Enjoying The Gift Of Communication


HI THERE! How are you FEELing? HOPEFUL? REJUVENATED? PASSIONATE? YES! Let's embrace all the feelings that usher in a perspective we can enjoy.  Our perspective is by our design as we live forward and remember the honest feelings that repeat! Everything we feel can empower us to help. Help ourselves, help others and help, not to hinder a new process that could be inevitable as well as great. 

Let's aim to be thankful as we speak our intentions and go into actions that complete our goals. YES! We are ALIVE! We are spreading our best energy and we are ready for a memorable 24 hours! Our best energy has the amazing possibility of opening new doors today. Even the same doors  can have a new great effect on your life's journey. FEEL free. FEEL capable. FREE happy to be YOU. Let's enjoy the beauty that comes with having compassion and relating well to one another. Create your perspective as a perspective that you love sharing as it brings you closer to those you GET to share it with. Most likely, their perspective will be relatable to YOU and hopefully grow an awesome exchange of ideas. Ideas that lead to fun, prosperity, clarity, cohesive community, peace and unity for the duration of the relation.

Let's apply our favorite things. Let's apply our favorite emotions. Let's apply our favorite self -- to every task present. As I open my heart to have  a better understanding of those around me, I too learn more about my own destiny. I am thankful to be able to expand someone else's joy as I raise my imagination to new levels for my joy. Possibilities are endless when the understanding and connection begins. I believe JOY is always available. It's inevitable! FEEL IT! FORWARD IT! NEW DAYS are not promised but boy OH boy - when we get that NEW one- it's something to celebrate.

 As always, I am very grateful for the Frequent TRYers that have returned to get inspiring concepts, healthy recipes and reviews of products that soothe the spirit. MAY YOUR CHOSEN ENERGY REVEAL THE GOODNESS YOUR LIFE REQUIRES. Have faith and have fun! Congratulations on the all the big ideas that you'll be sharing with folks that YOU enjoy and THEY in return enjoy your presence. YAAY! Life is happening, let's welcome the responsibility of bringing our own personal good energy and skills to the tasks at hand. 


KNOW that what feels good for you, is for you. You will be glad you did and smile about it later. Congratulations on everything powerful that is working through you, with you and for you:)


Have a wonderful DECEMBER 2014 and JANUARY 2015 !!! IT'S YOURS! See you soon.

A Beautiful Mind welcomes

DR. RENEE
(England / lllinois)






To show a diverse reach of readers that everything is possible all over the globe, what states or countries have you lived in? What state do you live in now?

Michigan, St. Maarten Dutch West Indies, England, Illinois. I live in Illinois now.




1. If there's a song that reflects your vibe, what would that song be? Do you meditate, pray or/and take time to mentally relax? If so, what part of the day? For how long? 

"Not Making Sense, Making Faith" by Donald Lawrence I meditate, pray everyday I meditate in the morning as I creatively visualize my future and I pray every night before I go to bed.



2. As a Medical Doctor, Social Media Guru, PR and Manager, tell us about 2 great projects that you were apart of in your lifetime and what inspired you to go after those goals? 

The first baby I delivered and the reaction of the mom to what I did inspired me to become Dr. Renee Matthews. I am currently working with TROOP and watching them this year on the BET Awards inspires me to work hard for them everyday.


3.What early part of your life's journey prompted you to create The DrRenee Daily and have it become such a necessary outlet for you? 

When I first joined twitter I noticed that other people did something similar and I thought this was a great way to get more positive information to the masses.


4. With some of your successful experiences allowing you to connect with other purposeful people, what are some of your daily activities ? 

After meditation I check my email and I start responding. I check my deadlines to make certain I have all of my columns submitted on-time (I currently write for 5 online publications MadameNoire.com, BlackandMarriedwithKids.com, DiaryofaFirsttimemom.com, BlackDoctor.org, and Goodenoughmother.com). I hit the lakefront and that is where I get my great ideas for how to further the brands I work with myself and my clients. In the evenings I usually have events to attend and then I come home and work until I fall asleep.



5. What do you do for fun? What new fun thing would you like to try? 

I like to go to the movies, theater, travel and concerts. I am fortunate that I love my job so it is not work for me. I love seeing my clients perform live. I have always wanted to sing in the recording studio booth and record a song for my personal collection.


6. One thing on my Life List 
 is... to get married and give birth.


7. What/Who keeps you motivated in this ever changing world? 

All the young people in my life. I mentor kids and I am a Girl Scout leader for 5 and 6 year old girls, just realizing that they are watching what I do motivated me to try and make this place a better place for these kids that will one day be adults.


8. What are 2 qualities that you prefer and respect about a mate at this point in your life? 

Honesty and Ambition. Let's face it no one likes a liar and I have a lot of things going on so the right man will not be intimidated by it but he will be just as ambitious as I am and we will soar to the top together.



9. Who gave you 1 really good piece of advice early on and what was it? 

My parents said that I could do whatever I wanted to do as long as I worked hard for it.


10. What piece of business advice would you like to share? 

 If you want it, work hard for it and never give up.


11. What is NEXT for you in 2014, 2015 and beyond? 

2014 continuing recording my radio show and writing for MadameNoire.com, BlackandMarriedwithKids.com, DiaryofaFirsttimemom.com, Goodenoughmother.com, BlackDoctor.org and my own blog AskDrRenee.info, continuing to help TROOP and Steven Russell Harts get back in front of their fans. 2015 and beyond I will debut the Ask Dr. Renee Show on TV in syndication across the country and continue to be the #PeoplesDoctor informing as many people as I can about their health, wealth and happiness.

 MS. NöNE
(NY/FL)






To show a diverse reach of readers that everything is possible all over the globe, what states or countries have you lived in? What state do you live in now? 

I was actually born in Hollywood, Florida. I lived out in Ft Lauderdale, Florida for a few years when I was much younger. Then moved to Brooklyn, NY and have been here ever since. 





1. If there's a song that reflects your vibe, what would that song be? Do you meditate, pray or/and take time to mentally relax? If so, what part of the day? For how long?

The song that best reflects my vibe would have to be the Theme song to the Golden Girls. 

It is very important to me to mentally relax. Especially living and working in a big city. Most morning I take a few minutes to mentally prepare myself before I even get out of bed. Prepping my plan of attack for the day. I pray every night with my son.



2. Tell us about 2 great projects (from any part of your life) that you were proud to be apart of in this lifetime.

My new album that I have been working on for many years with Anthony Giles. It is the first musical project that I believe reflects me as an artist. 


My videos "Miss Celie" and "What I Mean." We were able to create 2 great videos with virtually no budget. Just imagination and ingenuity. 



3.What early part of your life's journey prompted you to become a Singer/Songwriter and have it become such a necessary outlet for you?


Performing as a child in church and for family and family definitely prompted me to become a singer/songwriter. Just seeing the reaction I got from people when I opened my mouth the song became addictive. Also listening to great music growing up from all genres provided me with escape as I grew up in the projects of Queens, NY and never felt like I fit in. I wanted to be that outlet for other kids like me one day.




4. With some of your successful experiences such as releasing the amazing single "What I Mean (I Put In Work)", being a BET Music Matters Artist and being a #BlackGirlsRock red carpet host, allowing you to connect with other purposeful people, what are some of your daily activities?

I am a working musician in New York City. Most days I am preparing for a gig where I am singing somewhere in the city with a band. I am constantly reviewing the charts, seeing what songs are popular that I might want to perform. Also doing research on make-up faces I can try for performances. Anthony Giles and I often get together to write and record demos in my home studio in New Jersey either to keep for my project or shop to other artists. I'll spend time blasting out news and clips to my contacts to keep them abreast on what I've been up to. Going on auditions for commercials. Taking meetings with people who can further my career. Helping my son with his homework.



5. What do you do for fun? What new fun thing would you like to try?

Performing is fun for me.

I would definitely like to travel more for fun. A lot of the traveling I have done in the past has been for work.



6. One thing on my Life List is to perform at Red Rock in Colorado.



7. What/Who keeps you motivated in this ever changing world?


My son keeps me motivated. Many people think that once you have children then your dream gets put on hold. But having my son gave me a great boost in motivation. I have something to work for. Not only my future but his as well.



8. What are 2 qualities that you prefer and respect about a mate at this point in your life?

A sense of humor is a must!

Someone who has a passion of their own and works towards achieving it. Ambition!



9. Who gave you 1 really good piece of advice early on and what was it?


I used to be a little shy when I first started pursuing my career as a teen. My first manager said if I'm going to call myself a singer I'd better be ready to sing at the drop of a dime! No hesitation. She would have me sing in parking lots, pizzerias, barber shops...I got over my shyness quick!



10. What piece of business advice would you like to share?

Be kind to the people who work for you. I've learned that if people like you as a person they will go above and beyond for you. If they don't like you they will just do the bare minimum to get their check.



11. What is NEXT for you in 2014, 2015 and beyond?

I just want to continue to make music that makes me happy and as my fan base grows I hope to inspire others. I want to eventually develop and discover new artists as well as create television shows that showcase young urban adults. I plan to contribute generously to the Fresh Air Fund which takes inner city kids out of the confines of their brick buildings and in to nature. I was apart of the program when I was younger and it helped me dream bigger.



12. Choose 1: High Heel, Low Heel OR No Heel? High heel

Choose 1: Novels, Biographies, Inspirational Book OR Blog ? Novel

Choose 1: Fresh Fruit, Fruit Smoothie OR Fresh Fruit Juiced? Fresh Fruit Juiced



13. What ONE word would best describe YOU right now?

Ready



Optional SideNote: In 2 sentence or less, what do you think of the YAAY YOU Blogazine?

Add the flour-spice mixture to the pumpkin mixture and gently fold the batter together until it is just combined (it's ok if there are a few lumps).Divide the batter evenly among the prepared muffin cups and sprinkle the top of each muffin generously with the turbinado sugar. Bake until golden brown and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 20 to 24 minutes. Cool the muffins in the pan for a few minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.

A Beautiful Mind welcomes

JOY COOK
(NC/CA)





To show a diverse reach of readers that everything is possible all over the globe, what states or countries have you lived in? What state do you live in now?



I have only lived in North Carolina, and California, however, I have traveled all over North America and the Caribbean.  I currently live in North Carolina.



1.  If there's a song that reflects your vibe, what would that song be?  Do you meditate, pray or/and take time to mentally relax?  If so, what part of the day? For how long?


A song that reflects my vibe is by Gentleman (Reggae Artist) Intoxication.

The power of life and death is in the tongue and it's important to start and end your day positively no matter what has gone on in between.  I pray and meditate daily, I start my day with the affirmation, "Thank God for a new day"! That has been my first tweet of the day since 2008.  I spend the first 10 minutes of my day in a state of gratitude before my feet event hit the floor.  At night I pray and intermittently through out the day. 

2. Tell us about 2 great projects that you were proud to be apart of in this lifetime.

I am proud of the work we did with the White House acclaimed Healthcare Faith Community Summit.  I am also proud of being invited to the White House by President Barack Obama for the arrival ceremony of the Prime Minister of Great Britain and Ireland.

These projects have contributed to my brand presence and online reputation.


3.What early part of your life's journey prompted you to create JoyCookPr.com and have it become such a necessary outlet for you?

I was born in Hollywood, CA and my Dad was a music executive for Capitol Records, so I grew up around television and film.

I am a life long publicist, from writing, producing, and promoting my own play in the 2nd grade to having my own radio show in college.  I have always had the passion to create things and take people and their businesses to the next level.

4. With some of your successful experiences allowing you to connect with other purposeful people, what are some of your daily activities ?



I am a life long learner, my mentor sends me daily emails with self development strategies.  I also have a five year plan and keep my daily activities focused around those goals.  As a mother, one of the highlights of my day is to speak with my daughter. She is a freshman in college.  

It is also a priority everyday to choose one person who I want to either expand or create a relationship with and then reach out to them.

5.  What do you do for fun? What new fun thing would you like to try?

I love to travel, I find experiencing different cultures in one of the things that gives me the most joy.  I would like to try driving on the Autobahn.  I love to drive....and drive fast so driving on the autobahn is definitely on my "to do list".

6.  One thing on my Life List is...

Wow there are so many but one thing on my life list is to travel through Italy and experience any and every samples of red wine I can.  I am a vino lover and no better place to go than to the "mother land" of vino!


7.  What/Who keeps you motivated in this ever changing world?

My amazing family and my mentors keep me motivated in this changing world!


8.  What are 2 qualities that you prefer and respect about a mate at this point in your life?

Stability and honesty, in the world we live in with social media and so much access to "information" it's important that my mate live in the reality of life not just online.

9.  Who gave you 1 really good piece of advice early on and what was it?

Janice Bryant Howroyd, the first African-American woman to grow her business into a billion dollar business gave me the advice of a lifetime, "Everything you NEED to be...everything you need to be..YOU already have.


10. What piece of business advice would you like to share?

JUST GO!  I think we have a tendency to over think things and wait for the right time and for things to be perfect.  There is never a right time!  Just GO....do it now.


11. What is NEXT for you in 2014, 2015 and beyond?

We are excited that we have just moved into a new space and our international reach is expanding.  We are finishing 2014 strong signing a record amount of clients.

I am releasing my first book (you heard it here first) in the early part of 2015.


12.   Choose 1: High Heel, Low Heel OR No Heel? 

         High Heels....we are all closer to the stars in high heels!

        Choose 1: Novels, Biographies, Inspirational Book OR Blog ? 

         Inspirational Book

AMBER LEE
(FL/NY)




To show a diverse reach of readers that everything is possible all over the globe, what states or countries have you lived in? What state do you live in now?  

I was actually born in Hollywood Florida. I lived out in Ft Lauderdale, Florida for a few years when I was much younger. Then moved to Brooklyn, NY and have been here ever since. 

1. If there's a song that reflects your vibe, what would that song be? Do you meditate, pray or/and take time to mentally relax? If so, what part of the day? For how long?

My first love is music. R&B music to be exact. When I need/want to relax my mind I throw on some Anita Baker. Her voice soothes my mind, body, and soul. No pun intended. Lol! 

2. Tell us about 2 great projects that you were proud to be a part of in your lifetime.

1) Urbanworld Film Festival presented by BET Networks- I am currently a Theater Manager for this annual event that takes place at AMC Theater on 34th street in NYC. I started off as a volunteer and was quickly promoted to Theater Manager. 

2) Super Bowl 2014… I worked as a Brand Ambassador for the Super Bowl Host Committee and their Mobile tour called “Join the Huddle Tour”. We traveled to a number of cities throughout NY and NJ promoting the Super Bowl with a number of great activities for the public! 

3. What early part of your life's journey prompted you to create Amber Events Marketing and have it become such a necessary outlet for you?  

I used to intern for Universal Motown Records in my college years. While there, I assisted an A&R Executive (at the time) with a weekly R&B Music event showcasing some pretty amazing artists; Trey Songz, Chrisette Michele, Mya, Ne-yo… the list goes on & on. From assisting with this event, I grew to love and have a passion for creating ideas, concepts, and marketing strategies for events. 

4. With some of your successful experiences allowing you to connect with other purposeful people, what are some of your daily activities? 

I think it’s important to build and maintain relationships in this industry…. Actually, in ANY industry! 99% of the time, it’s about ‘who you know’. Not to sound cliché … but it’s true! So I do my best to create time to have drinks, brunch, lunch, or dinner with those people who I want to keep at arm’s reach. 

5. What do you do for fun? What new fun thing would you like to try? 

I love playing spades, roller-blading, going to live music events and comedy shows….. I love to laugh. I recently went bowling, and I like it!! I think this may be a new fun activity I’ll add to my list! I also want to try horseback riding… although I’m a little scared of horses, it looks fun! 

6. One thing on my Life List is... I want to travel more. I would love to (and planning to) visit Paris, Bermuda, and Jamaica. 

7. What/Who keeps you motivated in this ever changing world? 

My Mom… I think that’s self-explanatory. I love her more than life itself! 

8. What are 2 qualities that you prefer and respect about a mate at this point in your life?

Honesty and Faithfulness. 

9. Who gave you 1 really good piece of advice early on and what was it? 

I would have to say my longtime friend/brother Lennie Bennett aka Kel Spencer… google him! Lol …no really, google him! Ha! He told me and continues to instill in me, the importance of hard work, creating and developing my own brand, and motivating me to come up with innovative ideas to enhance my brand. Can’t really think of one particular thing, but overall, he’s been one of the people in my corner cheering me on! 

10. What piece of business advice would you like to share? 

As I mentioned earlier, maintain and build relationships! I cannot stress how important this is in business. 90% politics, 10% business. 

11. What is NEXT for you in 2014, 2015 and beyond?

I currently work in Advertising Sales for BET Networks and Centric, so I will probably give the 30+ accounts I manage most of my attention for the rest of 2014. In 2015, I hope to have my brand expand throughout this company, and be able to contribute to the success of BET/Centric going forward, while still creating my own events in my spare time.
