What are the chances that a boy born into powerless poverty in a village in Africa, who didn’t learn to properly read or write until the age of fifteen, would one day graduate from a distinguished university, become a successful entrepreneur, and eventually write a book?

I know, it sounds like a fairytale, and, it is truly my fairy-tale.

From Prophecies to Business Success

It’s my life story and journey, growing up in my village until the age of 10 and moving on to being brought up by three step-parents as the doorway to a higher education and a chance to fulfill the prophecy of my mother. It was no easy walk. But I started with the right mindset, followed by discipline, commitment and hard-work.



Offers the seven essential mindsets to success I discovered after years of learning, testing, and perfecting what I believe offers the best process for not only achieving the trappings of success, but also the joy that should also be an integral part.

To this end, I’m honored to share with you my struggle to success – from my days as a child in a tiny village in Africa with no roads, schools, or even running water to my adoption into a family where I was a servant to a successful businessman to my next adoption into yet another family and a father who became the Liberian Ambassador to Romania.  I’ll share with you the deepest sorrows and joys of my lifelong journey and motivation to succeed no matter the challenges that came my way.

My motivation, ignited by the words spoken to me by my mother as a child – Drive to aim high, inspired and empowered me to overcome my struggles and live full out.

I found Al’s book, and the appraisals of the various mindsets, both fascinating and useful. Al, writing from the perspective of his unique background, as someone whose success and achievement is only to be admired, has captured the keys to his success vividly. This book is a genuinely insightful and practical tool to both those starting out on their career road, and those already well advanced on it. The book is thoroughly entertaining, also! Highly recommended!
