Branding Your Business with

Image by Wokandapix from Pixabay That's right, we are back in the classroom for another amazing semester of learning and exchanging ideas. And while some of you might cheat this semester like last semester, it is quite alright because there is still learning that is happening. I know, it sounds kind of weird to say that but truth be told, you really are still learning. You're learning in a collaborative way. My wife, being a teacher, will more than likely disagree with me but who cares. This...


Finals Week

The Semester is OVER!! I know, you want more lessons from our awesome guest professors, but the semester has come to an end. I must say that the inaugural semester of The School of Hard Knocks was a success. I am extremely proud of all of the hard work you as the class has put in and the lessons that were taught by the guest professors. As expected, you can look to this as your Finals. The only thing is, you're not getting a test, but more so of an overview of this semester. What I decided...


Breaking Your Own Glass Ceiling

As an ex-athlete turned weekend warrior, I understand the importance of a coach. The coach comes up with the game plan to win the game and our jobs, as the team, were to go out and execute the game plan. The coach often plays the role of the therapist to understand each player's trigger and the role of a parent to scold the team when the team is playing or practicing with no discipline. The coach often times see the bigger picture and where the players are just pieces to a puzzle. Pieces to...


Using Real Estate to Fund Dreams

Image by Gerd Altmann from Pixabay We've heard plenty of stories about real estate and why it's a MUST to have it be apart of your portfolio, but how exactly can you break into this real estate market? When I was younger, I was always told that the only way to break into real estate is by becoming a real estate agent. Then as I got older, I was told that I can just buy a bunch of houses and sell it or rent it out. With cable and satellite television, HGTV came on to the scene and I see that...


The Business of Multiple Hustles

Image by DarkWorkX from Pixabay Hip hop artist, Kendrick Lamar released a song called Money Trees off of his 2012 debut album, "Good Kid M.A.D.D City". In the lyrics, he said "Money Trees is the perfect place for shade. That's just how I feel". He goes on to say "A dollar might turn to a million and we all rich, that's just how I feel." How many of us really felt that a dollar might just turn into a million? Whether it's playing the lottery, putting it on a spread in Vegas or, most...


The Rhythm of Hard Work and Consistency

Image by Sebastiano Rizzardo from Pixabay It's no secret by now that I am a HUGE fan of music. Jazz music and old-school hip hop to be specific. Just for clarity, when I say old-school hip hop, I mean A Tribe Called Quest, Nas, Jay-Z and so forth. It's just something about the lyrics that allows me to be able to connect to the artist. It doesn't even have to be the lyrics, it can be the rhythm or the melody that I'm able to connect to. There's a thought that the artist or musician is trying...


Mental Health Awareness

Image by 3D Animation Production Company from Pixabay The world is starting to look different now. Masks seem to be an essential need as we walk out the doors of our own homes. Over the weekend, my wife and I did some shopping for the house and the sight was eye-opening for me. While there, I had a surreal moment because just about everyone there had on a mask. The way that we use to show and share love is starting to change. The need for being at a distance is starting to become a temporary...


Brokenness and The COMEBACK

We are often told that we cannot be in a broken place and get into a relationship with someone else who is in a broken place too. I might have butchered that phrase, but I believe that the point that I’m trying to make is made. Truth be told, there is a lot of truth there. Two broken people can’t exist in a relationship if both of them are broken………………… That’s it! That’s the phrase I was trying to recall……. Sorry, I’ve digressed. At least, that is what we have all been told at some point in...


Welcome to Class

Through these halls are your peers. Your peers consist of people who are chasing the same thing that you are. SUCCESS. When I was younger, I was always told that success leaves clues. The clues can often be a treasure hunt for those who are starting this journey of being or wanting to become an entrepreneur. Luckily for us, there are plenty of people that we can lean on to help us decipher the treasure map. Success is often a term that is different for people. What success is to me, may not...


The Business of YOU

Image by PublicDomainPictures from Pixabay When it comes to starting a business, people look for things to sell. Few think about the skills they have to offer as a product and even fewer create something from scratch. Whether it’s a new widget, or something so unimaginable in the past, but is insanely possible today with technology. We obviously can’t forget about those who became accidental entrepreneurs. What is an accidental entrepreneur? According to, “an...


The Business Behind A Church

Image by Rudy and Peter Skitterians from Pixabay Many people will look at a church…………well, as a church. People will argue that the church is just trying to take your money, and you’ll see the pastor drive down the street in some expensive car that many of the members of that church cannot afford to have themselves. The same talk will be happening even if half of the church members were able to afford those types of vehicles. While this is not a religious podcast, there is a time and a place...
