Just Reaching Out

Well last week has probably been my most exciting week since when Gary Webb broke my story in 1996 and my name had become one of the most popular names in the country for a couple of weeks.  Finally I had made stardom.  Even though it was not the way I had hoped, it was stardom nevertheless. See, at that time I was looking at a life-sentence and I was very sure I would get it.  But last week was a different story.

One of my greatest fears has been getting out of prison and not knowing what I was going to do.  Oh yeah, I've had many nightmares where I just got out of prison and found myself in the middle of a drug deal, only to be surrounded by DEA and FBI with guns pointed at me.  My nightmares are not of the boogie man, but of drug deals gone bad.  I have been studying really hard, but you often wonder if the stuff that you study really works.  I know that my desire to succeed comes from the inside, it doesn't matter what the outside world thinks.  If I feel good about it, I go with it.  

Anyway, I made a lot of progress last week.  I just found out that all the money has been put in place for my upcoming movie. My record label is moving closer to becoming a reality.  I have a piece of property that I am building an apartment building on that I will be telling you about later in the week.  I am really feeling like the luckiest man in the world right now... and I know it may sound funny to you to hear a guy in prison feeling so lucky!  I will do my best to explain it to you as the weeks go on.  The first tip is that it all starts with a burning desire.  

If you get a chance, check out my website at freewayenterprise.com.  We have been doing a lot of work on it, watch for more.  Talk to you soon.
