Young leaders are the pillars of future society. Yet being a young leader is challenging, and so any lessons or tips for young leaders are always welcome. Come in Randy D. Williams.
Also known as “the Generation Changer”, this .MEr dedicated a part of his life to inspiring and teaching young leaders.
So let us see what Randy is all about.
The Cost Of Knowledge: Tips For Young Leaders
Randy paid a rather steep price for the awareness of the value of time and purpose early on. He lost his brothers, one to HIV and the other to gun violence, both at the age of under 25.
The harsh awakening prompted him to decide to use his time on Earth to make an impact by doing service to the community in the best way possible. And that was by teaching youth about entrepreneurship, helping them become empowered, and creating a flock of young leaders. Really, the tips for young leaders that he offers are invaluable.
Randy has authored several books, including:
Be a King: Recognize the King Within! This is book designed to help men recognize who they are and lead them to their destiny. Although written with men in mind, its principles apply to women as well.
7 Questions Every Young Leader Should Ask Themselves. Randy wants to equip young leaders with tools that will accelerate their path to success. So he wrote this book just for that. In Randy’s words, it offers insight, advice, and stories that will challenge leaders to reach life’s highest heights. Some of the topics touched upon are: choosing the right friends, selecting a mentor, developing good work ethic, and others.
Randy is well aware of the power of knowledge and he is not afraid to share it.
Currently, he often speaks to colleges, businessmen, and high school students across the country.
Measuring Time With Style
What makes Randy D. Williams unique? It’s his electrifying talent for making changes across industries and fields of life. He’s founded Talley & Twine, the company specialized in designing and manufacturing luxury watches.
But Randy began his venture through a Kickstarter crowdfunding campaign, and it grew from door-to-door sales to a seven-figure brand. What made this impressive success possible was a few things:
- identifying a gap in the market between super-expensive and mid-level brands,
- finding ways to cater to the needs of the customers, and
- his high-quality timepieces and accessories which stand as a testament to accuracy, style, and durability, all handcrafted at a highly favorable price.
But he didn’t only found his timepiece manufacturing venture. Randy also founded projects which aim to make knowledge available to those who wish to make their mark on the world.
One of the initiatives Randy launched was Project 1322, which mentors and teaches youth about entrepreneurship so that they could become leaders in their communities and pillars for future generations.
Investing In The Future
As if his accomplishments were not enough, Randy also invests in several business ventures through his company Ovation Holdings, Ltd. And he frequently delivers motivational lectures to various audiences throughout the country.
In his own words, his timepiece company is open to embracing challenges because they will learn the most through struggles. Also, Randy is eager to share the lessons in books and lectures to the benefit of the young leaders of the future.
Randy notes that Talley & Twine was named after an area which formerly had a bad rep for crime and violence. But now, it has allowed former residents to become property owners.
The message which the name of Randy’s company aims to impart is that life is an open-ended story. You do not have to finish the way you started. You have the ability to change dramatically with the right amount of effort and commitment.
According to Randy D. Williams, to be successful means to claim ownership of your time, energy and resources and bring value to the world.
He has also noted that the more people he is able to help and inspire, the more successful he feels that he has become. And if that’s the case, then we definitely hope that Randy will become even more successful!
