dotsRoland S. Martin Shares Success Tips, Interviews for his show “News One Now” at Essence Festival

Published on July 13, 2014 by Sonya's Spotlight


“I think one of the things that’s critically important, is focus. It’s interesting to me when I talk to folks who are in high school and in college and I ask, ‘What do you want to do?’ and they’ll say, ‘Oh, I’ll do all of it.’ And I explain to them, ‘You have to pick a door to walk into. You can branch out from that, but you have to start somewhere.’  But for a lot people, it’s amazing to me, a lot of them have high grade point averages, but they aren’t focused as to what they want to do, career wise.”

“When you are very clear in terms of what God’s will for you is, it’s having that focus and understanding that no one should be able to throw you off track.”
