Welcome to my Ted Talk!

I’m seriously practicing because I plan to have a real one— one day. I talk out loud in my apartment because hearing the words leave my lips makes a whole lot of difference. I have to make sure the words make sense somehow before I write them.

For the past two months, I have been having an existential crisis. It was halfway through the year and I had done nothing to further any of my Brands, writing or blog(s). I have a habit of making promises to myself with the intention of keeping them so when I found these pages staring back at me, blank, lacking substance, void of my voice, I panicked. I know panicking is never the appropriate response but something was missing and I needed to regroup, revamp and get to work.

I thought about the people that kept pouring into me. A good talk or a couple good talks can really change your perspective and life. One of the best things you can do is ensure you’re completely surrounded by people who know how to pour from a place of love.

What do I mean?

You will get a lot of advice. Some you will probably take, others you might ignore. But, there is something different about when a person truly cares about your well being. They understand your ins and outs and knows exactly how to get you motivated.

So, because I was poured into from all angles, I wanted to pay it forward and a piece of advice. The inspiration for this piece came while working another blog post about my top five red lipsticks. One of my favorite cosmetic companies just launched a new shade of red that got me super excited. But have you thought about how many shades of red lipstick are already are out there? Why do we need another shade of red? But why not?
