Let’s see…..the main thing being talked about is…..*drumroll* The Oscars
First of all let’s discuss Jada P. Smith and her comments. Chile you late….why you ain’t been protesting. Maybe they didn’t nominate you all because the movie just wasn’t that good…..Spike Lee…I never did like him so he can shut it. Here is the icing on the cake did y’all here Aunt Viv comments. See her talk here. In a way I kind of agree with some of her points but chille..she still bitter about that fresh prince of bel air thang….can you tell lol
Took some pictures of the kids over the weekend for their tshirts…while I am not against natural hair…my daughters hair looks a hot mess so until we can properly get her hair fixed those pictures will not go on the website. I love natural hair but I don’t love when it looks like a brillo pad or it’s unkept. Sorry but I am not on the train of having hair all over the place and not having it combed and neat. Here are a few of the pics
Let’s discuss sending kids to school when they are sick and why parents go ham. When I was little I got chicken pox. My mom sent my ass to school and told me that they gave it to me so I gotta give it back to them. I wasn’t in school long she came back and got me after about 3 hrs. She was right around the corner and they were calling her to come get me but she came back after 3 hrs…just long enough for me to spread it. These days the debate to send kids to school if they are sick or coughing or whatever is real. I will tell you what I do……the only reason I will keep my kids home is if they are 1. coughing up a storm and it’s a cough every 30 min or 2. they have a fever. Other than that they are going to school….bye bye. Runny noses are not enough for me to keep my child home sorry but I don’t have time for my kids school to call me talking about they missed 3 days cause their nose was running. What Doc is going to give me an excuse for that? None! My kids doc don’t even wanna give me an excuse for allergies she told me point blank get him on a regimen and stick to it so he can stop missing school….shat she told me. What constitutes keeping your kids home from school?
I wish clients will let me design based on what looks good to consumers vs what they like. It’s not about what you like it’s about what appeals to the majority. I had a client last week who didn’t like any of the designs I sent her….she is the first person ever in 2 years to tell me she hated all of the designs. I have thick skin so I knew not to take her words to heart. Here is the kicker….y’all should have seen what she sent me as her version of the logo for what she wanted. My design buddy and I laughed all weekend long. Let me do my job or I will fire you. She wanted me to change some things but instead I fired her and gave her half of her money back. I don’t have time to deal with it let someone else do it. In the design world you will have people who go to the far left with what they want. I do clean and simple designs that speak to the heart of the business and turn heads. I don’t do ugly!
I am in need of a Virtual Assistant. I have interviewed 5 people so far and they aren’t my cup of tea. It’s not that I have a problem giving up control it’s the fact that they aren’t talking my language they don’t get what I need. I need someone to handle research for topics for my magazine because I spend at least an hour a day trying to find topics to write about that people will want to read. I gotta make sure I come from the angle that my magazine is about and I have to make sure it has some facts to it. I just simply need someone to take a topic that I give them find me 5 links/articles that go hand and hand with the topic and be done. I am going to eventually need someone to start handling pitch letters and tackling my email but if I can just find the right person to do the research they can get more money from me. Plus….I am not feeling the hourly thing that most VA’s have. I need a set price like I will do this, this, and that for x amount of money. I need structure…..don’t tell me you charge $250 a month for 10 hours of work……that won’t cut it.
Speaking of magazine…. I did a little winter cleaning of my magazine. Tell me how you like it! www.kokoamag.com
