TALONYA GEARY

When I was eight years old, I quickly realized that I was an entrepreneur (and #goDoer) after I convinced my older brother to start our first business together. 

This experience shaped my identity and gave me a taste of how you can create something of value when you combine a vision of service with action. 

Since then, I have started and grown multiple businesses ranging from passion projects to multi-platform companies. Today, I'm committed to building social enterprises that help people learn, live lives with purpose, and leader others to do good.

My blueprint: Life is short, #goDo what you love.

RYAN ESPINOSA

Raised in an entrepreneurial family, I have built and created businesses for most of my life in design, real estate and art.  

 

A socially driven activist at heart and in the street, I’m committed to promoting and supporting our LGBT community, our global community and our planet.

Surrounding myself with mentors and coaches has helped me create a stronger personal foundation, provided growth opportunities and guidance during both triumphant and challenging times.  

My dream is to bring these resources to more people in our community, to become stronger and more powerful together and to have some fun while doing it.

My blueprint: Do the things I love, and help others do the same.
