Meet Thaabit

Speaker. Leader. Inspiration.

Teaching At-Risk Youth Critical Decision-Making Skills to Create Happy, Healthy, and Free Lives

Husband and father of two, I'm very passionate about life and the pursuit of happiness. Having served 8 1/2 years in some of the worst North Carolina prisons from the ages of 16-25, I've overcome a world of obstacles and hardships.

After turning my life around, I'm now a General Manager for one of the world's largest restaurant corporations. Daily I impact lives, speaking life into and leading the hearts of individuals, while inspiring the actions needed to get to the next level!

My mission is to assist you, both personally and professionally, to overcome any obstacles and challenges, and accomplish your individual goals and dreams.

Past Client Experiences

What People Say


Thaabit spoke to my school several years ago and was very impactful in helping me turn my behaviors around. I was doing terrible in school, not listening to my parents or teachers. He taught me that for every action, there's a consequence that could be life altering.

Michael L.

As a General Manager, Thaabit taught me discipline and work ethic. McDonald's was my first job, and his focus, drive, and leadership demonstrated how important it is to give 100% everyday. He really helped me to be a successful young adult, confident in my abilities to do and be great!

Keyshia S.

I really struggled with drug/alcohol addiction from an early age. After listening to Thaabit talk about his experiences with substance abuse which led to his incarceration, I began to question my behaviors. I'm now 2 years clean, living a respectable, productive life!
