“No man can lead man; we have to have unity.”
– Bob Marley

Above all else, I truly believe we are in this together. During this time of extenuating challenges, it is unity, inclusion and teamwork that make me feel most inspired and optimistic about the future.

What will make us successful collectively and individually is capitalizing on our unique strengths, diverse backgrounds and inclusive spirit. At Brightmark, we are creating scalable waste solutions that support growth and development. We are focusing on job creation and giving individuals the tools to be successful.  Now more than ever we need to be providing job opportunities, and these jobs need to be in a growing and in-demand regions and industries.  We are providing the training and resources to work in a one-of-a-kind, innovative industry. We are providing hundreds of jobs across the country and soon the world. We are creating not only a new norm, but completely new solutions to leave this world a better place for generations to come. What we are finding is an amazingly talented, diverse group of people from all different walks of life coming together with a common goal: to leave it better than we found it.

We are building something out of nothing and we can’t do it alone. One of my first work experiences was a job I had building houses in Atlanta while I was in school. Our crew was made up of folks from many backgrounds, and we grew to be an amazing team by figuring out how to work together to support our common goal. We would arrive at the job site in the early morning, work side-by-side all day long, and at the end of the day we would sit back and acknowledge the progress achieved. We worked hard as a team and created something out of nothing. And isn’t that what makes life so beautiful?
