Email from PATRICK YOUNG, President of Vision Group, Inc. - September, 2013
“I am glad you have put all four of your books in Kindle format. I have read all of your books because I thought they could benefit me and others in many areas. I plan to gift the Kindle versions to many people going forward. Amazon makes that really easy because I can purchase the book from Amazon over the internet, and they will then send the people I gift them to the download link to their Kindle by email. The Kindle format will increase the likelihood of them reading since it will have the ‘cool’ factor of being read on an IPad or Kindle.
I often use June and you as examples of how to be both good business, Christian, & community leaders. I often cite the passage in ‘THE SYNERGISTIC LIFE STYLE’ when June & you decided at an early age to strive to set higher standards in your life and be in the top 5% in all areas of life and parenting. That book is a classic and should be mandatory reading for every college graduate starting out in life.
It was refreshing to hear someone who has the same viewpoint that I do in ‘THE GREAT COMMISSION’.
As a former Big 4 accountant myself, I have a special appreciation for ‘SYNERGISTIC MANAGEMENT CONTROL SYSTEMS’ and have worked to implement many of your suggestions throughout the Vision Group companies and clients.
I was also thankful for your book, ‘HYPERFOCUS’ because it will provide the parents of children who struggle in school because of ADHD the ability to Coach, Encourage, and Motivate their children.
It was also great to see that we both share the same philosophy of giving back with your ‘Travis Foundation’, who you give 100% of your book proceeds to, and Vision Group’s ‘Force for Good Fund’. When I started the company almost 2 decades ago, I wanted to dedicate 5% of the profits to helping children, spreading positive Christianity and traditional conservative values, and fighting childhood hunger”.

PATRICK YOUNG, CPA - 7/26/2010 - Hi Ronald!, I read The Synergistic Life Style and it brought back great memories of the wisdom June and you taught us in high school Sunday School. I am looking forward to reading Synergistic Management Control Systems and implementing its wisdom into my company. I plan on purchasing Hyperfocus as well. I think it is terrific that you are passing on your vast knowledge and experience through these books. Please tell the beautiful Ms. June hello and let me know if I can do anything for you or The Travis Foundation.
HOLLY ESKEW FRYER - 12/29/2010 - Ron, you and June are great role models. I wish everyone I know or come in contact with had such fantastic and positive attitudes as you guys do. I have said for many years and still say today that "happiness" is a choice. It doesn't just fall into yout lap, Life and relationships are hard work. Some of my fondest memories have been made with you and June.
JEFF BROOKS - 2/19/2011 - Happy 72 Birthday Ron. You have always been one of my favorite people. Your Sunday School lessons that you taught while I was in the 10th grade in 1970 had a major impact on me. It was a mixture of Christian teaching, goals to set for your life, and the balance of both. Those were great days.

JAMES CAMP - 2/20/2012 - " I just wanted you to know that, next to my Mom and Dad, you and Mrs. Travis had a major impact in my life when I was growing up. From all of the Sunday School lessons to just watching the love that you two share for each other and the Lord. You truly made a difference in my life. I love the Travis Family."
