My favorite quote is “No weapon formed against me shall prosper”. I love this quote, because regardless of the trials and tribulations in life, I always overcome them and continue to be great.

Afi Patterson | Attorney

My favorite message comes from Law 28 of the The 48 Laws of Power: Enter Action with Boldness. Whenever, I’m feeling insecure or begin to doubt myself or my vision, I quote it to myself or I pull out the physical book, thumb through the pages, and read the chapter. Read more>>

Katie Enright | Founder/CEO

Live life to the climax. We actually made that our company motto. I love it because it means so many things to so many different people and means something different to me everyday. One day it could be sleeping until noon, another day it could be hiking, traveling, taking a bath. It means do whatever you want whenever you want it and to embrace it! Read more>>

Preston Corbell | Stuntman & Actor

“Get up, gather yourself and do it again” I think this is important as a stuntman and was told to me by a coordinator. We will get hurt and it can be a scary thing.

My favorite quote is “Your comfort zone will kill you.” I have it hung up in my room. It’s the only thing I ever really hung up in my room. I would have never gotten where I am if I had stayed comfortable. I don’t feel like what I do is easy. I can’t sleep at night because my mind is either buzzing with ideas, or stress (so much of it). On snapchat, you get these memory notifications of what you were doing 1,2,3+ years ago, and recently I got a notification that it had been two years since I purchased my first embroidery machine.

JASON SOUDAH | COMPOSER : SONGWRITER : VOCALIST : PRODUCER : ENGINEER

My favorite quote/affirmation is “Leap and the net will appear” which is a Zen saying that I first heard at the end of a Jason Mraz verse in “Make It Mine” and then when I looked that up I found its origin. Read more>>

Trae Briers | Filmmaker

I live by the motto “Consistent Persistence”, which basically means take your time and make sure you do something every day towards the thing you want the most. For me, the thing that drives me and what I want the most is to make movies. I’m a firm believer that if you stay on task and only focus on the one thing you truly want to do, it will eventually come true. Read more>>
