Today we’d like to introduce you to the CEO of K&Q Financial Group: Bernard C. Akomas, MBA.
Bernard, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
I’ve always desired to become wealthy since I was a child and eventually became fascinated with business, finance and investing. One reason I wanted to become wealthy is to have the ability to help others and teach them how to become and stay wealthy. Growing up on the south side of Dallas, Texas. I did not see many wealthy people and as I got older, I would think to myself “how do the wealthy, become and stay wealthy?” After wasting two years and not really having a plan on what I wanted to do with my life, at the age of 20, I decided to take my mom’s advice and enroll in community college. Six years later, I graduated with my MBA and excelled professionally in the supply chain industry. Considering myself very blessed with a good job, a nice salary, married to my middle school sweetheart and three beautiful children, something was still missing….I desired financial freedom. I wanted to be in total control of my income and earning potential which Corporate America didn’t provide. I prayed for guidance to change my direction and to obtain what I truly desired, and a month later, I started my own business. Continuing to work my normal 9-5 and working part-time on my business, I used my main income source to fund my business. After many long nights and weekends, my business became profitable.
Has it been a smooth road?
Overcoming poverty, having my first child at 16, obtaining my GED, and in and out of the judicial system as a teen is anything but experiencing a “smooth road” in life. I have had my share of trials and tribulations throughout my life but with faith on my side, I knew I would have a successful life and career. My mother played a huge roll in my success. She always saw greatness in me even when I didn’t see in myself. She is honestly one of my biggest supporters and my hero. She planted the seed within me to work hard and my own business and I am forever grateful and appreciative. At the age of 27, I begin to read, study and execute my abilities which later gave me the courage to start my own business. I guess you can say, I began to water the seed my mother planted, developed a plan and stuck to it…Now three years later, I am here and flourishing.
