​​​​​​​Pete has accomplished several things professionally but his personal life was a complete disaster. The kid who grew up on the wrong side of the tracks in a small city called Florence Alabama has not always been a positive person. He spent years of promiscuous living experimenting with alcohol, drugs, and sex after he dropped out of school. Growing up in school he couldn’t read so he struggled tremendously until a teacher name Ms. Stockard gave him some life changing advice. She introduced him to someone who would help him and she gave him a method to helphim overcome his weaknesses in school. Today he is still benefiting from that teacher’s advice that he said he could never repay her for.

​​​​​​​His purpose and passion today is sharing his story and strategies to help others. He believes that everyone has something special, but sometime people just need others to help them discover it. He said he wanted to be a Ms. Stockard to someone else in need because he believes that “Someone’s Destiny is connected to our Assignment.”
