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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

What Do They Say About You?

Greetings Friends, How often does yesterday’s trash hold us back from reaping today’s treasures? Recently, I was speaking to a dear friend and she was upset that someone had reminded her of a past transgression in which she dated a guy (I can’t quite refer to him as a gentleman because that is not the manner in which he behaved) who was extremely cruel and abusive to her. It bothered her so badly that she was moved to tears. In the midst of our conversation, I could see that her self-esteem Read more […]

I AM

I can officially add the title “Director” to my resume and I am overwhelmed to say the least. Of all of the goals that I have set for myself, the completion of this project would make the list of the most challenging. I set my soul on becoming a director because I wanted desperately to create media that could reach the masses and tell our stories and today, I am proud to say that I am finished with my first film! “I AM” is an American documentary film that candidly accounts one woman’s 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 […]
