One of the reasons that I decided to do THE b.r.burns SHOW, is to introduce the fan base that I have been so Blessed to accumulate over the years, to some VERY TALENTED PEOPLE! However, more important than the exposure, hopefully the support that all Up and Coming Artist / Entrepreneurs / Etc., need to survive, will be the end result.
As a "Starving Artist", I can tell you that I have heard "congratulations" more times than I can count. Don't get me wrong, I know as Artist /… Continue

There are 2 ways to get more done.
1) Work more yourself
2) Leverage your network
Successful people have large networks.
Imagine the power of thousands of friends..
each ready to do a favor when needed.
In the past, Networking was a lot of work,
going to events, following up, building up a
relationship of trust.
You want to be persistant but not "pushy"
and you have to keep track of it all.
YOU WANT… Continue

Let’s face it, just a few months ago, if you would have asked any number of African Americans if they really believed that they just might actually live to see a Black American President, you could be certain that almost if not all to a one they would have responded with a resounding ---“No!” Today, most of the country still seems to remain somewhat mystified by this latest example of the nation’s lingering racial divide. Nevertheless, whether… Continue

Roses are the Color of Brown Sugar
Sculpted in time by the hand of God
Swaddled and presented to man in mature form
Eyes closed not yet exposed to light
Until finished, every curve of your frame made perfect.
The earth needs you
To help accent the colors of the rainbow
Give proportion to the mountains
Be the central thought to birds that sing
You have caused the wind to blow
Look how the autumn leaves dance at your… Continue

They are also astonishingly diverse, as to be expected from a continent in which more than 700 languages are spoken.
Among students of African folklore and mythology, the epic tale of Mwindo, told by the Nyanga (sometimes called Banyanga) people of the Democratic Republic of Congo,… Continue
