EDITOR’S NOTE: RIDING THE WAVE
This has been the year of everything. Already, 2017 has flashed before my eyes my entire life. From hidden memories of me as a boy to intentionally suppressed ones of me as an adolescent. But what delights me most are the visions of the future.
To dream new dreams is a great big wonderful opportunity. As an Entrepreneur plans change all the time, even our greatest plans. When they do, the scrutiny we as Millennial Entrepreneurs (in specific) undergo is rather unfortunate. But, like true mavericks we must not allow the judgement of non-supporters to support our failure. I grew up in a time and household that encouraged confidence and self-reliance so for me, dealing with the judgement isn’t as hard as most. One of the most important lessons I learned as I developed by career choice is that the goal, my goal is all that matters. That If I understood and remembered that always, the work and the rewards would reflect that appropriately. The hours of planning, tuning of ideas, diplomacy and monies pumped into my work indemnifies me from caring too much about the negative noise. But in all my armor and strength I understand that this is the journey for the life I chose and that riding the wave is all part of the magic.
This week we enjoy the first post from our New York City Culture Contributor D’Andre LeGrand. In it he takes us on a nostalgic trip back to his 24th birthday and the star of the night; his blush pink #OOTN. To make matters better, #GoodEats Cellar 8 is officially out and still has my mouth watering, good thing there’s also a recipe for a mean classic Moscow mule courtesy of the KB Kitchen creators because hey; we all deserve a drink! Check out these and many more stories only on Kingston Belle.
