Career Growth

An amazing few months, but we need help to keep going!

I cannot begin to tell you how amazing the last couple of months have been for Transpire Foundation. When I called the IRS to find out the status of our non-profit status application in March, I was told it could be postponed up to three years because of the current political climate. You can only […]


I failed miserably recently. After forming a solid team, an individual dropped by to ask if she could join us. Without question, I wanted her, so I immediately accepted her offer. Had I not known her as well or had she been any other person, I would have initiated my usual screening process to make […]

Innovate: The Laws of the New Game Changers

If every single person in this world had a single true friend who cared unconditionally, and listened without judgment, […]

Reflecting On Blessings

The end of the year is a beautiful time where many reflect on their blessings. What are you professing your thanks for? This year, I am thankful for the trials, tribulations, curses, and things gone awry in my life. Why? Because I am thankful to be exactly where I am- in this place, at this […]

The Greatest Gift

Are you wondering what to do about gifts this holiday season? Every year the families grow bigger, the friendship networks expand, and workplace camaraderie grows deeper- rendering many people stupefied about gift giving. It really doesn’t have to be this way. Truly. Think back to your absolute favorite and most meaningful memories in life. Let […]
