So I’ve been on this positive thinking trip lately that doesn’t seem to be too effective, so I’ve decided I’m doing something super-wrong…
Yep! There’s something wrong with me… With the way I present myself… The way I’m BRANDED…
Because a well BRANDED name can sell anything, look at Barack Obama. Smart dude… Made his whole campaign a commercial for “change” with no real insight to what that change is and y’all voted for em. Good looks, intelligence, charm and charisma got homie in. It’s honestly to early to gauge if he’s up to par for the job of president, but the man got over well and the public is still so forgiving even as the economy sinks deeper into the trenches.
So my goal now is rather then trying to spread positive energy and thinking more, I’m going to channel some of that energy into POSITIVE BRANDING of myself so that it’s almost an undeniable factor for people not like the H BRAND!
Step #1: Less caring/sharing and more stunting/flossing.
What turns heads more then a nice car, fresh kicks and a bad chick sitting shotgun?
ME with a nice car, fresh kicks and a bad chick sitting shotgun. Fuck what you heard! Everyone from 50 Cent to Barack Obama stunted hard to get where they’re at. So I got to get it in like they did. No question that presentation is key. One thing I learned from my man Drake is that even if people don’t like, having all the finer thing in life does build character. How you let it effect you is key to where it will take you. I’ve gotten the best and had it taken away and got it right back again… Now I appreciate things more and that transcends into people. there’s not a moment that I don’t say “thank you” for something from someone and everyday I’m thankful for everything I’m blessed with now. So don’t get mad at me when I start to stunt on em like my daddy is Birdman, cause that’s just how we do! And thank you for paying attention when I do it. 🙂
Step #2 The Look
I’m undeniably cute (when I want to be)… I mean some days, I’m just a fatty or don’t feel like matching or don’t shave or get a fresh cut… Now I got to make it so 24/7 so I can solidify my Brad Pitt stature. 🙂 Of course getting back in shape is a big part of that and that’s what I’m doing now and I’m going to stick to it as long as I live. Any good brand must look as well as play the part. (Elective cosmetic surgery is always an option as well!). But seriously looking good is a state of mind, confidence in your appearance is what is key. Even when I wasn’t as fit as I’m becoming, I was confident and that translated into the way people looked at me. When I lost that confidence my stock fell… Now I’m the only stock on the market that’s rising as the rest fall… I’ma keep it going and help the H BRAND become something everyone wants to invest in one day. 🙂 because it’s going to be so daam HOT! 🙂
Step #3 Impact people positively even when I mess up or I’m not exactly what they need.
Apparently all good brands leave a vague presents that fools the consumer into thinking that it’s the shit, even when it doesn’t actually benefit you in any good way at all . Like seriously do we really need Doritos or Paris Hilton? Both strong brand names and don’t necessarily make us feel any better day to day, right? But they give us a sense of good feeling when we consume them. That’s what I want to become. Less substance, more flavor and more trans-fatty acids for that ass! And look at Paris Hilton, 3 sextape, racist and dumb as a tree stump, but she consistently is a media magnet and all that negative shit that gets whipped on her is all forgotten when she says a witty, “THAT’S HOOTTT!” I ❤ Paris Hilton.
Step #4 Make Ace my publicist/right-hand.
One of the few people I know that embodies my “get it done by any means necessary philosophy.” She’s so real with it too and she knows how to wiggler her way out of situations using her charm rather then her attitude. I think she knows what it takes to makes a good BRAND stand out! Oh and we both crack each other up, so if I got a Kool Aid smile on my grill it’s because she just cracked a funny! More over Ace is a team player and knows how to get shit done… Shit anyone who walks 150 NYC blocks home everyday in the summer time got dedication! She’s got style, presents and personality. This nigga is the shit and she’s cute too boot! If anyone can make my BRAND stand out it’s this one… Watch! 🙂

Step #5 Money/Greenback/Scrilla!
Need greenbacks to get love nowadays. Whether you’re getting married or running for political office, money is critical to the cause. Personally I wouldn’t “buy” people’s love for the H BRAND with big billboards and commercials telling them to “obey,” “follow my lead” or “feel the power of the H.” NO! I’d just make people’s lives better one dollar at a time… Even when trying to be modest in my branding efforts money is always going to be needed to spread the love! So it must be mentioned because it will be used somewhere down the line. SLOGAN===> “I’ll make your hopes and dreams come true when you swing your love to Hugh…” 🙂
Step #6 My own T-shirt….
When you’re a popular T-shirt, you’re as well BRANDED as a Texas steer after a rancher burns his log into that heffers ass! Baaaawwwws~!
Step #7 Keeping it real.
I’ve prided myself on how real I am with people. Sometimes it works sometimes it doesn’t, but sincerity is something we as humans should start to look more for in our leaders because once one promise is broken trust starts to fade. I need to be as slick as Barack, as cool as Jay-Z and as honest as 50 Cent. No need to show people that I just talk a good game, but I don’t front as well. When you aspire for greatness keeping people’s trust is key. When branding yourself I think back to Jay-Z’s promo for Vol. 3 “Jay-Z The Name You Can Trust” Stolen from old political campaigns, but very true. H… The Name You Can Trust!
Step #8 The right woman by your side…
Michelle Obama was key in Barack’s win as president. She came off as the dedicated, beautiful, strong, supportive woman that every woman should be. She is media friendly and can probably be president one day herself. It’s no secret there’s always a good woman behind NEXT to every great man. What I see in a great woman? One that isn’t afraid to move like me. One that’s not afraid of what the future has in store. One that shares common interest and can finish my thoughts before I even speak. One that got fire and passion like me. One that doesn’t front. One that will ask the right question to get me to think before I react. One that is just good to me… I don’t think I found my symbolic “Michelle Obama” yet. She’s out there for sure and I’m willing to wait for her, but till then I got to move and build my BRAND dolo…
Step #9 Determination! Keep doing me! Give & Take!
There’s no stopping someone who’s determined. The key to determination is to believe you can do anything, stay POSITIVE and to not hate people, but appreciate everyone. Keep Doing me…. Never look back and definitely live with regrets, make those regrets a fuel for you so you don’t experience them again. When you don’t regret a bad experience in your life it’s a catalyst for you to go right back into that same bad shit. Live for the now because tomorrow isn’t promised to anyone. Give and take is a key in BRANDING yourself, the BRAND takes from the user experience you’re giving people and my goal is to make it a HELL OF AN EXPERIENCE FOR ALL OF YOU!
Step back look in the mirror and say, “are you ready for this?”
If the answer is a quick and determined YES! Then you’re ready to build a BRAND NAME of yourself. If you’re reading this right now and fuck with it, I’m doing something right in working the H BRAND. Now go and do you! I’m feeling like I’m like 24hour from greatness… I’m that close! 😉
