The best teacher in life is your own experience- Nipsey Hussle I feel that even beyond myself this is how my generation has always looked at life. That is what makes the generation so powerful. Always observing and absorbing information. Always adventurous living life dangerous but not recklessly. Im very hard headed myself in return that thickened my skin. I learned to roll with the punches and keep pushing no matter what. Prolly even before I came across this quote that’s just how I got down. I like the quote because it really does embodies the life we all live no matter what background we come from. Read more>>

“Grow Through What You Go Through” As I have grown my business, I have learned so much about myself as an entrepreneur. I have always been a resilient person with a positive mindset. When I go through challenging experiences, I always look at it as an opportunity to grow. There is always an opportunity to grow whether you’re celebrating something really amazing or pushing through some tough challenges. As cliché as it sounds, I truly believe that everything happens for a reason. For me, this has only affirmed the need to continue to find the best in every situation by continuing to grow as things come along. We are not supernatural beings that can control the space time continuum. You eventually learn to pick which hill to climb, embrace the moment, and use it as an opportunity to grow as you push through the moment. Through some of the best moments of my entrepreneurship life thus far, I have used that as motivation to continue the positive momentum. You can never stop learning. You can never stop growing.

“Focus & Outdo Yourself”. This quote means everything to me, not just a quote but a way of life for me. I strongly believe that if you’re locked in, and I mean like LOCKED IN…the only person that can stop you is yourself. And with that being said, if your only competition is trying to be a better version of yourself than you were the day before, you’ll continuously grow and shine. Read more>>

One of my favorite quotes is “Art is an individual’s documented reaction to existence” – Chance The Rapper. This quote means so much to me because its my exact reason for drawing. There are billions of people in this world and everyone has their own unique story, with art it gives individuals the opportunity to express themselves their own way. I started drawing because I’m a quiet person that doesn’t talk much, and I sometimes find it hard to express my thoughts with words. When drawing it’s easy for me to express myself and I find it relaxing trying to turn my thoughts and experiences into something everyone can see and try to understand. Read more>>

“You are enough”, three little words that hold so much meaning. I love that this quote is so simple, yet so complex and it can mean anything to anyone. You are enough for that job, you are enough for that relationship, etc. Authenticity is the root of life. We are all different and we need to be more accepting of ourselves, reminding once again that “I am enough”. You are everything it takes and your past does not define YOU. Be thankful for your struggles because they’ve taught you strength. Be thankful for your body because it is your home. Be thankful for the bad things in life because they open your eyes to the good that you wouldn’t have payed attention to before. Happiness is letting go of what you think your life is supposed to be like right now and genuinely appreciating it for everything that it is. Read more>>

Monica Johnson | Founder of Pallet To Palate Charcuterie Experiences & Special Events

“Just because” has recently become one of my favorite mottos. In fact, this short and simple phrase really nudged me to start my business, Pallet to Palate. I’ve held onto these two little words over the last year or so, and it has helped shift my perspective on the way I view life and the way I choose to fully live my life now. There will always be a reason to celebrate: birthdays, engagements, baby showers, weddings, etc. But how often do you get to do something extra special or out of the ordinary for no other reason than “just because”? And that’s what has inspired me. I want to live my life to the fullest and do the fun and crazy things that I used to only think would be worth it for a special event or occasion. I don’t wanna wait around for that one thing to maybe happen or that unknown person or friend to come along. I want to take full advantage of the opportunities and experiences right in front of me. To create lasting memories and moments with the people that mean the most to me, for no other reason than “just because”…because why the heck not!. Read more>>
