Happy Father's Day

My father is my corner man. I've expressed before how he always speaks about life as if it were a boxing ring.

 Doing what we do best... Relaxing. Grilling. Talking.

You can be the best, have the talent and the dream, but without a corner man you're at a disadvantage.

My parents are educators and have spent their lives encouraging me, learning about the media business and keeping up with my progress!

 I can't thank them enough for the strength to go through the motions. On this #FathersDay I thank my dad for all his love, strength and most importantly, ADVICE!

There is a reason why people say "the older, the wiser."

Below are the top 5 things my father has taught me. Even today he continues to remind me of these when times get tough.

1. Gratitude

Always remember there is a higher power. You need to count your blessings and never forget where you came from.

2. Positive thinking

"Doubt" will get you every time, so remember to dream. It's the first step to making it a reality.

3. Accountability

Aside from putting your mind to things you want to do.  Remember to live by your word. If you say you will do something, you need to follow through.

4.  Be assertive

Don't be afraid to ask. If you live thinking about  the consequences or, "what if it doesn't work?" you'll never succeed!

You need to live in the "now" because you don't know about tomorrow.

5. Challenges build character

There is a lesson to be learned out of every failure. Even if you can't see it, plan to grow and always remember it's only a sign that bigger things await you.

 Thank you dad for raising me to be all of the above and reminding me that a little sweat never hurt anybody.
