One day,

without our permission,

we are thrust into this world naked and helpless.

 

From the day we’re born, life just happens to us for awhile until we become capable of making our own decisions. At that point there is a fork in the road… we can either choose to take control of our future, or continue to let life happen to us and take a back seat.

 

RAW GENIUS (past and present) is a person who has a vision, takes action and executes at the highest level. Life requires constant inspiration to stay on track. That’s our goal, highlight and inspire. These people are the best at what they do and deserve to be recognized for it.[/vc_column_text][vc_separator type=”small” position=”center” width_in_percentages=”yes” transparency=”1″ thickness=”2″ width=”60%” up=”50″ down=”50″ color=”#ffffff”][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_row_inner row_type=”row” type=”grid” text_align=”left” css_animation=””][vc_column_inner offset=”vc_hidden-lg vc_hidden-md vc_hidden-sm”][vc_column_text]
