Since the beginning of my career, I have been passionately committed to helping others live the lifestyle they’ve always wanted today, while planning the legacy they will leave tomorrow. My mission is: “To increase the quality of life of others, keep families together, break generational curses and to build lasting legacies of significance, purpose and worth.”
I have received hundreds of endorsements for my expertise in financial services and have been a go-to expert on TV, Radio and other media outlets alike. My previous podcast, The UNCENT$ORED Show, is ranked as a top 10 podcast by Forbes and has downloaded by thousands of people in over 50 countries. We are on pace to set new records with our latest Podacast, The Melanin Money Show.
Aside from my various roles within my companies, I participate in a number of community and philanthropic events in the Charlotte area as well as speaking engagements about financial empowerment, business, and personal development. The cornerstone of my philosophy that I live by is “It’s not about what you would do if you could; it’s what you can do with what you have.” I enjoy being physically active, spending time with family and friends and traveling with my wife, Majesty.
I am a graduate of the University of North Carolina at Greensboro where I received a Bachelor’s degree in Marketing and Economics from the Bryan School of Business and was honored with the Young Alumni of The Year Award in 2019.
