He was, in his own words, an "intense goal-setter" from the
third grade. And Hank McLarty achieved most of what he set his mind
to a football scholarship to Auburn, a financial services career at
prestigious firms, recognition and wealth as one of the youngest
and best in his industry. But when he started to "drink the Hank
Kool-Aid" and believe he was as fabulous as the press coverage he
earned said he was, his world collapsed. Living in a hotel with his
two boys for two years, needing its free breakfasts to make ends
meet, he slowly began to recast his vision -- away from success and
toward significance. Today, he says he's blessed to have found both
through Gratus Capital, the firm he founded on the principles of
gratitude and humility.
