Work With Me

An Overview of This Page

This page provides an overview of what I have to offer, along with a taste of what you can expect. You can click on the links below to take you directly to the relevant sections.

What You Can Expect

Here’s what you can expect from me and my team:

  1. Prompt professional replies to your phone calls and email messages.
  2. An announcement about your event on my blog and social media channels. (This assumes that your event is open to the public and you want additional visibility for it.)
  3. An engaging, inspirational and motivational delivered presentation focused on achieving the outcomes you want with your audience.
  4. A quick follow-up communication after the event with someone on my team, to make sure I met your expectations. (I also want to know how you think I can improve.)
  5. A custom resource page, it will include the slides I used in the presentation, along with links to books, articles, and other resources I believe will be helpful.

A Little About Me

I am from Durham, NC and I graduated with an economics degree from North Carolina Agricultural & Technical State University. I run at least 30 miles a week, read at least 4 books a month, and watch no TV outside of sporting events and select movies. I started my first business employing friends selling Gatorades in 10th grade of high school and haven’t looked back. I have led a company of over 100 people, worked for 3 fortune 500 companies, and been in every leadership development program you can think of. I speak to share my personal journey and expertise with students about entrepreneurship, leadership, and personal development. Everybody has a story and I inspire people to tell it, not only by their words but by their life.

My Most Requested Topics

I speak on topics related to branding, entrepreneurship, career prep, and overcoming obstacles. I will customize my presentation to meet your organization’s specific needs. My goal is to facilitate the outcome you want to create. My most requested topics include the following. Keep in mind that I primarily present these as a keynote speaker, workshop facilitator or as a participant on a panel.

For Middle School & High School Students

Remember You’re a Genius 

I believe everybody on this earth has a genius level ability in something. I meet so many students each day that can tell me all their weaknesses but can’t identify their own strength’s. Society, Peers, and Teachers define their reality. In this presentation I will go over 3 things you MUST do to realize your true genius as well as practical and actionable ways they can be THEIR best, maintain positivity, and make right decisions.

Students will:

  • Go through the Remember You’re a Genius exercise created to help them find their passion
  • Understand the importance of owning their story and using it to their advantage
  • Receive 3 strategies to overcome any obstacle they may face

You Are What You Post |Social Media Branding 2.0 

The wrong post to a social network nowadays can lead to arrest, cyber bullying, and inability to receive employment. In this presentation I will discuss practical do and don’ts of social media and how to build NOT destroy your online identity. Also majority of students don’t leverage the internet or social media for what they could be doing. In a world where there are billions of resources to allow kids to start business, find mentors, get inspiration. I will talk about 5 key steps to start making the internet a positive tool in your life and how to positively leverage social media.

Students will:

  • Understand how to and how NOT to use social media effectively
  • Learn about they way’s they can utilize social media to get a job or create their own income
  • Learn the 5 Key Steps to Personal Branding

For College Students

Stop Dreaming, Start Being

Everybody has a dream and the opportunity to achieve it. Why most students and young adults fail to fulfill their full potential is simply because they start too late. This presentation gives strategies & approaches to empower students to start NOW.

Students will:

• Learn the 4 steps to balance college and an active social life

• The importance of being involved outside of the classroom

• The 2 key steps to pursuing your dreams while in college

Audience: Freshman Students and Greek Life

Preparation Creates Separation

Each year over 100 million college aged students apply for jobs. The competition is much larger then their own high school’s or college campuses. This presentation shares the secrets for students to obtain, thrive, and impact internships, and full-time jobs.

Working for 3 fortune 500 companies, participating in two of the top leadership development programs I have gained a ton of insight on career preparation. I teach students how to navigate the 4 stages of the job process; preparation, application, interview, and final decision process.

Students will:

• Learn how to leverage Linked-In, Instagram, and Twitter to create the job of their dreams

• Understand the importance and strategies to creating an amazing online presence

• Take away the 3 Most Important Steps to Ace ANY interview

Audience: All College Students preparing for the Real World
