THE YOUNG EXEKUTIVE CARL MICHEL RELEASES “365 HIP-HOP: DAILY MOTIVATIONAL QUOTES”
Carl Michel, also known as The Young ExeKutive, announces the pre-order of his book, “365 Hip-Hop: Daily Motivational Quotes.” The book, which is being released through Godzchild Publications, is available for the list price of $19.99.
Included in the inspirational book are quotes from many popular hip hop and R&B celebrities, including Beyoncé, A$AP Rocky, Fabolous, Rick Ross, and many other household names. The quotes from celebrities are illustrated through a rare and unique artistic technique, making it a memorable keepsake.
Publishing a book of quotes was a no-brainer for Carl Michel, who goes by the moniker of The Young ExeKutive, as he is a young entrepreneur, who is on a mission to shift the mindset of the youth toward a brighter direction.
Born in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, Carl understands what it is like to lack some of life’s basic necessities. Carl spent the first few years of his life, in Haiti, watching his father use all his family’s resources to relocate to Stamford, CT. At a very young age, Carl developed a strong work ethic from observing his father work two, and sometimes three jobs, to provide for his wife and children.
Being raised in an underprivileged area of Stamford, Carl was introduced to the street life, hip-hop music, and other influences associated with urban culture. Although too fearful of his parents to ever personally participate in the use or distribution of drugs in his community, Carl found himself naturally gravitating to those who did. They were the only people he saw with a lifestyle he admired.
A loving home and strong Christian values kept Carl out of trouble during his youth. Aspirations of being the first person in his family to earn a bachelor’s degree led him to the Earl G. Graves School of Business at Morgan State University in Baltimore, MD. As a city, Stamford has only seen a fraction of the drugs and violence that Baltimore’s city youth experiences on a daily basis.
For the first time, Carl found himself participating in all the things he was raised to avoid: sex, drugs, under-age drinking, and even gang violence. His influences weren’t limited to just his social life, either. Carl’s scholastic-standing quickly fell from Dean’s List to Academic Probation. After a night of reckless partying and high-speed driving with “friends,” Carl ended up in a severe car accident. In one night, Carl lost his car, his cell phone, and academic scholarship, but by the grace of God, Carl and his three passengers walked away unscathed.
What was thought to be a devastating moment in his life, he learned, was really a blessing in disguise. Through that incident, Carl was able to meet a classmate who introduced him to a company called LegalShield. LegalShield enabled Carl to be around positive, like-minded people, as well as be mentored by wealthy men and women who were legally living his dream lifestyle. Carl spent years engulfed in a business culture that promoted faith, family, and finances. Books and audio on personal development shaped his mindset, presentation, and leadership skills. To continue to build on his associations, Carl went on to become a valued member of the Alpha Iota Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc., who motto is “Achievement in Every Field of Human Endeavor.” Upon graduating from college in 2009, Carl was also recognized as LegalShield’s youngest Executive Director in the state of Maryland.
The Young ExeKutive, Carl Michel, uses business principles and the positive aspects of Hip Hop music to motivate people to make better decisions. Carl understands the adversities and struggles of today’s urban culture and can help cultivate these young minds to see beyond their current circumstances, in order to strive for greatness and live an abundant life. By being completely transparent and providing more examples of achievement, the youth can see something worth striving for. This website will be a platform to highlight the achievements of young brothers and sisters across the country.
Although Michel is a speaker who is making appearances around the country, telling his story to audiences who are fascinated and inspired by his words of wisdom, he hopes that with the publication of “363 Hip-Hop: Daily Motivational Quotes,” that he is able to shine a positive light on the youth who admire hip hop artists and their unique contributions to society through their lyrical content and messages. Through his daily inspirational quotes, The Young ExeKutive uses business principles and positive aspects of music to motivate.
