Quotes
The brilliant business and life philosopher Jim Rohn was once asked how he achieved his vast success and worldwide following? Jim, knowing that reading is the key to learning stated: "Miss a meal if you must, but never miss a book."

It is obvious that Jim Rohn never had one of his business conferences catered by Chef Michael Dicks.

Last night's culinary experience was better than a good book.

Beyond Remarkable!"
