Creating a feed of people and companies who are writing for our benefit. People whose sole goal is to add value to their readership and create a life worth sharing.

They are engaging with their readership, honest, transparent, and delivering a message worth spreading.

Jefferson has become a powerhouse. Missing out on his teachings will be a huge mistake. He is a future father of the faith and a current trail blazer in the social media driven world we live in.
