"Our greatest power is our power to choose" - William James

For most of my life, I was a victim of my own thinking. Being diagnosed with a learning disability as a child, I thought I had a good excuse. I was told I wasn't stupid, I just didn't learn like the other kids.

As a result, I put 100% of my focus on sports. I had a great high school career but struggled in college due to, well, excuses. That all changed when I crossed paths with Sarah Baker (my academic advisor) who disrupted my pattern and caused me to take a deeper look at myself and what I was capable of. That semester, I went from a 1.4 to a 3.9 and never looked back.

I have dedicated my life to giving others the same gift Sarah gave me.

In 2014, My wife and I founded Kendall Douglas LLC. Our company gives us the ability to Speak, Coach and train people to realize their best self.

In 2015, I became a certified Dale Carnegie instructor and facilitate the Skills for Success course in the Raleigh/Durham market. Dale Carnegie has been instrumental in my personal development and it is an honor to watch people's life change as they interact with the course.

I am also the Director of Training for MEGA Group USA. With over 1700 retail members, MEGA is dedicated to helping independent retailers in the Furniture, Appliance and Bedding industry thrive.
