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 microbraid 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.
