You often here about Life Coaches and people who want to motivate you to get your life in order and together. Many people watch and read books about Iyanla Vanzet and watch Dr. Phil seeking answers to help fix the brokenness in there but let’s be honest how many of you listen to their advice and how many of you follow what they say. Now I have been a bit skeptical myself about these people who want to fix us and that was until I encountered someone who literally practices what they preach. I first read about him in the 9th edition of B.O.S.S.E-Magazine. So I dig a little digging to see what this brother was all about and to tell you the truth I was INTRIGUED! I love what he stood and I respected where he came from, because honestly I’m not the type to take advice from people who believe they are God’s gift and seek the dollar more than they seek to help. So I had to interviewed him and see what he was all about.
