A Message to teens, parents and everyone:

Hi, this is Daryl L. Mackey Sr. and believe that I am a facilitator of things.  My gift is the generation of ideas and the creation of visions for what might be possible. I was raised to always stand in front of the crowd and never follow. It was my father who instilled this in me.  When he passed away, it became my desire to tell his story and share his legacy.  I wanted others to understand who he was and what he had accomplished. And to inspire our younger fellows, and you, about what you can do if you dedicate your whole self to it.

Sometimes one book can make all the difference in your life.  Perhaps you have heard about this book, Teamesteem™ is the Key to a Teen’s Financial Dreams, from a parent, coach, teacher, mentor or friend who wants to give you a resource for making good financial choices.  The transition from spending money with no understanding or goal is over.  Implementing a good financial plan with good financial strategies and a network of people who understand the Teamesteem™ concept, will help you achieve your financial dreams.

I’ve grown to understand that you can never truly know a person until you know his entire story.   But, I am not a writer, rather, I am a facilitator of things. For once in my life, I had to stand aside. I had to share my idea with someone else and trust them to bring my vision to life.  I had to follow. The transition was not as difficult as I had imagined. I had to take a page from my own philosophy and adhere to the principals of TeamesteemTM.   I chose someone from my circle of influencers who knew our history and understood what I needed better than I did. The result is an illuminating piece of work that has taught me why I am, who I am.

Sunsets from the Back Porch

Harnessing the Gifts and Talents that Lies Within

I would like to introduce you to Azalea Mackey. She holds our family’s history in her memory. Writing and research for her is a hobby and a means of creative expression. She has many gifts and shares them freely with those around her.  She is originally from eastern North Carolina but has resided in Northern Virginia for many years.  The entire series will be a must read and I encourage you to be on the lookout for it.

The Legacy of a Barber,” is the first in a series of short stories from a collection entitled “Sunsets from the Back Porch” The series explores the journey of our southern, African American family, the people that surrounded us and the communities in which we lived.  In this first story, the author takes you on an intimate look at a legacy that was created in our family and shows how it molded the generations that followed.

It is her first attempt at capturing the family’s oral storytelling and preserving it in the written form. She easily marries the family’s history to the history and aura of the time periods she guides you through.  She paints a fluid picture that intrigues you. It inspires and challenges you to explore the details of your own past. It leaves you curiously waiting for the next installment.

It is clear that this is a passion project for the author. One that has taken time and space to create. Her unique approach guides you from what she saw and heard as a child, to her understanding of those experiences as an adult. While her work was created as a road map to share with the younger generations of the family, she has been encouraged to share it with the world.
