From his college days at Tennessee State University where he started his business as a freshman with three packs of hot dogs. Selling them to hungry students, Hot Dog Heaven was founded. Paying his way through college with Hot Dogs gave Derrick the inspiration he needed to begin teaching other people how to run a business. Derricks upbeat, educational and inspiring programs are geared to show people how they y can use their given talents to start their own business, overcome the challenges that they will face along the way and to take advantage of opportunities that come their way.

His most sought after program, The Power of Positive Thinking , helps people change the way they think so that they will see that it’s not what happens to you, it’s how you react to what happens to you.
