Today, Anwar's Reflections sat down with entrepreneur, motivational speaker, and community activist Tracey Syphax. During the interview, Syphax discussed his passion not only for entrepreneurship but also his deep commitment to giving back to the community. If you don't already know his inspirational story, allow me to fill you in. As a younger man, Syphax had a history of drug abuse and gangster activity, which eventually landed him in prison early on in life. As one can only imagine, it was hard for Syphax to get back on his feet after being released from prison, but yet he did it. Through hard work and determination, Syphax was able to clear his name and start his own business. Sixteen years later, you can find Syphax running two successful businesses, Capitol City Contracting and the Phax Group, LLC. At Capitol City Contracting, they specialize in roofing, siding, windows, and general construction.
Syphax firmly believes in taking his skills outside the boardroom and giving back to the community. Currently, you can find Syphax involved in a program called Minding Our Business (MOB). This program is a form of community outreach that is sponsored by Rider University's College of Business Administration. The purpose of MOB is to advance the personal and vocational development of Trenton youth (i.e. sixth and seventh graders) through entrepreneurship education and mentoring.
