Jordan Ages
( Atlanta, GA )

Jordan was the first artist I featured on ‘Misunderstood Genius’ when I started the Project Inspire series. Since then, he has grown as an artist and as a person - it is truly apparent in his recent expressive artworks.

I followed up with him to discuss the changes in his perspective on life and art, both personally and professionally, while also touching on how he was able to re-ignite his fire within this last year to start off 2019 with a bang!

Be sure to check out the video along with his artwork in the links below!

Project Inspire XIX ... #Yashar

Music Artist
Hip-Hop & RnB

I introduce - Y A S H A R
(from Brooklyn, NY to Atlanta, GA)

Yashar is really getting into a rhythm to be sure he is heard on these sound waves.  

Very down to Earth, hard-working, and truly believes in his ability to create.  He aspires to inspire others through his songwriting in a way that fully captures the listener and keeps them engaged with his charisma.

I had the pleasure of seeing him perform live at the Masquerade here in Atlanta back in mid-February and really appreciated his energy.  You could tell he put a lot of work into his presentation - connecting with the audience and overall stage presence - using his personality to keep the vibes fresh in between songs. I truly believe he will only continue to get better with time.

Project Inspire XV ... #MarcusWhite

GA State Alum | Accountant | Motivational Speaker | Entrepreneur 

I introduce - Marcus White
(from San Jose, CA to Atlanta, GA)

I was fortunate enough to meet the exceptionally intelligent, highly-motivated, and ambitious 23-year old at a mutual friend's birthday party not too long ago.  We chatted for a bit and I extended the invitation to be a part of my Project Inspire series.

The motivational speaking journey for Marcus started when he attended a meet-up event called Passionate About Being Your Best Self ... the host of the event asked if anyone else would like to stand up and say a few words - with no hesitation, Marcus took the stage and simply spoke from the heart.  From there, he started to frequent the events - speaking from personal experience and life lessons he has learned thus far.  He has also recently quit his corporate accounting job to start his own accounting/bookkeeping business ... he truly has 100% faith in himself and his abilities.

Check out the interview below:

You can find Marcus at the Buckhead Library the last Saturday of every month at 3:00pm and also at Strongbox West the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of each month from 7-7:30PM.

Thank you for being a part of the series, Marcus - I look forward to hearing more of your inspiring words and witnessing your well-deserved success.

Experience ... 5.5%

In the last year or so, I have heard more and more how life should be about experiences ...

... big or small, it doesn't matter.

If you must spend your money, spend it on an experience.
If you must use your time, spend your time taking in lasting moments.

Live simpler.

Worry less about materialistic things.

Take joy in your surroundings - the present - and continue to build stronger relationships with those closest to you.

Venture out - escape your norm - experience life for what it is.
