“Two out of three foster kids, within just one year of aging out of foster care, ended up dead, homeless, or in jail.”

“Who’s gonna say ‘no’ to inspiring the next generation of entrepreneurs?”

“We’ve all been orphaned. We’ve all have been left whether it’s been by our family, friends, society, community, or our own mindset.”

“Two percent of sales happen on the first contact, three percent by the second, five percent by the third.”

“You should have 12 things that you can give of value before they even look at doing business with you.”

“Get through the noise by serving your way to success by giving value, teaching others exactly what it is you get paid for, and watch how much your business grows.”
