I enjoy writing for a myriad of reasons. Whereas I strongly believe that a weakness should be managed like a chronic disease, a strength must be harnessed, accentuated and focused on. I came to the conclusion years ago that my writing skill will connect me with people with the speed of light. I’ve been able to reach places and persons of different shades and colors, from diverse persuasions and creed, and around the globe in a space of time unimaginable by the power of the keyboard and the Internet as an enabler. Writing is my connection to the world, but sometimes writing is for just me.

I am not necessarily an inventive person. I don’t often come up with original ideas on my own. If someone points me in a direction, I can be incredibly creative in building upon that idea. Bring me an idea for a new software program and I can take that idea and build very creative solutions for implementation. I say this as an introduction to the third tenet of our mantra, create.
Creation is more than coming up with original ideas or inventions. It is taking a seed and planting it, nurturing it and growing it into something real and tangible. The concept of creation builds upon the first 2 tenets of consuming and collaborating. The YourKnow founder, Raefer Andrews, is always coming up with some new inventive idea. They flow from him on an almost daily basis. Put him together with our other founder, Alfred Adams, and they just feed off of each other. Actually creating something from those ideas requires a team to execute that vision. We consume information which leads to new ideas. Then we collaborate on those ideas to determine the path forward. Finally, we create something from the ideas.
YourKnow facilitates this by bringing together people across social, racial, religious, gender and age groups with a common topic to create something that wasn’t there before. You don’t have to be an expert in all of the nuances of the topic at hand, you just need to start or join a group that focuses on the things you are passionate about and contribute. This creates new content for others to consume and feeds more ideas and constantly perpetuates the process.
There are the thinkers and there are the doers and together they build something greater than either of them can build alone.
