Forrest believes in giving back, which he accredits to his upbringing. The most influential people in his life have been his parents. They have been married for 50 years and dedicated to their family, church, and missions work. However, Forrest has also experienced tragedies that helped broaden his perspective on life. He is a survivor of gun violence and in 2011 lost his younger brother to a heart attack. He later became an Ambassador for the American Heart Association, volunteering to bring awareness to heart disease. He annually participates in the AHA Heart Walk in his memory and states that his WHY is to "Be the Change" and positively impact lives.
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.
