I remember wanting to plan a show dedicated to women for Woman’s History Month in March 2012. I recall booking four acts, making flyers, creating the event on Facebook and promoting the show online and offline.   The event was to be held at a local library in Staten Island. Do you know, not ONE person showed up to my event. Not only that, but one out of four acts showed up for the event. The other three pulled out the day of the event for various reasons. I wanted to NEVER do a show again. 

I say this to say, sometimes we must experience failure in order to succeed later. You have to be willing to take a loss and/or a few losses in life to realize the importance of winning. Currently, I am still blessed to work with the local libraries to put on events in support of my community and receive support from the good folks of Staten Island who always tend to show up. It took time, but I’m glad I failed… because NOW I only plan to succeed.
