Sharing his 30-year entrepreneurial journey, Dr. McKorley identified human resources as the most difficult aspect.

“If they tell you, you are wrong, listen to them but the only difference here is, it’s either you are making a big mistake or history, over my three decades in business, my biggest challenge has always been my human resource and not money,” Dr. McKorley said.
