Elected U.S. vice president in 1920 and president in 1923, Calvin Coolidge, known as “Silent Cal” in his time was not so silent when it came to hard work yielding results, “Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan Press On! has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.” It’s true; Hard work beats talent when talent refuses to work, and Jeffry Schneider, founder of a small, private, Austin-based company, knows all about hard work. He’s happy to use his time and resources to help others and contribute to his community.
