As a child of divorce growing up in the inner city of Milwaukee - I wasn’t supposed to be successful.
I was supposed to be a statistic; just another casualty of the highest incarceration rate for black males in America.
Robbed at gunpoint. Surrounded by violence. 1.6 GPA.
That WAS my story.
Until I decided to write a new one.
I decided to live with purpose. And you can too.
You can’t live a life fulfilled until you live a life with purpose.
It’s Time To Begin Your Pursuit Of Purpose
Every single person has a vision for what they want their life to be.
Some people will hustle, work hard, and make that vision a reality.
But, unfortunately, for the vast majority, that vision will remain what it is - an idea.
Fear paralyzes you. Comfort holds you hostage.
I was just like you once. My corporate job was providing me with a steady paycheck, benefits, and security. I had a vision but I was afraid. What if I failed? What if no one booked me to speak? What if we have a health crisis when I lose my insurance?
Fear was winning. Until I discovered what living with purpose can do.
I had more to offer the world and so do you.
It’s your time. Now’s your chance. What are you waiting for?
