Miss CEO Presents: Me’Ocia Rumph

Meet Me’Ocia Rumph of ‘To Be Alluring Beauty’ a tenacious Charlotte, NC based make-up artist, to be alluring is to be powerfully and mysteriously attractive or fascinating. As a beauty brand and company that is what Me’Ocia wants every client who comes to her to take with them. Make up doesn’t “hide” who you are as most people like to say, make up enhances your beauty and brings out a fierceness some didn’t even know they had within themselves.

 

When you are passionate about something it is a must that you bring your passions to life, especially when it comes to your career if you don’t follow through on your passions you’ll spend the rest of your life working to fulfill someone else passion. Miss CEO knew from a young age that working for someone else was something she couldn’t and would do, thus the birth of ‘To Be Alluring’. “In an industry like beauty it is a lot easier and a lot more rewarding to have your own company/brand than it is to work for someone else.  I know what I want out of life and nothing or no one will ever be able to get in the way of that. This brand is and always will be so much bigger than just me and I’m going to do everything in my power to make it as big and successful as it can possibly be.”

 

When you truly enjoy what, you do it will not feel like a “Job” or “work”, because every day that you wake up and get to do what you love is a reward within itself. What you are doing without even knowing is impacting the world and someone can be motivated to do the same by following their passion. “My biggest motivator is knowing that God did not give me this talent or bring me this far for no reason. Having a career that does not feel like work and allows me to empower, motivate, and sometimes just be the friend that my client needs is all the motivation I need.” “My clients. Although it is my job to give them a certain confidence that they may not have otherwise my clients inspire me more than they’ll ever know. Even on my worst days my clients are what keep me motivated.”

 

We all leave an impact on the world whether we know it or not, we all should strive to leave a positive impact ultimately the way we impact others will become a part of our legacy. “I want to make a lasting impression on anyone I touch through my artistry rather it be physically doing their makeup or them just seeing my work. I feel like there’s so much more to makeup and the beauty industry in general than the act of doing the service.” – Miss CEO

 

Within the next 5 years Miss CEO Me’Ocia see her brand growing beyond makeup artistry and into a cosmetic company. She plans to become a licensed aesthetician so that she can provide more services such as lash extensions, Botox, waxing, etc., however her long-term goal is to start my own cosmetic line. Until then make sure you book your appointment with her for an alluring experience

Guest Blog by Terrell Jones: How to Overcome Any Problem.

How To Overcome Any Problem?

img_8295

Since we’re human, that guarantee’s one thing will happen throughout college and our life…

We’ll make mistakes or run into some type of drama, controversy or challenge. That’s why it’s important to stay aways from the BOZO’s and surround yourself with ambitious people within a circle of like-minded students.

BUT THAT’S NOT ENOUGH!

You also need a few other tricks up your sleeve to overcome problems you’ll face.

Here’s 3 secrets you can use for the next problem you run into:

1) Focus on the bigger picture – When drama starts or you run into a brick wall, don’t let that stop you. Immediately think “Ok, what’s important here and what do I need to focus on to reach my goal?” It’s stupid that so many people continue to spend time on things that really don’t matter on the path to achieving their goals. I know that’s not you, but how well have you really been staying focused on the dream or goal in the mist of problems?

2) Be conscious about your thoughts – It’s important that you noticed where your thoughts are going. Fearful? Angry? Sad? Nervous? Be willing to explore that and ask yourself “Is that really true?” Take a step back and look at your thought’s from a 3rd party perspective and analyze if those thoughts and emotions are going to help you reach your outcome.

3) Anticipate problems before you have them – This one is best when you can do it ahead of time. For me, I like to wake up in the morning and ask “What can go wrong today?” I know it sounds negative but one of the most important skills in becoming successful is anticipating problems and being able to overcome them. So even if you still do run into the challenge, you’re better equipped to handle it because you thought about it already.

These are a few things that work for me and the hundreds of students I’ve been blessed to train through my books, blogs, speeches and social media platforms.

Namaste

Whatever comes into your life, let it come don’t question it just enjoy the experience.
Whatever stays, let it stay and be thankful.
Whatever goes, LET IT GO don’t harp on what would’ve happened, because when it leave it’s making room for better that’s sure to come.
We tend to harp on the things that leave our lives as if they were meant to stay, when in reality everything that we need will stay. We are like trees, if we stay grounded and hydrated (water, self-love and knowledge) we’ll be alright. Just like trees we grow and change throughout our experiences every season, some days may be beautiful and easy-going others may be dark and gloomy, but one thing still remains the same and that’s growth within who we are.

Letting things go without questioning it should be natural, because a Tree is still a tree with or without leaves. Experiences are just that, it stays with you for a lifetime, However; the things that the experience may bring (heartache, people etc) may not always stay and that’s okay.

You are a tree in this universe, hydrate yourself properly and continue to grow.

Miss CEO presents: Najee Brown

img_8055  Meet Najee Brown of Jalice & Co., offering Public Relations and Event Planning services from organizing personal or branding events, photo shoots, videoshoots and websites to writing press releases, social media management and network building. “I’m an event planner and publicist. I often refer to myself and my circle of like-minded friends as “creatives”. A creative is someone who thinks outside of the box and allows those thoughts and ideas to manifest into beautiful things whether it be through events, painting, dancing, poetry, blogging, etc.” -Najee Brown

Jalice & Co. is a boutique Public Relations and Event Planning firm. Najee’s vision behind the company is to offer other small businesses and individuals of the fashion and arts industries assistance in branding themselves through special events and creative marketing. The logo is a crown symbolizing the importance of her brand as “Queen Naj” and ensuring that every client or partner walks away with the thoughts of being treated like royalty and glorified as the King or Queen that they are. I love Najee’s vision behind her company, essentially we are all Queens and Kings in our own rights and her Brand as Queen Naj is a refreshing take on “Treat other how you want to be treated”. In my opinion perception is everything, how someone perceives you to be is often how they treat you, Najee is nothing short of Miss CEO.

The Miss CEO series is Women’s Empowerment. Highlighting Educated, Young, Talent, Fierce Queens who’ve turned their passion into a business. I ask every Queen the same question: What does Women Empowerment mean to you? And why is it important in today’s society? “Women empowerment is supporting and honoring the beauty, work ethics and spirits of all women; no matter the color, shape or size. Women empowerment is so important to me and more importantly in our male dominated society because if we don’t push and motivate one another than who will? Women have always been seen as less than or incapable of completing the same tasks of men when in actuality this world continue to revolves because of the presence of women. Procreation, teaching, understanding are just a few of the things men rely on from us. As a black woman, I already have a double negative in the eyes of society. I love seeing other black women move beyond that stigma and prove those who doubt us wrong. We’re amazing, we’re beautiful, we’re powerful and it’s up to us to make that a point.” -Najee Brown, Miss CEO

Stating your own brand/company is not easy, as Najee stated we live in a male dominated society where it isn’t expected for a woman to excel on the same level as a man. I applaud Najee and other Women who are taking the risk of starting a company and fueling their passions! It motivates me to see someone’s hard work and determination come to life. Najee has always had a Knack for event planning, she truly enjoyed creating the aesthetics for an event, organizing every detail behind the scenes and watching her vision come to life. Najee entered college knowing that she wanted to open her own facility so entrepreneurship was never a question, however; she was on the wrong path. We all go through a phase in life where what we think we should be doing overshadows what we’re passionate about, and college is where you question EVERYTHING that confirm or denies that path that we’re on.

Self evaluation is always the answer. “I began to study more about myself with the help of the career department and after many conversations with mentors, I realized the arts and communication field was my calling. I chose to focus in Public Relations as I knew I was a strong writer and had an interest in marketing. I was involved in more than 12 organizations on campus all of which I helped coordinate large and small-scale events. By the conclusion of my sophomore year I knew events was something I could see myself pursuing full-time. By the summer of my Junior year I launched Jalice & Co.” Najee’s biggest inspiration in flesh would be her mother. As a black, female entrepreneur she instilled so many values and lessons that she connects to her personal and business endeavors.

Within the next 5 years, Najee will continue work towards making Jalice & Co. Bi-Coastal and building a facility to house all of the aspects of the company. “My goals for the company for 2017 are to continue to build and strengthen clientele relationships, have 2-3 branding events each month, begin to network within the Atlanta event and entertainment market and seek an internship with a wedding planner to gain more experience in preparation to adding wedding planning to our list of services.” Until then please keep up with Najee on her journey of success at the follow below ( also book her for to create your next event):

Advice from Miss CEO: “My advice to anyone trying to build a brand or company is never hesitate or be afraid to make decisions that can potentially benefit you even if that means at the expense of other situations or relationships. Stay focused and determined, work hard of course but always remain humble, always seek more knowledge, NEVER stop learning. The biggest lesson I learned in 2016 is to listen to your intuition and don’t allow your happiness or success to be at the expense of others. Find something that you can use as an escape when needed and reflect on your progress daily, weekly, monthly, etc. Follow YOUR dreams and turn that passion into profit!”

Casting Call: Leading Role?

 Are you leading someone to believe that they’ll get the starring role in your love life when really they’re just an extra? Someone you have no intention on making it official with, but you want them around for conversation or what have you? If so then why?

 It’s ok to develop friendship, but once the conversations and vibe exceed the boundaries of a platonic friendship. Your both entering a dangerous territory especially if one does not have the intention of making the other their significant other. We set the tone for every relationship (business, personal etc) we decide to enter, if there are no clear boundaries set it leaves room for you to be put into an uncomfortable place.

I’m specifically talking about romantic relationship/friendships. Most of us should be in a place where we’re thinking long-term, finding one person to start a new chapter in life with so on and so forth. If you’re not at this point in life you’ll get there eventually, it doesn’t take long to determine if you see a friendship turning into something romantic or stay platonic, so why keep entertaining a strictly platonic relationship with romantic behavior? This is how people “catch feelings”.

Leading someone on with empty promises, knowing exactly what they want to hear and saying that to keep them from feeling the need to pursue someone else. That’s selfish and inconsiderate, you’re not concerned about how they feel as long as your needs are met. You get more points being honest and setting boundaries in the beginning verse stringing someone along with promises of becoming your special person.

If you find yourself being caught up as an extra in someone’s love story and there is no clear apparent path to you becoming their leading lady/man, I hope you understand how important you are to ever be someone’s extra. You are a star honey someone’s only co star, you shouldnt be looking for someone to test your water, look for someone to dive in and create beautiful waves.

Are you Reflecting or Living in the Past?

img_7874

Welcome to 2017,

Where all of the things you were stressing over should no longer be a factor. If someone wronged you in 2016 let it go, Someone owes you money? Let it go, Someone broke your heart? Let it go. If you decide to harbor the actions of a situation that you had no control over, you’re giving power to negative energy and that negativity will begin to eat at you until your enthusiasm, peace, creativity, and self-love starts deteriorating.

This is the time in which we reflect on how well we’ve handled situations, which situations made is stronger and broke us down. Reflect on what made us feel uncomfortable and what kept us at ease, reflect on certain habits (Good and bad) and most important! Reflect on the lessons we’ve learned. Now there’s a difference between Reflection and Living in the past, in my opinion living in the past is exactly that. You’re constantly bringing up your past in every aspect of your life, not in the form of growth more so as a stagnant point in which you refuse to move from. All around it brings and unsettling negative vibe into your life, that could rub off on those who are around you.

Reflection on the other hand is much-needed especially if you’re on a journey of self-love and healing. I reflect on how I felt, where I was when I felt that why and then compare it to where I am now. It show me that the choices I am making are indeed the right ones, when you reflect on certain situations/circumstances you apply what you’ve learned from whatever happens to what you’re currently doing to make sure you have a different outcome. When you’re living in the past you hardly ever take the time to see what you’ve learned or what you’re willing to change. It’s easy for someone to tell you “You’ve grown so much” but until you yourself can acknowledge it it’ll mean nothing.

This week I want to encourage you all to reflect instead of saying “New Year, New Me” try New Year, BETTER Me”. Have a conversation with someone (or yourself) to look back and see how much you’ve grown! It’s the conversation in my opinion that determines if you have indeed grown as an individual. At the end you should say/hear “Wow I’m proud of the person you’re evolving into” verses “you’re still the same ole person”.

“Everybody looks at you strange saying you changed, like you worked that hard to stay the same” – Shawn Carter

I Wish you all a prosperous year, may you protect your peace, cultivate love and release creativity! You don’t need a New Year to evolve into who you already are, Just look inside and tap into it. I love you all

She is Poetry.

img_7089

In a world that’s still learning the alphabet,
She was poetry.
The mystery that laid inside, behind that smile and those pretty brown eyes.
Was something he was determined to uncover
She provided a vibe like no other,
He said being with you I found peace and stability
I’ve found the motivation to become a better version of me.
It’s like wishing upon a star in your universe,
God heard me and said this is exactly where you need to be.
You intrigue me, feed me knowledge as our bodies intertwine
Thighs, eyes, lips, face, chests
yours… mine
Once you meet her she’ll leave you mesmerized,
In due time she will unlock the hidden treasures of your mind.
Who is she?
She is me, and he read my soul like poetry.

-Jay

Let’s Be Real.

 First and Foremost, I want to apologize for not posting when my goal for November was to push out more content. Let’s Be Real , life happens and honestly I’ve been going through a rough 2 weeks.

 I’ve acknowledged that I have a problem with dealing with my emotions when things bother me. I am actively working on not sweeping things under the rug and voicing how I feel, and it’s challenging as hell! When you always in the back of your mind felt like you’re bothering people by venting, or want to strictly vent and having someone tell you what you should/shouldn’t do. You have moments of weakness, I don’t want your advice I just need to vent before I go crazy and destroy all my hard work.

 For the past 2 weeks I have truly been tested emotionally and mentally, I’m not sure if I’m handling all the situations in the best way and that’s what’s scaring me. I know that I have to trust that the growth that I’ve made and the guidance that I’ve prayed for is leading me down the correct path. I had to seriously get real with myself and remember that the things that happen to you is not your karma, how you react to the situation is. Although I feel like I want to humble a few people, I must not allow people’s insecurities or situations to have control over my life, happiness, peace, and stability. I’ve come too damn far to ever let someone else be my downfall, with this being said I must redirect this negative vibe and turn it into something positive.

 I’m picking up my paint brush again and I’m also writing more poetry, because doing small things when I’m feeling down makes me happy. At the end of the day I am my number one priority! So thank you to all of my Evolving Cosmic Butterflies for reminding me that I’ve created a space in Doses of Jay where I could vent freely without judgement or feelings worsome. I needed get this off my chest, and I feel a lot better! I love you all

 *SN: if I started a podcast would you listen? Let me know in the comments.*
