Engage – Wednesday’s Word

This summer, as I stand up my new leadership development and coaching business, I am learning about the art of “engagement.” Engaging with people of like interests has been quite rewarding and educational for me.

Through engagement, I have earned new contracts for my business…just being proactive in my approach. I have met so many decision makers in their government agencies, corporations and churches, where I perform my training. The best is yet to come as I attend summer conferences and conventions that are hosted by major organizations in our communities – Black Enterprise, US Black Chambers, Inc., and the Congressional Black Caucus Foundation, not to mention great speaking engagements coming up this fall with youth services and medical organizations.

This is NOT about me…but about YOU. Please engage with your constituents and colleagues in your network. Be relentless in your approach, yet professional, tactful and assertive (not aggressive). You’ll be glad that you did!

Birthday Reflections – Wednesday Word

On Sunday & Monday of this week, I celebrated my 58th birthday.

First, at church on Sunday with a ton of family, friends and members where I preached from the topic: “A Friend Indeed.” This simple, yet profound sermon reminded us all about the value and merits of friendship. Jesus is our friend and advocate! I saw friends from my high school as well as my freshman year in college and everyone else in between. What a joy. Afterwards, we had dinner with my immediate family, my dad and brother and good friend Thom, from high school.

On Monday, the 16th, my actual date of birth in 1960, I spent time meeting at a government agency to discuss my business mission and vision with a great team of professionals, then spent time with my middle son, Chris, in DC at the 2018 MLB All-Star Game festivities at the Washington Convention Center. What a joy to see the Hall of Fame mementos and having a greater appreciation for the players back in the 1800’s and early 1900’s. I took a photo next to the World Series trophy, made new each year by Tiffany’s and valued at close to $1M, and being in the company of thousands of fans throughout my day. Later that evening, I had dinner again with my immediate family.

Birthday’s are to be cherished with loved one’s. It was a great day…I look forward to so many more! Dream big…

On this day, as Americans, we reflect, restore and celebrate our country’s independence. It is a joyous day to be alive and well.

As you celebrate with family and friends today, be mindful of our neighbors as we enjoy our mutual freedoms in this great land that we collectively call the USA. Do not take it for granted – cherish and embrace it. We are blessed!
