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.

  • The Haze of Life

      Have you ever sat and contemplated why you were born? For that matter why any of us humans were born? I, for some reason, have been asking myself this question for years. It’s easy to get caught up in the haze of things that look good like bling, houses or cars. So many of […]

  • Spring

      Spring is the season of growing; it’s the season of fresh and clean. Since I was a child growing up in Chicago it’s been my favorite season. Well, I guess when you’re from one of the coldest cities in the winter it only makes sense. Yet, I’ve loved it more for the newness then […]

  • Pussy Power

      I travel often mainly for business. My travel tends to take me away from my family. I’ve noticed that I miss my family more each time I go away. Even when I’m traveling for pleasure. Not sure if it’s because I’m getting older or for some other reasons but I’ve noticed it nevertheless. What […]

  • Work

      How hard can one work to be a billionaire? How much physical effort does it take to turn out a million dollars? Can you really work so hard that your input equals output? The examples of the lives of people I follow like Oprah Winfrey, Richard Branson, Reginald Lewis, Warren Buffett, Robert Smith, and […]

  • Money Matters

      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 there communities but as far back as I can recall blacks have been doing so. There are voter registration drives everywhere, Churches, supermarkets, even the local night clubs. I […]

      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 […]

  • 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 feed. 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 […]

  • 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, […]
