Five Things You Might Not Know About Maisha Wynn


To my family and friends, I am known as Maisha Wynn. However, the outside world knows me as “WYNN WIN.” For me, Wynn (my last name) and Win a homonym of my last name is no accident at all because I am truly a “wynner.” As a Chicago-based lifestyle specialist and soon-to-be New York Times Best Selling Author, here are 5 things most do not know about me:

1). I am horrified of pigeons. I go into deep prayer, each time I see one near me.

2). My first on-air job was in Numazu, Japan. Numazu is a small city right outside of Tokyo. I was known as DJ Summer Wynn on Coast-FM. We played the best of the best in old school hip hop.

3). After graduating from Spelman College, I worked as a bank teller making $8.75 an hour. It was not my dream job after college. However, I needed to take a mental rest before law school. That was the plan until I read the book, Who Moved My Cheese? The rest is "wynning" history.

4). At eleven years old, I spent the summer in Vedado, Cuba, with the Venceremos Brigade. I met children from all around the world. We would meet daily to talk about various social issues facing our country. Certain days, we didn’t have running water to take a shower or lights to see. After this life-changing experience, I came back to Chicago truly grateful.

5). I’ve never eaten pork. My family was not Muslim. However, my mother went to a farm as a child. After her field trip, she stopped eating pork. As her child, I followed in her footsteps.

I'm so thankful for each experience I have shared with you today. My past is a part of my bright future. Make sure you embrace your journey!

The Wynning Way: A Guide To Creating Success Your Way shows you how to develop your own winning lifestyle through exercises that inspire self reflection and strategies for creating the mindset of a winner.

Enjoy an excerpt:

Early in my youth, I knew that I wanted to attend Spelman College, the famed African American women’s institution in Atlanta. The women I’d read about there reminded me a lot of the woman I admired all my life, my mother. They had a powerful presence about them and were extremely intelligent. Though she was a single mother, my mother made sure I was able to attend this esteemed institution. She left her entire world in Chicago (including family and friends), to start a new life with me in Atlanta. I mean, my mother was my biggest cheerleader.

In order for me to live the best, she made weighty sacrifices—no matter how major they may have been—so much so that she depleted her entire retirement plan so that I could not only go to Spelman, but graduate. Losing her in recent years was like losing the air you breathe. My once vibrant world felt dark and depleted. For months, all I could do was cry my sadness away. It was too painful to realize she was no longer just a phone call away. My mother was truly my favorite girl and best friend. People who I didn’t even know, knew who I was and my story because she was that proud of me. The unconditional love she showered upon me daily is what keeps me going to this very moment.
