My Experience: I received a text message from my friend Sean asking me to goto a Pr party for Kandi Burruss and Eric Benet. It was 6pm already I actually was on my way to workout.
I kept staring at the text message. Asking myself should I take this opportunity that’s presenting itself to me at this very moment in time. Or should just pass up a good opportunity.
Sean has become a good friend of mine over this short period of time. We grew closer in friendship the last 7 months I been here in Dallas. He is a talented person himself. Always following his passions in his life. Which I very much respect about him.
I showed my husband the text Sean sent me. Then I asked him if I should go. He was very supportive and agreed that I should go check it out for myself. Also, wished me a good time.
I been a stay home mom for so long. However, I always dream t of Public Relation type jobs. So to be in a place where all that was going on that night was Pr. I have to say it was one of the many great experiences of my life.
Sean introduced me to a few of his friends in the business, as well as he wanted me to really live in the moment of great possibilities.
A few times when Sean walked away I had to ask myself how did I get here. How can such and opportunity come a knockin. Then I remembered when watching the secret. Ask and it is given.
Opportunities never come or present themselves in ways that you expect them to come.
When you talk about it you therefore are putting it into existence. Therefore later it becomes your reality.
Sean has asked me numerous times to get out and enjoy Dallas. However, after a hard break up with a best friend before moving here 8 months ago, and leaving a state where I thought I was going to call home just to start all over was just simply exhausting to me. I truly just wasn’t ready. Just to go out and have fun again.
After months of Sean just really sharing with me how important is it for me to live out my dreams in hair and make up, and people if I can not even make the steps to want to embrace my new environment and city that I currently now reside in. How are my passions in my life going to become my reality then.
Sean and his friend Tee Bone. Tee Bone is a reality star himself. Has been on I Love New York. I am surrounded by them often being that we all train at the same gym. So there is no excuses for me passing up good people who care and who want to see me win in life.
Now that I know there’s more to life then me being a stay home mom. You lose sense of self when you don’t surround yourself with the things that truly make us happy. I love people. I love inspiring and making a difference in a person’s life.
Please do not get me wrong. Nothing wrong with being a stay home mom but my son is 14 old enough to stay home alone. So I did my job now. I love being a mom, and a wife but I am ready to live my passions and the life I been dreaming of.
I know that Public Relations of any type. Or just being out there impacting people in life. Is what I am truly passionate and good at! It brings profound joy to my heart and soul!
This experience of me stepping out of my shell as well as my comfort zone has taught me. That anything is possible. You have to have confidence, faith, and the actions to make it a reality. You have to really do something completely different.
I met so many wonderful and talented people last night and just like Sean said it’s only the beginning. Now that I got my feet wet just a little bit I can’t wait to get in deeper to see what comes next.
I just couldn’t believe how other Pr people were willing to take my name and number and willing to connect me to other people who are in the business or at least give you a direction onwhere to go.
So remember never allow yourself to fall short. If someone keeps pushing you to share positive experiences take them on their offer and see what it can bring you.
You don’t know until you try! Don’t give up on hope, passions, and the strong will to live a powerful life.
Fulfillment is everything in life!
Eric Benet, Kandi Burruss, Lil Twist – Share their new music with the city of Dallas at All Star’s Lounge
Eric Benet and Kandi Burruss share new music by giving us all a taste of their new albums coming out this month.
What a night it was! Everyone gathered at the All Star’s Lounge here in Downtown Dallas.
Where Eric Benet, Kandi Burruss, Lil’ Twist from Lil Wayne’s record label all made a guest appearance.
We all gotta chance to listen to the wonderful new music these to singer and song writer’s offer us on there new upcoming albums available in stores this Holiday season.
We all got to listen to Eric Benet and Kandi Burruss sing live up close and personal. It was absolutely a wonderful night in downtown Dallas last night. While making their way across the country.
I absolutely enjoyed myself while in the company of Sean Owens, Krista Kelley and few other of their friends. So many Pr people under one roof.
While Eric Benet was being interviewed. All Star Lounge served food, drinks, and nice music was being played in the background. Which made for a wonderful and deliteful night.
I myself got to meet a few of my friend Sean Owens PR friends. I met quite a few models that night that were there as well to represent their Pr company that they work under.
My experience with Eric Benet was such a short quick but rather delightful moment I might add. The room was slightly cold I was kind of shaking to the coolness of the room but also from the fact that he had his arms wrapped around me. He mentioned “Wow you are shaking!” I said ” Yes I am so nervous!” after he said so was he. My nerves then went away.
He looked right into my eyes….. and I swear that moment was lost for a second. What a nice guy. Beautiful person. I have to say and incredible singer.
He definitely is a class act! So you don’t own any of his music you need to google and and check out a few tracks on Youtube if you can. What a beautiful voice that man has.
As he was being interviewed a young man with the name Lil’ Twist entered the room with his mother and entourage and then signed autographs for his fans. As well as took photos with his many fans.
I had no clue who this young man was until someone explained that he is new talent from Dallas. I recently just moved here. I am from the Chicago, Detroit area. So when it comes to the talent of Dallas I would not know who that might be these days. Now that I am resident I am doing my best to learn who’s hot and learn the music culture of this city.
The night ended with beautiful Kandi Burruss singing her tracks giving us a feel what’s on her album and what each song meant to her as she wrote the album.
So you got to see a fun and more personal side of Kandi Burruss. She was very fun and down to earth and always smiling.
This was a great experience to have met her and to be able to be photographed with such a talented woman.
All in all it was my first PR party experience. This was in a club setting but not a club going event. Very classy and cool mood that went on through the night with finger food, and drinks.
Quite a bit of photo sessions and interviews were constantly going on through the night.
Sean Owen’s let me a bit into his world. I have to say what a world it truly is. I can only imagine what comes next!
My life in Dallas after all turned out to be full of wonderful people, great experience’s and powerful connections!
When you think that after being a stay home mom for so many years that my life would unfold the way it has the 8 months I been here.
When you think dreams don’t come true they do! Always when you least expect it!
When you think that your life is reached it worst…. it’s then and only then your life is just going through changes of growth for self improvement.
All dreams are possible. You have to believe have faith and be dedicated to your passions and know that at any moment your life can open up for you!
Fantasia, Eric Benet, and Kandi Burruss will join forces for tour this Fall/Winter 2010-2011.
