I had a busy weekend but it was good. Spring has turned into summer here in the DC area and our temps hit 90+. I attended some events, I finally finished packing away my winter clothes and hung up all of my summer clothes; yay for open toed shoes. I also received a package in the mail that set my soul on fire. I need to plan a celebration, we’ll discuss more.
I cut all of my hair off on Wednesday and took it from jet black to a cinnamon spice; next step, blonde. There is a Coco Chanel quote that says when a woman cuts her hair she is going to change her life. Although I’m a serial cutter this was timely. I am changing my life, life is changing and it will be moving in the direction I want it to go in.
I’ve been on a journey of clarity as of late. I’m not as obsessed with finding my purpose like I once was. Only because I’m slowly picking up on things and I think I have a bit of understanding now. Shout out to Nicole Walters for gifting me her Fierce Clarity program. It was just what I needed. If you feel baffled about yourself, your business and who and what, this class will help you as well.
They say your purpose is that one thing that people constantly say you do well better than others. Well in the last six months there is one thing I keep hearing. The great thing is it is something I love. Many of my regular Cuties (you) have also commented saying the same thing. I love people, and socializing is my thang; I’m a people person. I also share, I love to share with folks and I’ve always been an open book.
Hi, my name is Mimi and I’m a Lifestyle Media Correspondent; that means I share real life events, situations and day to day experiences in a variety of media formats. SQUEAL! This weekend I added MC/Host to my resume. My new friends at the University of Maryland reached out to me to host two food-related segments at their Maryland Day event. My love for #FatSnacks is no secret and coupled with my love for people I was all in. It was awesome; I will give you a full recap on Wednesday. They said I was a natural, I was a hit, and I did a great job. They said they loved it and I said ME TOO!
With that said, I’ve already started being more intentional about growing in the area that I want to be in. The good news landed in my inbox last week when I received Media Credentials for Essence Festival in New Orleans. *Second Line* Geeked!!! The greatest news of the week came in the form or a letter.
This has been a year in the making and I am proud to announce *drum roll* I officially have a registered trademark with the United States Patent and Trademark Office. If you’re looking to register a trademark, you may want to check out a business/ law firm willing to help. *body roll* That ™ is now a ®. I am the proud owner of MimiCuteLips. No, I didn’t do it on my own. Yes, I used an attorney. Shout out to Tyra HughleySmithLaw.com No, it isn’t cheap. Yes, it is cheaper if you do it yourself. Just because you can pull a tooth out doesn’t make you a dentist. There is a reason a trademark lawyer nj situated (for example), have requirements and standards. I’m just saying…
With all of my newfound clarity and validation of thine self and thine business, I am looking forward to banging out the next quarter in grand fashion.
