“What’s in a name? That which we call a rose by any other name would smell as sweet”, says poet William Shakespeare. In other words Shakespeare is asking the reader wouldn’t a rose still be sweet regardless to what you called it?’
Yet the poetic King Solomon ,who penned the book of Proverbs lets us know that “A good name is more desirable than great riches and to be esteemed is better than silver or gold.” (Prov. 22:1) So which is it? Or can both be true?

Just because the world may not know your name… yet… or because your name does not appear in lights does not mean you have nothing of substance to offer; quite the contrary!
