"Once I learned the hidden rules of behavior, my career started sailing."
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) June 1, 2010
Doug Wallace (http://www.dougwallace.net/) author of the award winning memoir, Everything Will Be All Right, knows what it is like to be poor. Born into an impoverished Tennessee family with eight children and an alcoholic father, he succeeded beyond his wildest dreams--retiring a multi-millionaire at the age of 50. Doug has advice for those who seek success in today's difficult economic crisis— behavior marks you, it becomes a label by which others judge you. Behavior can cause you to be isolated and rejected by mainstream society, or it can propel you to unbelievable success.
As a teen, he lived in the worst of conditions---crowded, violent government housing projects in Nashville, TN. His foundation, “S-KURVE,” (Saving Kids Underperforming by Reinforcing Values Everyday), is taking a new approach in the war on poverty. Says Wallace, "As it relates to poverty, the issue is, and has always been, about behavior. Wallace refers to behavior as “hidden rules” that vary according to the socio-economic status of the individual. As a survivor of generational poverty, he knows how reliant his success was upon learning the “hidden rules.” Wallace believes that his ability to grasp the importance of the behavioral rules of the various economic classes was absolutely critical to his success.” He readily admits that he could not have accomplished success without assistance from role models.
Doug Wallace was able to escape poverty and become one of the nation's most successful attorneya. His law firm, Wallace & deMayo, P.C., became the largest of its kind in the United States. Says Wallace, “It doesn’t matter how much money your parents have, or what schools you attend, or how bad your childhood may have been.” He adds, “Once you learn the hidden rules of behavior, your career will sail.” Wallace has listed the hidden rules of behavior on his website at the following link: lThe Hidden Rules of Class.
