Breaking barriers and forging his own path
Growing up between Los Angeles, California and Fort Smith, Arkansas, Rashad had a storied childhood where he learned to adapt in often volatile conditions to survive and thrive. Eventually he set off to the US Air Force Academy to learn to compete and lead at the highest levels of excellence while enduring significant challenges in the process.
Since separating from the US Air Force as a captain, Rashad has spent years practicing what he's learned along the way. The combined lessons - from family, friends, teachers, the Air Force Academy and Air Force service, various adversities, bad decisions, failed projects, lost money, successful and failed relationships, investments in conferences, coaching, and seminars, therapy, and continuous introspection and reflection from every aspect of his upbringing and training - gifted him a unique perspective on winning, as well as an acute drive to persevere through challenges.
