Carlos Part 2
On fire and ready to take the technology world by storm, Carlos fulfilled the inconceivable by passing a series of seven tests and attaining his certification as a Microsoft Certified System Engineer (MCSE) in less than 3-months. In addition, he also obtained certifications as a Certified Cisco Network Professional (CCNP), and Oracle Certified Associate (OCA). Self taught and self-driven, Carlos' speedy strides blazed new trails at BellSouth as a System Engineer Contractor, heightening his annual salary to over $80,000.
Still eager to learn and focused on the philosophy that no dream is unattainable, Mr. Spry credits two books, Rich Dad Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki and Maximize the Moment by T.D. Jakes as being the catalysts to his transformed way of thinking. Upon purchasing his first home at the age of 28, the interest of real estate sparked Carlos to derive a plan to educate and empower others about home ownership and investment.
Never afraid to step into a new dimension, Carlos concluded his tenure with corporate America and blazed into the world of self-employment. Within his first month, Carlos owned over 5 properties and earned nearly $100,000.00. Since then he has established Spry Holdings, LLC; is the visionary for Fresh Start Housing Project, an initiative designed to assist low to moderate-income families with the dream of home ownership.
Always focused on giving back to the community, Carlos created a non-profit organization, Trinity Achievement Community Center (TACC).
The secret to true success was tantalizingly clear to Carlos Spry. Always focused on attaining his true purpose in life was never defeated by what he describes as "temporary stages". Those stages of struggle and hardship increased his level of tenacity and humility; for true success comes from a purpose, and for Carlos, that purpose is continually fulfilled each and every day.

Fueled by his passion to succeed, Carlos soon became discontented with this rate of progression. After observing the "work smarter" mentality and salary of the computer technicians in his office; he decided to penetrate the ever-growing computer industry. With little to no computer wherewithal, this stint birthed his completion of a Visual Basics class in Technical Writing thus forging his entrance into the computer world.
