In 1989, Gabriel Bristol was a homeless 19 year old on the streets of Lansing, Michigan. Mr. Bristol wasn’t just a kid that ran away from home. His education in the school of hard knocks began at age 5 when he taken away from his birth mother. His earliest memory of her was when she was being booked at the police station for prostitution and heroin charges.

Picked on in school for being gay.  Raised in the foster care system.

Now he is the CEO of Intelicare Direct, a call center with over 300 employees. Of course it didn’t happen overnight.  He worked.  He failed.  He suffered.  He succeeded.  Read the rest of his inspirational story here.
