From Stripping to Stardom, We Present to You: CARDI B
Mrs. Offset had one hell of a 2017!
It’s a new year, time for a NEW YOU.
A new year can bring change, a feeling of rejuvenation, a refreshing feeling, a feeling of hope! Do NOT let anyone discourage you from starting over.
How can you grow yourself, your business, your brand?
The Naysayers will remain naysayers,
What if Cardi B, would’ve stayed in the strip club?
What if Cardi B, would’ve turned down Love and Flip Flop?
What if she would’ve never made that VIRAL VINE?
But most importantly, what if Cardi B would’ve never gotten those gang banging teeth fixed?
What if Cardi B would’ve listened to the naysayers? We’d never know what her future would’ve held,
She most likely would still be on that pole.
The pole wasn’t her only goal.
How did she manage to BOSS UP?
See, Cardi B is a HUSTLA.
Success is a matter of baby steps. Cardi B left stripping in the past only to have four major hit songs on THE HOT 100…….in the same time frame.
What B*tch working as hard as her?
Success DOES NOT come to those who wait.
Success comes to those who want the cake.
Of course, it makes sense waiting on opportunities is like waiting for money to fall from trees or for hell to freeze over.
It’ll NEVER happen!
If you wait on opportunities, you will be waiting
To hell with waiting, this blog is meant to break down Cardi B’s hustling hacks and give you a 2018 to look forward to.
How did this 25-year-old ex-stripper take 2017 by a chokehold and claim her success?
How did she do it?
At the end of the day, she’s just an ex-stripper right?
Do you have the ambition that Belcalis Almanzar possesses? Do you have what it takes to Cardi B your 2018? Do you have the determination that Mrs. Money Moves conquers?
Cardi B is the epitome of the success, that you can only dream of when living in the “hood”. Mrs. Soon to be wifey of rockstar rapper, OFFSET has set the tone.
She is not playing, she has coined herself as the “Trap Selena” and is all about being HERSELF.
How can you FOLLOW in this fiance’s steps?
Let’s take a look at Cardi’s timeline to stardom:
Belcalis Almanzar achieved success at such a young age, growing up in the South Bronx wasn’t easy for the Half Trinidian, Half Dominican Mami. She witnessed more than a young girl would with poverty and Domestic violence.
She once stated: “It really saved me from a lot of things. When I started stripping I went back to school.”
Stripping was her stepping stone.
She escaped her domestic violence situation by supporting herself financially, gained popularity through Vine and Instagram, caught the eye of leeching Mona Scott, and finally finally finally TOOK A RISK and began her career as a full-time female rapper.
You see it’s not where you’re at, it’s where you want to be.
Cardi B knew what it took, even after DJ Self doubted her blatantly stating that she wasn’t ready.
Well, this young man CLEARLY wasn’t ready for MRS. number one, Grammy-nominated artist.
Sh*t Hit the fan!
Her success in 2017 is unmatched, she became one of the top streamed artists, endorsements from Steve Madden to nominations from the BET award to the Grammys, not to mention her entertaining interviews with some of the best, like JIMMY FALLON.
Oops, how did we forget!
The ENGAGEMENT TO the member of the Migos, rockstar/rapper, OFFSET

That’s how you use 24 hours a day, 365 days out the year to total up to a POPPIN ASS 2017.
