Meet the Founder

Hi there! My name's Ciera Payton

and The In Trive is a collaborative and artistic lifestyle platform for individuals like you to find your Inspired Thriving Tribe.

I’m an actress, entrepreneur, philanthropist, and so much more. When I first shared my story in my one-woman performance Michael’s Daughter, I was overwhelmed by the number of people who expressed how visible my story made them feel.

It was powerful seeing how sharing my story and being vulnerable on stage allowed me to connect with a wide audience of supporters, viewers, friends, and family. That’s when I had my light bulb or “Ah-Ha” Oprah moment.

Why not curate an inclusive community that does more than just inspire those who want to be a part of the creative industry? How can I create a space, a community, a cadre of artists, dreamers, creative entrepreneurs where they are encouraged to thrive and light a spark in this world?

With these questions, I was encouraged to pursue The In Trive to do just that. I thought about unrecognized voices that have to work a lot harder to find opportunities in many creative spaces.

So it made more sense to me to have a platform with access to courses, mentors, and experts from an insider perspective.

The In Trive is all about being authentic, bringing joy, and safety to those who are unfamiliar with the industry or those who would like a refresher.

I aim to empower stories. Dive into deep discussions. Emphasize the importance of a healthy life and overall wellness. And reach a community of like-minded creatives with the same thriving mindset.

So, if you’re looking for resourceful blog posts, podcasts, and personal article entries to inspire you on your creative journey, you’re in the right place.

We are The In Trive. The Inspired Thriving Tribe. Welcome!

With Love,


We aim to cultivate and amplify all creative mediums by providing engaging and motivating content that helps empower all creatives to elevate their artistic voices.


Every creative has been inspired in some way to use their voice, share their story, and present their art. We want to be that inspiring catalyst for our community and empower them to also aspire to inspire their families, their communities, and the world at large.


By offering motivating content, resources, courses, and events, our goal is to nurture a community where artists and creatives can join together and create a positive spark that will illuminate the world.


Our community thrives regardless of one's background, race, gender, or religion. Our content sheds light on things, places, and people by presenting new perspectives that aim to create a thriving community.


We find joy in being true to our personality, values, and spirit. We believe that being authentic is the only way to cultivate meaningful, thriving connections. When we're honest with ourselves, others, while being receptive to new perspectives, only then can we truly make a positive impact.


When we create, we make sure to be intentional about our work, messaging, and how our voice impacts each observer of the work. Being an intentional creative community allows our audience to be inspired in profound and uplifting ways.
