Ardre Orie Featured in Rolling Out Magazine
When I first moved to Atlanta in 2009, I learned about a magazine called Rolling Out. They featured amazing news stories of celebrities and noteworthy individuals who were rising to the top of their fields.
I remember researching the cost to advertise my ventures in the magazine and recognizing that as a small business owner with a very small budget, this would not be an option for me and I tucked that dream away and put it to rest.
Six years later, on January 2016, Rolling Out ran a feature story on me.
Today, I share this story with you because I want you to remember that a dream deferred is still a dream. What’s for you is for you and there is nothing that anyone can do about it.
I never stopped working and my goals never changed. I believe with my whole heart that if we put in the work, we will get all that we deserve and more. We are destined to achieve anything that we harness our energy towards.
I will also recognize this article as a milestone and celebrate progress. Far too often we don’t take time to celebrate the milestones that we accomplish when we have large goals in the horizon.
Today, I live in Chicago and I share this article with you because it represents hope and I pray that the greatest of it lives inside of you. What do you dream of? Keep it close in your heart. There are no deadlines on our greatest potential, only destinations. A special thank you to my family and my team for believing in my dreams and goal digging side by side with me. All my love. ❤️
