Interview Questions

When I was young success to me meant achievements and acquisitions. I suppose most young people are socialized to believe that a person with the most material possessions or highest community status is the most successful.

However, as I became wiser, I realized that money and possessions are by-products of success and that true success is the ability to have balance in different areas of life such as spiritual, career, health, relationships, financial, humanitarian, emotional etc. Success is also about achieving whatever goals you set for yourself, big or small and being content where you are.

I Am Driven By | Passion for life; and unlocking potential in people so they aspire to do more and become more…

Passion for life; and unlocking potential in people so they aspire to do more and become more…

Being able to develop resilience over time and overcome obstacles in general

I think people who are great at what they do work on their craft continuously and do not rely on talent only. Every day is an opportunity to out-do what they did yesterday and this keeps them at the top.


I’m Consistent and highly disciplined.
I do the following consistently:
1.) Pray
2.) Prepare
3.) Exercise
4.) Read
I am Never ever late for anything….


Being True to who you are and living your teachings, (practice what you preach)

Communication skills (Speaking and writing)

Tumi Frazier visualizes every goal I set, this way it becomes real…in fact, I go to a point of imagining how I would feel when I accomplish it.

Tough times never last but tough people do


It is natural to experience fear and self-doubt when you advance in life especially when you move into untapped territories. I have experienced fear in the past and I believe I will still experience fear as I grow in the profession I am in.

I believe a little bit of fear is necessary to keep me on my toes so that I do not become too egotistical.  The key is not to let fear paralyze me so, I act despite of it and use it to fuel my adrenalin.

Preparation and constant learning; I read extensively as my work requires that, As well as taking good care of myself. I do not abuse myself in any way, don’t drink, don’t smoke and I rest as much as I can.

Tumi Frazier likes tranquil environments, where I can hear myself think. I’m open to learning from everyone I meet regardless of age, experience and stature.

We are stronger in our differences than we are in our similarities and learn more from those who are different from us. I am eclectic, I like all kinds of music, I used to be a DJ in my days. I like comedy, action movies and history documentaries.

Launch my own Talk/ TV Show.

What you make of it; you see life as you are.

Work in such a way that you achieve 80% effectiveness at 20% effort; this is working Smart.

Understand what the meaning of wealth is and develop the character necessary to handle the financial success so it does not destroy you.

I believe in them, give them space to do what they are great at and show gratitude for the value they add.

I do not have role models but Tumi Frazier is inspired by different people who possess different qualities admire and I learn to incorporate those qualities in me and I leave out the rest.

To have lived a life of significance…if I could help just one person along the way, my life would have been worth living.
