Why did you create your business?
“Our culture is riddled and crippled by the promotion of individualistic pursuits. We have greatly lost the understanding and exhibition of true family unity (love, strength, commitment, purpose, perseverance, etc.) within the confines of traditional family. However, corporations have adopted the traits (family branding) which ought to make families powerful and are successfully piling billions of dollars in their bank accounts. In short, the principles work greatly if applied properly and purposefully to our traditional families.
We deliver speeches, but most importantly seminars which allow individuals and family to acquire strategies, purpose, motivation, and more, as well as implement them. By implementing these principles we are able to securely set a winning multi-generational legacy which is sustainable long after we are dead and gone from this Earth. Our dependents are then able to eliminate destructive familial occurrences such as divorce, child abuse, domestic abuse, infidelity, alcoholism, self-centeredness, and many more.
Since studies show employees leave corporations more for personal reasons than for any other (financial, promotions, etc.), companies greatly impact turnover and other negative trends by investing in the personal lives of their employees. Companies will also realize increase revenue generation by improving the personal lives of their staff. A stable home life most frequently generates a long serving and productive employee rather than the contrary.”
What is the one scripture (or two) that you draw strength from?
“We seek greatly to serve and restore our fellow man, even in the midst of doubt and failure, much like Jesus Christ restores Peter after the resurrection. As such, the scripture which most empowers us and also reminds us to introspectively look at ourselves is John 21:15-17, The Love Motivation.”
Share the best advice you can share with an entrepreneur?
“Your greatest investment and ultimate road to success (professional, financial, spiritual) rest in the heart and souls of your people (employees or clients). Invest authentically!”
Have an interesting tidbit about your business or yourself that you would like to add?
“My life has been an amazing journey of a pretty healthy familial upbringing, lost it all to a tragic and treacherous African civil war, and received the mandate in my teenage years to restore the family to prominence. All of this has become the motivation for my current book, ‘The Firstborn Son: a Curse, a Gift, or a Calling.’”
