Chaplain (Major) Weimer, an Air Force chaplain and colleague of the then-Captain Gibbs at Scott Air Force Base, was first to recognize Etienne's unique manner of establishing accommodating rapport with his clients, and first to encourage him to maximize his potential. From this experience, Etienne took on the mission of helping others maximize their potential while it was from his training and experience as a clinical social worker that he decided to teach his clients and readers how to do so.
With his appetite whetted by co-authoring two anthologies, Etienne has become a frequent writer of how-to articles that have consistently motivated his readers to maximize their potential. Consequently, Etienne has been cited as "Featured Author" on several article directory sites across the Internet. His lectures, seminars, workshops, and customized training sessions are tailored to helping others maximize their potential.
Etienne is the proud co-author of two anthologies:
