STATEMENT. I'm borrowing this text from one of my favorite bishops, Bishop T.D. Jakes. Vision, Purpose, & Goals... What is your vision? What is your purpose? What are your goals?
1. Vision - what do you see?
2. Purpose - why do you see it?
3. Goals - how are you going to get it?

Why are you the way you are? God has given you everything you need for what he has called you to do.

Most of my life I have been in charge of something, even when I didn't really want to be. I come from a family that talks loud and loves to laugh (loudly I might add) lol. So I get it innocently. I had nothing to do with how I was created. Many peers have hated me for it. Many people have admired me for it. Many men have been attracted to me for it.

I'm the oldest of five but there were only four at the time of my childhood. So, I have been directing and producing the lives of my siblings for years. My mother made me responsible for the well-being of three other individuals when she was not around. The oldest child has it rough. Everything is our fault whether we did it or not. All I could remember was what happened in the end, that was all that mattered. This is still how I produce and direct my projects to this day. It doesn't matter how I get there, all that matters is how it looks in the end. Will it get me in trouble or will I get a good report? Therefore, I always aim for a good report - A.

As I close I want you to think about how your childhood ties into your vision that God has embedded in you. What are you doing to reach your destiny? Think about your true vision - what makes you so happy that you would really deep down inside do it for free. For me, it's directing.


  1. My VISION is to re-enter the Entertainment World, and give it my all. I am writing Screenplays, Stageplays, and Composing Music with the ideal of bringing something to the table. I will not say, SOMETHING NEW, but something in general. As a writer and director, one has their own vision as to how they want their stories told, and how they want the stories to unfold on stage and screen. This is where I am looking to showcase my cinematic talents.

    My PURPOSE is not to write anything to make a PEOPLE aware of anything, because in our Society, everything is the obvious. My PURPOSE, I believe is to write good stories that relflect true life experiences from whatever stand point it needs to come, (Young,Black, Old, etc...). The fact remains that even at 42 years of age, I have lived a lifetime, with more life to live. If I am serving any PURPOSE, it is to make US better aware of GOD and HIS AMAZING GRACE, without coming off as preachy.

    My GOALS, are to write and direct stories that catches the true to life experience. Doing so independently, makes it easier because I am not really being controlled by bounderies. I have purchased an arsenal of DV Cameras and a Top Notch Computer System for Editing. I plan to go straight to DVD, with Marketing and Promotions being handled by my own Team, as well as an outside PR and Marketing Firm. There is so much more to the business, but if I wrote anymore, I would be writing a book. Lol.....

  2. Can't wait to see what stuff your gonna direct in 2010!
