The Conversation: Building Bigger Dreams with No Limits 

 

In our first episode with Reggie Calhoun, Jr, we talked about his dream of creating his own college. Reggie shared how he was able to ignore the critics and naysayers who tried to get in his way.  

 

Reggie is back. 

 

This time, his dream has grown even bigger. Reggie’s dream of starting a college prep academy that focused on helping student athletes has now expanded into a college that offers Associates, Bachelors, and certificates programs (online and on campus) along with branches now getting started in Haiti..with other countries to come. 

 

This transformation, from dream to even bigger dream, is what Reggie and Ken talk about in this follow-up episode.

3 Important Things to Remember 

You don’t need permission to build your dream your way Your dream is the permission 

 

Every dream starts in the dark. Dreams aren’t given. They are built as you take action. 

 

To build bigger dreams, find the why Understanding your “why” will helps connect you to other people’s “why” for a even bigger dream 

 

 

 

 

The Homework 

Following your dream can be harder. Growing your dreams can be even harder.  

 

To help you start expanding your mindset to help you start expanding your dreams, ask yourself 3 questions: 

 

If I had $1 million today to fix something, what would I fix first? 

If I were the CEO of a business, what business would it be? 

If I were on a reality TV show, what would I want to be?
