On June 18, 2015, I was fired by my employer at a Lunch Meeting. My son was 2 years old and my wife was 7 months pregnant with our second child. It was Father's Day weekend! That weekend, I got hungry and committed to living the Professional Speaking Dream I had been "talking" about for years.
I used the skills I earned as a college student leader, award-winning toy store manager, employee trainer, salesperson, entertainer and college professional to turn my career defeat into the ultimate win...I founded my own company, Frank Kitchen Enterprises! With the support of my family, friends, and former students, I developed the “I Live F.R.E.S.H.” recipe I now teach to my audience and clients around the world.
When I'm not speaking, I practice what I teach by volunteering with the Non-Profit organization Hustle PHX as a Board Member and mentor for aspiring entrepreneurs; and by raising millions of dollars annually for non-profits as one of the First African American Fundraising Ambassadors/Auctioneers in the world.
