No matter what the business is, it will not be successful without the entrepreneur’s love and desire behind the practice and that right there is exactly what Carly Grace is about.

When I was initially invited to the event, I was thinking it would probably be Mr. Smith at a podium in one of SMU’s auditoriums. To my (and his) surprise, the school was hosting an honorary luncheon in his name with over 300 attendees!
