What is Inspiration? Inspiration is: Being brave enough to speak about topics that are being brushed under the carpet; Giving people a platform to have their voice heard; Being willing to ask the difficult question; Challenging authority for what you know to be the best outcome; Speaking your mind when many would rather you didn’t; […]

As a baby there was one thing you were passionate about. That was the desire to live. You were inspirational in how you pursued your passion. Hungry? You shouted the roof down until you got food. Sleep? You let it be known to all that you wanted rest. * And here’s the mad thing. You […]

Today is your day. It’s there for you. The only question you have to ask yourself and answer is: What am I going to do today to make this my day? * All the days that have come before today are gone. They are in the past. What tomorrow brings is tomorrow’s business. The day […]

Not in a ‘I-check-myself-in-the-mirror-regularly-to-make-sure-I’m-looking-good’ kind of way. More like, Des is a fan of sticking to the basics that he knows keeps him feeling […]
