Curtis is already a great entrepreneur, as the founder and president of Forbes Music Company he knows what it requires to take an idea and w ... ork until that idea is a business. He knows how to build something from the ground up.

Curtis is a man of his word. He is an intelligent and methodical businessman who isn't afraid of risk. I've watched him grow Forbes Music C ... ompany from it's inception. He approached the start-up with a tenacious appetite for success blended well with building a meaningful business that is profitable but with a very human purpose. He has excellent management and organizational skills and I could not think of a more worthy candidate to endorse!
