Rashaun Williams is a man who knows how to make it happen. Growing up on the south side of Chicago with a mother on welfare and a father addicted to drugs, he only had one dream early on that he can remember, to make it out of the hood alive. At 13, he witnessed something that he's never gotten over, but it became the motivation to escape his circumstance. The trauma of those days, though, are never too far from his mind. Through therapy, he's found one question that helps him navigate the hard choices in life while making sure his emotions and his connection to something greater all remain in proper balance. The help of a mentor and a book his mother gave him, coupled with his fight to never go back, contributes to his success. He's also got a pretty funny story about applying to a scholarship for black women that screams, “I'm worth the investment.” And it's true. At 23, he is the Morehouse grad who became the youngest VP at Wachovia Bank and would go on to help bring in millions for his clients. Rashaun seems to have a gift for making a dollar out of 15 cents, but he’ll tell you it isn’t magic.
