One important lesson that I've learned from being a quirky creative is how important it is to surround yourself with like-minded individuals. It is also important to support other creative entrepreneurs in their endeavors. Therefore, Quirky, Brown Love has curated a short list of quirky creatives that we definitely think you should know about.
These entrepreneurs have taken the leap of faith and are reaching further to own their purpose in life in their own creative ways. Check them out!

A spoken word artist draws his inspiration from his faith. Using his unique ability to lace together words, he has managed to elevate his career and to inspire others to improve their spiritual journey. On top of being an excellent poet, he is the founder of Left Roasters a collective community of creative geniuses who love coffee. This community rallies together and stirs up their creativity to ensure coffee drinkers a healthy dose of awesomeness (and by awesomeness, I mean coffee).
