Hello friends, fans, and family,
how are you doing today? I hope that all is well. It is time for your monthly dose of the IME Blog. First I want to say thank you so much for your support and love and you do this how?! Well, I am glad that you ask. You do it by reading my blogs silly, haha. Anyone thank you so much. Today I am going to be talking about the JB&I Show. The JB&I Show started out as a San Diego, Ca based talk show. We used the platform YouTube to make it happen and it was going good until midterms hit, haha. We had to work around our our school schedules. It was not an easy task but we made it happen. I thank God that we all was so diligent in our resolve to record and talk about the days events instead of making excuses.

Now to continue with my story about the JB&I Show. Towards the end of my school year I had so much school work on my plate I really cold not continue the JB&I Show, so, I decided to make it into a podcast. Our first several podcast was great and mirrored our videos. So, we enjoyed it a lot. However, once I reached my capstone I had to devote all of my resources to it. So, the JB&I Show got shelved. Now after a year and a half we decided to restart the JB&I Show podcast. You can find theJB&I Show here.
I am going to close with, only with you help and comments and so on can I continue. It is more fun to communicate and work with supporters, fans, and so on than no one at all. Thank you for reading and thank you for your support.

Hello friends, fans, and family,
I hope that you are enjoying the new year. Life is great and summer is just around the corner. I hope that you have your summer bodies on or at least garment coverings with a touch of provocativeness. I had to start over countless number of times so much so I just wanted to quit many times but I fortunately had positive encouragement. Don't get me wrong I am not where I want to be and I may never get there but I will never give up on trying to get there... God is good and I am determined. Thanks to awesome friends, fans, and supporters we will make it to the top, haha.
Our journey is never over it just changes in dynamics and scope and even focus but as long as we are alive our journey shall continue. Work hard, study, stay focused but also enjoy life as well. Take some time to relax and then get back to work, haha. Have a wonderful and great day. Never forget how awesome you are, okay. Let's be awesome together because I am awesome too, haha.

Hello friends, fans, and family,
I hope that all is well. As promised I am doing my monthly blog. Once a month I talk about anything entertainment and fitness. My goal to lose 40 lbs is going well. It is not easy but I am making it possible. You can do it too but I want to also let you know that it is not easy. So, don't go into it thinking that it will be done in a few moments. Depending on what "it" is it may take as long as 30 years. The concept is, you know you better than I do. You know what strategy works for you to get you going and keep you going. I will offer suggestions that I think may help you. You may try it and it may work, but you may try it and it may not work for you. So, don't give up at that point they are many different strategies out there that you can try to get yourself motivated and keep you motivated.
I am happy that I am able to share possible strategies with you to get you motivated and keep you motivated. God is good all of the time and all of the time God is good. Yes, I am a Christian, a Minister, and a child of God. I like and enjoy fitness, helping people, acting, and sharing the word of God. I enjoy all of these things. If I can motivate you to be successful and happy then I have done may job. Thank you for allowing me to come to you and share with you something that I feel will motivate you. No matter if it is fitness; acting, going back to school, going to school, starting your own business, helping someone start there business, or work for that company that you always wanted to work for. Whatever it maybe that's good, I encourage you to do it.
I share may trials and tribulations and yes sometimes I feel like I am cursed in many different ways. But God allow me to keep on keeping on. I fight not because I like fighting but because I have no other choice. I don't like failing, so I fight, I don't like being poor and broke, so I fight, I don't like falling short, so, I fight. I fight because I must fight and the way that I fight is to keep on striving forward, ever learning, ever trying to achieve my goals, ever trying to help someone who is trying to help themselves and ever learning. Yes, learning is on here twice because we, you, and I should never stop learning. No matter how long we have been doing something, no matter how long you have been on the earth never stop learning. We learn from books, pain and experiences. We may forget some items over time so we need to revisit some topics so that we can accurately teach others and our selves.
I am going to close with, at the end of the day it is your decision to give up, to quit, and/or to throwing the towel or fold. If you are doing it for the right reasons, good on you. If you are giving up because you are going through some pain, suck it up and keep going. I dare say, make and assessment of your situation. Do your research, and study and learn. So that you can make a good decision. You should do this even before starting so when things get hard and it will. You can keep going. The enthusiasm of saying something will wear off and all that will be left is your reason why. Why are you going back to school; why are you starting your own business, why are you learning a foreign language, why are you changing your career? If your reason why is strong enough when the enthusiasm wears off (and it will) you still will have a strong enough reason (why) to keep going and see it through to the end. Have a wonderful and blessed day and thank you again for your support. Thank you for reading my blog and showing love through reading my blog. You are awesome my God bless and keep you always.
Hello friends, fans and family,
I hope that your day is going well. You are awesome and never forget how awesome you are. Yes, work hard. Yes, work hard, now. So that working hard will be your norm, your new norm. So that your best will become your better. You will get better at it. If you write and work at it, you will become a better writer. If you are an actor and you work at it you will become a better actor. The sequence is the same for whatever you decide to do. Sometimes, you may not get any good comments or you may not get any comments at all. Don't allow that to discourage you. Keep moving forward, keep working at it. You can do it, don't give up. Yes, people are going to discourage you. That is what people do, why? You may ask, it's really simple. The reason they do this thing is because they can't see your dreams/vision. Your vision is for you to share with the world, or whomever. If you don't share your vision you are cheating yourself and the community. Off of some of the craziest ideas and dreams come some of the most creative items, program and such. It may not even come from that person's dream/vision.
But because that person or those people dared to express themselves, someone else was able to take there dreams and improve upon it and/or build on that. We give the right brothers credit for the airplane. I wonder how many people had an idea like that but never acted upon it. I also say we as a people improved upon that design created by the Write brothers. It is said that no one wants to be the first anymore. I wondered why is this? Is it because we can't create anything anymore? Is it because we don't want to be embarrassed? No, it is because the first creator will have to go through a lot of pain and hardship. It may even be the first series of creators will have to grow through a lot of pain and suffering, and sorrow, and hardship. So, we stay silent. We sit on our gifts that God gave to us. We bottle up ourselves because people won't understand. When we do this we cheat ourselves and this world loses out on something that God gave to you to share with the world.
I am not here to tell you that it is going to be easy. I am not here to tell you that you are going to wave a magic wand and it will be done for you. I am not here to tell you that everyone is going to understand you once you get your thing out there. No, but I am here to tell you that your dream can come true; with hard work, with dedication, with focus, with determination, with discipline, and with commitment. They are going to be days that you are going to want to give up and I say want to because you may, give up.
However, you should decide to keep going, and by deciding that you don't give up. Sometimes, you will have to remind yourself to keep going, to keep trying, to keep grinding. Enjoy your life along the way. Yes, I know that is hard to do when your bills are due and your creditors are breathing down your neck. It is hard to do when you are seeing your loved ones suffering, it is hard to do when the enthusiasm wears off and the pain and the cold start setting in. You must preserver through this because only then you will see your dream come true. Only then your tears of pain and sorrow changes to tears of joy and happiness. Happy New Year! 2019! Yay.
I am going to close with, you can do it. Keep going and don't give up. Stand-fast and keep grinding. Be steadfast and persevere through and grow through the pain. Have faith, and keep plugging away. You can do it, don't give up. Enjoy life find a reason to smile and move forward. Keep going because you can do it. #fitness #fitnessmotivation #acting #actorlife #positivethinking #prayer #pray #teamfirehawk #teamfire #trustgod #entrepreneur #entrepreneurship #8010az #weightlifting #weightlossjourney #bodybuilding
A whisper in winter, a faint call in spring, a tear in the summer and a fall... what does this life bring us?! Pain, sorrow and sadness or is there just no hope for me? Nothing matters when I am sick and I can't do anything when I am healthy. Is the prison in my mind so strong and firm that not even God can free me from the pains of this life. Most have already given up on me and I have already been cast aside and cast out of your circles and businesses. A liar and a thief is my title that I hold in the dark and even in the light as I go about my day doing my daily business. Hated and scorned for many reasons too many to count at this point. If I am able to succeed even after all of this then and only then will I be considered something more than a thief and a threat. But what if I am not strong enough to endure? I say this as I feel my physical self drain and the fatigue sets into my muscles and bones like winter and snow on the roof top of a house or building.
My spirit screams out for help but no answers come my way, I yell out for friends to help me but it is dismissed as white noise. Falling to one knee I began to realize that I am defeated for the first time in my life.
For the first time in my life I face defeat. I have lost before but I was never defeated until now. If this is it for me what will be left behind in my wake. Who will morn me? I have no estate to give so I won't even have the pretenders that frequent my dreams of sorrow and bliss. My enemies bear down on me and pressure me because they can feel their victory at hand. I have met defeat before, when I was young. It said that it would be back and now that I am old it has returned. It's showing me all of the failures of my life and how I have squandered my money over the years. It argues that I don't deserve another chance and it shows all of my failures as evidence and reason to not be given yet, another chance. It even points out that no one has come to my aid. It goes on to say that even if someone was to show up that I am too far gone and not worth saving or help. Because, I would just end up back in the same spot a few short years later. It goes on to say that it will help me to fail as it has done so many times in the past.
It concludes its argument by saying, look at him, he is too old, and he don't have what it takes to endure and over come. Your efforts will be lost and he will succumb to my call and give up the ghost. As it glares at me, it says: Even his self worth and determination is gone. There is nothing left of him but an empty husk, a shell of what was once great. Using greatness for him is an over kill because he has done nothing in his life. The tears in my eyes rolls down my face because there is so much truth in what it is saying. I am old now, I am failing, I am in so much pain, so much pain. I don't want to be a burden to my friends and family as I seek out one more chance. There is no guarantee that I won't fail, again and again. Lastly, it spoke the truth when it said that I lost my self-worth and my self-esteem and I lost my determination. What has become of me? Am I at the pentacle of my life? Is this it? Is this the best that I can do?
Should I give up on life? It is so easy to give up, I mean it's always right there, waiting on me to... Yes, I can also see the victory cheers of my enemies and the boasting of all those who stood against me. I have no family, no wife, no children, nothing to live for, so, should I just give up?! The negative energy is so strong and fluid. My shields are not holding. How did those other guys do it?! They had family, friends, children and family. What happens when you don't have those things. What happens when I am marginalized because of convinces. Should I leave this world behind and go to a cold ground symbolizing a cold world who never cared because it couldn't or wouldn't. Should I be cremated to show how the world ate up my life and burned away all of the good parts. Cremation will also show how I squandered all of my life opportunities, leaving myself in debt and broken in all ways known to man. Should I just die.
No, as much as it hurts, I shall fight. I am a warrior. I don't care if I am old, I don't care if I failed before I will not give up. No, I can't give up. I know that I don't have no one but I shall fight on. I have me. I have me and God. I have no wife, no kids but I will fight on. I have no money, no opportunities given but I will fight on. I will succeed as long as there is life in my body I will fight on. If I am destroyed in my efforts of fighting for what I believe in then I died fighting. Yes, I will have down days, yes, I will have loses but I will fight on. Do not give up on yourself. I don't care if you are old, young, smart, or challenged. You fight on. Fight for what you believe in. I dare say if it is good and positive never give up. So, go back to school and finish your diploma/degree, learn that new language, start that new business, push forward forever forward.
I am going to close with; how, when, why, where, and who are the questions that we ask our heroes and people that we look up to. I may never be good enough for you but I will always give you the best that I can an if that is not good enough. I will know that I left it all on the battle field (of life). Never give up. #nevergiveup, #8010az, #teamfire, #firenation, #acting, #staymotivated, #fitness, #teamfirehawk, #happythanksgiving, #happyholidays, #merrychristmas, #happynewyear, #godlovesyou

Hello friends, fans, and family,
how are you doing? I hope that you are well. Thank you for reading and thank you for being so awesome. I still have not fully decided whether or not to bring the JB&I Show back or not. I may only bring it back through or as a pod cast and it will be available through apple, hip-cast, and other podcast platforms. I always ask for your feed back and I am thankful to get your feed back whether it is good or bad. I will and I do enjoy hearing from you. Thank you for your support and love. You are awesome! Thank you.
Now, I got asked some questions and few of those questions are how can I keep going after a pit fall and after a major set back?! Moreover, can they do it, and how can they recover after a pit fall?! I told that person that they can do it too. I also allowed them to know that I still have along way to go. I said, doing background is not my end goal but I am going to put my all into it because I am doing it. It would not matter if I am cleaning or flipping burgers. I am going to be the best. That is my attitude. If I am climbing up a steep hill or a mountain I am going to take some time to prepare and plan but I am going to do it and accomplish it. Why, you may ask it is because this is my attitude. Yes, it is hard and yes it hurts. But if I give up, if I decide to throw in the towel without give it my all then I will always be saying what if. What if I had gone a little bit farther, what if I was able to hold on a little bit longer. That what if can and will continue through out the remainder of your life and I don't want that. I don't want that for myself or for you.
I enjoy healthy competition and I try to be the best and pass on the knowledge that I have gathered in my journey so that someone else can learn from my mistakes and my victories. I have a goal and that goal is my objective. I may need to get a job to reach it or I may need to go to school to accomplish it, and/or I may need to workout hard than I ever done in my life to accomplish it. All of these things you need to consider before you start your process and I am not saying that you are going to have an easy road. Hell no, your road is going to be hard, why, you may ask, it is simple, they are going to be pit falls and hard times. Pain is apart of the process even I hope that it was not apart of the process but it is. Yes, it is going to hurt, people so often think that it is going to be an easy road. I'll tell you what makes it easy. Okay, this is important. If you are doing something that you want to do, then it is going to be easier, than doing something that you did not and do not want to do.
Yes, they are still going to be times when you are going to want to give up even in the things that you want to do. I like fitness but I don't like working out all of the time. They are those days when I am not in BEAST MODE and/or Alpha Mode. However, I remind myself that God is good and that God loves me. He trust me enough to have life in this world so that I maybe able to reach others. If I am able to motivate you in some way and allow you to know how awesome you are then I am doing what I am suppose to do. At that point it is up to you to believe that you are awesome and that you can do that good thing that God has given to you to do.
Getting up is going to be hard because you are not going to want to get up for whatever reason. A lot of the time it is because of the pain and other time it is because of family and friends and lastly it is because of the sheer embarrassment of it all. No one is going to blame you if you don't get up. They are going to be people who love you who don't want to see you in pain and hurting so, for that reason they are not going to want you to get up from that pit fall. They are going to be people who don't like you for whatever reason and they are want you to stay down so that they can say, "I told you so," I told you that he/she is never going to be ... fill in the blank, (That thing). Now, keep in mind if you gave it your all and you not anyone else but if you don't believe that you can get back up and keep going then, then it is over. However, if you can still believe and know that you can do it to spite the pit fall. You just want may want and need a few moments to regroup and give thanks to God, then I dare say that you can still do it. All of these things are going to happen at the same time and it may even seem over whelming but I dare say again, that, you can do it. Even through all of that, you still can do it.
So, in closing I am going to say that no matter what you choose to do, if it is really something that you want to do, you can do it. We live in an age where you can really do awesome things for community and country. We can see all of the awesome things in other people but we don't see our own awesomeness. It pains me when I see this thing, when people are so awesome but they don't believe in themselves and they don't believe me and/or other people who tell them how awesome they really are. They choose to believe all of the bad and negative things that people say but none of the good. It is a choice, some people may choose to tell you that it is not a choice but it really is a choice. Choose to be great in whatever you choose to do that is good. Okay. Thank you for your time and thank you for reading.

Hello friends, fans, and family,
I have been away for a bit. Getting things together for the San Diego fit expo. I am going to be wearing our Team Fire Hawk T-Shirt. Anyone/Everyone is welcome to get their, I mean your very own Team Fire Hawk T-Shirt by Clicking Here. I thank you for all of your support and love. You are awesome! I am working on my next song in my gospel EP. It should be done this year. It is a lot of work and I hope that you all check it out and let me know if you like it or not and why, either way.
I have started my fitness process again. I had to start over due to lack of workouts, haha. Okay, okay and I ate a lot of junk food as well, hehe. Starting all over is not easy and I tend to want to go back on my healthy eating. So, to avoid this I have included a fast food day. Which is really just a fast food meal but I say day because it is a mental thing. I get to eat any junk food dish that I want and that also include deserts, haha. This programs helps me a lot because I earn this meal by having a solid fitness program.
I am also considering bringing back the JB&I Show. I have learned from my mistakes in producing and in producing the show. I upload it on Rumble and YouTube as well as Steemit. So, video interaction is very important. So, the JB&I Show needs video likes and video watch time and comments. Basically video interaction for each episode and as a whole. This is needed so that the JB&I Show can move up the ladder in these different platforms. The JB&I Show talks about movies, TV shows, video games, book reviews and more. We cover award shows and talk shows and other reviews. Let me know if you all are interested in me bring back the JB&I Show? Leave your comments, concerns, and complements. If we get good feed back I will bring the show back.
I am also I streamer on Twitch.tv/8010az. As 8010az - Team Fire Hawk - Fire Nation - is a fun community. We promote positivity, motivation, enjoyment and healthy life style. Which is Team Fire Hawk and the Fire Nation. I enjoy streaming and the whole Fire Nation - Team Fire Hawk community. I like the interactions and talking with people and supporting one another. It's awesome! Team Fire Hawk! I decided to include team fire hawk into other areas of my life and as such including them into fitness was natural. I promote healthy living. I share what I do and what my fitness goals are as well as some of my pitfalls and how and when I over came them to a certain degree.
The fit-expo is going to be in San Diego this year and I decided to check it out and tell you all about it and video some of it. I may even stream it but I am not sure if I am going to be able to do that as of right now. I know that my phone maybe able to stream for a few hours but that may take away from me recording it. So, if I can use another device to record and/or stream that will allow me to do both. If things change and I am not able to make it to the FitExpo here in San Diego for any reason I will let you all know but as of right now I am going. I will be representing Team Fire Hawk.
I am going to close with, life is hard. However, they are great moments in life which makes it worth living. We will have to decide as individuals what joy we get out of life. I encourage you to find enjoy in life. Enjoy what is good, positive and true and I dare say, follow God and you can't go wrong. But I digress, your choices are yours to make. I am just trying to you to encourage you to enjoy life and find the enjoyment in life. Community, relationships and joy should be apart of everyone;s life is my opinion. Have a wonderful and blessed day.
Hello friends, fans, and family,
thank you so much for your support and love. You are awesome! As we flow through this summer and enjoy the AC and waters of the ocean and/or the pool. Take a moment to appreciate it. I know it sounds silly but sometimes we are so busy at whatever, we don't take the time to enjoy the here and now. Unfortunately, this includes when we are supposed to be enjoying ourselves. We are working even though we are supposed to be relaxing and/or recovering. Or even worst we are worried about our work and/or our situation instead of taking the time that we already have set aside to enjoy ourselves and recover.
So, take the time and joy your day, moment, and/or year. You have already set aside the time to relax and recover so do so. They are times when you are going to have to take your work home to get it done and work over time and extra time and additional time and so on. So, when you have set the time aside to relax and recover you should do so. I have learned that relaxing and recovering should be apart of your plan anyway.
Okay, some up coming events for me is the Fit Expo in San Diego, Ca. I don't get out much because I am always working and/or working on work, haha. Even though the Fit Expo is a type of work thing I intend to still have fun. No, I do not have a booth, yet. I am thinking about getting a booth. A booth is expensive so I want to have an awesome booth complete with 8010az - Fire Nation - Team Fire Hawk stuff and more. I also want to know if y'all would like to see me post a video of me being there? I may go live while I am there but I don't know if I can do it without getting in trouble or if my phone can handle it, haha. If I do go live it is going to be on my Twitch Channel which you can find on the main IME Page Here or on Twitch.tv/8010az. The FitExpo is in San Diego OCTOBER 27-28, 2018
I am going to close with, I always want your feed back so that I know that you are getting something out of my videos, writings, and live stream. Even if it is just a getaway thing for you. A place where you can go to relax and enjoy yourself. I have gotten a lot of request for videos so I am doing more videos and posting them on YouTube and on here, the IME blog as well as on Steemit. I look at the comments and views so if there is no views and no comments and no likes then I am thinking that you are not enjoying my content. You Tube looks at this as well but I do it to see if there is any complements, questions and/or concerns. But when I get nothing it is discouraging, because I don't know if you are enjoying my content or if I am doing well in answering your questions. That is why I am always saying, please, like, follow, and subscribe because this is how I am gauging how I did in my content, through your interactions. Thank you so much for your help and encouragement. You all are awesome and welcome to the Fire Nation - Team Fire Hawk!
Hello friends, fans, and family,
there are going to be times when you are not going to want to do anything, especially if it is something that you don't enjoy doing. For and example, working out and changing your fitness level. Yes, it sounds good and a lot of people are going to be like, I am going to do it too. But the reality is, no. No, the are not and I will tell you why. The reason why is because it sounds good when saying it and they may even get a lot of support and encouraging words from friends and the public. But when they are not in the lime light no more and when they are in there bed and it is time to get up to go to the gym and workout there is no one there to say, hey, you got to do this. If they don't have that drive internally so when the mode or enthusiasm of the idea of working out wears off and there is nothing left but the pain. It is not going to be easy to say, yes, it is cold, and yes I want to sleep but it is time for me to get up and get out.
So, yes, you can do it and yes, so can all of them who say that they want to do it. However, the reality is that you must do it even when you don't want to do it, understand. Once you are able to do this consistently you will achieve your fitness goals. Also, don't worry about what the next person is or is not doing your focus should be on yourself and your goals. Don't allow your goals be put on the back burner because you are so worried about what someone else is or is not doing.
I am going to close with: You can do it. Some of my favorite motivational speakers that I like is, CT Fletcher and Gabriel Sey. They have an awesome workout and motivational skills. I also like Macc Truc and a few more fitness professionals. I give you them so that you know that is who I use when I get down if I am not using myself as motivation. Remember that you are awesome and you are awesome just for being you. Thank you for your support and love.
