The modeling game is a tough industry to win in. When you base all your success on how

you look you got a tough pair of shoes to fill. Models of all walks of life are trying to be the next big thing hoping to get endorsement deals, clothing deals, and many other things that bring fame and money.
Most models don’t have any business sense and get caught up in the glare of modeling. Models today really need to learn how to handle their careers as a business or company. Modeling is a business and if they, the models don’t have a clear understanding that from their looks alone, they won’t be able to have a long lasting career without some form of business sense they will just be another name in the stars.
I know most of you read Rolling Outs news paper. If you have read through it like I have you have noticed a section that talks about successful celebrities “Blue Print for Millionaire Success”. The short editorial speaks about how some of the successful have arrived at their success which is cool, but the editorial doesn’t speak to the common man like myself who has to climb up the ladder of success.
Many people have their own story about how they managed to make it in their chosen profession. Truth be told their is one universal principal that every successful entrepreneurs has, and that is “fail, fail, and fail” again. I know you are saying its not that easy to become successful by failing, but that is a key element to starting on your quest to success.
I think its cool that Rolling out covers this area of successful peoples lives, but I would like to see a more detailed approach about to success for the common folks out here who are lost !
Soledad O’Brien is a Co Anchor for CNN news. CNN has aired several shows relating to the plight of Black America. Soledad seems to be the spokes model for CNN and the mediator for Black America and its plight. Many have praised and many have criticized the reporting of the news on the situation in America concerning black folks.
Is Soledad, being an African American women herself really giving us the real deal involving Black Americans in this country? I have heard many people say that she really represents the corporations point of view, and that she really doesn’t report the struggles in its entirety of the unemployment, homeless, drug addictions and a host of other problems plaguing Black folks.

The standard look for most models seems to be bony and skinny in the modeling world. I have not seen many full figured or thick built women who make it modeling. Why do major modeling companies seem to only hirer skinny and bony when there are a lot of women who don’t fit the skinny profile ? How often have you seen a commercial where the guy or gal looks unhealthy. What is it about modeling that only the skinny and bony survive ?
Or they swap out a model’s legs onto a different actress’s photo. In some cases, very thin models have been altered to look less bony. Some heavier models are ‘adjusted’ to look thinner. Models with skin problems are simply …
While I want to be thin, I have never aspired to be one of those skinny and bony models. I understand that some girls naturally have bodies like that, and they are still beautiful-but I will always be curvy-and I’m perfectly happy …
I have a bone to pick with you women about what you view success to be. I’m sure you, just like me, have been watching all your favorite reality TV shows like Love and Hip Hop, Atlanta House Wives, Basket Ball Wives, and a host of other shows that have you all acting an ass for a few dollars. Many women of all races have been given this false illusion that a successful female is pulling her clothes off on TV, shaking her ass, cussing her family and friends out and fighting other women etc.
The question I would like to pose to the female population is what is a successful women ? Do you need to do any of the above to get your fame and fortune, or can you logically work your way up the ranks to get to your goal ? In order to get what we call success by most standards people (man and women) feel like they have to show their ass to get some paper (money) to get rich. I would like to give you ladies some simple tips or advice on how to be successful if you don’t mind.
Tips and strategies for the successful women
1. Act like a lady at all times – this is very important because no one can say you showed your ass when shit hits the fan

13. Save 25% of your income from your job. You should be putting something back every week or two weeks from your paycheck etc. ( you want to create emergency fund for rainy days)

If you are black and single inside the black community you probably have heard of the site Black People Meet. The site focuses on black singles meeting one another, in hopes of finding someone who is a match after viewing their dating profile. The site seems to be making a lot of noise, because their are thousands maybe even millions of users who pay monthly fees to use the site. I have used the site and have meet some cool folks, but my problem is that there doesn’t seem to be enough serious people on the site who are actually interested in dating one another. I have heard from women that the men do all kind of lewd acts to gain the the women’s attention. A lot of women are over whelmed with the amount of inbox messages they receive from guys who are interested in dating them.
In my personal opinion, from a male perspective, it seems like their are a lot of women who are not serious about meeting someone who could be their potential mate. Most women seem to come to your profile page, and look but don’t engage in conversation. It almost seems like the women are only on the site just to get attention and nothing else. I can’t tell you how many women have came to my page and have looked several times and not so much as said hello. I know you’re wondering if I’m unattractive, and I’m not, so don’t even try it …lol. I really just feel like the men and women on the site are not seriously looking to build a quality relationship.
I think Black People Meet should set some new rules or guidelines that allow for people to really meet and engage with one another. It really is a shame that all those beautiful people are not hooking up and making a match.

Magic City, the most famous strip club in the city of Atlanta still seems to be going strong. The economy doesn’t seem to effect the strip club business. McDonald is recession proof, and so is the strip club business. I think Magic City with it’s elite clientele is doing very well in a down economy. You never really hear to many strip club owners talk about

closing the clubs as a result of not making enough revenue. Now I’m sure that there are some clubs who can’t make ends meet, but for the clubs that are at the top of the food chain things seem to look pretty sweet.
Magic City seems to always have a packed house during those peek hours. Magic City keeps the best girls in the house dancing to make that money. A formula for success I guess is what Magic City has on its book because only the best athletes, entertainers, and movie stars goes to Magic City. A club like Strokers also does well in the city but it doesn’t have the clout of a Magic City. Magic City just like McDonald is here to stay and so is the business of stripping.
