Sinners Have a Soul Too by R Smart

"People live at least two lives; the one in front of the family and the one outside of that. Now I can say that my more dominant personality is the only life. As a professional, it makes me feel good to know that people look upon me as someone competent, and possessing leadership qualities. Earning the Bachelors and Masters degrees have provided a different level of confidence; however, my development is attributed to a major portion of life in which I call the human services era or the stripping and male prostitution era.
For the past 6 years, teaching and training have been at the forefront. Why tell this story now? Am I worried about what people think? People always compliment the man that I am, so it is necessary to know that mistakes made me into this man. There is not a day that goes by that my thoughts don’t rewind to the days of easy money, and frequent sexual encounters. Every time I open a check or check my bank account, my mind takes me to a place where there was no working 8 hours a day to earn minimal money or money being taken from the check to pay taxes. Going back is not an option because of a life fulfilled now. I touch people now, but differently: with my words."

Born and raised in Flint, Michigan, I was drawn to trying to get away from here and the dying area, so college it was. Although college would be out of my reach for some years, my life lessons were prepping for the school. I attended college at Western Michigan University where I earned a Bachelor of Arts in Education and an M.A. in Administration and Supervision from the University of Phoenix. I also involved myself with tons of organizations such as Project Mentor, Big Brother, NAACP, YES, Alumni Network, 21st Century, Upward Bound, Project Team, Bridges, etc. It was important to stay busy everyday to learn new things and veer from the past. My teaching career began in Kalamazoo, Michigan, where I gained wonderful knowledge. I then moved to Charlotte, North Carolina where I taught for the Charlotte Mecklenburg School District, and ended up settling back in the hometown of Flint, Michigan. I moved back to Michigan for my family and now reside in Grand Blanc, Michigan where I taught three years for the Beecher Community School District in Flint, Michigan. During my initial teaching period, I completed a book titled “All in Love is Fair” which helped me calm some demons. I traveled around tremendously to promote the first book and learned the past is only negative if you let it. Writing is something done when not in the middle of training. Teaching and training is my first love; however, my goals extend far beyond the classroom. Now that I am a corporate trainer, my life is fulfilled in different ways.
