One Word That Describes You: Sociable

 

What does being one of the BEMM 100 Men of Distinction mean to you?

Living on purpose and finding your lane.

What are some examples of how you turned struggle into success?

I find remaining transparent in my journey, aka the struggle, has been the key to my success. I pride myself on owning whatever it is.

What is an important quality you look for in your relationships with others?

One of my favorite song is “What Can I do For You” by Labelle and the line I love the most is People want sincerity and nothing more. That’s exactly what I look for in a relationship: sincerity.

What are some immediate projects you are working on?

Currently I’m working on a TV show premiere dinner.

What is the best advice you ever received?

Know your calling, understand your calling and live by your calling.

What is some advice you have for other men who want to make a difference?

Write what you want to do down, then activate your belief system, then get out there and do it. It’s that simple.

How do you prep for an important business meeting and/or event?

I pray and claim every day. So before meetings and events, I always tell myself people always remember the crazies, so remain calm and don’t let them see you sweat.

As a busy Modern Man, how do you unwind on vacation?

My remedy for unwinding wherever and whenever is good music and good wine. Sometimes that experience alone can make you feel like you’ve been on a vacation.

If you could travel and stay anywhere in the world, where would it be and why? 

I like to travel the continent of Africa. I’m a firm believer that you can always get a sense of where you’re going if you know where you’ve come from.

Anything else you’d like to say?

Don’t ever trip on your position, just always understand your mission.
