I Put On For My City

I learned something new from a client's concert that I attended recently. Although, we were probably 30 years a part we were in sync with his hit song…"I Put On For My City"! When you give back…you put on for your city!

One Size Does Not Fit All

Trusting an online document company for a generic prepared will to protect your family is just like saying "one size fits all". On November 8, 2016, the United States elected a new president and on June 23, 2016 the British voted to leave the European Nation - Brexit!

Why 8 is Great!

Every four years we the people decide what person will become the chief representative of our country and of our state. We also make decisions as to who will sit on judicial benches, who will become federal and state legislators, and who will serve as city council members and county commissioners.

With all of the important events and things that are associated with voting, it is incomprehensible when I hear people say they are not going to vote.

(Yep, I said it) Sometimes they misuse this authority to govern other people, when actually the purpose of an HOA is to implement rules and govern neighborhoods for the upkeep and maintenance of their neighborhood

David & Goliath

As a training exercise, the fire department burned down a house in my neighborhood. I later found out that the forty year old home was now in a flood zone and therefore would be demolished anyway. I can't help but talk about floods, especially after this past week's deluge of rainfall that crippled our city, the Caribbean island of Haiti, along with other southern cities in the path of Hurricane Matthew.

Roll Back Pews and Step on Toes

Just like the Panthers are looking for answers these days after a rough start to the season, our city is in a similar place; looking for answers to the issues affecting our town. Recently our kids had the opportunity to spend the evening with former CEO of Bank of America, Hugh McColl through his stewardship of the arts and giving at the Mint Museum..

Your Slip is Showing Charlotte

"Your slip is showing" is an old folks euphemism to say, now the whole world knows what you are up to! My narrative reads similar to so many young black men today, but in a different context….
