Black professor rejects college as a means to wealth

Posted by Admin On September - 21 - 2012

ATLANTA, GA (BlackNews.com) — Business & Economics professor, Devin Robinson, transitioned from the U.S. Army in 1998 after serving 6 years. He entered into corporate America where he spent another 6 years before resigning to save a co-workers job. He worked at WorldCom, a telecommunications company that was involved in the largest corporate scandal in U.S. history, at the time in 2002, brought on by the hands of its founder and CEO Bernard Ebbers. Robinson transitioned into entrepreneurship after resigning from WorldCom, something he dabbled in part-time ever since he was in the military. He admits to struggling with the life of an entrepreneur immediately after venturing into it full-time but within 18 months was able to learn techniques that led to sizeable success.

As a college professor, he teaches business and economics to students interested in endeavoring in business, some even entrepreneurship, but insists on teaching them ownership strategies. When asked of his techniques, he says, “I have worked for government, a corporation, and run my own businesses. My college studies have significantly impacted my success in business but had little influence on what it takes to be a successful entrepreneur and build wealth.”

Robinson released his latest book last month called, Power M.O.V.E.: How to Transition from Employee to Employer. The book is broken down into four parts that addresses specifically how a desirous entrepreneur can transition safely from the life of an employee into the life of an employer . It covers four elements: Mindset, Order, Vacating, and Execution.

He goes on to say, “Transitioning can be very stressful and worrysome, especially from soldier to civilian. This book carefully and methodically explains where hidden opportunities are and how to navigate the unseen pitfalls in the transition. Simple oversights are the inability to forecast income, the response to unsupportive relatives or friends, getting your product on the shelves, floating carrying costs, unreliable workers and selling to strangers who have no clue who you are… We get comfortable with employment and become ignorant to the things that make for successful business endeavors.”

This is Robinson’s 8th self-help book. His was brought to the national stage with his 4th book, How to Become a Successful Beauty Supply Store Owner and went on to develop Beauty Supply Institute. The book can be found at www.PowerMoveBook.com.
