Trauma, Grace, and a Young Man's Journey from Foster Care to Yale

No one can go back and make a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending. Growing up on the south side of Chicago, Rodney faced incredible hardships in the foster care system, coping with family drug problems and violence.

But through sheer determination and the support of some key mentors, Rodney was able to reach for new heights as an entrepreneur and a Yale University graduate. A New Day One is Rodney’s story of triumph over adversity, filled with valuable principles and life lessons that are sure to inspire you into action. Whether you’re an inner-city youth or a high-net worth businessman, there’s something to be learned from Rodney’s incredible story.
