What Words Have Changed Your Life?
I have a few phrases that I constantly think of:
- “Invest in yourself, believe in yourself, and don’t wait for tomorrow. There is nothing that can be done tomorrow that can’t be done today.”
- “Being humble is probably the most overlooked virtue.”
- “Stretch yourself, take on more than you can handle. You’ll be amazed at what you can achieve and the happiness that comes with doing.”
- “Don’t second guess until you see it though. Learn from the wrong decision; otherwise the experience is wasted.”
- “Don’t look back, but forward. The battle of tomorrow is in front of you, but can be won from the lessons of yesterday.”

Why Does the World Need More Leaders with an Entrepreneurial Mindset?

What Is Your Proudest Moment in Business?
I struggle to think of one defining moment that I am the most proud of. Rather, I like to enjoy the many minor moments that together have given me the experience to bring me to where I am today. Every day we have moments of success and failure, and periodically we have grander culminations of success and failure, yet it is the intricate connection of the vast different experiences which collectively give me the confidence to address the challenges that I know I will encounter tomorrow—it is this path that I am the proudest of.
