Role Models

We are soliciting your participation in the Tied To Greatness™ Tour. We use the power of positive male role models and fashion to inspire a generation of  inner city high school males to love themselves, improve their image and strive for greatness.
Join us as we go into high schools in major cities across the U.S. and speak to their male student bodies about professionalism, dressing for success and the importance of image. After instructing them on the importance of image, we give the young men a lesson on how to tie a necktie or bowtie. The young men will be able to keep the brand new ties for future special events.

Our first tour during the Spring of 2008 reached over 3,000 young men, and here is where you have a chance to play a vital role. These young men desperately need to see another image. They need to see an image of strong, well-dressed, professional, caring men who are willing to take time to impact their lives. Many of these young men have never owned a tie, and most have not had the one-on-one attention from a positive male role model to show them how to tie it. This will impact not only their image, but their overall esteem therefore empowering them with the confidence and appearance to dress for the destiny that is "tied" to their lives.

We hope that you will consider being a part of this campaign when we come to your city as we impact a generation. Let's leave an indelible mark on the lives and images of the next generation. We are currently finalizing our next tour so please feel free to email me with any further questions. I look forward to seeing you there.

There is no cost for this event.  If men would like to contribute a new tie to the tie inventory; this will assist us in making certain that every young man has a tie at each event.


Please be aware that additonal cities are being added to the tour; so if your city is not listed by joining our mailing list it will allow us to inform you of tour updates, special events, and other important details of Tied To Greatness.  Let's stay in touch! 

***To reinforce the message of image is power; we are asking that ALL men come dressed in a SUIT, DRESS SHIRT and TIE. Thank You-
