“…the only speaker at our conference to receive a standing ovation…”

–JEREMY SEIDMAN, CHAIR, MIT

JeVon “JT” McCormick is no ordinary businessman.

And he’s had no ordinary life. Raised in the worst part of Dayton, Ohio, he spent his childhood bouncing from home to home, in and out of juvenile detention centers, and was even homeless for a time. He was neglected, starved, and sexually abused as a child.

How did he get out?

How did he come from worse than nothing, to having it all?

And most importantly, what lessons can we all take from his journey?
