SPARK, Inc. is Hosting its 1st Annual Single Parent Family, Freedom Tele-Summit for Parents and Youth

post thumbnail

Over the past month, I’ve had the pleasure of connecting with Tina Fortune via Twitter, as she is a loyal listener of our Chicago-based financial talk radio show.  She regularly listens to our show, especially on our Monday morning episodes of Making God First Mondays.  It is not only my honor to invite you all to her tele-summit that you can participate in the comfort of your home, but an honor to be asked by Ms. Fortune to be a part of her message to single-parent families.  As a single-father myself, I deeply empathize with the challenges of not only making a living, dealing with the stresses of life and a career, but raising up the next generation in our family line…future leaders, entrepreneurs and world changers.

I personally ask that you invite all the single parents that you know to this event and invest in our community, our families and our future together.

A great mentor of mine once said, “You are a product of the books you read, the people you surround yourself with and the meetings you attend“.

Tune in and “see you” there!!
