EBONY: If there was one thing you could get through to young Black men about success, what would it be?

GL: I would tell Black men not rely solely on conventional education to find answers. Use the world as your classroom. Read books, meet people, and visit places. Take risks. Open your minds. Don’t reject a concept or an idea until you’ve tried it. The biggest thing you can do to help your chances in business is to be impressionable. Meet a lot of people and make new friends. Share your ideas and collaborate. Get up and make it happen, because nobody will make this happen for you.
