Charles shares incredible stories of resiliency, determination, and success from his journey. Raised on welfare in a drug house in the projects of Oakland, CA by a drug addicted mother, and having lost his father to murder at the age of 10, he seemed destined for a life of trauma and despair. But instead of succumbing, he surmounted, navigating the pitfalls on his path to becoming a highly accomplished human resources, financial, and resilience expert. His intense focus and drive has lifted him from poverty and debt to financial freedom, while fueling his life’s purpose to use his mess as a message that helps, inspires, and motivates others.
