Surrounded by greatness

celebrating others


I am surrounded by great men and women. These are people who decided to break the mould and step into something new as a full-time career/side-hustle or an invested hobby/side-engagement. This blog is a shout out to all the people who have inspired me through their creativity. In this blog I want to implore you to leave your mark in some way, don’t die with any potential left inside of you – DIE EMPTY! This is the era of carpe diem; our days are numbered so use your time wisely and make that social change while you can. My wish is for all of us to show boldness and courage to pursue whatever has been placed on our heart to pursue and not allow fear, doubt, age, and finance, past mistakes or gender to hinder us. Enjoy the A-list below!

I think it’s good to be in the habit of celebrating the work of others and encouraging them in what they are doing. Who knows…they may be at the point of giving up, lose their zeal or think they’re not making an impact so one word of encouragement, one like, one share or kind message can really empower and uplift them! 🙂
