We had the good fortune of connecting with Rod Warner and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Rod, is your business focused on helping the community? If so, how?
I consider the African Proverb- “Each one, Teach one” a key component of value to the community and entire world. Meaning, the clarity one receives from my business will promote positive thinking and actions. As a result, not only is the individual affected, but also their households, communities and worldwide.
What should our readers know about your business?
I got where I am today by making a choice to be a helper and giver. The choice wasn’t easy however, it was challenging and it tested me on all levels to prove to myself how much I really wanted it and how much I was deserving of it. There are two key elements of success I have learned which are to be consistent and persistent.
I want the world to know it is important to have belief and trust. You must have believed in self, others and your goals.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
When my best friend visits we will start the morning off at Barnaby’s for breakfast, after shopping at Memorial City mall, late lunch at Rouxpour, dinner at Steak 48 and end the late night with drinks at Miss Carousel
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I want to give a shout out to my support circle. First to Kenyatta Black. Kenny Randle and Dr. Walter Sutton Jr , Dr. Moses Chism Jr. , Cedric “Solo” Walton and lastly Dr. Michael Rimlawi. These individuals have taught me so much in life and business. They all keep me inspired, balanced, growing and humble.
