The above information details what I have done and continues to do, however it doesn't describe who I m or my purpose in life. I am a person from a family of nine, with an 76 year old brother and a 96 year old mother who I respect dearly. I' m from a little town in VA with a population of about 9,000 which hasn't changed much in 50 years. I have an unshakable determination to see others succeed. My desire is to help individuals become all they want to be. The road to my own success was not easy. I experienced some bumps, brusies, and some brokenness along the way. At times I felt that life had dealt me a horrible blow and started to feel sorry for by lack of discipline, confidence and desire; I once blamed everyone for my failures except myself. I just didn't feel good about myself. What piqued my interest in the self-development and leadership industry was actually a quote from the Christian Bible which says that, "All things are possible for those who believe." This was not just inspiration, but a motivator for me to stop feeling sorry for myself. And I did, I started on the road to success through self-development, working hard on character development, personal branding, confidence building, reading and writing about life experiences and perhaps becoming a very good communicator through answering God's call to motivate others.
I have a feeling that you are just like me. Someone with a desire to be the best you are capable of being. Perhaps someone referred you to this site or you were attracted to my skill set, whatever path you took I 'm delighted that you have taken an interest in what I can offer your organization.
