Happy Father’s Day

Today, as we honor fathers and father figures, I want to celebrate the remarkable individuals who go above and beyond to shape the future generation. I had the privilege of engaging in a fascinating conversation about entrepreneurship with James Montague, an extraordinary real estate developer and a dedicated father of six. Together, we had the honor of sharing our unique entrepreneurial journeys with enthusiastic participants at the 2023 NC Fatherhood conference.

During our discussion, James and I discovered a common thread that bound us together: our unwavering commitment to mentorship and creating opportunities for young minds in business and entrepreneurship. It reminded me of the invaluable guidance, teachings, and mentorship I received from my father, Calvin Ray Mills and countless other father figures. Their investment in my growth and development has left an indelible mark on my life.

I am eternally grateful for the time and effort these remarkable individuals dedicated to advising, teaching, coaching, and mentoring me. Their selflessness and belief in my potential have propelled me forward. As I reflect upon their immeasurable contributions, I feel an unshakable sense of responsibility to pay it forward.

My ultimate goal is to create a better quality of life for our communities and future generations. Inspired by the examples set by my dad and other influential figures, I am committed to playing my part in fostering opportunities for young people. I hope to equip them with the tools they need to succeed in business and entrepreneurship through mentoring, guiding, and supporting them.

So, on this Father’s Day, let us extend our heartfelt appreciation to all the fathers and father figures who selflessly invest their time, love, and wisdom in shaping the next generation. May we celebrate their profound impact and strive to emulate their unwavering dedication. Let us build a brighter future for our communities and leave a lasting legacy for generations.
