1. Where were you born and raised; current city; family; hobbies; past business highlights...
I was born in Inglewood, California and raised between Inglewood and the Inland Empire. I currently live in Greenbelt, Maryland. I enjoy competition, encouraging youth to excel in life, and supporting individuals to get the most out of life. These elements are essential as we think about the sustainability and promotion of health, wealth and prosperity.
2. How have you grown or personally developed since joining PlanNet?
Since joining PlanNet, I have increased my sense of urgency centered by sustainability of life, enhancement of self, recognizing the integral interrelatedness of trust and relationship-building as well as the benefit of authenticity and communication in building a network. Through these phenomena, I am able to continue my evolution of self-awareness and learner-centered decision-making.
3. What drives you; what motivates you?
The thing that drives or motivates me is the concept of winning: winning in the sense of financial and personal capital as well as winning as a mind shift. This approach centers people and creates a space that allows for people to grow personally and professionally.
4. Who would you consider a role model and why?
Because of my growth mindset, I would consider myself a role model. I believe that to be living is about learning in support of others; fostering relationships promotes this. People are observing and analyzing even when we do not realize it. So it behooves the masses to use your platform to welcome a spirit of collaboration and support that is beneficial to all. It also means that you create a space where you acknowledge self-awareness, the importance of self-efficacy, and how your presence impacts others just by showing up.
5. The three words that describe you best are:
If I had to describe myself in three words, they would be germane to power - influential, tenacious, and fearless.
6. If you had some sound advice to give to anyone what would it be?
The art of life is about marking your mark, determining how you want to be remembered and leaving that legacy for others to resound. The best advice I would offer individuals would be to not be afraid to F.A.I.L. (for all I’ve learned) as these things underwrite your success. Often times in life, there is this belief or disbelief that to be where we ultimately want to be means that we have never had a struggle; very few tell the story of resilience in both cognitive and logical conditions.
7. What does your life look like five years from now?
Five years from now it is my alternate goal to be the sole owner of my life’s undertaking - financially, spiritually, emotionally and physically. In layman‘s terms, that means that I have used this platform as a means to mature myself and others in a quest for financial wealth and independence in all facets of work and systematized such efforts to reach the masses.
