We had the good fortune of connecting with Kenyon Glover and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Kenyon, what do you attribute your success to?
The most important factor behind my success has been my passion for my brand. I absolutely love what I do and I put everything into what I do. My tenacity to see my brand flourish and help change the world. I am determined to see my brand expand on a global scale. The fact that I started my brand with the mission to leaving behind a legacy that will be remembered forever.

Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
My art is being able to write books that will engage your mind and stir your soul. What sets me apart from others is my true genuine compassion to want to empower and uplift the broken people in this world. It truly pains me to see so many people that are broken, lost, hurt, defeated, depressed and buried in the darkness. I am excited about God giving me the assignment to be the light in their darkness, to uplift the fallen, the restore the brokenhearted and to encourage, motivate and inspire those people who have truly lost hope in mankind.

I have gotten to where I am today by going through and enduring the storms of life. I have been down in the valleys of darkness for a very long time. I have been down deep, deep in depression, attempted suicide on multiple occasions, fought off the constant barrage of negative voices in my head that constantly told me that I would never amount to anything and that I was not worthy of living. I have felt defeated and been through so much pain, hurt and adversity. And trust me when I say, it definitely was not easy at all. But God brought me through it. God gave me hope again. God made me believe in him and in myself again. He saved my mind, my spirit and my soul. And because of Him, I have been resurrected and reborn a new man that is now truly Faithful & Focused.

Along the way, I have learned that in order to get to where we should be, we have to go through the storms of life. In order to become everything that we were created to be, its important for us to endure through the pain, the difficulties, the struggles of life, the trials and tribulations, the opposition that life throws at us constantly because that is the only way where we will find out what we are made of. Its the only way where we will find out what God put in us. Its the only way that we will forge the necessary fortitude to believe in ourselves and truly believe that we were created to become conquerors and that we can conquer anything that we are faced with.

And I want the world to know that my story, my brand is on a mission to impact the world. I want my brand/story to represent Hope, Passion, Perserverance, Possibilities, Greatness and Holiness.

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
So if my best friend was visiting the area, our itinerary would look sort of like this:

-We would go to the Tower club in the city for drinks and dinner
-We would definitely head over to a very nice Cigar lounge for some cigars and catch a football or basketball game
-One day head down to hang out downtown for some sight seeing and check out some women for some flirting
-Figure out which mall we would want to hang out in for a little shopping for some nice suits for an upcoming night out
-We would definitely be going to the gym to work out daily
-See if there are some nice jazz spots in the city to round up our selected woman of dates and go dancing
-Check out some nice lounges for some more drinks and food

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
I would not be where I am today if not for the love and grace of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. He saved my life. He saved me from suicide and he saved me from total self destruction. I also credit my family and close friends for never giving up on me, even when i constantly doubted myself over and over. They always stuck by my side through all of my ups and downs, trials and tribulations and kept me encouraged to keep going despite my failures. God has truly transformed me into a new man and has truly renewed my mind and I have accepted my calling into the Ministry to be an Ambassador for Christ.
