Fly With High Standards

“The quality of your life will be determined by the depth of your commitment to excellence more than by any other factor” –Vince Lombardi
Strive today to be better than you were yesterday. Everyone has the potential to achieve excellence if you recognize your inner potential and fuel the flames of your desires. Excellence is a state of mind, rooted in an unwavering decision not to lower the bar and settle. It requires commitment; 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The commitment is simple – demanding more of yourself.
Excellence is never an accident; it’s always the result of high intent and high standards of oneself.

Kids and Dry Scalp

Water + Revitalizing Leave-In Conditioner + Nourish & Shine or Scalp Serum
= Happy Kids and Healthy Scalp
Children suffer from dry scalp just like mom and dad. The fix is easy. Mist hair and scalp with water (remember: water = moisture), spritz on Revitalizing Leave-In Conditioner, then apply Nourish & Shine (or Scalp Nourishing Serum) to scalp to retain the moisture. If their hair is in cornrows, make sure to regularly rehydrate the hair and scalp.


You’ll have happy kids with a healthy scalp and no more itchy, dry, flaking!


Everyone is happy!

Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway!

don't quit

"Fearlessness is not the absence of fear. It’s being able to embrace our fear…and then to leap anyway.”

Fear is an instinct built into the human operating system. It is there as a primal instinct to tell us we need to respond to a situation to protect ourselves. Most of us respond to the uncomfortable feeling of fear by retreating, by becoming reasonable, or by running away when in fact there is not really any threat at all.

In doing that, we often lose the opportunity to grow and learn to embrace the feeling of fear and ‘do it anyway”. If we could just learn to reprogram our thoughts and ask ourselves what is there really to be afraid of? Is there a physical threat here? What’s the worst that can happen? We can then circumvent that uncomfortable emotional response and move towards the thing, object or event that scares us the most. Then and only then can we acknowledge that fear is a primal instinct not always grounded in reality.

There is always victory on the other side of discomfort if you are willing to walk through the emotion.
