Richard Murray Thoughts Version 2

When I began punditry on sport, it was confined in online locale to my material, still is. I looked and learned through various other formats or Ideas to create my own place. Past blogging, I thought to use Ebooks, my most common format. EBooks can utilize audio and are a clear way to lineate your actions. I made the Kings of London Epic Poem Series and Richard Murray's Thoughts Series reflecting that truth.  But, Ebooks were and are not the most used format to messages through the internet. Sport require common channels be used, if you have not figured out how to use an uncommon channel more imaginatively while attention getting, base on saturation in sport viewers to modern media. I thought to audio blog, The Richard Murray Fanatacism Audible, while collate from some of my favorite womens soccer connections, Richard Murray's Fanatacism, or strictly from the players, The Players Say. I gained more outreach but I found myself acting in similar to what others were doing.  I find myself now starting a new endeavor, in this AALBC blog entry, like the Audible but absent the strict format. Now, Richard Murray's Thoughts Version 2 is here. I will post in the comments in this blog, any are free to join me,and state my thoughts. But the content or style will now be free.

The Write Pitch

"Finally! Five Secrets to Pitch Perfect (LY)" Podcast - uploaded Tuesday, October 23, 2018
Listening to Barbara Corcoran's (of Shark Tank) Business Unu$ual podcast,  I noticed independent authors could modify her "5 secrets to a perfect pitch" to successfully present their books.    Corcoran's 5 secrets are as follow:   Good Hook  To the Point Short & Clear Good Backstory Look the part Cite the Next Steps An Independent author can take these secrets and craft a pitch that will lay the foundation for selling a book or manuscript to anyone; anywhere.     (Good Hook) When I hear "hook," I think music, specifically Rap.  So, a book should have a catchy title.  My first book didn't.  #TitleFAIL  So, I made my title into a meme.  "You pray that love is heaven sent, but sometimes you end up Sleeping with a D-Man."  BUT look at the bestsellers here on AALBC! Check out how many words in the title?  Most have three words; 5 is the max.   Choose wisely. (To the Point Short & Clear) Tell your audience what your book is about in 2 sentences or less.   Who is this book about? What do they want?  How will they get it? Or what's preventing them from getting it.    Nicole, heart-broken and college-bound, will go to hell and battle demons for the man she loves. Literally. (Good Backstory)  Every author knows why they're compelled to tell their story.   My daughter was going off to college - I wanted to share with her how to avoid the perils of dorm and college life.  Here's where an author can share the benefits of reading their book. Let readers know how the author hopes this book can help. (Look the part)  Hire a successful book cover designer.  We do judge a book by its cover. (Cite the Next Steps)  An entrepreneur Next Steps is all "about the Benjamins" and funding. The same is true for independent authors, but our approach is a bit different.  Our goal is to develop a relationship with our readers and also have them buy our books every time we publish.  So, independent authors,  we have to let our readers know how they can buy our book. [<-link to buy my book] Do it the Amazon way and make it as easy and conspicuous as possible.  Remind them again of the benefit from buying directly from you the author.  I read once that the most successful panhandlers tell those who put money in their cup how they will use their generous donations.  For Example: "Thank you for buying my book.  With your purchase you make it possible for me to continue to write books to positively influence and empower young women."     By the way, Corcoran says, "the same five steps were shared by every great entrepreneur that ever left shark tank with a fist full of cash.

So, "Write On!"

B.E.T. Has Perpetually Failed Black America

As Black Americans struggle against the rise of white nationalism led by an overt racist president; and as we fight against the injustice of legalized police murder and systemic mass incarceration of our young Black men and while as a unit we search hard to find a strong and positive voice of leadership for our children and to lessen the burden of the Black plight, the B.E.T. Network continues to find its pleasure in rolling exploits of the Black experience, 24/7.   B.E.T. Has Perpetually Failed Black America

Be Patient When Planting The Seeds

I am learning why I must be patient when it comes to planting the seeds.  For some seeds take a long time to grow like trees from the roots out of the ground until they touch the sky, and some are like bulbs that sprout  up after a few weeks.  Some need more water than others and some only need a few drops, but I still need to give them the time that they require to grow.  For example, as I was going about my day having my first book signing event, I ran into another soul.  And, this soul recognized me and knew that we would work together.  My point is take every opportunity because they are the bread crumbs that will lead you to your destiny.  So now I sit back and wait for my seeds to grow into what ever they are meant to be for me.  The lesson has been learned, and patience is indeed a virtuous trait to have.     Peace!

Apple and the Widow

One Trillion Dollars! Earlier this month, Apple executives announced their 42-year-old company is worth One trillion dollars.   For those unsure how to write one trillion dollars, there is a one followed by 12 zeros.     Today, some believe Apple changed the world with its products. Still, there are quite a few who get along fine without Apple.  For the rest, the company is a game-changer.       Apple went public in 1980, and for $22, anyone could buy a share.  During the company's initial public offering, a middle-aged professor, who taught at a university in Brooklyn, bought a few of the more than four million shares available. He encouraged a young widow who'd just inherited a half-million dollars to buy some too.  Her goal was to leave a financial legacy for her children, their children, and generations to come.  Not knowing much about the stock market or IPOs, she was skeptical about making a purchase.     She passed on the offer. Instead, she kept her money tied up in real estate and her family.  She thought that would be a safer deal. It wasn't.   Today, most of her family is gone.  She and the bank own her one home.     There are a lot of reasons, why she isn't wealthy today but mainly it's because "we become what we do."     There can be hundreds of articles on how Apple hit trillion dollars in valuation.  The reason is this; Apple is run by people whose goal is to make money by any means.       So, if you find you're in a place far different than you'd envisioned for yourself.    Stop doing what you've always done.    Lose the fear and make money whatever it takes to allow you to live your dreams.

Why I Published My Book

We all realize that the media really knows how to do a good job at painting Black people in a certain light. They are good at convincing us to hate on each other, and good at convincing us that nothing will ever change. But I disagree, because I was able to create a profound change in my own life by using the power of my mind.  And I know without a doubt that we all have the power to change, if that is what we truly desire.  So, I published my book to show them the truth about who we are, and that one of our greatest powers is the ability to change.  "Woke: A Poetic Journey" (available on Amazon.com) is my testimony.  So, I really hope you will read it with an open mind and heart, and let it touch your soul.

"Brave Submission" (c) 2018

SHE IS A MAN EATER BUT SHE KILLS THEM WITH KINDNESS     She Said:     I am Impressed by your Confidence And you must be the Bravest of Hearts If you dare enter my Room Some men never come this close For they fear it will be their Doom Because this is the place where a  Lion’s Heart may be consumed   And most men can’t fathom all the Hidden Galaxies That I have planted inside my Sacred Womb But I see you're bravely standing here before me Trying to Taunt me with your Dark and Very Long Spear Tell me King is it your Burning Hunger that draws you near? But please beware Beloved for your Pride has No Sanctuary here Yes in due time you will surrender All your Love without any Fear And like a Queen I will give you Flames of Passion And show you all the Mercy my Sweet Darling Dear…

A Great Career Choice for Black Folk with Criminal Records: Why not a Black supremacy emergence from within White supremacy?

Being Black, poor, and marginalized satisfy any three-strikes (you're out) rule, for success; a criminal background to boot cements a life of ever illusive opportunity. To try, is to do. To not try, is not to do! So, what are some choices felonious Black men/women who served sentences for criminal offences?    Brothers and sisters just don't want to sacrifice what's needed to obtain a formal college education; which could grant near vindication of criminal backgrounds. But some sacrifice, like or not, is required to say you, at least, tried. Even if you ultimately fail. Changing lifestyles, habits, or environments are keys towards making a personal difference, whether you have what it takes to survive is simply a matter of how much work you put into change. Entrepreneurship is only way to go if you're a Black ex-felon newly released from prison/jail.    Writing books is not only a respectable career, it's a way to make some quick cash.
