Dre Day | Talent Consultant & Entertainment Management

A quote that stuck out to me and I believe is “open doors you don’t mind leaving open for someone else. It means everything. Our community doesn’t believe in that often. Most times we have to show we made it out and others need to find their own way out. I just love to help. Read more>>

My favorite bible verse is Judges 6:14 which says ‘Then the Lord turned to him and said, “Go with the strength you have… I am sending you!” ‘. This verse means so much to me because it reminds me that I am equipped with everything that I need. When you take a big leap of faith like I did you can find yourself struggling to keep up with what you think you should be doing, having the things you see on social media and even wondering if you are doing enough. When I find myself in those moments I repeat this verse to remind me that I already have everything I need and that God is sending which means I am covered! Read more>>

Jasmine Twine | Creator & Multifaceted Entrepreneur

My favorite quote is one of my own. “You play the game against yourself, and you win at all costs.” -ButterflyJT This quote verbalizes that anything you take on in life, whether a new business venture, school, or personal goals, you have to do it for yourself.

“Never let anyone steal your joy” Wow, such a powerful statement. At any given moment the smallest action or word can deter your day. When you give power to others to rule over you, you immediately loose control of your day. This quote means that the actions or thoughts of those around you will not overwhelm your happiness. I am a firm believer of being responsible for your own joy and peace. You can not control what happens to you, but you can control how you react to your circumstances. In that, you should never let anyone or anything steal your joy! Read more>>

Janay Townes | Founder of LupiesUnite Non-Profit Organization/Lupus Influencer

My favorite affirmation is something that I say everyday when I wake up, “I May Have Lupus But Lupus Doesn’t Have Me.” I have been battling an autoimmune illness called lupus for the past eight-teen years. Lupus is a chronic autoimmune disease that can damage any part of the body; the skin, joints, and /or organs. In lupus, something goes wrong with the immune system, which is part of the body that fights off viruses, bacteria, and germs. Read more>>

When seeking change, one has to change their way of thinking. / In order to grown in life I have to adjust and pivot when things don’t go as planned. / This quote keeps me humble as things don’t always go as planned.

“Everything happens for a reason.” I truly believe everything happens for a reason whether we know the reason or not. God’s timing is everything and that could be a reason something has not happened yet. God also blocks things from your life which is why relationships, events, and everything else in life could be stopped. I live by the quote and it helps me cope with life better. Read more>>
