Can you imagine—what life would be like without inventors? Can you imagine—if there was never an Imhotep, George Washington Carver or Thomas Edison? No grocery stores or supermarkets, no packaged products from far away places like Asian and Africa. Can you imagine—every American household, having to grow their own crops and hunt for their own meat? It might not be conceivable to those who take for granted, certain liberties and comforts like—coming down an escalator in the mall, talking on an iPhone or even driving a luxury sports car, which by the way—were all made possible by inventors that dedicated their lives to inventing unique or novel devices and methods—tangible and intangible things, which makes our daily lives easier and more effective to manage.
And as we move forward into the foreseeable future, today’s guest—Mr. Leroy Crumbley, is another inventor who has created a solution to a common problem, faced by many—his shirt’s cuffed sleeves wouldn’t stay in place, so—he created fashion cuffs to hold them in place, and consequently—made life better and easier for people who prefer to wear their long sleeves in cuffs. I was blessed with the opportunity to converse with Mr. Crumbley, and this is what he had to say about—growing up in Liberty City, his most memorable life moment, and the meaning of Fasheik.

1. Wake up earlier: If you’re not a morning person, waking up earlier can totally be a hard task, but just think about how much more productive you can be if you a) allocate your time more effectively and b) value your own time in order to execute better time management.
2. Exercise (typically in the morning): Much like waking up earlier, if you’re not a very active person then the very thought of exercising can be exhausting. However, I can assure you, exercising before getting your day started gives you more energy. Studies have proven that stimulating your mind and body physically before beginning your day gets your adrenaline pumping; helping to give you the kind of motivation you need to stay energized through-out the day.
