“A MAN BECOMES WHAT HE DREAMS AND I DREAMED OF BECOMING AN AUTHOR”
I got to be very honest here. I have been very lucky to have met people like these at such a young age and get inspired. I cant even say, I am qualified to take an Interview of awesome personalities like these, but they never say NO. They are ever helpful and always motivating. Interview with Lorraine Carey and now this.
Ron Hanlon is such a magnanimous personality and a very humble man. I find myself honored to have had the honor to even talk to him, let alone ask questions and get them answered.
Conducted in two phases, he was helpful and very much interested. Giving me insights into his real life and professional life, Ron Hanlon is one of my favorite.
