NO WAY NO HOW! (Read time 0:27)
No Way No How, will I allow the pettiness of a fallen industry to influence my creative career or rob me of my impossible dreams.
No Way No How, will I allow the constraints of money (either the struggle of making it, or the fear of losing it) to steal away my creative energy and distract me from my mission.
No Way No How, will I allow an antique group of “technophobic” marketers, old-time promoters and egoic managers to direct my future and rep my brand.
No Way No How, will I allow gossip, rumors and hearsay to guide my choices and influence my decisions.
No Way No How, will I allow the Devil of Doubt or the Demon of Procrastination to stall or stop my worthwhile projects.
I'm a dedicated artist and a committed entrepreneur and nothing will stop me from expressing and manifesting my ideas, inventions, innovations and art!
“The world's mine oyster, which I with sword will open.”

I love this post and it came just in time for me to address the slump I've been in lately. Thanks so much for sharing words I can immediately use re-frame my mental conversations. The energy attached to the words written has already lifted my spirits and I shall spread my wings and soar. I will no longer allow myself to be disturbed by external conditions as I put my thoughts in order. Namaste.

I still believe and believing is a powerful positive force against all the negative doubting air waves surrounding our planet.. I believe in bigger hands than mine, creating art for others...a love letter.. Have a day sunny side up! Rachel

No-way no-how will i forget that as long as i craft my cries for help in a what is in it for them - i'll give 1 dollars worth of value for 15 cents worth of help to be exploited because i'm lucky to have you helping me opportunity - success is guaranteed. peace.

No Way, No How Will I Stop my Music & Acting Career. Thanks to you, I had some great reviews in Music Connection. I am an award winning performer, singer, songwriter, recording artist; with songs in indie & major films. Though I spent the last 12 years in & out of hospitals, instead of on the stage, I allowed nothing to stop me from sharing my music & the talents God gave me with others. I share my music because I want & have to love, heal & encourage others, to be all they were meant to be. I believed I would have victory over my health trials and get well; 10 surgeries in 12 years because I had small pancreatic ducts, pancreatitis & eventual pancreas removal, islet cell transplant & 5 revisions. My last & final surgery was 11/30/11. I'm resting, recouperating now & I'll be strong enough to perform, tour & go to the top. Fall of 2011, I finished a grammy, multi-platinum destined album in Nashville, TN with David Z at Ocean Way, called "Love Is The Cure"C2012, Susan Toney, Strange Child Records, Screaming Child Music(BMI). It's available now along with "Strange Child"C2010, on CD Baby & Partners Worldwide (iTunes, AmazonMP3,etc.). Thanks for all the care, energy & lifetime committment you have made to artists and musicians. I wish you love & all the best, Susan http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/susantoney2; http://www.susantoney.com.

| NO WAY! |
No way will I allow one more old school manager or PR person to tell me that they can handle promoting my music on the Internet. I'm so pissed at my reps these days and this blog has got me fired up to fire them! Thanks MD! Are you a manager?

| With sword..... |
This makes me feel like Zorro, with sword in hand, (swish, swish!-sword sounds)I alone fighting a whole swarm of enemies, devils and demons. This is a battle to the death...and not my death....I will defend my identity, who I am, the world is mine!!!! I am an artist, using the sword (my tools, tech and otherwise) to carve my identity in the fallen bodies of my enemies (not people, the ones mentioned above).
