And i have a few other fires that will be upcoming that i can’t speak on yet but stay tuned.
What are some obstacles you’ve had to overcome? One of my biggest obstacles was furthering my football career. Coming out of high school i did not have the grade or the act score to go division one. Not because I’m the smartest but just because i was lazy and didn’t think that I needed it. Once i found out it was two late. I didn’t take the act until my last semester junior year and only made a 18. So i was force to go to junior college if i wanted to further my career. My freshman year there i was suspended after the second game of the season for something that was out of my control so i pretty much though it was over. But god gave me a second chance which allowed my to play my sophomore season in which i played good enough to be offered to play at a few division one schools. 2014 i graduated for western kentucky and begun training for the nfl. At that time i pulled both hamstrings during a workout for a team that was another major set back. Most people pull one i pulled both so the recovery time was double. It was then when i realized that if i wanted to still achieve goals that i had for myself i may need to go another route. I begun starting businesses many that failed or that i gave up on. Which I shouldn’t have done but I was young and didn’t know any better. But luckily I didn’t give up on the process fully which allowed me to succeed in a few and put me in the position that i’m in today.
