View photos from the event "I'm excited to partner with Mezlan, a one-of-a-kind company that represents uncommon quality and a rare standard of excellence, in the pre-release of my first book," says Raymond. "In Playing the Game Without a Coach, I share my unlikely journey from foster kid to prominent business owner and committed mentor. It's a raw portrait of growing up in a family burdened with mental illness and domestic violence, building relationships through prison walls, and discovering what living a rich life really means. Playing the Game Without a Coach is a story of courage, resilience, and, ultimately, forgiveness." Mezlan stores around the country will offer Raymond's book for sale, also available online on Raymond's website. Raymond recently shared his inspirational message at South Atlanta High School along with Horace Dukes http://www.dukesfoundation.org and Mezlan's own Frank McCullough Jr. In support of their inspirational message, Mezlan donated 100 pairs of shoes to the boys at SAHS, helping then to put their best foot forward at their important life events.
