When I attended the NAACP Image Awards luncheon I spoke to HGTV host and author, Egypt Sherrod who is nominated for the release of her first book, “Keep Calm…It’s Just Real Estate: Your No Stress Guide To Buying A Home.” Egypt's show, “Property Virgins” is highly rated and can be seen every week on HGTV. Recently, HGTV green-lit her original spin off show “Flipping Virgins.” The show consists of three parts: she helps the investors find a property to flip, she then helps them renovate it – then, they sell it. Since Egypt seems to embody success I asked her what is the best advice she could give to young people about never giving up. She immediately recalled something Oprah Winfrey shared with her. Watch Egypt's answer below.
Egypt Sherrod’s ‘Keep Calm It’s Just Real Estate‘ is available for purchase online at Amazon.com or KeepCalmItsJustRealEstate.com. For more information on Egypt Sherrod visit egyptsherrodrealestate.com and egyptcares.org.
Make sure you watch the 47th NAACP Image Awards, which will broadcast live on Friday, February 5 (9:00 p.m. ET/PT tape-delayed) on TV One.
