“Every (5) years I meet someone who has an unbelievable effect on my vision and productivity. Terry has been that person for me in the last year. One conversation with Terry is worth 20 conversations and in the past has caused me to redirect my focus and energy. Calling Terry resourceful is an understatement. Terry (like myself) is a resource hub. I have never been able to talk to the man without a pen and pad in my hand. In fact one conversation with him caused me to pull my car over to the side of the expressway. So that I wouldn't miss the value of the information he was sharing with me!
