Kevin McCarthy started out selling candy on the school bus.  Now, decades later, with his own research and lots of learning from others, he has created a very succinct way to live our lives. His passion is for people to live all parts of their lives on-purpose.  We have that choice and Kevin tells us how to bring that to fruition.
