I Wanted Success With A Purpose
This story starts in June 2015 after turning down a promotion at Goldman Sachs (without a plan), attempting several failed start-up ideas, going financially broke and being emotionally broken after wasting the last of the $500,000+ I'd worked hard to earn, all in the midst of a personal crisis as we lost my father to cancer...
By the grace of God, this journey through adversity has given me the courage to embrace the best of me. I see my story as a platform to help people, not a prison to hide behind. Despite significant loss, I have more peace, joy, freedom and fulfillment than ever before. Today I'm on a mission to use my gifts in speaking and teaching so I can help people live their life to its fullest...
My vision is to see a new generation of seekers, leaders and influencers who are empowered to fulfill more of their potential, living with a clear purpose, while using their platform to make a meaningful, positive impact on others.
Who You Are Will Take You Further Than What You Do
Each of us was made to make a difference. And you're no different. But the problem is many of us have become so focused on performance that we've lost sight on how we're uniquely made for a purpose.
My purpose is to bring out the difference-maker in you...
While I was born and raised in Virginia, I now call New York City my home. Before speaking and coaching I was on a trading floor in foreign exchange sales. But in 2015 I decided to leave Goldman Sachs to begin a deeper search for purpose in life.
It took me several failed business ideas, going broke, and tragic loss to find the right path for me (actually, the "path" is a mentality). Now I'm using my experiences to help people discover how they can develop the right mindset, strategy, and tactics to build a life they're meant to lead.
Genuine, passionate, thoughtful, curious, empathetic, entrepreneurial, resourceful, and committed to improving myself for the sake of benefiting others. I work hard, and my hope is that my life can represent an ounce of God's love for us in this world.
Separately, in another chapter of my story, for the last eight years I've been a part of a team that's building a sustainable education model in Haiti. I'd be glad for you to learn more about our work and how you can help us empower people and create jobs in the communities we reach.
