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 […]

3 Reasons I Will Cut My Hair While Raising Girls

What can be said of a woman and her hair? Locs, curls, tresses and ringlets oh my! Our hair is our crown, a badge of honor that we take immense pride in and garner attention for. For as long as I can remember, hair has been an oversaturated topic of discussion. Our history reflects as such. We can all recount pivotal moments in our hair journeys from childhood to maturation that either left a positive or negative sentiment in our hearts. Although there is no scientific research to prove 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 […]

An Open Letter to All the Little Girls and Women Watching

“And in that moment. She understood her worth”. Ardre Orie I have been working diligently over the past years to share messages of love, hope, encouragement and most importantly self-worth with women and teen girls. I wrote this open letter below over three years ago and it’s sentiment rings strong and true today: Dear Girls, Let me first start by saying that I am not writing this letter to throw hate or shade. I believe every woman to be beautiful in their own right. I am writing this Read more […]

Made You Look

Remember when you judged your worth based on how much attention that you received from the opposite sex? Who remembers spending countless hours selecting and outfit, doing you makeup and hair, getting dressed and hanging out with friends only to sum up your time spent by who most caught the eye of the opposite sex? Remember feeling a little less than if you weren’t the champion? The truth is, this isn’t just a thought process of the past. Many of us still think like this and in some ways, we Read more […]

Miracles Happen Everyday

  Only God Can Do That… Only God can take a young girl with an avid imagination to college for education and replace her chalkboard with a theatre screen, turn her lesson plans into screenplays, multiply one room filled with children into several rooms across the country filled with adults and ignite a gift of storytelling to redefine beauty for women within the soul of one who fought to find hers. Only God can do that. I was humbled the moment I received my first shipment of this Read more […]

Pain Gives Birth to Purpose

Pain Gives Birth to Purpose… Have you ever wondered why you were going through what you were going through? Life and it’s circumstances are not just arbitrarily happening to you. They are a direct result of the energy and action that you sow daily. Pain is a by product, a sum of parts; pain is inevitable. The greater question becomes: what will you do with it? This past weekend, I spent the a few short hours in Atlanta as a panelist for the WYN Conference hosted by WETV’s new series Cutting Read more […]

Popularity is Not Success

Popularity is not success. I repeat, “Popularity is not success”. This week, I saw a quote on one of my favorite blogger’s wall that resonated with me and it read: Popularity is not success.  Have you noticed that social media is driving our self-worth? Whether we choose to admit it or not, we are absorbing “likes” like air and when they are scarce, many of us become negatively impacted. Recently, I released the trailer for my forthcoming documentary “I AM” (if you haven’t seen it, see Read more […]

Sex Kittens & Damsels in Distress: 3 Ways to Create Your Own Character

This weekend, I did something that I rarely do, watch tv. For as long as I can remember, I have enjoyed and been entertained by my fair share of reality tv. I like everyone else, have watched, made judgements, laughed and even looked forward to many of the events portrayed on the plethora of shows offered to us but for some reason, last night it could not maintain my attention. I saw so many beautiful women but I couldn’t help but think that they were not an accurate representation of me or the amazing Read more […]
