Dixye Wilson

This business was started to fulfill a personal desire to serve others and assist with creating a mobile experience that provides relief and relaxation to the soles of your feet. On my journey to find a way to relieve stress and relaxation for myself, I found that there are so many health benefits to foot soaking, foot massages and essential oils. This journey has been so rewarding for me. It is so heartwarming to see that the services I provide give my clients a form of relaxation. Read more>>

I joined real estate almost a year ago and had a different look and out of the box way to brand myself. I get judged on a daily basis and I wanted to change the stigma on tattooed people in a professional industry. I got some backlash when I first started, which eventually led to the news doing a story on me. I’m almost a year in and am now in the top 1% of Realtors and will close off the year with numbers that far exceed the average agent’s first year. I can go on forever with what I have experienced/accomplished in this year. Read more>>

Derrek Trinosky, Anthony Jones and Zackary Reed

RideClutch originally started as a pure motorcycle apparel company, when one day, Founder Derrek Trinosky saw another company giving a caraway and thought “Why can’t I do that with a Motorcycle?” It took years of hard work to get the concept off the ground, but we had a serious competitive advantage early on: Ride Clutch had Derrek’s social media following and experience. Between his savvy understanding of social media, patience, and hardwork, Derrek was able to carefully navigate the ever-changing social media landscape. Over the next three years, RideClutch would grow and evolve to become a leader in the sportbike giveaway space. Read more>>

We’re Moving Forward! is a 501c3 non-profit organization (ID# 47-2199053) founded by three women whose own lives were dramatically impacted by a traumatic brain injury of a family member. Since 2009 we have been organizing social events and activities ranging from a simple trip to the movies to a three-day adventure out of town. In October of 2014, we formally became a nonprofit to continue offering this very important avenue for growth, allow us to reach more families and provide a wider range of group activities. The organization is structured in such a way as to try to involve the entire group in the planning, funding, and execution of activities and events, further providing the stepping stones for our participants to initiate and become involved in the rebuilding of their own social lives while fostering new and ongoing personal relationships.

Not even in my wildest dreams, would I ever think of being a children’s book author. Writing is just not my forte. I hope you will find this read enjoyable, maybe even a bit goose-bumpy, or ultimately inspiring! My story is about destiny; my inspiration for writing; pets changing lives; and literacy awareness. “An individual who does not challenge him/herself, struggles to flourish to their highest potential.” It took a karmic dog named Jamie for me to realize I was that individual. Through her experiences, I learned to challenge myself with every opportunity that comes along. Read more>>
