Cursory: Business Savy man who had once dropped out of school has added one more thing to his myriad of achievements. Amidst all his already successful business establishments and the nonprofit, he has launched a Financial Literacy Academy.
37-year-old Brandon Williams, a high school dropout turned entrepreneur from Miami Gardens, Florida, has teamed with his 18-year-old son to launch CEO Financial Literacy Academy, one of the only such non-profit schools in the country that is Black-owned.
Brandon dropped out of high school in 2003, but later went back to earn his GED, and is now a successful entrepreneur and author.
Brandon’s business ventures include CEO Realty Partners, a real estate brokerage; CEO Health and Wealth Group, a financial services and insurance firm; and CEO Security School, where students can earn a D-license and a G-License that would enable them to work as armed security officers.
He is also the author of Breaking The Financial Curse which aims to help thousands of people from all around the world to protect their families, protect their assets, protect their homes, protect their finances and most importantly, protect their lives.
Speaking about the book, “I feel bad when I see people who work all their life, save all their money up for retirement, then have an unforeseen health condition that wipes it all away. Similarly, when they buy their first home or investment property but have a stroke, heart attack, cancer, or any health condition, the government forces them to sell their assets to pay for medical expenses. I was sick and tired of seeing this over and over again.”
Williams is a young man raised in the tough streets of Miami by his mother, grandmother, and grandfather. Throughout his journey, he endured numerous challenges and setbacks.
Some of his challenges include having grown up with a father in prison, being raised by a single mother, dropping out of high school, and being a teen father. However, at the age of 18, his life changed for the better. He decided to take charge of his own life and career, which enabled him to start his own business.
Williams has now dedicated his life to serving others through the CEO Financial Literacy Academy, a non-profit that he and his now 18-year-old son started to help underserved youth & young adults worldwide to Break the Financial Curse for them & their families.
Williams has raised and trained his son Timothy as an entrepreneur since he was a young boy. His son graduated high school early with a 700-credit score and started a profitable business at the age of 16 under the direction of his father.
Williams coached his son, Timothy, on how to build his personal and business credit profile.
The goal of their non-profit is to duplicate the success that he’s had with his son with underserved youth and youth adults all over the country by giving them access to the information, tools, trades, and more, through financial literacy and entrepreneurship programs and workshops.
