#LONGASSPOST—I told myself when I bought this book to add to my collection I’d share how it helped shape and mold my thinking from a creative and unorthodox perspective, and today it means much more than ever.
So...It was about 4-5 years ago, fresh from @templeuniv , running around applying for every job, just finished up one internship and was looking for the next. It was until @gobraithwaite welcomed me aboard that I would later come into contact with one of @j1berger‘s best pieces of work. Part of the deal while at BW was at the end of the internship, we would have to make present a final presentation to the entire senior team, including the CEO, on a topic of some sort relating to PR/Marketing/Advertising. Initially I was stuck on what topic to present nor did I want to just do something typical or expected. I remover asking one of the leaders could I do my presentation on #Contagious and I remember her saying if I could make it work then to go ahead and shoot for it.
I was walking back to my area, BW had this long red table that was in the middle of the office where all of us interns would sit and do our work (@peachie_kii can attest to this!!) and the book was sitting atop one of the many piles of books in the office—the color alone caught my eye, I picked it up and it was on from there. After reading the first couple pages, I was hooked and couldn’t put it down, which I supposed worked in my favor considering I finished sooner than I’d anticipated.
Weeks pass and I still feel like I needed just a little more support for ny presentation. One night while at work, I just so happened to be in between reading and watching @thebreakfastclub and NIPSEY was the guest. They were talking about his latest project and how he’d been selling his latest body of work for $100 a pop. @DJenvy then asked how’d he come up with the idea to begin with and wa-la... This was when I knew this guy was more than just a rapper..more than an artist or entertainer...he was/is a thinker, wise beyond measure, and wanted more and knew he was capable off more. I was, and still til this day, am. INSPIRED. | #TheMarathonContinues 👑🏁
