Jay Vinson Exclusive Interview

“The most important question anyone can ask themselves is ‘what is my purpose?’,” said Vinson. “Because that question can lead us out of suffering and into a lifetime of discovering what God has planned for us. More often than not, that path starts with adversity and pain. This has never been more-clear than right now, with sickness and death all around us. But God always has a purpose for our pain. And life’s adversity has a way of leading us toward a higher goal.”

Jay Vinson is an Author, Certified Transformational Youth Life Coach for men, empowerment speaker, faith based leader, and business owner from Montgomery, Alabama. After the back to back loss of his uncle and grandmother in the spring of  2012, Jay dove into self-discovery and healing practices by reigniting his passion by working in the sports production industry and coaching the youth. Jay uses his gifts to continue to inspire and empower the youth as well as young men through social media and in the classroom. Jay currently resides in the metro Atlanta, Georgia area where he is an educator and is in the process of implementing his coaching program within the local schools.

He is the author of Pain to Purpose and his latest book Stepping Into Greatness From Pain to Purpose & Promise. Today we speak to him about his latest written book and how his business has been prospering during this global pandemic.

Tell us about your new book Stepping Into Greatness

“Stepping Into Greatness: From Pain to Purpose & Promise” blends from my personal and moving life story into a series of profound meditations that help guide readers to discover God’s purpose for their lives. Warm, friendly and conversational, this book is for everyone from all walks of life as this is a daily devotional filled with powerful affirmations after each devotion. This book  is intended for a wide audience: teenagers and adults, the faithful, and those who are still questioning.

Greatness doesn’t happen overnight, but it requires a lot of perseverance, sacrifice, being able to get through the pain then figuring out what your God given purpose may be on this earth. But, I discovered so many times people let the  weight of the world, their hectic schedule, the demands on their jobs, their life, overwhelm them. Along the way, they get stuck in a routine. It might even be a comfortable routine. But deep down, inside their soul, they know they were meant for more  and were made for more! Stepping Into Greatness is available everywhere books are sold.

Tell us about your experience in 2020 and how the pandemic affected you?

It has been disastrous, but at the same time I have grown so much personally and business wise. There have been inspirational moments and moments of sadness. Some days I wake up ready to attack each day on purpose, and some days I wish I could talk to my relatives one more time whom I lost due to COVID and a few years ago.  .

At the same time I felt compelled to launch my business before the pandemic in 2020. I had no idea that our country would be hit by a pandemic that we are still faced with today of COVID19. So, I had to pivot and change my entire plans with my entire business. With me being a more hands on type of person, I had to learn how to pivot part of my business to the online platform. But, the good part is that I had a few business owners who coached me through the process with how to start part of my business online.

Which project are you working on nowadays as you are a leader,author and youth transformational life coach?

I am currently working on launching my youth coaching academy for boys within the local school system here in the metro Atlanta area and abroad As being a full time educator I am seeing first hand that a lot of students are losing hope, stressed out, don’t know what their purpose is for life, and are not engaging in school due to the pandemic that our nation is currently faced with.

The grade level I plan on having my coaching academy for is middle school and high school. Although, we are still in the middle of a pandemic and most parents may not feel comfortable with their child being in school face to face, I have another option for them. I plan on hosting one-on-one coaching sessions for those individuals virtually through the zoom platform. In order for our young men to see greatness they have to know what it takes to step into greatness. So that’s why I shifted my coaching plans for 2021 from health and wellness to coaching our young men.

Also, on February 3rd my ministry Jay Vinson Ministries Inc. will be launching our new Broadcast Television Show worldwide entitled Stepping Into Greatness with Jay Vinson. It will be an inspirational television show which will feature several guests frequently as well as biblical teaching messages that will ignite your faith in God. It will be aired every Wednesday at 9am EST Live on Roku TV by Preach The Word Network TV.

What are your goals and ambitions for 2021?

My goals and ambitions for 2021 is to become the best youth transformational coach with our young men locally and globally by giving them the tools they need to get unlocked and become great at everything they want to do in life.

 Even with my broadcast television show I want to continue to utilize my platform but in a more global way to touch those individuals who may think about giving up on life due to the pandemic or personal things that may be battling alone.

How do you see the future of American Youth in upcoming years?

I see the future of American Youth in upcoming years prospering and taking our nation by storm, because a lot of american youth have more resources nowadays than I did when I was growing up. I am seeing more american youth at the age of 11 who are entrepreneurs/business owners, so the american youth is definitely trending in the right direction.

But, for those american youth who just don’t know what their long term purpose may be, I would say they need to first start with what exactly they love to do. After they figure that out then they will need to connect with individuals who have been where they are trying to go in life.

What is the most important moment for any Young Person in their life?

I would say just be true to who you are, and live out your true purpose on this earth every single day. Also, do not get caught up into comparing your life based on someone else with how they may live.  Another key element that every young person must learn is to enjoy their youth to the fullest every single day, because when they get older it will be some days that they may wish they were young again.

Also, I would say to any young person strategize and plan ahead with what you want to do in life. While you are doing that, continue to stay in school and graduate high school, and then continue living out your true purpose. Even if you want to be the first in your family by attending college and graduating from a four year university I highly recommend that you do that. But, whatever you want to do in life you can do it just continue to stay focused on your calling and purpose in life every single day.

How social media helped you gain popularity?

Social media has really played a huge factor in me gaining popularity during COVID. I’m usually more of a hands on person, but ever since COVID hit our nation in 2020 I began to use social media more than I ever had in the past. That’s when I began to connect with people not just locally where I reside and my hometown, but worldwide. I even connected with quite a bit of individuals through instagram who resides in Africa, Nigeria and the Bahamas. We have really built a solid friendship and have stayed in contact since the pandemic started.

Even with me being a business owner, youth life coach, author, empowerment speaker, and faith based leader I have really grown my tribe nationally. I would’ve never imagined that would have transpired years ago when I first began to use social media. I remember that God had given me a vision to start an Instagram podcast back during the spring when COVID had shifted my job to work remotely from home. But, I had no idea how I was going to do it until I called my best friend and told him about the vision  then we began to brainstorm together about ways of being creative. Until, we both agreed to  just talk about real life issues, spirituality, and current events as I was the host and he was the Co Host. Little  did I know just by hosting that podcast it would touch plenty of viewers’ lives who tuned in weekly. That’s when I began to fall in love and became more comfortable going live through the social media platforms.  It opened doors for me that I never thought were possible, and that’s when I began to connect with more influential people within my industry and niche. So, using social media is definitely a powerful tool to grow your business.

HAKKI’S: A CHAMPION OF GOLD HEART

Published

on

2020 has been one of the toughest years. From pandemics to all time unemployment highs, there is no doubt that this year will have its downturns forever edged in history. For most, this year has meant survival for friends and family. Yet, it seems that a simple pizza chef is taking things further, reaching beyond his own circle of people to help strangers in dire need.

Hakki Akdeniz, owner of Champion Pizza, is one of the hidden gens who has been helping feed the homeless during a year where they were hit the hardest. From hurricane to pandemic, https://www.instagram.com/p/CHudcMtFioW/?igshid=1d18mt8t7oe2a nothing seems to stop this man from being charitable to his greatest capabilities. Of his impressive charitable acts including delivering food to the homeless via food trucks during a recent charity event in New York City. That is just one event of many more events which he has already done and continues to do. Hakki Akdeniz recently began a new company, Hakki’s Pizza, which is now selling frozen pizza at supermarkets. 

Hakki Akdeniz does not limit himself to giving out food to the homeless. He also gives out money and clothes, some of which as seen on social media even tend to be his own clothes. https://www.instagram.com/p/CJPQ0zxFkt0/?igshid=kfh8296lhjyy

I asked Hakki what his inspiration was for giving out so much, especially during times of scarcity where giving is the hardest thing. He said “You know, I really just want to give back. I once was homeless too, and I know what it’s like to be there. That’s why I feel the need to help those in need and spread love and kindness to everyone regardless of who they are. My goal is to inspire others to do the same. I believe that if we can all work together more, then anything will be possible. Just look at me, no one would’ve thought back when I was homeless that I would’ve created such a large brand. This is why we need to give back. We need to give everyone an equal chance to chase opportunities which they were never able to get because of their situation.”

I asked Hakki Akdeniz how he was able to spend so much on charitable deeds, assuming he must make a lot of money. I also asked how he expects the average person to do such charitable deeds if they don’t earn such large amounts of money. Hakki Akdeniz answered “I really don’t have as much money as people think. But, the one thing I believe in most is the cycle of life. When I give this money to the homeless, good things always come back. But I don’t do it for good things, I do it to genuinely help them. I am saying this because I want to encourage more people to do more to help. Anything can be done, it doesn’t have to be money. It can be as simple as giving advice to the homeless or some other simple actions. Charity does not always have to be glamorous, as it can be as simple as spreading kind words to the homeless and showing them the same respect you would show anyone else.”

A champion of gold heart, Hakki Akdeniz uses pizza and compassion to help the homeless and serves as an inspiration to others to do the same. To keep up with Hakki, you can follow him in Instagram @hakkiakdenizz
