As a diaspora Jamaican his zeal for climbing higher alongside his wisdom in art and wide skillset ensured that there was nothing out of reach for him. Bursting with the untapped potential he decided to plant the seed of his first business. A business he views as his firstborn child Kuttu Apparels, a compilation of his talents on display and available to the public.  Rodney has been a creative from a tender age his passion for art derived first from drawing and metastasized within him to even greater heights “I do not remember the age exactly but I remember finding one of my uncle's old sketchbooks and saw some portraits he did.

Photo by: Zasha-Kae Dennis  Let us imagine for a moment that you are 8 years old. You follow your parents to church every Saturday to sing in the choir. You dance happily with friends at school on warm weekdays unaffected by the world’s challenges. You hear the melodies, you feel the beat reverberating through your body, and immediately there is a sense of belonging nesting in your heart. Knowing that somewhere in the universe an older, a more accomplished version of yourself remembers these moments as the turning point in your artistic journey.  Natascia “Natty B” Bryan knew then she was destined for greatness and is now set to tour with Grammy award-winning artist Koffee.  Nastascia Bryan on stage with crew and Reggae Artist Koffee.

Creating The Best You

 You are Creators  By Jason Grant The flowers of the garden are so graceful, they know their time and season.  A time to light up and blossom colorfully into a beautiful flower, emanating sweet fragrances, and then a season to whither with dried brown leaves and return to the earth. Some human beings are completely different from the flowers of the garden. We find it hard to transition into our next season especially if we're in a season of stagnation, prosperity may seem far fetched. This fear of transition is completely natural because you're leaving a place of familiarity to a new setting. It is said that our comfort zone might be hard to leave because of complacency. When you become complacent you are planted and you see growth or development as a hard task. On December 31, 2015, I decided that I wanted something different for 2016, I decided that who I was in that moment wasn't all that I could so I decided to start my journey to self-development in that year.

How to Create a Vision Board for 2022

  Starting with  a Vision      All the rumors are true, if you fail to have a vision then you will live another year without  fulfilling  your goals. I have watched the years pass by with many individuals giving up on their journey early   into the start of the new year. Another year slides by and you are still not the person who you aspire to be or t hat you had set out to start working on at the begining of the new year. Well, that was me a few years  ago; falling back into bad eating habits, slacking off on schoolwork, eating junk food, and not holding  myself accountable. The truth of the matter is that old habits die hard. I can assure you that it requires  a  lot of  discipline to get on track and create your new reality .  A handcrafted pencil holder on my desk.                              If you have no confidence in self, you are twice defeated in the race of life. - Marcus Garvey  If you are like me who was once pondering and wondering what should I  have on my vision board

There is no Tomorrow

                                          "There is no tomorrow, the time is now"  Imagine with me today s your last day on earth, you can think of it as your expiration date and you are laying in your bed about to take your last breath and your final thoughts are gathering as you think back to all the things that you continuously put off until tomorrow now there will be no tomorrow. how devastated and unfulfilled you would feel.  Photo by: Jason Grant  The trouble is you think you have time!                                                           - Buddha   When we look back on our lives and see the numerous times that we have canceled, put-off, or delayed something that could have been done today we risk not getting it done ever in a life time. The truth is that we are not certain of tomorrow so we must make the effort to make today count because time passes by without you even noticing.    Photo by: Jason Grant  Hold on to the time that you have now because time we spend

How to Command your Morning

by Jason Grant                                                    Putting things into place                                            Photo by: Jason Grant  The feeling of not having things under control is nothing but fertile grounds for a chaotic week, a disastrous mind, or even a rough day. As a university student, I have learned this the hard way. Waking up from a four-hour sleep, immediately rushing to join a class and submit my assignment can be quite a task. Thankfully, my life coach and self-help books have thought me a few lessons on how to command my morning by putting things into place. He who fails to plan is planning to fail. -Sir Winston Churchill Photo by: Jason Grant   Commanding your morning can be simple, all you need to do is just a few things to get yourself together and be ready for a fresh day. What I normally do to start my morning is quite simple, I get up at 7:00 Am because I have the Christian faith I pray most days o begin my morning then I read

Why you should volunteer today

 October 13, 2021. By Jason Grant My heart feels liberated just knowing that I am  helping others. Photo credit: anonymous  How would you feel knowing that the child you just passed on the street has nothing to eat? What if you could give that child something to eat? Wouldn’t you be happy to help that child to find clothing and shelter? According to Oxford Languages, a volunteer is defined as a person who freely offers to take part in an enterprise or undertake a task. Volunteerism comes in several forms, whether you join an organization such as Rotaract club, a nonprofit organization or just simply undertaking an initiative on your own to help better the life of an individual it is considered volunteering.  If you think that what you have is too little to give or that your time won’t do much, I implore you to give what you have it really does make a difference. It is better to give of the little that you have than not to give anything at all. Even if you don’t have anything spend some
