Meet Jimmy LaRose NANOE Co-Founder & Champion

Ladies and gentlemen please meet Jimmy LaRose. Some of you may know the name Patrick Henry. Some of you are familiar with Crispus Attucks. Some of you may know, “give me liberty or give me death.” Perhaps, you know, Alexander Graham Bell, Thomas Edison or even the name Steve Jobs. These are men who fomented a revolution and changed the way we do things. At every one of these junctures, life was different for all mankind. We could not go back. Today we will meet and work with such a person who will change the way we do business forever. If you are the director of a non-profit organization, working too hard, working too long and not receiving enough compensation, if you are giving your best and hard to attract staff, well, today that ends. We break the mold and start the revolution and the man who’s been formulating this for over twenty five years, let’s welcome him now, Mr. Jimmy LaRose.
