My long-time friend who's closer than a brother, Freeman White, III joins me on The :26 to talk about overcoming adversity. Freeman opens up about the sudden passing of his father nine years ago, college football injuries, and the funny "tough love" we were both dealt from his Pops. Freeman discusses the impact of his father's legacy on him and how he plans on passing it on to his son, Freeman IV. Don't let his smile or demeanor fool you into thinking there's not more than meets the eye. Freeman is representative of the best of us. Those who take life's blows, don't make excuses, and carry on with a smile. Hats off to my man, Freemo!!!!!!!
Florida Realtors' 2019 President, Eric Sain takes a moment from a very productive World Strategic Forum to explain why it's important for agents and organizations to be in a room with global leaders. Neal couldn't resist the urge to ask an off the cuff question regarding President Sain's leadership advice either.
Errol Chung, founder of Miami DMT, shares his thoughts on the necessity of intense focus and positioning yourself in a noisy and busy world. We dive into what it takes to sustain a brand/image verses creating a gimmick.

We finish the interview on a personal note as Errol takes about the high price he paid to create Miami DMT, strained family relationships, and his desire to get artists & creative paid their true worth. This was an amazing way to kick of our new series. Many thanks to Mr. Errol Chung for giving of his time and knowledge!

Ever chat with a mermaid? Unknowingly, I sat down with the self-proclaimed "Madeira Beach Mermaid" and found out what drives her to be more than is required of average (yuck) people. Cyndee Haydon has been/is a lot of things, but short of passion and courage are NOT on the list. Whether taking on political issues that threaten the well-being of her clients and friends or singing karaoke with her husband, Jack, (you'll love their choice of song), I'm willing to bet you will find something endearing and refreshing to take away from this interview. As hard as we tried, Cyndee & I didn't make it long into the interview before the antics begin. Buckle up and enjoy the ride of The :26.
