I live in one of the most expensive Neighborhoods in the south it Ranks in the top 3. I come from the Mud. The Mud to Buckhead My future started from my pass I believe then I would moved to Buckhead even when the odds where Against me. Everyone I knew and came across said it not the right choice to move to unless your rich. .
4 years ago from my small hometown we call the MUD I could not stop thinking about moving to Atlanta the future. A opening appeared disguised as a opportunity from someone I did business with. Only $128 in my pocket I got on a Airplane to Atlanta.
I'm in buckhead not so fast Tony No your in North Georgia not Atlanta off of 85, 25 minutes away with no Traffic and when dose that ever happen Never 🤣 3 months making $50 a WEEK sleeping on a blow up bed that kept sinking😥 all as a grown Man in his late Forties WTF!!! I see my future not my CIRCUMSTANCES before I left my city I knew my skills as a entrepreneur would kick in for opportunities they don't come to you you make them. .
Moving in with my business partner was the best move for me the agreement was a expediting contract that I had experience with back home in the Mud I would drive all over the city of Atlanta and the suburbs dropping off package to businesses and residential (a Key)
I Know who I Am, I know what my future look like. All I have to do was look back at my pass because history always has a way of repeating itself to you Good or Bad. You must make the changes when things are not going right for you. Your future is all up to you. My lifestyle is my lifestyle it's far from perfect a lot of pain and joy. But I hold the key not my family, not my friends, not my busines associates or people that dislike me. .
THE KEYS TO YOUR LIFESTYLE ARE IN YOU
So @satinmarche inspired this post lol. Fun fact about me: when I was a baby I won a beauty pageant that jump started my modeling/acting career. Bruh from the age of 10 months til I was about 16, I was making bank modeling & acting! Lol I was so focused...like a little adult.
But I missed school a lot & wanted to be “normal”. Also some “family” members were hella jealous because of how successful I was becoming which was scary for me so I thought hiding myself would make things easier. But that’s a wholeeee other story that maybe I will post about one day.
Anyway this past year of my life really inspired me to stop hiding myself. Haters gonna hate. May even try to ruin your life. (Yes there was even some chick that tried to ruin my life because she spread crazy ass rumors about me) Sucks that some of it it was family but whatever. Also I realized that I was made to stand out, not fit in. I mean my name is Twan Kaikpo...isn’t that a name that’s just weird af & stands out 😭.
So I say all of this to say...stop trying to fit in! Don’t do things just to please others! Do wtf you wanna do!!! Don’t be afraid to make waves. Don’t be afraid to be the first one in your fam that does something out of the ordinary! Our generation is here break tradition & question authority! Our generation is here to say fuck the system & come up with something better. Remember that!
We’ve all heard the cliché life is a marathon not a sprint, but some of us (including myself) spend way too much time stretching. I mean this in a figurative sense. Don’t devote all of your time and energy to watching every YouTube video, reading every book, or watching what everyone else is doing. Don’t get me wrong knowledge is definitely vital but trust me you will never be prepared for every situation. Experience is the best teacher, especially if you can self evaluate and make adjustments. So get out there and start putting one foot in front of the other. The quicker you get started on the path, the quicker you’ll get to the finish line! (You’re a real one if you read this whole thing!😂) 📸🙏🏾: @lancepiristudios
