(BPRW) A Steady Climb to Change/Thrivin Online with Ashley D. Bell

By Joseph Ellick, BPRW National News Correspondent & Host/Thrivin Online

(Black PR Wire) Miami, FL--- Growing up, everyone had a dream or goal and envisioned themselves at the mountain top. Once you begin that life journey up to the mountain, “life” happens, ultimately placing as many obstacles along the way and creating detours as you navigate back to your planned route toward progress. It takes a determined individual with self-discipline, motivation, and a strong mental compass to persevere and travail, remaining focus-driven to reach that mountain top, making those much-needed adjustments along the way. One individual who has all of those attributes is Ashley D Bell.

Growing from being a vibrant, young and engaging entrepreneur who strived to make a difference; to now a pivotal figure in our nation with the ability to help empower and inspire others in many ways, Ashley has made a steady climb to get where he is today and The THRIVIN ONLINE crew was granted an exclusive interview to see what changes he has in store.

With all the unflattering media surrounding our current President, it’s rare that he is celebrated for doing anything positive. That all changed earlier in the year when he appointed Ashley Daniel Bell as Regional Administrator for the U.S. Small Business Administration for Region IV. Serving nine districts located in the eight Southeastern States of Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee.  Regional Administrator Bell has oversight of over $5 billion in SBA-backed lending, the Counseling arm of the SBA, which counseled over 225,000 entrepreneurs last year in Region IV, and the contracting programs for small business, which account for over 23% of all federal contracts awarded. As a small business owner and entrepreneur himself from the young age of 22, Mr. Bell is committed to the SBA’s mission to aid, counsel, assist and protect the interests of small business concerns, to preserve free competitive enterprise and to maintain and strengthen the overall economy of our nation.

A native of Gainesville Georgia, Ashley Bell has seen disappointment all around him but in the midst of the turmoil, he found a way to escape it and stand for justice, not only for his town but for all of America. From starting as a lawyer, being elected the youngest commissioner ever in the county, and representing the 3rd fastest growing area in America, to starting his own organization by the name of Generation Inspiration - where his mission is to teach life skills to at-risk students and set them on a trajectory for success. Ashley Bell is a prime example of a role model and an African American man who is and will continue to thrive.
