Have you ever heard the phrase “past the point of no return”? It means that you’ve come so far, it’s easier to continue than to turn back. The phrase is used much more sparingly than it should be. Every moment of your life is past the point of no return. You’re not going to eventually end up back in the womb. All you can do is move forward in life, and the reason why is because wherever you’re at or whatever you do, you can’t turn back time.

Every single person is a unique puzzle composed of pieces of personality, life experiences, knowledge, and emotions. Every person has their own perspective and world view, largely fueled by the way they’ve experienced and navigated the world. Regardless of the exact path one’s life has taken, the journey leaves its mark on the person and shapes the way they interact with the world today.

Yves Bagaza says you were put on this earth at this exact time and place for a purpose. A purpose that only you can fulfill. And you can’t do it by being somebody else.We have all been brain washed by our parents and our teachers and even our friends, that we should act a certain way, look a certain way, talk a certain way. That’s all THEIR programming that they are dumping on to you. You don’t have to take it. Take what works for you and leave the rest behind.

Working with a creator, entertainer, or talent in today’s world comes with many limitations and bureaucracies. Nothing should get in the way of creators and talents taking on projects using their discretion or preference, but this is not so. The process of hiring a creator for a project takes too much time and steps. Yves Bagaza experienced this firsthand, and he wondered why nobody thought about making this process faster. He wanted to book one A-list artist to perform at one of his events, and it took three months to finalize the process. He also had to fly to another state to make it happen. This made no sense to Yves, and he swiftly began working on launching a platform that simplifies and makes things faster.

Utalan Inc. came to life to solve a problem, and so far, it’s one of the proudest achievements for Yves Bagaza. As an African refugee, Yves never let his background and situation get in the way of his dreams.
