I've had the opportunity to hear Dr. Young speak in front of an audience of entrepreneurs, professionals and community leaders. He demanded my attention within the very first sentence. Why? It was on a subject matter, that no matter how much I think I have a hold of it, I can use more encouragement and direction with it. He spoke with definiteness on the subject of overcoming obstacles. I enjoyed hearing how he had to overcome and the strategies he used because no matter who, what, when, why, where and sometimes how, there will be a need to overcome one, two or three.
At the end of his presentation, many felt as if he was speaking just to them. I know felt that way. I definitely left the event feeling renewed and enlighted on a day most needed.

Influences & Inspiration
Hurricane Katrina, the recent California forest fires "Mother Nature" and her natural disasters across America. The devastating snow storms. But it's not the natural disasters that influence me; it's how the people are willing to come together the ones that know each other and those that don't to the aid of each other not only in their time of need but in the needs of strangers. There is no greater influences in the world then that of men/women helping those their fellow man that are down and out on the road of human dignity.
