its been a journey.
It started without notice
Some things just need to happen, in all of us
The birth of career goals usually flourishes in different ways; for Harris, it was his desire to bring balance to his own life as a teen. Maneuvering, in his brokenness, got him started on the road to what he calls an empowered life. Living with purpose and centered on contributing something back to the world for the life he is living.
Harris endured the struggles of growing up mulatto and bi-racial, then eventually to a broken home leaving behind a formal education path. He used his own applied self-learning, failures, and successes to map out his higher education plan and direction in life.
A further benefit, Harris applied his innate and developing abilities to his daily life’s management while using music as an escape to his life’s struggles.
Harris yearned for a behind-the-scenes career in entertainment & sports management. So he could utilize his natural gift of gab, influencing relationship lifestyle, and managerial skills.
So he began creating opportunities for those around him who were creative, artistic, athletic, and or intellectually gifted. He provided them business management, personal-talent development, promotions and created contacts to procure project bookings at club shows and venues.
Then years later, on December 21, 1999, he founded and formed Empower Management Services and became a Partner and Co-owner of CanILiv Entertainment. An entertainment promotion & marketing company.
Together, his partners and team were successfully facilitating the management and promotion of six clubs simultaneously. Contributing to multiple shows while also achieving their own Arena Concert– titled; “Dance Hall Hip Hop Explosion.” This concert combined 13 Signed, and Independent Reggae & Rap Artists featured. Being the first blended Genre Concert of Reggae and Hip Hop Performers of its kind then and now.
A couple of years after this, the partners of CanILiv Entertainment mutually took on different ventures from promoting and marketing, while staying close friends.
At this time, Harris reflected on his last five years working with novice, and seasoned talent, to identify that there was a real need for overall talent development that was no longer being taken care of by a major label deal.
So coming into early 2005, he decided to only focus on operating within his company and no longer maintain ties working inside another man’s company as an employee. This move was scary, letting go of a guaranteed income to only depend on himself 100% with Empower Management Services, but it paid off for him.
He began shifting his focus from entertainment management to personal and professional talent development, focusing on clients’ lifestyles & relationships and mindset & performance abilities. Instructing clients with skillsets for their lifestyle, love life, professional career, and business affairs. Skillsets that allow mental clarity to flow and produce physical power that enables them to show up and perform in total capacity in their craft and lives more successfully.
In doing this work, he eventually realized that fear was at the root of many challenges and struggles that most face striving to achieve their personal best self daily. Harris identified various consistencies in personality patterns and behavior processes in himself and others that seeded the foundation for his core personal mastery work.
He has been a professional for over three decades, holding several titles from various fields. Harris’s gained and applied experiences have equipped him in developing his signature management, advisory, relation, and coaching (M.A.R.C) strategy instructional services. Having skillsets that reinforce critical thinking, clarifying communication, and unifying relationship techniques. Each is further honed through consistent practices, principles, protocols, and procedure disciplines that create change, disburse potential and affect one’s growth positively.
Harris loves his life’s work! Always staying insightful and further inspired to connect to his inner-portal sort of speak from where he can be of most service to himself, family, friends, & clients in the world. Using this to give back a contribution to this earth while he is here that can also continue giving future generations benefits of direction and understanding long after he is gone.
Harris believes strongly in a cooperative effort to achieve these goals. He has drawn the knowledge obtained from varied research, sources, professionals, and hard-knock life teachers, with his own. To define his contributions back to the world for the life he is living. While refining his ability to instruct others to inspire them to show up for themselves in various aspects of their personal and professional endeavors.
He continues to apply this learning process to his own life and any ear that will hear him. He walks inspired onward to a life journey in equipping and uniting others in empowering themselves to obtain a genuinely complete and used up empowered life.
Harris celebrated Empower Management Services’ 20th anniversary on December 21, 2020, and his 15th year of work independence on March 7, 2020. Harris currently makes a living serving in the personal relationships and professional affairs of executives, their families & teams as a retained and or fee-based development manager, strategist, coach, and instructor.
