Bryant & Jenni — A True Love Story

The co-creators of McGill Media — a couple on a mission to inspire and uplift...

McGill Media and Simple Reminders is a creation of love, and hand-built homestead to thought-leaders, Bryant McGill & Jenni Young McGill — a couple on a mission to inspire and uplift, with daily empowering messages and soulful sharing. Their writings, videos, photography, and messages reach over a billion people every year. (Video)

Bryant and Jenni met in Hollywood and have been full-time, creative entrepreneurs for over 17 years. They joined hands and hearts on Bryant’s birthday, and haven’t been separated since. Working and playing together every day , they built a world-wide mission and ministry of love, to remind people of the things they already deeply know, but sometimes — simply need a reminder to remember.

Hand in hand, and side-by-side, they create, share, and live a life of service, creativity — and magic.

“We always believed that if you are in harmony with your soulmate and on your true mission of purpose, that life will reveal to you, and carry you to your highest destiny.”

Childhood photos of Bryant and Jenni at the same age.

Bryant grew-up in Alabama, and Jenni in Georgia. Born the same year, Jenni and Bryant were both spiritually curious, and interested in writing and photography since they were children. They had been wishing for each-other their whole lives…

THE EARLY DAYS…

It’s a real-life Hollywood story of a powerful calling and devotion to each other, that inspires their life work. When they met in Hollywood at the Cafe Solar, Bryant was an author and photographer, and Jenni was a film producer and photographer. Each successful in their own areas, their combined passions took their dreams to a whole new level.

“We struggled and sacrificed for our art. We didn't have much, but we had each other — and we had a shared dream; the dream of letting the power of art, images, and words flow through us to help others see the beauty we saw through the lens of our love.”

17 years after founding McGill InternationalJenni and Bryant founded Simple Reminders in 2010, as a way to share their daily inspiration, creativity, photography, writings, and passion for life with the world, and to inspire others without charge.

HOLLYWOOD LIFE…

Like many creative people in Hollywood, and around the world, we wanted to know, “Can you really do what you love and make money, without compromising your vision?”

Proof that the American dream is still alive and well, we built our vision on two smartphones and cameras, a few laptops, and a sincere desire to show people the best of themselves through inspiring words, stories, and images. With a few tools, and hearts of faith, we built everything from the ground up by simply caring.

“Big dreams, big hearts, and small steps led us on a journey that would change our lives forever.”

We pursued with full faith the dream, that if you do what you love, in service of others, that passion rewards everyone! Twelve months earlier we had created — a manifesting check — for our vision board, where both of us, and our three girls — kissed it, signed it, and we sang, 🌟 “when you wish upon a star” 🌟 together.❤

We received our first magical monthly check for our co-creation after many years of self-development, inner-work, service work, and always, always — paying it forward.

McGill Media and Simple Reminders is our love child.

Then we created a small holding company, and wrote a bill of sale for $2 — a magical two-dollar bill that we treasure to this day. Now funded, we began to expand our vision and dream, and not only our dreams — but the dreams of others.

With the money flowing we did what any writer shutterbugs would do — we bought GEAR! We started investing in tools, ideas, creativity, experiences — and people.

Travel, writing, photography, and cappuccinos — need we say more?

Every destination has a sentence or two for the next book, and so many great photos too. We set out into the world to see and learn a few things.

Together, we have had many experiences — Tokyo, France, Italy, England, Thailand, Brazil, Hawaii, Germany, Austria, Mexico, The Bahamas, Canada, and here-and-there all over the great American States. Culture speaks deeply to us, and we love to share what we hear and learn.

Our new lifestyle afforded us the dream life — an opportunity to work from home and live anywhere in the world, and we found ourselves in some really amazing places.

LAGUNA BEACH LIFE…

Laguna Beach enriched our lives with stunning views of the ocean all the way to Catalina. Just steps away from the beach, we spent countless hours and treasured family time on our private beach at Shaws Cove. Oh… the sunsets, the dolphins, and the sounds of the roaring ocean. We still miss our mountain hikes right out our back door…

Bryant and Scottlynn 

Laguna was our playground for touching a deeper space of our creative endeavor, and sharing it with the world.

OJAI LIFE…

Ojai was a center of peace and inner-work. With stunning landscapes, we enjoyed the live art of our spectacular canyon vista, and ate from the myriad fruit trees in our back yard. From the farmer’s markets, to the essence of Krishnamurti’s legacy upon the valley, and the reverent hilltop intentions that silently rang over the lands from meditation mount — we grew in strength and peaceful centeredness in Ojai. With regular trips to the Santa Barbara coast, our life was full of every imaginable beauty.

PALM SPRINGS LIFE…

If you love our work, it’s because you discovered a hint of what we found in the desert. From Joshua Tree starscapes, to our palm laden home in La Quinta — when we were not making our videos or shooting photos, we pretty much lived in our saltwater pool. There is not enough “film” or memory cards, to shoot the desert in all its grand diversity!

“The desert nights feel like a second skin, and the rustle of the palms under those crazy stars served as our loyal muse.”

Our desert life was the backdrop of so many family memories, and our venture into new forms of media, writing, and creating.

AUSTIN LIFE…

Austin has been a fun stop on our roundabout, like a Portlandia with a strong sip of Don’t Mess with Texas. We love boots, music, and technology, so Austin tops the charts for those. Advertisers afforded us a remarkable city skyline view, beautiful riverside sunsets, city nightlife, and endless live music. In Austin, we dove into international community building, and connecting with fans and friends around the world in ways we had never before imagined.

“The gift of Austin is the heart of treasured royal relationships around the globe, that we will take with us for the rest of our lives.”

Austin came with technical and business challenges that made us wiser and served as a springboard to greater opportunities, that we are now embracing.

EVENT LIFE…

Social entrepreneurship, leadership, and hope for a better world…

“For us, entrepreneurship is a place where imagination and creativity become meaningful forms of value in our lives, and in the lives of others.”

We are privileged and blessed to be able to travel, lecture, teach workshops, and participate at high levels in social leadership initiatives that we believe serve a higher purpose, and the dignity of others.

PUBLIC LIFE…

Our international visibility has been a stage for outreach and support, not for mere money making, but for truly building people and filling them with courage and new ideas and possibilities. We believe in people, and have seen miracles arise from the power of words, faith, kindness, and community. No matter how public it gets, we are really simple people who enjoy family, music, writing, and using our gifts to serve others. We are foolish enough to believe our love can make the world a better place, and that’s the goal… has been from day one.

“No time is better spent than that spent in the service of your fellow man.”

HEALTHY LIFE…

Health discovery has been an important part of our mission together. Life without your health can be unbearable! We are very sensitive and empathetic to this issue. We know intimately the deep struggles and perseverance it takes to reclaim your health, because we have been there.

Wonder-twin powers Activate!

We have learned that your well-being is the platform from which you serve others. Your personal health is your greatest possession; the most significant foundation of any future you will have.

“We love sharing what we have learned about inner well-being and outer well-being with others.”

Jenni on our mountain hike in Laguna… Life is a practice. You are what you do each day!

We are on a mission of the heart — to bring empowering and positive messages to those in need! Jenni and I love what we do! We are living our dream life daily with passion. We are in love with life and truly enjoy sharing the beauty we encounter daily with all of you.

“We love to travel the world and meet with interesting people, artists, business leaders, and creative achievers.”

NEXT STOP…

Miami? South of France? A few months in Europe?

Our work calls us to many destinations, and our life continues to bring us rich blessings for growth, new adventures and friendships, and a deeper sharing of the things that have rooted us in service from the moment we began our mission of love together.

Who knows where you will find us next. But we know one thing for sure, that inspiration will be guiding our steps, like it always has, and we appreciate each and every one of you around the world — our family of good-spirited kindred souls, who still believe good things are possible in the world.

Let love take you places!

For 17 years we have served our world-wide audiences and communities for free with our blogs, writings, speaking, and creative media outreach. We are looking forward the next exciting chapter that life has in store for us all, and we have some exciting news to share with you soon…

To every underdog with a dream — you can do it!

Firstly I would like to thank you very much for sharing your wisdom, knowledge and thoughts in such an accessible way for others. It shows that you see value in helping others without the need to profit from them, which allows your readers to have confidence in your beliefs, and also that you practice what you preach. Another reason I am thankful for this is that a few years ago I had a profound shift in my way of thinking which changed my life enormously in a positive way (thanks to the help of my wonderful psychologist), since then I have been passionate about promoting self-awareness and encouraging people to challenge their own beliefs and ways of thinking.
However, until I discovered your pages and books, I found it extremely difficult to find quotes, sayings or writings that I thought would be helpful in assisting me to convey what I wanted to convey. In fact I felt a lot of the ones I came across that were intended to validate and promote positive thoughts also had the potential to validate and promote self-limiting beliefs. What was the vital thing missing for me to be comfortable in sharing many of them? They were unlikely to cause someone to think, or start a discussion with friends about it. Without that element I feel that it does not promote change, but rather acts as a form of validation for a belief that the reader already holds.
So thank you for providing such important material which I feel will have the greatest potential to positively impact many lives and which I can see already has done so. And thanks for assisting me with my passion by allowing me to share your words with others.

One final thing, I’m curious as to why you are frustrated with the inability to respond to nearly every comment? I think that this post is somewhat a response in itself to all past present and future comments anyway, but I don’t think its necessary for you to respond to all even if it were possible, it assumes that it should be a 2-way relationship… I’m not sure if you realise this, but you have created something even more magical than that. What you have created is a relationship between many people who help each other change the way they think by discussing their views and opinions to the questions you ask. That alone is mind blowing, and a testament to your work!

I am a fairly new reader, and watcher of 2 of your super inspired videos. I just want you to know, standing in my truth, I’m pretty sure that’s how you put it, was scary, and amazing. Kind of like a roller-coaster, scary, but worth it! Ever since then, actually it’s kinda ongoing, God has changed my situation, and that of my family. All of these changes were not with out some difficulty, but with all with that has happened the last few weeks, I have hope in my heart, REAL HOPE, and FAITH again!!!

Teresa Collins-Atkinson

I know it would be too difficult to respond to every post, but I think it is cool that you want to! Keep up the great work, and thank you for the beautiful wisdom! 🙂

I have been reading your posts not that long. But that very moment I’ve read it, I was instantly feel encouraged by your words. I feel the magic of hope. Life may be really tough and hard sometimes but I believe that God is near and whatever problems I may interfere, I know I can do it with the grace of our God. Thank you for those words that gives impact in my heart. <3 God bless Mr. Bryant McGill for inspiring me. May you have more lives to changed through this simple but amazing way of giving courage to people.

Thank you Mr. Bryant McGill, you always encouraged us to think a positive thoughts..

Kerri Drury

It surely is a two way relationship, a connection -he can respond or not, that doesn’t change that. I agree with you it’s not necessary. If I really really believe and understand that, and not indulge my ego which may be hurt by no personal response, that is invaluable for me. That I realize I don’t NEED him to. It helped me to see that, I needed to see that, feel that, believe it. At one time, and still at times, I would feel hurt. Now I’m grateful for what it taught me and for the space it opened up for me to be able to be even more open to truth. Not the story that says no one cares, see you’re not worth the time. No. Not evidence for that story. I am already ok in truth and I don’t need the constant validation I once did. Believing I am not enough, not worthy is as arrogant as the people who believe they are better and so at times I believed that too. Anyway, I am certain that all I know is in question, it feels like shit, but I keep on because somewhere in me I know it is for me. FOR. Just by reading your post I know you already know. I guess I wouldn’t be responding otherwise. Thanks so much <3

I appreciate the fact you not only read the comments and want it to not just be a one way relationship, but open a line of communication because most artists on social media I feel use the platform as an ego boost and barely, if ever, reply. I’ve never been a fan of non-interaction. I mean, what’s the whole point of social media? Essentially to swap intellectual information. So, I’m in total agreement with you and respect your willingness to use social, SOCIAL being the freakin’ key word in the title, media in the most respectable manor towards the followers of your page.
