At T-minus 5 seconds, the U.S. Space Shuttle is firing with all three main engines at full throttle, and yet it can’t leave the launch pad. Why? Because eight relatively tiny bolts hold it back. All of that energy and all of that potential, yet it can’t go anywhere. Then, at T-minus 0, explosive charges go off in those bolts so they blow apart--no longer able to hold the space shuttle back from achieving its potential.
The same thing happens to many of us. We have tremendous energy and endless potential, and yet something seems to hold us back from achieving our full potential--maybe from even getting off the launch pad! What are those bolts that hold us back? What is the energy that can shatter them so they can hold us back no longer?
In this month's program, our speaker will share his wisdom and lessons learned in overcoming the challenges that hold us back. Join us for our June Business Connections program with speaker, Terry Fossum, co-winner of the 2017 Fox reality series, 'Kicking & Screaming.'
About our Speaker:
Terry L. Fossum was born in the poorest city in the U.S.--McAllen, Texas--surrounded by gangs and drugs. In junior high, he found himself staring down the barrel of an assault rifle one night in his own back alley. In high school, his father was killed. Before Terry’s father died, one of their neighbors came up to him and said, “I just want to make sure you understand something: Not a single one of your boys will ever grow up to be anything.”
Terry overcame great obstacles to earn his degree in Mechanical Engineering and become an Officer in the United States Air Force, where he was the Executive Officer for an entire group of Nuclear B-52 Aircraft and Officer of the Year at Fairchild Air Force Base. He then started a direct sales company, where he set up teams around the globe and became a multimillion dollar earner. Today, Terry is an internationally-renowned businessman, adventurer, philanthropist, author, and keynote speaker, and recent winner of Season 1 of Fox’s new survival reality show, 'Kicking and Screaming.'
Terry is most proud of being a loving husband and dad to three young gentlemen.
