No Excuse Will Do

One More Reason to Chase Your Dream Now This photo depicts a beautiful story that unravels in a ironic way. The young lady whose shoulder I have rested my hand upon is a Chef.

Ashalah’s mother who recently earned her Ph.D, has fought tooth and nail to give her children the 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 […]

True Colors

Confident women, don’t compete. My life has been bursting at the seams with new opportunities, simply due to the abundance of collaboration with other like minded women. I absolutely love women because I feel like there is so much that we endure. I personally understand how much effort goes into pulling yourself together to leave the house, care for families and friends and go out into the world to serve as a bonafide boss. Let’s be clear, being a woman isn’t easy. To our advantage, girl power 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 […]

It Was All A Dream: 3 Things You Must Do Now to Make Your Dreams Come True

There is a quote floating around that states something to the tune of “There were days I prayed for this”.

We will be blessed to perform 3 shows to a packed theatre of new audiences. Today, I am realizing a dream come true. In my humility and honesty, I must admit that this week in preparation for the trip, I felt everything except excited. I Read more […]

There Is Only One Difference

There is only one difference between those who do and those who don’t. We are all one simple decision away from doing what we have always dreamed of. One decision. It still baffles me that so many give up before the race is won, never stopping to consider that they have already come so far. If you opened your eyes this morning and you are reading this, you have come a mighty long ways. You are still standing and that means that there is more for you to do! While in college, I was heavily encouraged Read more […]

That God Kind of Love

I can honestly say that I wasn’t sure that our love would last. All that I knew was that I was willing to give it a shot. And if we were transparent and honest, even we would admit that we never really stood a chance at love. In the first 2 years of our marriage, we experienced 5 out of the 5 indicators that flag a marriage for divorce. And because of the trauma that my childhood revealed, I was in no position to recognize love. Broken or worse is an accurate description of my condition. When Read more […]
