Everette Taylor has a lot to smile about these days. But that wasn’t always the case.
When Everette Taylor was a kid, he would sit on the floor to watch TV, just in case stray bullets came through the walls. Having food to eat at night was a luxury. At age seven, he saw a guy get murdered right in front of him. Sadly, this was all normal.

His mom knew something was up when Everette started showing up with fresh clothes and kicks—and forced him to get a real job. So he did. In marketing. It would change the entire trajectory of his life. But not before surviving a period of homelessness, beginning at age 17.
