Grace Partners THINK THIS! Designs moving minds forward one design at a time Think This! Designs founder Nichole Christian inspires through her writing—whether it’s in a newspaper, poem, her t-shirts or cards. Her inspirational story in her own words: I would love to say my t-shirt brand, ThinkThis! was born of a grand design. No such luck. Necessity moved me. In 2009, my 20 year career as a journalist for some of the nation's top newspapers, including The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal and The Detroit Free Press disappeared before me, a casualty of cost cutting. The chorus around me said be sad, be angry, be anything but hopeful. Mounting bills and a bruised ego narrowly made me listen. I chose to hear a different voice, a more powerful one on the inside. The message: go do you, rekindle your creativity. Be sure to share the fruit. I don't know where this entrepreneurial odyssey will take me. But I'm led to believe, and to encourage others, anything is possible. I hope our products create a similar feeling for you. Your feedback is always welcomed. 10 % Discount on Think This!
