Here’s my story. . .

True story (email me & I’ll tell you all the details). 6 months ago I was a poor Utah teacher. Today I’m a motivational speaker and trainer. I’ve traveled all over the country. I’ve learned a lot of things and now I’m going to show you how. And, besides the money, it’s been extremely rewarding to help other people through instruction and inspiration!
