  1. The new movement was founded by Coach Michael Taylor and friends to provide support and motivation to all men of color to achieve greatness and take their rightful place in society. STAFFORD, TX (June 2022) – Texas-based Life Coach, Michael Taylor and a group of friends have issued a call for men of color to join a new, life changing movement dubbed, Brothahood of Kings. The Brothahood of Kings is a collaborative effort between Coach Michael Taylor, Paul Newell, Bro Reimoku and Jermaine Johnson. The movement consists of a dedicated group of likeminded black men who work with members to boost their confidence, and offer guidance on using their energy and talents to reshape their world for success. The Brothahood of Kings has emerged at a time when it seems as if black masculinity is under attack. The ever increasing hypermasculine and hypersexual portrayal of black men have placed undue pressure on men of color. Sadly, the social expectations of strength and stoicism often prevented black men from seeking professional help to address mental and emotional issues. The Brothahood of Kings provides a channel for all men of color to deal with their mental and emotional health in a safe, supportive environment. The community offers inspiring podcasts, workshops, webinars, online courses and books dedicated to personal development and success. Coach Michael Taylor and his friends are concerned about the continuous misrepresentation of black men and are dedicated to build a new foundation for the current and future generation of black men. "We launched The Brothahood of Kings because I believe black men are sick and tired of the constant barrage of negative stories about them, said Coach Michael Taylor in explaining the motivation for creating the movement. He added: “They are hungry for positive resources to support them in creating rewarding and fulfilling lives and the Brothahood of Kings was created to meet that need and change the narrative." In addition to the Brothahood of Kings community, Coach Michael Taylor is also working on a book collaboration project (release date December 2022) to publish a new book titled, The Brothahood of Kings: Empowering Black Men to Embody Authentic Masculinity. Consequently, he is looking to connect with black men who are willing to contribute their expertise, insights and experience to support other men of color in their growth and development .

  2. Stafford, TX, June 27, 2022 — “The second half of your life is the best part.” That’s the message from author, entrepreneur and Life Coach Michael Taylor in announcing the launch of his latest book, I’m Not Okay With Gray: How to Create an Extraordinary Life After 50. “Today’s society places a high value on youth and beauty, and the experience and wisdom possessed by older folks is not treasured as much as decades gone by,” Taylor said. “It’s no wonder that many people often dread getting old.” And there’s good reason to embrace getting older. One study found that Americans who were more positive about aging lived 7.5 years longer. It is on this premise that Taylor is encouraging his readers to embrace the second part of their lives. I’m Not Okay With Gray: How to Create an Extraordinary Life After 50 is an inspiring resource written purposely to hopefully change people’s mindsets about getting older and empower men and women over 50 to recognize that the second half of life can be more fulfilling than the first half. The book explores topics such as embracing spirituality, health and fitness, technology, joy, financial abundance and more. Readers will benefit from valuable insights as the author draws from his experiences, emphasizing the importance of elderly wisdom and how to apply it to live happier lives. Taylor is a Certified Life Coach who has helped thousands of people transform their lives from the inside out by changing their attitudes about aging. The author himself did not have an exceptional first half of his life but overcame being a high school dropout, divorce, depression, foreclosure and homelessness to become an entrepreneur, the author of 11 books, motivational speaker and radio host. He also launched a career and company at the age of 60 without any formal degrees or training. “I’ve met many people who dread getting older or who believe life is finished because they’ve entered another phase,” said Taylor when asked to explain his reasons for writing the book. “I wrote this book to help people renew their mindset about aging and anticipate great things in the second part of their life. This is my gift to humanity to help make the world a better place.” I’m Not Okay With Gray: How to Create an Extraordinary Life After 50 aims to be an insightful and uplifting first step resource for those struggling to be optimistic about the aging process. The book is available in eBook and paperback formats on am*zon and on the author’s website. For further information, visit: https://www.coachmichaeltaylor.com.

  3. What if Jesus Were a Coach is a new book written by Coach Michael Taylor to help individuals start their spiritual journey, in the wake of harrowing statistics revealing that organized religion is on the decline. STAFFORD, TX (June 2022) – Texas Life Coach, Michael Taylor, has thrown a lifeline to individuals looking to kickstart their spiritual journey and self-discovery in his new book, What if Jesus Were a Coach? Data released from the Pew Research Center political surveys reveals that the decline of Christianity continues at a rapid pace. The statistics reveal that the rates of religious affiliation and religious attendance were rapidly declining. According to the data, the number of religious ‘nones’ have grown by nearly 30 million over the past decade, and only 49% of millennials describe themselves as Christians, in comparison to 84% of Silent Generation and 76% Baby Boomers and 67 of Generation X. The truth is that many individuals have an innate need to connect with a power greater than themselves. Sadly, this desire to connect to the Divine is often thwarted by religious dogma and doctrines. But not anymore. Touted as a positive approach to Christianity, Coach Michael Taylor’s new book offers a positive approach to religion and Christianity that will inspire those looking to find their truth about God. Taylor’s refreshing take on spirituality on religion aims to inspire readers to discover the truth and set themselves free. In this book the author shares is own experiences and delves into the teachings of Jesus to help readers discover a fresh outlook on life and that there is more to spirituality than doctrines. A former Atheist, Taylor once had an aversion to organized religion until he undertook extensive research about world religions in an attempt to determine if God existed or not. He said: “My research ultimately led me to my own "truth" about God which has allowed me to create an intimacy and connection to a power greater than myself. In this book I share my experiences and how I was able to do that.” What if Jesus Were a Coach offers valuable lessons that will benefit even those who do not believe in God. Readers will come away with a refreshing viewpoint and with new found wisdom on connecting with a higher power and achieving their dreams. And the book is already having an impact. One reader said: “The message is beautiful and heartfelt – with explicit personal experiences. For me, it is like coming out of the deepest, darkest hole and into the light for the first time. It is not just a guide, but also a light to guide you along the way to your spiritual awakening. It is an ultimate guide when you’re searching for the truth in your spiritual journey. The messages will be a constant reference for me moving forward.” What if Jesus Were a Coach is available at online booksellers including am*zon, Barnes & Noble, Books a Million.

  7. You've made a very important point. Sometimes the greatest obstacle we have to face is the conversation in our own heads. Too many times a person will talk themselves out of doing something because of what they think might happen. If we've experienced any type of threat we create a defense mechanism to try and avoid that threat even when no real threat exists. This is the reason changing our inner narrative is so important. Our inner thoughts about ourselves and the world around us creates our outer experiences. Changing our mindsets is the key to to overcoming the negative media generated narratives about ourselves.
  8. We are all aware of the mainstream media's negative narrative about black men. We are constantly bombarded with stories of high incarceration rates, black on black violence, deadbeat dads and of course police brutality. From the outside looking in it appears that black men are destined for failure and there is nothing that can be done to change the implied negative trajectory that black men are on. But is the media's narrative true? Are black men really an endangered species? I believe the answer is an emphatic no and I have made it my life's to work to support and empower black men to overcome the negative stereotypes and to create extraordinary lives. In order for black men to succeed the first thing they must do is understand how societal conditioning contributes to creating a negative mindset and attitude about what it means to be a black man. Too many black men feel hopeless and powerless as a result of the constant barrage of negative images and stories coming not only from the white biased media but also from the black media that definitely contributes to the negative narratives about what it means to be black. So what can be done to support black men in overcoming the multiplicity of challenges they face on a daily basis? How can we help change the mindset of black men and empower them to know they have unlimited potential and the future is extremely bright for those who are willing to put forth the effort? I believe the key to resolving a large percentage of challenges facing black them is to support them in changing their own inner narrative about themselves. The good book says; "be ye not conformed to this world, but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind." Herein lies the key to transforming black men's lives. We must be willing to encourage black men to examine the internal negative beliefs and perceptions they have about themselves. We must engage them in a dialog about what they believe, how they feel and what they think about being black. Too many times their inner dialog about themselves is so negative they have no choice other than to act out that negative internal dialog. Therefore it is incumbent upon us to change their inner dialog by providing resources that support them in changing their negative mindset and attitude. This can be accomplished through things like workshops and seminars, reading books, listening to audio programs and creating support groups that provide safe spaces for them to speak openly about the highs and lows, joys and pain of being a black man. When we help them change their inner dialog about themselves it will give them a sense of optimism and hope for the future which will then encourage them to develop a positive mindset and attitude that will keep them from falling victim to negative media generated narratives about who they are. It is definitely possible for any black man to live an extraordinary life. We are all capable of creating inner peace, dynamic health, great relationships and financial abundance. To do so, a black man must be willing to take 100% responsibility for his life turning out the way he wants it to. The only way to do this is through changing his inner narrative about himself and recognizing that he has the capacity to do anything he sets his mind to.

Your journey to becoming a successful entrepreneur may well start here.: The New Face Of Entrepreneurship - An Entrepreneurs Guide To Joy Passion & Profits In Business Reviewed by Romuald Dzemo for Readers' Favorite Since I was 10 years old I've always known that I wanted to own my own business. I started my first company when I was 14 years old and I have been a serial entrepreneur ever since. Over the past 25 years or so I've started businesses and failed at business but there is something inside of me that keeps moving me forward. After several failed attempts I eventually found a business that I absolutely love and it allows me to do what I'm absolutely passionate about which is write and speak. Being an author (7 books now) and speaker is a dream come true for me because I've always loved books and love public speaking. So the old adage holds true; "if you do what you love you never have to work a day in your life." I absolutely love what I do because it gives me the opportunity to share my unique gifts and talents as a writer and a speaker with others through my books and speaking engagements. Few things are as rewarding and fulfilling then knowing that my words have encouraged someone to transform their lives by following some of the wisdom and information I've shared with them. I decided it was time for me to share the lessons I've learned as an entrepreneur with others to hopefully inspire and encourage upcoming entrepreneurs who are ready to join the entrepreneurial revolution. Therefore I've launched a new book and website dedicated to empower entrepreneurs to build businesses that change the world. You can learn more here: www.joypassionprofit.com So I thought I would start a conversation about being an entrepreneur. If you happen to be one what is the most important lesson you've learned about yourself by becoming an entrepreneur? If you've never been one, what is the one question you would like to ask an entrepreneur that might help you become one. Join the conversation and post your comments and questions below.
  11. So my question to you is why does "black media" also focus primarily on negative news? Why do we still share stories that degrade us and put us down instead of stories that lift us up? No matter what good we do or experience we still hold on to this victim mentality that America or white people are holding us down. Why do people like myself get accused of being a sellout simply because of my optimism? Everyone is entitled to their opinion and here is mine. There has never been a better time to be alive on this planet than right now. I believe despite the obvious challenges, black men are positioned to experience unprecedented levels of success in the world today. I believe it is possible for any black man to live an extraordinary life and yet very few black men are even willing to read my books or come to my seminars because they simply do not believe they can succeed. The real problem is a mindset that is shaped by a negative biased media. Too many of us are unwilling to break free from this mindset and accept the fact that we are the masters of our own destiny and no one can keep us from attaining it except us.
  12. I have to agree with Cynique. Although the impact of his protest may not be immediately apparent, his protest impacted the consciousness of this country in profound ways. It brought awareness to some very basic facts. There are still lots of people who are racists, our government isn't capable of addressing racial issues and our current president is absolutely clueless when it comes to race relations. But I still believe in the goodness of people and I still believe in this country. As an optimist, I believe his protest actually accomplished his goal of bringing awareness to the issue of police brutality and eventually America will live up to the creed that all men are created equal. I stand with Kaepernick!
