"I believe God gives each of us a certain basket of gifts," says Gary Adams, "and you're blessed if you can figure out what yours are and how to use them. I've been blessed with the ability to market and make money." And Adams didn't stop with his own businesses. After struggling to help his own kids learn how to learn, he turned his entrepreneurial resourcefulness to working with his learning challenges and created the Dreams Are Free Institute, a national educational program for special-needs kids.
