YOUR ATTITUDE DETERMINES YOUR ALTITUDE
“You Can Have Everything You Want In Life,
If You Will Just Help Enough Other People Get What They Want.” – Zig Ziglar
With this as a guiding principle, I have spent a lifetime helping others achieve greater success.
With more than 35 years’ experience as an entrepreneur, I’ve become proficient in growing
multiple businesses, and developing practices, people, and opportunity along the way. Since
1985, with a great team effort, we’ve grown rent-to-own operations from one store to over
100, franchised 10 wheel/tire locations, built a real estate division within the company, and
In that time, I’ve developed a passion for community service and educating others on the
value of giving back. I take pride in an extensive record of “helping other people get what they
want,” and holding a primary goal to be effective in bettering communities and lives, spending
time where it makes a real difference. I’ve tutored, taught, coached, built homes with Habitat
for Humanity, raised funds, organized legislative efforts, and led countless employees to
better lives through better training, effective communications, and realized opportunity. My
enthusiasm for continuing education and technology as drivers for growth have proven to lead
to greater prosperity for all.
Above all my accomplishments, I hold success as a family man above all the rest and am
most proud of my 39-year marriage to Sharon, my three children, and five grandchildren. I
look forward to serving McKendree University and their students, continuing my life quest to
help others achieve success.
