What does a man look like? June is “The Month of the Man” and it’s my pleasure to welcome John A. McDonald II to Enough Factor Podcast. Described as a tie-loathing adventurer, philanthropist & entrepreneur who turns ideas into reality, it’s hard to believe that he spent so much of his life not knowing who he was. He resented his mom and was angry with his dad for it. To this day, he doesn't know who his father is. His story sadly is one that is shared by so many Men of Color in this country.
Rather than applying a stereotypical expectation on John of the "black boy without a father", I wanted you to hear his story and the Truth of his identify that found him when he was at his lowest point.
In our candid conversation, John talks about:
- The powerlessness of growing up without a father and how young men try to mask it.
- The origins of anger and rage
- A very real encounter with Divinity
- Tapping into a truth that is bigger than your current circumstance
…and much more.
This man’s life is nothing short of a miracle.
If you are feeling scared, angry, triggered by the events going on in the world, this episode is a reminder that you on a collision course with a Purpose bigger than you can imagine.
