They Don’t See The Grind They See The Shine — The GeoGee Experience Magazine — Medium

The title of this post is a quote I lifted from a conversation Damon “Dame” Dash was having on the TV show Music Moguls.

Now considering Dash’s failures one might ascertain Dash is not the one to be quoting in a motivational context.

In his heyday, Dash was worth a reported $50 million, only to descend so deeply into debt (thanks to back taxes, back rent and other outstanding bills) that it ate away at his multi-million fortune.

5 Lessons We Can Takeaway From The 2015-16 Carolina Panthers


The NFL’s Carolina Panthers steamrolled themselves into the 2015 NFL season kicking the asses of  all comers until week 16 when they were handed their asses by the Atlanta Falcons.

That loss didn’t slow the roll of the Panthers. They dusted themselves off and went into week 17 with more confidence than they had going into week 16 and won. And they kept on winning week in and week out landing in Superbowl 50 to play the Denver Broncos.

The Panthers are fun-loving, brash and in your face, all at the same time, and that formula has taken them all the way to the Super Bowl.
