“Gene is a big part of my success in my business and life. Gene challenged me to define a niche and once I did, I have never looked back. I have been able to become an authority in my industry, generate more revenue than ever before, and even get paid to speak internationally. I owe Gene a lot when it comes to picking a niche, which is the foundation of any business in the beginning.”
