JeVon McCormick shouldn’t have succeeded.
He was born the mixed-race son of a drug-dealing pimp and an orphaned, single mother on welfare.
Growing up in the slums of Dayton, Ohio, he endured terrible abuse and racism. He has only a GED and no college degree.
But succeed he did.
Starting by scrubbing toilets, JeVon hustled and worked his way into better opportunities.
Currently, JeVon is the President and CEO of Scribe Media. He lives in Austin, Texas, with his wife, Megan, and their four children; Ava, Jaxon, Elle and Jace.

Foreword by David Goggins.
When did our leaders become followers? It happened when they realized the old corporate playbook no longer applies. Today, they have no idea where to look for guidance because everyone around them is in the same situation. The detrimental impact of the old playbook has never been more clear.
The problems we face today are unique to this moment. As a result, we are seeing what our leaders are really made of. We see leaders looking for leaders, and that’s not what leadership is supposed to be. Everyone wants to win, and they’re searching for the next play to run. But Modern Leaders don’t need a playbook, because leadership is not a game.
