Top Picks Tuesday

Welcome to our #tpt series, featuring four favorite discoveries or inspirations from the last week. This week's picks come from Olja Ivanic, isplack's International Celebrator, a Croatian native who calls the world her home, and instantly everyone's best friend.



  • PERSON: Beyoncé. Besides being an incredible entertainer and performer, she is a true entrepreneur and businesswoman who has built an empire. One of my favorite quotes is, "You have the same amount of hours in a day as Beyoncé." Ellen, Tina Fey, Michelle Obama, and Elizabeth Warren are all my close seconds as they each have made tremendous movements in their areas (from comedy to social work) and are incredible role models to girls all around the world. 
  • PRODUCT: isplack of course! How incredible is it to be able to Get Your Colors On from your favorite sports team to the cause you are most passionate about? United in color, united in isplack - all day, every day!
  • CONCEPT: Ridiculous Love. I believe that God has ridiculous love for all of us and each of us and that we need to show this kind of love to all that we meet. Love always wins! 
  • BOOK: Too many to pick for this ADD mind! Man's Search for Meaning by Viktor Frankl will probably always be in my Top 3. He speaks of surviving the Holocaust and how he was able to do so with a mindset of "the only freedom we have is to choose how we react to our circumstances." No matter how terrible things may become in our lives, our minds can overcome the physical and we can survive and surpass the darkness. You Are A Badass and The Road Less Traveled are two of my favorites to re-read and find motivation and inspiration in. I truly believe we can do anything we set our minds to!




Thanks for sharing your inspiration with us, Olja!
