We had the good fortune of connecting with Harold Cochran and Carlton Curry II and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Harold and Carlton, what role has risk played in your life or career?
We’re risk takers. When one ask us what we think of risk, we always reply that we think of the word faith. They go hand and hand. Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. When we entered into a faith/risk business it was a paradigm shift for our live. We could not lean to our own understanding and we had to acknowledge God in ALL thy ways, not just saying it but actually living it. The significance of greatness is always being different. One can not expect to succeed in this lifetime operating in a spirit of fear. The Bible says in 2 Timothy 1:7 (KJV): For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind. I understood that. F.E.A.R. – false evidence appearing real. It all starts with ones mindset. What you dwell on is who you become. We never dwelled in fear. You also have to know that elevation isn’t everyones goal. Growth is scary to those who are stagnant. Your journey will be misunderstood by those that’s not meant to join you.

In closing, we want to remind you the reader that in Isaiah 55:11 (KJV) God said, My word shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it. This for us means, If he called you to it then he will see you through it. A wise man once told us bigger the risk bigger the reward. No risk no reward. We’ll leave you with this; Faith + Focus = Fulfillment. Once you add the both together God then can do exceedingly & abundantly over your life.
