Malcolm "MJ" Harris overcame extraordinary challenges - childhood abuse, financial ruin, and a learning disability - to create a platform that reaches over 20 million people every month!
Malcolm showed an early interest in entrepreneurship, often working alongside his grandmother making cold calls for her insurance and network marketing businesses at the tender age of 12. Teased as a child, he developed a thick skin and his trademark “gift of gab” which he used to negotiate his way out of encounters with bullies. Labeled as learning disabled, Malcolm was fueled by a desire to prove any naysayers wrong, and use his talents to transform the lives of others.
After starting various failed businesses during and after college, Malcolm landed a position at a Big 4 management consulting firm. He recognized early on that the 9-to-5 life was not for him, and that he wanted something more. Looking for a way out, he unsuccessfully tried his hand at network marketing and other start-up businesses racking up over $100,000 in debt. Facing bankruptcy, Malcolm finally took the advice of his grandmother to obtain his insurance license as a way to earn extra money.
As he grew more frustrated with corporate America, Malcolm increasingly focused his energies on his budding insurance business - often working late into the night from his dining room table. His goal was to earn an extra $2,750 each month. Within 6 months, he made $10,109 in commissions in a single week. Within a few years, he left his 6-figure consulting job to focus on his business, National Care Financial Group.
In just 6 short years, Malcolm has used his global online platform to recruit over 5000 team members and grow his multi-million dollar agency into one of the largest African-American owned insurance agencies in the world.
Malcolm’s digital media reign when he was 24. It started out as just an outlet – something to do as a distraction from working a job he hated. His big break came when he was suddenly thrust center stage at Oprah’s The Life You Want Tour after a chance, face-to-face encounter with Oprah. After being featured by Oprah, Malcolm’s videos took off as views and “likes” grew from the hundreds, to thousands, to millions - and he has never looked back. A shy person by nature, Malcolm often jokes he channels his “MJ” persona online, offering matter-of-fact advice on all things finance, business, and relationships.
Through his global multimedia conglomerate, Malcolm shares his secrets of success and empowerment via his online mentorship program for minority entrepreneurs, live events, news segment, podcast, YouTube channel, and a host of eCourses and other online resources dedicated to helping people transform their spiritual, financial, and professional lives. His authentic delivery style and magnetic personality have afforded him a loyal following of over 20,000,000 people across all of his digital footprint.
Malcolm has consistently beaten the odds - and he has no plans of slowing down. A sought-after lecturer and motivational speaker, Malcolm is frequently called upon to offer his expertise to corporations, non-profits, and youth organizations all over the country.
His charitable heart leads him to personally give to many causes that promote financial literacy and support victims of all kinds of abuse. His own struggles with childhood abuse are the impetus for his latest philanthropic endeavor, National Care Foundation. He is committed to helping each and every person he encounters live the limitless life they desire and deserve!
