Words From The Path
We are our brother’s keepers.
My personal interest and passion revolve around the journey of our youth …. “From City Streets to Wall Street”. Our future depends on our investment in our youth today from the corporate world, Public Sectors to Entrepreneurial Ventures. This drives my passion with Learning, Sharing and Scaling within our communities.
My drive and commitment is founded on the belief that it is important to the health and well being of our community to have balance and collaboration between the business, civic, economic and social elements of the city of Chicago.
Dr. Leon Finney
Leadership to me means having passion about what you do and perseverance to achieve your goals. I believe that leaders are ordinary people who accept or are placed under extraordinary circumstances that bring forth their untapped potential, producing a character that inspires the confidence and trust of others.
Retirement is great once you adjust to it. It allows my wife and I to enjoy Chicago in the spring and summer, and enjoy traveling a great deal for the rest of the year.
I’ve mastered the ability to elevate small talk into medium talk. Try me! My biggest pet peeve is negative people. Why? Ain’t nobody got time for that.
To whom much is given, much is expected.
My personal path to success hasn’t been very personal, but a shared journey with a lot of help from many others (my wife, parents, mentors, colleagues and friends). Since I’ve had a lot of help along the way, I am passionate about mentorship and helping others achieve their goals and successes in life (particularly our youth).
I am an avid golfer. It not only provides relaxation, exercise and a friendly competitive spirit, it is a great way to talk business among colleagues. My firm belief in the mantra, “To Whom Much is Given, Much is Required,” motivates me into giving back and helping others. Taking the time to mentor the next generation is a priority for me.
You have to be careful who you share your dreams with because people will tend to share their fears. What you are actually hearing is what they can’t do.
