Homeless to An Entrepreneur: An Interview With Sutton Parks

Posted on January 14th, 2014 by Kimanzi

I’ve spent the last three years writing about chasing your dreams and showing you that your dream really is possible. This year my goal is to kick it up a notch, in hopes of seeing many who read this blog completely supported by their online dream by the end of this year.

Another way to do that is to talk to people who are on this journey and winning. I want to bring you interviews with inspiring entrepreneurs who struggled but got back up and are moving forward. Today I’m honored to bring you Sutton Parks.

All I can say is that his story is as inspiring as it gets. It’s an incredible story about struggle and triumph. He was homeless, living in his car, even attempted suicide, life was rough. Watch this interview to hear about it and how he came out of that dark place to victory. At the 31 minute mark, I ask Sutton to play and sing for us, he REALLY rocked it!

I want to thank Sutton again for the interview and playing for us. I had a fabulous time and I hope you enjoyed it. I hope you got a lot from Sutton and do realize that no matter how bad things seem, there’s always light at the end of the tunnel.

We have the power to choose whether or not we let circumstance keep us from something extraordinary, I hope you choose to push forward, Sutton did. Don’t let your doubts and fears or the negative voices of others keep you from those HUGE dreams you want to make your reality.

Was there ever a time you overcame a difficult situation?

P.S. How did you with checking your numbers last week? If you checked them less, be honest in the comments with how much you checked them. I’ll be selecting one winner for a free one hour coaching session.

    Loved the interview with Sutton. It’s great to see him moving along with his dream. Sutton thanks for the reminders – that we do have a choice.
    P.S. I only checked my numbers twice last week Kimanzi!!!

    Great interview. Sutton love your story that would have been a long hard 9 months. It is amazing how gratitude changes everything. I have done better at not checking the numbers:)

      Amen Zech! Way to go on the numbers, feels good doesn’t it?

        Yes very good. Caused me to think outside of the numbers. Led me to change my posting from twice a week to once. This will be better for me and my family in the long run.

          That’s why my word for this year is less. Not being less productive but taking on less to focus more!

            Love it. Doing less has caused me to slow down and think more. My post this morning has gotten more retweets and favorites then any of my posts lately. So less but better content which should be more:)

    Sutton is great! I loved reading his book.

    As for checking my numbers, I probably did it a bit more than normal due to the fact I was in front of the computer more often than normal.
