Some’n Unique Magazine, LLC has been much busier than you probably realize; we have an amazing cache of back-logged articles we’ve started releasing; including this wonderful interview! Enjoy!
Greetings everyone! Here’s an interview with the CEO of Two5m Productions, Rosie Rogers. Mrs. Rogers took time from her busy schedule to sit down and conduct a thought-provoking interview with myself; K.G. Bethlehem.
KG/S.U.M: How was this week a testament to your faith in moving forward and completing tasks?
Rosie: This week was filled with a great high and extreme low in my personal life. I questioned God. Cried out to Him and it seemed I couldn’t find Him amidst my hurt and disappointment. I had to make a HARD choice…keep the faith….or walk away. Walking away was not the answer and would only make matters worse. So my faith prevailed. I found myself reaching out to others in need even when I didn’t want to. I had to disciple myself to focus on even the smallest tasks through feelings of anger. All I felt like doing was curling into the fetal position and sleeping. Thankfully, my goals and vision now speak even when logic and emotions don’t. Only by the Grace of God and my unwavering faith was I able to complete tasks this week.
KG/S.U.M: In what ways “gain and loss” influence your decisions as of late, if any?
Rosie: Lately I realized I had been allowing circumstances to become excuses. The big decision I had to make was to stop making excuses or I would continue to suffer loss and no gain. I had to stop waiting on ‘Prince Charming’ and ‘Superman’ to show up and don my own superhero suit. I have adopted my very own philosophy to make decisions based on my Life’s Purpose and not my emotions, circumstances, struggles, opinions and ignorance. God created me with a plan and a purpose and I agree with His plan and purpose for my life, releasing my faith to go after what He has already allowed to be. I can no longer waste time with things, people and matters that don’t align with my Life’s Purpose. This attitude was birth out of many losses.
KG/S.U.M: What goals were set for this month; what are your top two goals that you want to complete before the new year? Why?
Rosie: Our two major goals were 1) The launch of Rosie Rogers Enterprises and 2) Identification of priorities, goals and plans for 2015. We had a staff meeting in early December and completed Goal 2 and I am pleased to announce that we launched Rosie Rogers Enterprises on 12.13.14 as planned!
KG/S.U.M: As you reflect on how you’ve grown as a person throughout the year; how can you measure such growth and what roadblocks have you encounter that tested your faith.
Rosie: Kevin, you ask questions that be digging at the heart of me. Lol! Your Q&A sessions are one of the tasks I struggled with this week. Lol! But don’t stop doing what you do. Keep it coming. It’s when you make me think, reflect and dig deeper that I find personal strength, courage and determination to push forward.
Now to answer your question. . .I have suffered some great losses in the span of two weeks. . .We can talk about that in details at another time because I really want the audience to know what challenges I have had to overcome in order to even continue to live. So that’s a ‘STAY TUNED’ moment. I have also had the opportunity this year to travel nationally and internationally as a Speaker with some amazing, talented, anointed, accomplished women (another STAY TUNED moment for details on that). My growth for the year was born out of the enormous pain of loss and the eye-opening experience of discovering new ventures. This year I have been overwhelmed with new ventures, new projects, expansion, cutbacks, restructuring and pruning. These are things on which I measure my growth. Although my faith has been tested tremendously, my relationship with God has remained intact and even grown. I understand His love for me as a Father all the more. I may get hurt, not understand His plan and His ways; at times I have even gone to ‘Daddy’ (Who I call God) and expressed my anger towards Him. But I love Him and know that He loves me and that’s how real relationships are. You may be angry, hurt and disappointed but not walk away because of it. I learned to trust Daddy.
I was my biggest roadblock for this year. My excuses as I mentioned before. Sure, money has been an issue this year but it only became a roadblock because I allowed it. In my tiredness and pouting I procrastinated and didn’t want to find creative financing. Again, I waited for someone, anyone, everyone to come and save or rescue me. It feels great to be over that and moving on.
In retrospect, I have grown exponentially this year in realizing just who Rosie Rogers is. I am stronger than I thought. I have more to say than I understood. I am more important than I allowed myself to accept. And I was created to bring change to the world through what I say, write, teach, produce and reveal. I have learned to value myself and accept who Daddy revealed that I am…created in His image, designed with a purpose…destined for greatness.
KG/S.U.M: If you could start a new year with one major thing that needed to be complete; what is the goal and why?
Rosie: Financial Stability for all the projects, visions and endeavors. It’s a challenge when you have to balance budgets between several great projects and limited funding. Funding would allow us to just relax and focus on delivering quality inspirational entertainment, enlightenment and edification to those awaiting.
KG/S.U.M: What new projects are in the works?
Rosie: I’m finally getting excited about the new projects. Had to get beyond the nerves and the fears first. In the Summer of 2014 I was asked if I was doing everything God told me to do. I was ready to answer the question with the usual smile, nod and confident yes when I realized I would be lying and chose to tell the truth. My honest reply in mid-nod through stammering lips was ‘no’. The questioner replied; “Then we need to fix that.” Handed me his card and demanded I call him. I didn’t call right away but I did initiate steps in the direction I knew God was leading me. It had become easy to hide behind productions and videos, but to step forward as Rosie Rogers “The Motivator”, “The Enterprise” and “The Speaker” wasn’t as easy for me. I hid behind the EXCUSES of, who really wants to hear me talk and with things so challenging in my own personal life, what can I say to others.
I allowed my faith to prevail and I stepped out into my Life’s Purpose of helping others discover and launch their Life’s Purpose. It is so rewarding. So the short answer…lol!…is new projects include the launch of Get A Life University! We will be doing more conferences, seminars, workshops and adventures as well as continuing to do exciting productions with TWO5m.
KG/S.U.M: What current projects are still out and how have they been faring in the public eye?
Rosie: Except for our annual Holla-Ween Comedy Show in October, we took a break on some projects, reorganized others and planned new ones. . .about the groundbreaking year of 2015. . .and it is a GREAT lineup.
In Brief: Gracious Granny is turning 28 and we are celebrating royally; Rosie Rogers Enterprises is unveiling new courses; production on Love Gone Crazy resumes; monthly events on the 3rd Thursday—Coffee Show, 4th Friday Jamz/Parties/Events and 2nd Sunday Productions. That’s all I can say for now. STAY TUNED for exciting happenings!
