The initial career I was seeking before college was a huge stretch for me. It was either in computer science or professional soccer, but I didn’t care. I was a bit delusional, but that’s what got me here.
Being involved in one of those professions would be awesome and I knew I’d have a great time doing it. My opportunity was to start small and build from the bottom.
It all started because I was on the Clark College soccer team. We had to take a pilot course called College Success because returning student-athletes weren’t making the 2.0 grade point average. Within the course, I’ve learned several great skill sets that have helped me beyond my college career but was also a primer to my social entrepreneurial journey.
One day the instructor put on the VHS tape into the VCR. It was old and started off very cheesy, but then it happened. A black guy was speaking to a room full of white people that wasn’t an athlete or actor. He was encouraging, educational and empowering. His name was Les Brown and was a motivational speaker.
Mr. Brown’s video was inspirational. He told a story of his DJ experience and got me so fired up, I had to take action. By the end of the video, I decided to change my major.
I needed to make a change- and it was going to be life-changing. Instantly, I was changed. My world showed me something I didn’t know existed. He encouraged me to another level of consciousness. I could be a Les Brown inspiring others to live their dreams.
This was the change that I needed. And since making that change, I’ve never looked back. There have been many costly sacrifices, but no regrets. I was going to become Mr. Social Entrepreneur.
I write this because my business is personal because this service is for the advancement of all humanity. My failures and successes are for your gain. No strings attached.
