The passion to make a difference has been building for 18 years but it wasn't until all of my senses were "fired up" that I became one with purpose.  I have been making a difference for while but never really seeing my "Acres of Diamonds" as Russell Conwell so eloquently said.  Mixing my dream of inspiring a child with Napoleon Hills "Law of Success" and you have what one of my 7 year old students said, "It's like having gummy worms for dinner!"  Ashley Perrin would say "What is great & grand and impossibly bold but the Human Spirit?  To inspire it in yourself and others – is greatness."  I say welcome to the University of Greatness!

I almost didn't make it out of my early 20's due to drugs/alcohol and being a menace to society.  After ending a long-term drug rehab called Straight, Inc I started to see the light - and it wasn't blue and flashing.  I finished 16 months there and my judge said that I should pay my debt to society so I entered Shock Incarceration, a 4 month boot camp situated inside the state prison of NH.  This is where I got my first understanding of Napoleon Hill.  The 4 month course coincided with the 16 lessons of Dr. Hill's philosophy of individual achievement.  After completing the program, I started back at the only college I ever wanted to be a part of, Saint Anselm College.  I completed my undergrad degree in Criminal Justice and went on to coach for a living.  I would spend the next block of time gathering and classifying information and overcoming the obstacles of life. 2012/2013 would be big years.
