Meet the Staff
From the outset, an essential strategy to ensure a strong, responsive foundation has been the assembly of individuals with both corporate and philanthropic expertise combined with a passion for youth. The SUCCESS Foundation staff represents the ideal blend of career and personal experiences. Each is talented in a variety of private and public endeavors, including business development and management, education, journalism, 501(c)(3) non-profit participation and so much more.
John brings to the SUCCESS Foundation both a passion for and understanding of the principles of personal development and a commitment to demonstrating the importance of the education for youth. John's experience includes 40 years as an entrepreneur, consultant, author and speaker. He has served on the boards of Greater Dallas chapter of the Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship (NFTE) , the Direct Selling Education Foundation (DSEF) and the Direct Selling Association. In 1997, the DSEF recognized his contributions with its highest honor, the Circle of Honor Award.
