I live to make a difference....helping people to understand their talents to make the world a better place and to fulfill their dreams.
I left the military about 15 years ago to go into international humanitarian work and got involved in Central and South Amercia, Africa, Asia and the Middle East. I have learned that in just about every place on earth...even those dealing with extreme poverty...that people know what they need and pretty much what is is going to take to make it happen. What they ultimately lack is access to knowledge, access to resources and access to those who can help them implement.
This is not about us telling people what to do but instead helping people help themselves. Everyone has heard the saying...give a person a fish and they eat for a day. Teach a person to fish and they eat for a lifetime....well I think it is time for a new saying and that is if we can teach people how to fish farm and then connect them to a global marketplace then the entire village eats for a lifetime....and helping to play a positive role in that journey is my mission in life.
