I was originally born in Richmond Virginia with a very loving and caring family, that taught me the true meaning of commitment and work ethic at an early age. Growing up we never had much but we always had our faith to know that things will get better. Growing up in the inner city, there were never any examples of success. I found myself looking to the streets as a way to help my family out of our financial struggle. But the rewards of that lifestyle leads to nothing of any meaning. That is why as a teenager I grew my mind and embarked on several entrepreneurial businesses from cutting grass in the neighborhood, helping out the elderly, to even using my artistic skills to make an extra dollar, so I could help my family out and so I would never have to ask them for money. That showed me that I could accomplish and do anything I desired, as long as I put my best foot forward.
I am now a husband to a wonderful wife and a father, who never stops thinking and pushing for greatness so my family and my children and generations to come will never want or struggle the way I did. However, I found my self working one of those “dead end” jobs, and at an early age having high blood pressure because of being stressed working for a successful engineering company. That moment I began to look for more opportunities to succeed because I believed that life had more to offer than just stress. In the process I found myself a product of a struggling economy and being laid off, restructured…all a fancy words for fired, right before the birth of our first child. Since then, thankful God, I never returned to the workforce and now live full time and having more time to play those important roles in my family and in the community. All because I trusted God with the right opportunities.
It only takes one person to change the name of their family forever. But I also have a passion for helping those who seek change. I feel that it is my reasonable service to help those who are ready and willing to develop into leaders, and then duplicate the process…just like the movie “Pay it Forward”. I truly believe that living in abundance, as it was promised to us, is possible.
I believe that the reality is whatever you settle for, but can be whatever you go for. I’m simply on a mission to use all the gifts and talents that God has given me and bring Him the Glory to show others life can be better. I’m also searching for individuals that know they are destined for greatness and has a high level of motivation as well as focus. I believe it is possible to have a great life the way God intended for it to be.
