"Supporting women is everything to me. I love working with, partnering with and collaborating with other female owned businesses. When we support each other we are stronger. Everyday I’m inspired by the strong rural women in Northern Ghana who process all of the raw ingredients that R&R uses in product formulations.

How Jean Nicole Rivers is Empowering Writers Through Innovative Technology!

"Writing a novel is all about continuity. If you do not keep pristine cohesiveness throughout your story, you will lose your reader quickly. The details can be endless; memories, names, settings, habits, lies, themes, ages, years, etc. The better you can manage the many details of the story, the more layered and complex you can make your novel, which is a great way to keep your reader engaged"

The most successful people/businesses take their time to develop and build one thing before deciding to introduce new features/new products and services etc. Take time to work and develop and build your core focus to the point where its sustainable before you decide do another thing"
