Biggest Lesson ... 9.1%

First off, I would like to give thanks to every individual who took part in this project. I really appreciate the responses/feedback from all those who participated.

Life is all about lessons - what we take away from those lessons is precisely how we grow as people.

We are all running the race.

We all endure different types of pain.

It doesn’t make us any better or worse than the next person.

We can learn so much from one another.

Our struggles make us who we are.

Embrace them.

Embrace others.

Sarah moved to Atlanta, Georgia almost 5 years ago from a small town in North Carolina. She is almost a full year into her food blogging journey and is already a stand-out foodie in the city.

She loves all things food (of course), architecture, various forms of design, and exploring/discovering everything the city of Atlanta has to offer.

In this interview, we discuss her journey into food blogging, her personal experiences moving from a small town, what continues to motivate her, and issues that we as ‘millennials’ tend to struggle with in life.

Check it out below!

Thank you, Sarah - it has been a pleasure to get to know you more over these last few months and I commend you on your work ethic and tenacity!

Breathe Out ... 9.0%

Got an interview coming next week, but I have a message for you ‘til then …

Breathe Out

Right now
Whatever you are holding onto …
Breathe out
And let it go …

Free yourself
From your past
From your mistakes
From your worries
From those causing adverse effects in your life

Never be afraid
Never doubt your strength
The ability …
To remove yourself from an environment
To move upward and onward
To pick yourself up despite how far you have fallen …

Choose to be strong
Choose to be a light

Hold only onto things that bring you joy
Seek happiness
Remain true to yourself
Be mindful of your health
Don’t get lost into chasing a monetary idea of wealth

Free yourself and just be
Always be the best you that you can be …

So, how did we get here?

Well, it's Sunday morning and I'm sitting on a couch in Upper Manhattan wondering what the day will bring forth.  I'm swiping through Instagram stories, sipping on a glass of room temperature water, and I see that a model I've followed since 2014 is coming to New York.  Her story reads, " any photographers or artists in the area, I'd love to collab, send me a DM " ...

I'm aware that she has over 600,000 followers and her inbox might be completely overloaded, but I replied anyway: " Hey, I'm actually here visiting friends and family from Atlanta - I'd love to do a quick 5 to 10-minute interview about your journey. "

Fifteen minutes later, I checked my phone and see this message, " Ok, let's do it! - I arrive Sunday late-afternoon so let's touch base then! "

After spending nearly an entire day together - honestly - she is one of the most charismatic, genuine, and kind souls I have ever had the pleasure of meeting.

See for yourself.

Thank you, Stefania - for being open to meeting with me and discussing a number of topics both on and off camera.  I truly appreciated our dialogue.

Meet-Up: #Samoht ... 8.8%

Yo'!

A little back story, I had the pleasure of interviewing Samoht via FaceTime over a year ago after discovering him on Instagram - if you want, you can view that interview HERE.

Simply put, I knew the homie had talent after hearing a few of his songs on Soundcloud, but speaking to him allowed me to get an idea of his character and a little insight on who he is as an artist.  We planned to stay in touch since then and have maintained a banter consisting of jokes, encouragement, music, and other creative dopeness.

When it comes to artists that we discover - as fans of the music - you never know when the opportunity will present itself to actually meet them in person.

It is such a great feeling to have one of your favorite artists become one of your friends.

I'm truly grateful for these moments and experiences.

Here's a little of what we discussed while I was visiting in New York, check it out below:
