You’ve probably found your way to the About Page because you wanted to know more about Sambouie, its services, knowledge base, and how did I earn the nickname “The General”. Ok. That is a respectable inquiry. It is a very intriguing narrative; let me show you my side of the story. I could only provide my side of the story in the context of limited space because I can’t tell all the intricate details on one page. Well I did not earn the name “The General” overnight and made a sudden about face as a black male. If you want to know both side of the story, you should definitely put your email in the box below:
Through my story from personal experience I know you will learn some skills that can be applicable to your life. We are together in your journey to succeed in the life. I believe all the biographers start their particular story with their birth information. I don’t think I should deter from the tradition. I was born February 8, 1994 in New Orleans, La at the Oschner’s women hospital. I was born in Louisiana, raised in Louisiana, and now lives in Fayetteville, Arkansas. I can see the air is fresher here in Fayetteville. It is not a hot place, I could tell you that. Since I let you in on that tidbit of information, you’re welcome to attend my next “turn up” at my birthday party. (Not that I have many) but it is the thought that count, right.
I began my journey in New Sarpy, LA. Where I made a couple moves between Hammond, LA, and New Sarpy, La throughout my K-12 adventure. (Google it) I finished High school at (Destrehan) where I was the starting Cornerback#27, my senior year. Then after that I began attending Grambling State University where I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Electronics Engineering. I graduated with a B average. I wasn’t able to graduate with honors though. Because I rain into a lets just say difficult person. So between me and you I learned “backstage” most of everything I know now. I will tell you more on that in a minute. “Backstage” is what I like to call what the customer or student can’t see. I had experiences that the ordinary college student isn’t exposed to, because it is not a planned experience that administrators would promote on the agenda.
Moving forward, while in High school I entered the big school. Which is always bigger compared to your last. I was a mere 125 pounds and 5'4".I was told I will never be able to start Varsity football. This formed the principle #1 in “The Player Mentality”. I decided to focus on things others was not focused on. When I graduated I was 160 pounds and 5'6". I gain 35 pounds of muscle. To be able to be the starter, I worked out extra hours, and made sure I stuck to the program. I did because I needed to prove to myself I can compete. After high school I never had the desire to play for college. I didn’t want risk injury, Especially if my ultimate objective was never to make it to the NFL.
I spent my High School interim by enmeshing my self in the arts of disc jockeying. My partner you wouldn’t believe it was my dad. I enter the entertainment business from out of nowhere. My dad was playing some square looking box. He insisted for me to try, and then they led to my first gig. It was from a family member but, hey, it was a start. I discussed a game plan with my dad. That change how I do business and my life forever. I can’t discuss business (all) my success secrets here, because limited space. You can get the A, B, C’s through my narrative; then later I will reveal to you the X,Y,Z’s. So I became popular as a disc jockey, in St. Charles which I earn the nickname “DJA-Rock”. Which landed me some gigs at the double tree hotel New Orleans for some people from New York City, and at the Oakwood Mall, in New Orleans, LA. I will teach you some tricks to be successful in any field, or hobby. After, school I was preparing to go to the Air Force. I guess I wanted to fly a B-52,who knows? I think it was my way to make something out of myself. Then my life changed a family member told me about a Historically Black Institution. I made a complete about face that night and create an application for Grambling State University, immediately.
My prior experience prepared me for what was going to go down later. I had campaign to become the Freshman Class President of my University. Once she reveal the votes. I had become the Freshman Class President Elect. If you never waited on election results, I tell you, your life flashes before you, but your not about to die at least that’s what the rational mind would say. As an undergraduate student, I challenged myself to become an innovative leader. I decided to run for Freshman Class President. I had to organize a campaign team, motivate and keep them goal-oriented. After concerted efforts, I was elected for the Freshman Class President position. As I began my term as Freshman Class President challenges were mounting. I had to overcome group-think tendencies, peer pressure, and divided leadership in a short period of time. I had to sink or swim. I had to become engaged to be an effective class president for my university.
In order for the class to perceive their peer as someone to respect and listen to I had to become a rigorous reader about business management to improve my business character personal branding. I analyzed myself and defined my core values and principles and knew what organizations I would align my leadership principle compass in the direction of in the future. I declared with clarity what type of leader I did not want to become and I became proactive in finding out what motivated certain individuals and caused them to excel. I began to streamline overlapping cabinet member jobs, and redundant communication channels. I learned to become detailed-oriented and to be able to identify problems at their inceptions and eradicate the problem before it leads to chaos. Believe me when I tell you “Chaos leads to more Chaos”. More about that later. I was re-elected by 94.36% of the class voting participants by Sophomore year. I oversaw the strategic implementation of modern technologies such as conference calls, group chats, and social media marketing, were implemented strategically. I was able to succeed in event planning results better than my Freshman Class President year by evaluating the effectiveness of implemented modern technology results. My strategies caused a direct attendance increase for the designed etiquette and mentorship programs; which taught students the importance of appearance and professionalism. I made it a priority of my plan to promote productivity in students’ motivational goals and made it a standard to myself to facilitate, and lead people to increase campus productivity.
What does this have to do with Sambouie and its services? Stay the course and continue reading because it is important you know the experiences that shape me. We need to understand that because everybody can’t hang. This secret information is not for everyone, and I know from personal experience everyone can’t handle these secrets. I needed to warn you of that from the start. So I decided to start my own business this time not in the disc jockey business but more of consulting. When I was a college student. I didn’t keep a 9-5p.m. That didn’t mean I went out and followed women around, got drunk, and partied my leisure away. I didn’t have wads of money but I had plenty time. I used that time to devour book after book subject after subject about, math and science, finance, dating, web design, fitness, and much more. My dad told me years ago sometimes the knowledge you got, “it is your duty to share it”.
When I was toiling and doing all of the reading, struggle to grapple with topics. I said to myself maybe I am put here to help sort this stuff out and make it easier for people to understand difficult topics. I start see why the experts keep people in the blind like you and I for a long time. I had the luxury to spend time reading tons of books. The time most people don’t have to invest in these subjects. I have compiled my knowledge in easy to read, easy to grapple knowledge. These secrets I will reveal to you will change your out look forever. Altering any fear of approaching women or men, jobs, and making friends, men and/or women, and negotiating a pay increase from my negotiation experience. I learn plenty negotiation from disc jockeying, selling, and dealing with my colleges administration. I had many negotiations with the administration of my university although this one was the last one. Literally I had a professor write down on a piece of paper and hand it to me that he personally did not like me. I will put that on my mother. If you think I’m bluffing I will send you an email of the document, upon request. This caused him to give me a grade based on his biased of me which of course you knew was in his best interest not mine. I learned a lot negotiating over that. We were definitely able to resolve a reasonable solution and I was able to graduate with my class. This an similar other situations got me on a first name bases with most of the administration of the institution. This got me “backstage” to see how the top people really live their life. If I reveal this one secret to you. It will change your life forever.
During my college summers I worked as a sales representative. I had to get out of my comfort zone by doing door to doors sells to sort out and organize these secrets for you. I was voted by my Freshman class as the “Most Popular Freshman” in which I received an award for it. I hosted events as an undergraduate and interviews, over 100’s of students about their relationship concerns, financial, and helped with emotional consulting. This experience helped me to hit on proven methods to succeed and make people smile. When dorm-walking, which is going from door to door, trying to get votes, I learn a lot of skills with dealing with people. I wouldn’t dare advice someone to go through all the mistakes I went through to become successful in my own right, because we are built to be great. I do not want you to waste time if I can provide the advice to you which will save you time. The consultation I provide will set you free from unnecessary worry.
Sambouie isn’t about wasting time. No way. This is a movement against the “just chilling” crowd. We make moves. We don’t watch it happen. “TV is a playground for the rich, and all (just chillers) do is watch it happen.” I am an avid believer in teamwork. Sambouie is about developing a team of likeminded people, who believe in their hearts that we are upright, and productive members of society. We will not be the “just chillers” we are the producers, goal-setters, and “warriors. People come up to me talking about “I hear your are good at the stock market”. They want me to (waste time) just telling all of my secrets. Some people can’t handle my tell it like it is mentality. I like to spend my limited “time” with “warriors” I’ve learn a lot of subjects and its fun for everyone involved. I started this because I wanted to reach out too the “warriors”. So, if my “warrior” mentality seems like something you like to hear more about. You are willing to hear the truth that “just chillers” in your life will be shocked if you knew about. Enter your email below in the box below to become a level one “warrior”. I’ve included my exclusive article worth$11.97 “The Player Mentality” and it’s for free. Plus I will tell you the business secret that landed me instant popularity.
I will reveal to you plenty secrets that won’t cost you a dime! These helped me to overcome my obstacles. Of course, I have other material in stock for you to invest in. As of right now; peak inside via email. Enter your email in the box, so you won’t miss out in kick rocks with the “just chillers
Helen Ayim, born in Cameroon, Africa and moved to the United States at the age of nine. From the moment, she knew she was moving to a completely different country, she was terrified. Helen had no idea what it was going to be like, but she was ready for a new life. She was about to leave the only place She had ever known to be home to somewhere She never pictured herself living. You might be thinking at age nine how could she be ready for a new life. Helen never felt like she belonged in Africa. She says “Don’t get me wrong Africa is a beautiful place to live with a lot to do, but I felt as if I was destined for something bigger and I knew Africa wasn’t going to get me there”. So, she moved to the United States with her father. The trip was amazing and till this day she can still remember things vividly. On the way to America her and her father made a stop at this beautiful resort in Nigeria; where her dad had a few friends there so we spent about a week there, which was great because she had never really been out of Cameroon. But back to Nigeria, everyone was friendly; everywhere she went people said hello to her, ask what her name was and would tell her she was just as precious as a button and all she could do was smile so hard that her cheeks felt like rocks. Helen ate so much Nigerian food and drunk a lot of orange Fanta; how tasty, which by the way is her favorite drink. So after spending a week there they decided it was time to continue on their journey and off they went. Take note that she is only nine years old and has never been in anything other than a car. So she saw an air plane and started asking so many questions. Is that the only way we can go into the United States? How far up will it be in the air? Will she be the only kid? As she was asking all these questions her heart felt as if it was hanging out of my chest. After everything was settled they walked at a fast pace to the gate of where the air plane was. It took her father roughly forty-three minutes to get her in because she was so terrified that she felt as if she had used it on myself. Her father managed to get her on the plane which was extremely better than she had expected. The people were very friendly and they fed her which was also great but she wouldn’t say the food was good. So, after switching planes after planes she was exhausted and was ready for the day to be over. They got on their last plane that landed in Dallas and her dads’ best friend came and picked them up. She had never seen a place as beautiful as Dallas but was too tired to enjoy the scenery. It was beautiful with the sun shining bright which made her feel warm inside. She slept from the moment they left till they arrived Ruston, Louisiana.
It was so hard to adjust to the new life. Everything smelled really bad and looked weird. After three days of being in Ruston, it was time she got registered for school. We aren’t going to bore you with how long that process took and how much she hated it but she did like going shopping for school uniforms only to see how ugly they were. So the first week of school came and boy was she excited and yet nervous because she was going to be the new kid with no friends and didn’t know a lick of English! Did we forget to mention at that point in life she couldn’t speak English at all. The first day of school she was asked if she was a girl or a boy. we believe we also forgot to mention she had no hair at that age. Why you might ask. See the schools in Africa doesn’t allow them to grow their hair long and if they chose to do so it has to be kept braided. Stupid right? Anyways as the day went on and classes went by she was ready to go home and never come back. A whole week of school went by and she felt unwanted which is a scary feeling which we’re sure everyone has experienced at some point in life. After a month of school a teacher name Alisa Antley became fond of her and until this day she is still a part of her life. She took care of Helen as if she was her own and loved her for who she was and is. They had a special bond.
People like her only come once in a blue moon and Helen is grateful that the Lord sent her, her way because she is part of the reason why she is the way she is. Helen says “I love her so much and there’s nothing I can do to show how grateful I am and will always be for what she did for me”. Moving on, Helen hated the sixth grade. She hates to use the word “hate” but there’s no other word that could describe the school she said. She didn’t hate the people at the school, She hated how she was treated by some. Throughout sixth grade She was always depressed when she got home. She was made fun of everyday for the whole school year. One day she got so mad that she called someone a “bitch”. She had no idea what it meant, but saw others doing it and decided to do it. That moment didn’t last long because the guy went and reported her to the principle and next thing she knew she was getting called to the principal’s office. She said nothing to them until her dad had arrived. The principal told her she needed to look at him in his eyes while he spoke to her, but she didn’t because in her culture it’s a sign of disrespect, but she didn’t know in America it shows respect. So as her dad tries to explain everything to them, she too was trying to understand what was going on, but they were speaking to fast for her. She ended up getting detention which isn’t bad at all because she spent it alone doing homework. But from that day on she had learned her lesson. Never let anyone determine your feelings. Don’t change to fit in or to please others. The only person you should please is yourself.
So after a long year of sixth grade she ended up failing sixth grade and had to stay there another year. The funny thing was she wasn’t upset because she knew she would have Mrs. Antley by her side which made life easier. During my second year of sixth grade she actually had two close friends name Halie Chandler and Morgan Hitt and they were so nice. She would go to their house, hang out with them, go swimming, and just have fun and boy it felt good to have friends. Throughout the second year of sixth grade she was always made fun off and she never quite understood why some humans where so evil and would feel pleased after making another feel bad. But that didn’t change anything because she was now use to it. Helen enjoyed every moment of her second year of sixth grade because she had friends. Spending another year with Mrs. Antley was amazing. Every break she got; she spent it with her. During lunch time she would sometimes go to her classroom sit on her lap and just spend time with her. She deserves the world for the kind of heart she has. Helen finally passed the sixth grade and on to the seventh grade she went. She had prayed it would be different, but it wasn’t because the same people in the sixth grade where also in the seventh grade. You would think she would know that, but she didn’t. Helen tried out for the soccer team and made it so her dad took her out to eat. She always felt better after eating. Joining the soccer team was one of the best decisions she ever made because she made friends and felt wanted. People would always tell her dad; “your daughter is really good at soccer and has the furthest throw-ins we’ve ever seen”. Helen has never really been the typed to brag but she kept playing soccer from seventh grade. She also tried out for the track team her eighth grade year and also made the team. Didn’t really have friends there, but that was ok because not everywhere you go you’ll have friends, but she enjoyed being on the track team.
“High school here I come”! Helen says. She thought to herself High School was going to be the best years of her life and just couldn’t wait. she told herself she is not going to let others determine how she feels about anything. She is not going to let anything or what anyone says to determine how she feels. And till this day she lives by that. Freshman year through senior year was amazing. Helen played soccer for all four years. She was on the varsity team for four years and like she mentioned they were the best four years of her life and if she had to change anything about it she wouldn’t change a thing even on her bad days because even those bad days made her stronger and a better person. She made friends and enemies. Well she wouldn’t really consider them enemies just that they didn’t like her for whatever reason, but she didn’t care because spending the time to hate someone is a waste of time; forgive but don’t forget because it’s moments like those that teach life lessons that you need to learn from so you know not to make them again. Throughout her soccer years in High School she received many awards such as (Ruston High School Lady Bearcat Soccer “Top New Player” 2009-2010, “Defensive MVP” 2011, “All Northeast Region 2nd Team” 2011, “All District 1st Team” 2011, “1st Team All-Northeast” 2011-2012, “1st All-District” 2012, “Overall MVP” 2012, “1st Team All-District” 2012-2013, and “Overall MVP” 2013). High School was great, it was good to be known for something so great. She made the best of all four years and not a thing would be changed if she had to relive it. This girl and her became best friends and they did just about everything together until their senior year in college, but that’s a story for another day.
Helen graduate from High School and decided to attend Grambling State University. She honestly never thought about attending Grambling but decided to take that risk. It was a good risk because she wouldn’t be far from home. We know what you’re thinking why in the world would she want to attend a university so close to home. Because her dad was a professor at Grambling and was basically getting paid to attend college. She received a major scholarship from Grambling to play for the women soccer team. She signed the papers and on she went. Freshman year she received the “Freshman of the Year” award which felt Amazing she says. The team had potential, but they rarely won any games to qualify them to the next level. Soccer made college worth it. She met some great people. She learned a lot from her professors and some became close like family because they didn’t only care about her education, but they cared about her. She feel as if her four years of college have been the hardest and longest four years of her life. On April 26th, 2017 She received the “Most Valuable Player” Award. “This made all the hard work worth it” Helen says. She graduated May 12, 2017 with a Computer Information Systems Bachelor’s Degree with a minor in Accounting.
