March 4, 2013

CedricNettlesEncouragement Speaker Derrick Hayes gives a DERRICK Interview by asking 7 questions through each letter of his first name to give you an insightful perspective from other experts, entrepreneurs, celebrities and up and coming super stars.

Today’s DERRICK Interview is with Cedric Nettles who is the founder of SageRage Productions. Cedric is the author of ‘Torrential Waters’ and has a passion for creating other positive and hard hitting stories. His first film was a documentary on his alma mater which was the first black school to be accredited by the state Department of Education in South Carolina called ‘Mayo High School: 105 Years of Golden Heritage.”

Cedric served as an communications specialist and paratrooper for elite military intelligence unit. Later he was appointed squad leader for signal intelligence unit for the 10th Mountain Division based in Fort Drum NY.

He spent 6 years working behind the scenes for WPDE/WWMB Florence/Myrtle Beach. Cedric has acted in independent films and commercials, modeled, as well as consulted on other projects. He attended the University of South Carolina for Broadcast Journalism. He is a native of Darlington,SC.

D is for Dream. What is your dream?

My dream is to be a world class author and film producer. I just don’t want to make stories, I want to make a statement. I care about the messages I put out there, and I have a SINCERE passion for what I do. And for the people helping me do it. Not for ego, but for the message and the artistic way I voice that message.The resources are catching up to the dream, so look out! (:

E for Encouragement. What encourages you?

What encourages me is my Lord & Savior who gets me through life’s storms in order to make me stronger without ever compromising on my sense of ethics. You can’t stop what is for you, so that keeps me encourage.

R is for Resources. What resources do you bring to the table that make you stand out or unique?

The resources I bring to the table is being humbled in life threatening situations in youth. Humility is a resource because it helps me appreciate the many people that have helped me along the way. I maintain a high sense of humility to help ensure I never hurt another human being as I make my ascent to higher ground.I think that is a unique trait I have been told I had.

R is for Ready. When did you know you were ready for what you are doing now?

This is very simple. Every possible resource I dreamed of as a 17-year-old are trickling in now. Can’t stop it even if I tried. It is incredible. ‘I knew.’ So I knew my calling is kicking in at this stage in my life…And you know what? I am glad. It took the hard years to make sure I had the character to handle it.

I is for Individual. What individual do you think we should know more about and why?

My mother is the one person that comes to mind. She says to me to this day ‘Do the right thing, and things will fall into place.” It is hard, and that doesn’t mean you will get that treatment from others, but I always got 10 fold of whatever I put out there. ALWAYS CAME BACK.So why not do good in the first place. (:

C is for Continue. What makes you want to continue when things look bleak or optimistic?

I think right now at this stage of my life, I had to learn to take my eyes off myself and place it on other people. Again it humbles you when you try to uplift other people around you. Then you realize how blessed you really are.

K is for Keys. What keys to success can you leave for others?

Erasing the possibility of quitting. The word ‘quit’ should be a vulgar one to you. Run your race and don’t fall in the snare of comparing yourself to others running a different race. Take whatever time you need to get there…Don’t stop! If people really knew what is buried inside me and others they would be stunned. You think they are going to stop the pot shots after they find out?? Nope. People will criticize you for what they think of you, not what they know of you. You look me in the eye you see, passion,long-suffering, and faith. When I see that look in others, I already know where they are going. Get that look and never surrender your dreams,peace, and ideas to anyone.

DERRICK Interview with 90 Days From Right Now Mychal Connolly

December 7, 2012

90dayEncouragement Speaker Derrick Hayes gives a DERRICK Interview by asking 7 questions through each letter of his first name to give you an insightful perspective from other experts, entrepreneurs, celebrities and up and coming super stars.

Today’s DERRICK Interview is with Mychal Connolly the Co-Founder of the baby-gift company Stinky Cakes was named one of 100 Urban Entrepreneurs by it’s non profit TheCASHFLOW. After neglecting his health while building his brand Stinky Cakes, Connolly became diabetic, with high blood pressure and high cholesterol and this led Mychal to launch 90 Days From Right Now health & fitness challenge to help people stay in shape, lose weight and get the nutrition their bodies need.

D is for Dream. What is your dream, goals or what have you achieved?

My dream is to be the best at everything I do. As a youth they called me BUGS Best Until God’s Gift Stops and God’s gift is life. I also want Whoever is affiliated with me to be the best that they can be.  Help people become the best that they can be and I have seen that are numerous level and by being recognized. Once you put our your best everything comes into play and people begin to recognize you.  

E is for Encourage. What encourages you?

Having the ability to set a really great example for the kids especially the ones in the Urban environment. Urban communities are very diverse and I get to put my hands back and help others reach for their dreams by leaving a blueprint for them.  

R is for Resource. What resources do you bring to the table that makes you unique or stand out?

I think the fact that I launched my first company at the age of 9, it helps me so much because I understand what I wanted and needed when I was as a kid.  People are normally impressed with the things I do but I tell them all the time that the 9 year old and teenage version of me would be disappointed at the 30 year old version of me.  The thing that was missing was that I did not have a mentor but now that I went through it and have done so many things I can turn around now and mentor others.  My life experiences and things that I have been through mentally and emotionally as an entrepreneur makes me a valuable resource for someone who is willing to go through what it takes to become successful.

R is for Ready. When did you realize you were ready for what you are doing now?

I realized being in ICU that it is very important for me to be healthy because all the things I want to do or achieve can’t be done if I’m not healthy and even worse if I’m not around so when I launched the 90 Days From Right Now mission to help others get healthy I knew that was I needed to do. I knew that everything I had been through in the last 5 to 6 years put me in the space where I’m at now. 6 years ago I was 205 and I got up to 285 so I had not gained all the weight and became unhealthy I don’t think I would  empathize as much with someone in the same position that I was in.

I is for Individual. Name at least one person that you know that you feel others should learn about and why?

Entrepreneur Michael Kittredge was who the Founder of the Yankee Candle Company sold it for 500 million dollars. He always put his family and health first. He made money but did not put it first. He taught others how to manage and balance life.  

C is for Continue. When you fail, things look bleak or are not optimistic what makes you want to continue?

I want to continue because when most people quit they are right there at the top, right close to their goals. What keeps me going is that I have my supporters (wife, mother, stepfather wife, in-laws, and friends) that want to see me succeed so I have to keep going. I don’t want to give others that want to see me fail the satisfaction of being able to say hey look at him he tried it and he failed. I welcome people to throw the lemons at me because the people that care about my clients I have enjoy the lemonade, Italian ice, lemon water, lemon popsicles that we make with those lemons. You have to keep pushing one step and one day at a time.

K is for Keys. What keys to success can you leave for upcoming entrepreneurs and leaders?

Don’t feed your ego, feed your bank account. You either going to be cool or make money. Sometimes cool and making money does not go together. Do the things that it will take to be successful. Most people if they saw success walking down the street they would walk right by it and not give it a second look. They would not say hi to it .they would not embrace it or engage it in conversation. Success is boring looking, plain, simple looking, tedious, and it’s not attractive. Successful and non successful people have one similarity in that they hate to do what it takes to be successful it is just that  successful people do what it takes anyway. Also learn the power of leveraging, residual income, and the power of your network.

Is there anything that we did not touch on that you would like to inspire others with?

Read books like, Think and Grow Rich, 1O Inch Rule by Van Cardone, Rich Dad Poor Dad, Toilet Paper Entrepreneur and The Pumpkin Plan.
