Foreword by Dr. Vernard L. Hodges

Bet On Yourself is a book of hope, knowledge, and encouragement for people with limited options.

No matter what you want to achieve in life, you need money. School teaches us almost nothing about money or how to make it. At best, school tells us how to become an employee. But for many people employment means limited options and low pay. And if you lose your one job, you’re in big trouble. There is another way. BET ON YOURSELF: From zero to millions explains: • How to create multiple streams of income • Money 101 • What the stock market is and how it works • How to get started investing in rental properties Dr. Hodges shares his personal life lessons, often funny, but always meaningful, from hanging out with crack dealers as a teenager, to being mistaken for Mike Tyson on the other side of the world in South East Asia. Options were limited for people growing up in Dr. Hodges’ community; most people worked at the local bus factory, went into the military, ended up in jail, or got killed. The first part of this book shows how a poor African American kid failing in high school became a business owner and a respected veterinarian. Dr. Hodges stresses the importance of making friends wherever you go, and more. Getting fired from his first professional job was a blessing. It taught him to bet on himself, and he never looked back. There are important messages in this book about doing the right thing when no one is looking, the importance of role models, and being nice. As Dr. Hodges’ favorite rapper Jay-Z said on Moments of Clarity, The Black Album, 2003: And I can’t help the poor if I’m one of them So I got rich and gave back to me That’s the win, win Read this book. It could change your life.

Take control of your life and learn how to build generational wealth

cover

Why should you read this book? I wrote it to give hope, knowledge, and encouragement to people with limited options. I learned early that school wasn't set up for people like me to succeed. You have to scratch and claw to educate yourself. Refuse to be a victim of your surroundings. Get up every time life knocks you down. Refuse to take no for an answer. Never quit, despite how hard life gets. If you're going to do well in life, bet on yourself, because if you don't, then who will?

Growing up in a rural Georgia trailer park we had very little. Our options were limited. My friends and I all dreamed of becoming superstar athletes or famous rappers. But most of us ultimately went into the military, labored at the local bus factory, went to jail, or got killed. My story is different.

This book is my story of how I bet on myself, and the lessons I learned. How I overcame huge obstacles to live the life. I was a smart kid, but not "school smart." There are other kinds of smart; street smart, hustle smart, survival smart. And then there are the smarts my friends and I used growing up in the rural south to overcome a common perception that we weren't good enough. I was a failing student in high school. Yet I went from picking peaches for $0.70 an hour in the hot Georgia sun, to gaining admittance to one of the most prestigious professional schools in the country, and then on to become an owner of multiple veterinary practices. I became a community leader and philanthropist. I taught myself to become a successful real-estate entrepreneur. I started with one single family home investment and turned it into a multi-million dollar real estate portfolio producing rents of over six figures monthly. In this book I show you how I did it, the method I used, and one you can use, too.

All young people struggle to know what to do with their lives. What's next? What am I gonna be? How do I get there? How do you know? What don't you know? If you're searching for the answers, I'll show you how I did it, and how you can live the life you deserve.

When I was young, I hung out with crack dealers in the bad part of town. I saw what "easy money" did to my community. It was easy come, easy go. That lifestyle never pans out for long. Nothing trumps hard work. Those who took the easy road had the nice clothes and cool cars. They were popular with girls. It looked like they had it all figured out. To a teenage boy it was a glamorous lifestyle, but it didn't take long before I could see that lifestyle was a road to nowhere.

In a small town like mine we thought our community was the world. When we we're young we only saw what was in front of us. Yet I've learned the world is a much bigger place. I didn't know it at the time, but opportunities to live a better life exist, if we have guidance or know how to find them. I always looked for—and found—mentors. I had different mentors at different stages of life. I remain grateful to them for their support, protection, and encouragement.
