JSC Words of Wisdom #11: The Importance of Taking Time Off…


PHILADELPHIA (JSC) — Good Friday morning, Everyone! It’s time, once again, for the JSC Words of Wisdom, a.k.a. #JSCWOW. As always, this will drop every Friday morning (except last Friday), more often than not, at 6:00 am Eastern Time. Feel free to share this on your favorite social media outlet with the hashtag — #JSCWOW.

If you haven’t already noticed, I didn’t post at all last week. No JSC Radio. No #JSCWOW. That’s because I did something that I haven’t done in ages: I was on vacation. I have spent the previous 10 posts using this blog as a method of motivation, reflection, and a little bit of self-care. But of all the things I talk about on here, the one thing I’ve been guilty of doing is not taking the time to rest and look out for myself. That’s what last week was for me and this week, I suggest that you find ways to do the same. This will be a lengthy post this week so pack a lunch.

JSC Words of Wisdom #9: Controlling the Heat


PHILADELPHIA (JSC) — Good Friday morning, Everyone! It’s time, once again, for the JSC Words of Wisdom, a.k.a. #JSCWOW. As always, this will drop every Friday morning, more often than not, at 6:00 am Eastern Time. Feel free to share this on your favorite social media outlet with the hashtag — #JSCWOW.

After taking last week off and giving Jazmine Duke the floor for Father’s Day weekend, I’m back on this first weekend of summer and this week deals with a little thing I like to call “Heat.” It’s more commonly known as anger and it can be an impediment to just about any conceivable relationship you even think of having.  Just like you can’t let being Hurt cripple your success, being angry does you even fewer favors. And I speak from experience.

JSC Words of Wisdom #8: Who Hurt You?


PHILADELPHIA (JSC) — Good Friday morning, Everyone! It’s time, once again, for the JSC Words of Wisdom, a.k.a. #JSCWOW. As always, this will drop every Friday morning, more often than not, at 6:00 am Eastern Time. Feel free to share this on your favorite social media outlet with the hashtag — #JSCWOW.

For this week’s Edition: I go from the highs of talking about awards to the root of why so many of us do the things we do in the first place. We attack life for a multitude of reasons and often the things we do are driven by something. What has become glaringly clear over the last few years is that a lot of us — myself included — have been driven by pain, rejection, and failure. In short: We’ve been Hurt. And as the above quote says, that can cause more problems than what it’s worth and you likely don’t realize why you’re doing it. Let’s get a little deep on this Friday.

For this week’s Edition: The last couple of weeks have been very good to your boy. In my industry, award season has come and gone and — for the first time — I managed to take home a pair of awards (literally, I took them back home with me to Detroit) and it got me to thinking about how as much as I talk about success and all things surrounding it, this was one of the first tangible monuments to it that I’ve received in years. It got me to thinking about how I — and you — and Get Ready for Success. So wake up. Smell the #covfefe, and get these words of wisdom!

For this week’s Edition, in my industry, it’s award season and it got me to thinking about how often — and loudly — people go out of their way to put themselves over. All success isn’t success and all gold ain’t real. This week: Greatness often moves in silence. Continue reading JSC Words of Wisdom #5: Greatness Moves in Silence

JSC Radio – Episode 1: What is JSC Radio?


PHILADELPHIA (JSC) —  So if you all recall, and considering it’s been damn near a year since I posted on this blog, I can tell you probably don’t, on April 20 of last year, I announced my rather ambitious mission to start a podcast called JSC Radio. As with many things that have gone on with me the last two years, plans changed abruptly and life threw me more than a few roadblocks and curveballs. However, after going through a pretty wild last 365 days: IT’S HERE. This is the debut episode of The Jay Scott Confidential Podcast, bka #JSCRadio.Let’s go!
