Think & Grow Rich, A Black Choice – A Legend Reborn
Posted by Relentless on June 5th, 2017
So what are we talking about here? Maybe a brand that is so well-known that its "underdog" has been slept on? Or are we talking about a diamond in the rough that has been kept and protected all these years by an elite group who have been affected by it? OK so let's cut to the chase: you all know about the Think & Grow Rich brand which has indelibly left an imprint on business throughout the world. But did you know that Napoleon Hill, the author of Think & Grow Rich, authored the first hundred pages of the Think & Grow Rich, (a Black Choice)
manuscript? And did you know that the Napoleon Hill Foundation called Dr DENNIS KIMBRO author/professor to complete the book? And let's take it a step further and I'd like to ask you this... if you are familiar with Think & Grow Rich (a Black Choice), as well as the book's author, Dr. Dennis Kimbro, did it affect your life as it has so many of the people I know personally?
Well my testimonial will be shared in its entirety however, Clark Atlanta University Professor, Dr DENNIS KIMBRO and his teachings are single-handedly responsible for the major most success in my life. I learned of him, studied his philosophies and put them to work. Here I am now years later, a world renowned author with arguably the largest debut book deal ever for a black author, and my legacy I contribute to Napoleon Hill and his Think & Grow Rich concepts, and then furthermore, Dr. Kimbro's Think & Grow Rich (a Black Choice), a book I read close to 20 times while locked up in federal prison. And now, years later I've been blessed to be partnered with Dr. KIMBRO for life. I have taken his teachings, mastered my craft, and its drawn me closer and closer to him, to the point that he CROSSED MY PATH in a dark hotel ballroom where I was producing a livestream just over a year ago. Talk about the law of attraction, and you have no more profound testimonial than my own.
I would like you to watch this clip and share it and tell folks about this book and it's legend. More to come!
Note: as of the partnership, Relentless has now teamed up with The Mastermind Collective to assist in molding the web project into a much broader undertaking. Stay tuned for more details.
I would like you to watch this clip and share it and tell folks about this book and it's legend. More to come!
Below: Dr. Dennis Kimbro joined us "On Top Atlanta" in a powerful interview with show host and co-producer Rolonda Rochelle
Below is the event where Dr. Kimbro and I made a serious connection. I saw that he was serious about his stuff. I also saw where I could play a role. But it wasn't until he asked me a year later "Would you produce Think & Grow Rich (a Black Choice) that I thought I died and came back from Heaven.
Dr. Kimbro is featured in the "Law of Attraction" Magazine June 2017

My Latest Activities… Service To Others
Posted by Relentless on October 24th, 2016
This Coming Saturday, Oct 29th is a pretty big day in this small town where I live (Conyers, Georgia).
First of all, there’s a stage play that I encouraged playwright Carolyn Christian to bring here (to Conyers, Ga) because we are “dry” where it relates to variety and entertainment. We basically have the movies and the bowling alley (for the safe entertainment). The nightclubs have facilitated melee’s or there’s a fool who owns it, and they can HAVE that ratchet experience all to themselves. Bottom line, if you don’t travel for 30 min you’ll never find the caliber of entertainment I bring to this town. I brought the phenomenal saxaphonist Mike Phillips and the legendary comedic actress Bernadette Stanis (Thelma of Good Times), amongst a host of other stars including Derwin Daniels, Mr. Jones, the amazing Azure McCall, the meistros like Mr Jones, and Gordon Elliot… there are just too many for me to spit in this quick update, but in time I will edit this list.
Meanwhile, aside from the play (and the short film I produced to promote the play), there are so many other things going on…
I’m, editing WHOGONNACHAECKME… more details about that on www.whogonnacheckme.com. This is a film lonely based on the lottery winners life (in North Carolina). More on that in a minute. I’m also producing my “Relentless Aaron’s Erotic Tales” that I intend to turn into a killer web-series, all the while exercising/perfecting my filmmaking skills. We’ve already completed and released part one of that project… take a look. Click HERE) “SET ME FREE” & “HOME INVASION” are still in motion/awaiting their place in line, but up next? LOVE BOX! We’re VERY excited about LOVE BOX, a series that unites Boxing and Love and all the complexities of the lives behind the gloves in the Relentless storytelling fashion! How can this lose!?
There have been a few other projects, but I’m on the move here. Just wanted to tell you all what was on my plate. God bless and thank you! BTW still looking for an assistant producer!
God Bless You Gene. Thanks for the good things you did for me
RIP Gene Schell, who passed away due to a motorcycle accident
Thanks for your continued support!

POLICE ARE KILLING OUR ABILITY TO REASON
Posted by Relentless on September 29th, 2016
I have watched just as many of these viral (and reckless) interactions with citizens and police; just as many as you have, and I have been convinced (for years) that the only way out… the only solution that has immediate impact on a situation (most situations) is to “stand down.” You’ve seen “stand down” yelled in movies. We’ve seen “retreat!” shouted throughout history… we’ve learned to “lose the battle, win the war” but those methods are mostly references of older generation. While the younger generation has been raised most radically, not by Elvis and his popping his leg, but by Michael and his pumping (and grabbing) his groin & genitals. This generation has been guided by NWA “Fuck the Police” and Ice-T “Cop Killer” and even Malcolm X “by Any Means Necessary.” We’ve been taught that “off the hook” is popular in reality shows, and that you can win awards and earn praise for being the worst imaginable human being “Training Day.” We see all of this evidenced in movies, books, music, etc and we keep asking “why?” We don’t come up with answers or solutions, but we’re quick to say “wrong!” or to point fingers, but when do we take personal responsibility for our actions? We wanna “turn-up” and get loud and fight back and Lord knows we NEED an enemy to make our day… to affirm our so-called “beliefs.” And still, there’s no answer for that next dead boy… that next guy shot while in his seatbelt in his car… while selling CDs or cigarettes. We can’t bring back a woman who is said to have hung herself after wrongly arrested imprisoned. Before you utter your next “coon” broadstroke/because you’re not able to think up something more applicable…
NO QUESTION that this shit is backwards, killing us and needs fixing. But its too late for all that cuz I’m already dead. You’re already dead. We’re all already dead at the hands of the rogue cop. I know, silly and extreme, but thats how many of us sound. But check it…
The reality is (again) that you can for the most part avoid the BS. So many of us (including myself) “talk back” or we wanna hold court in the street, and there are so many other variables. Even if you don’t say a word and have your hands up… I’m reminded of Charles Kinsey, he’s the behavior therapist in Florida helping the kid with mental challenges; had his hands up, he was on the ground and they shot him anyway… I get it. But it’s isolated. All of these incidents… most of them, isolated with various reasons why shit happens. I know it looks bad, mainly due to our viewing choices on social media, but everyone in the world isn’t being shot by police. However my open is that the overwhelming way to avoid it, the way that mostly assures that we get out alive is “kumbaya.” Not yelling, arguing, and def not calling 911.
In any case, if you are facing a gun, knife, oncoming Mack truck, you’re already fucked. Now, lets get you safe. Lets get to the point here… how do we avoid it? We can’t get into these cops homes to see that their personal relationships are in tact. We can’t get into their heads to see if they are psychosomatically balanced. We can’t even tell if they’re scared of Black people and/or that they want to kill Black people. Wish we could read minds; we can’t. Wish we could freeze everything and find the “big fix”, we can’t. Wish we could get rid of entire law enforcement armies and put all guns in a melting pot. Nope, we can’t. So the easy alternative that we DO have control over is the way we address shit. “kumbaya…” and I know so many of us are stubborn, stuck in our thoughts and the allegiances we have with others who think and act the same, but in most cases (as we address all this BS) the major most solution to escape harm and harms way is to kumbaya our way out. That, or go ahead and fight. I’d acknowledge I knew you when your face shows on the 6o’clock news. Promise. And AMEN

The “DEFYLABELS” Campaign is Well Underway
Posted by Relentless on February 7th, 2016
This is more of a social agenda than I even imagined! The type of people who I’m connecting with, others that I’m helping to share their message and purpose, and then (of course) overall, I am further exercising my film making abilities. Its a WIN-WIN-WIN! We’ve filmed many these and are in editing mode now, so stay tuned for when we decide to “go in” again, with a 2nd quarter DefyLabels campaign. Meanwhile, enjoy the work we’ve done thus far. Our Facebook Page that is dedicated to the initiative, and our Youtube channel where its all posted. Thanks! Rock on! #Defylabels #defyinglabels Continue to defy those labels!

#DefyLables – The New Agenda
Posted by Relentless on February 2nd, 2016
It’s pretty awesome to be creative. It’s true that everything’s been done before (at least in some part) we all take from what we see hear and feel and experience. I recently jumped on the defylabels agenda; really because I also own a mini coop and I understand the allegiance that owners have for the brand. However, to defied labels also seems to make sense with my current agenda which is to complete a film pilot whogonnacheckme. I’ve been working with some amazing actors and we are pretty much finished with the filming and now it’s time for editing and negotiations. It was inevitable that I should bury all my time into filmmaking. Since I have so many novels and because the film process takes so long and is so whimsical, not to mention I have all the wherewithal to make films myself, it only makes sense to follow through and stick with it and score as much as I have scored with my knob. So stay in tune with my grind and I promise you will be entertained and your total girl and along the way I will raise your awareness. God bless you and thank you for your allegiance.

Casting Call – WhoGonnaCheckMe Film
Posted by Relentless on January 14th, 2016
Audition today: 9am @ 1012 south main st, CONYERS ha 30012
9am Saturday casting and Rehersal done by noon Marie just hit it big time. She had the 188 million dollar winning ticket for the Powerball drawing. Suddenly, her 4 kids, the trailer home and the searching for a job were an old life she’d never see again. Her new life was one she planned right there on Good Morning America: “I’m gonna first give 10 percent to my church. Then I’m gonna set up my kids education.” From that point on she had the sentiment of the American public. “She’s blessed.” “She’s deserving.” But soon the demons of her past emerged; the jealous cousins. Her baby-father’s criminal mind and the actions, the law enforcement and consequences that came with it. The attack seemed to be never-ending.Casting is set for Saturday morning 9am. This is my biggest project to date. I’m super excited about everyone’s support. You all are amazing, from the co-writers, to the hungry actors and the folks who are granting us locations. I’m humbled, I’m grateful and ITS ON! #whogonnacheckme

Why You Are Ef’in Up The Love?
Posted by Relentless on December 30th, 2015
I thinking of writing more about this, maybe incorporating you as co-conspirators on the project, because I know I’m not the only one going thru these things. And as much as I’ve tried to separate this from my reality, its just not possible. So excuse me if you feel this about you/its not. Its about our practices. You won’t see me naming names. There appears to be a cancer that has penetrated our community of grown folk and maybe I can address it in a true-to-life project. Maybe we can do an anthology of experiences in one book and help others so we don’t repeat the same nonsense? #thoughts
So while I’m a work-a-coholic, I’m still a human being who drives, survives, relies on and for true love. And because I would like to have that again in my life in the realest way, I still must “vet” candidates. This includes you if you live in another state/full of promises… this includes you if you like to “play” in my in-box/beating around the bush with no real purpose or sense of commitment. This includes you if you like to pass judgement from text messages instead of hearing a mans voice, or better yet seeing him face to face. I think it’s childish that anyone should formulate and even dissolve your possibilities of happiness, friendship and true love from a fucking text message. Any of my real friends CALL ME. They might drop everything they’re doing to help me, as I would for them. My real friends don’t even need to speak to me for weeks, months or years, but we’re bonded. And if there was ever a question that needed to be answered/one that was heavily concerning them and required urgency, the LAST place I’d see them is dancing around on social media before they came to address the urgency. Your mom, your sister or brother is facing a crisis that requires your attention, but you got them on hold because you’re too busy seeking social acceptance online? Whoa. This is why it’s important to vet people. The vetting process is where you’re going to learn about people and their bad habits. Once you realize what the habits are it’s up to you whether to accept or decline or make concessions and sacrifices.
As for me, it’s normal procedure to get you know you better, especially if I’m gonna give you my heart or body. So then you’re gonna wanna know my sexual appetite. Never mind dancing around the idea? You may as well know, yes! I’m a damned normal, hungry, fire-breathing dragon in bed! Just like you are, (or just what you want) except you try and hide or sugarcoat it! Omg but YOU GAVE BIRTH! That shit din happen by the US Postal service? You fucked, got fucked, probably cried Holy this/Holy-that, Jesus Joseph & Mary. And that’s the stuff I AM mentioning. Nevermind what’s hidden behind closed doors. Point is, we can’t be hypocritical boo. We must leave margin for error, especially if we didn’t grow up together/never spent years in one another’s company, don’t even know one another’s parents. If you want a lifetime commitment from a guy you cannot look at him strange becuz He express himself, his wants $ desires? What do you want him to LIE to you? Don’t you WANT him to be clear and up front for you? Personally, it’s a must that I know who is behind that woman I’m courting. A lot to lose over here/I don’t know what YOU are working with. As for me, there’s a legacy to maintain and live out; a legacy that must outlive me.
And so, I’m still dating; unfortunately. Me, a man who is…
- about his business,
- no baby-momma-drama,
- successful on so many levels,
- a committed man
- head on straight
- talented, yadda yadda yadda…
So Queen, while you are an awesome woman in so many ways, here’s what I’ve noticed about you:
- You’re scared. sensitive & untrusting. It’s hard for you to relax because (if you’re pretty) you’ve likely been the target of many suitors. And if you’re getting older, you’ve also been thru a lot, so it’s hard.
- You’re jaded by a past and still have luggage that causes you to pre-judge. It blinds you and disables you from seeing the real-deal… the raw truth before you. With all the signals coming at you, from your girlfriends, your ratchet reality shows and all the other influences in your diet, it can be confusing. If you don’t know who YOU are
- You jump to conclusions and assume. You can be partially wrong or all wrong/it’s a jump nevertheless. There’s an old saying “When u assume, you make an ASS out of U and ME… ASS-U-ME.
- I’ll say it: Too many of you are weed-smokers, possibly the reason for your poor judgement #braincells
oh this is a big one
- You THRIVE on and PERPETUATE miscommunication! I think that is your caffeine/some of you. You just EXPECT THE WORST and get high off of the possibilities!
Yes, an You want to prove that you can “do it yourself” that you “don’t need no man to do it for you” so on and so forth. I’ve seen this get so severe that even if the woman is in physical pain and I can help… no, I’m not a Doctor, but I know some things. And this particular woman had a severe shoulder pain that I relieved by my massage skills and the TLC that I put into it… I relieved her in the emergency room. (“Omg I can’t believe you came here!” She cried), and then the pain came back a week or so later/when she clearly needed me again.
“I’ve been crying all day” she’d tell me on the phone, I guess she was too proud to “give in” or to call when that no-strings-attached relief was a phone call away. So I was sort of helpless. When I explained all of that to her, I just got apologies. #shrug Anyhow, that sense of “denial” is something I’ve seen before. Just more interruption of the Black Love we all sign up for in the first place.
And there’s one more:
- You’re “thirsty,” presumptuous, and/or your self esteem is challenged where it concerns your body and few extra pounds. That is a cancer swimming around in your head. We’re on a date and you feel you hafta make an excuse about your weight or why you don’t work out? smh. If THAT was an issue or concern of mine what makes you think we’d be spending quality time together in the first place? Am I having the pity-party with you? No, I don’t expect you to adopt the fitness lifestyle just because thats what I do/not right away anyhow. You may need some motivation; who knows? But to bring it up in the form of an excuse or to rationalize your situation is not a good thing. Yes, you should be on a healthy path, but you should nevertheless be as happy with you as I was when we met. Period.
So while distance, some miscommunication and other mashups, smash-ups, fuck-ups and fails have been part of the dating experience, and while the aforementioned trends have been all too obvious, I will not give up looking for love and Mrs Right-for-me. Shit, with all the women crying about “I can’t find a man” you’d think they’d spill out of a faucet for me, considering I’m a successful, respectful, purposeful heterosexual male? Considering I’m a better candidate than many women can IMAGINE, much less meet and date. I hafta say even to you, “I’m a way better choice than your past choices?”
Okay, NOW you can “shake your head.”
But after you do that, consider these rules to help you in your choosing your future soulmate:
1) DON’T GO SOLELY ON WHAT PREACHER SAYS: I know this hurts a lot of you/so sorry. But Jesus was not White, Santa doesn’t exist, and there’s this thing about all police being righteous, upstanding keepers of the law… So, what every preacher says is not necessarily law… it may not even be helpful to you. He’s a great orator. He has some sage advice. But what he says does not necessarily or specifically apply to you. Be a better ACCESSOR of the information you’re importing. A woman I dated came to show me her engagement ring one day; she was prepared to marry a guy who THE CHURCH APPROVED for her? But a few weeks later I saw her again: “Where’s your ring?” And she told me, “We called it off.” Lord help me. How many women are “trapped” in situations because of what the church or what the preacher endorses?
2) STOP JUMPING TO CONCLUSIONS! Text messages will kill your party EVERY TIME! I’ve had text messages come to me out of sequence, and the next thing you know I’m getting a text that assumes the worst: “well it was nice knowing you” (or something to that effect). There’s also a lack of tempo in a text and (if the two of you are not on the same page at all times) the text can be read wrong. We’re not always the best communicators, depending on what we’re doing, if we’re busy, on the run, multi-tasking etc. This goes for authors too! We’re not always the best communicators, tbt
3) BE A BETTER ACCESSOR: this may take timing patience, and you may never get it right. But, if a man is telling you by his words, actions and convictions that he wants to be “the one” as in “committed relationship”, please give that idea some FAITH? Some CONSIDERATION? I mean, before you say, text or do anything DUMB? Unless he gives you some SERIOUS REASON as to why that’s a lie, or if you’re not REALLY CONVINCED, then have a little patience with him.
