So in the year 2020, I took a few risk to enrich my mindset during the pandemic. I put more focus on my podcast that led to a new section called Reel Poetry, I accepted the Vice Presidency position at Sacramento Poetry Center, and I took a comedy course at the Comedy Spot online.
So, I took two course at the Comedy Spot online: Stand-Up comedy 101 and Comedic Storytelling. My teachers, Melissa Melgullicutty and Lisa Cantrell, were fabulous educators. Melissa is a seasoned comedian from Sacramento and Lisa is a Storyteller and founder of Capitol Storytelling(an organization that teaches people how to craft a story for the masses.). For 2 months, I learned how to craft a joke, rules to create jokes, perform to an audience, deal with hecklers, write a story, edit jokes and stories.
Being that I have worked with comics and been a Spoken word artist for several years, I understood the stage performance aspect but I did not know how to create jokes. So, Comedy 101 helped me find humor in my stories and my everyday life. But, we were not able to perform on stage in front of people due to the pandemic so the student just did a 5 minute set in their classes zoom room and ended with that accomplishment.
This year, as the restrictions started to be lowered, The Comedy Spot felt 2020 students should get an opportunity to get on stage and perform a 5 minute set to an audience. So, they sent a invitational email to all 2020 student and asked if they would like to perform. Ten students were brave enough to say yes and I was one of them.

I still smile when I think about what I have accomplished in 2021. Can you believe it? I am impressed.
There were a few failures: Mulitiple affairs ended and almost ended a great relationship but terminated friendships with wonderful women. Plus, it opened a lot of issues that I haven’t concluded. No savings while on unemployment. So, the bank accounts are somewhat bare, Sorry. The pandemic was a wake-up call. So, wake up! This is your time. You are better now but it still bothers us.
CharRon, You are a powerful individual who is bound for greatness. But, you have to believe it like mom believe in God. You are doing something that most people don’t do. So, evolve with it . Let the pandemic be your turning point. You are CharRon 4.5. So, here is a 2022 Task List:
- Create, record, and distribute a song
- Get on the radio again.
- Evolve in your business
- Be involved in your relationship with Bec.
- Help Sacramento Poetry Center get back into the poetry community.
- Be more involved in your kids lives
- Play keys and drums on stage.
- More exercise
- Work on your credit.
- Get a van or SUV.
- Stress less
- Make a ruckus.
So, what will 2022 be like? Your guess is as good as mine. But that is the joy and fear of the unknown. You have the power to change our future with family and fortune. Time is a commodity that we take for granted. So, do that. The business is our baby. A Serious Production is going to become a powerhouse. You just need to understand the business and it will grow with you.
Bec want to understand you but you have to let her in. She is in a fragile state and these past discretion have put her on the fence. So you have to reassure her. She has done a lot in relationships. So you need to be honest because she deserves that.
Understand. you are suppose to win and learn. So, let’s do that. Here are the keys. Happy 45th birthday, CharRon. As, CharRon 3.9 said “it is your time to shine.” Let’s makes that happen.
