I’ve Got the Keys: 4 Tips To Thrive in Writing and In Real Life

I’ve been writing for a very long time, actually for as long as I can remember. The funny thing is that in recent years, I began to discover that many of the coveted principles that I use to achieve the goal of writing a book are seamlessly applicable to attaining success in life. Who knew? Last year alone, I wrote over fifteen novels for my ghostwriting clients (not including self-help or business related books, that I also wrote), and while in my mind, fifteen is a very small number, I work with Read more […]

Stop Playing. Write Now!

Your Words Have Power Every new morning is filled with new possibilities. It is my belief that one of those possibilities that we should grab by the horns is writing a book and vowing to tell our stories. We deserve to be heard more now than ever. Inevitably, the world is listening in a way that is at an all time high and that is an added benefit. Gone are the days that a person with a story inside of them had to relentlessly search to find readers. If you have a story and trust me, you do, Read more […]

Turn the Page

When was the last time you read an average book? Chances are, you don’t really recall. As a writer, I am always finding new parallels between writing, the characters that I create and real life. In all honesty, living life is a lot like reading a book. Unlike the characters whose destinies have been written and they maintain no power to find their way, we have been awarded with so many more options with which to conquer life. We were meant to conquer life. We were meant to conquer happiness and prosperity Read more […]

Ardre Orie Recognized as A Changemaker by Black Celebrity Giving

All, I’ve ever wanted was to make a difference. I can finally say that I am walking in purpose. About 6 years ago, I resolved that purpose must be rooted in service. We must hear the calling to serve others before being able to delight in purpose. That said, I spent another 6 years listening to a higher calling regarding how that would look. What would I do in the midst of service? Would I be able to make money to survive and support my family through my service? Would my service make room for Read more […]

The World Needed You!

Can you believe that after God created the entire galaxy, filled with the moon and the stars and the sun and after HE sculpted the wondrous world with mountains and valleys and all of the beautiful things that we so often take for granted, He still thought that it needed you? Do you know how special you are? We spend so much time comparing ourselves to others that we don’t stop to simply smell the roses. When was the last time that you stood in the mirror and just admired yourself? You should. Read more […]

You Must Read This Before 2017!

A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. 2016 has stretched me in ways I never imagined possible. We have seen the remnants of the gentleness of life through tremendous loss and heartbreak and we have seen the joys of smiles from tremendous achievement. Through it all, we are blessed to see another day. But that’s just it. In retrospect, I can honestly say that for the first time in my life, I’ve finally figured it out. This very moment, I’m doing my life, my way, for me. I have Read more […]

5 Reasons to Chase the Fairytale in Love and Business

Chase the fairytale, it does exist.  This year, I’ve either written, edited or published a ton of love stories. It dawned on me just yesterday that many of the concepts that I have shared with you regarding chasing your dreams and business and purposeful living are applicable to love. It’s no secret that my theatrical productions deal with love and tumultuous relationships and I so freely share them because I believe these to be meaningful conversations that we must have with ourselves and Read more […]
