The Entrepreneur, The Freak

Entrepreneur
 : one who organizes, manages, and assumes the risks of a business or enterprise.
Freak
 : whimsical in quality or disposition i.e., capricious.

        You know that guy at your job who is always positive despite the b.s.. He has an astounding work ethic yet the supervisor doesn't like him. The fella is social yet his intelligence makes others feel that he's being smug. He is always open to talk about his past failures; what he has learned from them, and how he has moved forward. You hear the guy talk about his goals that sound unattainable because he chooses to reach them traveling his own path. Wooh! That was a mouthful. Well I am that guy. The freak of nature. The always venturing. The ENTREPRENEUR.


Lenwood Wilson Jr.
(Homeless shelter event)

      Born and bread in the inner-city of Baltimore, MD. I am a product of a single mother home with no positive male role models. A only child that was far from spoiled. I was ome of thes kis that was always into something, but (thankfully) never got arrested. I never followed anyone, but I was often followed. I had many associates, but I only claimed a handful of them as friends. I was a rebel. i was always willing to learn, but hardly no ome was willing to teach. I was often misunderstood. I'm not telling you this for your pity. All the adversities that I mentioned and numerous more that I didn't have created the entrepreneurial beast that lies before you. I am the eternal optimist; a purveyor of positive thinking. I am so creative. I am so ambitious. I will stay motivated. I will be flexible, adaptive and agile. I will make it big!




      My last words where not rants or boasts, they where positive affirmations. These are typical
 thoughts that I have told myself everyday for the past year. And you know what, it works. I am 
no longer at a loss of what to focus on. I also have the inspiration to fulfill my desires, my dreams and my forsaken goals. Nowadays I wake up happy like every day is anew. And you too can wake up with a zeal for life as well. You too can start working on your forgotten dreams. Look in the mirror right now and tell yourself:

"My past is not who I am now."
"I will take ownership of my life."
"I can make the impossible, possible."
"I will be a success."

        Now take a breath... Now close your eyes, and imagine that everything you just 
stated became your reality. That your dreams have come true. Now open your eyes. Grab a pen and paper. Write down your biggest dream. Write down all the possible steps you can take to attain that dream. Think out the box for this one. Don't be afraid. When you wake up tomorrow and act on what you wrote. And reaffirm your intentions every single day you arise. Push yourself. Believe in yourself. Love yourself. Show the whole world what you're made of.
  
       If I shared with you my life's story, it would reveal that my life has been the epitome of hardship. I've been knocked down but still I rise. Love has been forsaken yet still I love. I've been used and taking advantage of but still I care. Don't let naysayers change your mind. Embrace you passion, learn what you will need to make it happen, then implement it. Love is love fam. I hope you have gained something of value from this post.

New Beginings

          Hello all. This post will be simple, raw, and thought provoking. I have decided to write all my furture blog content free form. Meaning whatever is on my mind for the week is what I'm posting. With that being said this blog post is about new beginings.     First let me reintroduce myself. I am Lenwood Wilson,  Jr.. Please do note the junior, lol. My nickname name growing up was Chip or Big Chip. The nickname name was given to me at birth. It was to symbolize that I would be like my father; ie "Chip off the old block!". My father wasn't around for me after age 5. I am glad to say the negative parts of his character never rubbed of on me.    I grew up in the high crime city of Baltimore, MD U.S.A.. Primary none for sensless killings, drugs and H.I.V.. I was not a homebody and most of my friends where deep in the drug game. I made a conscious choice never to sell drug. I still hung out with my friends whether just chilling, beef or drug transactions. I can only

Learn to Love Yourself: Fight For Your Furture

    This might sound cliche but it's the bold truth, that you have to fight for what you want. And the harder you scuffle the closer you come to obtaining it. That goes from everything in life from job promotions, respect in a relationship, equality among peers and on and on. Sometimes the battle is to move forward or away from someone or something. Never stop fighting. If you do that means you have let down your guard. If you let down your guard you give away the control you have over your life. This is part two of my "Learn to Love Yourself." Series. In part one I helped you find your true worth. This time around I will prepare you to become a warrior so you can brawl for it all.         "Some people die at age 25..." - Benjamin Franklin. I first heard that quote from the world renowned Les Brown. The quote means some people give up on there true aspirations and dreams at age 25. Some people that we deem to be successful aren't exactly happy. This i

Try A Triathlon: Matthew Bailey

            Do not ever say that you can't do something if you have never tried. On July 17, 2015 a 9 year old  diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy competed and finished the Castle Howard Triathlon in North Yorkshire, England. This boy's name was Bailey Matthews. He did what most adults couldn't even imagine accomplishing. His determination and will to do is all he needed to amount such a daunting task. Of course much planning and training took place but that is all a part of completing any given goal.           Inspired by his experience last year Bailey has organized a triathlon for kids with disabilities called the "Be More Bailey Triathlon". He has warmed so many hearts and inspired so many people. Now he is using his acclaim for the betterment of others. This is so great. One of the biggest thing anyone can do is be of good service to others. I saw him do a interview after the race and he said something so cute but encouraging "I figured I'd giv
