NO QUIT ($45,000 – $50,000)

As we enter a new year … this story serves as inspiration for us all!

Adam Brown of Hot Springs, Arkansas was an A-student and star football player – with a bright future. That is, until he met a lady with a drug habit.
Adam had never dabbled in hard drugs … but after one hit of crack-cocaine – he was hooked.

His life spiraled quickly … and he began stealing to support his drug habit.
Shortly after that girlfriend left him, police found him in a crack house … laying in a pool of blood.

Facing 11 felony charges, he chose to enter a drug rehab to avoid jail time.
Adam eventually cleaned up his act and persuaded the Navy SEALs to give him a chance.

During a training accident, Adam lost his right eye … so he learned to shoot, using his left.

In Afghanistan, he suffered a freak accident resulting in his right hand being mangled – he learned to shoot with his left!

By age 33 … Adam suffered with arthritis, a bad back, a broken leg and surgery on both ankles – but he refused to quit.

In March 2010, while on special mission in Afghanistan – Adam was struck by enemy fire and died.

While his story ended tragically, Brown’s life is a testament to what can be accomplished by perseverance and hard work!

CRÈME DE LA CRÈME – (OTE: $135,000+)

The term, “crème de la crème” is borrowed from the French language, where it means, “cream of the cream”.
Metaphorically speaking … the term refers to “the best of the best”.

Interestingly enough, this expression is actually pretty uncommon in French!

It’s widely believed the term may have originally had additional appeal in English … due to the French language conjuring a sense of sophistication, taste and style!
