Jameen is a Cincinnati, Ohio native. Growing up in a broken home, Jameen knows first hand about persevering through obstacles. As one who some considered a statistic, and an "at risk teen", he learned early to never give up. He went on to start a successful career in real estate at the tender age of 19.
Jameen has been a licensed Realtor and entrepreneur for over 13 years, with hundreds of satisfied clients. He is a entrepreneur at heart, with business interests in real estate, public speaking, and writing.
He found a passion for speaking and mentoring while serving 4 years as a Sunday school teacher and teen ministry leader. In October 2009, he started a young adults ministry called "The Gap" Ministries, that focused on reaching the 18-35 age group.
Jameen is a cutting edge public speaker. As a Cincinnati Youth Collaborative Mentor, he started a group mentoring program called Tomorrow's Kings, for at risk boys in grades 4-6. He regularly speaks at programs, conferences, and seminars throughout the year. He is a passionate teacher at heart, that loves to help others obtain their goals and maximize their potential.
"We must change our thinking from I want, to I can. From I can, to I will. And last, from I will, to I am." Jameen Willis
