“Do good when no one else is watching because you never know where your blessings are going to come from.” – James Collins
James Collins grew up in Cleveland where he was urged as a young man to get a good union job, only to discover the downside of factory work when the factories began to close. He found his calling in the McDonald’s system. Today he is a corporate officer. His journey was aided by mentors in the company who saw more in him than he saw in himself. He also credits networking with other African-American McDonald’s employees to learn how to navigate a corporate world his parents and grandparents had never known.
