LEVAR G. WILSON
My name is Levar Wilson. I am a Christian, a husband, a father, an entrepreneur, a traveling bumpkin, an author, and a Veteran. My story is one that I hope you can relate to. I was taught to get good grades in school so that I could get a good job and have a “good life”. In 1996, I found the “solution” and enlisted in the U.S. Army. After 14-years of service that included multiple combat tours, I concluded the Soldier chapter of my life and focused my attention to being a better husband, father, and friend.
Taking the “go to school, get good grades, get a good job” mindset into Corporate America, I thought it would serve me well. I had the “experience” and three college degrees. Hard work always pays off, right? Imagine my surprise when learned that I was getting paid the same salary as many co-workers that “specialized” in doing the bare minimum. Fair? Hardly not. Overworked. Underpaid. No upward progression possible. I literally felt like a lion trapped in the cage of my cubicle.
I had this dull feeling in my gut telling me that I deserved better. And so began my search for the key to unlock my chains. A way that would give my life a deeper purpose not only to help my family but others in similar situations. A way that would give them hope. In 2012, I gratefully found the key that I was looking for. Our paths have crossed for a reason as I do not believe in coincidences.
