The Day I Found Out I Was Haitian

The Day I Found Out I Was Haitian

 

Happy Haitian Flag Day to all my Haitian people out there!

There is a story I share as part of my introduction before I start a presentation or workshop.  It describes the day that I found out I was Haitian (May 18, 1995).  “No,” I wasn’t adopted and reunited with my birth parents nor was May 18, 1995 my date of birth–well in a way it was.

It was a time of clarification of identity.  As a young professional, I am sure you ask yourself questions about identity–who am I?, Who am I becoming?, Who do I want to be?

Identity can be an interesting thing because many times we define ourselves by what we do or used to do.  That’s why it hurt so much when I was fired in 2005.  This video takes a look at a time a little bit before the professional stage.

As you watch the video look for points where there is a connection to your life as a young professional.  Do you have a story to tell?  Would love to hear it.

 

 

As always my goal is to help you Run the Point (take action) from where you are, with what you have.

Your Ambassador,

I have a deep desire to help spread entrepreneurial thinking as the solutions to many of our problems today. I am a project kind of guy who loves to get things started. When I'm not in search of contract work (projects) that I can do during the nights and weekends I can be found working as a mild mannered Digital Content Manager for Babson Executive Education.
