Win The Poverty Powerball

In a varied and interesting life, Derrich grew up in poverty in one of the most dangerous cities in the United States, served in Iraq and Afghanistan, and led cybersecurity teams at Fortune 500 Companies. Now he is embarking on a new path, writing books that help people overcome the poverty mindset. Poverty Powerball is the first in a planned series.

Derrich Phillips was born and raised in the city of Gary, Indiana. He earned a Master of Business Administration degree from Grand Canyon University and a bachelor’s degree in Occupational Education from Wayland Baptist University. Derrich currently works as the Founder and Chief Mentor at Mentor Select. He lives in Dallas, Texas, with his wife Requill and their dog Empress.

In his spare time Derrich sky-dives and enjoys running marathons. For a year he served as Chairman for the North Texas Veteran Resource Network, which helps service members transition out of the military into the corporate world. He currently volunteers at the Prison Entrepreneurship Program, which teaches prisoners communication and business skills to help them start businesses upon their release.

Derrich would dearly love to leave a lasting legacy as a remarkable husband, father, philanthropist, and servant leader. It is his dream to help over 1 million people break the cycle of generational poverty, and he hopes that his books will go some way to achieving this.

I believe that there is a great need for the development of mentoring programs throughout the country for high school students. There are many ways to start working toward one's career. However, many high school students do not have a clue as to how to go about focusing their energy toward getting a career that they would love doing. If a student is college bound, they need to have a good understanding as to what they are getting ready to enter. College is not high school; therefore, they need to understand the demands of becoming a college student. In addition, they need to have the understanding that their choice of career may not even require that they must attend college. The high school years can slip pass very quickly, whereas leaving a student very rapidly questioning which road to take to advance them toward their choice of career. A mentoring program can help them to better focus in on the direction that they should travel to reach the goal of having a career that they will love.
You all have inspired me to get moving on some of my social media pages. I could definitely use some help with getting likes and followers. I figured I would start a post where we can all post our social media and add each other. I'll post mine in the comments. I will also share your business on my page as well.
I want to create a business phone number separate from my personal line how can I do that and use my phone? if I wanted to send out a mass text to people what could I use for that? Is there a service where I could use for voicemail for people that prefer to call in or have it sent to their phone?
