Not long after that, requests began to pour in for Yusef to share his story at local government meetings, college campus events, and companies in Silicon Valley. After securing employment in the private school sector as an African-American Studies School Teacher.

In 2014, it was time to bring to life his dream and prayer to serve his community full-time as founder of the Timelist Group, Inc., which is now a successful multi-million dollar operation serving the very community he once helped to destroy as a gang member.

Yusef is now giving back to his community by providing a number of programs such as housing for reentry and unhoused individuals, and workforce programs which have allowed him to hire system-impacted people with a history of felony arrest. The Timelist Group now employs over 125 people from its predominately African-American community.
