Forrest just has that x-factor everyone tries so hard to achieve and few have naturally. Working with Forrest in his role as a SCORE Business Mentor has been an incredible learning experience for everyone he meets. What an incredible gift to have such a successful entrepreneur so dedicated to giving back and paying it forward.

#ProudDad: My daughter Sydney Tuff was recognized in Kernersville News for her acting and advocacy.

I've had great examples in my life and made my fair share of mistakes, which have given me a broader perspective on life. The most influential person in my life has been my father Ulysses Tuff. His life has been dedicated to his family, church and global missions work.

After the sudden loss of my brother to a heart attack, I became an Ambassador for the American Heart Association to bring awareness to heart disease. I annually participate in the AHA Heart Walk in his memory. My WHY is to "Be the Change" and  positively impact lives.
