A Bit About Me

Well, I didn't grow up with a silver spoon in my mouth but I did have the foundation of God's word. As I have taught for over two decades, God has a great plan for each of us.  Our mission, should we choose to accept it, is to reach our highest potential and help others do the same.

From a heart of serving, I realized that true learning is not head to head but heart to heart. I earn the privilege to pour into your life because of relationship. I truly care about your success and influence in the lives of others. So, I look forward to developing a beneficial relationship by giving you quality products and services and expecting the same excellence in return.

I'm passionate about our youth!  I believe if we train them now, we won't have to fix them later. More should be invested in our youth. It's not wasteful, it's an investment in our future.

The subject of money makes many cringe. With a solid background in solving problems and understanding finances, I've sought to help others gain control and not be taken by the systems of this world.


When going to college, I realized that tuition increased every year. So I set out to graduate from Georgia Tech in 3 years. It wasn't to be identified but to save money for my family knowing my brother was only two years behind me. 

I find bargains and cuts wherever they lurk. Just say Sally (Sale) and Clarissa (Clearance) are my best friends and they should be yours too.

You know when you are looking for truly biblically based content and struggle locating transformative information... You search the usual channels but are inundated with secular books on subject of finance, youth, leadership and the like... You are exasperated because you want good material not only for yourself but for your tribe, your congregation, your school.  


Well, I help educate Christian who believe God's word but struggle applying it.  I come alongside the Pastors, Parents and Universities to produce textbooks, videos and courses to assist in the development and education of the assembly and family.  I conduct workshops, seminars and speak at events to encourage and impact for maximum transformation.  I help them live  an abundant life and become beacons of light for others.
