Necole Kane | @HelloNecole
Necole is someone that I have had the opportunity to work with over the years and is one of the reasons I’ve even continued to keep blogging and writing when I thought I was incapable. I’ve always admired her for her honesty and her willingness to tell it how it is while other people act like there sh*t don’t stink. In this video, she talks about how she left her successful celebrity gossip blog of 8 years, NecoleBitchie.com, to press the reset button on a challenging journey growing xoNecole.com, losing direction and sometimes coins in the process.

[Tweet “Dream it. Work Hard. Grind to you own it.”]
Beyonce, the Diva, the female version of a hustler has been grinding long before herself and the rest of Destiny’s Children were warning us about trifling good for nothing type of brothers. The Queen has made a great name for herself in a industry that is short lived. We watched her grow from the star in one of history’s greatest girl groups to being a Music slayer, loving mother and beautiful wife. In short, this video shows when in doubt WWBD (what would Beyonce do).
