Andrew Raaber | Astrophotographer & Videographer

“I often think that the night is more alive and more richly colored than the day.“ – Vincent Van Gogh. This quote really means a lot to me because it helps express my passion for astrophotography, and why I can stand out under the stars in freezing temperatures through an entire night. It stimulates our minds, imaginations and allows us to see light wavelengths we would normally miss because of our sun. Read more>>

Aaron Michael | Founder & CEO of Earth Love Gardens

My favorite affirmation I say each morning is “I am Love.” Nearly four years ago I realized the most important thing to know and feel is that we are, and everything is, in a form of love. This “love” is something that can be palpably felt in your chest, your heart, and provides us with positive feelings of warmth, connection, knowing, and more. It was connecting with this recognition that I am Love that grounded me in a sense of well-being and gave purpose to everything I was doing. Read more>>

Dallas Blaney | Executive Director of Challenge America

Mine is not a quote as much as it’s a concept. Artistotle had this idea about the Doctrine of the Mean. While I’m sure others find different meanings in this concept, what I took from Aristotle is that you can only truly determine if someone lived a virtuous life when you look back on that life in its totality.

Gretchen Roberts | Deputy Director at EarthLinks, Inc.

The work is always there tomorrow. I say this a lot to my very dedicated staff when they are staying late or when I am suggesting they go home to take care of themselves. In the human services field, and in all fields really, there is always more work to do, but it won’t get done more quickly or more effectively if you or your staff are tired and in need of self-care time.

“You can fail at what you don’t want. So you might as well take a chance on doing what you love.” – Jim Carrey In 2015, I graduated from Plymouth State University with a Bachelors of Science in Meteorology and a minor in Mathematics. Similar to many college students, I spent four years trying to convince myself I was on the right path. In the right major. Taking the correct steps to succeed in life. Read more>>

Demie Fultz | Blogger and Business Owner

The name of my business and personal brand is Start Going Further. To me, Start Going Further is EVERYTHING. This came to be through my realization that to do anything in life, to achieve our wildest dreams-we MUST be going further. With everything that I do, the words Start Going Further flow through me. I think the message of Start Going Further can help so many people, just like these words helped me. Read more>>

DuCe MCguire | Recording Artist & Producer

My favorite quote is Obstacles are things people see when they take their eyes off of their goals It means that obstacles only exist when you give life to them. I personally don’t believe in them. My focus is grand. I don’t see them regardless of the hardships or set backs I may experience. I like this quote because it keeps me motivated. Read more>>
