Columbia, SC – SOCO Bull Street

I invite you to join me and other entrepreneurs as we map out proven strategies for powerful modern business leadership and growth. It’s time to lead. It’s time to grow. It’s time to profit!

I believe success is the result powerful leadership. It’s having the audacity to accept the responsibility of transforming what is, into what could be. I embraced that responsibility as a 4-years old telling myself that no-one or nothing would stop me from greatness. That within me existed something that was more than the insurmountable challenges in front of me.

35 years later that declaration has given me and those I love and lead more than I could have ever hoped for. From escaping the ghetto streets of Oakland California to becoming a first-generation college grad earning an Ivy League degree. To building my first business 4E Consulting and then becoming Jr. Partner at BJM Solutions, a nationally recognized economic harm analysis firm. To becoming a professional athlete, mentor, coach, and now consultant to other powerful and successful leaders on the RISE.

How did I do this?  Leadership! Maybe you can relate because you too hear the same calling to lead yourself and those you love? Maybe you see the direction of your life, your community, and this world and know that someone has to lead… And it might as well be you. If you agree and are on the path of leading, growing, and profiting, please know this about your RISE as a leader….

Powerful Leadership
Requires Powerful Training

The type of training that prepares you for the modern game of business and entrepreneurship. Training that helps you marry business growth strategy with powerful leadership that inspires, motivates, and creates follow-ship. It’s the synergy of these two distinct worlds that separate struggling business owners from those who profit and prosper. At Rise – Lead – Grow- Profit, I will share how I’ve helped hundreds of businesses owners just like you to transform their business and leadership life. Don’t miss it!



The modern leader is a visionary with a message that resonates, empowers, and creates deep followship. The type of followship that aligns purpose, people, power, and ultimately drives profits.



Everyone wants to be successful and make more money, but few are willing to grow to do it. The type of 360° Growth that synergizes personal leadership and sound modern business strategy.



Purpose, no matter how important, will always perish without profit. So as modern business owners and movement-makers, it’s our duty to profit to keep our purpose alive and to provide for those we love and lead.

How We Help Leaders Rise

To Lead It You Must Live It.

We’ve streamlined our program to help leaders rapidly grow through a series of Living Leadership experiences. These experiences unfold over 6 simple but powerful steps.

Out of the Box Leadership Training & Workshops

Great leaders are great not from what they know, but rather from what they LIVE, activate, and make real. That’s why at Rise of a Leader we integrate experiential Living Leadership to go beyond talking heads and theory-based approaches. We help our leaders activate knowledge through immersive experiences that produce “right now results.” Or said different, nothing is taught that isn’t actively used and LIVED. So as you prepare to attend your workshop expect a jam-packed experience full of real challenges that result in real solutions and real actions.

Typically, there are 3 training days broken up as needed to accommodate the group.

  • Workshop #1: Live It to Lead It: Attend your first full day workshop where you and other leaders learn how great leaders “Live It to Lead It.” You’ll experience firsthand how to activate new levels of leadership to overcome your biggest challenges (whatever they may be) through the simple but powerful Living Leadership framework. It’s truly an unforgettable out-of-the-box experience. #training #workshop #living #leadership

  • Workshop #2: New Challenges – New Heights: Attend your second full day workshop where you and other leaders share successes, failures, and explore new plans of attack. The emphasis is to help you design, test, and activate solutions to your biggest challenges. In short, you’ll leave not only more confident but with momentum and proof of how you’ll continue to RISE through the program. #learn #adapt #grow #betterResults

  • Workshop #3: Graduation / Gateway to Greatness: Attend your final full day training where you’ll receive your exit assessment results that detail how you’ve RISEN as a leader. You’ll also map out the next 6-12 months of your leadership life. And last but not least, you’ll celebrate with other leaders at the graduation dinner. It’s a night to honor your accomplishments and watch the unveiling of the Rise of a Leader Documentary for your cohort.  #celebrate #review #future #plan
