  • A word with the wise

    “You got to start somewhere.”
    As the old saying goes, everyone who has ever achieved something or become successful had to start somewhere. Once finding somewhere to begin, whether it be at a small shop, the backyard or their own home, the successful and achieving most likely had someone who mentored and taught them what they needed to know to be successful. A famous TV show host, a U.S Senator, the founder of Facebook and a baseball legend all had mentors.

    By Larry Vaught
