- “I love to be able to have direct effect on things. I can make a decision and see a result in a short period of time. I can make my customers extremely happy.”
- “The Family Council has given us an opportunity to lay the ground rules of what is acceptable behavior – when it is okay to talk about the business and when it is not.”
- “I grew up in a business family. We were always talking business. My parents worked for themselves, and I think a lot of my business ideas came from them. And I’m a perpetual learner.”
