"Mentor: the Kid & the CEO seems to be just what my nephew needed. It motivated him to get into a program, get a positive mentor and he is making the changes necessary to become successful. As a college professor I am anxious to refer the book to students and use the material in the classroom. Mentoring may be the most important component missing in higher education today!"
~J. David Chapman, University of Central Oklahoma; CEO, Realty1
