Dale Burnett’s Humble Foundation | American Builders Quarterly
As a first-generation American born to Jamaican immigrants in the 1970s, successful corporate executives were not part of Dale Burnett’s daily interactions, but a strong work ethic certainly was. Even though he grew up in inner city New York, Burnett’s parents were adamant when steering him away from self-defeating temptations and toward positive opportunities.
“My parents ingrained in me that hard work was non-negotiable,” Burnett says. “They also taught me that education was the key to realizing the American Dream.”
