Rufus L. Sims, Founder of PUSH DETROIT, LLC.
GOING FROM GOOD TO GREAT
Rufus was raised by his mother in Pontiac, MI about thirty minutes outside of Detroit. As a child, he saw the city of Detroit from the outside looking in. It went from good to bad and he felt there was nothing he could do about it. Now, he lives in Detroit with his family and has established PUSH DETROIT, LLC to do exactly what he thought he could not: help the Detroit community. PUSH’s goals are to stabilize families, rekindle safe and comely neighborhoods, and to provide a better future for the next generation. He received his undergraduate degree from Oakland University and is currently studying for his Masters of Arts in Organizational Leadership with a concentration in Not-For-Profit Business Regent University.
MOTIVATION FROM LIONEL
Coming from a single parent home it was easy for Lionel to come up with excuses for why he could not be successful. However, excuses never got anyone far, so he put the excuses aside and took ownership of his destiny. A motivational speech from Lionel will prepare you to do the same.
PUSH YOURSELF, PUSH YOUR CITY
Seeing the effects of an busted economy, corrupt government, and neighborhood crime, Lionel and PUSH DETROIT, LLC want to focus on ‘DEALING HOPE’ to the community through out-reach events and The PUSH Network using in-reach initiatives to gathers and challenge leaders to make a difference.
CHANGE THE WORLD THROUGH EFFECTIVE LEADERSHIP
Lionel feels that we are not truly complete until we discover the reason why we were put on this earth. For him, the reason was to motivate and help others reach their full potential in their community. Embodying this purpose, he has been named the ‘Leader Breeder’ by his peers he is passionate about training others to become leaders with integrity and humility.
EVERYDAY IS ANOTHER OPPORTUNITY
In addition to PUSH, Lionel also has a photography and graphic design business which has serviced people from Michigan to Virginia for things such as church anniversaries, weddings, senior photos, and more. Lionel is multi-talented, multifaceted, and completely consumed in his purpose
