The sun is shining, the flowers are blooming & Trump is in office; times in America just can't get any better. That was complete sarcasm. We are destroying mother nature a lot more as the days pass, equal rights & the conversation of systematic oppression are still just as relevant as they were in the 60's and somehow, Donald Trump continues to have the greenlight to make whatever plays he wants, yet still, there is a light through the fog. As I've mentioned before, we are living in unique times when it comes to personal branding and social currency.
Look at people like Chance the Rapper & Techn9ne, social currency and personal branding have fueled their careers to this point. People want to see the truth, we want to see people being people. Transparency has made it so that the politically correct, scripted responses are no longer accepted (i.e Hillary Clinton's whole campaign). Moral of the story, build yourself and don't rely on these companies and corporations to support you.
