This week’s radio show was inspired by my wife Julia’s high school yearbook page. For her senior year, each student was given a page to say or display whatever they wanted. Julia chose to fill hers with rows and rows of tiny, but neat, handwriting that named all of the people, places and things she wanted to thank. When I first saw that page in person, I was almost brought to tears. There was such a sense of excitement, passion, gratitude and possibility that it made me start to think about all of the people and things that have inspired me most in my life – professionally and personally.
Since this week’s show fell so close to Valentine’s Day, I thought it was a chance to take a moment to pause, reflect and thank all of the people, publications, applications and innovations that have inspired me endlessly over the past few years. From my favorite magazines and apps to strong women, innovative businesses and new business startups, this is my very personal list of daily inspirations. Whether you’re a new business, a seasoned pro or just someone who’s looking for trusted recommendations that are guaranteed to be helpful and inspirational, this show is full of ideas for everyone. It was so nice to take a moment and thank all of the talented people who have inspired not just this business, but the artists we love and celebrate here.
In the spirit of Valentine’s Day, please feel free to leave your own love letter to the people and things that inspire you. I’m sure we would all love to hear of a few new people, places or great ideas. xo, grace
