“I don’t compare myself to other people,” said Hung. “If you keep believing in yourself, you can become unique, one of a kind and make the impact you are always looking for.”

Hung took a leap of faith and stood in line for hours to sing Ricky Martin’s “She Bangs,” his favorite song, in front of the American Idol judges for a chance to make it to Hollywood. Hung and the song soon became an internationally synonymous, catapulting the “singer” into stardom. Hung adapted and took the opportunity to perform in his personal style of singing around the world for large public and private events.

“Small business owners looking to take that extra step, take a risk, can learn from Hung,” said Brown. “Everybody should take this message to heart – if you’re going to fail, fail forward. Learn from it, move on and do something else that will take you to the level of success you are seeking.”
