It has been far too long since my last blog…FAR TOO LONG.  The good thing is that I have been busy with the company as well as the 2014 Annual Summit in Orlando, Florida.  The other good thing is that I have topics stacked up on deck to continue contributing worthwhile information to the UPLIFT …

A Summit attendees perspective

I wanted to repost this from last year’s Summit in Atlanta, Georgia. Josh Lee is an example of hard work, mentoring and professionalism. Since his attendance at the Summit he has landed a FULL TIME job in the industry. The video footage is raw, unedited and unscripted. Are you registered yet?

Are you ready? Are you registered?

Time is running out for you to register.  Topics have been selected and as usual they will address current issues in the industry and address issues of each attendee.  That’s why the Summit is different than any other.  We listen and watch what you are dealing with as a provider and specialist and give you …

The dreamworld of the average CCW carrier


This week on November 13, 2013 I posted the blog, “My contract vs, Your right” to spawn the specialists of the CRAFT to think and the service providers to implement procedures on “armed and unarmed” contracts. Once again I want to share something that was shared with me as an eye opener for the vast …
