Brandon Crawford better known as B Crawford
was born and raised in Los Angeles, CA. He realized at the early stage
of his life the opportunity to prosper would indeed be measured
by hard work, sacrifice, and commitment. From his childhood experiences
he understood that nothing is impossible and with the will to persevere
not only can he fulfill his purpose which is to be of service to
others but in the process he understands it’s not what you become it’s
about who you become while moving forward on your journey. Brandon has
learned that before you can move forward and grow from your past there’s
a reason for everything you go through and it is important for you to
understand why you went through it.
From fear, to stress, to
gambling addiction, to not completely trusting himself and his
abilities, not to mention dealing with procrastination for years,
Brandon has been fully aware of his weaknesses throughout life and
through the ups and downs he is still determined to face adversity as he
continues to keep going with a positive attitude knowing that each day
presents a new day in which he will not only strive to be better but in return he will gain strength to be the man that he needs to be.
Brandon’s passion for health and fitness at the age of 15 eventually
led him years later to become a personal trainer. He attained his
certification credentials with International Sport Science Association
(ISSA) and 6 years later with valuable experience he shows no signs of
stopping in fact he plans to further his education with the University
of Mastermind and Body in hopes to bring change that will inspire others
to follow the path that leads to achieving their goals along with true
happiness. In addition to the Mastermind and Body movement he has also
decided he will attack and go after his degree in business
marketing/communication studies, and by doing so both will be great
assets that prep him to be ready for a world that’s very competitive but
full of many opportunities. Brandon is schedule to launch both heaven
& health network and heaven and health athletes in 2013 so stay
De Son Williams was born and raised in south
central Los Angeles.With the exception of living a couple years in
Palmdale, CA. But, after a horrific car accident that nearly took the
lives of him, his mother and sister, his mother briskly decided to move back to the inner city, closer to family and her job.
Growing up without a father, De Son has always struggled to find his
way, but he has always been determined to make his own way as opposed to
having one superimposed upon him. This determination led De Son to
making alot of very unwise choices throughout his life which resulted in
him not graduating high school, going in and out of jail, being a
womanizer, hustling and living the fast life which led to him being shot
7x's leaving a hollywood club. De Son was so caught up in his ways that
this experience did not effect him or his mindset. In fact, only a week
later De Son was back to his old antics; drunk at a house party, body
riddled with fresh bullet wounds, putting his most valued asset at the
time, his "swag" on display.
"I was so used to going through things in my life that I had become immune to the effects of them"
The occasion that was to change De Son's life forever took place when
he was 12 years old. De Son and his family were kidnapped and held
hostage by his mothers husband (father of his younger brother) whom she
had left and he was unwilling to accept the situation. During this
process De Son witnessed his sister knocked unconscious and his mother
stabbed and nearly murdered. These are images that were to forever be
burned into his subconscious. For a long period of time De Son was
unable to sleep with out having nightmares or being abruptly awakened by
the slightest of sounds in or around the house, in fear that the husband
had returned to finish off his mother. After recovering from that
incident De Son made two vows in his life; To be the protector of his
family and loved ones and to never be a "victim" again. However, these
vows were mixed with the emotion of hatred which when acted upon caused
De Son to behave in some very selfish and unorthodox ways.
wasn't until De Son began to find himself in 2010 that he realized that
in not forgiving and harboring negative emotions for people who had hurt
him in his life he was only hurting and hindering himself. So he
began to forgive, and he began to let go. In letting go he found that it
was easier for him to be happy and to love. That is when his life
"It is easier to fly when you don't have anything holding you down"
De Son went back to school, in which he is now in the process of
obtaining his degree in Sports Medicine. He was married to the woman who
is now the mother of one of his two children. He started a business and
he found his purpose in life! Which is to motivate and inspire the life
back into the masses. De Son has one goal, to change the world! But his
road to perfection has not been easy and it shows no signs of giving
up, but neither does he! In 2011, while asleep with his wife and his
daughter in her room, De Son's town home caught fire, but he and his
family were able to escape unharmed. For the next month De Son and his
wife were living out of their car and random motels.
"I lost practically everything. But my family was o.k. so I was perfect.I immediately recognized the strategy of the enemy and was determined to not let him succeed. I kept a smile on my face, did not miss a day of school, we never once went with out a meal, and never slept without a roof over our head and I REMAINED HAPPY" I was no longer operating under strength, it was impossible, I only made it by will"
De Son and his wife are now separated. His pursuit of perfection
inadvertently applies pressure to those around him. He believes that
pressure either busts pipes or it makes diamonds. He is deliberate about
being better in his life he expects the same from those around him.
"Thou shalt not be unequally yoked" He understands that everyone will
not adhere to this mindset and he believes that it is important not to
judge others, only love them in their walk. But if they are toxic to
your spiritual development then it is better to love them from a
distance, its just as effective.
"My life doesn't belong to me, it belongs to my father and I will not allow anyone or anything to hinder His purpose".
De Son feels that everything he has been through in his life has
prepared him for his purpose and he is ready to take it on FEARLESSLY.
Before he leaves this earth he is determined to leave a kingdom for his greatest grandchildren and a legacy of greatness.
