Daily Inspiration: 9/21/15



My Monday motivation are these phenomenal African American women! I was so moved and inspired by the dignity and strength shown in each of their acceptance speeches. The camaraderie between the actresses touched my heart because society always wants to put women against each other and sensationalize rivalries. These awards are long overdue. I hope that more minorities will be given the chance to be publicly acknowledged for their talents 👏 Cheers for progress :0

The Story Behind the Book “Against All Odds: 4th…:

There’s no way you can listen to this story and not feel inspired. Please take the time out of your day to see why I am incredibly lucky to have such an amazing, hardworking, and ambitious father. He gave me one of the greatest gifts and that’s my passion for writing. He epitomizes the idea that it doesn’t matter where you come from in life. As long as you never give up, the world is your oyster!

Travis McDermott: Infinity Chiropractic

With so many negative things going on in the world, it’s important to remember all the good things that sometimes get overlooked. Contrary to popular belief there are lots of wonderful people left in the world like my good friend Travis. I recently had the pleasure of filming a testimonial for his new clinic, Infinity Chiropractic, in Missoula, Montana.



I met Travis McDermott two years ago when I accompanied my mom on her chiropractic appointment. I was having problems with my back and he suggested that I try chiropractic adjustments. I’ll admit I was extremely skeptical because everything about getting adjusted petrified me from the popping sounds to the neck turning. However, I had reached my breaking point since medicine, Icy Hot, and just plain ice weren’t cutting it anymore.

Initially my heart was racing, I cried (a lot) and I could barely breathe every time I came in for an adjustment. The average person would have dropped me like a hot tamale and told me to seek treatment elsewhere and cut their losses. Being the kindhearted and determined individual that Travis is, he accepted the challenge of helping overcome my fears and allow him to help me by figuring out to ease my anxiety. Music was the key to getting my mind off of the “impending doom” of getting adjusted. It allowed me to relax, find my happy place and let him do his job. Once I was able to calm my body down enough for the adjustments to become effective I began seeing a tremendous decrease in my low back. When I started there were days that I could barely sit up without feeling agonizing pain. Now I can go as I please and I feel like I got my life back.

I am a firm believer in paying it forward and there is no one more deserving of praise and recognition than Travis. I encourage you to support my friend because he is a genuine, humble, God-fearing and thoughtful family man that could use some help. He recently opened his own clinic and I couldn’t be more proud of him. He’s given so much to so many that it’s time for someone to do something for him! If you’ve ever started your own company you know how important it is for small businesses to find clients and gain brand recognition. I would be so appreciative if you could help me spread the word about his clinic and help his social media grow.

Thanks in advance for your help! Have a great week everyone:)

Gregory Dean: Achieve Physical Therapy Solutions

Achieve Physical Therapy Solutions

Achieve Physical Therapy recently opened in Marietta, Georgia. Owner Gregory Dean aims to give back to the community that helped mold him into the man he is today. He has over 10 years of rehabilitation experience. Dr. Dean communicates with and educates all therapy patients regarding treatment, setting expectations for return-to-work timeframes and emphasizing education and motivation.

Our clinic is the first to offer the AlterG™ Anti-Gravity Treadmill in Marietta, Georgia. This treadmill is a game changer for anyone wanting to lose weight, train, or rehab an injury because it allows you to workout without pain and reduces stress on your joints/muscles.



Most businesses focus on profits and numbers, but Dean’s primary concern is building a solid relationship with the community by helping its citizens both in and outside the clinic. As a McEachern High School Alumni, he was fortunate to become a prominent athlete in Track and Field and Football. These experiences have allowed him to pay it forward by becoming a mentor and helping others to achieve the most out of life. In addition, he makes volunteering a requirement for his staff, which in turn allows him to lead by example.

I am thrilled to be working for a company that shares my outlook on life in regards to being of service to others. I believe in Mr. Dean’s vision of helping people become the best versions of themselves. He has my utmost respect and admiration because he’s a family man with a genuine heart and desire to make the world a better place. I feel extremely blessed to be working with him and I want to do everything in my power to make this clinic a success.

We want to inspire our community by proving that you don’t have to be a big corporation to make a difference. Outcome based service and state of the art equipment is at your disposal. We are at the forefront of technology and aim to assist patients in achieving the optimal level of health in a time-efficient and cost effective way. When you invest in our treatment, we do everything to ensure you reach your goals in a timely manner.

Ashley Greene: Ladii Luv Inc.


I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Ashley Greene for a little over a year and she is by far one of the hardest workers I’ve ever encountered. Saying she’s a jack of all trades is an enormous understatement. She juggles being a mom, entrepreneur, hair stylist, and retailer like it’s nothing. More importantly, her infectious, bubbly demeanor makes it impossible to be in a bad mood around her. The world would definitely be a better place if more people like her existed.

Charleston Daily Mail | Salty brings sweet tunes to King chorus (video)



I am so proud of my Step-Grandfather Crystal Rogers! He was recently featured in a Charleston Daily Mail article and I couldn’t think of anyone more deserving. He has a beautiful voice and he’s such an inspiration to me. It’s so nice to see him publicly acknowledged for his talent. I can only hope to one day have as much of a positive impact on my community. He’s the type of person that radiates positivity and he has the biggest heart. He always has a kind word or joke to tell. The world would definitely be a better place if more people were like him.
