I have customized this to deliver to broad audiences, including at-risk teens at inner city high schools in Los Angeles and DC, NFL players at the NFL's Business Symposium at Wharton and attendees at the National Association of Realtors annual conference. Topics and concepts covered include: * Background growing up in Washington, DC and becoming high school All-American in football * Winning football scholarship to attend Notre Dame and play under Hall of Fame coach Lou Holtz * Being drafted in NFL in 1999 and fighting to stay in the league for 4 years before deciding to retire and pursue a career in finance * Earning an MBA from Carnegie Mellon University and ultimately deciding to join Bank of America's commercial real estate group * Working with industry's top real estate funds and developers on high profile commercial projects totaling over $32 billion in value * Remaining committed to core values and the community along the way * "Life's most important question is ... What are you doing for others?" - Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. * "Winning = What's Important Now" - Lou Holtz * "I am the master of me. I hold all the cards." - Pete Carroll
