Words From The Path
My personal path to success is exemplified by the following poem that I live by: I’m tired of sailing my little boat, far inside the harbor bar. I want to go out where the big ships float, out on the deep where the great ones are. And should my frail craft prove too slight for waves that sweep those billows o’er, I’d rather go down in the stirring fight than drowse to death at the sheltered shore.
Success is not about how smart you are. It is about how much passion and determination you have to relentlessly pursue your dream. You must be self-confident. Some may call it an ego. But you must believe in yourself, because there will be many others that will not believe in you or your idea.
I love jazz and think there are stories on Black lifestyles that have been mistold, untold and need to be retold. Chicago is the greatest city and is where the world lives. Nothing like a bike ride on the lakefront in the summer time. Tennis anyone?
I believe inherently that it’s a blessing to be able to look back at where you came from, but that it’s more important to reach back. It’s remarkable to me that some 230 years after DuSable settled in Chicago, it is- although a city of world renown- still the best kept secret in the universe; A collection of neighborhoods and languages and people. I feel completely committed and responsible to always making sure that she can be the best city possible.
I was always taught to leave people and situations better than I found them. My goal both personally and professionally is, and always has been, to do just that.
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 greatest growth has come at times when I have stepped outside of my comfort zone.Part of my purpose in life is to bring people together around common goals and shared interests.
One of the most significant challenges facing the African American Community is the quality of education provided to our youth. It is important that all of us contribute to the improvement of education in our community. In my spare time, I enjoy golfing and traveling abroad.

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.
