Everything great in this world was created with passion. Passion is the key ingredient to building a successful business, but it also takes a high level of entrepreneurial spirit.
I would certainly hope my friend who is reading this doesn’t plan to work for others forever. Everyone has a niche; a creative side; a talent; something that they could turn into a lucrative career. The main question is… how high is your entrepreneurial spirit?
Whether you want to write a book, make music, start a pastry business, or start your own fashion line…this piece  will surely help you determine if you have AT LEAST the passion to work on your dreams, thrive, and prosper as a business owner/entrepreneur.
Here are a few questions to ask yourselves about what you want to accomplish…

Does it reflect who you are?

Is it unique?

Does it come from your heart?

Is it pertinent to the lives of others?

Will it provide life-changing opportunities for yourself & others?

Are you willing to keep striving, even through difficulty?

Do you have a plan of action?

If you’ve answered yes to ALL of these questions, then you’re ready!


Imagine a world where a child isn’t mistreated because of the way she/he looks….

It’s a good thing, isn’t it?

Unfortunately, we live in a world where people feel it’s okay to mistreat others for how they look.

I think it’s important to teach our children that our black is beautiful, so the trauma this beautiful little girl has experienced won’t happen.

Meet 10-year-old Kheris Rogers. The Los Angeles 5th Grader shares how she had to transfer from her mostly white school to a more racially diverse one to avoid being bullied for her dark skin. Unfortunately, the problem resurfaces at her  new school… from her Black classmates.

However, that didn’t stop Kheris from celebrating her melanated beauty. She, along with her 22-year-old sister, Taylor Pollard, created a T-shirt line, ‘Flexin’ in my Complexion’

Hit play below for more on her story.



I’m so glad Kheris didn’t let the ignorance she’s endured keep her from flexin’ her gorgeous complexion. I applaud her big sis who stepped up with the fashion show, social media support, and the help with T-Shirt line. Nothing destroys colorism like showing the world how much you love the skin you’re in. The ignorance will die when we stop perpetuating fair skin as the only standard of beauty.

Let’s teach out little girls to love themselves.
