1. Tell us a little bit about your business or organization.
Distinguished Gentlemen is a Teen Development Program for males in 7th-12th Grade. DG equips young males with necessary skills and disciplines to successfully complete High School and conquer Life, through character building, life skills, etiquette training and step; never to feel alone or isolated because of their individual differences, giving them a Brotherhood of Community and Class. Because of my mission with DG, I also travel to speak in classrooms, schools, colleges and events, for youth and adults, speaking on topics about various Character traits, Success, Power of Your Brain and Nothing is Impossible.
"Nothing is Impossible"
2. What little piece of advice would you share with a fellow entrepreneur?
My advice to any fellow entrepreneur is take it slow and seek "wise counsel". It's better to do it slow and right than fast and wrong. Once you are out there, you only get one shot to make it impactful and grab attention. Momentum is a beautiful and powerful thing. But nothing will matter if you haven't sat down and talked it all out. Sharing it with people who are smarter than you is always a plus. This provides you a chance to have all angles, perspectives and pros and cons weighed for the greatest impact. It's better to build a house right the first time than to tear it down just to fix it.
3. As you started your own business, what resources (book or podcast) have been an encouragement to you?
Books - "Think and Grow Rich", "The 21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership", "Rich Dad Poor Dad", "Leadership 101"
These are just a few of the books that I've read and have taken great insight from. Leaders are Readers!

5. What is your favorite "pick-me-up" on a bad day?
