R.J. Messenger, an Erie native, is the owner of Iron Empire clothing, does marketing for Underdog Barbeque, has appeared in movies such as "The Warrior" (starring Tom Hardy) and was most recently featured in the Discovery Channel's hit show "Undercover Billionaire."

Messenger visited SCI Albion on Sept. 27 to speak to Albion's Business Education and Pathways to Success students. He offered his story of how he overcame his past, hurdled various obstacles and how he persevered through adversity and struggle to successfully own his own business and be able to branch out into other areas. He works and lives in Erie and is always looking for opportunities to share his story, to give back, to motivate and to serve as an example of an underdog being able to persist and succeed.
