"If you share in yo success and not yo struggle you's a fuckin fool"
Here's me on stage a week ago failing miserably in front of a couple hundred citizens and a few celebrities at the Hollywood Improv. Failure is not fun but is a very necessary part of the work and also the lens through which we view all success. As unpleasant as this was to experience, there have been times I've performed ABSOLUTELY spectacular without being able to grab such a dope photo!

Nobody can say they never failed, everyone has faced failure at some point in their life. We can learn from our failures and become wiser after all life is all about giving a try and making errors. Life is not about giving up.
Elon Musk is one of the founders of PayPal. Currently, he is the CEO and founder of @teslamotors with a mission to accelerate the world's transition to sustainable energy. He is also the founder of SpaceX with a mission to colonize Mars. He has faced failure a lot but he never gave up.
I deeply respect him and I get inspired everytime from him. The world needs more people like him…
We are always up for supporting new businesses so when we heard a new dessert place was opening in our neighbourhood we were really excited!
Secrets is a new eatery specialising in desserts they also have savoury food such as burgers and wraps). On arrival we were greeted by a friendly server and seated. We opted to sit outside as the weather has been so lovely recently.
The menu only had the dessert options on it, however the waitress informed us of the savoury options! I did just fancy ice cream but that didn’t seem to be an option on the menu so, after a little deliberation we ordered a Ferrero Roche Belgian Waffle and a Kinder Crepe.
After 20-25 minutes we finally received our food. The presentation was ok, as expected to be honest, the taste however was average. I don’t want to be too harsh but I was underwhelmed. Like many a waffle before it, it was too dense and a little dry, and saturated in chocolate. The crepe was pretty much the same!
As a new place I would have expected it to open once everything was finalised and ready. The menus were dirty and not 100% complete, as was the interior decor. It was too dark and hot inside and it appeared that the old pub furniture was still in use outside.
I do think these are teething problems which may be fixed in the next few weeks/months, but it would have been nice for it to open once everything was set and complete- I had been so excited to have a dessert place within walking distance to me, but I’m not sure whether I will be returning!
