Favorite Success Quote
“When you take care of the present, the future takes care of itself.”
Growing up in New Orleans I was an avid football fan from the age of 5 until 23 and I became known as “Football Shaun”. That’s just how into it I was. So having such an incredible desire and passion to play in the NFL. I worked, & worked and worked to try to make that happen, but my last year in college I was suffered an hamstring injury that set me back. Gave it some time, then tried it again and became re-injured. This happened about 3 times and that’s when I started to realize that maybe this wasn’t what God wanted for me. Never the less, I was devastated because I had never loved anything as much as football except my mom. To have it all taken away from me I was heart broken and I felt like a failure. I even fell into a deep depression and at one point I felt like I didn’t anything to live for and wanted to take my life. Until I received a phone call from an amazing friend that convinced me that I was being selfish and told me to “Battle Back.” From that moment 10 years ago until now, I battle back through every adversity.
Entrepreneurial “Light Bulb” Moment
After overcoming my adversity of taking my life. My family had pretty much counted me out. Until one day in March 2008, I had an opportunity to have a speaking role in a major film. While on set with all of these A-List stars, one of the actors came up to me and encouraged me by saying, “You’re gonna be really great at this. Keep going, don’t give up because you’re really good at a this. Keep Fighting. You’re doing a terrific job even if anyone hadn’t told you yet.” It was in that moment that I had that “Ah-Ha” moment. I realized for the first time that I can be something GREAT! From that moment on, I went to land role and role and role.
