Dr. Charles Petty, a professional motivational speaker, was reared in the farming communities of England and Stuttgart, Arkansas. As a native of Arkansas he does indeed know President Clinton. In fact, when President Clinton was eleven or twelve years old, Dr. Petty was his rifle instructor at a Boy Scout camp! This is the man who taught the President to shoot straight!

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.

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".

Dr. Petty is married and has two grown children, four grandchildren and a grand dog!
