Just take care of business

With all I have to do in my world personally, professionally, I have a need and expectation for people will be responsive and handle business. What the hell is really going on? I did a blog at http://clevawords.blogspot.com some time ago about Indianapolis and the way people handle business here. Not all but damn.... The attitude is too much for me to deal with. If is not the attitude, its the laziness, slothfulness....grrrrrrrrrrrrr. I was use to this in working in the HIV arena and I really just thought it was just in that arena people did stuff half ass.....uh...NOPE.

I've decided that I would have a spirit of excellence with CWUW and future businesses but damn its hard when others don't themselves. Yeah, I fail at times myself and I kick myself in the ass for it. I am obedient to what I'm called to do and I WILL do it as Jesus himself was standing over me. Its hard for me to waiver. I'm learning why successful folks are called mean, bitchy, selfish, etc. Its the only way (on some level) to get stuff done. I can no longer keep saying, "Ok, its me. I'm too controlling. I need to just back off and let things ride." NAH......I want CWUW to happen. There are other business ventures I'm looking into in a couple of years AND I want those to happen here in Indy. I know that I alone can not change the culture of business in Indianapolis. I'll need help.

Some of the biggest problems is that folks popularity is more important that integrity and substance. I've seen this in politicians, business owners, etc. here in Indy. Its really ridiculous. I've watched incompetence rule over popularity on too many occasions. The Gatekeepers of this city are too afraid to allow new blood to come up and breathe new life into this stale city. They need to have their hands in the pot instead of being satisfied that the new up and comers are savvy, competent enough to read and follow the recipe and maybe make some improvements.

I think its just time to break the door down on the nonsense. Its time for folks here to stop complaining about Indy and really make some changes. What we have happening is those complaining are repeating the same lame pattern. I've spoken to those trying to make it happen here because they see the potential and yet they end up moving because its like Indy isn't ready.

We'll, I'm just looking for folks ready for change in Indiana, socially, politically, economically, etc.

Confessions of a Recovering Misogynist" by Kevin Powell

In the past few weeks, I've had the opportunity to have very brief conversations with Kevin Powell. Its very interesting to speak with someone with similar passions for community service. As someone who has been very transparent on her blog, I find this essay by Kevin refreshing. I just happen to see this on Facebook as someone posted it many months ago.
Thanks KP.


I AM A SEXIST MALE.

I take no great pride in saying this, I am merely stating a fact. It is not that I was born this way-rather, I was born into this male-dominated society, and consequently, from the very moment I began forming thoughts, they formed in a decidedly male-centered way. My "education" at home with my mother, at school, on my neighborhood playgrounds, and at church, all placed males in the middle of the universe. My digestion of the 1970s American popular culture in the form of television, film, ads, and music only added to my training, so that by as early as age nine or ten I saw females, includ…

Social Media: Keeping it Real

Social Media is an interesting creature. ONLINE: We're all so brilliant. We're all so healthy. We all are so religious. We love our mothers. We are perfect parents. Well, I'm here to tell ya, not me. I'm flawed. I'm quirky. I don't like to go to places where there's a lot of people. Quiet is cool. Me and God fight. Me and my daughter just had a horrible two years but we're back being where we should be. I've been physically unhealthy for the past two years and it was causing some depression. I couldn't figure it out. I don't like to be  deep, every damn day. I know what I know and there's a whole lotta stuff I'm clueless about. I'm a patient friend but I can shut you out without reason. I'm working on me.

 I think Social Media is missing a dose of realness and regular. I'm down for folks working to obtain their goals and doing it out loud. I get it. I know that it can help others. I'm just con…
