I do many other things, but I want you to focus on the most important three things I’m currently doing:
Public Speaking, Writing and Podcast
HOW DO YOU DO THIS ?
I have a day time job as the director of RDJ Refugee Shelter in Harlem, my time is very valuable.
WHY DO YOU DO THIS ?
I am a bridge builder, I have waited on the side lines for so long and no one in my community was ready to step up so, I decided to take in as much responsibility as I can to make the world a better place!
I do accept speaking gigs, but do not contact me about a speaking event without considering the value of my time.
I only accept speaking opportunities that align to my set of values, not for profit management and social issue.
