Kenneth Brown

Game Changer, International Business Coach, Author and Entrepreneur, and Inspirational Speaker Everyone has a story to tell. Few, however, prove to be as profound and inspirational as that of Mr. Kenneth Brown. He had every excuse to choose a life of failure. At the age of 13 and 14, Ken’s parents brought their first child into the world; by 17 and 18, they were mother and father to five children. In spite of poverty and a trail of 10 evictions, Ken’s parents still emphasized the importance of education and a strong work ethic. After starting his journey in less than ideal circumstances, this Chicago native worked his way through Southern Illinois University as a busboy and waiter. Once he graduated, he maintained his focus as well as his hunger for excellence, which has paid off in monumental personal and professional opportunities. As one of the youngest African-American owner/operators of a McDonald’s franchise, Ken’s light has shone brightly in the arena of entrepreneurial accomplishment. Ken’s secret sauce to success is, “Never take lessons from a coach who never played the game”. He has a proven track record that he has successfully played the game and won.
