Embracing Technical Innovation

Technical innovation invalidates existing business models. That’s why it’s become so important for business executives around the world. Technology is evolving along an exponential curve, and entire industries are collapsing as new (mostly digital) business models provide better outcomes for fewer dollars. Technical innovation generally comes from the edges of industries, not the center. It comes from ‘adjacent markets’ often catching executives by surprise.

We have uncovered and implemented an unimagined Blockchain solution that has taken it beyond cryptocurrency,” Bitcoin was the first application of blockchain protocol. Since 2009 when it was officially launched, the bitcoin blockchain has never been hacked. This distributed public ledger technology is now finding its way into hundreds of different applications. In particular, supply chain management, capital formation, and digital identity are leading use cases. Its popularity is part of a larger trend from centralized to decentralized structures. Ironically, the industries that are most threatened by blockchain technology (banks and insurance companies) are the ones investing most aggressively in its development.

SHATTERPROOF: The Art of Perseverance

We all face challenges, and my intention of sharing my story is to inspire you to believe it is possible to overcome the obstacles we face in life. Raised in the midst of domestic violence and abuse, I’ve overcome earth-shaking tragedies such as the murder of my mother. After failing grade-school, I lacked reading comprehension but still entered the military at the age of 18. 10 years later of active duty and early retirement led me to pursue and to obtain four degrees focused on business and technology. Now, as the founder and CEO of BSI Solutions and Creative Relief Solutions, I have helped several entrepreneurs and business owners achieve their ambitions and aspirations.

  • Accomplish your dreams
  • Tips to overcome any adversity
  • Be inspired to achieve your greatness

“Overcome your challenges with determination to achieve your greatness and defy the odds stacked against you. You can do it.” Dr. Kendrick Carroll


As a young boy from a small city in Georgia, I was exposed to a significant amount of domestic violence, child abuse and gangs. Despite the discouragement I received at the hands of others, I was able to turn my tragedies into victories. Overcoming obstacles in life led me to become a retired veteran and successful entrepreneur. Inside are heart-wrenching accounts of traumatic events that I have experienced along with doses of inspiration on how I made it through and ways you can too. It is my hope that my story inspires my readers to push through any form of adversity they may face and to bring about change.
