“I love living in the Queen City (as it is locally known),” says Perkins. “There is always something to do, like attending a Carolinas Panthers game or Charlotte Hornets game. Also, I enjoy hanging out downtown with the fellas. In Charlotte, you are a short driving distance from the mountains and the beach where I always go swimming.”

“Since I believe in multiple streams of income, I earn money several ways,” Perkins reveals. “I’ve mentioned day trading, modeling and acting. I also had my own real estate business which has kept me motivated to have multiple lines of income and to have investment diversification.”

“I have always had a good relationship with my mother all my life,” Perkins shares. “She has instilled in me a lot of love and I'm forever grateful for everything she has taught me. My dad and I haven’t always seen eye-to-eye, but despite the differences, we can still talk about the important events in my life.”
