Guest Bio

I realized that leading people based on the vision of someone else, whom I had never actually met, made me miserable. I craved freedom. The freedom to create my own vision and to lead people to a better life through that vision. To do that, I needed to start my own venture. That venture is beginning with Frontier South Knives.
