Laura Fooks | Chief Encouragement Officer

I’ve had a quote hanging on my wall or set as my phone wallpaper for 5 or so years now that says, “When God gives a vision, He’s faithful in the provision.” This has meant everything to me as I spent my fair share of years preparing myself and waiting to see my company come to fruition. In those painful moments of wondering why things hadn’t come together for me to live out my dream yet, this quote has comforted and encouraged me to remember there’s a bigger purpose at play.

La’Donna Jones | Master Artist

“Live by your own standards” my grandfather used to repeat this phrase to me until he passed. He lived the way he wanted and didn’t worry about what he was supposed to do or what he supposed to be. I chose to adapt that into my life. Being an artist is a journey built for the beautiful struggle. You see the world different and you can’t help it. You see it as a reflection of yourself and through that lense you’re able to see what life could be. I enjoy encouraging and supporting other’s. Read more>>

It is definitely a challenge to do this every day but this quote helps me muster the courage to get over my fears and go for my goals. Read more>>

Mindy Hoffman | Mental Health Therapist & HR Business Partner

My favorite quote is “Replace judgement with curiosity”. I’m not sure who the originator of this quote is but it has dramatically changed the way I see myself and other people. It has opened up a new perspective when I think about the world. There are times when I find that I am judging or being critical of myself. These are the times I am mindful and get curious why I am thinking about myself the way I am. It usually has nothing to do with what I am judging and more about underlying emotions. Read more>>
