I have had a little over a year to really incubate my business from a baby to something with diverse offerings that create value for users/subscribers. It was a humble side project in the beginning, then it started to take over my heart a bit, and eventually I was runn...

I cannot think of another time during my lifetime when labels mattered quite as much as they do now. As our world does the best it can at being progressive with the embrace of people of all colors, orientations, sizes, ages, and so on, more and more groups are compelle...
