In this space, transformation is essential. 

Just ask YM Inc.

When high school was out, John Cronin looked to the future. He found no clarity staring back. 

John is one of about 250,000 Americans with Down syndrome, but he wished to enter business with his dad after graduation. 

It's a great story — John's Crazy Socks, founded in 2016, has been featured all over the news and web, from Fox to the BBC.
