I've learned a lot over the years.  I've made mistakes that I didn't think I could recover from.  All of it has humbled me and made me appreciate this journey.

 Life is a journey with problems to solve, choices to make and things to learn.  

I want to share my experiences, wisdom and challenges with you.  

I'm an American griot. I am also internationally known as the Black Man with a Gun (TM).  Thanks for listening, downloading and subscribing to this show.  I'm hoping to entertain, inspire and make you smarter from the things I've done and still trying to do. 

I'm into fishing, motorcycles, cigars, family, music, guitars, guns and typical "man stuff."  If you are, come join me here. 

It's not all old stuff either.  I'm here to learn and grow.


“When you know better, you can do better.”


Rev Kenn Blanchard

There are many reasons we get discouraged and lose our motivation. It can happen at any age or stage of life. Dreams are what fuel us. When we don't have any daily motivation to drive us, we become bored or worse. Once we become stagnant, we get regretful.  We get angry.  We get stuck.  You could be incredibly talented, have the best contacts, and have a ton of experience, but they aren’t going to do you any good if you aren’t using them. One of the things I want to introduce on this podcast and blog is to occasionally introduce to some something you have heard of but may have never tried.

One of the ways you can stay active mentally, stay fresh is to learn and try new things. 

I have a small list but I want to share it with you.  Maybe what I share is not for you, but you will miss 100% of the opportunities you don’t take.  Why?  Because over time, all of us lose our desire to try new things.  Over time we become complacent and fearful of failure.  Over time we become stagnant.  Even fresh water starts to stink after a while if it just sits there.

Some of us are struggling with the feeling of being overwhelmed.  We struggle with this issue because we know we are supposed to do something, but the what has us puzzled.  When your life is out of focus, your internal engine shuts down.  You lose your mojo.  You stop caring.  The longer you put something off, the harder it is to get it done? That’s because inaction fuels procrastination.

It comes down to the way our minds work. Our minds aren’t designed to coast.


Listen in to this great man and I talk about mindset and his life.
