Quest of the Keys was born out of Scotty’s purpose to encourage and empower others to live, lead and finish well. He originally developed a training course called Eight Keys to Success.

I’ve met so many people who are now great friends of mine who have mentored me and helped me grow as a person and as an artist. I couldn’t have gotten far without their humbleness and kindness. That is why I try to help out other photographers who are starting out with whatever I can because I had people there for me when I needed help. Read more>>

Nick Spurrier

My love for the piano never went out though. When I was a freshmen in high school, my best friend, Nick Goodrich, and I started a band. I was originally our bassist, but after a year or so, we decided to take advantage of my limited piano skills, and that helped relight the fire for the instrument. By junior year, I had decided that was where my real musical passion lay. Read more>>

I knew I had to do something, and so I decided to start an organization that would provide homes for rescued kids. On 11/11/11, we rescued 20 girls in the Philippines and starting our first restoration home for child victims of slavery. Now, seven years later, we have rescued over 400 kids. Over 100 kids are living in our seven homes around the world, in the Philippines, Thailand, Mexico, and the USA — here in DFW. Read more>>

My VIRTUE notoriety and unique passion to see women flourish in all aspects of their lives caused me to become a frequently invited public speaker in large Christian women’s conferences.

Having your own shop and the responsibilities that come with them are no easy feat. But, I told myself we have to start somewhere and take one step at a time. So last year, my husband and I began our online flower shop, plumfloraltx.com. It’s a love project of our family. My kids are so supportive; they help me by doing the other tasks: taking photos of flowers, sharing their ideas even constructive criticism. Read more>>

I’ve always known that I wanted to be in the health and wellness field.
