G Style Magazine: Reflecting on 2013, As I Look At 2014…

ReppingVerse 2013 is wrapping up and as I look at 2014 down the block, one must reflect on the year. Specifically with G Style Magazine. Being Editor in Chief is definitely a fun and rewarding task. I’ve recruited, guided, was impressed by, critiqued, and ultimately blessed with a great group of people. Watched them do some amazing things and got to watch their talents grow.

It is a fun task, but isn’t always a easy one. I’ve been an mouthpiece, peace maker, voice of reason, babysitter, nagger lol, and Zen/calmer all at some point. There has been stressful days, and shoot days I’ve been like argh is it worth it. But I’ve learned over the years, you need to be all those things. Sometimes fun, laid back, other times stern and strict, other times still soft/flexible/compassionate/understanding/compromising. Juggling all of those is definitely a balancing act. I’ve slipped and fell off the wire handing by only a finger, other times I could do flips off that wire and balance back perfectly. It’s trail and error, constantly learning, but always pushing forward.

As I look back at 2013, sure there are some things to improve on, but I wouldn’t change a thing. And is it worth it, I still think so and I’ll continue to walk toward that end of block into 2014 and beyond.

To the team: Samuel Huang, Tej Jordan, Jason Million, Ana Lie, Malcolm A. Batten, Jonathan Baez, Mike Bitter: You guys are rock stars, G Style breeds them like Spartans only breed warriors! You guys continually impress me and you are part of my family! I’m proud to stand next to you guys and confident to be in the background as you play front and center with this brand. The brighter you guys shine, the more I’m comfortable being in the cut! You have done an excellent job and though I’m sometimes quieter than I need to be, I notice and watch everything. All praise to you guys is warranted (and I’ll be more vocal about it into 2014 lol). G Style is greater with you guys apart of it!

To my partner/co-owner/brother/friend Chuck Holliday: Man 8 years and running! Though I don’t call on you often with this G Style thing, you are always there and available when I need to talk about something related to it or a situation where I need to bounce an big idea or issue facing it. Always there with great advice, different outlook or just a confirmation that what I’m thinking may or may not be correct. You flex that 0.0001529 percent when needed lol and most notably now with the new design look of the site. Appreciate the advice, support, and help as we continue to grow this thing!

And to the misses Sheniqua Nina Fleming:
Thanks for the support and patience. You put up with the after work shows, press events, meetings, trips (that you don’t always get to go to), and the people who probably harass you thinking you know about this Tech stuff because I do lolol. But you handle i with patience, understanding, and calm….as long as I bring you back something 😛 Appreciate the support as I grow this entity.

Here’s to all that 2013 was! And now to 2014!
