In the midst of a crisis - be it big or small - things seem bleak. For Chicago native, entrepreneur and radio host AC Green, almost everything in his life was in crisis. A failed marriage, ailing mother, business setbacks and the pending loss of his home brought on many sleepless nights. For the first time he questioned how his once comfortable life was now in jeopardy of financial ruin. In just a few short years his world went from being the mastermind behind now President Barack Obamaís historic campaign slogan, "Yes We Can," to total uncertainty.
Raised in a nurturing, middle class, socially conscience, spiritually based family; Green went back to his roots. "I let that be my guide to fighting for the life Iíve worked for and that which my parents sacrificed for me and my siblings to have." says Green. Being hit by a fledging economy like many others, AC reinvented himself in order to keep the life he once had and to create an even more financially stable future. He moved on from his marriage to co-parent his son, accepted assistance with the care of his mother and promised God if he found a way to save his home from foreclosure that he would help others save their homes too.
AC says, "My crisis put me in direct alignment to live the life Iíve always known God had in store for me." What he didnít know is that in saving his home, heíd end up hosting a national Radio Show in Chicago that bears his name, "The AC Green Show." What started as a platform for him to advocate and educate listeners on the foreclosure epidemic has become a national radio show, broadcasting as a rate mate to The Tom Joyner Morning Show and The Michael Baisden Show. "The AC Green Show," is a blend of music, entertainment, information and empowerment. R&B crooners, Charlie Wilson and Kem, Grammy Award winning gospel sensation Kirk Franklin and Mary Mary, actress comedienne Kim Coles and actor Jimmy Jean Louis are just some of the friends of the show.
In the last four years, Green has gone from almost losing everything to losing nothing. He openly acknowledges that heís gained much more from having gone through his personal crisis and is thankful that he now impacts the lives of millions of people.
In keeping with the mission of his program to inform, entertain and be life changing, AC has started his "Back2Zero: Taking Your life to the Next Level" series, with leading experts like personal finance manager, AKA The Money Coach, Lynnette Khalfani-Cox, author and VH-1ís "Celebrity Fit Club" resident doctor, Dr. Ian Smith and more, to help listeners live their optimal life. The series will culminate in February with the debut of ACís book "Back2Zero: Winning Against All Odds." AC has taken his straight forward, passionate style of delivery from his radio show to the pages of his book to encourage people to fight forward and reach their highest potential, be it with their careers, finances, health, relationships or social involvement.
When AC started his show, he was still in the midst of his crisis and didnít know how things were going to turnout; yet even then, he said and with his success he continues to say, "I will be the victor and not the victim. I am the change I want to see. Life as we once knew it will never be again. But the life we are worthy of is waiting for us to claim it."
