Cole, co-founder of energy conglomerate Sahara Group, explains that his success is greatly dependent upon his willingness to help people unleash their talents. With over 9 large companies all around the globe, Sahara has 680 employees. Cole explains that the same opportunity has been given to him starting from the bottom with nothing.
