From the Conference

Every venture in life begins with a dream.
Dreaming is free and available to everyone; however, the achievement is found only with those who pursue.
To pursue and achieve:
B – Believe – the word impossible is possible – read it as I’m possible. You can raise your hands a little higher always
B – Be Bold - obtain power through your quest for knowledge
B – Break the ceiling – stand out in order to be outstanding, for this brave new world is for the strong not the slothful
B – Bring up someone else (Help out) – mentors will help you up, sponsors with sell or refer you to others. You need both, you need to both
