“The first speaker I have encountered who is not only inspirational, but also gives extremely valuable information and resources. I have heard Rhett speak three times and have NEVER been disappointed and neither will you!”

 ~ Shellee Beatty, Human Resources Coordinator, Stillwater Medical Center

“I attended your Torchbearer program in Athens. Thank you so much for what you shared with us. I am a 22-year veteran teacher who had been considering throwing in the towel. I left your workshop with a new motivation and a new determination to fulfill my call as an educator!”
