What are you using your voice for?

Don’t wait for the world to recognize your greatness

Live it and let the world catch up to you…. Because TBH the world is filled with selfish people. Some may see it and not even help you shine. But once you’re “there”… At the “top” they come flocking. Always stay gracious (no- not best revenge is your paper 😂. Even if it kinda could…

YOUR LIFE, YOUR BOOK: Guest blog post by Modibe Modiba

I’ve often wondered what the whole purpose of life was; how as humans, we’re brought into this world to do one thing-live. Life doesn’t come with a manual, nor a script, each day that we’re  given on earth is in fact an opportunity to write our own story, a story of our lives. We wake…
