Christian Brothers Automotive in Georgetown, Texas is now under new ownership - and the new franchisee's path to getting there is a hopeful one. From the time he was a teenager until he was in his mid-30s, Keith Guyton was knee-deep in crime, from using and selling drugs to burglary. A lifetime behind bars seemed inevitable.
However, Keith began feeling convicted, so he ended up flushing $50,000 worth of cocaine down the toilet, calling his supplier and said he was out despite the threat of violence or even death. Keith ended up paying his supplier back for every penny with honest, hard-earned money.
Today, after hard work and a long journey, Keith has completely turned his life around, become a family man and has been handed the keys to his very own business - a Christian Brothers Automotive shop.
"I haven’t told my story to a lot of people but that is my goal," he told The Advocate. "I asked Jonathan about it and he said to go for it. If people don’t accept me, forget ‘em! He inspires me and it is my hope to be an inspiration for all people because it’s never too late to turn around."
