While his success as an entrepreneur, leader, and motivational speaker has led him to be featured in several magazines, international speaking engagements, and blessed with many awards, Tony remains humble. He is quick to share that none of the success and accolades are a result of him or anything he has done, but everything is a direct result of God’s goodness, positive vibes, and his team.
