Quick message to Bruce Levenson

Bruce,

You’re not completely off course but, dude you’re in Atlanta one of the blackest cities in the U.S. Up your targeted marketing game. Plenty of financially fit blacks in ATL who can buy season tickets. Regarding music, there are white hip hop artist now over 40. Hire another DJ, but do your research first. If smart, you would partner with one of Atlanta’s record labels. Do you know how many successful labels there are all run out of Atlanta? Do you know how meaningful it would be to play the music of upcoming artists from the very neighborhoods surrounding the arena? Research. Of course what you see at other arenas is going to be different. They’re working within their local communities, not working against them.

You’ve resigned now though, so someone else will have to do what you couldn’t do & that’s ok. Life goes on.

Just remember this - Egypt was more about the lessons than the exit. What have you learned, Bruce?

One love.

Kimberly

It All Starts With Love.

‎What if God gave up on you because He found someone else who didn’t sin as much and required less of His time? Luckily for us, His grace makes no such distinction, and His mercy wouldn’t let Him if it did. God’s love is so big that it covers man and beast alike & we all are to be examples of His love. When a mother feeds her newborn, when a child feeds his fish…it’s all a direct reflection of…

‎The takers in your life make you appreciate the small number of givers. They also demonstrate to you how NOT to be. You don’t have to ditch them all the time, but as often as possible, keep your distance.

A Step Back.

Be the light in a world that’s dark, but never forsake your own inner peace cause once you’ve become empty in that place, there’s nothing more that you can give.
