Hey there.. it's a pleasure to meet you!
My entrepreneurial journey did not begin easy. In fact, the road was so rocky that I almost gave up before I started. With so much negative push back from family and friends telling me to get real job, I decided to follow my passion. I opened my first business while a student at Clark Atlanta University. That business grew into a passion. From there it became an obsession. Even though I moved through corporate America in some very high paying positions, deep down inside, I was never happy. I did it simply to satisfy my parents and to pay bills.
It wasn't until I got laid off from my six figure job that I said enough is enough. In foreclosure and near bankrupt, the money wasn't coming in like it was before. I had to gain control over my life. No longer will I be a pond in the hand of someone who can dismiss me without a second thought. I paid for my education and it was my wealth. No one could take it from me and only I could give it away. This is when I truly began to identify with myself and quantify my worth.
Since that time, for over 20 years, I've owned and operated many successful endeavors, some of which I still own today. I remain a lover of the real estate and insurance industry with a dab of network marketing at my side. These opportunities have given me freedom and the ability to help others be free too.
You see... It's not just about the money. It's about getting your life back and doing the things you enjoy doing without being told when and how long you have to do it. It's the FREEDOM that allows me to jump out of bed with the anticipation of meeting the next life I will change. That's what being an entrepreneur means to me.
