    Seize the Opportunity Others Do Not See - Kent Sohosky

    The journey to greatness is a daunting feat. With courage and conviction, we must seize the opportunity others do not see to get to where we want to be. Jerome interviews Kent Sohosky, who owns a number of businesses. Kent has a unique story, as his father was in the military and his mother was a school teacher. Kent grew up in Joplin, Missouri, which is a small town that was hit hard by the tornado a few years ago. He reflects on how his background and experience have helped him in other aspects of his career, and he emphasizes the importance of giving back to others. He shares his view that a job can be taken away at any time, and that security is only a temporary thing.

    Giving the Injured Justice - Brian Glass

    Giving the Injured Justice - Brian Glass

    When accidents happen, the first thing to do is to ensure to seek appropriate medical help first. When there needs to be an investigation to give some explanation and justice to the incident, that is when having a personal injury lawyer will help tremendously. Brian Glass talks about the dangers of not knowing enough and the ins and outs of this law practice.
    Brian Glass is a personal injury lawyer in Fairfax, Virginia. His practice is limited to the representation of injured people against insurance companies and the people who hurt them. He recognizes that insurance companies have endless sums of money to throw at the defense of these cases and he enjoys the David vs. Goliath challenge. Brian grew up in Fairfax where he still lives with his wife and three sons. He attended Robinson Secondary School and James Madison University. After college, he attended law school at the College of William & Mary, where he was named a Benjamin Rush Scholar for excellence in Health Law & Policy. Brian loves pushing himself to see how far he can run. From chasing the runners from high to low points and back again, he enjoys testing the limits of what is possible for himself. He has completed dozens of marathons, 50 milers, and 24-hour footraces (think - just how many times can you run that loop in a day?). His proudest running moment is finishing the Umstead 100-mile race in a time of 23 hours, 18 minutes, and 25 seconds. Afterward, he immediately fell asleep.
