By Renaldo Cortez Rip Gates - Visionary Entrepreneur

I was sitting in my backyard in Sacramento California and life was starting to change in a fast manner due to the coronavirus. I was not expecting the world and age as we have known it to be so devastated within weeks, to never return to the norms we all have been accustomed to in our worlds,
countries, communities, villages and families.

I had recently returned from South Africa in order to accomplish some sports business endeavors, see my children,see my grandson be born, create revenue and then return to SouthA frica to my wife and business partner in order to build into our global initiatives and mission work through Renaldo Cortez Enterprise and our NPC Awii Sports South Africa. Furthermore,
being Head coach of the Soweto Panthers professional Basketball Club of the basketball National League is my love and passion.

I never thought people would be dying by this hellacious virus and life changed forever. But we are here and it is Real. My experience has been one of overcoming trauma and achieving regardless of the challenges life can bring.

I see that this is no different and life is still within me and we as humankind have hope. We will get through this but it is going to take Faith, Focus, vision, strength, commitment and change is painful but needed in order to live beyond this time.
I am a Man of Yah and Faith, a Grandfather and Father, Husband, Head Coach and
Entrepreneur amongst many other gifts and attributes.

I am a Visionary, Creator and Leader who is born for a time such as this. I will lead as best I can and continue to inspire others to keep hope alive and live beyond the fear and pain.

Life has taught me to be a Man of faith with action by living through many traumatic experiences where Yah has saved me from death. I am a Fighter and survivor and I will not give up or quit because life has changed.

Yah has not changed therefore I will trust the Master's Plan and follow the spirit and vision Yah has given me…

I want to Inspire those who are in fear: live by Faith, forgive yourselves and those who have harmed you, choose love, hope, kindness and peace over fear, trouble, death, hate and evil.

Humans will be better after all of this. Keep praying and believing that this storm too shall pass..

During this time of solitude put organization to your vision and write it out. Step by step with pictures, dates, times and locations. We are becoming evolved and humanity is rising to a New Level, Multi dimensionally and spiritually. Lets not fear what is occuring.

Our Slogan at AWII SPORTS is “ Define Yourself and Arise and Win”.

Please think and act on faith and love because it is our greatest weapon..
