Bullying Is An Epidemic – Here’s How You Can Make A Difference

HOW MANY OF YOU HAVE WATCHED THIS VIDEO? Bullying happens EVERY day. In EVERY school and in THOUSANDS of households, public places and most of all – online. Kids are KILLING themselves because they feel so isolated and alone. (Need me to make it more real for you? How about this statistic: Each day in our nation, there are an average of over 3,470 attempts by young people grades 9-12.

Then he called me back and said he forgot he was hosting a charity golf tournament that day so he wouldn’t be able to meet me. Bummer. But I didn’t let that stop me. I was bound and determined to make it to the holy grail of all things tie dyed and groovy! CLICK HERE TO SEE THE VIDEO When I showed up, Rick’s wife Sue welcomed me with open arms. I honestly didn’t expect any less – I knew if she is married to Rick, she is “good people”. Rick has been a great friend of mine for a few years now and I think the world of him. Not only is he an amazing business role model and friend, but he is just a really good person and I admire that. Sue led me around the crazy maze of Strokers before I ventured off on my own to give all of you a behind the scenes tour of the Strokers compound. Along the way I ran into Gary who decided to show us around the rest of the way. He told me a lot of stories and explained about what we were...
