Words of Wisdom | Despise Not The Chastening | September Highlight

The Words...
“My son, despise not the chastening of the Lord; neither be weary of his correction: For whom the Lord loveth he correcteth; even as a father the son in whom he delighteth.”
-Proverbs‬ ‭3:11-12‬ ‭KJV

The Wisdom...
“Despise not the chastening of the Lord" meaning it's better to be corrected by the Lord in our life than to live unruly without correction. "Whom the Lord loveth he corrected” God loves us and he wants us to fulfill our purpose in life. He corrects us just like a Mother or Father would when we're off course!

The Way I See It...
“ We all become uncomfortable when issues occur in our lives. We must understand during these time that the Lord is making us stronger. Sometime it may seem like we're doing the right thing. Yet it seems like we can't get ahead! Remember the Lord chasten those who he loves like parents! In order to mold us into our DESTINY!

Good September 2018 Smartpreneur...Direction!

Good Day SMARTpreneurs!
It's 9th month of the year, therefore you should know, what direction to take towards your goals! Are you a little lost? You may need a compass to guide you towards real results.


It's hard for you to achieve those goals because you have no real direction. Until you have a solid direction and understanding of where you are, you can't get to where you want to be. You must create your compass in life! It ensures that you are not wasting energy going the wrong way.

Even when everything is going great! If you're going the wrong way, you are wasting priceless time. No matter how fast you're going on the right road, it's easy to get off track from time to time. If you are going the wrong way all the time, you will not get the results you want. So make sure to use your compass during your journey!

Good August 2018 Smartpreneur......Change

Good Day #SMARTpreneurs!
It's August! Hopefully, you made the necessary #changes in your work #discipline towards your #goals...If not its time to do so now! Change begins with you!

Let's be honest, nobody likes change! Really, leaders don't like change only if it's their idea. But change is essential to growth in your work - life journey. It's probably the thing we like the least about the process of growth.

You must embrace change in every area of life. The only way we can better our tomorrow is to make a change for today. You must remember change is a nature processing we have in order to be successful.

Understand both positive and negative change will happen in life. Your only challenge is the negative change! You must counteract with positive changes for a better outcome tomorrow.

Take a good look at your life, at this point. What do you need to change about yourself today? Remember change starts with you, don't blame anyone for your issues. Especially if you are not willing to change yourself. You don't have to love change, but you have to do it to achieve the success you want in life. - Shawn Ryan Randleman

The Words...
“I gave my back to the smiters, and my cheeks to them that plucked off the hair: I hid not my face from shame and spitting. For the Lord God will help me; therefore shall I not be confounded: therefore have I set my face like a flint, and I know that I shall not be ashamed.”
Isaiah 50:6-7 KJV

The Wisdom...
"I gave my back to the smiters, and my cheeks to them” means when people are talking bad about you, just turn away but…. "I hid not my face from shame and spitting.” meaning don’t hide your face embrace the hate because it will make you stronger towards your purpose in life.

The Way I See It...
Further, as you read…"I set my face like a flint, and I know that I shall not be ashamed…” why? "For the Lord God will help me; therefore shall I not be confounded”…just mediate on it….stop worrying about all your naysayers and haters. Remember most people don’t know your story or purpose.

"Some cause happiness wherever they go; others whenever they go"

Words of Wisdom | Nothing New Under The Sun | June 2019 Highlight

The Word...
“All things are full of labour; man cannot utter it: the eye is not satisfied with seeing, nor the ear filled with hearing. The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun.”
Ecclesiastes‬ ‭1:8-9‬ ‭KJV‬‬

The Wisdom...
"All things are full of labour; man cannot utter it"... this means no matter how much success you obtain in life, you'll never be satisfied. "That which is done is that which shall be done"...History merely repeats itself. "There is no new thing under the sun."... It has all been done before, it's our destiny!

The Way I See It...
As a professional's, we work so hard for more in life! Once we reach our goals we set another and another... we're never satisfied!

Many leaders believe it's our ambition that drives us, to never stop! I believe it's our drive to see more of the planet we share, embracing the different cultures. Listening to the sounds in nature. Understanding with love the many voices of people around us in our world!

Unfortunately, the majority of us, will still never be satisfied even after that experience.  We as human beings can't 100% be Happy, no matter how religious or wealthy we become. It takes a true balance of spirit, mind, and body in order to live life happily & balanced.

Remember as we achieve our dreams in life. We must... "realize history merely repeats itself. " As we get older, we collect those experiences to share with generations to come. I've realized that their's "nothing under the sun which is truly new! It's just something from the past, innovative for the future...

Good June 2018 Smartpreneur...Reading Is Important

Good Day #SMARTpreneurs!
It's a beautiful day here in #NYC! It's also a beautiful day to start reading that book you want to read! Knowledge is power, so use it!

Each and every morning I read a book. It's one of the most important parts of my day! I use a three-step method in order to secure the knowledge from a book in my head.
First, I read the entire book without highlighting. Usually, I speed read through the book to see if I like it. (Please take some speed reading classes there is too much information in the world to read slow)

Second, I read the book again. When I read the book this time, I study it, using different color highlighters to indicate the importance of the information.
Third, I read the book again. This time when I read the book, I write notes and comments on what the book means to me.

So far I've read over 50 books using this method over the past 2 years. So try it out and see if it works for you.

April 2018 Smartpreneurs Quote of The Month


Here’s the most popular quote for April 2018

"The only place where success comes before work is in the dictionary."

Words of Wisdom: Better Is Little With Righteousness | May 2019 Highlight

“Better is a little with righteousness than great revenues without right. How much better is it to get wisdom than gold! and to get understanding rather be chosen than silver!
-Proverbs 16:8, 16 KJV

How I See It...
"As humans, we all seek more in life...In America, we're taught the American Dream...Beautiful House, Car, Bike, Boat and Retirement. In the pursuit of the American Dream, we get caught up on seeking "great revenues" to build this dream. The problem is too many people lie, cheat and steal their way to this dream. They don't realize their future results is a great misfortune.

"Better is Little with righteousness" meaning it's better to create your lifestyle the right way by helping people achieve their goals as you achieve yours. We're so busy in the pursuit of success, we forget to be wise in all our choices. It's better to have a little house and car you've worked hard for, then a mansion you stole for!

"How much better is it to get wisdom than gold" Wisdom comes from listening and was founded on righteousness! Many times we've sought our dreams, without wisdom. It's the reason why during the attempt to achieve goals we fail.

Wisdom comes from season advice...Remember that time, someone told you to do something but you did the opposite and the results were bad! Wisdom was talking, but you weren't listening.

"Get understanding rather than chosen than silver" People don't listen to each other because they don't "understand" each other. It's sad but most people don't listen to themselves or seek understanding of life. What's your purpose? What's your destiny? Who are you? What will you become?

Good May 2018 Smartpreneur...Project Completion

Good May #SMARTpreneurs! 
It's the middle of the week, so put those final touches on that #project! Your almost their, #determination is your key to succeeding.  Each task or project you complete brings you one step closer to success.

I know personally, the price of success is not easy. It entails dedication to the job and determination whether you win or lose.

As great as life might look over the years from the public view. I've lost a lot over years for keeping my dream alive! But I understand to achieve anything it requires a core belief, faith, hope, hard work, vision and a lot of determination.

I leave with this, nothing in this world can stop persistence and determination towards your goals. You can be the most talented, a genius or well educated and life will still not move. Calvin Coolidge said it best... "There is a more common unsuccessful man with talent...Unrewarded genius is almost a proverb...and the world is full of educated derelicts" Think About It!

Good April 2018 Smartpreneur...Purpose

Good April #SMARTpreneurs!
Thank God its Monday! Another whole week to complete the goals you set for the month. We all get #burnout sometimes working, but let's learn how to get passed the #burnout!

Please understand, burnout is what happens to you when you lose your purpose on what you are working on. Do you know it's possible to be so busy, that we lose the purpose and reason behind what we do? People don't realize, if you lose your purpose, you will lose your passion. Without passion, you will burn out!

How do we prevent burnout and recover from it? "Where there is a will, there is a way"! Remember when you lose your way, you lose your will! So remind yourself of your purpose behind what you do, create a plan towards conquering your goals and overcoming the challenges.
No matter how burnout you might be, you can get back up! Think About It!

Words Of Wisdom | To Know Wisdom and Instruction | April 2019 Highlight

Today's Words of Wisdom is entitled "To Know Wisdom & Instruction"

Please understand the point of this series is for you to apply principles you where taught from your spiritual foundation. The following lessons I've learned is my interpretation of my spiritual foundation and I challenge you to interpret your own.

Words Of Wisdom 1#
“To know wisdom and instruction; to perceive the words of understanding; To receive the instruction of wisdom, justice, and judgment, and equity;”

How I See It...

"No matter what you believe in, there is "Good & Evil". Good people seek to be wise and learn from life's mistakes. So many people stay in a circle because they never gather understanding from life's lessons. In order to have an extraordinary life, you must be willing to receive the instruction of wisdom, justice, and judgment to become a better person. Always fighting for the equity of others as you grow your success!"

Good March 2018 Smartpreneur...Movement

Good March Smartpreneurs!
Hopefully, your week got off to a great start! If not its time to get up and make some moves!  Most people don't understand that #movement is key to results! So how do we create a movement towards success?

As an entrepreneur, you must understand you're a leader and leaders are responsible for creating a positive movement around them at all times. The biggest test of an entrepreneur is that they must have the ability to make things happen! You must have the ability to take the people around you, from where they are, to where they need to be.

Now before you create movement. You must stop and take a look at yourself! Are you someone that a person wants to follow? If not, it will be hard for you to establish a movement. You must implement and develop your vision, lead by example in your life. Establishing movement in your on life allows you to lead by example, teaching the vision and creating the culture around the movement. Think About It!

Good February 2018...Delegate

Good February #SMARTpreneurs!
We are at the 50-yard line! Let's go the touchdown! Teamwork can help you execute those goals faster. You must learn how to #delegate, how do we use #delegation towards effectively achieving our goals?

First, you must explore your weaknesses & strengths in your life and move towards the goals you set. Is it time, money, or skills? You must identify the gaps between yourself and achieving your goals.
You must delegate to people who excel. You must find people who are smarter than you. Who you can trust to get the job done. I know those good people are hard to find but keep on looking!

Now as you delegate tasks, make sure to check on the people you choose. No matter how good a person is at their job. They still need to be monitored for maximum performance.  You need to make sure the assignment is done right and on-time.

Enclosing no man is an island and nothing is done by one man. When one man tries to do everything he's on the verge of insanity! Delegate and empower people to get the job done!

Happy New Year 2018 Smartpreneurs...Transition

Happy New Year & Good Monday Morning #SMARTpreneurs!
What a beautiful day here in the city and the first Monday of 2018. So as we all transition into a new month this week. Think about what is the next transition in your life needed for next month. How do you transition successfully?

Time waits for no, one period! You must be willing to transition towards what is going to make you successful in this season. 

I have the privilege of working with both established and startups organization. The biggest challenge for my established organizations is a transition to social media and emerging technologies. Most believe if it's not broke, don't fix it! This mindset stops them from transitioning toward new opportunities.

Many of my startups don't really know what transition means. What is a transition? The transition is not you running away from your problem in business. See when you run from your problems, you have no purpose and no passion. Transition means you are going towards something better, than what you already had. You face the challenges and embrace the tools needed towards success!
