“Focus on self. Don’t ever put no one before you, especially when you’re investing in something. Invest in yourself first. I used to be in the music business, and I always had guys around me that I was investing into that was just ungrateful. I used to do everything for them – feed them, travel, all of that. As soon as they got an opportunity to get on somebody else’s bandwagon, they took it.  Ever since then I just thought about investing into myself and this is what I got out of it, and I’ve only been doing it for under a year. I’m a personal chef. It was just something that I always wanted to do as a kid, that passion of cooking. My family always cooked, and it was just something I took up. I quit my job last November, and that was the best thing I ever did. I had to go ahead and just take the jump and leap. – Eddie Williams of Trussville

Williams is the owner of Eddie Kane’s Catering and is loving life now, especially since he is a father, something he never thought he’d become. His son recently had his first birthday.

“I just never thought that I would have kids. I’m a father. Life is great. As soon as he was born, it didn’t really hit me until he got here. When I saw him, I was like, ‘Oh, yeah, this is really real.’ If he can put his mind to it, he can do it. I’m going to make sure that he’s able to see that.”
