A Message from the President
K.N.O.W. LLC is the brain child of business entrepreneur Monica Morton. At the age of 9, I was in a playground and a basketball rolled up to me while I was on a jungle gym. I handed the ball back to the unknown young man. He then jumped on my brand new Schwinn bicycle and rode off ! I knew my parents were going to be furious, since it was a new bicycle. When I arrived home, I told my mother what happened and asked her to take me to the library, she looked at me quizzically and I explained, I needed to look at local year books.
At the library, I located a yearbook photo of the boy that stole my bicycle .My mother and I left and went to the police department and told them what happened and provided a photograph of the young man that stole my bicycle . The police located the boy and we took him to court and the judge made his parents buy me a new bicycle
That adolescent incident ,catapulted me towards a law enforcement career and college. Feeling a desire to do more, led to me obtaining a private detective license. I interned at one of the top detective agencies in the South , that was owned by an ex CIA agent. He took me under his wing and taught me to be the best .I then developed a reputation for being one of the best private detectives in the southeast !!
Several years later, in 1995 I left and started my own detective and security agency and began to work with numerous high profile celebrities and athletes. Trusted and respected by my clients and colleagues. I was blessed to be requested to investigate numerous high profile cases involving high profile professional athletes . In doing so, in recent years I began to see a troubling pattern with many of these athletes. Mainly that they didn’t have an accountability support system around them to assist regarding their financial, personal and business choices .
This lack was ultimately leading to horrible off field and off court personal and business choices that were leaving many in financial ruin and disgraced. Seeing these patterns repeatedly, lead to the desire for me to launch a firm that can provide the tools needed for a high school, collegiate or professional athlete to become a well rounded, grounded and successful individual.
Im a firm believer in being proactive and not reactive and in doing so, you can provide a solid foundation for success, providing the tools needed to make intelligent decisions. This will aid in providing success in every area in life.
Since my youth, I have always had a gift and passion for helping others to lead their best life. Leadership comes by example. I hope to inspire, motivate and encourage my clients to do and be their best.
When I graduated from high school, my favorite teacher Ms. Claudia Parks, gave me a book titled “ I DARE YOU “….. I was the only student that she gave that book to. In the inscription, she told me that she had been given that book and she was daring me to go out into the world and do great things….Its my hearts desire to use my god given gifts and talents to make a difference in the world. When you K.N.O.W. better, you do better !
…I dare you to achieve something that will make the future point to you with even more pride than the present is pointing to those who have gone before you …
