1.    Services. Advisor agrees to act as a mentor or advisor to the Company and provide advice and assistance to the Company from time to time as further described on Schedule A attached hereto or as otherwise mutually agreed to by the parties (collectively, the "Services").

2.    Compensation. Advisor shall not be entitled to receive cash compensation; however, Advisor shall be entitled to receive the equity compensation indicated on the signature page hereto at an exercise or purchase price equal to the fair market value of the Company's Common Stock, which will be documented in the applicable Stock Option Agreement or Restricted Stock Purchase Agreement to be entered into by Advisor and the Company. The Company will seek written approval or have a meeting of the Board of Directors to authorize the Advisor compensation and deliver definitive stock purchase or option agreements regarding the stock compensation within 90 days from the date of this Agreement. If the Company fails to provide the foregoing documentation within such 90-day period, then the Advisor shall have right to contact directors of the Company and to the extent the Advisor needs to take action to enforce this Agreement, then the Company agrees to pay all Advisor's reasonable expenses in connection therewith.

3.    Expenses. The Company shall reimburse Advisor for reasonable travel and related expenses incurred in the course of performing services hereunder, provided, however, that any expenses shall be approved by the Advisor emailing a request including the nature of the expense and a maximum amount to the company for approval.

4.    Term and Termination. The term of this Agreement shall continue until terminated by either party for any reason upon five (5) days prior written notice without further obligation or liability.

5.    Independent Contractor. Advisor's relationship with the Company will be that of an independent contractor and not that of an employee. Advisor will not be eligible for any employee benefits, nor will the Company make deductions from payments made to Advisor for employment or income taxes, all of which will be Advisor's responsibility. Advisor will have no authority to enter into contracts that bind the Company or create obligations on the part of the Company without the prior written authorization of the Company.

6.    No Rights Granted. Nothing in this Agreement shall be construed as granting any rights under any patent, copyright or other intellectual property right of the Company, nor shall this Agreement grant Advisor any rights in or to the Company's Confidential Information, except the limited right to use the Confidential Information in connection with the Services.

7.    No Conflicts. Advisor represents that Advisor's compliance with the terms of this Agreement and provision of Services hereunder will not violate any duty which Advisor may have to any other person or entity (such as a present or former employer), and Advisor agrees that Advisor will not do anything in the performance of Services hereunder that would violate any such duty. In addition, Advisor agrees that, during the term of this Agreement, Advisor shall promptly notify the Company in writing of any direct competitor of the Company which Advisor is also performing services. It is understood that in such event, the Company will review whether Advisor's activities are consistent with Advisor remaining as an advisor of the Company.

8.    Miscellaneous. Any term of this Agreement may be amended or waived only with the written consent of the parties. So long as you continue to serve as an advisor to the Company, you hereby consent to the Company including your name on its marketing materials, Web site or private placement memo, or offering materials as an advisor of the Company. This Agreement, including any schedules hereto, constitute the sole agreement of the parties and supersedes all oral negotiations and prior writings with respect to the subject matter hereof. The validity, interpretation, construction and performance of this Agreement shall be governed by the laws of the State of Texas, without giving effect to the principles of conflict of laws. This Agreement may be executed in counterparts, each of which shall be deemed an original, but all of which together will constitute one and the same instrument.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, each Party hereto has executed this Services Agreement, or caused this Services Agreement to be executed on its behalf by its duly authorized officers, as of the date  12/31/2013
