An Attitude of Success

“I’m not sure we could have won that championship without Flash’s on-field contribution, but it was his attitude off the field that was even more important to our success! 80% of Americans won’t change something until they experience a great deal of discomfort. Flash shows us how to be a part of the 20% who take control”

  – Lou Holtz, ESPN Analyst and Former Head Coach, the University of Notre Dame

Flash’s attitude, along with his desire to help others has been the cornerstone of his success. His desire to help others has led him to become the CEO of a multi-million dollar youth organization that strives to help youth dealing with problems of mental, physical and emotional abuse, neglect and abandonment. He knows how to help others overcome obstacles and find the solutions to make lasting personal change.

What others have to say about Flash…
