In the fall of 1972 I met Sam Moore an immigrant from Lebanon.  He was the President of Royal Publishers which later became Thomas Nelson, Inc. the largest publisher of Bibles in the world.  Sam was brilliant and commited to his Christian faith. He recruited me into his student division to sell bibles door to door in North Carolina.  I sold bibles, recruited college students to sell bibles and was one of the top Jr. Executive sales people in the company.  I had no interest in becoming a salesman or even learning the skills on how to sell.  But, I wanted to marry my childhood sweetheart.  I needed money to do this and the money I could earn from the salel of bibles could make this possible.  I married my high school sweetheart, paid my way through college, bought two new cars and paid all the household expensives from the money I earned from the sale of bibles.

When I graduated from college, I was offered a sales managers position with a large corporation.  I did not accept the position.  Instead I kept my committment that I made with God when I was 8 years old. I entered the ministry and began pastoring two rural churches in Marion County, Kentucky for an annual salary of $2,500.00.  I attended the Louisville Presbyterian Theological Seminary and received the Master of Divinity Degree in 1980.  I was ordained an Elder in the Conference of Ministers in 1977 and retired after 22 years of service to twelve different chuches in the Louisville area.

After retiring from the ministry I built one of the largest weight loss companies using a program I developed during my spare time when I was a minister.  Most of our clients were referred by physicians.  Several thousand clients participated in this individual program.  It was also taught to many employees and executives at major corporations in Louisville, KY.

Later I developed dietary supplements that could benefit my clients.  I developed a diet weight loss system which included a dietary supplement that assisted the body in losing weight.  This became a huge success and millions of capsules were sold along with the weight loss system.

After being retired for several years I decided to do something I always wanted to do.  My daughter and I started Hikes Point News.

I began my professional life as a salesman and it would seem to some that I will end my life as a salesman.  But, I have never seen it that way.  I consider myself a minister and a businessman who has learned how to use the skill of selling to advance my goals as a minister and also my goals for each of my businesses.  I have always enjoyed success as a minister and as a businessman.

ASCENSION is the newest and most amazing product I have ever developed.  With the help of a team of committed people, we plan to sell one million bottles of ASCENSION in the next five years.  I also hope to help hundreds of people create the income they need to provide a better living for themselves and their families.
