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 […]

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 […]

Life, Love & the Pursuit of Liberty

I hope that this message finds you in preparation to enjoy a day of peace. And while today is a celebrated holiday for our country, I use it as a day of remembrance and thankfulness for liberty. As I reflect, I recognize that in 1865 when America, signed the Emancipation Proclamation, my ancestors were yet still enslaved. I often wonder how life would have been different for me and my family and loved ones having to endure such harsh conditions. I also take time to reflect on race relations in Read more […]

Lemonade & Other Sweet Drinks

What’s Inside The Heart of A Man? By now, you’ve drank all the lemonade that you can stand after the surprise release of Beyonce’s new album bearing the same title. If there is one thing that Queen Bey knows how to do, it’s market. She is beyond iconic when it comes to selling us a storyline and a ticket. And whether or not you could afford a ticket to the World Tour, you and I along with everyone else in the world pulled up a seat at the table and sat down for a cold glass of #lemonade. That Read more […]

Not Safe for Work

When I was in 7th grade, I made mostly D’s and F’s on my report card. I am certain that the teachers referred to me as a troubled child. I could be seen on any given day with my feet up on the desk, popping gum and talking back very disrespectfully to the staff. I attended a school named Howard Bishop. And at the time, the school’s reputation was on the mend from many unfortunate mishaps due to an increase in gang activity and so called turf wars. One could assume that I was just like every Read more […]

My Body & My Choice

How many times have you felt like you didn’t meet a certain beauty standard? I wanted to share a personal journey with you because I know that someone reading this has gone through their own battle with beauty. In high school, I was rather slim and ate whatever I wanted. Exercise was what people who had nothing better to do with their time did or so I thought. It certainly wasn’t for me. After graduation, I attended Florida State University and my dorm room was across the street from Krispy Read more […]

Ardre Orie Announces New Film

I don’t know about you but Beyonce’s new song Formation has me even more excited about unleashing girl power and magic into the world! Whether we are in male dominated fields or creating lanes of our own, there is no denying the power of the woman. We can do anything! Today, we are conscious, relishing in our power and in full throttle when it comes to protecting the people, places and things of value in our lives. I believe in girl power so much that I selected a team consisting of only Read more […]

Ardre Orie Announces First All Male Cast

Part way through a presentation I was making to a CEO of a mid-sized company, I noticed him look down and away. He stopped asking questions and turned quiet. “I’ve lost him,” I thought and went home feeling dejected that I had bored someone I tried hard to impress. When he followed up a week later to continue our dialogue, it took me by surprise. This excerpt taken from an article posted in The Global Male is one of the countless examples of miscommunication that occurs between men and Read more […]

Life Loves the Fearless

The moment that I decided to live free from fear, everything changed. To be honest, I don’t know that I really believed that abundance was for me. The truth is that it is for all of us. Today, I’m not going to write a long message because sometimes less is more. So here goes: 1. Whatever you are afraid of is holding you back from reaching your greatest potential. 2. Fear is learned. We are not born with it. 3. Fear can be dismissed. 4. What you want most is on the other side of fear. 5. Read more […]
