WHAT'S THE POINT OF GOING TO COLLEGE?
First, let me say that college was not designed to make you rich.
College was established by religious denominations to serve the needs of the church to train clergyman. One of the first colleges founded in 1636 was Harvard. The word “college” is from the Latin verb lego meaning “to collect, gather together, pick.” College is designed to educate you to work together while expanding the consciousness of your brain.
The brain is one of the largest and most complex organs in the human body. It is made up of more than 100 billion nerves. The brain of a teenager is underdeveloped. We send teenagers to college to expand their brains to become more composed, focused, and aware. This transformation does not happen overnight.
Our brain cells and the connections between them or synapses can be shaped more efficiently in the teenage and post-adolescent period than in the adult years. The “synaptic plasticity” molds the brain (like plastic) with stronger memory skills and a heightened IQ during the teen years.
Repetition in college replicates the use of synapses, which are key for impulse control, insight, judgement, and empathy. Courses involving art, philosophy, and literature causes your brain to flourish resulting in deductive reasoning.
College is not for everyone but for those interested in going, please know that higher education is worth it. Expanding the consciousness of your brain is always worth it.
(Oh, ‘cause I thought somebody that didn’t graduate college said something!)

articulatebook.samcart.com I grew up in poverty, abandoned by my father, ridiculed by my teachers, and witnessed my stepfather abuse my mother constantly. I found myself in silence at home, school, church, and in relationships. I decided to create a different path for my life by becoming the first person in my family to go to...
When people say that all your dreams can come true, I look at them with a side-eye! My only dream was to become a Rock Star!
I wanted to be Diana Ross.
I remember getting my first solo in the youth choir. I sang from the depths of my soul.
When we got home from church, Granny asked Daddy (my grandfather), “How did Lena do with her song?”
With a straight face, Daddy replied, “Lena needs to be an usher.”
Granny laughed so hard.
My dreams of being a Rockstar were shattered.
In just a few words, Daddy made it clear that singing was not my gift.

“Where did your accent come from?” he asked.
At the time, I did not realize I had an accent.
I responded, “I guess from my grandparents. I was raised over there (pointing out the window), only 8 miles away in Centreville, Illinois.”
He mocked my voice with a high pitch, “Over there?”
I responded, “Yes sir. Across the river.” (Mississippi River)
My professor and the class stared at me with a puzzled look.
I quickly realized they had not heard of Centreville.
“In the backwoods?” he scoffed.
Trying to hold back my tears, I said, “No sir. It’s a small town but it’s not in the middle of nowhere.”
He chuckled, “Interesting accent.”
The class laughed.
It was not what he said, it was what he implied. He was giving me a reminder that I did not belong. I felt ridiculed and humiliated.
When my professor pointed out my accent and how I pronounced certain words, his mockery deepened my insecurities. His mockery silenced me.
Towards the end of the semester after I delivered a presentation, he commented, “Well done and articulate.”
I cringed when he said the word “articulate.” He was not saying I was well-spoken; he was saying that I did not sound ignorant.

**New Blog Alert**
My first month of college, I was arrested and taken to jail for domestic violence against my roommate. My roommate’s father was an SIUC Alumni and an attorney and he pressed charges with hopes that I would get suspended from school. Instead, the university placed me on a 12-month disciplinary probation and relocated me into a dorm across campus.
I learned in a short amount of time how quickly your life can change. Unfortunately, I learned the hard way, in this blog I am giving 5 tips for first generation college students.
linkedin.com In high school, I rarely felt overwhelmed with schoolwork. Praise and good grades came easily to me.
Quick announcement: my new book is ready for pre-orders.
"Articulate: Our Words Shape Our World"
Articulate: adjective, ar·tic·u·late | \ är-ˈti-kyə-lət
Definition of articulate: expressing oneself readily, clearly, and effectively.
When I was in the third grade, my teacher said I belonged in Special Education because I did not pronounce my words clearly. I went on to earn my Master's Degree in Communication at 24 years old.
This is my story, my memoir, my life.
This is a journey through my childhood as I created a path for myself as a first generation college graduate. It will renew your hope. Pre-order your copy for $15 at www.correlationsllc.com

Congratulations to our Houston Certified Event Planner, Terri Higgins on a successful virtual conference! She has been working with great effort and a ton of energy to pull this off! Terri is the VP of Education for MPI Houston.
Terri connected me to Houston’s leading philanthropist and businessman Mattress Mack (James McIngvale)!
In our personal development courses, I work to help women and children with mental health. He shared the story of his daughter, Elizabeth who is severely OCD and was suicidal at 13 years old. She now has a PhD and a nonprofit dedicated to helping others with mental illness.
I’m more motivated than ever! There is power in our connections. Thank you, CEP, Terri! Sending a huge round of applause and a virtual hug to you!
I have attended several virtual event planning conferences during this pandemic and I have noticed a HUGE difference with how event planners plan their events.
In the conferences where hardly anyone looks like me, the focus is on project management.
In the conferences filled with black women, the focus is on decorating events.
The money is in the project management.
The likes and shares are in decorating.
The influence comes in being able to do both.
If you want to follow the money, plan your events like a professional project manager. Get your credentials and education.
That is all. #carryon
I can't wait for tomorrow! I will meet with some elite professionals in the events industry! I have questions...
What does Halloween event planning look like this year? Creative ideas?
How should we safely plan our Holiday events for our clients and our family?
Will Spring events get the green light? At what capacity?
I'll be sure to keep you posted. In the meantime, keep planning!

Congratulations to our Dallas Certified Event Planner, Shannon Culley for planning a virtual fundraiser for Legacy Christian Academy. She had to quickly shift the school events to virtual events including an online auction and she helped them raise over $35,000!
She used the virtual platform 32auctions. It is user friendly to build an auction and easy for those bidding on items! Consider it for your upcoming fundraising efforts.
Way to go, CEP, Shannon!

What is your current business model?
How long have you been in business?
How many clients paid to work with you in the past 12 months?
How much does a client pay for your products or service?
How much money is your business making monthly?
On a scale from 1-10 how important is it for your business to surpass $100,000 a year?
