Enchanted Events of Atlanta Event Makes

I just got exciting news that the Enchanted Events of Atlanta Event was featured on in the Star Gazing section! This is the second time this year that I have been on the site. Yay! Here's the picture of me and Alisha Nesbitt:

Look Another Female DJ!

The Enchanted Events of Atlanta event went well. All of my Atlanta peeps came out to support me and my client's new event planning company. As usual people were surprised that I was "good." At the beginning the party, the bartender said, "Look another female dj!" with a sigh. By the end of the night, I had his respect and requests too lol.

I finally placed a DJ Nickiee quick mix on the site for those who haven't heard me. Send me an @ reply on Twitter, and let me know what you think. I admit I would have more bookings if I provided a mix, but I haven't had the time and patience to sit down and record one.

I finally got the clippings of my article in Sister 2 Sister Magazine. Yay! So, I emailed the article to 10k people, and guess what? A publisher called me about writing a book. I told her that I would have it completed by the end of the summer! When one door closes, another one always opens.

Back from Atlanta

I had a great weekend. I flew to Atlanta for Curly Girls Rock for a natural hair mixer that GoodGirlPR and DJ Nickiee sponsored it was so packed (Lil Kim was on my flight by the way). I put business cards in each and every gift bag, and I already received two business leads.

I got a change to spend time with my friend/Soror, LaKisha, from law school. We went to a restaurant called Truva and then to Cafe Circa. I had so much fun.

The next day, we had brunch at Park's Edge. I ran into artist, Eric Roberson. He said that I looked familiar. Is that from Twitter lol? Then, we made a quick run to Atlantic Station where I had a meeting with my client, Enchanted Events of Atlanta, at Strip. Of course, I was tweeting and a fellow publicist, Keisha of Prominence PR, joined us. Keisha is going to cover the red carpet while I'm on my female dj tip. Trina's publicist, Alesha, wanted to meet with me but I didn't have enough time. I am looking to build more relationships around the May 14th event.

After which, I was off the the airport and back to New York. Sometimes, quick get-a-ways are necessary. I met some really cool people.

This week is jammed pack. I have several proposals out and they all look promising. I'm going to work my but off until Friday. I actually have to go to Raleigh, NC my clients, Tea and Honey Blends launch event. Ironically, I have all the press contacts in that area from the Women's Power Summit. My goal is to have solid press and venue contacts in all major markets. It's going well.....

I hope everyone has a productive week!

Music Evolution

I am have been up all night listening to music. Sometimes, I forget about the reason why I started to dj. I love music, and want to share my ear with others. DJing is about being organized. By listening to songs, you understand the vibe of each song. Just because two songs are the same BPM doesn't mean that they can be mixed or blended. They have to share the same feel. If you don't LOVE music, you will not take the time to figure this out...

Good night! Let's see if I go workout in the a.m. I have a jam packed day! Meetings and cocktails with Lucky Magazine. I want to be a Lucky Girl...

Happy Easter

I'll be in New York for this Easter holiday. I'm going to cook, too. I am actually a really good cook if you can believe it. My sweetie said that he didn't think I could cook by looking at me. What is that supposed to mean lol? I really need to go home and visit my family. My grandparents are getting older and are not the same. I am so glad that I went to law school in Colorado to be closer to them. I admit time just flashes by in the Big City, but I do not forget the people that helped me. My grandmother and cousin, Terry, have been the most supportive of me when I decided to start my business, and I am still paying them back.

This week was very eventful. GoodGirlPR is growing like wild fire by using my DJ Nickiee platform to support it. I literally have five PR pitches scheduled next week; two of which are with a cosmetic dentist and a plastic surgeon-sounds fun. I hired a sales person as well, and he's good!. I also had a great lunch meeting with And, last night, I fired yet another intern, but I hired three. As much as I want to mentor people, I don't have time for people's excuses and bullshit. Three strikes and you're out!

The DJing world is cool. I still have to get the DJ Nickiee brand together. I would say on average, I DJ twice a month. In fact, I am djing a red carpet event for a company called the Enchanted Events of Atlanta in May (the invite is above). Honestly, I am inviting every Atlanta based publicist and event planner in the Atlanta metro area. It's all about working smarter not harder. I get it now.

Happy Easter.

Sister 2 Sister Magazine Here I Come

I need to start blogging more (I always say this lol). I think I may have more time now. I have two assistants, and an overall staff of 23 people and counting so that means more time for me (one would think). I finally set up my turntables in my new pad, and they don't have dust on them. I am still on my mission to succeed as a female dj (deejay). Program directors are definitely paying attention and sending me sample airchecks. Last week, I had the opportunity to DJ at Deejays for Japan. See the picture of me and DJ Chris Washington above. The lineup was cool - D-Nice, M.O.S., just to name a few.

Sister 2 Sister is also doing a column on me in the magazine. Crossing my fingers on Lucky Magazine! Also my right hand, Natasha Boyd, is being featured in Redbook. Press begets press; therefore I am predicting me and my team will be in many more magazines in 2011/2012. I do own a PR firm (lol). I come from a school of thought that believes that if you want something, you have to do it yourself.

Last week, I had an awesome interview as well, and I hope that I inspire people to start their own business. Click HERE to tune in.

You'll be hearing again from me very soon!
