“The average American watches over 30 hours of TV per week. I use that time to build experience.”

“I built this site to inspire, educate, and promote an idea, personified by my experience, that people should never settle for what’s easy, but always strive to make positive change in themselves and the world. I distilled my background what I’ve learned so you can skip a few steps towards achieving your business goals.” David T. Durant
