You know, I do a shitload of reading and studying and praying, and I’ve come to a few conclusions I want to share. People look at politicians and celebrities on the TV and the newspapers, glossy magazines – what do they see? “I’m just like them.” That’s what they say. “I’m special. I’m different.

Yeah, I know. This is a true WTF moment. I’m as shocked as you are. Never would I have expected to sit here and tell you that I sold my baby; that I made what people like to call an “exit”. On April 4th 2014, Blue Track Media was
