    Creating Magic with Kylee McGrane🎗

    Creating Magic with Kylee McGrane🎗

    In this episode of the Winners Circle I get a chance to talk to Kylee McGrane, the executive director of A Moment of Magic. Her foundation focuses on providing creative programming to medically vulnerable children globally!
    .
    .
    I’ve known Kylee for 5 years, but I never got the chance to have a deep conversation with her. We hit all topics from her upbringing in Pennsylvania, to her being bullied in highschool, and even the creation of A Moment of Magic. Her childhood revolved around being an exceptional student as well as participating in various sports such as softball, track, and swimming.
    .
    .
    She even talks about how sports benefited her throughout her life. Mentioning how the power of teamwork and going “all in” with your effort were the two biggest takeaways from her athletic career.
    .
    .
    Kylee even talks about transferring from a small highschool to a bigger one and how that impacted her. Not finding her friend group and being bullied was a difficult time for her but thanks to her parents - especially her mom Kylee was able to overcome that and continue her pursuit of magic!
    .
    .
    Who would of thought Kylee wanted to be a writer? Well she did. She ultimately decided to go to the College of Mount Saint Vincent and pursue a degree in English and Communications. Later through her scholarship requirements she found a passion for helping others. The movie “Frozen” was the beginning, next was a club, then it was growing and before she knew it she had a full out business on her hands!
    .
    .
    Kylee even gets deep and talks about the summer she sat her parents down and told them, she was staying in New York to pursue her dream with A Moment of Magic. For those who don’t know Kylee personally be prepared to meet a great person, fully living out her purpose while motivating and inspiring other young leaders throughout the nation!
    .
    .
    Kylee thank you so much for the interview. Like I told you before, you have motivated me to continue grinding to make my business, “Be You Stay True” even better. Your never ending spirit, effort, grit, and hustle are the things that make you a true role model for young women and men alike. I wish you nothing but the best going forward for you and A Moment of Magic! 🌟

    Saving Lives Through Step with Ed Nelson 👣

    Saving Lives Through Step with Ed Nelson 👣

    Ed waits no time getting personal and deep into his life. Ed talked about losing his sister in the 5th grade and how that shaped his decisions moving forward in life such as being there for his mother and wanting better for himself. We even talk about how growing up in the Bronx shaped his mindset and his way of thinking. What lead him into transferring to Monsignor Scanlan Highschool (my alma mater) in his 10th grade year and how he established himself with the upperclassmen boys and girls as “Ed - Lover”.


    We get into how he knew school wasn’t for him and how him getting cheated on led him into creating the first step team in school history called the “PLAYERS”. What was once a way to get girls into liking him, turned into a movement with him in charge of 30 girls and guys. The PLAYERS found instant success within Scanlan and the neighboring community, winning countless talent shows and even receiving opportunities to perform at the legendary Apollo Theater and former president Bill Clinton.


    Ed started to see how the PLAYERS was his calling in life. Being mentored by individuals in the music industry allowed Ed to learn what he wasn’t learning in school, business ethics, contracts, and managerial duties. Him gaining that language only gave him a glimpse of his future success. The PLAYERS was a well known brand in the early 2000’s winning national championships, appearing at America’s Got Talent, and even the NBA All-Star game in 2001. Him and his team even toured alongside the likes of Alicia Keys, Usher, and Beyonce!


    Ed talks about his transitional period from the PLAYERS to making beats and finding a passion for music and how he was successful in that, winning countless beat battle competitions within New York. I get to relive highschool for a bit, because this is how I actually met Ed in 2011. He decided to come back where it all started, home. He talked with the principle and reestablished the PLAYERS through his Spartan and QU step teams. He gets into how he was more than just a step coach. He was and is a mentor, big brother, motivator, advocate, and most importantly a friend.


    To round out the conversation, we get into how he started weight lifting and how rapper 50 Cent indirectly inspired him to keep going. We jump into the conversation of fatherhood and how being a father has been the most fulfilling and important thing to him.


    Thank you Ed for your time, without you knowing it you have inspired me to be more transparent and allow people to always get the real me. You have saved countless lives through the art of step and your work does not go unnoticed! I hope just like you do in everyday life, this podcast inspires, motivates, or even saves a life! Love you brother!

    .
    .
    In this episode, Khalil knew from a young age he was the “odd” kid out. But he didn’t view this as a disadvantage. By highschool Khalil discusses his growth maturity wise while traveling from New Jersey to Staten Island during his junior year of highschool. The late nights, not fitting in, and sacrifices were tough but musical artists such as Mac Miller’s Best Day Ever mixtape and J. Cole’s Friday Night Lights helped him get through the tough times. He talks about transferring to St.Peter’s Highschool in Staten Island, New York and how much love that school gave him taking him in as an outsider. Attending the College of Mount Saint Vincent gave him the opportunity to not be a number but just be Khalil. He had a lot of fun in college trying new things and “finding his wings”. He gives his insight at how his communication major influenced him throughout his four years. From playing college basketball, to starting his own radio station, to even influencing people to wear his own shirts he made. He also dives deep into how 2016 was the year of stunting, 2017 was the year of trial error and how 2018 was the year of revenge! Find out how the letters OFWGKTA influenced his life and how he wants to continuously create his own self-happiness.
