The 8 types of people you need in your squad, part I

This week is Thanksgiving in the US, so in the spirit of thankfulness, I would like to give a  HUGE thank you to all of you and my personal friends.

Friendship is one of the most valuable treasures we have in this world. I value friendships as if it’s my last day on earth.

In my short time on this planet, I have learned there are friends for tea, friends to cry on their shoulder when your heart is shattered into a million pieces or shopping. I like to call the shopping friend a fringe friend because they are not a Rider. There’s nothing wrong with them it’s just that they are not capable of helping a girl out at 4am.

Here’s a list of people you need in your squad:


Producers are amazing at lighting your goals on fire. They help you find the tools necessary to help you attain the desired result no matter how high of a task and they are generous with their time. They know your strengths and use them for you to succeed in business.


They defend you when another person puts you down without your presence. They will continuously spread their love for you to others. They love you unconditionally, loyal, and nonjudgmental. They get high watching you succeed. These are the friends that believe in you no matter what life throws at you.

This is your bestie that you share the same love for fashion movies, sports, hobbies, movies, music, spirituality, food, blogs, and books. This is the friend that you can speak for endless hours about nothing yet you end the chat with love and a zest for life. She/he will not be afraid to put a cape on if you need to go out in the middle of the night to spy on your ex.


A friend that will not shy away from any event wherever you need their help. These people without question will roll up their sleeves and dig a grave with you. Your unbreakable bond is industrial strength. You are telepathically connected. A Rider’s sacrifice to the friendship holds no bounds. This is a person who will take a bullet for you, or bail you out of jail.

I like to keep the posts short because this is a blog not a novel.

Stay tuned for tomorrow’s part II post.
