Always interesting what folk do and don't pay attention to. If there's one thing I'm consistent with it's my communication. Same phone # for years, same sites, same blog,etc,etc.....If what I do matters then you dont need me to tell you everything because you can see it for yourself. I've been pushing The Omega Nexus for years now and the past 2 years has seen the growth of the Nomadness Travel Tribe. Now I get that everyone isn't the same but I make it my business to check on what people that are important or interesting to me are doing. Awards, conventions, hell I just came off a damn national tour! If you arent aware of anything I'm doing then you simply don't care. I dont want to hear "I didnt know." At this point I dont buy

...it's simply a about how you elect to use it. Slowly but steadily I'm getting more comfortable with mine.
I can't remember when a day has gone by that business thoughts haven't filled my mind. It's the core of what I'm focused on and where I what to be. Be it within the Nomadness Tribe, The Omega Nexus or other side ventures I've been blessed to be introduced to a number of ways to make business work. I'm proud to be a part of the next era of transitional young business folk. We're a group breaking free from the belief that the path to success and is only attainable via the road though college degrees and 9-5 jobs. Now while many have come to detest this ideology I make sure not to get to a point of speaking down on those that do pursue this way and who generally like it. As the number of entrepreneurs in my circle increases I often remind folks that not everyone is you. Not everyone is supposed to create and run their own business.
For as many people as I know doing these new exciting things professionally, I know just as many that are perfectly happy with a 9-5 in a field they like and rising their family. We need to be sure not to speak in a condescending manner or indirectly shame those that aren't doing what we do. They are often our biggest supporters. Many speak on society and use terms like "sheep" when in truth many of us come from "sheep" ourselves. They are the parents that came to the U.S and built the life that produced this generation of trend setters, often with multiple 9-5/mainstream jobs. That's the balance we need. Creators of all kinds and consumers to support them.
I feel that your drive and goals should define you. Yet understand that those goals and how you go about getting them only apply to you. There are many ways to get it. There is no 1 definition of business these days and more importantly there are many, many roads to happiness.

This weekend was a big moment for the Omega Nexus. We were in town for the 2013 East Coast Black Age Comic Convention and the night before we were in attendance at the 2013 Glyph Awards to accept the Fan Favorite Award. This is our first award win and as we all said, it will not be our last.
I'm super thankful you to the people to came through to support especially those that took time out of their schedules to travel to Philadelphia just for us. Nothing moves me more then the dedication of time. Everyone has things to do, everyone has their own concerns. When in the midst of your own world you stop think about and remember what someone else is working hard for and you elect to genuinely support that, there's nothing great in my eyes. So again, thanks for the tweets, texts, etc in support of the Omega Nexus this weekend.
There's a lot coming this year so stay tuned..........
