David Bell Speaks with Gary Dumas of The Dumas Company

What if the very thing you seek in life is what you are called to give to others? On February 22nd, host David Bell speaks with Gary Dumas.  Gary Dumas is an author, educator and personal development coach helping men and women find and grow into the absolute best version of themselves. When Gary started providing substance use and anger management programs for criminal courts in Kansas City, he quickly saw the need for something more. Rather than teaching his clients to “just say no,” Gary understood the power in teaching his clients to “just say yes” to the absolute best version of themselves. Join us as we talk with Gary about how his own experiences helped him to develop a non-traditional approach to assist others in reaching their potential.
