Sam talks about the love of playing the game with heart and soul. Working as a team player is very essential in every aspect of life. Team is spelled with an 'e' not an 'i'. Being an All American and World Champion are great honors, but carry an obligation to community, youth, family and giving back to the people who helped you along the way.

"The one who climbs the highest ladder gets the biggest prize," Get that 'Burning in your Belly' attitude and go to work to maximize your talents and opportunities in the greatest country on planet earth, USA.

You will leave this seminar or meeting with a sense of urgency that our free enterprise system has no bounds or boundaries. Your wildest dreams are possible in America and you are only limited by your near-sightedness. "The world is my vineyard and there is fruit for all".
