EP.027 – Discovering Your Purpose Through Service with Nehemiah Davis

This week I caught up with my friend and mentor, Nehemiah Davis. Nehemiah is a serial entrepreneur, author, and philanthropist from Philadelphia, PA.

In this episode, Nehemiah and I discuss the true power of being a servant. Giving is a road to greatness. In the words of Martin Luther King, Jr. “Everyone can be great because anyone can serve.” Nehemiah clearly displays this through his relationships as a business owner and through his work with the Nehemiah Davis Foundation.

So listen in as we share how each of us can discover true purpose by serving others.

" If you are going to be selfish and not share your gift with the world, you never know what you possibly could have created for yourself as well as others."

Nehemiah Davis

Questions I asked:

  • You were raised by your mom because your dad was incarcerated when you were young. You went through a lot of downs as you were growing up. Tell us about your journey.

  • How does someone go about building relationships with people who recognize your value and are willing to invest and support you?  

  • So many people struggle deeply with rejection and the fear of rejection. Being in a field of creativity, you’ve experienced rejection because not everyone can understand your vision.
