"Waiting to Fail" provides a front seat ride for readers, while I navigate through the twists and turns of my life up until now. Buckle up! The journey begins at age nine when my next door neighbor's father looked me in the eyes and said, "boy, you ain't gonna be nothin'." We then reverse, traveling back to my years as a young child (2-3 yrs) and I share my experiences about growing up without a father and having a mother that was addicted to crack cocaine, which led me to be raised by my grandmother. Then we are full steam ahead, pedal to the metal, while I serve as a tour guide showing you my childhood, teenage years, my experience of walking on to the OSU football team, my NFL experience, business ideas, and much more.
I didn't write this book just to tell my story. Everyone has a story. I wrote this book, more so, to inspire and encourage others, through my story, to strive to reach their goals, while not letting the fear of failure hold them back. I have been blessed to reach some of my goals and dreams in life, and I have a passion of helping others reach theirs (click here to see other efforts of giving back). Throughout my life I have come acorss many individuals who desire to start a business, change careers, go to college, etc., but simply have a fear of failure. "Waiting to Fail" offers a unique perspective and mindset on failure, while motivating the reader to reach their full potential.
With your help, I will literally be able to put this message into the hands and hearts of people all across the globe. I thank you in advance for your support!
