This week spotlight is on Philly’s own Mike Reid. Just Mike is a poet, author and speaker- 2 self-published poetry books “Just Words”, “Just Words 2” and “Dear Woman” with 136,000 people following him. Through his poetry he plans to spread peace, love and inspiration on a global level. His poetry speaks on relationships, expectations and self-worth.
Reid has a “Dear Women” segment, where he speaks to his women followers directly that is meant to uplift and encourage them to have confidence in self and what they bring to the table, to exercise patience, but also to be accountable for decisions made and understand that you have personal power.
Mike is definitely on the move; he has participated in an international “Just Words” Tour that has been in dozens of cities around the globe, he performs his spoken word/poetry in colleges, theaters and local poetry venues; he also has a workshop “90 Minutes with Mike”. To find out more, check out justmikethepoet.com. His natural gift to write/speak fluently, eloquently, honestly with a dash of real- keeps me checking to see what new message he has to share. Keep “inspiring the individuals, one word at a time.”
