Fried Thelisha


Cooking is not all about food, it can be about how you put yourself together before hitting the table or buffet line. Every day, someone is looking at how well you present yourself self in the same way they do when their food is served in a restaurant. Buffet line or served at the table, presentation matters.

Think of the buffet line as you presenting yourself, your business, or the company you work for. It’s easier for people to pass you up when there are other appealing choices.

Think of table service as grabbing the attention of someone walking in your business for the first time or going to an interview. You will be given feedback and rejected, given no feedback and never contacted/visited again, or accepted.

This may seem out of place to some, this may be offensive to some, and some may be tickled by it. Sometimes we put more time into other things than we do ourselves. Write your recipe, tweak it, and make it your best seller. I don’t believe that the first impression is the last impression, but I believe it is lasting.

To the close-minded:

  1. The first impression is the only impression.
  2. You will always be a rookie. You will never be able to work with such an individual because he or she will remind you of your “rookie” self and not recognize you for your “grown” self.
  3. You make one mistake, you’re prone to making mistakes. Every mistake you make will highlight them for discovering it and taking place in the correcting. They will gladly rub it in your face.

To the open-minded:

  1. Your first impression is only the beginning and improvements are accepted.
  2. Everyone starts somewhere. You have potential.
  3. Make a mistake, own it, find a solution, find a way to stop it from happening again.

How well do you season and fry?

Would We Survive Without Lies or Guilt?


To free yourself from a web of lies, tell the truth.

To free yourself from the pain of the truth, prevent the consequences of the lie by not lying at all.

To free yourself from guilt, accept the penalty when facing those you’ve done wrong.

If you don’t want more punishment than what life brings, don’t participate in any of the above.


No one walks a straight line and lessons are to be learned.

Some of us abuse the use of lying, cheating, and wrongdoing. Instead of unraveling, we get tangled into an almost impossible knot. The knot is almost impossible because you understand what you’ve done only after you lose your freedom.

Our paths are raveled to be unraveled. Don’t take the easy way out by making a habit of hurting others. Participate in positive pain? Yes, there is a such thing as positive pain. Some of us just don’t know it. More things to unravel….



You need skills that can’t be measured. The things that can’t be measured are needed most to be successful.

Like the thought of an undiscovered species, things that can’t be measured are the most interesting.

Probability can be measured through experiments and studies.

An interview does not measure what I can do. My resume does no justice in measuring/proving who I am or where I’ve been. Allow me to perform these unmeasureable skills before you judge my inability to do anything.

I am the good one that got away like many others. Can you measure that?

What You Do Leads Somewhere


Sometimes it may seem you’re climbing a ladder to nowhere, but you’re not. Just because you can still see the ground and not what’s above you, it doesn’t mean you’re climbing for nothing. It means you’ve done something to change your future and you have to keep climbing to make things more clear.

My Harmony


What is harmony to me?

  • Things that don’t make sense = I have a chance to make them make sense
  • Things that don’t go together = I make them as if they should have never been separated
  • Things given to me in disarray = I enjoy the challenge of making a change

My harmony is not your harmony, but it’s still harmony to me.

Roots Also Destroy


It doesn’t hurt to remember where you came from, but don’t let those still living in the past talk you into forgetting where you’re going.

Just as tree roots damage pipes and vines damage gutters, the people you expected to grow with you will damage you in the same way.
