No More Interviews LLC co-founders, Kevin Stephenson, and Corey Hackett-Greene aspired and created a platform that could inspire, educate and support dreamers in an untapped segment of our current populous. With being of the minority entrepreneur status, we desire to reach entrepreneurs, business owners, travelers and others who are struggling to follow their passion, because of a lack of understanding, positive affirmation or knowledge of the possibilities available. False Evidence Appearing Real is the acronym for the societal term known as Fear. As stated, it is not real and is a deterrent that we have to battle constantly in order to succeed. We receive negativity and fear shots from all forms of media but most importantly from those that love us the most. Personal experiences, as well as folklore passed down through the ages, have influenced our way of thinking. Our collaboration is a part of the initial steps we are taking to dispel the myth and rumors pertaining to achieve better, forward thinking and overall success based on sound principles, faith, determination, and cohesion. The “It’s Possible” message exudes from our beings, teachings and impending paths of undenied success.
