Community is the


to our soul

Wealth, Health, & Education

are arteries to a thriving community. Wealth is not just lots of money, it's what sustains you - home ownership is the foundation of that.

I've been investing

in real estate for 16 years, building communities by investing in people one family at a time. Community is the connection to our soul. Its important for me to stay connected. Connected to myself, my family and my community. Let me show you how to connect.

  • Money matters more than your vote.

    Money Matters more than your vote. Every two years there is this onslaught of black people encouraging other black people to vote. I’m not sure if white people do this in their communities but as far back as I can recall, blacks have been doing so. There are voter registration drives everywhere, churches, supermarkets, even […]

  • Born winners don’t cry they seize!

    Born winners don’t cry they seize. If you’re reading this you’re a winner. You might not believe it but I am telling you-you are. So why don’t you believe it? Are you afraid of what winning looks like? Are you afraid of the people you’ll have to leave behind if you allow your light to […]

  • Seize

    This is the season of lions. Time to hunt and seize opportunities. To never give up on what it is you want. Like a lion hunts its prey, stay low to the ground and forever hungry; it’s the season of the lion and the lion will be fed. This is the season of lions. Being […]

  • Do black lives matter to black people?

    I read an article about high black achievers like the first black billionaire Reginald Lewis and Black Enterprise founder Earl Graves. The article was asking the question why do so many high achievers that graduated from Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU) choose to send their children to Ivy League or predominantly white institutions (PWI)? […]

  • Bike Ride

    Yesterday my wife taught our daughter how to ride her bike. You might ask why am I choosing this to write about? What is the big deal hundreds to even thousands of children learn to ride a bike every day? Well, for now, I’ll just say because of the word postulate. Two weeks ago at […]

  • In Spite Of

    I have been speaking/training for a fee since 2004, business coaching since 2015 and hosting a radio show Connection since April of 2016. As both a trainer and business coach I’ve come across people getting in their own way on the road to success. They seem to sabotage their dreams out of fear, self-doubt, and […]

  • Gun Love

    We have seemed to have forgotten that this country has an obsession with guns. Yes, you read it correctly an obsession. Well, the founding fathers annihilated the native Americans with it. They enslaved the African with it and became one of the wealthiest nations in the world. They have created nuclear forms of it. That they […]

  • Resolution

    It’s the new year and many are writing resolutions and reflecting on what they would like to have in this. Another, year. I believe that resolutions should be a daily routine and we should act them out not just reflect. Hence the problem we’ve become so programmed that just the tradition of New Year’s has […]

  • As we watch

    The more and more I study people the more and more I notice.  I discover new things about who we are and how we are programmed to follow.   Often times we’re afraid to speak, speak out, speak up for anything that may spark controversy or a negative response from the masses. It’s as if […]

  • The One Percent

    People have a way of having one believe that being one’s best is too hard to achieve. To achieve greatness is too much to ask. But what I know is that life has only two paths. You can live life like others and measure yourself too low or you dig down deep and master every […]
