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!

What does this have to do with Match and Fable’s latest role?

SUPER GENIUS – (OTE: $70,000 – $80,000)

William James Sidis was born April 1, 1898 in Boston, Massachusetts.
And, while he happened to be born on April Fool’s Day … he was anything but!

By age 2 … he was thumbing through the New York Times, reading articles that caught his eye.
By age 6, he spoke 7 languages; English, Latin, French, German, Russian, Turkish & Armenian.
At 9 years old, he qualified for Harvard … (but decided to wait until he was eleven to attend).

He was considered a super-genius, with an IQ estimated to be 250 to 300 (that’s higher than what Albert Einstein scored).
