Albert Black and his people are living The American Dream.

There is greatness within us all.

Dallas: This is the story of Albert Black, his family and and his company, On Target Supplies & Logistics.  It is also a story about miracles. Here people are transformed; they learn about financial statements, become economically independent of debt, start serious savings, capture the power of principal-and-interest, and discover their deep-seated talents and gifts.  
 
That's enough, but there's more.
 
You'll hear some of the most innovative human resource strategies from one of the most articulate people we know. And, you won't believe his results! This hard-nosed, well-grounded visionary lives, breathes, and acts on his two most basic faith statements, then asks for 100% and gives 125%. 
 
Great business owners understand that people can't be shoved into cubicles and forgotten. People's lives can't be cut into work and personal with the owner ignoring the personal part. Get to know this true leader who sees his role, not as a CEO but as a coach, mentor, teacher, guide, and even a parent (that they never had) to his people.

Albert worked a second job for ten years before he was able to go full-time with his office supply business. On weekends he went to school to get an MBA. Within ten years he had over forty employees and major companies as clients. Within twenty years, he had over 100 employees and is a major supplier and a corporate leader in the Dallas-Fort Worth community.

Albert is constantly retooling his business; the focus is on being a logistics company. Through continuous improvement their just-in-time deliveries to specific supply rooms within large corporations minimize inventories.
 
His wife, Gwyneith, is his partner in all he does and she deserves special recognition for all her day-to-day contributions and patient support of this well-grounded visionary.
 
Albert is a servant to his church and faith, his family, his employees, his community and his country.
