Hello! I'm Rodney and welcome to my page!

In 2018, I published a book called "Get Off The Cycle and Run!", which has been well-received all over the country!

If you like to be inspired by ideas such as the ones found in books like, "The 7 Habits of Effective People", "How to Win Friends and Influence People", "Who Moved My Cheese," and "Outliers" ...

...then you will LOVE to read the national best-seller: "Get Off The Cycle and Run!"

Join the many other organizations, schools and churches who are purchasing copies for their people who are depending on them for growth, development and positive decision-making!


The video below (scroll down) is a fun, quick and insightful look into my personality! Feel free to check it out!

I really appreciate this particular video because it was gifted to me by my neighbor back when I was wrapping up a stint at holding elected office here in Baltimore, MD. Although I'm no longer holding any seat, it still makes me humbly proud to see the journey that brought me here to you today encapsulated in this video!

I hope a small part of it brings a warm smile to your heart (click on it)!

I had the opportunity to hear Mr. Burris speak and found his speaking style truly engaging. Mr. Burris was able to captivate his audience and relay his motivational message in a manner that makes one consider the paths, or cycles, they may have taken in the past that lead to bad decisions and poor choices (i.e. negative thinking patterns, troubled relationships). I look forward to reading the book in it's entirety and sharing the insight I obtained during the motivati

Hi Rodney! Why didn’t you tell us you are an author! [...She] bought your book last week, and since she is knocking out a required book for [our company], I stole her copy. I got about a 100 pages read this weekend, and will finish it in the next few days. For what it’s worth - I read very slowly, so that’s a huge testament to a good book! I love your simplistic approach to change! I’m looking forward to finishing it and discussing with you over our next cup of coffee.
