"I was a student without a purpose.  I roamed the halls, I had low expectations for myself, and I had poor grades.  My mediocre performance was not indicative of my intelligence, but I needed someone to see the potential in me that I could not see.  I needed a Purpose Pusher to help me understand my value and my purpose."

-JT Taylor CEO of Purpose Pushers LLC.
