ATLiens: Kyle Webb
Like many of my close friends and associates, Kyle Webb is not like most people.
I met my Morehouse brother during our college days in Atlanta through a mutual friend of ours, Sylvanna King, who has since passed. I remember our first encounter. He was more mature than the rest of us. His voice was deeper than ours. He was serious. I'd even call his demeanor perpetually intentional. Kyle didn't and still doesn't do anything without purpose or flies by the seat of his pants by any means. If he was going to a party, it was to get a number or 2. If he was drinking it was to get drunk. If he was going to class, he was en route to kick ass and take names. He's accomplished so much as a result of hard work, diligence and that aforementioned focus. He credits his parents for laying a strong foundation for he and his siblings. Kyle is one of the few people I know who absolutely doesn't need a graduate degree in order to advance and make more money, but yet and still he's enrolled in business school at USC as a personal challenge to himself and betterment of his own soft skills.
Since our days at The House, we both moved back to Los Angeles and continued building on our friendship. He's someone who I admire and aspire to be like. Today, he's the proud and successful franchisee of two McDonald's locations, as well as the CFO of his family's company Webb Family Enterprises where they manage 16 locations.
