- If you were to give a speech to young men, what would you title your speech and why?
Be Unapologetically You!
I truly believe that we were created with a unique seed of greatness in each of us at the time of our conception. However, as we grow, life has a tendency of presenting situations that cause us to see ourselves as less than the fullness of who we are, less than capable of accomplishing the big dreams we have in our youth. This can cause us to shrink into a lesser or smaller version of ourselves that fits into society and its expectations of us based on our background, skin color, or economic status. It’s important that we don’t allow ourselves to be minimized to make those around us and the rest of the world comfortable. Therefore I say be all of who you are, unapologetically because the world needs all of you in your fullness.
- What two quotes do you use to motivate yourself and others?
-“And we know that all things work together for good for those who love God, who are called according to his purpose,” (Romans 8:28 NET)
- Name two iconic humans that have inspired you or currently inspire you. Why?
Ava Duvernay- I love the way she boldly uses her influence and talent to be a champion for women and people of color.
President Barack Obama- A shining star and a symbol that as a black man in America everything is possible and available to us, a healthy and unified family unit, a fulfilling career and an amazing legacy.
- Please share the evolution of your brand and purpose.
My personal brand has grown from being non-existent to being acutely focused on inspiring positive life changes through the power of film and other forms of content. This is expressed not only through the projects I produce but also in the education and empowerment of fellow content creators that I am fortunate enough to encounter.
- How do you build your network for success?
Thorough the continued expansion of resources that are a result of cultivating and nurturing strong genuine relationships.
- What two moments in your life changed you the most?
- A failed relationship
- Forgiving my father
- What are three important pieces of advice you would tell your son/future son/God son, etc.?
Trust God, trust the process, & trust yourself!
There’s both power and strength in vulnerability.
Always, see the good in people first, but don’t ignore the bad either.
- What piece of advice would you tell your teenage self?
Don’t hold back the world needs all of you!
- What advice would you give to young men about dealing with their emotions?
Emotions are important and we should pay close attention to them they give us clues about who we are, what we are passionate about, and areas in our life that we need to attend to. However, emotions change quickly and often and should not be what we you use to respond to the situations that life presents.
- If you could leave a legacy to your children/grandchildren, what would it be?
A strong relationship with God, a name that carries great influence, wisdom to use and grow that influence in every area of life, and I’m sure a few billion/trillion dollar bags wouldn’t hurt.
- What do you define as your #BlackManMagic?
Understanding that I have the ability to influence any situation or environment that I enter. Be it a smile, word of encouragement, or an opportunity I have access to an endless supply of power that can enhance the life of everyone I encounter.
