Do We Have Your Vote?

I normally wouldn’t reach out on the blog like this, but…

Would you guys do me a giant favor and help me win a trip to Tortuga Music Festival (in case I don’t make it to the ACM’s this year!) This trip would help with the depression that would result in not being in Vegas during The Week Vegas Goes Country. Perhaps a chance to heal a broken heart!

All that you have to do is click and vote a 10 on our photo! I believe it asks for your email address as well. I would appreciate it so much! Voting ends 2/10/16! I would truly appreciate it! 🙂

Empowering Women

miranda-lambert-tweet-286x400

When it comes to empowering females in the country music world, Miranda Lambert is one name that comes to mind. As a part of this blog, my goal is to inspire not only women, but anyone who wants to rise higher in their personal lives and/or careers. This might be “old news” to some of you, but right now I’m on an “empowerment kick” and learning about what Miranda is doing for one lucky girl attending Belmont is definitely empowering and inspiring!

Established in 2015, the Miranda Lambert Women Creators Fund will provide over $40,000 to a female attending Belmont University in Nashville who is majoring in songwriting, entertainment industry studies or music business. The first scholarship will affect the 2016-17 school year. (Which, in that case, should I consider going back to school?!?) Several years ago I looked into Belmont, before realizing I didn’t want to have to go through all of those prerequisite and core classes again. Just take me straight to the music business courses, please! Nor do I have that kind of money to invest into a second college education. Thankfully, I’ve learned along this journey that you don’t need a Belmont degree to land a career in Nashville’s music industry. I would rather devote my hard work towards networking and gaining real-life experience instead of spending time in a classroom.

A Note From the Universe

b5a8539be19fabe6361992c755d95e4f

The Universe blessed me with this much needed message today:

As surely as mountains are to be climbed and oceans sailed, your dreams are meant to come true. This is why you’re here, Jessica, to live the life of your dreams. Not to be tested, challenged, and tried, but to conquer, champion, and rule. Keep going, forge ahead, press on, and the day must dawn when your thirsts shall be quenched, and you, exalted.

Never settle for less, don’t ever think it’s too late, and never, ever, ever compromise a dream.

Exalting you early,
The Universe

I have had a few hiccups the past few days (it must be the new moon!), so this message came at just the perfect time. Each day I realize more and more that I am on the right path to my dreams. I cannot wait to see where 2015 leads me! The Universe could not be shouting more clearly at me to embrace my passions and follow my heart! I am so beyond blessed with this opportunity of being unemployed to allow me the time needed to focus on my goals. I could not be more grateful!
