And then there was LUKE CAGE

meet-luke-cageand I was like Hold up! Wait!” I appreciate a black man in my face who feels NO PAIN,
not even in the form of metal bullet tips from clips that reign.

Mike Colter is A-OK in this NETFLIX series.  Have you seen his work?
The writing alone is pretty strong and could invoke a Sapeosexual to twerk.

The relativity of the set, the scene the crew…
The relativity to my hood and the things that we do.

I saw the barber shop and pops – I saw the gun-toting thugs on the outside.
I saw Luke Cage shield a young customer from bullets on the night that Pops died.

In script – I was hurt, but this is what homage building is all about
The loss of Pops was the exact cost – needed to bring Super Hero LUKE CAGE out.

CULT Potential: STOUT. I love the way it’s all playing out.
With the way things are going-on near and around my home,
we could use a LUKE CAGE on the Phoenix route.

Superman and Batman aren’t the only ones that show up and turn out.

Whether he’s at the jiz, in his crib or on the streets
Luke Cage is quite the view — even briefly in the sheets

He and the detective….I liked it.

Just when I thought I’d composed my 2016 list of series thrills from scripted page
I am introduced by Fab5Freddy, to this new fella LUKE CAGE.

Fab was on the set of,  when he hit me up to ‘hook & rope her,’
he said he was on the LUKE CAGE set with his friend Cheo Hodari Coker.

The series writer.
What an exciter!

The mind is a great find
and this one has a NETFLIX rewind.

I’m sitting here yielding my time
to Cokers writ like a 9 to 5.

Yep! Yep! Give me Five on the Black Hand Side – I’m loving every minute.
And to put another cherry on this treat, there’s a Fab Five cameo in it.

I reckon that’s why he was on set, it’s good to know good people everwhere.
The Unfair Advantage is just that – fantastically unfair. 🙂

Me? I’m hooked on the view. They’ve got me. I’m their chic!
I’m Qui
A LUKE CAGE – she and I’ve got a ‘thang with NETFLIX.

They’re on their –ish.

Using the Unfair Advantage…

Not quite what I mean, but...

Not quite what I mean, but…

 I’m an independent filmmaker and documentarian girl
who is absolutely content in making her own mark in this world.

It’s not a reel fast journey nor one to be taken without detailed care.
I am a reeler of the here-and-now; hence, tomorrow, it will be there.

I’m a freelancing videographer – with an awesome schedule that I can manage,
lest I cease to be a visual key, my kids will reap an unfair advantage.

“Have you ever wondered about starting your own business? Odds are, if you’re reading this, the thought has crossed your mind. Or maybe you already have a business or two under your belt and you’re considering a new opportunity. Either way, you’re probably asking yourself whether taking the plunge is a good idea.

The standard advice about launching a company often revolves around your personal qualities as an entrepreneur. Are you sufficiently visionary, committed or savvy? Or perhaps you’ve heard that market conditions are the key. And those things certainly do help you to succeed. The problem is, there are 100 factors which may or may not influence your odds of success, and no one has all of them in their favor. So how do you decide?

It may surprise you to learn that there’s one business success factor that stands out above all others. Do you have an unfair advantage?

It’s a phrase that’s become increasingly popular in business circles. It’s also the name of a book: “The Unfair Advantage Small Business Advertising Manual,” by Claude Whitacre.

Remember, an unfair advantage is not your drive, your product features or your customer service. You should assume that your competition is also driven, with a good product and great customer service. After all, if they didn’t have these basics, they wouldn’t still be around to compete with you.

Instead, ask yourself:

» Am I uniquely qualified in a way that customers value?

» Do I understand my customers better than anyone else?

» Do I have a business development or marketing advantage?

» Can I price my offering in a way no one else can?

» Do I have special operational capabilities for delivering my product or service?

Your answers to these questions will come from your life story and the life stories of your business partners. Unfair advantages can come from your family, old friends, where you grew up or who you married. They can also come from your experiences in school, church, internships, jobs and volunteer work.

If you talk to successful business owners about how they got their start, you’ll hear a lot about their grit, their hard work and their determination. But if you dig a little deeper, you’ll often find all that grit, work and determination was piled on top of an initial seed – an impressive contact list, a family business, a fortuitous business partner, specialized training or insight from a former employer, access to low-cost Web development, warehousing or distribution – the list goes on.

Finally, there are different definitions of what does and does not constitute an unfair advantage, but I think the opinion that really matters is your customer’s. If your clients care about something you have that the competition can’t reproduce, then congratulations! You have an unfair advantage, which is one of the best reasons to start your own business.”

A decade ago Qui Entertainment Network, LLC was born
I was fiercer than Sasha in sounding the griot alarm.

My style of convey – a derivative of the West African charm
that was informations vein before books were born.

Qui Films was born thereafter, and once again I shaped with care.
My kids were raised during my film school craze – yielding them an advantage – unfair.

Here’s a piece of wisdom – To the GO GETTER, please do get this:
If you know you are a driving force – consider your own business.
