I have many, but here is one. It’s the simple adage that ‘wherever I go, there I am.’ I try to remember that, even if a vacation feels great for a change of pace, there are often no true geographic cures. Happiness and even calm, are inside-jobs and that is daily project I’m glad to be “working” on! Truly. Read more>>

Maia | Fine Art Photographer

“It’s never too late to become who you always wanted to be.” Even though I have been shooting for years, I didn’t make the leap to becoming a full time photographer until 2013 at the age of 42. It is truly never too late to follow your passion or your dreams! Read more>>

Leslie LaPage | La Femme International Film Festival

Do not give up! I personally tell women : Don’t Sleep Create! Because every day you are on earth you need to work towards your goals and put your goals into action! Stop letting people tell you cannot succeed! But most importantly educate yourself as women we have to be smarter than men to make it , which means we need to know ALL aspects of the business , creation, and marketing. Stop pretending you are the worm and be the hawk! Read more>>

Kim Genkinger | Writer + Meditation Teacher + Work In Progress

This quote, to me, is everything: And you ask “What if I fall?” Oh but my darling, “What if you fly?” The first time I read these words, I remember feeling my lungs expand and every cell in my body light up. This happens every time I re-read it, which is why I have it etched into the back of my iPad. I love it because, oh my darling, it’s a beautiful, gentle reminder of what life looks like on the other side of fear. Read more>>

Gary Goldstein | Screenwriter, playwright, novelist

Yes, it’s a lyric from the REO Speedwagon song “Roll with the Changes”: “So if you’re tired of the same old story… Oh, turn some pages.” I actually use it as a preface in my novel “The Last Birthday Party” (Thank you, Kevin Cronin, for the rights!). I think we can get very caught up in complaining about what’s not working in our lives as opposed to trying to do something about that. Read more>>

Avane Johnson | Senior Case Manager and Owner of Kyngston Kytchen Seafood + Jerk House

My dad has been in the music industry for well over 40+ years. One of the things that my dad has always reminded me is that “No one in life owes you anything.” and “Your only focus is to remain focused.” I live by that everyday. It reminds me how hungry I have to be for this in order to accomplish my goals. Read more>>

Michael Neill | Leadership Coach, Author, Speaker, and Thought Leader

There’s  a George Bernard Shaw quote that says: “This is the true joy in life, being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one. Being a force of nature instead of a feverish, selfish little clod of ailments and grievances, complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy. I am of the opinion that my life belongs to the whole community and as long as I live, it is my privilege to do for it what I can. Read more>>

Nicole & Scotty | Musical Sibling Duo

“That tickle at the back of a kitten’s nerve-endings when he hears his favourite toy shook. That jerk in your forearm to turn the radio up when your favourite song comes on. That instinctive physical snap to reach out for the tools of divine momentum. It’s also in picking up a paint brush, or musical instrument. Sustenance, a fruit, a pomegranate, delicious. It’s love in between this world and the next. It’s not frightening, it’s not addiction. It’s drive. A part of my being is made only of this tingle, and has it’s own vocal issue.” -Georgie Pendragon Read more>>

Come & CE Cleo & Elaine | Fashion-Inspire-Empower-Give Back

“I AM ENOUGH” We love this affirmation because we live in a world where we are constantly comparing ourselves to others and made to feel like less than enough. So we use this daily affirmation as a gentle reminder that: Who I am is enough. What I do is enough. What I have is enough. Exactly as I am IN THIS MOMENT, I AM ENOUGH. One of our first custom designed necklaces has this exact affirmation 🙂 We hold this close to our Hearts Read more>>

Rashon Howard, MSFP, AFC® | CEO, SHON LLC

My favorite quote is comes from the great Muhammad Ali “Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they’ve been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It’s an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It’s a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing.” Read more>>

“You can be anything you want to be Just turn yourself into anything you think…” (Innuend by Queen) this is my motto.. be everything you want to be. Read more>>

Ashley Ms. AyeVee Vargas | Writer & Curator

“He that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened.” – Matthew 7:8 I first read this quote in one of my favorite books, “As a Man Thinketh” by James Allen. So many years later I find myself repeating this short poem-like phrase in moments of uncertainty. Sometimes we just have to be brave enough to question and bold enough to try. I love this quote because it’s a beautiful reminder to keep being brave. Read more>>

Adrian Vasquez | Program Associate & Motivational Speaker

One of my favorite quotes was given to me when I was 21 years old by a mentor of mine. He told me, “You know what makes you a failure when you fail to correct a mistake or afraid to try.” Those words to this day resonate in my life and have a special meaning to me. We have all made mistakes in life, and some cannot be repaired however, I feel we have the power to either make amends or make changes. Read more>>
