Spotlighting Richard D. Sutton, Author of “Fear of Becoming a Man”

DC Nitelife is spotlighting Richard D. Sutton, who is a Philadelphia native, an author, speaker, and inspiration. He is the author of Fear of Becoming a Man; Inspirational Speaker; Owner of PDQ Management, LLC; Founder of The Amari Academy; and a Financial Literacy Coach.

Mr. Sutton officially released his debut novel in November of 2016. Fear of Becoming a Man chronicles the author’s tale of his struggles with understanding what becoming a man should be. The book tells how the author faced the realization that no one had ever explained to him the difficulties of being a black male. With no true positive role models to help combat the negative impact of society’s degenerate depiction of black men, he faced the arduous journey all while being raised amidst the urban decay of Philadelphia. The author was desperately trying to figure it all out while being counted out due to his educational challenges and his own personal insecurities. Not only is the fear relevant, the fear is real…the fear of becoming a MAN!

  • Identify how self-affirmations impact daily change.
  • Recognize the falsehoods of manhood.
  • Understand what we feed our conscious self impacts our subconscious mind.
  • Understand the importance of credit, banking, and money management.
