After 30 years in business I have discovered through travel and networking that change begins with a grassroots level of action. After visiting over 50 countries and working with the locals, I realize we all have dreams and that some of those dreams are easier to achieve just by being in the right place at the right time. Through global communication, economies and transit we are now able to help globally.
