The Year of Completion: Who’s on your team in 2017?

The Year of Completion: Who’s on your team in 2017?

Happy New Year!

You made it.  Let’s celebrate that first. You are able to enjoy this beautiful Monday morning with me, and that’s something to rejoice about.

Now. It’s 2017.  I know, I know, you are tired of hearing new goals, new year.  I am too.  Especially if these are goals that you have no intentions of executing.  Don’t play yourself this year.  It’s all about action.  I glanced at my dry erase board, and my vision board from last year and thought what didn’t I do last year that I can change for this year?




I can go on, and on.  Last year was my year to plan, network, build relationships, etc in order to prepare for everything that is coming my way this year.

It was important for me to evaluate the position I want to play this year, and who’s on my team.

It’s impossible to move forward without a team.  I can’t do all of this by myself.  So, as the brand grows, you must expand.  It’s scary, but oh so exciting.

The second book in the Adventures of Alleykats series will premiere this year, so I will definitely keep you updated on that.  Plus, more behind the scenes, stories, and sneak peeks for the Final 48 Project documentary/photography campaign.





Let’s just say, 2017 is about to be EVERYTHING!

The number 7 represents completion, so let’s get some ISH done this year.  You ready?

Day 30: COMPLETION (Freestyle) #SteeleThankful Challenge

Day 30: COMPLETION (Freestyle) #SteeleThankful Challenge


You all have inspired, encouraged, and pushed me to complete this challenge with you.  I didn’t give up because of your love!  You held me accountable to post for 30 days about what I am #SteeleThankful for.

So much happened this month.  I started a new career.  I moved out of the storage place, and settling in my new crib.  This whole month has been preparing me for this moment.


My first book is now a year old.  I released it on Cyber Monday last year and I haven’t looked back.  I completed an interview that will be published on a well known blog in February, and some amazing things such as this feature that I came across yesterday:

Center for Documentary Studies at Duke University

I was blown away.  That program has supported me in ways unimaginable.  I’m #SteeleThankful for my CDS at Duke family.

The main takeaway from this experience is that when you commit to something it’s important to follow through.  I was committed to bringing you content, and allowing you to think about what you’re truly thankful for.  I’m excited about completing this month of #SteeleThankful and preparing for the next chapter that begins tomorrow.  For the last time in November 2016, I will ask.

What are you #SteeleThankful for?

Be prepared the challenge for next year will be EPIC!
