One of the most pressing problems for the African American community is the lack of jobs and economic opportunity. This problem doesn't just affect our economic well-being, it seeps into every dimension of black life. When we depend on others to create jobs for us, we often end up frustrated, mistreated, and economically insecure.
This program is for those who've had enough.

I love to learn. I love to teach.. I never presume that I know everything, since the key to knowledge is understanding how little you actually know. But my goal is to give information, insights and perspectives that allow you to broaden your thinking and to realize all that is possible.
