Video Review: Black Carpenter by Actor Brian White (Stomp the Yard, Best Man)

The purpose of Black Carpenter is to create a tool box of essential life skills for the next generation.


As talent goes, Brian J. White is about as talented as one man could be. He is smart, witty, athletic, endearing, attractive and giving, among many other qualities. His background includes being accomplished as an actor, NFL player, professional dancer, youth activist and an all-around great guy.

Along with co-author Anna Cheshire Levitan, Brian recently released the Kindle Edition of their new book “Black Carpenter: Straight Talk to Build a Solid Foundation“ through ( Now, Brian can add the title “Author” to his list of accomplishments. This book will undoubtedly change lives and impact futures. Something we are sure this humble gentleman from Massachusetts intends.

Brian stood out in the background of the film “The Best Man” and never had to say a word. Now he is speaking from his heart and sharing his personal knowledge about how to use these tools to become the best you that you can be. The title of the book “Black Carpenter” is a metaphor in the sense that he shows you how to build a successful life – no matter what race, nationality or background from which you derive. 

And he should know!

How many people can say they have played in the NFL, starred on TV shows (Men of A Certain Age, The Shield, Second Time Around, etc.), films (The Family Stone, Stomp The Yard, Fighting, Politics of Love, etc), acquired their license as a stock broker, became a loving husband and has always been known to be a loyal friend? Brian J. White…although he would never say this, because he is one of the most humble men you could ever meet.

In the book Brian shares, “Black Carpenter is divided into five Parts: Education, Health and Fitness, the Arts, Relationships, and Spirituality. Through personal storytelling and honest revelation, I apply the four carpentry tools – the hammer of strength, level of balance, locking pliers of tenacity, and tape measure of accountability – to each part. I tell you the truth about my life and journey to become a Black Carpenter, the mistakes I made and lessons I learned the hard way. My tales are not perfect and my actions are not always admirable, but they are real. I banged my fingers with the hammer more than a couple of times until I learned the lesson of strength through humility (White, Brian (2011). Black Carpenter (Kindle Locations 203-208). Kindle Edition.).”

Reach Your Health and Fitness Goals By Avoiding Weekend Weight Gain!

Many of us who are focusing on eating healthier and paying attention to our caloric intake find it more difficult to do so on the weekends. This is usually the time we go out to eat, spend time with family and friends and for the most part, they don’t eat like us. The weekends are usually the time we relax from the hustle and bustle of work and I believe subconsciously we relax from the hustle and bustle of maintaining our health and fitness standards.

The EPOC Effect is One Of the Fastest Ways to Healthy Weight Loss!

Stephen Pierce, international Internet marketing and public speaking rock star, was 295lbs and in less than 1 year went to 223lbs and 9.5% body fat.

I spent this past weekend at Stephen Pierce’s Infinite Internet Workshop, which was a life changing phenomenal experience. Stephen shared with us how to make money on the Internet. He gave goo gobs of different ways to make money but he also showed us 2 of the fastest ways to make money now! The workshop was about so much more than making money on the Internet. Stephen explained that in order to change your life, you need to change your mind which begins with your foundational beliefs. He told us not to just take notes but to take action! Stephen shared his personal journey about how he went from being homeless, living in office buildings to becoming a multi-millionaire, having a global presence and impact with his message!  He spoke of the different components in our lives that need to be addressed in order for us to reach our maximal potential. One of those components was health and fitness. He shared his daily success routine with us and gave us a sneak peak into his workout regime. He said he only works out for 20 very intense minutes along with some his fighting techniques (ask him about all of that!) It made me think about a class that I taught in my 6 week Reign in Health and Fitness boot camp.
