Additional Notes about Gary Norris:
Gary & his wife, Carolyn, know what it’s like to face challenges as entrepreneurs.
They have experienced both success and failure more than once, including a business partnership going south, laying off employees, closing the doors of a once successful endeavor, losing three homes to foreclosure and finding themselves over $200,000 in debt while refusing to declare bankruptcy.
As a result of their financial reset, their marriage hanging by a thread and their precious daughter trying to “check out” of life, they knew they had to “Get Their Rebel On” and create something different, and that’s just what they did!
Those were trying times, but against all odds, they rebuilt their family, their marriage, their business and their brand, “Rebel Entrepreneur”.
They have learned how to survive and then thrive.
Now they spend their time helping others do the same!
In addition to speaking at real estate investing and educational seminars, they speak to businesses, networking groups and schools on the power of proper mindset, motivation and of course, Rebel Entrepreneurship.)
