Just because someone gives critique doesn’t mean you have to take it. And sometimes, you need to be open to critique. Always follow your gut. Only you truly understand your vision.

I am so sad to make this post at the beginning of the year. But sometimes unfortunate things happen. I am working on a resolution ASAP! Stay tuned... ...

On the first Monday of the new year take a moment to reflect and celebrate all that you achieved last year. I know sometimes it’s hard to feel accomplished while juggling multiple balls. But taking one step forward (no matter how small) will always be better then taking no steps at all. Congrats on getting to where you are right now. Be present in this moment and be grateful.

This has been quite the year! But despite the madness there were some happy moments that I am proud to celebrate. Thank you to everyone (the tagged and those that aren’t tagged) who made this year special. Cheers to another 355 days of new journeys and mountains to conquer. 🥂

Kwanza is a seven-day non-religious holiday observed in the US, meant to honor African Americans' ancestral roots. This year the celebration lasts from December 26th until January 1st. The name comes from the Swahili phrase "matunda ya kwanza," which means "first fruits."
The holiday is defined by Nguzo Saba, or the seven principles. Each day of the festival is dedicated to a specific principle, marked by lighting a new candle on the kinara, a seven-branched candelabra. The seven principles are:

Umoja - Unity

Kujichagulia - Self-determination

Ujima - Collective work and responsibility

Ujamaa - Cooperative economics

Nia - Purpose.

Kuumba - Creativity

Karenga - Faith in community

Testimonials

Sip & Share Wines

Shades of Commerce walks the talk of support and collaboration! They used their social platforms and influence to promote our winery and even did a social media push for our Wines for Mother's Day!! All because they believe in circulating Black dollars in Black communities! They've also put their money behind their message by purchasing our wines for themselves! Their continued encouragement, support in sharing and being a true partner in economic growth and unity is outstandingly phenomenal!! We, at Sip & Share Wines, are abundantly grateful!

All Access Golf

Tiffany has been a great supporter for All Access Golf. She has attended our events which allowed her to learn about the golf industry and network with those in it. Tiffany’s presence also adds value. Her exposure to various industries makes her a resource for our event attendees.

Absolute Coffee

Shades of Commerce has been a great collaborative partner both in the community and online. Tiffany has worked arduously to promote my business by serving our local fire department breakfast and coffee bought from my store. Additionally, Tiffany is kind enough to share posts and information of my store with her Instagram followers. It has been a real pleasure to work with someone so dedicated to local businesses and the neighborhood supporting them.
