We are here to make a difference - to help another person up - to help them become more, do more, contribute more. Dream Connections helps couples connect and those relationships help each other accomplish their missions in life. Abundance International is a direct means for teaching micro-entrepreneurship so people in developing nations have the tools and resources to create abundance for themselves, their families, and their communities. I had worked at Paramount Pictures Studio lot and may return one day to make films that make an impact. In addition to these endeavors, I am creating my legacy in my family and I extend that further through the books I write. How can we help each other?
