Act Like You Want It

Years ago, I started a small practice as a Certified Life Coach. I’ve always been an adviser of sorts, a motivator, and an encourager. I’ve always had a heart and compassion for people. I’ve always been a cheerleader for humankind and people loved to (and still do) seek me out for advice and encouragement. I figured if I married my love for people and my love for advising, motivating and encouraging together, life coaching should be the end result! Read more dirt…

Soul Music & the South – A Trip to the Stax Museum of American Soul Music

Growing up, music was a huge part of my life. If we weren’t traveling around singing and playing, we were sitting around with family and friends enjoying all the latest hits. There was a huge variety of music that we played and listened to such as gospel, soul, jazz, blues and classic rock.

My grandmother and I would spend Saturday evenings sitting in her living room listening to the local radio station do a mix of soul and blues music all night long.

The Leading Lady: Going Big in Modeling and Acting with Elaina Guidry

At any rate, scrolling through my social media timelines one night, I came across this very alarming video. There was a young lady crying in a video and I couldn’t scroll by without seeing if she was okay. With the times we are in today I didn’t want to be insensitive and scroll by without addressing the concern I had. Read more dirt…

More Life – Living Life to the Fullest with Model & Mortician Jazmin

There are a few things life has taught me that I would have never embraced when I was younger. First thing it has taught me is, to never say never! It’s when we open our mouths to confidently say what we’d never do that we find ourselves doing the exact things we said we’d never do. Life has always had this funny way of working things out that way, so never say never!

Second thing life has taught me is, keep an open mind and inquire because you never know where time, chance, and an openness to experiment and learn will take you. Continue reading “More Life – Living Life to the Fullest with Model & Mortician Jazmin”
