Daily Affirmations: “Everybody Is Not Out To Get Me”

“I will talk to people today”

Today and everyday I want you to get rid of that feeling of hate, fatigue and loneliness. Understand that everyone is not out to get you and use this in a good way. Sometimes, we go through harsh events which causes this feeling to come upon us, but please note that in life we need people, in business and in everything. People operate the whole world, so you must learned how to fellowship and deal with them. Separate the good from the bad, and be sure to know that everyone is not your enemy. This is a form of paranoia and could tarnish all relationships.

Episode 8: Dating In Memphis: “The Trainer”

“Girl he has to be dating everyone”

“See, all I do is train women to get in shape, it’s a shame I still attract all the wrong women who just want sexual relations.” He stood there irritated because he was one of the few who actually wanted a girlfriend in Memphis. You rarely see guys with this much passion, yet he was already categorized as a “thot”. There’s nothing worst than a male thot in Memphis, at least that’s what all the women think. Being one of these you either pick up the wrong woman and get betrayed by the right woman because, yeah she has been hurt by all the male “thots.”

The fact that my friend even has a multitude of women on his list providing training services put him in this predicament. But also the fact that it’s other trainers actually sleeping with the women made it excessively hard to get in a relationship as well. Dating women in Memphis is like one of those box of chocolates, you never know what you’re going to get until you bite into it. Yet a lot of what he was getting was indeed insecurities. I mean, he was training beautiful women and women of all sizes. What woman wouldn’t feel like this. What this woman needs to know indefinitely is this, what’s the big deal, it’s definitely all in your head.

Episode 7: Dating in Memphis “The Church Boy”

“Come to church”

“She gotta go to church if she date me, I’m looking for a wife and she must be Godly.” He said this with so much emphasis, tailored in a nice suit as well all sat in the living room of my best friend’s apartment. “There is no way I’m dating a girl who does not believe in going to church, my dad or mom not going for that.” He then explained that his father was a pastor of one of the biggest churches in Memphis and of course his mom being the First Lady she had to “ok” whomever came through her door. You could tell he came from a good family, knew his word and was very handsome to the eye. Church boys in Memphis have swag, I mean fashion is on one-hundred and you wouldn’t even know they wear designer. If you even look at these young men, you honestly have to be church prone. This guy was not letting up about church and I don’t blame him, keeping your spirituality with God alive is important and messing with the wrong person proves you have too much to lose. It’s not much to them, but they are still in the crowd when you date in Memphis.

Sincerely,

Kahdejah Evonne Stevens to release new devotional book Jan 30th.

“I have told multiple people that this is one of the best books I’ve ever written or ever will write”

I honestly have never been this excited in my life. This book will be a game changer and a transformer for many people. Honestly writing this book took a bit much out of me, to write something so spiritual filled with God’s message creates a lot of different attacks. But I kept moving forward in writing the book for I wanted to deliver the gospel. 30 Day Devotion is just not any ordinary book yet a book of guidance leading one back to their salvation or guiding them into the kingdom of heaven. I am elated that God has used me to deliver such a powerful message of faith and perseverance. I have told multiple people that this is one of the best books I’ve ever written or ever will write because it holds God’s message and nothing is greater than that.

So yes, I will be signing books January 30th, on the 30th day bringing 30 topics from our father in heaven himself helping you enter the kingdom through devotional fasting. There will be free food, great networking and excitement. I am overwhelmed with joy for what is about to happen and feel great to open my heart with knowledge from God to speak to many people from him through my books. I have high hopes in seeing you all there.

Sincerely,

“Working hard as Kahdejah Evonne Stevens”

“You failed, aite cool, charge it to the game get up and keep on going.”

To be in this life of entrepreneurship you have to step your game up. You gotta get it out the mud. At least that’s what I did. For a young nappy head girl form Binghamton and North Memphis, I had a lot to lose, I kept on going. You could say my skin was already made thick from the things I’ve seen, being an author and entrepreneurship just made it thicker. You have to work hard and want the best for yourself and others around you. Self employment is very rewarding. I have had my highs and lows with all of my small businesses that I’ve decided to open, but I just want to let you know that gives you knowledge. You failed, aite cool, charge it to the game get up and keep on going.

So today I just want to give you a little back ground about what entrepreneurship can do for you to what you will face. First, entrepreneurship won’t pay you $15 an hour, more like 30 to possibly $600 an hour or it could even go up to the thousands. In this game you just have to be smart. It takes marketing, planning and yes falling on your behind a few times. It takes hearing the word “No,” but having the courage to keep going so you can hear yes. It takes not getting the corporate jobs you want and still getting internships and mentors to gain experience. It takes being broke before you become rich. That’s what entrepreneurship takes. Yes, you’re going to take some loses, but how are you going to be a boss when you can’t fail? You have to know how it feels to fall on your behind and then continue to pray, come on now in this life you gotta have some tuff skin, all or nothing.

When I was a kid, I always wrote small stories, I had a vision and a strong mind set, that vision and never giving up on my God given talents turnt into over 30 book titles and small stories. You won’t believe it I have a new series coming out after I finish WOMAN, a book series for black women facing depression, that Memphis will love. To continue, as a kid, I’ve always loved art, in the back ground I’m still starting my online art business to sale massive paintings on eBay and to modern living downtown Memphis,Atlanta and New York, but you just have to keep going. Not to mention my love for psychology. Yet, this is entrepreneurship, I’ve failed in this game countless times. What I’m saying is you have to allow this life to shape you, grow that thick skin, yet trust God and continue to invest. He didn’t put that vision or all this money and passion into your head or hands for nothing, play your cards right my friends and ALWAYS ALWAYS, be blessed.

Sincerely,

Episode 6: Dating in Memphis “The Entrepreneur”

“All my friends have money, no you can’t sit with us”

“See I’m going to be honest sweety, my business failed 3 times before I became who I am, you got to have that drive to sale.” What business did he really have anyway I thought. You will see him all the time at the best spots in Memphis including all the cigar lounges, just that modern suit and tie man swag, but sometimes will rock a hat and tennis shoes. “If you want to talk more about business I could give you some pointers, you’re very attractive and impressive to me because you do the same thing I do, and I don’t get impressed often.” With these men you HAVE to be like them. It’s either you got it or you don’t and they are very picky, yet then again they are not, they just want the proper love yet fall in love more with a woman with ideas, successful ideas and entrepreneurship abilities at that, with an ounce of stability. To them, that is very attractive.

I’m not going to lie, the entrepreneurs in Memphis have the game down pack. They know how to manage money more and have an array of friends. If you would want to date any of them they would be the ones to date. They’re too busy to play games, but that doesn’t mean they are too quick to pick you. The mind of an entrepreneur is careful and only care free when it comes to enjoyment with no cost. It’s all about pros and cons when it comes to them, and they do this with every situation. But honestly, they do pick the best.

“See I don’t want a woman who is going to give me headache, I have a job to do. She has to be almost EXACTLY similar to me, hard working and also working or having a good credit score.” Lol an entrepreneur talks a good game, but he for sure also ran the game. He was his own boss, but fully about his business when he it came to his relationships and his woman. “Play is play but business is always business,” he said. To be with an entrepreneur you have to have drive, can’t be a weak woman or man messing with them, further more they need continuous support, love, communication and attention. Because deep down inside of them there is someone dying anyway, because they have been on this road for so long, and yes of course, they need and want someone they can spend all of that money with, as well as make happy “money times, and travel. They are honestly the best picks. Hard working men, sometimes difficult when it comes to women, but dangit they are loyal, lol and FINE!!!

Sincerely,

Episode 5: Dating in Memphis: “The College Girl”

“I’m looking for a baller”

“Hold on girl I gotta turn the paper in before we hit the club,” she said. I don’t even know why I’m going out with this child . She is my friend but a few months out of undergrad makes a huge difference, and she proved it. “Girl tonight, it’s this fine Nupe want me to come over, but he has a girlfriend, he told me they not really together though, I mean he calls me every now and then, he texts me all the time, I mean I like him but anyway yes girl he will be at LOVE tonight.” “The question is, are you even old enough for love, and how old is this Nupe?” She laughed and said,”now you know I have a fake I.D, why you playing.” I instantly got uncomfortable. Girl I didn’t even go to a club when I was her age like IN LOVE. She’s more ready than I have ever been. She was fly though, just “hot in the pants,” don’t know any better and breath smelled like pure Henny. Now she was offering me shots, I laughed and said “ girl I don’t drink like that no more.”

From her understanding I wasn’t turnt enough. We get in the car and she started going on and on about this promoter who was going to let us in free. “Mane how he look,” I said. “Girl tall and lean, and he stay with the latest fashion on, I mean fly, he promised me red bottoms.” Lol, red bottoms, tall & lean? “You talking about *****,” I said. “Yes him,” she said with excitement. “Girl he so fine, he got me a $300 booth tonight and some bottles, but I’m looking forward to seeing my Nupe.” This girl was head over hills for men, I mean she was banging everybody. Whoever she wanted she got with them, then she will hit me up all in her feelings about how somebody has played her. I will feel sorry cause I know how those college stages go. One time in school she got so intoxicated I had to literally carry her to her room. Then she started crying saying ******** was in the party with another female and won’t text her back. So much for the stick up college kid. She just didn’t know she was beautiful though, remind myself a lot of me.

“Come on girl there he go!” She got out the car and pulled her little shiny dress down to rush to the door to meet this guy. Now y’all wouldn’t even believe it. It was my friend, the same guy my home girl was infatuated with. Man, I tell you about these promoters. “Wassup girl,” he said. I looked at him and smirked, he knew exactly what I knew, but I wasn’t going to even say anything, don’t need him hitting me up asking me why I “blew up the spot.”

We get in the night club with this fake I.D she has saying she was 36 years old. Ha! If her dress wasn’t so small they probably wouldn’t turnt her around. Before we even make it in, shot after shot after shot, went down this college chicks throat, she even “drove the boat,” a few times from a few bottles the guy brought her. “There he go omg,” she said intoxicated, I guess it was the Nupe she was so excited about as well. I bend down to pick my wine glass off the ground and look up to she who she was running to, it was “The Player.” Dang….I knew these men were up to no good. But hey, that’s dating in Memphis. Now him and the promoter into it. I just sat back and laughed, this ought to be good.

Sincerely,
