Ep. 045 - Your dreams. Your choice. (w. Bernhard Poitevien) (Part 1)


On this episode, I welcome relentless entrepreneur and dedicated individual Bernhard Poitevien, founder and visionary at the helm of the International Association of Moringa(IAM)

Excited is the word as Bernhard has this infectious sense of 'We'll get this done' that has resonated with me in regards to the sheer patience and resilience he's had to put forward to stay true to his path and vision.

A man of audacity, his story and it's impactful chapters - which made for our very first 2-part episode - was a truly remarkable one.

With a love for his native country, Haiti, and a knowledgeable sense of duty towards its economic and agricultural sustainability, I definitely learned a lot on this one., and hopefully, so will you.


You can connect with Bernhard via his Instagram Feed & Facebook Page.

Ep. 044 - Keep moving forward (w. Kacey McCallister)


On this incredible episode, I welcome family man, motivational speaker, OCR athlete Kacey McCallister.

I've been part of the Spartan Race community for a couple of years now so I'm always keeping up with little stories and personal accounts of individual victories. And it's on one of those random scrolls on Instagram that I was both amazed and humbled at the individual that the Spartan Race had featured on their page.

I had to reach out. I had to show some camaraderie. If only to let this gentleman know how truly inspiring his achievement was to me.



In a time where some of us seem to struggle to find the motivation to just get out of bed in the morning, I got to meet and hear a guy who obviously does not let his circumstances, but rather his will and determination, disctate his incredible possibilities. Let's all RISE UP!

You can show some love and connect with Kacey via his Instagram Feed & Facebook Page.

Ep. 043 - It'll be OK


On this solo episode, I take a second and take a breather. A brief moment of vulnerability, really. Sometimes, you have to admit to yourself that you can't do it all. Thankfully, the people that matter have their own way of showing you they're not holding it against you. Enjoy.

Ep. 042 - Success as the Standard (w. Richard Lecoin)

© Zavier De'Angelo (https://www.zavierdeangelo.com/) - All Rights Reserved
On this episode, I welcome Richard Lecoin - photographer, model, entrepreneur, husband, father...and many other hats that I myself got to discover from this very impactful conversation.

It's one of those truly humbling circumstances where you come out the other end of a great exchange and the only word that can even closely describe it is "Wow".

I'll be the first to admit that I did not have much of a laid-out plan as far as this interview was concerned. But in no way did this affect the genuinely inspiring message that Richard had to share.

With grace and vulnerability, Richard shares his story of resilience, audacity, patience, loss, self affirmation and humility. I had to sit back and reflect on this one even after the mic was cut off. Grab a seat and open your hearts 'cause this one is an amazing ride.

A man of character and a truly outstanding individual, my thanks to Richard for his openness and availability for this recording.

You can show some love and connect with Richard via his Instagram Feed & Facebook Page  where his terrific work can be viewed.

Ep. 041 - Two Black Guys (& a Gal) with Good Credit (w. Shaun Lynda, Dionne Nicholls, Arlington Forbes)


I must say that this episode should definitely be filed under the <Long Overdue> category.

About two years ago, I had the opportunity to meet Ms Dionne Nicholls. From our conversation and my genuine respect for her warm personality and infectious motivation, I realized there was something special going on there. Indeed, the more we talked and eventually connected, I ended up writing a blog post/review of her podcast "Two Black Guys With Good Credit" which she co-hosts  with the dynamic duo that are Shaun Lynda & Arlington Forbes.

Having been on the lesser end of financial freedom myself and slowly but surely building my way back up the hill, I can't tell what a imperative asset it is to sharpen your mind, habits and mindset towards a goal-oriented, practical and strategic financial journey. This is a special group of people who, through their podcast and Financially CLEAN! (a non-profit youth mentoring program), have made it their mission to reach out, educate and elevate as many people as they can through workshops, lectures and yes, podcasts!

A gem of a wild exchange. I had so much fun with this interview and it's no surprise why when you're blessed to have such a delightful ensemble of guests.


You can connect with the team and show some love by...
- visiting their website, liking their Facebook page, or following them on Instagram
- subscribing to their podcast via iTunes, Stitcher and/or TuneIn
- sending an email to TBGWGC@gmail.com

I do hope you enjoy this conversation as we've enjoyed bringing it to you.
