I am a dreamer, not a realist. I don’t like to think that there are actually mean people in this world doing mean things to others.
I like to believe that everyone has a golden heart full of everlasting love and true kindness. I like to think that but ya… I know there are some evil humans out there and I HATE that. I really hate reading depressing article after article in the news about killings and racism. I especially hate stories that make me say, “How can someone do that?” I want to do something simple…I want to change the world and make it a happy place to live! I don’t think it’s too much to ask J
So I started KALLI VIBES, a lifestyle company promoting people that do good for them selves and do good for others. I want to shine light on those who are doing those GOOD THINGS we all need to do.
KALLI VIBES is actually my second company. KalliRaes clothing was my first baby started in 2010. I designed, hand sewed, marketed, and sold my clothing line . I truly loved it; I love creating and making unique pieces for my KALLI GIRLS to ware for festivals or a night out on the town! But I needed something more, I wanted to start a company with a meaning behind it. Like I said I wanted to change the world…that’s when KALLI VIBES was born.
I am leaving the KALLI VIBE’S mark in my community by literally getting out in my community and the social network world to making connections with those living the KALLI VIBE. I interview him/her/them for my company and promote the GOOD VIBES to my fans and my followers. I show them the goodness the company or person is doing and that YOU can do it too.
And when I say YOU I mean it. Yes ALL of you can make a positive impact in the world, it just starts with you actually getting out of bed and doing it! Every idea is a big idea because even the littlest things you do can make the plant smile.
I am so lucky to have had the greatest mentors to grow up with, my mom and my dad. The two best souls and both leaders amongst our family, their friends, and all the others they have touched through out life. Every part of me wants to be like them and preach the personal development they taught me about kindness and love. Along with the rents I have SO many other leaders I look up too and strive to be like; Sophia Amoruso of Nasty Gal, Blake Mycoskie of TOMS, Stevie Wonder, and many more.
I just want to say thank you to YXU for promoting young leaders leading in a positive way. They were sparked by a simple question:
"Why not you?"
I can only answer that question if the NOT wasn’t there. So now you ask, “Why me?” Me because I know I cant go wrong promoting a lifestyle filled with love and kindness. I can only try my hardest to change the world and have everyone living the KALLI VIBE. Most importantly I know I can’t fail and neither can you. Go be a leader #WEGOTNEXT
