TO THE CLASS OF 2020 – A ZULUECHO FILM

TO THE CLASS OF 2020 – It’s really difficult to put into words all the emotions and feelings I’ve felt the last few weeks. As graduating students all over the world finished up their semesters there was this empty feeling of knowing that this years’ graduations would not be the same. Although my degree program…

Featured in Syracuse University Blackstone LaunchPad

I was honored and humbled to be featured twice in Syracuse University’s Blackstone LaunchPad over the last few months. Jalen Nash wrote an amazing piece about how triumph comes from overcoming struggle, and the importance of taking on our challenges as a means of forcing us to transform and grow.

“Swimming in Circles” – A FiberCast Highlight

Today I want to share the last of a series of highlights tied to an interview I did on Caley Lacerda’s “FiberCast” Podcast a few months ago. This one is incredibly important as it relates to mental health, burnout, and the need to prioritize our mental peace by finding a balance between hard work, and…

Fresh Air

I’ve been quiet for some time. Seems like just yesterday I was writing an article a week with conviction and drive… what happened? Well I needed a break. I needed to remember why I write. I needed to ensure that I felt my writing was bringing value to my life and to yours, not simply…

“ZULUECHO Initiative” explained on FiberCast Podcast

I’m often asked why I started ZULUECHO Initiative, what it means and what the “big idea” behind the movement is. I always love answering this question because it allows me to take people through my own “BREAKTHROUGH” moment in 2017 – the process by which I realized that I wanted to start ZULUECHO Initiative. Last…

THINK big – Google maps…?

I’d like to start today’s article with a little update about where my head is at with regards to my articles. 2019 taught me valuable lessons about consistency and how it can really help somebody grow and scale their business, initiative, project or whatever passion they are pursuing. It also taught me, however that consistency…

Story Time

I’d be lying if I said that the last 24 hours have not felt kind of strange. Many of you may know what I’m talking about but for those that don’t I will try to put words to it. Before I do so, however, I need to tell you a short story about my day…

Problem Solving through Design

I recently had the absolute pleasure of being featured on Caley Lacerda’s Podcast “FiberCast” as part of his overall Fiber Fitness Project. Caley dedicates this podcast to people he considers to be “disruptors” and non traditional thinkers. “A podcast by Outliers, for Outliers”. Apart from expressing my gratitude to Caley for having me on the…

Growth through self awareness

Growth is something we all experience. Whether consciously or not, we do. You’re not the same person you were 5 years ago, nor the same person you were 2 weeks ago. There are some things we notice about ourselves as signs of growth. Things about our routines or lifestyles that have change so drastically that…
