We live as if there are countless days ahead. We fail to seize the moment and grab the opportunities to enjoy life to the fullest — do the things that make our hearts smile, dance like no one is watching, or express how we really feel. It always seems that we will be able to do that ‘later’, when the only thing we have is now. There is so much power in this moment.

Stop Waiting 4 Friday is a lifestyle brand that aims to inspire, motivate, and help others live a bold, balanced, and present life. Through a series of tools, resources, and products our mission is to inspire to stop waiting and start living. Stop Waiting 4 Friday is cared for by Akia Merritt, who found herself constantly questioning life and all of its complexities and simplicities.


So she became a student of life— formally and informally.

Informally, traveling over 30 countries and being immersed in cultures, wisdom, and experiences that have deeply changed her life. 


Formally, along the journey discovering paths that lead her to hundreds of hours of accredited trainings.

She is passionate about what she likes to call “ A shortcut to living fully”. A commitment to guide people in discovering happiness in freedom in a simple, fun, and practical way to integrate into every day life. 


Get in! We're going on a crazy ride called life!
