I am Kai Storm, author of Alani's Bigger Hustle, Alani's Hustle Gets Bigger & You Just Don't Know. I do some freelance writing for a Christian magazine called, Elation Magazine. I run the author feature section for Elation called, KAI'S CORNER, I have written pieces in the book called, Sistah's With Ink. I have an upcoming piece in a collaboration book called Lipstick 3. My first book is being turned into a short film for the 2015 Sundance Film Festival. I have 2 kids, I'm married and I somehow find time to sit, chill and give thanks for all that I have and all I have worked for! As you read all of this you might be wondering to yourself....HOW DO YOU POSSIBLY KEEP UP WITH ALL OF THIS OR HOW DID YOU EVEN GET THIS FAR?
It sounds obvious but that's what it is with me....anything in life that you really want you work hard for and when people around you see your and/or feel your perseverance they either want to get down, help you or get out of your way, lol! Anyone that stays in your path with bad intentions gets handled by karma for sure. Never worry about them and when you are down, your strength and perseverance gets you right back up! To be honest with you, it's funny for me to talk about my writing career as I didn't really think of it as a career until I was published, before then it was just my release; my oh-so-needed mental release from....EVERYTHING! Now 3 books/3 years later it's a career and I am doing everything I can to keep it going! I'm learning a lot and still have more to go and I love every bit of it, even the low moments when I'm out all day and only get to sell 3 books or I have to chase a store to pay me for my books, it's all part of the hustle! #alanishustle!
