Diner Talks With James

Episode Description

My man Odell Bizzell II slid into the diner booth with me this week. He and I have known each other for a number of years from the speaker circuit and I have always respected his hustle. We talked about how he and I travel differently and why he typically spends all of his time on the road in the hotel. He told me some of the powerful lessons he father taught him growing up black in Guilford County, North Carolina. I loved hearing about how he chose to go NC State as opposed to an HBCU (Historically Black College/University). We talked about where his hustler’s mindset comes from, how he has written 10 books, and what fuels him. He and Stan Pearson III are creating a brand new association in the higher education space called NAMCA. The last thing we discussed was how to get out of your own way and learn how to market yourself and your strengths.
