Carlos Wallace is a bestselling author, motivational speaker, and youth advocate. 

Carlos has written two books that have earned the businessman turned social activist national acclaim. “Life Is Not Complicated, You Are: Turning Your Biggest Disappointments into Your Greatest Blessings” is currently an integral part of the Psychology curriculum at Lone Star College in Houston, Texas. The esteemed guest lecturer at Lone Star College-University Park is an honorary member of the Psi Beta National Honor Society in Psychology and ranks among Houston's top education advocates. Carlos’ “Life Is Not Complicated, You Are: Digital Narrative is one of the first audiobooks ever added to the Tidal© high fidelity music streaming service library. The narrative is also featured on Spotify, Apple Music and iTunes. His second work, “The Other 99 T.Y.M.E.S: Train Your Mind to Enjoy Serenity” is the inspiration behind an award winning television program of the same name.  Both books are hailed as guides to living with purpose and gratitude. Professors and victim’s advocates use the books as examples in overcoming adversity to achieve personal and professional success. 

Born and raised in East Texas, Wallace says his small town upbringing fuels his passion to teach young men and women about self-esteem, work ethic, financial literacy and character building. He is often called upon to speak at schools (Middle schools, High Schools and Colleges) in New York, Atlanta, and Florida. Carlos developed and moderates a proprietary mentorship and leadership program for New York City’s York College (part of City University of New York public university system) entitled, “The Life Is Not Complicated, You Are: Transfer of Power” speaking series.

Carlos uses his decades-long career as a fifth generation railroader and his experience as a Navy veteran to counsel others about commitment, loyalty and preparing for retirement. Carlos is also a graduate of the National Labor College and an expert in labor relations, mediation and contract negotiations. An alum of Union Pacific’s elite Brakeman/Conductor and Engineer schools, he is often called upon as a consultant during high profile hearings involving railroad employees facing disciplinary action.. The International Organizer, one of few African-Americans to hold that position, also helped run several political campaigns including those of  Democratic Presidential candidate Barack H. Obama.

Carlos was tapped to be part of Google’s exclusive “Next Gen” think tank. He joins a group of policy leaders at the forefront of technology and racial justice, and who have distinguished themselves in business, public service, content creation, education and activism. 

Wallace is also President and CEO of entertainment and philanthropy company, Sol-Caritas (pronounced kuh-REE-tus). Under the leadership of the successful businessman, Sol has produced a series of multi-city tours and events featuring stand-up comics and entertainers from Houston, New York, Atlanta, Chicago and Los Angeles. The company is the only Houston-based entertainment enterprise to produce monthly comedy and poetry shows and donates generously to over 100 non-profit local and internationally recognized charities, including Covenant House, the American Diabetes Association, Haiti Relief, the American Cancer Society, and Lupus Foundation of America. 

A patron of the arts and a trailblazer when it comes to providing young, undiscovered talent with opportunities to perform at the country’s top venues, Carlos and a team of veteran poets have joined forces to present a series of spoken word productions at the Houston, Dallas and Arlington Improvs. A documentary of one the shows is slated to air on Netflix and Amazon Prime Video.

The noted author continues to use his compelling story of triumph and tragedy to explore the value in everyday life experiences and demonstrate how everyone can use his or her past to become empowered.

The proud husband and father divides his time between homes in Houston and New York. He is married to award-winning journalist, television anchor and children’s book writer, Liz Faublas.
