“Live life from the hunger of your heart. When you fill your heart with what you hunger for, your mind will find the way to achieve your desires.”

— Les Brown


“Your past does not define you,instead it refines you.”

— JB Owen



“Live life from the hunger of your heart. When you fill your heart with what you hunger for, your mind will find the way to achieve your desires.”

Since I discovered my purpose in life, my desire has been to leave a legacy of greatness that others may be inspired by. I was fortunate to have positive guides and examples of greatness that led me to uncover different parts of myself at critical times in my life.

My intention is to pay it forward and help other people trust in their abilities in order to achieve a life that reflects their individual goals, dreams, and passions.

Understanding and walking into your own personal power are crucial elements to discovering your personal, emotional, and financial success. I hope that you will allow my story to inspire you to believe that there’s nothing you can’t accomplish once you put your mind, spirit, heart, and HUNGER into it!

If you’ve followed my career or heard me speak, then you know that I believe we are each put on earth on purpose and with a purpose. It’s true, we are all designed to create something great and meaningful in life, and it’s our jobs to fulfill our purpose.

That’s why even if we’ve never met, I can still say without doubt that you have GREATNESS within you.

All of us do.

Unfortunately, the majority of us never discover our greatness. We become trapped inside of faulty thinking and hold on to a smaller vision of who we truly are. As I often say, you can’t see the picture when you’re inside the frame, and you can’t read the label when you’re locked inside the box. You will often need someone else to help you reach your next level because they can see what you’re too close or not properly positioned to see.

I understand all too well what it means to have the cards stacked against you and to have to fight for your dreams. I also understand what it means to live a life where dreaming can feel like an intangible luxury. Even though my adoptive mother filled our lives with love and kindness, I still grew up in a very tense and scary time where just being myself seemed to be a crime.

I was a young Black boy in the South during some of the most tumultuous times in the United States in terms of race relations. I share some of my harrow-ing experiences and encounters with object discrimination in my most recent book, You’ve Got to be Hungry.

I am always shocked at the number of people who still can’t comprehend that such a time existed in what many considered the most progressive and inclusive country in the world.

I truly believe that in life there will be events and situations that happen in your life either for you, to you, or through you.

Growing through those experiences was essential and it happened for me. As I look back, I see that in some respects, I couldn’t afford to live a sheltered life of innocence because I needed to be able to learn how to handle difficult circumstances.
