Promoting Positive Change Through Information, Inspiration and Implementation
If you’ve been looking for an interactive, exciting lifestyle magazine, you’re in luck. Meet Maurice Hamilton, the multi-talented, visionary CEO and Publisher of i2i Media Group, the driving force behind the enormously popular Insight2Incite Monthly and the i2i Live Show.
About the Magazine
This hybrid magazine is Maurice’s brainchild. “We call it Insight2Incite because it promotes positive change through information, inspiration, and implementation,” Maurice explains. “Words and actions can be powerful motivators. We accept the word ‘Insight,’ to be understanding the true nature of something, while ‘Incite’ is to urge to action – and we promote positive action.
Insight2Incite Monthly is a fully interactive lifestyle hybrid publication that brings you i2i with everything happening in your city. Unique in its look we have taken the most dominant parts of a magazine and made it special, and with the use of QR codes, readers can enter directly into the world of our advertisers and writers.
“Our goal is to consistently publish relevant and thought provoking information. It is ultimately a vehicle designed to cover a wide variety of topics: socially, politically, spiritually, physically, and economically. While introducing you to very interesting people, new businesses, and unsung heroes.
About the Show
The i2i Live Show, is an interactive talk show that brings you i to i with everything that is your city. Experience the metropolitan area like you never seen before. Get Informed with thought provoking topics, Be Inspired by people, places, things. Incite (implement) positive things in your life.
While Insight2Incite Monthly and i2i Live appeals to a broad base of demographics, Maurice keeps a close eye on those representing Generation X. “As a Gen Xer myself, I am keenly aware we are often overlooked, sandwiched as we are between the huge groups of Baby Boomers and Millennials. We are growing up now, have started making our mark on our professions, many of us are married and have started a family. We have a broad range of interests and we need something that talks to us – since ours is a lifestyle magazine, it fills this void. “Our readers are fun, intelligent, educated trendsetters and tastemakers.”

He has witnessed the uniqueness of Kirkwood. “I’d like to have my office here. The people are so connected. They love the Kirkwood community, its long history, local businesses, their churches and the schools. They are happy to share their business knowledge which means a lot to me because I believe the more you know, the more you can do.”
