IMITATION is truly the greatest form of flattery!….
When you are a creator this phenomenon tends to happen more frequently in your life. You get used to it but the older and wiser you become and realize your own worth and potential and you begin to see that this “flattering imitation” becomes annoying and sometimes it just down right makes my ass itch!… i mean, DAMN can you come up with an idea or concept of your own…. GEESH!
When i was younger it didn’t go unnoticed, i just didn’t care to inquire or talk about it. Now that i’m older and wiser I’ve discovered that i’m owed money, lol because not only have my ideas, concepts, thoughts and sometimes my words…WORD FOR WORD VERBATIM have been copied and used. what this means is, I’ve been used as a consultant therefore, i should be paid.
Trust me, i know that more than myself have wonderful ideas because these are the types of people that i surround myself with at this point in my life. And i would appreciate if other people like myself, who have good ideas, and plan on implementing the ideas or concepts that they receive from Kiki….. SHOW SOME LOVE! GIVE CREDIT WHERE CREDIT IS DUE!
If someone inspires me to do something or create something, there’s nothing wrong with letting your inspiration know that they’ve been beneficial to your life, idea or concept.
DON’T WORRY, I’VE LEARNED MY LESSON…. and i’m thankful for a partner who has legal ez and has taught me to break out the paperwork!
