His mission is to inspire people to improve themselves so they can become better partners. He ultimately became a certified coach through his blog, which he started after his Mother passed away from Multiple Sclerosis. His mother has been his biggest influence in life; she taught him about character, selflessness, work ethic, and love. As a child Troy dreamed of becoming a professional athlete but he quickly realized he wasn’t as big, strong, or fast as the competition. Troy’s greatest business role models and influencers are Lamar and Ronnie Tyler. They taught him about serving his audience and the business of blogging.
When I asked this man of wonderment if he could interview anyone from his life living or dead, who would it be, ladies wait for it… He said his wife. He’d like to know if he had lived up to her expectations and to see if he has done right behind the message he’s putting out into the world. He’s proud to boast about being a good husband and trying to build a great family. He also let me in on a little secret: Baby #1 is on the way.
NN: Troy, how would you like to be remembered?
TS: I would like to be remembered as a difference maker and one who didn’t just talk it but he lived it, and because of that he had influence on people in life and in love.
NN: If this was to be your very last conversation, is there anything you’d want to say?
TS: I would want to tell my late Mother that I love her and I would thank her for helping me to find my passion and my purpose so that I could help make a difference in the world. Then I would tell everyone to “start with you!”
NN: If you could do anything now, what would you do and why?
TS: I would do just what I am doing now! I’ve found my passion and my purpose and I enjoy every minute of it!
Troy’s accomplishments include being invited to be a staff writer for the award winning website www.BlackandMarriedWithKids.com. He was also invited to write for celebrity matchmaker Paul C. Brunson, and was invited by the HuffPost live, were he wrote his first E-Book, Teach Me How To Love; A Man’s Journey Toward and Through Marriage. He is currently working on his first full book, which he has credited as his ultimate accomplishment.
NN: Troy one last question. What lessons has your work life taught you? What was one piece of history that stuck with you?
TS: I’ve learned so many invaluable lessons but the one that is always consistent is that true change starts with SELF. It starts with being willing to engage in some true self-reflection and moving from a victim mentality to a victor mentality. One piece of history that stuck with me was the election of President Obama but not just his election but the representation of his family being the first family. I believe it gave a much-needed model of family and “black love!”
