Dr. Charles Petty.
Reared in the farming communities of England and Stuttgart, Arkansas, Dr. Petty not only knew President Clinton but was his rifle instructor at a Boy Scout camp!

Dr. Petty learned about the importance of family from the school of hard knocks. His parents divorced when he was six. His mother died three years later and he then lived in a blended family. When he was sixteen his father and younger brother were killed in a car accident. He lived by himself for a year and then became a foster child. He learned about family formally and was educated in Arkansas, Mississippi and Texas for 22 consecutive years - which means he is either well educated or a little slow!

Dr. Petty served for seven years as the senior staff member for the Governor of North Carolina. He is the founder and President of Family Success Unlimited, and since 1985, all he does is "eat and speak".




Scott Waddle, CMDR, USN, RET.
A native of Austin, Texas, Waddle graduated from the United States Naval Academy in May 1981 and the National Defense University in Washington D.C. in June 1998. Following graduation he was commissioned an Ensign and embarked on a twenty-year career in the submarine force where he served aboard Atlantic Fleet Trident Ballistic Missile boats Alabama and Kentucky and Pacific Fleet fast attacks San Francisco and Greeneville. He was handpicked from a highly competitive field of two hundred fifty officers to command the USS Greeneville, an improved Los Angeles class fast attack submarine. On the fateful day of February 9, 2001, Commander Waddle’s life was forever changed when he gave the order to perform an emergency surface maneuver that inadvertently caused the nine-thousand ton submarine to collide with the Ehime Maru, a 500 ton Japanese fishing vessel, killing nine people on board. Against the advice of his attorney and the Navy’s direction, he took responsibility for the accident. In October 2001 he was honorably discharged from the Navy and retired from active duty as a Commander.
