The Art of Hope will inspire you to stop letting your environment determine how far you can go in life. I share my own experience of overcoming adversity defying the odds and how I was able to use the hardest things I’ve had to face in my life to build a successful family and career.
My belief is that everyone has been innately equipped with the ability to do something amazing with your life. The Art of Hope is how I show you how to uncover what’s buried inside of you and to sharpen the areas so you can take your life to the next level and then the level after that. I do this by sharing my story and the lessons I’ve learned along the way that you can apply to your own life.
Throughout history there have been people from all walks of life that have had to overcome impossible odds and dire circumstances to turn their life around and those stories should encourage each of us no matter where you are at to not give up on life as you begin writing your own amazing story.
A part of me wants to celebrate where I am because considering where I came from life is good I’m a serial entrepreneur who has been starting businesses looking for success for as long as I can remember most of them failed but a few succeeded and it only takes a few wins to change your life. But that’s what I do I’m an entrepreneur which means I look for problems and find solutions for them that can be turned into business opportunities. As much as I love solving problems and starting businesses, what I do is not who I am. I’m married to the girl of dreams and we have four amazing sons and 1 daughter, the legacy I leave with them will be what defines me. What I’ve learned is that the glory is not in the celebration it’s in stepping out on the journey when you are uncertain about the outcome driven by the hope of what could be.

Community Response to Child Abuse Conference 2022

Now, a married father of five, a successful entrepreneur and real estate investor.
