While pondering on what in the world I’m gonna say and how Im gonna say it to really get my point across, I was made aware that while my friends and personal associates are already aware of this and other things about me, my new friends and listeners here at PimpHop.com will find this information to be of interest as it is the perspective that I will be writing from…it plays a critical part in the reason why this opportunity was presented to me to begin with as someone thought that I was special and of high value…
Some might call me a gypsy the way I move from place to place and job to job, but I believe we are destined for so much more than going through the motions of a job we hate.
Vegas was never even on my radar and while I hated it when I first moved here, the “Vegas Experience” has started to grow on me!
Living in a 24 hr town.. the possibilities and opportunities are endless.. You just have to be willing to look for them and like anything worth having.. pay your dues!!
I’m a free spirit and an entrepreneur and while I’ve always been a hard worker I’ve always been a terrible employee!
Keep throwing spaghetti at the wall of life.. because one day something will stick.. you’ll fall in love with the opportunity and you’ll never look back!
