Girls just want to have…

funWell I don’t know if they even know that they want it, but those of us who posses it, know full well that they need it. The thing is, how do we get them to not only desire CLASS, but hone it?

I am pleased to say that most young women (that we  see reflected in the public eye on television) seem to possess the most awesome curves via natural DNA and then there are the mass of them that have enhanced their physiques via working out, cosmetic surgery and implants. Either way, the lot of them look fantastic. I kind of think of fitness and enhancements as art work. Fitness is the longterm solution and I think that commercial society is doing its part in pushing fitness centers, nutritional centers and even fit reality shows to reinforce how important fitness is. Perhaps it’s my immediate surroundings, (my college-age kid and her friends), but the youth are embodying and making FITNESS and LOOKING GOOD their own. I love it. I support it. However, beyond watching calories and understanding your metabolic burn how are you branding all of that physical awesomeness?

A classy look is one thing, but once the mouth opens, will the class still stand? You gotta think about it. What is your conversation about?


Please have something of value and substance to talk about. I know this is easier said than done. Great conversation could never be taught, but you can get in the habit of building it by conditioning your mind to not waste time when communicating. Say what you mean and by all means MEAN WHAT YOU SAY.

No conversation is for nought. Life is full of time that is not refundable, You can use it wisely or waste it frivolously. The line of those that love to waste time is long – please don’t add your two cents to to it.

Education is sexy. Invest in yourself and self educate, if  you must. Education is paramount in communication. Resist trying to BS folks in conversation or trying to wing it. Those of us that converse with the best of them will sniff you out the minute you start. Please keep in mind:

If you don’t have “the words” in the end you won’t be heard,
instead he’ll be thinking this:


Remember branding and marketing starts with mastering YOURSELF; building a stellar reputation of good character. Watch what’s on your mind and what comes out of your mouth. It all matters and ultimately leads to shaping who you are. Conversation rules the nation. Get some and don’t forget distinct originality.

Gaining and exuding class is attainable to us all; however, it’s not a one day course. It’s a lifestyle. Anything worth having YOU WILL HAVE TO WORK AT. Class is worth it. Nothing looks better on you, your journey and ultimately your legacy.


So when you do get his attentions, Dear Divas — here is the secret
be armed with GREAT CONVERSATION if you intend to keep it.

Men have short attention spans and new things can quickly snap their neck.
You’ve got to be the most interesting, rely on mystique and respect.

Oh yeah! We’re sure to talk about that next. Never say everything at once,

Why settle for one without the other?

In the Mercedes with Fab

In Communication, Griot, Music on December 15, 2011 at 2:44 pm

Wood grain, black leather, and chrome — is standard inside of his mercedes ride. However it is the music and conversation that brands the moment:

Riding shot gun with Fab 5 Freddy down 5th Avenue and across town…
Reminds me that this brother gets around more than “BROWN“.

He plays the dopest joints and his conversation is always tight.
I’m usually keeping my composure while thinking, “this is the life”!

His a.m. route sounds like jazz and his evening route sounds like a party.
All that is missing is a venue, a top shelf bar and few pining shorties.
The ladies do love FabOooo Lordy.

Me too.
Not many can pull off all that he’s known to do.

So I’m thinking about my mentor in black;
Mercedes on stroll – jamming DaBrat.

Music marks the moment. Music always sets the tone.
And it’s always first class when you’re in the legends zone.

Yes! It’s grown music – yield yourself to it, kick back and relax your wig.
Because he’s branding the grown and sexy, I will duly jam it big! lol!

Take a swig of his vibe and jam the line up in stride,
