Emmy Award winner Robert Guillaume, passed away in his sleep on Tuesday October 24th, 2017 at the age of 89.
Robert Guillaume my Dear Friend and Show Business Coach
Robert was my personal Show business adviser. He was the STAR on the award-winning TV show “Benson” and appeared in a multiplicity of successful acting roles on television and Broadway, where he prolifically starred as Phantom of the Opera to name a few. Robert Guillaume was a legend and a staunch supporter of the Color It Success movement. He was friend to all who knew him personally. He was an advocate for improving the images of people of Color in the media, while also insisting on lifting people from all backgrounds.
I will be forever grateful to Robert for the confidence he instilled in me to proceed with power and love in the showcasing of positive lifestyles of Successful and Colorful Achievers.
Robert’s accomplishments derived from humble beginnings. Although he grew up in a “poor” neighborhood and institutional racism, he did not accept that as a stop sign, but used it as a guide line to think positively, dream big and maintained an upwardly mobile direction to pull himself up mentally and ultimately became a most prolific performer, actor, singer, humanitarian who was full of great stories, kindness, a beautiful voice and was admired by millions.Gone, but will never be forgotten for his humble Spirit. Robert’s love, kindness and teachings will live with me forever. Rest in peace.

RIP Muhammad Ali
A Color It Success Champion
Rest in Peace Muhammad. Gone but will never be forgotten.
Being one of millions of people who were privileged to meet Muhammad personally was a moment I will never forget. The personal attention he gave to me was friendly, warm and lasting.
Upon meeting his daughter Maryum Ali she and I bonded and our relationship blossomed as a result of her and my daughter being friends for many years. I view Maryum as my niece. I just wish I was closer to her this day to hug her and hold her close as she and her family goes through the loss of her Dear Dad.
Muhammad, the greatest he was and will always be in the hearts of many. Now he is there in heaven with his maker welcoming him on in, with arms wide open for a job well done here on earth.
Rest in Peace Muhammad. We will always love you.

Harriet Tubman to grace the front of the $20.00 Bill.
Congratulations Harriet Tubman, Color It Success salutes you posthumously, for your incredible bravery, fearlessness and anti-slavery movement. Your courage to help free enslaved human beings from the chains that bound them like animals rather than human beings. You were an anti-slavery power-house that helped with the birth of this Color It Success opportunity. Now millions of colorful achievers in the world today are leading positive lives and accomplishing much Success with beautiful lifestyles that helps to move our planet forward. The underground railroad Harriet Tubman improvised paved the way to freedom from slavery because the fact of the matter is that all men are created equal and belongs only to God and not the chains that bounded them by the so-called supreme humans of a lighter color. We thank you Ms. Tubman for your courage, bravery and successful movement that also helped to make the Color It Success lifestyle a reality.
