Please describe what you do for a living.
I wear many hats! I am a Captain with the Broward Sheriff’s Office in Florida; a Real Estate Agent/Investor/Property Manager and a Adjunct Instructor at Broward College. My main areas of focus are leadership, mentoring and real estate.
What inspired you to start your career?
I love mentorship and assisting others to accomplish their dreams.
What have been some of the challenges you have faced in your career?
At some point in my life I was my biggest challenge. FEAR (False Evidence Appearing Real). Once I realized that EVERYTHING starts and ends with your mindset, I made a decision to keep a healthy MINDSET!
What skills have you used to pull it all together?
In order to stay in a positive space I use the tools of meditating, praying, reading, and journaling. I also love exercising and watching to positive videos. These things help me maintain healthy and positive relationships. I made a commitment to make the current day my BEST day.
What are main keys to being a great leader in your community?
SERVING! When you serve you please God. True leaders serve; Service prevails over status. Leadership is measured by how much VALUE is added to others. SERVE, INSPIRE, MOTIVATE, ENCOURAGE;, MENTOR, GUIDE, AND COACH.
A true leader walks in the front to clear the way; walks alongside to show the way, but most importantly walks behind to push the team to WIN!
A true Leader should showcase the Teams efforts, but stand in the shadows during the victory!! Leaders must care for the team and be TRUSTED by all TEAMMATES! ACCOUNTABILITY; CONSISTENCY; TRANSPARENCY COMMUNICATION are key! Bless others looking for nothing in return.
