Genius Is Common

Welcome to the Genius is Common



"The Genius is CommonTM Movement is about tearing down the Berlin Wall of the word genius." Be inspired - Be engaged - Be empowered...


“Genius is CommonTM means that all beings have a genius in them.

Genius manifests itself through each being’s own unique way of expressing their passion, be it their profession, their art, their talent.


A woman from the inner city who knows how to micro braid hair like Picasso painted that's her talent; her skill and genius.


Positioned to become a part of the American lexicon like Nike’s “Just Do It” and Sprite’s “Obey your thirst, “Genius is CommonTM in just a few words levels the playing field of who is traditionally thought to be a genius.
