Dr. Charles Petty, a professional motivational speaker, was reared in the farming communities of England and Stuttgart, Arkansas.
He learned about family formally and was educated in Arkansas, Mississippi and Texas for 22 consecutive years - which means he is either well educated or a little slow! Dr. Petty has been a counselor, visiting professor, on the staffs of large corporations in Texas and North Carolina, and for seven years was on the senior staff of the North Carolina Governor. He is founder and President of Family Success Unlimited, and since 1985, all he does is "eat and speak".
Charles learned about the importance of family from the school of hard knocks. His parents divorced when he was six. His mother died three years later and he then lived in a blended family. When he was sixteen his father and younger brother were killed in a car accident. He lived by himself for a year and then became a foster child.
Dr. Petty is married and has two children,
six grandchildren and a grand dog!
