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?

When I was over 100k in delinquent debt

When I was over 100k in delinquent debt on the brink of losing everything I had to look myself in the mirror and take inventory. After making what I considered a tremendous amount of money at the time, now I sit here and realized I exhausted my savings, investments, credit, and almost ALL resources. I was blaming everything. The economy, bad partners, bad employees, stock market, location, bad vendors...you name it...I blamed it. But again, I had to take inventory How did I get here? Was it the economy? or was it me? Was it time to close businesses? Sell businesses? Sell assets? Was I successful as I thought I was? After careful consideration... I came to the conclusion I did work hard... I did do some things right.... but here I was... because I made some bad decisions and didn't hustle hard enough. Success made me soft. I stopped doing what I did to get there and coasted a bit. I did not prepare myself. I did not insulate myself. The economy WAS bad, but I still should have had better…

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
