Doors stay open for an artist that has an instrument who uses it to speak to the soul of their audience. Kenny G has the saxophone. Floyd Mayweather, Jr. has the Sweet Science. Pete Maravich had a basketball and EnTIEtainer Derrick Headlines Hayes tell stories through neck ties to empower others to greatness.

When you see someone do something that you have never seen or done before look into the word practice. In practice you have ACT and when you pull this out of the word it leaves you with PRICE. You have to be willing to pay the PRICE with practice so that you can get on stage and complete the ACT. You may have to put in 1500 hours of work for 15 minutes on stage to receive a 15 second ovation.

The Best

October 15, 2017

When you are up putting in work sometimes you have to look in the mirror and tell yourself you are the best but you have to keep putting in the work so that the words you speak manifest in your life so that you become the best that you can be.

About That Life

October 14, 2017

Entietainer Derrick Hayes at tells stories through neck ties to entertain and empower others to greatness and in this clip he turns a tie backwards to show the Shaw High School Football Team in Columbus, Georgia that if they have faith and put in the work their life and season can turn around for them on and off the field.


The full length presentation was called, SHAW Life: 4 Things You Need To Succeed.


S is for Stability. Getting to class on time, good grades, respecting your elders/ Getting to practice on time, practicing hard and finding ways to improve. When you are stable it takes you to the the H.


H is for Happiness. A relationships is the reason I’m working at SHAW. After 5 years of working at Jordan I wanted to change teams. My goal for today is plant a word in your life to inspire you to want to change teams, from a losing team to a winning team.


A is for Activism. Give back in the community and help other players become better and it will put you in position to create partnerships.


W is for Why. Find out why you are alive and why you even play the game. Most people die and take their dreams to the cemetery. When you know why you live you never die.
