“I can think of no single feat that was accomplished without a little help.  From the greatest minds in the world to the most successful corporations, no one can honestly claim they did it all alone.  It’s often said it takes “a village to raise a child.”  I believe that village is also necessary to contribute to any level of success in adulthood as well.  This world is simply too big a place to go it alone.” Harvey Mackay
