My father was a drug dealer and a pimp — a real pimp who put women on the street corner. My mother was a young woman from an orphanage who had no family, money or support. There’s no gentle way to describe it: My childhood was a hardscrabble affair marked by dramatic incidents of racism, drug abuse and neglect.

Today I lead an Evergreen company, Book in a Box, which helps people tell their own stories.

My mom loved me, but we were terribly poor, and she faced a lot of prejudice in ’70s Dayton, Ohio, as the unmarried white mother of a half-black child. One of my earliest memories is of returning home from the bus stop with my mom and seeing all our belongings lying on the curb outside our apartment. The landlord was outside yelling, “No nigger-lovers can live here.” I remember sitting on that curb crying.

When I turned 9, a complicated welfare issue forced me to move in with my dad, and those years were complete chaos. On a regular basis, I watched him beat women and bring home heroin-addicted prostitutes. They would force me to babysit some of my little half-siblings (my father had 23 children) as they brought johns back to the apartment. Once my father abruptly moved to England for a year, and left me with a prostitute and three of my half-siblings who were 4, 2 and 1 years old. The prostitute said she was going to get cigarettes, but didn’t return for three weeks. I had to teach the 4-year-old to babysit while I stole food. We had no diapers so I had to potty train the little ones. I remember stealing three Oreos for my little sister’s third birthday. When the prostitute finally came home, I asked where she had been, and she punched me so hard I fell to the floor. I was 12 years old.

That was when I left and started living on the streets. I lived in a bus stop for a while, but eventually ended up in juvenile detention for three months before an uncle took me in. My mother tracked me down when I was 15 and moved me back in with her, this time in San Antonio, Texas. I was in 10th grade, but testing at a fifth-grade level. I struggled through a couple rounds of summer school before finally graduating. A janitor handed me my diploma, and that was the end of my formal schooling.

After graduation, I received my call to action: My mom gave me two weeks to find a job. I found work cleaning toilets and tables at a local restaurant. The job was miserable and I longed to quit. But I never wanted to be on the streets again, so instead of complaining, I decided to be the best busboy and toilet cleaner in all of San Antonio. My toilets would sparkle, and my salt and peppers shakers would always be full. In a way, I found something better than a mentor: personal gratification in being successful at my job.

Thank god this youthful bout of optimism actually paid off. After about six months, a couple dining at the restaurant noticed my hard work and invited me to come make candles in their mall shop. I was earning more money and with lots of cute girls watching me through that window, I endeavored to be the best candlemaker there ever was.

I crossed the threshold into corporate life when my mother helped me land a job in the mail room where she had been working at Nationwide Mutual Insurance Company. Although my job was to sort mail, I treated it as an education, watching how the corporate people shook hands and communicated. It was so different than anything I had ever been exposed to — I memorized the cordial social cues.

But I didn’t see myself as having a future at this company. So when a friend told me about a job at a payday loan shop, even though it meant proofing deposit slips, one of the most tedious jobs there is, I took it. Right away I asked my manager what were the most reports ever proofed in a day — I doubled it the next, and continued to drive that number up.

Three months in, the owner took notice. He started teaching me about consumer finances and loans and, within a year, promoted me to a traveling vice president who checked on all the offices around the country. Eventually he sent me to Eugene, Oregon, where I was told to figure out how to open an office. I was 23.

I ran that office for three years and bought out two competitors. But I missed Texas, so I headed back down south. I ended up at Wachovia bank as a mortgage broker, just as the real estate crisis hit. It was the biggest ordeal of my career. I lost everything I had built up over the years. I was flat broke — no money to buy even new underwear or T-shirts.

By 2011, I found a job in sales as the lowest-paid employee at a software company. There I had a second chance and called upon my old work ethic. I knew nothing about software, but I did know how to sell and follow up on business relationships. I started calling the company's competitors to learn their pitches and taught myself how to sell software. Within seven months, I closed $1 million in sales — the year before they had $2.7 million in revenue, so this was not insignificant. I built relationships with large enterprise clients and climbed the executive ladder. In 2013, less than three years after I started, I became the company’s president. Under my steerage, we went from one office and 13 employees to over 100 employees and four offices, including one in Monterrey, Mexico.

I finally felt like I was reaping rewards in my professional life. But I still felt I had more to offer. I had come so far; I thought I could give back to the world by sharing the things I had learned along the way. I realized I wanted to write a book, and I reached out to Book in a Box, a company that helps people turn their ideas into books. It was a call that changed my life. With the company’s founder, Tucker Max, I wrote my memoir. I also ended up offering Book in a Box some advice about how to better manage and scale their company, and they invited me to join their board of advisers. One morning in 2016, they offered me the CEO position.

It was a job I gladly accepted, despite a dramatic pay cut. At the software company, I took only 11 days of vacation in five years. There’s a photo of me working on my laptop in the delivery room during the birth of my first child. It was very hard to leave the software company, but ultimately, I wasn’t passionate about software. On the other hand, at Book in a Box, I love hearing people’s stories; I love turning them into books. When I was a kid, I wasn’t even allowed to take books home with me because teachers were afraid we’d steal them.

I also love helping people find belief even in their darkest tales. And it helps me sort through my own conflicted thoughts on the people who populate my memories. My mom always told me to never judge anyone else — that everyone has a story.

Finally, I’m at peace with my father. I hadn’t spoken to him in 30 years, but I returned home to attend his funeral a couple years ago. It was a cathartic moment. After all, somehow I got to where I am today — perhaps because of, rather than in spite of, my roots.









The Mighty Dells are the most underrated R&B group of all-time and why hasn't "Unsung," dedicated an episode to them?




Originally, "The Five Heartbeats," wasn't based on the Dells.


Because the film was slated to be a comedy.


But when Robert Townsend mentioned 'comedy', Marvin Junior chimed in and said 'Hey, wait a minute, ain't nothing funny about being a black stand-up vocal group. It's a major struggle, and the struggle continues today'... Robert replied: 'Do you mind if I go on the road with the group? Because I like what I'm hearing so far'."


"He traveled with the Dells for the next six weeks. He watched their comraderie, he witnessed the arguments, saw their performances, rode on the tour bus, had dinner with the group. From these experiences, he changed the original script.

Marvin Junior: "The film was 85 % of our story. When it was in the theatres, it was not that successful, but when they put it on video and on television, it became very popular..."

"Don't let any other group or anybody else tell you that the movie was about them. Robert Townsend traveled with the Dells. I told Robert things, and he was taking it all in... So the story came from the Dells."



In 1955, the group renamed themselves the Dells and signed with Vee-Jay Records. In 1956, they recorded their first hit, "Oh, What a Night" (a song co-written by Johnny Funches, who also sang lead on the recording alongside Marvin Junior, which hit the Top 5 of the R&B singles chart. It sold over one million copies, and was awarded a gold disc. The song is ranked #260 on the Rolling Stone magazine's list of The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.


In 1958, the group crashed enroute to Philly.  Tenor Lucius McGill nearly lost a leg and lead baritone Marvin Junior's throat was slashed.



In 1966, they were hired to open for Ray Charles, only to be fired after a performance resulted in several standing ovations.


Subsequent R&B hits included "Stay In My Corner," and "Give Your Baby A Standing Ovation."



The group recorded a composition titled "A Heart Is a House for Love," off the Five Heartbeats soundtrack. The song reached number 13 on the Billboard R&B chart, making them and the Isley Brothers, the only two groups to have hit singles in five decades.


The Dells were inducted to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the Vocal Group Hall of Fame in 2004.





Halfway through "The Five Heartbeats," Townsend inserted a scene so striking it seems almost detached from everything else around it.

The Five Heartbeats, their career ascension not yet in high gear, are thumping along a Southern highway in an old station wagon. It's the nightly drill: Pack up in one small town, head to the next.

A flashing light approaches from behind. "What'd you do?" someone asks the driver. "Nothing," he says. He pulls over.

Some cops come forward and order the Heartbeats out of the car. Hands on the hood, boys, where we can see 'em. After ripping apart everything in the wagon and tossing it on the ground, the cops ask why they're here.


We sing, they say. The cops snicker. If you sing, boy, one says, let's hear it.

Hands on the hood of the car, flashlights in their eyes, their possessions tossed aside like trash, they sing.

It's an extraordinary scene, showing both the power and evil of the bully and the helplessness of the victim. The cops don't even fully realize what they've done: Taken the thing the Five Heartbeats do best and made it a symbol of humiliation.

"That happened," says Chuck Barksdale. Barksdale sings bass for the Dells, the real-life R&B group that has been together since 1953 and on whose story "The Five Heartbeats" is more than loosely based.

"We were driving along in the station wagon," says Barksdale. "The police stopped us and to prove who we were, they made us get out and sing."

The box-office success of "The Five Heartbeats" will probably hinge on how well viewers like the characters and the story. But moments like the "sing, boy" scene also put on the cinematic record a slice of real life that should not be forgotten: the conditions under which black entertainers carved out the largest building block of modern American popular music.

"They don't know about going into a town and not being able to get food at any restaurant," says Bo Diddley. "You had to know the cook so they could slip you something out the back."

Hotels? Forget it. There was a network of people, often including black deejays and promoters, whose homes formed an informal bed-and-breakfast network. Otherwise, artists slept on the move the station wagon or, if it was a package tour, the bus.


"After the show, you'd race to the bus to get one of the big seats," says Melvin Franklin of the Temptations. "I used to go for the luggage racks, because that was the only place I could stretch out."



Ruth Brown recalls one all-night bus ride -- no hotels available -- where Chuck Willis wrote "Oh What a Dream" for her on the back of a brown paper bag that had held fried chicken and french fries. No restaurants available. Brown recorded the song, it became a major R&B hit and just as it was about to become her first major pop crossover hit, Patti Page covered it and got the gig on "Ed Sullivan."

Black artists in the '50s and into the '60s were still largely working the last vestiges of the old black vaudeville circuit, TOBA, the Theater Owners Booking Association. It paid less than the white circuit and conditions were rough, but it was the only game in town -- steady work, a marginally living wage and a loyal audience.

On stage, in fact, it was OK. The trickier problems came off the stage, says Therman Ruth, who led the famous Selah Jubilee Singers for many years and had a brief spin with the R&B group the Larks in the early '50s. Much of the R&B/gospel circuit was in the South, where the protocol of segregation remained strict.


"One time in a Southern town when I took a drink from the white water fountain," says Ruth, "a policeman saw me and told me he'd put me in jail unless I caught the next train out of town and never came back. I told him, 'If you let me go, I'll catch the train yesterday.' We knew too many stories to mess with those people."

"Today, you see black singers and people like Robert Townsend, Eddie Murphy and Spike Lee making money. But for a long time, this system was not set up for blacks to reach great heights of either publicity or financial reward. A lot of artists had to pave the way to get to where we are now."







While in jail for income tax evasion, black policy kingpin Eddie Jones (top pic leaning on wall) became acquainted with Sam Giancana, a hit-man for hire among top Italian Mafia figures. Back on the streets, the men became friends. Eddie taught Sam everything he knew about the policy game and how to memorize number combinations, and even hired Sam to operate one of his many lucrative establishments.

Sam made his first fortune through Eddie. Aspiring to become a "made man", Sam shared his new knowledge of the policy game with the Dons, who were impressed. By then, the Italian Mafia focused their attention on the Jones market in the black community.

Under orders from the Dons, Sam was instructed to remove Jones from his lucrative position and take over. Initially, he was told to take Jones out of town and murder him but Sam just couldn't do it, instead, he negotiated with the Dons to let Jones live if he walked away from the policy racket. They agreed to do so.

Later, a better deal was negotiated. All three brothers agreed to stay out of the policy racket permanently in exchange for a $200,000 per year stipend from the Outfit, it was agreed upon.



This was odd behavior for Giancana (putting his neck out for a black man) because he got a kick of using racial slurs and epithets around Sammy Davis, Jr.  He loved to refer to Davis as coon and porch monkey.



And it's rumored that Giancana was so fond of Jones, that he even brought him around a young Marilyn Monroe on one occasion.


Over time, Sam Giancana masterminded a month-long shakedown campaign against the Black bookmakers of Chicago. Dozens were shot and others simply fled the city for ever.


Leaving his bar, Giancana deliberated bumped into policy king (Teddy Roe) and his entourage. “What are you doing in a black bar?” Roe asked Giancana. He answered, “I own it. And one day, I’m going to own you.” With Egos come tempers and "Roe turned into a raging bull, grabbing Giancana’s coat lapels and shouting, “Why you dirty motherfucker, I’ll fuckin’ kill you!” Sam Giancana's brother, Chuck, the bar manager, stepped up, pulled out their guns and shoved them into Roe’s ribs. Giancana warned, ”You’re over your head,” as he swaggered out of the bar. Giancana left without further event, but had his fill of Roe’s stubborn bravado and began planning his next move. One night, he told Chuck, “I’ve had it with Roe.



Teddy Roe, pictured above...(August 26, 1898 - August 4, 1952) was an African-American mob boss who built an illegal gambling empire in South Side, Chicago during the 1940s and 1950s. Roe earned the nickname "Robinhood" because of his philanthropy among the neighborhood poor. After refusing to pay "street tax" to the Chicago Outfit, Roe fatally shot a made man who had been ordered to assassinate him. In retaliation, Roe was murdered by an Outfit crew commanded by Sam Giancana on August 4, 1952.


Prior to his murder, Teddy Roe & The Jones Brothers joint policy wheels were netting over $1.2 million annually ($5 million annually in today's dollars-unheard of for black men in the 1940s), by 1946, the mob, seeking to move in on the Jones brothers and Roe, kidnapped Ed Jones and held him for a ransom that included $100,000 and a promise to relinquish his policy business. Ted Roe paid the $100,000 ransom but after Jones was released, he decided not to give up his share of the business. However, the Jones brothers fled to Mexico (due to the negotiations of Giancana), leaving the entire business to Ted.


Recent historians have pointed out that the overwhelming majority of the money collected from Teddy Roe's policy wheels went back into the community.



Later, John F. Kennedy and Sam Giancan's murders would be linked.



Allegedly, the Jones Brothers were Quincy Jones' uncles. Quincy Jones once bragged at the American Society of Composers Authors and Producers that his uncles the Jones Brothers "took 30 million off the streets of Chicago;" an impressive accomplishment in the depression era.


The Jones Brothers were the richest black men in America at one time. They ran a $25 million dollar policy empire out of Bronzeville Chicago.


They were educated at Howard university. They own businesses and built a hospital and even tried to start a bank. They were a part of a larger black underworld that had people like Iceberg slim on the peripheral.



The three brothers, Edward (above), George, and McKissack (Mack), started out small, running a policy station from the back entrance of their "Jones Brothers Tailor Shop."



Lead by brother Ed, the Jones trio turned a nickel game into a sophisticated business enterprise, which included the Jones Brothers Ben Franklin Store on 47th Street, the world's only black owned department store; Joe Louis and Bill Bojangles Robinson made an appearance at the grand opening.


The brothers made high level civic and social connections, but the glamorous and lavish lifestyle of the Jones boys couldn't be separated from the criminal activity that created it. Kidnappings, death threats, corrupt politics, violence, and jail time were also prominent in the brothers' lives.


At home, Ed shaved in a $7,500 goldleaf bathroom, ate in a white-and-silver dining room at a glass-topped table, relaxed in a game room with a miniature pool table flanked by a rolling bar. And he had his own Pullman-car porter.


Why hasn't there been a biopic done on the Jones Brothers?


Quincy Jones has the power to bring their story to the screen.









You've probably heard of Napoleon Hill's legendary book "Think and Grow Rich," (2nd pic) which has sold over 15 million copies worldwide.

The bestselling book was the end result of interviewing and researching over 500 successful men and women in an effort to discover the exact method they used in order to achieve their respective goals.

Included among these 500 men and women were Thomas Edison, Henry Ford, Theodore Roosevelt, Charles Schwab, Woodrow Wilson, Alexander Graham Bell, John D. Rockefeller, along with many others.
In the introduction of his book, Napoleon Hill gives mention of a Hidden Secret, which was in essence, the exact how-to methodology of thinking and achieving the goals you desire, not just that of financial success.


The secret is revealed in the book: "The Hidden Secret in Think And Grow Rich," (first pic). 


Examples: "If you are ready for the secret, you already possess one half of it."

"If you are ready to put it to use, you will recognize it at least once in every chapter."
"Somewhere as you read, the secret to which I refer will jump from the page and stand boldly before you, if you are ready for it! When it appears, you will recognize it."



Book Review:


I read the book and agree with it whole heartedly. I believe this was the much needed follow up to Napoleon Hill's classic.

When I first read "Think and Grow Rich," I missed the secret, so my results were great, but they were not consistent.

You will certainly enlighten a lot of souls."
