For David E. White, his study of resilience is not out of curiosity or peripheral interest, rather more like a wilderness hiker searches for the next water source while holding an empty canteen. Dave was orphaned at an early age, married at eighteen and threw himself into a vocational life with a drive to prove his value. This drive led to several successful start-ups, exponential sales growth and miraculous turnarounds; and ultimately, burnout. David E. White holds a Master of Arts degree in Interdisciplinary Studies, is a columnist in Sask Business Magazine and is currently COO of Legacy Group of Companies.
