Meet Dr. Farrah Gray, my new inspiration...

I usually blog about something if I think about it at least three times. But this has to be the 80th time I've read something about a certain black man by the name of Dr. Farrah Gray, so I thought it was appropriate that I look into him and his background. Who IS Dr. Farrah Gray?

According to his bio on his official site, he is someone who can show our young people what can happen when you decide at an early age that you want to make something of yourself.

"Raised in the impoverished South side of Chicago, Dr. Gray defied the odds and became a self-made millionaire by the age of 14," his bio reads.

He got his start selling handmade lotion and bookends and accomplished more in his few years on earth than most people do in a lifetime.

I like giving light to people who are making real strides in the world, who understand what it takes to get ahead and serve as an inspiration for those generations to follow.

Now excuse me while I go off to the library to pick up his book, Reallionaire: Nine Steps to Becoming Rich from the Inside Out. You should too.

Yes, I've seen him profiled quite a bit and was also inspired by his story.

I love people who overcome challenges and don't let the fact that they were born into poverty dissuade them.
