I do this work because… everyday presents a different challenge and an opportunity to learn something new.
Most overlooked skill in business is… listening. A lot of people have interesting things to say…you can learn a thing or two by taking the time to hear them out.
I believe that the future is… ours to shape into something amazing for generations to come.
Something that keeps me up at night, in a good way is… thinking of what we accomplished today, and how we will improve on that tomorrow.
