A Look Back on 2017…

Whew, what a year! I’m a firm believer in looking back to get ahead. In business we look back to assess our performance for the year. Often it’s even mandated. Why not apply the same principles to your own personal life. So, here are a few of my major points in 2017.

Nova Southeastern University Recognition

Amazed but as always, all things work together for good. Met some great people as I did the research to help others learn the traits and strategies of how leaders achieved success, and how the ambitious can also become successful. Looking forward to helping youths, ethnic minorities and those in need in the new year.

Book Signings

Book signings, interviews, and giving back to our community were a big part of my theme in 2017. Giving thanks for partnership with Writers of Color, that paved the way to various  community centers and libraries in South Florida. Other signings were held in New York, and Washington DC. Deeper exploration continues in the new year.

New Book – GreenLight

Stay tuned for my new book titled GreenLight, slated for early release in 2018. It will include inspirational writings, exhortations, prayers, and the confidence needed when individuals are confronted with changes and transitions along life’s journey.

Documentary Video on Success

Documentary video created on the campus of Nova Southeastern University. It depicted the discussion on immigrants sharing their views on Success. Learn more in published book on Success Strategies of Immigrant Leaders in the United States. Kudos to KC Films & Media for creating video.

Live Interviews with Entrepreneurs on Success

Conducted a series of Live interviews with millennials and Entrepreneurs around the globe. They shared their stories on the steps they used to achieve success for the benefit of those who are afraid to make the leap to do what they have always wanted to do.

30 Under 30 Millennials

Always a pleasure to lead the panel of judges at the 30 Under 30 Millennials who are making distinctive leadership ventures across the United States and the Caribbean. Event is held by the Institute of Caribbean Studies in Washington DC. The Inter-American Development Bank (IDB), Washington DC, hosted the event.

Inaugural Goal-Setting Retreat

Inaugural Retreat held at Captiva Island in South Florida. Participants engaged in creating goals for 2018, as well as strategies to help achieve them progressively in the months to come.

Time with My Girls

As always the year was filled with travels but my greatest personal memory was that shared with my girls when we visited New Orleans. Just leave it to my oldest who is Almost an Extravagant lover of traveling and gaining new experiences. Tons of smiles as we went live at Essencefest with Queen Latifah and the Cozy cast of  ‘Girl’s Trip‘, made the visit all the more fun. How about you? What was your favorite experience in 2017?

Finally, looking back on the past 12 months, the memories made and the goals tackled, I am truly thankful. I now look forward to the future and the expectations ahead. Can’t wait to see how it unfolds. Here’s to you and your family as we wish you health, peace, and hope that all will be well in 2018, and beyond.

Happy New Year to you!

  1. 2017 was a challenging but wonderful year. Any of the college memories created or family memories or Christmas and New Year memories. In terms of theatre, saw three musical and was house manager for four shows at school. The musicals were Little Shop of Horrors, Rent, and Les Mis and only loved two of them, which were Rent and Les Mis.

    I had loved Rent for five years and this year was my 1st time seeing it live. So it was quite special. I saw it with my parents and we sat like in the enter of Mezzaine and those seats were perfect. I was an emotional wreck watching it, but worth it.

    Les Mis: this was my 5th time seeing it live. I had seen Les MIs 3x at community and 1x in the West End so this was my 1st time seeing it on tour. It saw it in Greenville with my school. We were in the balcony and my seat was towards the center. This was the 25th anniversary production and I loved it so it did live up to the West End production in its own way. Just like Rent, was an emotional wreck. I am a huge Les Mis fan so I am glad I got to see it a 5th time
