It’s finally almost here! The 5th Issue of STEELE Magazine will drop in just a mere 3 days on Monday February 4th, 2019. Fitting that I’d kick off New York Fashion Week by publishing my very own magazine! This issue was a long time coming. I usually publish the digital magazine between Jan 1st-4th. Here we are a whole month behind that schedule but I needed that time. Before this issue, I was working a full-time 9-5 job as a Physical Therapist while also blogging. I’d usually neglect my blog from October to December every year to focus on STEELE Magazine. Funnily enough just as I began the real grunt work of creating, I was fired/quit my 9-5 and was thrust, rather unexpectedly into entrepreneurship. I no longer had the luxury of scaling back from blogging for two months to focus on my passion project. I had to keep blogging consistently in order to keep money steadily coming in.

Thankfully, I have an amazing team. I knew I needed help this time especially with designing the magazine. I practically went blind last year when putting together the Travel + Wellness Issue. yes that might sound a little dramatic but I’m not even kidding. My right eye no longer dilates properly and I now have to wear prescription glasses during all computer work. Anywho, luckily a few months before my transition into Full-Time Blogging, I enlisted the help of my good friend Nailah Ali. She’s been my saving grace for this issue. To be honest I haven’t even seen the full magazine! I left all the creative direction to her. But from what I have seen, I KNOW THAT IT’S DOPE! I love that I have the freedom to focus on writing and leave the designing up to a professional. Whew, I’m getting hyped just thinking about it. Oh yeah, did you notice the magazine has a name change? We’re now simply called STEELE Magazine.
Speaking of print, this issue will be our FIRST EVER PRINT ISSUE!!! I thought the 5th issue deserved to be in print. You all have been asking for a print version for 2 years and now I finally have the time and the means to commit to that demand. It was my dream as a kid to write for a magazine. Many times over the years I’ve pitched articles and stories to some of my favorite publications only to be turned down or never hear back. I got so fed up with it that I said fxck it and created my own magazine, where I could tell the stories that resonated with me. I’m so thankful for this moment. It’s truly a dream realized and I never could have done it without the love and support of my family, friends and you. If you love this blog, I know you’re gonna love STEELE Magazine. I appreciate all of your support with the magazine these last 5 years! Here’s a few more details on what’s to come when STEELE Magazine is published.
