In March of 2006, I finished my collegiate sports career and completed my coursework. My girlfriend at the time had recently met a loan officer at a networking event while I was on a basketball trip and recommended I meet with him when I returned to discuss career opportunities.

I did.

That decision was the start of a string of jobs that I only lasted at for 6 months while trying to find a role that I could thrive in.

Finding something that I enjoyed and that would pay me what I was worth would take a decade.

It shouldn’t take that long, but it’s the story for many athletes and first-generation students after graduating from college.

In 2019, I started Catalyst Training & Development to help athletes avoid the humiliation and embarrassment I felt in trying to find a way to provide for myself and family after leaving college.

One of the critical components I was missing when graduating from college was having a network of people at my disposal to help me transition into the next phase of my professional life.

The Compass Network is my solution to helping people connect with experts in the critical areas that tend to be the most stressful:

Career, business, real estate, and finance.

My personal mission with Compass Network is to help people improve their lives faster, something that would’ve saved me at least a decade in my transition from student-athlete to entrepreneur.
