INSPIRATION BEHIND MONIQUE GUILD’S DOCUMENTARY “6,150.”
Several years ago, Monique took to the road, Directed, Produced and drove 6,150 miles across the nation with her two dogs, Tyler and Jackson.
The journey was initially inspired by watching a documentary about a man in Alabama who’d trained his three big fat pigs to dance up to their food. They wanted to meet this man and thought it would take two weeks to find him.
Three months later, they’d filmed a documentary titled “6,150.” They’d driven 6,150 miles across the country.
The three of them searched for people who hung in there despite the obstacles they encountered, realized their dream, and now are uplifting and helping humankind. She wanted to uncover the good happening in the United States because she was horrified by the negative media of these times and wanted to show that there was an enormous amount of good happening too.
While filming this documentary, Monique, Jackson, and Tyler met some of the most amazing and inspiring people.

I’ve got three children to raise, and the Lord has plans for me!” At the age of 11, Flo lived in a project molested and beaten but, she heard a voice, and God said to her, “You will help people in real-estate one day.” She had no idea at that time what that meant.
When she received her prognosis, she quit her job at AT&T and got her real estate license, opening Rainbow Reality in Picayune Ms.Now, twenty-four years later, Flo is a realtor who helped 100’s of homeless people buy homes to get off the street.
She said to Monique, “Monique, when ‘they’ think I’m crazy — I get HAPPY feet. I get HAPPY feet, and I start “dancin.” I don’t look to my left, and I don’t look to my right because I walk by faith and not by sight!“
