Running Forward into 2017
Happy New Year from the Crate Corner
Dear Precious Friends,
It’s that wonderful time of the year again!!
What an amazing opportunity to celebrate the LAUNCH of a New Year and reflect on an incredible 2016. The New Year is HERE and I couldn’t be more excited about what 2017 has in store. I am so grateful to be CONNECTED with you and I look forward to keeping up with you on social media, meeting you in person, traveling, working, partnering or collaborating on many of the opportunities that will allow our paths to cross. God is so good!
A Glance at the Rear View Mirror…
As we close out 2016, I am overjoyed and feeling extremely blessed.
YOU are in my life for a reason and I am so grateful to family, friends, business partners, colleagues, alumni, fellow athletes coaches, mentors, leaders & soul-mates... You have ALL touched my life in more ways than one today and inspire me each & EVERY day to continue pursuing my purpose. You are INCREDIBLE! 💕
Life definitely has it's ups and downs, which in business, I now refer to as the “entrepreneurial roller coaster”. Nevertheless, I will continue to rise above, abiding by the live lokai motto: “When you’re at your highest high, stay humble. When you hit your lowest low, stay hopeful. Life comes full circle.” My hope and prayer is that in doing so, some aspect of my life will INSPIRE you to go, do, and BE more. To #ThinkOUTsidethebox, to experience life and to truly love without limits or expectations. Strive for 1% better everyday, never settle and reach for the moon.... Because you CAN!! You have ONE body through which we can experience this ONE life. LIVE. Don't exist.💪💥
We need examples as much or more than teachers alone. My life's journey is a message of achieving your best personal, health and wellness goals. #PreventionActivist, #BodyMindSoul #Architect #Adventurer

I have found home churches in Buckhead Church and Passion City in Atlanta, GA. With music that heals the soul and a message of faith and inspiration, the opportunity to serve and attend these churches during my travels is a blessing!
