Adversity. It has driven me to being an entrepreneur, speaker and author. I was born in Los Angeles California with a silver spoon. But, after my parents separated the spoon got rusty. Within a matter of time I was in a single parent household, with little income living in Jamaica, a few years later New York and soon after that Florida. I have received food from Food for the Poor, lived with neighbors, worked two jobs to pay my college tuition, battled depression, severe panic attacks and have faced many more adversities. But I am no victim; as with each adversity I faced, I took it as a learning lesson, built a plan and allowed my purpose to be birthed.
“You should always have a plan. Whether it is college, business or a career, you must have a plan. Once you create the plan, execute it with faith.”
I truly do believe that everything is aligned for our greater purpose, and to live in your purpose you have to live without boundaries. In other words remove your limited beliefs from God’s potential. Without the adversities I faced I would have failed to be in alignment with my purpose. This belief has lead me to being a multi-passionate individual, committed to breaking the stereotypes of millennials, and the driving force behind my companies.
