Dimensionally Yours: Poet, Writer, Entrepreneur and Now Turned Author, Until...

Hello Everyone:

Thanks for coming to explore my "Entrepreneurial Blog." This new inserted piece that I'm posting today is about me. I wanted to share a little of who I am, what I do, so you can get an idea of what I'm into. Not only that, but to learn more about entrepreneurial gems that you might have been looking for. So, without further ado, allow me to introduce you, to, ME.

A lot of you  may know me for many dimensions, but not quite all of them. As some of you already know the basics. My name is Quanda R. Graves better known by my pseudonym Until and I am the literary columnist and journalist for the California Crusaders Newspaper (CCN), as well as a contributing writer to Brutha Magazine. However, that's not all. Did you know that I was a poet long before all of the articles and other creative missions? Well, I am. I started writing poetry at the tender age of twelve and from there, its been writing poetry, writing since. You can find my poetry and articles on many websites, printed in a few magazines and on a few spoken word Cd's, on itunes.

Being a person that loves creativity, volunteering and indulging in many endeavors, I would say my life is a dream that I am working hard to bring to fruition. That's why you can see me in many places. I am the youth director for an organization called "The Los Angeles Black Book Expo (LABBX), as well as host my very own YouTube channel entitled Until TV; where you can see interviews conducted by yours truly, of celebrities, authors and more. For those who don't know, I also co-host a radio show called Until & Harmony Live which is currently on hiatus but will be back on the air at the end of the year, though I will also began hosting my very own radio show coming to you in the latter, entitled QS Radio.

Furthermore, I host several blogs and Facebook pages and have created a parent company with several businesses under it's umbrella. Yes, that's right, I am an Entrepreneur. The parent company is Quanda'Significance LLC (QS) and the sub businesses are some of the following: QS:Writers Group, a company that specializes in creative writing projects, QS Images is a photography company, U-Press Release is a blog that advertises and hosts press releases, Serious Business is a blog for companies to advertise and hosts their businesses, and Black Swan Publishing is for self publishing authors.  These are some of the same businesses you already see listed on this entity.

Now, back to poetry. Last but not at all least, I have just recently completed a long awaited dream of mine. I am now happy to share, well really announce, that I have now joined the elite of self publishers and can call myself an author of my very first poetry edition. The title of my book, "I Just Want to Write!" The publishing date is July 31st of 2014 and will be available as an e-book as well as printed copies. To pre-order your copy now, please visit  my website at

As much as I've shared with you here, I still have more, but this is all I am ready to allow you to know, right now. *smile* As you can see I've dimensionally invested in myself and working toward more. Now that I'm launching piece by piece of me, I thought it would be a good idea to compress most of what I do in one blog. I hope now you have a clearer understanding of me.

Below this article please see the links to my creative joys. Moreover, let me leave you with this, remember entrepreneurship is a way to create your own lane with the gifts you possess. The more baskets you have for your eggs to be placed in, in the end you'll be ok. I'm building an empire with hopes to leave an imprinted mark of me to be left behind and an income that won't be too shabby when it's time for me to rest these bones, how about you?

Until my fingers meet with the keys again may your entrepreneur spirit live on.

Love always,

I Just Want to Write!

Where Do I Begin?

Whether I'm on a speaker's panel, doing a book signing, supporting others or pitching QS Simple Treasures Greetings & Collections. Among all other questions, the most popular of choice I run into is;  where do I begin? I have to say, I love that question because I used to feel that way when I was in the beginning of furthering my passions with purpose. I found that often, some people will really encourage you, as well as fluff you with all of the what I call "Build To Nothing" talk. They invite you to seminars and other events with promises to answer that question and when you get there, they begin spouting platitudes that you've heard all too frequently before such as:
Believe in yourselfYou can do itBuild a teamFind someone who believes in you and what you're doingGo for itTake a leap of faith and trust yourselfEtcetera, blah blah and so on. Don't get me wrong, all of that is good, it is, especially for pep-talks if that's all that is …

Tune in. Listen. Comment. Call in.
