Bow Tie Monday started at Jordan High School in Columbus, GA when Darius Moore asked Derrick Hayes to participate and where a Bow Tie each Monday.


The last thought on Derrick Hayes mind was to wear a tie to work but he also did not want to say no to someone else dream. After wearing a bow tie for a few weeks there was a day when the weather would not permit anyone to go out and get another bow tie so Hayes had to learn how to turn the regular ties that he already had into bow ties so that he could continue to participate in Bow Tie Monday.

Since Derrick Hayes did not kill his dream it ended up living his. Derrick Hayes went from not wanting to wear a tie to sharing and teaching others how to tie regular ties and also how to turn them into bow ties and the impact and feedback from men, women and children was incredible.

Now Derrick Hayes has branded himself as the “enTIEtainer” since he has added new tie tying techniques to his seminars, workshops, routines and Stand Up Encouragement sessions. The “enTIEtainer” is available to perform and uplift audiences at schools, colleges, corporations, meetings, events, concerts, festivals, clubs, casinos, churches, carnivals and other venues.

Use Your HEAD Better

April 22, 2020

If you only think and live like others you will only end up like them. Sometimes life will leave you scratching your HEAD so through this word I share with you 4 things that can do to make your life better.

H is for Herbs. A few years ago I was not even thinking about herbs but one doctor said I had the flu and the next doctor said that it was just allergies. Both times I had prescriptions for antibiotics but nothing was working for me. I decided to research alternative medicines and I found out about the power of herbs. The first herb I decided to try was black seed oil and it did for me what neither one of the previous prescriptions could do and that was to bring me back to normal. Then I found this quote about Black Cummin from where black seed comes from and that “it cures everything but death.”

E is for Education. When I wanted to learn more about herbs and how they can help you I visited and I learned about the power of other anti-viral herbs including oregano, licorice, holy basil, garlic, ginger, fennel lemon balm, elderberries, peppermint, rosemary and dandelion. After further research I found out that herbs specifically can help strengthen the immune system and provide anti-inflammatory properties.

A is for Activity. Find what works for you whether it be walking, running, jogging or lifting weights. I love to walk around the park and what makes the journey incredible is the scenery that takes you around with each mile. From the birds flying above or the ducks walking in packs down below. At different times during the year there are sporting events from baseball to football taking place along with others having picnics.

D is for Diet. When my cholesterol was high I knew I had to make changes. The decision was made for me to give up meat. I was able to get my numbers to my cholesterol to come down and I have only eaten meat twice since January 1st, 2013. Find ways to eat better and make eating fun. Smoothies are a great way to add kale and fruit together at the same time to make a great meal go down easy. Making adjustments has allowed me to enjoy veggie burgers and ordering tacos with beans instead of beef.

If we add Herbs and make changes and adjustments with our Education, Activity and Diet we will live better because we used our HEAD better.

National Youth At Risk Conference

April 3, 2020

Here is a video clip from my 4 Things That TIE Into Life Development Presentation at the National Youth At Risk Conference that took place in Savannah, Georgia. After the program I received these words of encouragement from an educator who attended my session that had traveled all the way from Guam for this event.

“This presentation was the most authentic and touching I have attended so far. Thank you for sharing your journey and for making it seem possible for everyone in the room to be just as great! Blessed to be in your audience.”
