In the past few years suddenly all these musicians have come into my life. I'm a writer/teacher person. Although I value music, it's a mystery to me, this life of the musician. Kudos to you! For everything it takes to say "IT" isn't what I want for me, and I CAN do what I want.
I'm a freelance musician, instructor and ebook author. I was born and raised in New York City and have been living in Germany for the past 19 years. I am currently embarking my road to entrepreneurship as an internet marketing consultant for musicians and other small business owners.
Due to the nature of my profession I've almost always have been self-employed. I did work odd jobs on the side and I actually dropped out of the music industry for a while to work in the Information Technology field.
I realized I hated being an employee and I didn't want to stay in IT forever either. I "escaped" from the IT world and jumped back into music - but now with a lot more sense and entrepreneurial spirit.
Being a long practitioner/fan of "self-help", I have been able to make many changes, but not yet that change that "puts me over the edge". I'm still searching for that. What I realize is that a real support group is missing to keep me on track. I think that this iste may help me accomplish that.
You are offered your dream job. What job is it?:
Well, that's it. I don't WANT a job! I want a career. I'd be happiest as an entrepreneur. I've been working on that for the past 2 years now and I'm still going through the "normal" challenges of it all, but I know that that is the best chance for me in life.
My favorite wild animal is:
The "North American Mountain Lion" aka Puma.
Why (describe as much as possible):
I just love cats. All kinds! I grew up with cats. There are so calm, sovereign, sometimes aloof, but they make up for it by being so cuddly. ;-)
My favorite domestic animal is (if you choose dog be specific with breed etc):
The domestic house cat.
For the reasons stated above.
A famous Chef will prepare anything you want. What do you order:
A Seafood platter with lobster, crabs, clams, shrimps and plenty of vegetables.
I love seafood because it's healthy and tastes so good. I feel great physically after eating seafood.
Five people either dead or alive you would have at your fantasy dinner party::
The Prophets Noah, Abraham, Moses, Jesus, and Muhammad.
The Prophet Noah I'd love to talk to because he lived for so long, preached among his people for so long and had very few followers. I'd like to know how he managed to "keep the faith".
The Prophet Abraham I'd love to talk to because he was next in line after his father as being a high priest of a pagan faith and he rejected it for the belief in a single god. He was rejected by his family and was forced to migrate. What kept him so strong?
The Prophet Moses grew up in luxury and power and he rejected it all for justice. A great person to be around!
The Prophet Jesus because he was so mighty and yet was rejected by most of his own people. And he is the only human being awarded to return to the world for an even greater mission.
The Prophet Muhammad for his wisdom, his strength, his love and justice. One of the greated men in all of history!
If a pilot would fly you anywhere you want, you would go to:
My perfect slice of pizza is:
New York Style with extra cheese! ;-)
You are at a bar. You order this drink:
A non-alcoholic Strawberry Dacquery.
You are at a coffee shop. What coffee or tea do you order:
A large Latte Machiatto.
If a genie could grant you three wishes they would be (separate by commas):
The wisdom to create any amount of wealth I wish,
the wisdom to create as much love and justice as possible for my family, the ability to do it all.
You are going on a long road trip and you can only bring three CD's. Which ones do you bring
(separate by commas):
John Coltrane's "A Love Supreme", Roy Hargrove's "RH Factor", Gloria Esteban's "Alma Caribe".
If I could do anything for my neighborhood today, it would be:
Teach a kung-fu course for kids. Not for self-defense but for self-esteem.
A sunset I remember:
There have been so many, I don't know which one to pick.
Any character I could be from a movie, TV show or book would be:
Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson in "Walking Tall".
Here's a strong, built, handsome, nice guy that stands up for justice and the law.
