While many think poverty reflects a lack of money, Demetrius Sandridge, author and speaker, knows firsthand that the term holds much more weight than what meets the natural eye. Affectionately known to many as “The Detroit Dog Whisperer”, Sandridge learned early in life that millionaire status had much more to do with mindset than money. It was only when he changed his mind set and associations that he saw his life transform right before his very eyes—and he’s on a mission to aid others in doing the same.  Most people that live in poverty, believe that their situation is Final…that there’s no way out. They blame everything and everybody for their dilemma. But as stated before, POVERTY IS A MINDSET! It has nothing to do with race, or what city you live in… Join us for the conversation!  

From the Host:  Demetrius Sandridge is excited and focused on improving your opportunity and FEELINGS about your finances!   At the young age of 20, Sandridge was afforded the opportunity to chauffeur for a multi-millionaire. Taking notes of his every move, walk and talk, he was inspired to reach for millionaire status after he’d watched his mother struggle to raise him and his three siblings. It was also at this time he realized that as he was earning $50,000 a year as his private chauffeur, while his mother—who’d worked for the millionaire many years as his housekeeper and nanny—made significantly less. Pulling his family out of poverty was no longer a wish, a preference or a nice gesture—it was a mandate.  I’m giving a book away! Write to me at Swifttalk@sherryswift.com and let’s get a copy of his book in your hands!
