Hi! 

Grab a cold one and let's chat a bit. 

I’m glad you’re here—because we’re a lot alike, you and me. We’re both making a life we love out of what we do. I'm just a regular guy who never wanted to have a regular job. I love the little things in life and never take myself too seriously. Laughing with friends and enjoying my family are two of my favorite things.  Oh yea, traveling and eating are fun too :) Today, I consider myself one of the most blessed people on earth. My greatest joy is helping inspire and educate others on how to succeed with their own entrepreneurial careers. Because when you’re your own boss, you’re free—and no one can put a cap on what you make. 

This is my personal blog. It is focused on early entrepreneurship. My mission is to help empower aspiring entrepreneurs around the world. As a result, I write on personal development, leadership, productivity, platform, and interesting experiences. On occasion, I write about stuff that doesn’t fit neatly into one of these categories.I'm a weirdo sometimes :)

My Story

Life wasn't always this way. On my way to graduating from the Virginia Union University, I was prepared to begin my dream job working for a Fortune 100 company . Life was good. And then it wasn't; the job I was offered was sabotaged by my career counselor. I decided then, I had to take my life...and income into my own hands. Never again would someone else decide when, where, or how I could work... and how much I could make. Yes, I was scared of the unknown I faced. And I was scared of the disappointment I’d bring to those I cared about. I didn’t know what the path forward looked like. And with the economy in crisis, I wasn’t sure how, when, or where I was going to find another job with that capability, especially one that I liked. At this point,I began running the family business while starting several small businesses of my own to add to my portfolio. Although the entrepreneurial path was challenging and risky, it was invigorating and felt right. The rest, as they say, is history.

Looking back,not getting that job was the best thing that could have ever happened to me. Without my 9-to-5 job holding me back, I’ve since been able to earn more money while working less hours and most importantly...on my own terms. The end result is a lifestyle built around my faith,quality time with my family, and enjoying as much as I can.

My dream has come true. Join me?

Are your best days in the past or are they yet to come?

Ask yourself.
Are your best days in the past  or are they yet to come?
Well, when you ask 99% of  people out there, here’s what  happens.
They pause and then…
They're going to kind of look down and let out a little sigh and they’re going to tell you  something like: 
"Back in my day… 
...I was the shit." 
Or they’re going to say: 
"Yeah... life used to be so easy… Life used to be… so chill."
Right?
That’s just depressing. 
Seriously.
Who cares about your past?
I’m telling you if your best days  are in the past, you’ve got a  problem.
A big one.
It tells me first of all, you aren't looking forward to anything. You probably hate your work.

 You probably have no control of your

No vacancy!

Don’t allow people or bad thoughts to occupy space in your head rent free!
I own some real estate and I would never allow a tenant to stay rent free. In that same spirit I would never allow negative conversations or gossip to occupy my mind rent free. My mind is the most valuable piece of real estate I own. The ideas that live there have given me the greatest returns. To think I would allow a non-paying relationship or conversation to stay there for free when paying ideas are looking for a room is crazy! 
Let negative people be negative with their negative lives and their negative bank accounts! 
When it comes to negativity...
repeat after me...
No Vacancy!

You don't need a second job...

Follow the logic here. When most people need more money, they go get a second job. Your primary income is a job. It’s not bringing you enough income, so you look to supplement it with another one. Usually the second job is some kinda retail or unusual shift and pays less than the first one. If you think about it, it is actually more of the same. You're getting more of something that isn't meeting your needs anyway. After you work your fulltime there are only a few hours left for you to create more income. We only have 24 hours in a day, so your time is somewhat limited. You’re typically tired from the fulltime so you can only work the part time a few days a week...if they let you. Then after you take the taxes out, additional costs incurred by working and extra job (dinners out, different apparel, baby sitters) what did you REALLY bring home per hour after working and all the commuting and errands that come with it?

Does that make sense? I&…
