Colton Lublink

As a freshman in college, I had a desire to create my own content and begin that process of getting better and better. Summer of 2017 I got connected with John Hurst and some other football guys at UWG, they noticed my content and wanted some of their own. They connected me with the right people, and I began shooting photos at UWG football games. This brought me a lot of attention and connections. Read more>>

The Voiceover Beard

When people ask me how to get started in Voiceover, the best advice I have is “lose your job”. That’s what happened to me. I got unintentionally laid off from my first secure job in my early 20’s. It motivated me to take freelancing seriously. After that point, I had terrible taste in my mouth about employers. I think it was a little post-traumatic stress but it fired me up. Read more>>

Jamal Da Creator

I got my start designing clothes By having one of my Facebook followers reach out to me “out of the blue” requesting that I create her daughter a hello kitty outfit for her 1st because she loved how I dressed & Put Things Together. Note: At that time I’ve never done anything like that before so I was nervous as heck lol, but I went for it anyways & it just so happened that Facebook went crazy once I posted the images & that was the start of hundreds of clients. Read more>>

Desiree Robinson

I’ve always been creative. I love to create. For me, it gives me purpose. As a young girl, I remember writing, singing, drawing and trying to create accessories from actual writing paper. Due to life and choices and uncertainties about my future, I decided to go back to college when I was 27. I was freshly married, and both of us being in the creative space. Read more>>


I started DJ-ing at the age of 10 or 11 and haven’t looked back since. My father is who I tell everyone I got the game from. I credit him for getting me started. He taught me all the basics of being a DJ. I started off watching him when he would DJ for events (house parties, weddings, family events, etc.). I come from a household where every male is a DJ or in tune with music in some way. Read more>>

Gwennetta Wright

While running my tax business, about five years in the industry, God allowed me to start birthing other businesses. The vision was downloaded into me to start a Women’s Clothing Boutique name Fashionizta and a 501c3 nonprofit organization, Reach 4 Your Dreamz Inc. In looking back over my career as an entrepreneur, I must state that through all my wins and losses as an entrepreneur. Read more>>

Adele Ledet

My quest for Vegan began in 1996. I was a Junior in High school and saw an episode on 20/20 about a man who worked for a meat factory that allowed them to mix spoiled ground meat with new ground meat, package and sell it. This was also the time of year for Lent. So I decided I would fast from meat. I continued to fast from meat until 1999 when I was a sophomore in College and grew tired of Ramen Noodles and Tuna. Read more>>
