“Control your emotions or they will be controlled for you.” - Rashad "Bowtie" Mills
Today's featured author is licensed therapist, broadcast journalist, radio host and motivational speaker, Rashad "Bowtie" Mills. Rashad and I talk about his new book, the story behind it and lessons he learned from 101 days of extreme self-development.
You always have to invest and re-invest in your book after it’s published.
Some things are meant to happen in their own time.
The book you intend to write may end up as a different book that others may need to read.
Growth is possible for everyone.
An educated man of color has a higher chance of going to jail once they are in court because of your status as a successful and educated black man.
You are more resilient than you believe and your moments of “hell” help you discover it when you overcome it.
Don’t be stuck on your past so much that you don’t move forward to a bigger future.
