Alexander Solzhenitsyn, George Mueller, Thomas Sowell, Dietrich Bonhoeffer and William Wilberforce are a few of my personal heroes.

What have you learned from a mentor a writer that has been the most helpful?
Through the work of Harold Bullock, I have learned that all people do what makes sense to them and they do so based on their values and perspective. Decisions are made based on what is most important to the person and the strategy for obtaining the goal is formed from the perspective, or worldview, of the person. Through the application of biblical wisdom to decision making in business, life, ministry, Harold Bullock has written and taught extensively on decision making for success.
