About the Author
My name is Lyndall C. Medearis, Jr. and I was born and raised in Philadelphia, the city known for Brotherly Love, but now I reside in Bellaire, Texas. I am currently in a state of marital transition and the father of 3 wonderful children named Jessica (19), Lyndall III (9) and Joshua (4). I am a veteran of the US Navy and a former financial services executive.
So far I have lived an incredible life. One with amazing highs and unbearable lows to say the least. One could even say that I have the kind of story that may one day be worthy of a book or movie.
I have accomplished many things in my first 43 years of life but there is one that I alone have attained. I am the only African American male who earned more than $1,000,000 in commissions and earned more than $2,000,000 in managerial compensation. I did all of this in just 15 years. Most that break the million dollar ceiling do so either in sales or in management, but never both.
With that on my resume, one would think that I was pretty successful and earning a great living and that was once the case. But unfortunately my awesome career was cut short by a personal relationship of almost 30 years. I was well on my way to earning a seven figure living when tragedy struck.
The details are too much to get into here and now but I created this blog to weave that and other experiences into my opinions on life, sports, business, etc. It is my ultimate hope that my readers will be able to learn from successes as well as my failures. Life can be a whole lot easier when we stop playing checkers and start playing chess. If you love analogies you should enjoy what I have to offer in the many posts to come…enjoy.
