I started listening to Earl Nightingale in 2013 after watching The Secret. I have not let go and can’t believe that the time has passed by as he said. I started my company in 2017 and his words have benefited me tremendously. I am near the top of my field in 3 short years. I should be a Dr. by the Spring of 2020. I’ve treated every person that I met like the most important person in the world. I also understand that money is important but the things that money can’t buy are invaluable. He truly is the personal dean of development and I’m thankful for his contribution and being of service.
