Lauryn Williams

Lauryn Williams is one of five athletes to have won a medal in both the Summer and Winter Olympic games, as well as the first American woman with this achievement. Lauryn holds one Gold and Two Silver Medals from the 2004,2012, and 2014 Olympics Games.  One of the reasons I wanted to have Lauryn on the show was to launch into Black History Month with a Millenial who’s made a positive impact on African-American culture.

Outside of sports Lauryn has mastered the game of finance by obtaining her CFP.  She now teaches other Millenials and Professional Athletes about personals finance and building wealth for the future. 

Not only are her achievements great in their own right she’s in a unique position to have solidified a place in Olympic history for all time.   As a people, we’re proud of Lauryn and of course, she’s represented our Nation and brought back Gold and Silver.  Share this episode with your daughters and sons so they can see what’s possible with hard work and that Black History Month isn’t just a once a year tradition that happens in February.   Look to these 2108 Olympic Games and whatever your culture, celebrate the athletes you identify with but then let us all (at least my US friends) celebrate as Americans.

I work with Podbean to help some of the largest companies in the world.  I’m all in on Podcasting as you know and I recommend that if you don’t have a podcast that you consider my recommendation to try out Podbean for 30 days risk-free trial.   Just click the following link to check them out: 

If you’ve booked time with me, you know my 10-minute triage calls then you’ve used my scheduling link.  It’s a service that’s good and I didn’t have any real complaints except it’s on the expensive side.  I’ve used Schedule Once since I started podcasting so I’m pretty vested in it, but it’s time to say goodbye. 

It’s all Noah Kagen’s fault, that’s right!  If not for AppSumo I would have never discovered Book Like a Boss.  I picked it up on a Sumo Deal => Check them here: Here’s the page: Vernon’s Book Like A Boss Page

I have a special link I can send to my podcast guest to schedule and it all goes on my calendar!  Not only is it more affordable than using Schedule Once,   I’ve already had conversations with the CEO and love they are working on even more enhancements based on user suggestions.   Until Valentin’s Day, you can get 40% off with this link, Get the Deal I would love to know what you think about my page.  Don’t worry if you’re not interested in buying it but want to try it out first just click the view all the plans on the page and sign-up for free.


If I had this book as a young awkward kid, I wouldn’t of felt so alone in the world. – Marketia

As an author As, to hear those words about work I’ve produced and the story I told in Master Your Message was extremely powerful.

In Master Your Message, I  lead you through my journey to find my voice.  The difficulties, challenges, and revelations I had along the way.  I’ve also included a few very notable mentors that were key in my writing journey, Chris Brogan, Patrice Washington and Matthew Turner.  It would mean the world to me if you would click below to grab your copy of Master Your Message.

If you can’t buy a copy all I ask is that you phone your local library and request a copy.  It’s available in every library in America.
