They were sponsored to go to Chicago, Illinois. His father joined them and they were together with the help of the St. Patrick’s church in Chicago. Times were tough growing up but Omar was still able to excel in sports with track and power lifting. He was actually able to get a scholarship for music since he was also gift with his Mom’s beautiful soprano voice. Omar’s dad was able to accumulate within seven years three gas stations, an auto part store, a block full of real estate and his own home. Omar’s dad knew how accumulate material wealth but did not know how to keep it. His dad had a heart attack when Omar was in college and so Omar went back home to help the family get back on their feet. LISTEN UP to hear what Omar did to rebuild his family’s life and his own.

Later on Omar moves to California and starts a business to train celebrities like Tom Selleck, Gregory Harrison, and Kareem Abdul-Jabbar and also work as a salesman since they make a lot of money. Things were not getting better and he tapped into the power of prayer. He ask God to help him, then one of the investors of the fitness club he work at also manages speakers like: Tom Hopkins, Jim Rohn, Dr. Maxwell Maltz, Zig Ziglar, and Bob Proctor. The investor asked Omar to train him since Omar was the top trainer. Omar had never heard of the speakers and the investor decided to help Omar by taking him under his wing. Omar went from the worst sales person to the number 1 in the country in health and fitness. Omar created a name for himself and with the help of the investor they both built and bought health clubs.
