Nicole Blackwell | Cocktail Enthusiast & REALTOR®

Whether you think you can or think you can’t, you’re right. – Henry Ford This quote resonates with me. I truly believe that positive thoughts lead to good outcomes and negative thoughts lead to negative results. In times where I have doubted myself, I have failed. Yet, when I believe I can, I usually do. It definitely helps having the encouragement of family and friends who push you forward when you begin to doubt yourself. The Power of Positivity has helped me grow Cocktails for Mommy’s instagram numbers to what they are today in addition to becoming a Texas REALTOR® for Ebby Halliday, REALTORS®. Read more>>

“If I can show people how vulnerable and flawed I am, maybe others will relate.” That is a quote from Jon Bellion who is by far one of my biggest inspirations. I feel that a lot of people try their best to show how awesome and fun their lives are through posts and their music. I wanna show people honesty through the music that I make and I want people to know that it’s ok to not be at 100 percent all the time. I want people to hear my music and feel the transparency of my work so they can know that the art is real and not all made up. Read more>>

Kendall Salsberry | Photographer

My favorite motivational quote is actually from the Bible. My first year teaching I bought a mouse pad that said “God is within her, she will not falil.” I had failed multiple times in my life but knew that I was not going to fail anymore at my career. Looking down and seeing that verse gives me motivation to tackle my work because God is guiding my steps and I have faith that everything will turn out amazing. He has tremendously blessed my business, Salsberry Photography and I take work one day at a time, receiving my daily provision from Him. Read more>>

LaVonshe & Miles Robinson | Photography & Designer

“Failure is the opportunity to try again, with more experience.” This has given us the freedom to take more risks and have a more open mind when it comes to our business. We found ourselves trying so hard not to mess up that we stopped our growth. It’s kind of like the old saying, “if you’re scared to fail, then you’re scared to succeed.” Failure is a part of the learning process and without it, you’re limiting your perspective and opportunity to achieve more. We like the fact that it gives us the mindset that every single action, good or bad, can aid you in your process. Read more>>

“Even if you’re on the right track, you’ll get run over if you just sit there.” -Will Rogers I love this quote because it is simple and so very true. Even if you’ve made some small successes, even if your career is moving in the direction you want to go, you still have to do the work to make it to your final goal or destination. In most cases, becoming a good writer–or any creative professional–is a never-ending process. One needs to constantly try to improve, stretch the boundaries, take risks, and learn from others. Unfortunately, I’ve known writers who were very good and could’ve been spectacular but instead plateaued far short of their potential, simply because they believed they had reached their destination.

“Faith without works is dead.” – James 2:17 Although this scripture is only five words, they give me strength and remind me to always work hard. I can have all of the faith in the world that I will be successful but if I’m not dedicated and working hard, there is no point. I apply this quote to every aspect of my life because nothing in the world comes easy. When I am told no or a door closes in my face, I always repeat this scripture to myself. Read more>>

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than by the ones you did. So throw off the bowlines, sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover.” — Mark Twain (The author of this quote is actually disputed but Mark Twain is often attributed to it.) This quote reflects my entire outlook on life. It reflects my values, dreams, and desires. Additionally, it perfectly captures the spirit of travel. When I was in high school, I asked myself what I feared most in life. The answer that came to mind was “regret”. I never wanted to wake up one day, reflect back on my life, and realize that I had not fully lived it. Not only does this quote beautifully capture the spirit of adventure but it also captures the spirit of learning and growing. It encourages us to connect with the world around us, conquer our fears, and brave the unknown. Read more>>
